I'm not pro-circumcision (it is certainly not the norm here) but at least it leaves men capable of enjoying intercourse.

How bout Chinese Whispers?

You know what's amazing about the Faroe Islands is their transportation network. It's a group of mountainous islands. And the road system makes extensive use of tunnels. The tunnels go through the mountains of the islands to get to the other side, and they even go underwater to link one island to another. It might not seem like that big of a deal, because hey, everybody has tunnels, except almost nobody lives there. They spend so much effort and money to connect one almost uninhabited island to another.

It's not like they have a whole lot of other, more exciting shit to do, might as well dig some tunnels.

You do a Google image search for these tunnels, and only one image that I saw had more than one car in the picture. And that one had only two cars.

Those are the mountain roads you want to ride your bike on.

[huge downer]IMHO killing the animals even over a couple of days is better than the practice of torturing them for years collecting bear bile.[do NOT click link unless you are prepared to be very depressed.]

I seem to remember your therapist telling you to avoid certain threads on the cellar. Did you get the OK to look at bear bile websites? Cause I'm against that.
