It's not exactly "pasting" Daisy.

You have to have an account with one of the free places that will store images for you, like Photobucket, or Image Cave.

Then you have to upload them to your account there.

Once you've done that, they usually supply you with an easy image code to copy/paste into a forum thread.

The male then does his part at that stage - it's how salmon and most other fish reproduce. No copulation is required - it all takes place outside of body cavities etc :wink:

If only human child bearing were this easy Jan. I think I could easily give up copulation if I had a choice between that and pushing out a lil unfertilised egg instead of a 21 hour labour and a 8lb baby. I'm coming back in my second life as a female seahorse.

Ohhhhhh... and talking about FISH. "Finding Nemo"!!!!! Here's an interesting fact you may not have known.

Of ALL the fish in the sea to do a movie about... they really didn't think it through when they cast "Finding Nemo". In the movie Nemo is a clownfish and when his mother dies, his father is left to raise him as a sole parent. Yes; clownfish DO tend to thier young but if the mother clownfish dies, the "father" changes sex and becomes female. (again the cries from my children" "Mum! Its JUST a movie!)

Why was I eating gunpowder you may well ask..........
Muskets and pistols were loaded using paper cartridges. Paper cartridges need to be torn so you can pour the main charge down the barrel and when on a range or 'in action' that is done with the teeth leading to tiny amounts being swallowed.


That would add a whole new dimension to those idiots who light up their farts wouldn't it?

It could be worse ... Bottoms are a sore point where chris is concerned ...
You could always ask chris if he has ever had his bottom shaved whilst he lay unconsious and oblivious ...

I have learnt WAY too much information in that one post..... I have learnt Chris has a hairy bottom :shock: .... I have learnt Chris has VERY close friends (who apparently carry a razor with them at all times).... I have learnt Chris has VERY evil friends :twisted: .... What I haven't learnt is just how much grog Chris had to drink to get THAT unconscious.

I'd love to enlighten you :lol: but I feel that honour should go to Chris (if he wants to talk about it :wink: )
