my friend told me would you jump in a lake if i told you, i said you bet on it. Here i am today in the hospital bed with 2 teeth intact and 1 ball. Lucky to be alive. But sadly lost a lot of functions, i can still i am now typing with my left toe, it's took about at least an hour just writing tihs, and that sentence was another 30 minutes. Other then less i recommend spotted deck instead of jumping in a lake and get ya deck off.
