Default Fanatic or what

FAST HARRY
You seriously need help!
I think you should enroll in RCA[RADIO CONTROL ANONIMOUS]
A small group of ill fanatics that help each other discuss their
problems.
Hosted by pshychologists with years of experience with this disorder.
Proobably a hard habit too kick,from what I have heard.
The full on RC junkies very seldomly kick the habit.
Merry Christmas

Why did you feel the need to quote that whole entire post? I don't need to read it twice!

Also, it is ANONYMOUS.

Anyways, FastHarry, you missed out number 23 on your list. Why is it blank?

re : fastharry

OH MY GOD !!! you could be driving a really nice full sized car for what it cost you to buy/maintain all those cars

and thats amazing, all I can think of is the butt chewing you would recieve daily for "playing with toy cars" like I get, and heven help me if something goes wrong and I need spares

P.S. I only own one rc, a ntc3 but after seeing your list I feel like a "try hard"
