Exclamation carbs are for lazy people

some jerk i know, formerly known as 'addermk2' once stated 'carbs are for lazy people that are for only running in a straight line and anyone who does needs to get a life. carbs suck especially predator carbs.' WTF??? i like both. efi/carbs both have theyre place, it depends on what you want & how much you want to spend & how you intend to use what you have. but dont take my word for it, sounds like addermk2 has changed his tune [and his name]. dont pi$$ him off, rumor has it he makes mean faces @ people & wets the bed.
