Guess which one we are in.
So is a Brazilian iPad
just like a regular iPad except for a small, erm, touchpad near the, erm, bottom
It's a temple
My body has a "evaporative cooling" system, I call it "sweating"

My geology teacher told me about shale gas in 1964
"revoke any legislation that has not been sucessfully prosecuted in the past ten years."
The idea of laws is that they PREVENT people from doing Bad Things.
Therefore a successful law will NEVER be prosecuted.
I have two science heroes
Yuri Gagarin - he really did venture into the unknown with the great possibility of death

3. Only 15 presets (what!!)
4. Sound quality is piss poor
5. No 'record to disk' facility

It's just a load of craters.
