    I'm curious to see whether CD can pull this all the way to Santiago. If he does, the conspiracies will be flying everywhere in F5 :D

    I would chalk it up to it being within his ability. Thats wide eyed bewilderment to the rest of us. HE might even be mad enough to take the front out of it today! long stage.

    A lot of Despres hate in here these days, it's pretty thick. I do find it interesting that it seems most of those that have interacted with him personally have a much different view of him.

    Very interesting google translation. Without gravity he wouldn't have fallen into the ditch!
