RE: Remove from list

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
FOR ONCE I'M SO HAPPY THAT I HAD A KIDNEY STONE FOLLOWED BY THE STOMACH FLU
AND MISSED THIS THEAD. IF YOU GUYS HAVEN'T LEARNED IN THE LAST NEARLY 13
YEARS YOUR BOUND TO REMAIN A LOST CAUSE. I THINK IT WAS BILL ALLEN WHO
SHOWED ME THE LIGHT - IN THE CASE OF DISCUSSIONS ABOUT RELIGION, LIFESTYLES,
POLITICS AND THE ECONOMY I WOULD RATHER WRAP A HEATING PAD AROUND MYSELF AND
SUFFER THE PAIN UNTIL THE KIDNEY STONE PASSES THAN GET INVOLVED IN THIS NO
WIN DISCUSSION! :0)

Sorry, but I thought shouting might help get it through some of the thicker
skulls out there.

Regards,

Dennis
