I need fewer distractions in my life lol.
So.......what do I win? I've never been to Vegas before, so maybe I'll be needing a ski session in the desert someday. Or a ride to the nearest wh***house.

Yes on the ski session if you ever get here. The wife wouldn't approve of the other activity though

You know it's funny, I can tell immediately if any of my inline six engines are misfiring. Couldn't tell with this V8, not by sound anyways.
