That would so become a PITA, good idea tho

On a local forum that I run, I considered making it so when a premium member (250 posts or more on our forum) tried to enter the "Gentleman's Club" it would route you to a youtube Conway Twitty music video and only after you watch the video can you get access. I thought about it just to annoy people but decided against it.

that's funny...... so true, I haven't either.

I guess I'd better make up for it and start a bunch

"hey look at this kit..... I can get 1000whp from a 50 trim turbo full of awesomeness and it's only $120 off ebay :D"

a week goes by.....

"yeah it kind of blew up before I could even drive it. damn metal shavings....."
