I wrote this a few days ago but deleted it thinking it cruel and I shouldn't do say that... but who gives a ****.

I learned, the other day, that I can throw cain toads farther if I hold them like I was going to skip a flat rock across the water. They fly out about 25 feet then deploy their arms and legs and begin their downward decent into the tall grass. A trajectory of about 15 degrees seems to be about best.
No cain toads were harmed in the writing of this response

They're pretty resilient. I can do the same with cat although my favorite pastime is to hold him up vertical under my chin to make a Ho Chi Minh beard. Another ting wot I 'ave learnt is that Sea Shepherd has successfully ended the slaughter of whales by the Japanese, at least for this season - dare I say it ... AWESOME

That an ipod shuffle can survive a front-loader washing programme at 30 degrees and a 800 rpm spin.

I don't think so, just posted a youtube clip of some girl doing some very funny (IMO) sign language.
If anyone wants the link they will have to PM me.
I never know how some things get caught in the filters here and some outrageous stuff gets left alone, anyway its not my place to question the nice mods.

Point out the outrageous stuff please, we obviously can't see every thread and post that's out there.

It wasn't suitable for this forum. If you don't like my deletion of both it, and your attempt to get round the swear filter, take it up with Sue by pm.

That a good friend of mine and who I had something going on with, died of cancer in 2004.

Not everything on Facebook is fun.

Deepest sympathy As you say, not everything on there is fun, and sometimes the things you find can be a real shock.

Tell me about it. I have four facebook friends who I'm very worried about at the moment.

Sorry to hear of your sad news, Amazulu.
