Wait, I've been accused of that! You can't take the credit not when I've worked so hard for it.

*looks even more innocent*

What, you've lost your wallet? Oh no!

But here's a dollar, buy yourself a cup of coffee.

Cool find!

However, many of my posts of 2005 are no longer there-- they were deleted.

I started in mid-summer of '05, unregistered, over in the Evolution Discussion threads.

I've gone back to look-- an most of the '05 threads have been removed. Alas.

I posted as "Bob the Unbeliever" back then.

Yep-- I went and looked. All the '05 Evolution Debate threads have been pruned away. Pity.

This is the oldest post left, by me (I think):
