    lol yes! Thanks for that, Andy.

    You've got me thinking now too. (Yeh, I know - dangerous!). Why do we do that? Why do we all copy one another without finding out 'why' for ourselves? Why do we take people and situations at face value and fail to dig a little deeper? I think that might be my New Years resolution - to think for myself more and not take what I am told as the gospel truth until I have checked things out for myself.

    Sorry I'm derailing your fun thread now aren't I? Shall I go to the naughty corner again?

    And another thing....you have taught me that monkeys don't like being showered with cold water. Nor do I, and I don't like being beaten up either. I wonder if anyone does? Just for wanting to eat a banana? Oh, well, you've put me off bananas even more now, so I suppose that's a good thing, right?

    lol, sorry, you know this always happens when I start thinking, I'll try to keep my brain quiet for the rest of the day. I promise (well at least until 5 pm, will that do?)

    Have a nice day all of you, and don't go bananas like me! Smile Rolling Eyes clown elephant flower

    I posted a long thing about starvation, fructose, leptin and the genetic adaptation for alcohol tolerance and then my computer decided that I was being a pompous git and shut itself down rather than letting me post.

    Thinking about it it was probably right.

    But hello anyway!

    I always wondered why I sprayed cold water on monkeys and now I know!
