MORE INFO!!

How will it make them a nicotine addict and does it only work while they are sleeping?? :confused:

And how long is a jiffy?? :rolleyes:
Well that's the only time the eyelids are closed. I don't know how it works but I've done it many a time and if you light up near you're mate they are gagging for a fag!
A jiffy is one hundreth of a second.

the verb "to chunder" (throw up) comes from the tall ships that sailed the atlantic. the crow's nest, being the highest point of the ship, swayed the most and the person inside it frequently got sea-sick as a result. this caused him to throw up over the side, and if possible he would shout "watch under" before hand. this got abbreviated to chunder.

The word myriad comes from the greek "myriados" (transliterating) meaning "ten thousand"

On the Isle of Mann it is perfectly legal to kill an Irishman with a crossbow on a Sunday afternoon. Just in case anyone ever felt the need to kill someone who happened to be Irish and not go to prison.
This is in no way anti-irish. I love the irish. Really sexy voices. and guiness made there. God bless 'em

It is also legal to kill a Scotsman with a bow between the hours of midnight and 6AM(or something like that) within the walls of the city of York. Apparently.

Also in York, excluding Sundays, it is apparently legal to shoot a Scotsman with a bow and arrow.
I suppose that means I can't go to the University of York, then. :P
