I whole heartedly agree... After all is this not what it is all about. To give those less priviledged a chance as well?
At the end of it all you don't want to go into the grave peacefully and quietly in well preserved body... You want to go sort off skidding in sideways, full of bruises and scratches saying: "Man what a ride!!!"

It would appear as if this subject has people a bit quiet?

Some fo the guys must be getting very worried :) hehehe

Porridge... You wanna volunteer? There are certain sideline benefits like a bottle of Chivas to drown what remains of your reputation :twisted: :twisted:

*CRICKET CRICKET* *CRICKET CRICKET*

Thats the sound of an insect... Not the sound of the game.

It's gone very very quiet here. Hopefully due to the fact that someone is searching deep within himself (or herself - No one has ever said the mankini cannot be worn by a sexy babe!) see if they can find their way open to don the tiny thread...

I have a reputation?? :hmz:

I'll decline, as I would obviously appear far too manly in IT and therefore annoy the husbands of the adoring ladies ... :whistle:
The simple rule to follow with all animals is one of respect.
