Or South American. Sadly, we are following in the footsteps of older
civilizations in forest destruction. BTW, why don't you also boycott UK
products? Now there's a challenge!

Wow! For someone who programs, I'm having trouble figuring out where you
get your logic. Irrelevant is like bad code that still does it's job.

total pain in the ass if one if the industrialized nations completely
stopped economically.
