    With the advent of YouTube and Andy Warhol's concept of 15 minutes of fame, it was inevitable that people would do some really stupid stuff, tape it, and post it for everyone to see. Some criminals have taped themselves in the middle of crimes. In this 4 year old Toyota Venza commercial, at...
  5. What do YOU shave with?

    Community Help
    Just a heads up that I'm going to be testing out a new photo gallery to see if it might be a good replacement for the one we already have. The company that made the one we have has ceased production of that product and support is going away, we can continue to use it but my concern would be...
