Up in smoke.

So the owner of my company has a limo for partying or whatever, i guess he and friends were on there way somewhere on saturday when POOF! the car started on fire, everyone barely made it out as they watched the thing burn to the ground on the side of the highway.

Tell them not to freebase while driving.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

The front of the car doesn't seem to be damaged too badly. Most of the paint is still there whereas the rest of the car is burnt to a crisp.

Hey Moparboyy. If your boss asks you to go start his car for him. Don't do it!
