        Exactly! From the time I was a kid, never could understand why people were always ignorimg the practical day-to-day while clinging onto the illusion of God and his/her good deeds. Too bad for all the other innocents. Oh, perhaps they are non-believers. Sucks, haha.

        Well, good thing you were able to get out of the car before getting hurt Anthony!!!
