    and the kid loved beer (apparently).

    i remember the grips on my bmx would always tear at the end of the bar. hated that.

    i was guessing he fell in water, but that wasn't the case it seems. very unlucky.
    Yossarian: don't worry. nothing's going to happen to you that won't happen to the rest of us.
