Can anyone explain it?
It's because you're full of sh*t and you smell like a fart.:-)

You're always playing catchup with your rebuttals, pouky. When will you finally learn you're simply a parrot, or more accurately - a pavlovian dog, responding to a whistle and crapping (correction: posting) on command?

Obso, you don't know when I'm pulling your … I'll admit I have laughed at some of the things you've posted on here, but usually it's because of your stupidity as opposed to your attempts at humour.:-)

I don't post on command, I'm not like Stefanya who replies to every single message, so that you end up with three pages of her bs. The parrot thing is getting tired now, you yourself are a parrot for stealing the name of one of the more intelligent posters on here.:-)

OK, Pouky Poo...I've had it with you and will respond by a little horn blow, totally out of character for me I might add:

My IQ's been measured at 150. Can that foaming-at-the-mouth, vapid Polish Observer top that? I mean really, he can barely manage to spell 'kielbasa'.

150? Don't you think it's time that you start showing some of your vast intelligence on here? You've hardly shown any yet.:-)

It wasn't for you, it was so that I wouldn't get the standard "Learn English" reply from Pesky, it still won't stop the idiot from doing it though.

A potentially game-changing discovery...
Okay, now we will invade you for your rubber.
Not actually a 'discovery'. More like a refinement of an old idea:

Taraxacum kok-saghyz (TKS) was cultivated on a large scale in the Soviet Union between 1931 and 1950, as well as in the United States, the UK, Germany, Sweden and Spain during World War II as an emergency source of rubber when supplies of rubber from Hevea brasiliensis in Southeast Asia were threatened. During this time period, the highest yields achieved by the U.S. were 110 kg of rubber per hectare, while the USSR achieved yields of 200 kg of rubber per hectare. With the conclusion of World War II and the return of affordable Hevea brasiliensis rubber, the majority of T. kok-saghyz programs were discontinued.

It's true. In the spirit of cooperation and mutual understanding, I took my IQ and added yours to the end. I hope now that you find it in your heart to reciprocate with an equally friendly gesture. ;-)

There is only one true fascist on here, Dr Phil, stop being so paranoid, not agreeing that Russia is the greatest nation on the planet and the best at everything, does not make one a fascist.
