    T-Bell does it to me. All the cats here at Orange go out for Taco Bell at least 2 times a week and I constantly have to decline for just that reason.

    I wish I had the money to supprt GAS, but fortunetly I don't have it right now.
     
  9. It really doesn't matter how much money you have. Tell me you can look at, say, a Ken Smith 6-stringer and not get a little rumbly in your tumbly... :p

    I was going to say the exact same thing just now but you beat me to it. It needs to go in the newbie links or the FAQ or something.

    I think it's safe to say that this thread should officially be a sticky. It comes up seriously about three times a month.
