Eli offers us a new wheelchair but I think its a man slumped to the ground after smashing his head against the wall, leaving a trail of blood dribbling down.

    I see this is a site for kidz.

    [Your incisive contributions certainly show up the rest of us -W]

    Actually, this site is very juvenile. Perfect for kids.

    What the hell, links am links. Tanks

    Rabett tanks Stoat, yep, kidz-friendly here.

    NZ Willy, I don’t think there is an doubt going by your contribution, but could you please clarify whether the second part of your name is a descriptor or not?

    Yes, the stoat wins by being silly. Way of the world. Clowns prosper, the serious get eaten.

    @#5 Anthropocene…

    The Internal Commission on Stratigraphy at Neven’s Blog is currently working on this. “Nocene” is proposed as following Anthropocene and the period embracing both is proposed “Dumbassic”.
