Well if so, thanks to the power of sciences and the interweb you now can consume Powerthirstâ„¢.
With this beverage you can topple tall things that were previously….. untoppable, and have many male babies. Untoppable male babies with guns for arms.
Just listen to this commercial (written by comedian Mark Little) and see what Powerthirstâ„¢ can do for you. With thousands of satisfied customers and Richard Holland with son Max as spokesmen you shouldn’t wait to get some.

The Ultimate Art School Building wasn’t built in NYC of course (space issues) or Chicago (would have to be built with cut stone) or Kansas City even (doesn’t have fountains in the design) no the Ultimate Art School building was built in none other then the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore.
The School of Art, Design and Media a 5-story facility nestled in the corner of the campus with a forest to it’s back blends the heart shaped grass and glass building amazingly with the surroundings, gives a relaxing cool demeanor and most importantly is now the best place in the world to play hacky sack (aka footbag).
