Goo! No thanks. Besides, I probably have to spend $1k on a new clutch for this car first.

I'm thinking about getting my hands on some hardware as well...

Even if it's worse, atleast you'll be transparent and tell us what's going on :D and take feedback seriously!

What? That over-processed pasty-a$$ stuff still exists? (eh, actually I really knew it still existed but I've been thinking about a lifestyle change lately and thought I would try out "bread snob" for a bit)
