Believe it or not we sort of agree. (Who'd of thunk it!) The problems are not in the making of these things, they're in the possible mis~use of them. I also say....MAKE AWAY...they just MAY come up with something good! The only thing that I don't think is right is not TELLING anyone that it's a ~tampered~ product.

To ~screw~ em as in "not buying"...we have to know that there's a REASON to ~screw~ em in the foist place!!!
