Hey man, I vote this thread is moved back. Africa has 19 threads, and you take the best one? Wait til we tell Flic it has been hijacked.

This is the craziest thread I've ever read - to see the progression from "this is obviously a joke" to "wow she is doing it" to "the haters who thought she wasn't riding enough of the trip" to "her accident" is amazing.. like some movie

and 500 plus posts? wow...
