Bad ass!

I must be old, my first thought was careful man, don’t fuck up your goggles. Followed by, I hope him banging on the hatch was a complete surprise for the shitheads inside.

That was pretty bad ass, I want whatever boots they were wearing for my next venture stream fishing. I keep hearing conflicting reports on dollar value, seems every news source is different. Regardless, a whole lotta drugs off the streets!
