Either that or the Touareg, get a diesel if possible, power is there and the reliability is exceptional. Also get one with air suspension as well as the extended warranty, they are not cheap to fix.......

If you do, does it mean you'll be relegated to a life of unfulfilling fapping, destined never to see your gymnastic honey hole in action again? If so, fix the car. You don't want Dig moving in on that action.

I got no heat in the house, right now the boiler is a higher priority. Will check back on this thing after I thaw my balls.

190Es, when processed properly, make excellent concrete re-enforcement bar.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
