    Man's Walk: Porteños and Panthers

    love you peaches. What was this thread about again? Here's a thought, I'm pretty much in the camp of what I like to call "pre-modernism" which means I have very little patience for reading pages and pages of people wittering on about irrelevant nonsense. Sadly to mangle the famous pig quote...

    "Dear Simone"

    well for a start the whole "europeans trapped south of the equator" thing. Quite simply, a lot of them are. anyway I just don't think it's right for people to start slagging people off on anonymous forums. Probably some one will pull out quote from me from ages ago when I've been very pissed...

    Media Luna (Half Moon)

    it's all arbitrary words. just bollocks. that's the problem we have on many of these threads. pedants getting their knickers in a twist over jargon. we might as well bring bck the fruit loop. i'm sure he'd have lot to say about syllabi.
