Dumb butt

Boy I feel really stupid. Two weeks ago when the weather started cooling I hooked up my trickle charger to my battery so it could charge. I saw the green light come on and thought I was good to go. Today the weather was in the 70's so I uncovered it to ride to ind the battery was dead. Well Dumbass me forgot to plug in the drop cord.

If you're trying to get into Med School, don't worry, 'cause that won't be on the MCAT exam.

If you run naked around a tree at approximately 87mph, there's a very real possibility of fu(k!ng yourself...

When you leave it on 6 volts all winter and have to replace a battery... thats a problem.

At least you didn't plug it in correctly and still find a dead battery. Then you'd have to spend some $$$.

Six times in two days I tried to take a sip of my beer with the cap still on the bottle.
