Re: September 11th

Why would you want to vote Green when you could waste your vote properly by voting Lib Dem?

Re: Brazilian Wandering Spider Attack

What exactly is a "community hospital"? It sounds suspiciously like it's run by the WI.

Re: Laptop burns!

I came here expecting geek-related sexual injuries.

I now realise, of course, that this was a foolish hope.

I can't even begin to imagine how stupid a townie would have to be to think that taking on a member of the RMP was anything even remotely resembling a good idea.
