In a stroke of horrendously bad luck it appears that not one, not two, not three but all four of the tires in the car taking likeshine and painteddog to FA:U exploded on the freeway. The car is Painteddog's, and they're both too awesome to have that happen to them, and need help. Fortunately they're okay, but I can only imagine they're a bit stranded at the moment, at least financially, even if they are able to get them fixed.
Come on, imagine being stuck in New Jersey for more than you want to be. *bites nails*
