I think he elaborated on that a little bit, possibly due to the convos on here about his hand shaping?


Yeah, I could feel a slight prickliness regarding that part. It was like he really wanted it known that he was core. Fair enough. If I was a genius, I'd get pissed with a bunch of internet nerds talking shit about me and it getting passed around as gospel.


The cure for anything is salt water: sweat, tears or the sea.
