... you know, I'm a pretty nice fellow... quiet, shy, retiring... one might even say ˜meek'.... and as I am so sensitive, I am often drawn to sad stories such as this...

... but I do also have a curious side - even in the face of such sad circumstances... so as I was reading the article on the suddenly brain-damaged and sex-crazed young British trooper, I could not help but read these lines and sit in amazement.....

We were told that the brain's frontal lobes play a key role in personality. This was discovered about 160 years ago when a railway worker, Phineas Gage, accidentally drove a metre-long metal pole through the frontal lobes of his brain.

Gage astonished doctors by making a full physical recovery. But his character had changed: he became quick-tempered and foul-natured ” very different from his former self.

... "foul-natured"??... well, you don't say.... having accidentally driven a metre-long metal pole through one's frontal lobe might do that... no?.... and that 600 pound sterling internet porn bill?.... Alexander, I definitely feel your pain...... I hope those beta-blockers work..... God knows, suing the MOD surely won't....

So from what I'm reading he has the sex drive of a 15 year old?

I've got the cure; find him a 40 year old woman whose husband recently left her for a 20 year old.

And I ain't even a doctor, maybe I should change professions.

Hey, some of the goons I work with need a personality transplant, does this mean that I can jab then in the head with a piece of all-thread and have pleasant coworkers?

Surprised you didn't write about the marine's new cookbook. I've got a post on it at my site.

Hmm...I would love to ice-pik lobotamize quite a few people I know...I too wonder if you lobotomize a nasty person, do they become pleasant?

Hmmm, according to that article staring at breasts is a bad thing. Must be an British hangup.

Phin- What is your implication about we 40 year old women? Heh heh heh!

Bullshitted by Bou on July 6, 2006 12:01 PM

Bou, I think his implication is that y'all are hotties, and experienced hotties at that. Take pride sister...

Now, if I could get him so say somethin' nice 'bout 40 year ol' men... He'd be queer... So I ain't goin' there.

Ramming a meter long hunk of steel through any part of my fraggin' body would make me pretty foul tempered...
