<Off topic> So you know I always try to show the real side of those black, wierd, shaved or hairy "freaks" called metal fans-they are really nice people. I think you are doing the same for these badlanders. Here is some looking after his missus, what's so odd about that?</Off Topic>
You must have got soaked yourself doing this sequence- a common problem-rain, cold, mud takes away dividing lines
