      WOW DON'T FEEL BAD...THATS BECAUSE THE AUTHOR JAKE LAME PAINE IS A COMPLETE RETARD WITH THE MENTAL CAPACITY OF A 2 YEAR OLD. THE DUMB ASS BUFFOON GETS SHIT WRONG EVERY SINGLE TIME. THERE'S THREE THINGS IN THIS LIFE THAT ARE CERTAIN....DEATH, TAXES, AND JAKE LAME ASS PAINE POSTING AN ERRONEOUS POST. YOU CAN BOOK IT EVERY TIME ERRORS GUARANTEED. HE (AND I USE THE WORD "HE" VERY LOOSELY) DOESN'T EVEN PROOFREAD HIS ARTICLES BEFORE HE POSTS THEM SO I GUESS HE WANTS THE WORLD TO KNOW HE'S AN ILLITERATE UNEDUCATED DUNCE. THAT'S JUST HOW JAKE LAME PAINE ROLLS. THE MOTHERFUCKER IS JUST STUCK ON STUPID IT'S JUST THAT SIMPLE.
