Yey! Thanks bipedalhumanoid.

Secular 'Xmas' How do you celebrate?

I think we should have one time a year to give presents to our families & friends, have a knees up & meet up with people who we haven't seen for ages. I also resent the fact that all holidays seem to have been hi-jacked by the religious - I don't want people to assume I'm a 'Christian' because I (se...

Let's face it, they are so much better at slithering than we are. Let them keep the existing schools. (Would you buy a business if y...
