    So, what’s your position on a guy with razor-sharp blades of steel strapped to his feet jumping over a row of children? Are you for it, or against it? Personally, though I wouldn’t say I’m 100% against it, I’m not completely comfortable with the idea, either. Or at least I wouldn’t be if it were […]
