Me and wtp well aren't following the trend

Just because we bought some slams.

Silver xlt's, funnily enough we both bought them on the same day even though we live on different parts of the globe. And they cost almost exactly the same

Unless you bought silver XLT's today, you cannot be in the club.

I heard a rumor that people who have slams die younger than others.

You should be elated on how easy it is to impale yourself in the chest while attempting barspins and x-ups.

No matter how hard Gunz tries not to be negative, he still is.

I find it's easier to 'tweak' x-ups and motowhips and such with them too.

Tables are just crazy with them. So much leverage.

You don't know what sliders are? When you slide your front wheel out of a fakie without lifting it off the ground
