But they wont even make it to the next round mr.GeorgeWashington via alt acc.

I would like to be GeorgeWashington, it would mean I posted more than 20k comments in a year. But there is only 24h in a day sadly.

2018-04-24 21:21
You are just jealous coz Gambit is not favorite.
2018-04-24 21:22
but this still does not change the fact that the QBF did not show anything steep after the major
