    What seasoning do you like on your food?
    In the Bible it says "Salt is good, but if the salt has lost its saltiness, how will you make it salty again? Have salt in yourselves, and be at peace with one another.” - Mark 9:50

    dammnit! At least i can now watch one of the best movies of all time? Any other movie recommendations?
    Oooh. Hot fuzz and The worlds end are both quite good films although I warn you they get strange a little gory and very violent
    And one of my favourite films although completely unlike the others is Gnomeo and Juliet ...yes Gnomeo not Romeo. It is a great film.

    I think racism should be a word that should be used in serious circumstances only, not too be used excessively. Of course, some instances transcend others, but i believe humans have inherent differences, and some light humour should not be classified as racist. It could potentially be racist if its used to pick on, patronise, or mock a person who is a clear minority, i.e. that 'one foreigner in the year'. Of course, when this turns to hatred, swearing etc, the term racism is applicable

    Alongside death at a funeral, i'd say hot fuzz is one of the best british comedy films. The opening scene was one of the more funnier scenes. I'm looking forward to the worlds end, hopefully tomorrow, but gnomeo and juliet? Seriously? It's animated lol

    What made you use your victimhood as the basis of an AMA. Is that how you want people to view you?
    It's a hell of a lot of a better premise for an AMA than 'I'm bored'.

    Oh for sure, those always promise to be real thrill rides.

    Do you agree that the regulatory advantages that fossil fuel based vehicles are granted comprise the greatest impediment to electronic and green alternatives becoming mainstream?
