    Oh the irony.



    That's the reason why things are how they are. Tow the line, or else. Freedom has been strangulated because peoples freedom of expression has been stifled by #wits.

    LOL, it now weighs 4.540. 600 odd grams loss in 24hours. The pith has collapsed.

    Ian

    The main reason I will leave them as logs, for the moment at least, is because of the strange pith. I would describe the pith as being gelatinous at the time. Things have changed somewhat in...
