and technically Quirmy's roundworld 'template' did not write backwards - he did mirror writing which is even more nerdy - and he didn't use a mirror to do it either! It's really hard! :roll:

Actually there's a lot of evidence on da Vinci having a serious personality dysfunction and possibly he had a form of autism - despite having rich powerful patrons he was often destitute because of the rows he had with them. But man was he ever a genius! I'd love to have known him :o

Talking of writing backwards. My 'puter goes potty sometimes.

I'll go to post a message and instead of typing "hello how are you?" the cursor shoots to behind the first character and I end up with "?uoy era woh olleH".

Bizzare. :shock:
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

So did I! I actually find it quite easy to do. I also learnt to read a book by holding it upside down when I was at primary school.
This comes in handy if I wanted to read something that was on my manager's desk. I could read it whilst I was talking to him!
Going to my school was an education in itself. Which is not to be confused with actually getting an education (Schultz)

:lol: I learned how to read upside down when I worked in a courtroom and I used to sit facing the lawyers - some of the notes I saw... :twisted:

Best one was a pair of opposing barristers who happened to be married.

Him to her - If you don't shut up soon you can forget going to the Savoy Grill tonight

Her to him - Loser - you'll be lucky to afford the chippie on what this creep'll be able to pay you once I've finished with him

Yes it was a divorce settlement... :wink:

My special need is dark chocolate with red wine.

My pooter once, decided to type it's own messages, it was really weird. :shock: :? I'd start typing & it would add words I hadn't typed. :shock: Luckily it didn't do that for long. I was getting really freaked out by it. :shock:
Best wishes,

What was it trying to tell you? :shock:
What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!

I have no idea, Dotsie, it was really scary. :shock: The words that typed themselves were random. It has never done it again.
Best wishes,

Or perhaps it was the ants - like the ones that Hex has.... :D

Reported in today's paper.

Spotted on a Sunday lunch menu: 'Pan-fried breast of Woodgate farm children, stuffed with ham and cheese.'

... maybe it's a children's size portion??
