    That is because it looks like he is still on the steroids used to supercharge his immune system.

    OK while it lasts, not so good when he comes off them. And I think he is already past the 'best buy' date.

    Dead Man Walking until the end of the year!

    I don't Think aka 'The Turnip in Chief.'

    Thank you for those kind words.

    As an atheist and a scientist I know that many things affect your health and it is much of a lottery as to how it all turns out. Your 'wishes' have nothing whatsoever to do with it.

    At least I am not a two faced lier, such as yourself: what you see is what you get. And if you don't like it tough.

    I don't Think aka 'The Turnip in Chief.'

    Although I am an atheist I was once a confirmed Christian and I do live my life by some of the tenets of Christ and some of those in the Old Testament. Especially an eye for an eye if somebody upsets my wife or causes her actual bodily harm. This happened once but the moron who did it will not be doing it to anyone ever again.

    I did not give Chavez cancer. If you believe him the USA did.

    However, I despise the crook and suspect that my prediction will come true given the messages about his health coming from various quarters.

    I understand why MrLayback has asked for your account to be terminated but I am totally disinterested in what the result is.

    If I can't deal with some deluded pillock who thinks a 1956ish LR26 French originated watch, the mechansim of which was then hacked by the Ruskies to provide a stop / synchronising facility and then called a Navigator's watch is still working perfectly without ANY servicing and ESPECIALLY oiling of the 15 jewels then it's time to call it a day. At least it is dead right twice a day.

    Do I think that 'I don't Think' can think through the pun in the last paragraph? I don't think so.
