    ^^ This back pic is like the Ace of spades, the ultimate trump card. When in doubt, throw it down, win the hand! [​IMG]

    It's part of the SF holy trinity. Moo-in-socks/FNB's technicolor dreamcoat/A&S disaster.

    That we are. You should see what we do with curtains!

    edit: I must admit I have almost no idea what's going on in this thread, nor did I read it. BUT, that usually happens with anything involving FNB.


    Welcome to this thread.

    AFAIK, A&S never cut for the Duke. Bad example.

    Sorry, my bad!

    Yes. But not if it's fizzy, and only with ice.

    West Coast Matt likes fizzy water. Not sure about ice, though.

    You forgot to wank RJman.
    Banned troll, I can do my own wanking thank you very much... although you seem to spend a lot of time on my dick.

    Speaking of this, in the 1890s, "gay" just meant "happy." It was a perfectly good word that the homos stole and I want it back.
    Don't forget the names they stole we need back, like Lance, Bruce or Julian.
    He's on our team, along with Perry Mason. Diduknowthat?
    Raymond Burr was ghey? The Case of the Bent Barrister?

    Actually, HK was granted to the Brits in perpetuity. Kowloon was on a 99 year lease which ended in 1997. The ChiComs made clear in the early '80s, that when the lease was up, they were not going to renew. Since HK cannot survive without Kowloon (no water on HK Island, for instance), the Brits had no choice but to make a deal.

    What this has to do with anything I have no idea.


    Allow me an attempt to make the connection with the help of Wikipedia's entry for the Treaty of Peking.

    On 18 October 1860, at the culmination of the Second Opium War, the British and French troops entered the Forbidden City in Beijing. Following the decisive defeat of the Chinese, Prince Gong was compelled to sign two treaties on behalf of the Qing government with Lord Elgin and Baron Gros, who represented Britain and France respectively.

    The area known as Kowloon was originally leased in March 1860. The Convention of Peking ended the lease, and ceded the land formally to the British on 24 October 1860.

    Article 6 of the Convention between China and the United Kingdom stipulated that China was to cede the part of Kowloon Peninsula south of present day Boundary Street, Kowloon, and Hong Kong (including Stonecutters Island) in perpetuity to Britain.

    Here's Prince Gong, photographed by Felice Beato, 2 November 1860, just days after he signed the treaty on the 24 Oct. 1860.

    Note the chest area of the Prince's robe. I believe you'll agree that, yes indeed, he was......... a drapist!

    Did your Dad have inside knowledge?
    Not very nice. I am sure he knew, but not like that.

    I know an NFL player who was waiting for his car in front of the Beverly Wilshire when Burr sidled up, complemented him on his physique and asked if he was interested in doing some yard work for him.
