    Some of your fellow citizens would disagree about the absence of state-run.

    http://uk.answers.yahoo.com/question/in ... 757AAHGfM3

    I liked this comment best of all.

    A great question. It is at the very least an 'unofficial' government controlled corporation - who rely on the 'goodwill' of the government to get this (highway robbery) licence fee money from the public.

    When the BBC 'don't toe the party line' they are threatened with the ending of the licence fee - and this has happened lots of times in the past - and after that threat the BBC soon fall into line.

    So the BBC is not supposed to be a state run corporation but we can 'all read' between the lines for the reasons you've stated......the public is not stupid - even if the government thinks we all are.!!!


    The license is the government paycheck.

    So you're still... and now to the tune of Big fucking Ben:

    Has not religion claimed a patent on creation for all of these millennia?

    That's some pretty funny stuff! I never looked at that thread, thinking it was some sports thing.

    Leto II is gone for good, except for OM. The "pearl" was just that; a miniscule portion of what Leto was, and not a compressed version of the whole. The pearl that the worms have do not make them Leto, or in any way similar to him.

    I guess I screwed up that title. I think I screwed up even further by posting a link to it in this thread which most people are now avoiding 8-)

    Oh well, some people around here still read everything.

    Don't you think she might have done that on purpose? :wink:

    I know., and it was a good joke ... it just reminded me that I had used her for Halloween.

    I really dug Billy Joel in the mid to late 70s ... that stuff is still very good; then, he got kinda weirded-out, but I've always wondered
    if that wasn't due to being married to Christy .... I got the feeling that girl would've tried anybody's patience ...

    and I'm back to liking Kojo again ... the back & forth bickering in this thread is the kinda of stuff I enjoy -
    purposeful rude debate with just enough personal attacks to be interesting without getting out of hand is good ...

    I particularly like that a lot of "dumbass" and "fuck yerself" was tossed about without anybody getting huffy and self-righteous
    and posting some "Screw you guys, I'm goin' home" tirade ... good deal, stick to yer guns, call the other guy an asshat once in a
    while, but don't loose sight of the facts of the matter - internet message board, not srs biznss, &etc.
    ................ I exist only to amuse myself ................

    I personally feel that this message board, Jacurutu, is full of hateful folks who don't know
    how to fully interact with people.
