Pope says atheists pick & choose their morals. Correct. Today I will be frowning on child abuse & not having a problem with homosexuality.

You link a pic by copying & pasting the link to the page the pic is on, and then highlight your link & click the Img button to give it the correct tag

Right click an image -> select copy image url.
Right click in your post box -> select paste.

The url must end with a .png, .gif or .jpg extension.
Highlight the url and click the Img button above.

Your result should look something like this in your text box:
[ img]http://www.dev.com/elephant.jpg[/img]

Additionally - this site may be of use:
http://imgur.com/

It allows you to easily host images either from your computer or a url. What that means is it will store your picture online and supply you with a direct link which is the url. This helps avoid hotlinking which is often frowned upon.

Don't worry to much about the picture that information is easy for everyone else to see where you are. Each quadrant is 10x10 which places you pretty much in the middle of the green square.

I'll pm you this evening with ways to host and display images.

I remember taking this test a few years ago. Feels like I've stayed about the same on the Left/Right axis, and become a bit more libertarian than I used to be.
