    2 days ago two men dressed as Nazi Faggots looking like Brevik and Luka raced through a red like at the corner of Robson and Denman heading toward the park. They had to swerve around the car infront stopped at the light on Robson heading west at at 75K attempted to murder me. A dozen people at Starbuck saw me levitate above the car at lightening speed and contort my body into the shape of the car so that only my shirt and under arm and pant legs were brushed by the silver sports car. The crowd went oooooh and I strolled on. I am disable and should not have been able to do this. In fact it was humanly impossible as I had one meter to react and only one foot on the ground. Condolences to the lady whose time on criminally insane planet Earth is up, as I have died before and resurrected myself I can assure you that she is in a better place than this evil ignorant place.
