Yes, KILL "BOB" FOREVER. I've quit my job for "Bob" - several times - and
slogged through 6 years of more shit than a good Subgenius should ever
order in a French restaurant. Call me "dumbass" as much as you like - if
you want my faith, you better fucking show me a miracle. NOW.

A Furmanski Surge.
Gnarly. Waves ten feet tall in sets, and I look up and it was like
DUDE! Fuckin' FORTY FOOT TUBE! I, like, had a KILLER Furmanski Surge!
Fuckin' car drives into my lane and I about Furmanski Surged
*in my pants!*
A Furmanski that didn't let go for hours.
Coming out of THAT Furmanski Surge, I didn't notice the approaching
TRACTATOR BEAMS! FUCK! My heart beating wildly
and the Furmanski Surge taking over my senses, my foot
slammed the auxiliary-nitro-booster-go-dammit pedal and
I SHOT OFF!
