Today, I broke the Coin Dozer app. I didn’t even mean to. Not only that, I’m still not sure how it happened.
I saw a black Volkswagen Golf on the road today. It had a complete blackout kit – including a custom jet black Wokwagen logo on the hatchback – and the windows were tinted darker than a Nazi SS officer’s uniform.
