Welcome to Polynauts Central, here on Saturday, August 11th, 2012. My my, hasn't it been a serious week! But now, the week is over, and it's time for the weekend. And what signals the weekend better than dancing! This is Adam Jensen, cutting a rug. I believe this is the one thing he actually asked for.
Gets me every time...
NOTICE: ALL talk about THE DARK KNIGHT RISES must only take place in this forum. No spoiling the movie for anyone here on Polynauts. It's finally out worldwide so have a thought for those who haven't seen it yet and please, keep it clean of any bats in here.
