    Yep for all Chimpies stupidity - I cant help but admire him - from what I understand - he is an absolute prohibitionist with no problem messing with edge of eugenic ideas... which probably costs as much in lives as he thinks he is saving

    I also do like his talent for manipulating ideas and language in order to achieve his goals- a great example was this comment

    "Prohibition which I donít advocate ó I advocate regulation"

    Which is kind of reminiscent of the rogue vendor (Who despite my colorful relationship with I also admired) who was trying to make it so vendors could only sell either small amounts of unflavored or make it that vendors could only sell premixed nicotine- which would bump up the prices completely and close competition (I dont think he thought the idea out too well)

    When I asked in a pm if this was true

    He simply said

    "I believe in regulation.."

    He also had alot of admirers

    Alot of this stuff is just smoke and mirrors in language and information - but when you start to really look at things- it all becomes easier to argue against

    This just goes to show how smart chapman is.
    He deliberately uses the politicians and the public ignorance about totally different products to lump everything in together to "prove" his case and make it stronger.

    I know right

    I think I have been just butt lucky - The housey is into the whole DIY build your own and customize your PC electronics thing - where as big midget went into programming and marketing - both are into deep internet talk - so I kind of have my bases covered -

    But I do like tech theory and innovation which I get all excited about - Im just not very practical at things at times - I go all blurry and zone out

    To each their own talent!

    Cheers Rebel, wow your so lucky!

    I thought i better get back on the bike since it is so quiet in here. I actually quite like it. The hangers on are quite a decent bunch too!

    I have never had a problem with the pop-ups and spam, thanks to Avast free anti-virus. The crappy vendors that don't put in are easily ignored and it was nice to see Hi-Liq going gangbusters. Ryan did a marvellous job.

    Hopefully one day 'the supreme watsit' cleans house. Long live AVF!!!

    Cant stay right now - But I dropped in because I know this picture! It has an awesome cute story to go with it too!

    One morning while reading a newspaper, Jarbas Agnelli saw a photograph of birds on an electric wire. He cut out the photo and was inspired to make a song using the exact location of the birds as musical notes. He was curious to hear what melody the birds created.He sent the music to the photographer, Paulo Pinto, who told his editor, who told a reporter and the story ended up as an interview in the newspaper. It ended up Winner of the YouTube Play Guggenheim Biennial Festival.

    cheers Reb- yep it is a special image with a special back story...

    now you also said...<span style="color: rgb(17, 17, 17); font-family: Roboto, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 14px; white-space: pre-wrap;">


    is that an example of your word wrapping wire problem ?

    often when copying text - from webpages... it helps to use 'paste special' and select unformatted text.. or, quicker, to drop it into into Notepad..which strips out the formatting crud.... before using it elsewhere..

    dunno.. but have a good day

    Ahh no lynne

    its about ... you know how you format your document in either google docs or in word - then you transfer it over to a box to publish to a premade template box

    and the template you have is nice and tidy when you pick it

    but when you publish your document in the premade template thing they give you

    the text runs everywhere over the screen so that instead of having something tidy - you end up with text running over the text boxes and you have to scroll wayyyy over to the left or right to be able to read it once its been published

    The whole thing just ends up looking messy and unreadable

    So its more of a technical thing than an easy fix - just not sure though if its because of my end or because free blogg sites are prone to being pita - Ill find out on the weekend

    But thanks for trying anyways

    Ahh - the extra code with the video - yeah I often have issues with that here - but usually clean it up when I see it ... I was just lazy and in a rush this time
