    Have you spoken to Peter Jackson about the Tintin movie?
    Mind you, I always did think Tintin was attractive for a cartoon.

    You cut the top of your hair off in that photo, and it still looks like Tintin. We never said it was a bad thing, though.

    Hello everybody! :grouphugs:

    How are we all in here?


    I would just like to bring to everyone's attention in here Avaaz's (an international non-governmental organisation) latest human rights campaign of opposing a bill that the Uguandan Parliament is trying to pass through that would punish gay Uguandans with prison and even death for "serial offenders" : http://www.avaaz.org/en/uganda_right...7819326&v=5389

    Below I have taken care to copy and paste the email that can be forwarded on to other people in the same format to which it was presented to me:

    (Original post by Avaaz)
    Uganda’s parliament is preparing to pass a brutal new law that would punish gay people with prison -- even death.

    Initial international criticism drove the President to call for a review. But after a well-funded and vicious lobbying effort by extremists, the bill looks set to be passed -- threatening widespread persecution and bloodshed.

    Opposition to the bill is rising, including from the Anglican church. Ugandan gay rights advocate Frank Mugisha writes, This law will put us in serious danger. Please, sign the petition and tell others to stand with us – if there’s a huge global response, our government will see that Uganda will be internationally isolated by the proposed law, and strike it down.

    With the decision expected in days, only an irresistible wave of worldwide pressure will be enough to save Frank's life and many others. Let’s build a huge petition to stop the gay death law -- click here to take action, then forward this email:

    http://www.avaaz.org/en/uganda_rights_2/?vl

    The petition will be delivered to President Museveni and the parliament at the end of this week by top Ugandan civil society and Church leaders. Pro-death penalty advocates have also planned a march this week, so our voices need to be louder than theirs!

    The bill proposes life imprisonment for anyone convicted of having same-sex relations and imposes the death penalty for “serial offenders”. NGOs working to prevent the spread of HIV could be imprisoned for up to 7 years for “promoting homosexuality”. Even members of the public face up to three years in jail if they fail to report homosexual activity to the police within 24 hours!

    The bill’s advocates claim that it defends national culture, but its strongest critics come from within Uganda. The Reverend Canon Gideon Byamugisha is one of many who’s written to us – he says,

    It is violating our cultures, traditions and religious values that teach against intolerance, injustice, hatred and violence. We need laws to protect people -- not ones that will humiliate, ridicule, persecute and kill them en masse.

    By rejecting this dangerous bill and supporting the breadth of opposition to it, we can help set a crucial precedent. Let’s build massive support for Uganda’s human rights defenders, and save lives by stopping this bill -- sign now here, then tell friends and family:

    http://www.avaaz.org/en/uganda_rights_2/?vl

    With hope and determination,

    Alice, Ricken, Ben, Paul, Benjamin, Pascal, Raluca, Graziela and the whole Avaaz team

    Somewhere in America, I imagine. The things I'd do to him... I mean, in practical terms it'd be difficult to have sex with him because he's so, erm, large. But damn it, I never turn down a challenge. :p:
    He's not that big.

    I've had bigger tbh.

    Even so, biology is wonderfully complex and beautiful, more so than chemistry could ever hope to be :p:

    Are you studying for a Masters then? I was thinking about doing a Masters after I graduate but I think any more academic study might kill me :moon:
