wow 45, you really aim high. First off you are Canadian and well, thats regretable but then you take up belly boarding? Way to underachieve yourself into a shit-hole man. Just hum a Brian Adams song and step in front of a snow plow or something.

(and they wonder why the rest of the world doesnt likes them? well out of that 5% that are actually nice)
