I didnt dig myself a hole at all you think I care about what a bunch of lame posters think? You're the one who looks like an arrogant ass, bub. I moved it to youre wall because I didnt want to make you look foolish on the comment section. I think maybe you should STFU.
Look at you trying to sound all smart on the comments section. All I was saying is that we shouldnt say stupid crap over the internet to someone who has said other stupid crap. You stoop down to their level when you do that. Leave that kid alone. We all say things that are stupid, even yourself. Get off your high horse, bub.
