Kelu - What else is there to do?   You did forget fishing :)
If you are referring to the that really big fish which I posted on fb last year, that was in Tenerife. If you are referring to fishing in the red areas of some cities, I can't say it here.

I'm in. I've got $78.34 CDN saved up.
Did you finished your house improvements which you started last year?

You are working in the p0rn industry?

For the moment you can't do it ;)

For my car? I don't like insurance, car insurances don't apply at the track around here because is not a public road. You break it, you pay to fix it because I saw how you fix Kappas :lol:

Fixing a roll over is no big deal. 
:D

Only takes 30 minutes to fix and hit the next course.

Kelu
That was some really nice progress on each lap. 6 seconds faster on your last lap.  Well done!!!

I think he is addicted.  Carving through turns gives a rush way more than going straight fast.
