  • Wicked man we like this!

    Joe Nebula says:
  • Para el español (o hispanohablante) que ha contestado al comentario…. “Sick”: en este contexto, no es que este llamando a nadie enfermo ni esta diciendo nada peyorativo. Es algo asi como decir de manera coloquial “mola” cuando algo llama mucho la atencion o parece una locura.

    Anda que meterse en designboom para criticar sin tener mucha idea…
