Exactly. The thought.
It seems to haunt you.
Anonymous thoughts certainly do get around the world.
It must be frustrating not to be able to control these thoughts.

GoGoBar really is a sicko, he cant even hide it.
He just keeps going on with a lot of anti-gun horse crap to cover up the fact that hes a child molester.

If you rounded up every white guy in Thailand 95% of them would be pedophiles.

* australia was originally populated by peoples loyal to Britain and dumb people who just got lost.

* australia is still technically owned by England and has to dance for them when commanded.

* It is rumored australia has its own military. Their most powerful weapon is the telephone with which they can call America and say, "Help! We're being invaded, eh!"

* australia has a picture of a queen on their money to show their contempt for democracy.

* australia holds up a sham democracy to try and be accepted by the civilized world, but in fact all real decisions are made by queen of britian

* The central area of australia is technically God-forsaken. If anyone there has a prayer, he or she first has to mail it to an American priest for God to hear it.

* australia has gone its entire history without doing anything

* australians don't have any nuclear missiles because they decided they are not mature enough for them. Maybe when they’re older.

*australia have national gun registration. While solving no crime, the excessive amount of money the initiative has taken has foiled australias evil schemes to make mutant monkeys.

* If ever attacked by a australian well i beat the crap out of him

* This list would be classified as a hate crime in australia

* Actually, most australians who read this list would just say, "Eh?"

Utterly MEANINGLESS drivel. It has NO bearing, depth, substance, or weight in the face of:

"The Right of the People to Keep and Bear Arms shall NOT be infringed".

I assume when you say "dispose" that you include the trashcan as well? For it would be utterly useless afterwards. I don't believe they make a disinfectant strong enough to ever be rid of the stench. ;)

You plagurised this list from the net and replaced the name Canada with Australia. Not very original at all, infact you left the last part in with "Eh" a typical Canadian expression, not Australian.
