Deleted several posts of trolls in here.


Damn, this becomes tidious. Perhaps we should only allow update posts for such big threads...

To desert dwellers green the colour of foliage is their idea of heaven, so it's woven into their mythologies. It's perfectly understandable.

Because big ben is british?
