Thursdays for Scotsmen, Mon. But only when there's an 'r' in the month. And you have to do it with a pike while on horseback.

As for Hywel, don't risk it. The Welsh are masters of the longbow, and nine times out of ten they'll get you first. Best do him on the first Tuesday in July, when a shotgun is allowed.

I don't want to make Ellie nervous (she seems like a nice girl), so I'm not going to reveal the approved dates and methods for the Irish. Also I'm half Irish myself, and I don't want to end up half dead just to give you Brits a bit of sport with your crossbows on the last Wednesday in August.

Erm, if anyone's in Scotland on the last Wednesday in August and spots a walking suit of armour with stripy socks...that'd be me.

Sorry. Ellie, it slipped out. But don't worry. As long as we're not standing on one leg and whistling 'Paddy McGinty's Goat' we'll enjoy the full protection of the Law.

gotta remember not to have a mouthful of drink when reading posts on here...

*starts mopping up tea from computer screen*

That seems to be going around--I caused Paul's to short circuit yesterday. ;)

As for the law in question, they better change it before someone gets hurt, hehe. Having a law that says that one can kill another in any situation other than self-defense is just asking for trouble.

Take Virginia Tech for instance . . . . May they all find peace.

"...As my kids get older I wish the legal age was changed to 22! "

Julie - mine are now 21 and 22. Believe me, the age of majority should be at least 30.

"Hmmm, I can't stand Gordon Brown, but if anyone in that party is the devil incarnate, it's John Reid."

Nah, John Reid is harmless, if also useless. It's a little known fact that all politicians have their 'Right Honourable' names selected by their MP peers upon entering the House of Commons, based on their perceived strengths and weaknesses. Their given names are erased permanently from all databases, never to be known or referred to again. So that we (the public) cannot see what we're getting, their 'new' names are simply anagrams of their characteristics. It's obvious when you think about it; after all, what are the chances of anyone actually being christened: "Anthony Charles Lynton Blair"?

Taking the above into account, we can see that:

John Reid = "Dire John" (which sums up his abilities nicely)

Gordon Brown = "Born - do wrong" (ditto)

Anthony Charles Lynton Blair = "Born actor. Lethally nanny-ish!"

Monica, with the way the under-30s generally behave, I tend to agree with you. Marriage, drinking, even sex should probably wait until the 30s . . . or even the 40s! From what I hear, the female sexual peak is 36 anyway, lol.

Paul: have you always been this leery of the people in the government or is it a relatively recent consideration? Believe me, I truly understand the feeling. There are some people in my government that make me feel quite . . . nervous at times as well.

Yipee, something to look forward too...

Monica, every time my kids try to pull something I remember doing, I feel the need to apologize to my parents...I guess it's payback time.

Welcome to the club! I'd get into it futher, but that's one of those "Don't Get Me Started" sort of things. Also a bit risky here on the forum since it's easy to step on somebody's toes. In that sense, it might be a good idea to be circumspect and restrain ourselves when discussing contemporary politics.

If you must, tread lightly please.

Why don't we just take the bull by the horns and make the AOC 75?
It will solve a lot of problems for everything.
That said I have enjoyed reading all these asides and the amusing photo posts as well
cheers

Mark, I'd better not tell you my true thoughts about politicians, bearing in mind Mike's request to: "tread lightly"!

Although the female sexual peak is between the ages of 35 and 40, the male sexual peak is reached in the late teens and then starts to decline after age 21. (I can vaguely remember some strange feelings I experienced back in 1875 but it's all a bit hazy now.) Given the above ages, an example of the perfect couple is attached.

Go on, who can name the film?

Yeah, I know about age of the male sex peak. I remember that time, too, however vaguely.

This might explain why those American female school teachers are snatching up the teenage boys from high school (although 14 is a bit young. They must want to try to break them in before they reach their peak). Still, that type of thing is NOT viewed as the "perfect match" here, by no means.

And, yes, I've seen the movie, but I cannot think of the name. Sorry.

1875? Damn, Paul! That was a long time ago, hehe. It's all a distant memory now.

Mike: Good advice. I will certainly watch my step. ;)

Martin: I would have said that setting the AOC at 75 would cause a problem, since most if not all of those over 75 probably don't (or rarely) have sex, but then I saw Paul's recent picture of "the perfect couple" and decided against it.
