Wouldn't bacon encourage the use of teeth. That doesn't sound too friendly!

Water. If you want flavor, add a slice of lemon. I simply don't see the appeal of stomach-eating, fat-inducing, volatile acids as a drink.

Wrong, partially right, wrong, very right, acceptable.

Get a spell check on your computer, you lazy Brit. It can spell the tough words for you (since, apparently, cutting-and-pasting isn't allowed in the UK)

It's not. For example, I haven't used it once in this thread.

How's that for a deep thought.

Dear Eric,

sorry to bother you again but i have been having a somewhat heated debate with my flatmate about who originally said "I think, therefore I am". for some reason he has sadi both Aristotle and Plato (he quotes Plato a lot), however i feel its one of those german philosophers but not neitsche. I am sure it's one of those clever bastards in the that song by Monty Python but as my google has crashed due to a spellcheck download problem i thought i would ask you.
Also AS I DIDN'T SEE YOU at the meet n' greet last year did you get the ginger cordial i put out for you?
