  12. I loved the comment about things looking weak on camera when they took huge huevos to pull off, but don't sweat it, I for one have done a few things (nothing very cool) on camera and know how dissapointing it looks. Plus there are a bunch of us out here who can see that its a huge thing that you guys are all doing. Dont get hurt too bad, but keep havin fun and we'll keep watchin. You guys have finally put something on MTV worth watching. Thanks
