Yay for Shoobie! Another person with an ounce of intelligence has spoken his peace. Sometimes stupid ideas just can’t go without being dealt with. This is the first time I’ve read this thread and I feel happy, knowing that someone else can actually comprehend these weak excuses for a post. As for trying to get beyond someone’s comprehension on this site.. you will be flamed for stupidity. So while you “origanise” you thoughts while searching through your dictionary on cd-rom, remember, there’s always someone better than you.

how ironic that in the same sentence you mention dictionary you spell organise wrong.
thankfully everyone else has a sense of humour and can take my comments in the manner with which they were meant.

hey shadow.. if you take a look at my post, you'll see that I quoted you spelling organize wrong.. you dolt, where do you get off cutting half my post off and trying to prove me wrong?! You've made yourself look even more like an idiot. *bows* thanks for helping us all make you feel more stupid! And I too have a sense of humor, but I leave that for when people realize they've been made a fool of, and I just help them to feel worse, eat it.
