Google is paying 80$ per hour! Just work for few hours & spend more time with friends and family. Yesterday I bought a top of the range Lancia after having made $9458 this month . Its the most-financialy rewarding I’ve had. It sounds unbelievable but you wont forgive yourself if you don’t check it out

I guess it really wasn't a wheel of death now was it? Probably Bush's fault.

guess "the ground below" means the performer (and the writer) are going on 'without a net'. was it 'Tex' Arkana?

I always thought that one story is ten feet but Googling it I see 12.5' is another definition. Either way 20' is not three stories.
