  2. Further elaboration, the people not paying attention to their tasks during their RC duty are basically showing a lack of respect or at least interest in their fellow racers/club members.

In doing so you can also be milder towards others who carry convictions which conflict with your own." Sad Loss of a good man, my condolences
  8. Thanks for making me lose, you bastard!
  9. How about a seperate “comments on the random pics” topic where any discussion sparked by the pictures can be held? These pictures are best enjoyed without Interspersion of comments, observations or discussion, regardless of how interesting they may be.
