Also; the word "whoa" is spelled just how I spelled it. It is not spelled "woah, woha" or any other way you can cook up. It is spelled "whoa." Deal with it.

"Cool" is spelled "cool." It is not spelled "kewl, cewl" or any other way you can cook up. Sorry to burst your bubbles.

You better believe that I cross posted this. You should, too.
