I'm related to Genghis Khan. As are millions of others, but I take after him more than them. :snooty:

Mostly far-righters though.


I'm only conservative with a small c. :snooty:
And warrior with a small w.

ETA: that makes me a wc! :thud:


You must be related to Genghis's feminine side then. :gigglesnshit:


He didn't have a feminine side. Soft hands though.

What happened to Aziz's comment about the bloke being an 'ugly sod'?

Say what?

A tough choice, but would you rather have your eyes poked out, or be skinned alive?

Funnily enough, we had these sort of deep discussions at school. It almost always ended up 'would you rather be peeled alive slowly or have your eyes taken out at any speed with cocktail sticks?'

I was a fence sitter on that one.
