Probably the biggest prick move I did in high school was name the Audi conv I bought, Chadworth. The name IMO drips hobnobbing at its finest but it sticks...

Know quite a few guys named John and Michael who are killing it rn. Also know afew Johns and michaels who are not.

I have left this site peacefully. The >1.5x MS / SB ratio is interesting. Once my computer updates and removes me from Incognito, I will be washed away like all humans eventually. I don't know when that will happen.

Not sure they are ultra elite yet, but if I ever have a son they will either be named Jameson,
Hannibal, or Miles. Give it 20-30 years one of them will be at the top of the list.

Oh shit........ Sterling....... that's certainly on the list.
