 I completely agree. My protest is against the French decision to resume
nuclear testing in our backyard, it should not be taken as an open affront
to all French people. Unfortunately, the only course of protest available
to individuals in Australia (or elsewhere for that matter) is to boycott
French products.

For all those about to jam my Email address with "you didn't talk about
dinosaurs", I'll add on this comment for a thread;

What is the current accepted wisdom on what pachycephalosaurs used their
heads for? I think that the case for male to male combat holds as much
water as the Rainbow Warrior (No 1, not No 2). The head is better designed
for delivering a Liverpool Kiss to an impending predator. What is hte
general feeling out there?

Cheers, Paul
