Our last Prime Minister , who was close to 70 at the time, grabbed ahold of a protester who got to close (The RCMP were eating donuts) and ripped a few of his teeth out.

Read it here. With picture!

What you'd really want to say is "Yo necesito ayuda" where "ayuda" is used as a noun, because in "Yo necesito ayudar," "ayudar" is used as a transitive verb, which requires a direct object.

Sure....go ahead.... blame us for threadjacking. I suppose we had it coming. [weep]

Well, if you can forgive us being ourselves, welcome to the GC forums. [Big Grin] Enjoy yourself and stick around. We're not so bad.

(You'd best do a proper intro by starting a new thread in the "All About You" forum.)

Usually they start out as linen and we usually cotton to them, but too often they end up as woolen. :baa: Watch out for Cap'n Vic, though, as he can spin a mean yarn! [Wink]

Ionno, if you start making reference to wool, I'd worry about Spungo, not the Cap'n.

Speaking of wool, I think this site has everything:

http://www.sheepacrosstheworld.com/cgi-bin/pics.pl

Pictures, videos, a store, a "Sheep Tracker" (handy handy), and a "Sheep Humor" section.

How can you lose?

Forget them till after collage and you land a solid job. Nothing attracts women like cash. Also, if you can get into shape, that's the number two thing. Forget the "developing a personality" thing. That's just the female's nice way of saying you are too fat/poor/geeky/etc to date. Remember that rule, personality for show, cash for a pro.

Normally, I'd come in here and tar and feather you for being a troll, but sadly, for a lot of woman, you're spot on.

But remember, the women WORTH caring about are NOTHING like that.

I'm not trolling, I'm offering sound advice. Seriously, I would wait until you have a more stable platform for what is "you" it's way to easy to get manipulated early on, especially with how sensitive geeks tend to be.

No. You are offering your opinion. An opinion that is not shared by 3 or 4 Billion people in the world who are in committed relationships.

Why don't you quit beating around the bush and say what you really think. What has led you to this conclusion? A girl was mean too you? She wouldn't go out with you? Could it be that you are so close minded and opinionated that a girl doesn't want to be in a relationship with you? Does the fact that a girl doesn't have a penis make her evil and manipulative? Maybe you should date within your gender?

As was mentioned earlier, a relationship is about give and take. When you make it to adulthood, you will either figure this out, have a string a short bitter relationships or be alone.

And unfortunately with people like you offering "advice" I would have plenty of other single geeks to hang out with. Look, 3-4 billion people in "healthy" relationships? As of 1-03-2005 the global population is 6,427,572,544. Now even a 50% is a very optimistic approximation. The point is, I was warning him against taking the first thing that comes along. I have made the mistake of trusting a woman's word and it has come back to bite me. If I was as bitter as you are trying to make me out to be, I would have sworn off women, but I know enough of them to keep me trying. So if you must try and flame someone, I suggest that you try some of the Dazing Forums that dot the internet. Thank you.

If you wanna get technical, the world population has cracked the 6.5 Billion mark. In either case, there are a few BILLION more people than you getting along just fine.

You don't take critism well either, do you? You see, that is probably half you problem. You don't listen.

Blanket statements like 'Women are bad' shows your underlying fears and insecurities of women and relationships.

How old are you?

I haven't actually said "women are bad". I said they look for cash and looks first. Which is true. Also, most people do not take criticism of proven fact very well. 27 years plenty of time to gather proof and experience in being backstabbed by those you offer trust. I am telling him, he is 16 and he should enjoy his life before he risks it on a woman, wait till 21 or so.

Ok, this is just getting worse. You are 27 and you think like this? I had you pegged for 14-16, and I don't mean that as an insult. I am just flabbergasted that people actually think like that in this day and age.

No it isn't true. No more true than: Black people love watermelon. White men can't jump. Asians can't drive. Brits have bad teeth. Do you think any of these statements coming out of someones mouth will garner them respect from anyone?

I think newf said it best:
