This was a tough one for sure. Went with 4/3/98 though. That 2nd set is just too strong.

I'm going with Vegas on this one...close, but again I'm not too huge on that second set from 4/3 like everyone else it.

^Word. I still think the second set from 4/4 is the best of the run. First set too, maybe... :think:
we are all being pursed. some have been found, some are still running. some will keep running until they get to the end of the road, straight off the proverbial cliff. you don't have to turn back, you just have to turn around.
