The what jsharr did on his summer vacation thread.

Now that jsahrr is off on a weeks vacation, it's time to make up adventures we think he could or should be having to compare with what actually happened when he gets back. Whatever we make up wont compare to what really happens in Ruben's life, but it could be interesting. Who wants to start?

He wanted to prove to the boys how big his man card is and went to try and get a bass bare handed. Little did he realize it was a pool of piranhas.

Hooked up a 300 acre sail to the Lexington that says, using 150 foot characters, "Hey Foo: I am the true threadkiller!". He is hoping that a google-cam-car drives by.
