Comment of the Week:
holy shit on the “minor traffic accident” post:
Why is it that whenever anyone comments on this site — on ANYTHING — its always to insult the post, or the website, or another commenter, etc? Why the hell does everyone have to start shit on here. Jesus, you fucking people, don’t you have anything better to do besides getting your god damn panties in a twist?
