I'd postulate that a transvestite could only be a VI after she acquires (ahem) the lesser brains men are known to think with. If the transvestite status is going the other way then I'd say CONGRATS SISTER you've now cured and freed yourself from the dread VI status :up :up
Henry VI wasn't a transvestite (as far as I know) but was prone to bouts of insanity. I'd never made the acronymic connection before. :tk

Ouch,..........come on LLL, you are our chief international corespondent for world affairs, now that Hafiz has left the ship, further more, as far as Europe is concerned, you do the late night review also, which was Jewel's job, people respect your comments.

Please don't go along the one line put downs, like others, because when the put down person leaves this site, what happens then?

What happens then is that we get posts for which we don't need an interpreter, so that a normal discussion and interesting thread can be followed effortlessly. :st

I know I am LLL, all you have to do is look at my posts they always hit the "Hot" on the forum board. Once there was a post on here asking what sort of animal would you be, my answer was a) A Hedgehog because like me they are prickly and b) A Fox because like me they are cunning. At the end of the day, I cogitate bisect all the reply posts and it gives me a good idea on what forum members are like. The prickly posts I find get the usual members going, and the cunning side is the fact I can then get a feeling has to what that member is all about. So that is what its all about, some members fall for it, other members cannot see the wood for the tree's

I will state, I have never posted anything on here I know to be untrue. I just like to put a post on that I know will be a bit prickly and by that it fires the cannon for the usual to reply. Gives me a great laugh. Laughing is what makes the world go around, I am sure I give plenty of laughs to forum members too... I also know a Forum member who like me post like me, and they too await answers..

Of course some of my posts are informative and of genuine concern, its up to the members to sort out what is what...

So when it comes to levels that is not quite the right word to use, I am sure you can COME UP with something else.... :lol: :lol:

True, but at least it gives them a little more time, to think about what they are writing, and to seriously think, whether a such comment is really part of THEIR intellectual make-up or style.

Should such a person join the sheep, I am not sure, but the silence of the lambs of the many that once wrote on this site, is very telling indeed.

I think it was Combined Cadet Force, but it is many years ago. Many, if not most, British schools had a unit in the '60s.

My son is in the air cadets.

One day when he was getting ready to go I said you off to cadets to see your mates.

"No" he corrected me.

"my squadron"
