  • Islander,

    Genghis Khan was emphatically practising genocide (you ever heard about skull towers?) and he was pretty good at removing familial opposition too…another male pyschopath, to the same degree as Alexander of Macedonia-

    but I like Perkin’s local reference!
    In other news,
    you'll've all caught up on the fact that "Sensible Sentencing Trust' director Garth McVicar didnt actually *write* the book that has him emblazoned as author on the front cover?
    Thanks again Penguin-

    I was talking to someone just the other day about this but couldn't remember where I read it, can you remind me? I have only seen the reference in one book, was it called something like “Caravansari”? The Caravansari of tongues was the place, so called because they stacked up the people with their feet tied to a post and plastered them in with mud, people would poke their tongues though the mud to be able to breath. And they say Gadaffi is bad. :-O
