Moving a lot of hot air perhaps? Perhaps 'cause of the mussels?

Attacking 'imaginary' enemies or threats is plain daft, isn't it?

Re: Disgusted by a political poster?

The poster is just so wrong on every level.
Disgust doesn't even start to describe it.

I agree! That windmill is totally out of date! Besides, I much prefer watermills for my flour.

Re: Disgusted by a political poster?

Well, I'm certainly disgusted. So disgusted that I'm going to vote against it at the next... oh, hang on...

What do you mean I can't vote?

Re: Disgusted by a political poster?

I think that the blades span measured from the pivot is much too large. It looks like when the mill rotates they might either crush those two fellows or blow them away. Otherwise the blue sky in the background composes x sehr gut with the rest.

I can!

However, I can't vote for the UDC as all MY votes go to the LEGA!
