Congrats JD and feel better. Yup badass for sure. Love those rims...

Sometimes when I reflect on all the beer I drink, I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work. I think, "It is better to drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver."

Tell the truth, you're an inch taller now, aren't you?

Those pics left me blind due to over-exposure to pure awesomeness.
