This is why it is so important and sustainable as well because it is inherantly quite simple yet spans the globe. It is I feel as well a very underrated accomplishment
which our society has simply adopted and taken for granted yet without it well... where would we be?
Flush toilet!

Hello Twokay,

I'd have to guess the internet, for reasons that include our ability to have this conversation. Sometimes I think that humans are really the senses of the species, and that some are screaming "watch out!" and some are screaming "look here!". What the internet has done is allow for the wiring of the "Superhero" nervous system in a new and potent way, and the internet is why I believe that in the battle for control over who owns the truth, the liars are going to lose, and have, in a sense, already lost. Liars require dark places to hide their crimes. Heroes thrive in the light. From my new novel...

"The sun is up you bloody pricks,
"Now you'll see some hero tricks."

Am I close?

But Twokay, my dear fellow, aren't you going to tell us?

I've heard unofficially through the grapevine what the answer may be, but this is your thread! It's up to you to tell us.

Also who's the winner?

And where did the answer come from? Is it your choice (and a clever one it is too) or is it the result of a panel of experts coming together at the Canadian taxpayers' expense on some tropical island to discuss the issue for a week or more?

Or is the "real" answer so rude that you've suddenly realised that the JCF Foum Moderators may have to step in? Perhaps the answer has already been transferred to Martin's infamous Library of Locked Posts? I think we should be told! :smile:

Well actually I claimed the winning prize
as I forgot to exclude myself from the
test. A slight oversight hee hee. Like
taking baby from a candy. hee hee.
ooh well there was this breach of security
some owls got into think tank and well
all heaven broke lose. You do understand
don't you and as well I didn't really wish to burden anyone with the tax problems associated with prize monies you know.
As for the answer. It was the result of many years of interspecieal consultations with my parakeets and assorted stray animals. I guess Jackson influences must have affected me. At any rate the answer is known but can't be devulged to the genereal public due to homeworld security considerations. I do hope you understand. Perhaps you could pry it lose with some well....I do like homemade port
and slight weakness for the stuff actually...well whatever. It was fun all round though and you certainly are good suckers opps I mean sports
whew....
