    Lemmy and Richards are not human.

    He died a week later.
    Sheesh, quitting smoking cold turkey is hard enough on your body but cutting off long term heavy drinking at the same time is real harsh...that's something that has to be done at a detox center under carefully controlled conditions.

    I disagree, he probably had the knack all along. Talent is something that takes refining.

    Good article.

    It also probably took the right environment and the right people above him to understand what he could and could not do and were willing to take arrows in order to allow him to do it.

    Don't be a sleeper, don't be a sleeper, don't be a sleeper...

    As I said in the Toulouse killings thread, the solution will have to come from muslims.

    And a convert ? Who would have thought ? I'm so used to hear that converts tend to be the most radicals !!

    Edit : Ah, I see, converted because of wife. yeah, I guess he did it to please her and avoid mess, as a female woman can only marry a muslim. Probably doesn't give a rat's ass about religion...

    @Lemmy and metabolism : hey ! I've heard that story the other day ! Even said his blood is so poisonous, he'd kill anyone getting a transfusion from him ! Dude's become a mutant !!

    I wouldn't trust him. He's a convert and religious. Before you know it, Muhammad ([*******#000000][FONT=sans-serif] [/FONT][/COLOR][*******#000000][FONT=sans-serif]عليه السلام) will talk to him in his sleep and he's drone the **** out of Congress. There, I said it.

    A chain smoking, narcissistic, foul mouthed spy ? This would make a great movie.
