Rather than actually touch 90% of the substance of what I said, you chose to go for the 10%, completely ignoring the jist of the comment. Kudos to you, for your complete lack of refutation skills.

Anonymous is a man! A Big man! ...

With a girl... stuff... yeah... right... Anonymous told you!

@Not Needed - lol. Anon loves you dude, we really do. Comparing the actions of Japan in WW2 to 9/11 - that's epic. Seriously. Genius. I can't think of words to match that kind of comparision. You rule.

@everyone else - keep it going, this is almost as good as reading the BOFH ooo yeah almost friday.
