One time I was at the county fair and they had RVs on display there and my buddy totally noticed one of them had the keys left in it, so we hid in its shiatter until after the fair was closed. Anyhow, we totally were out in the parking field doing donuts when the cops showed up but my buddy is an awesome driver and he got out to the highway without hitting anybody and we was in this high-speed chase until he figured out the farking thing only had 3 gallons or so of diesel in the tank so he pulled off the road and ditched out one of the side windows. Anyhow, all the cops followed him and left the RV so I snuck out and hid in the woods, and there was this Indian dude out there that was doing some ritual or something and I don't know what he was trying to bless or pray for or what, but he had totally good weed. Anyhow, the goddam indian dude told me he was part of the Winnebago tribe. Coincidence? I think not. It's cosmic.

Heh. I'm reading a book about America before Columbus, and one of the civilizations was called by their neighbors "people who fight with us all the farking* time."

*The farking was implied.

Who the hell are you IRL? You should read 'Rule of the Bone' by Russell Banks. You're like the main character, only all hopped up on goofballs.

Actually, no, I got it. You should write a fiicking novel. Seriously, I would totally buy it. Can you keep that up for 200 pages, and make it all center around a single story?

our planet got tagged a lot but when taggers see fresh art they get pissed.

I was also thinking it looked like your GF's thong

Your girlfriend has great taste in thongs

Know that already...;P

Her ass is big enough to drive an RV on?

And equipped with speed holes none-the-less.

Oh, the holes are for speed. Got it.

Isn't it supposedly difficult to draw a perfect circle? Something along the likes of "you have to be crazy"? If so, even with a computer aided drafting of this, wouldn't it also be somewhat difficult to drive in a large circle without somehow holding the steering wheel in near enough to the same place?

/did I not read enough of the background?
//love the drifting idea. I'd pay to watch that.

It was created in May by driving in circles with an RV equipped with GPS and adderall.

But didn't you think it was a trifle unnecessary to see the crack in the Indian's bottom?
