Re: What is this ?

"Not necessarily something found on a boat"? Is there an alternate use for that thing that we should know about?

You, sir, are always willing to look at the bigger picture.

As for popularity, let's forbid it until boys (and girls) are 18. Then we'll see how popular it is.

What I don't get is how a god that hates bacon can love foreskins. Talk about putting in a reef too early.

But waiting until someone could make own decision (especially the not to part) would largely remove the purpose of doing so.

Has always seemed odd to me that sexually molesting a child is (legally) considered worse than sexually mutilating a child . I would have thought at least on a par. at least.

I suspect a Snip coming shortly from the Mods............
