I just couldn't think of anything else to say though. There is supposed to be no point in posting comments on the video on YouTube, I really should've been only commenting on here (btw I'm not on about the spoiler thing itself). I hope a kitten didn't die in that spoiler, but I think one did, which is very sad to her Sad

I don't see the point of why I do that, I've done that on some TM Master Cup videos before and I don't like I want comment on any others if I'm afraid of posting too many spoilers and then getting blocked by Cynon, I obviously can't put attitude up to good use with this problem I have with posting spoilers when I shouldn't. This should be a lesson I need to learn.

Well it's too late now as since he blocked me, I can't post comments on te ARLA videos anymore, but at least I can still favourite them but now I'm not so sure about my fire of making more ARLA crash comps.

Valid Point. But still, I personally enjoy the game, and will be buying NTG2 (not being called NTG12) when it comes out.

don't be concerned, why would you be concerned? don't be.

Becuase when I walked in, it was full screen on his computer, and there was a presumably naked girl in a bath on the screen. He also told me he had watched about 50 videos just like it.

No, not every day, it's just that whenever something really weird happens, I feel like coming on here to talk about it so that everyone can respond at it.

I have a feeling that I'm thinking of 2 new threads that I think should be created on this forum:

Sounds Of The ARLA Elite Series (all different music in ARLA races in the past and present)

Best TM Master Cup Races (Our own opinions of what we think is the best ever race in the Series)
