(573) 356-7482

This is Ellis Smith and I am 6-2" tall and weigh 180 pounds. I am 76 years old and suffer from severe vision problems; my hand-eye coordination is also slipping badly.

Rick, can you tell me who to call to sign up to become a Formula I race car driver?

Rick, Julie may have a point about our rudeness. Please clean up your act. I, for my part, will exit Columbia and return to that small (~6,000 students) campus of the UM System that's been notorious for 139 years for producing sociopaths. One of those "sociopaths" is currently running UM System.

Ohhh I don't know Ellis... All we are really doing is attempting to fulfill our childhood hopes and dreams.. Trying to get our childhood back.. Even if we aren't children anymore.....

Formula Racing has not come to Columbia yet, I don't believe. But, I hear you can find some nice dirt tracks here...... LOL.

Lets drop everything, our jobs and families, and waddle our fat asses (well apparently thats not the case for you) onto the field of our dreams, just so we can try to get a moment of our childhood back..

I think you have a good idea about what I find humorous here...
