Default Why call it

I'm still trying to figure out how they can call a movie about a bunch of 4 cylinder sportbikes "torque".



They shoulda called it "Cost/Performance Ratio Rides Again " or maybe "Apparency of Torque Through Mechanical Multiplication Kicks A" or something like that. How about "Shrieking Redlines of Death"? Or "Another Crappy Mindless Movie for the Edification of the MTV Generation".



By the way, life will be easier for you. It's all downhill now that you're over the hill.

Dorque. Since KPaul liked it, it's fitting.

I like how there's no mention of what he did to get covicted of manslaughter in the article. Just a lot of stuff on how good a person he was, and a little on how he could be considered an a$$hole. What's the deal with that mention of him telling this teacher how to get away with hitting some rude kid? What the hell kind of person is the guy? He is a reckless killer and I hope he gets the 11 year maximum.

Are you looking for the standard FXNRGNQPTOTHB or the fuel injected ultra-classic FXNRGNQPTOTHB-EFIUC?
