  • Kam says:

    Yeah Bre but can you teach me how to find a launched rocket!??

    • C-C says:

      I think he truly wants to forget that 'stage' of his life. 'Stage' - get it? Like a rocket!! I sent a couple emails & made a few posts back when that balloon cam went astray and never got so much as a "Hi, thanks for watching". Having gone from Seattle to NYC maybe he is part of the Hackers Relocation Program.

    • b-man says:

      I think the North Koreans found it and re-launched it. Turned out to be a dud again. haha.

    This is interesting. Thanks for posting this. It's good to see stuff like this. Good to see something aside from usual news.

  • justtwentyoeight says:

    Gin, vodka, rum... tequila, some sweet & sour, tiny splash triple sec, splash of coke for color, slice of lemon, all over ice in a hurricane glass... Long Island Iced Tea!

    I agree, truly disgusting... but effective!

  • b-man says:
