So much more appropriate. What are we thanking for sanity/sane people, though?

Thank hundreds of millions of years of evolution for the development of an enlarged brain and consciousness? Doesn't really roll off the tongue.

I forget who it was (may have been Pratchett) who was talking about atheists hitting thumbs with hammers and shouting 'Oh! Random fluctuations in the space-time continuum!' :haha:

Edit- Tig kindly pointed out the correct bit, changed accordingly.
That seems to point up a significant difference between Europeans and Americans. A European says: "I can't understand this, what's wrong with me?" An American says: "I can't understand this, what's wrong with him? - Sir Terry Pratchett

The great thing about Beaker is his ability to provoke while still being decorous, or at least within acceptable rules of conduct - Qwertyuiopasd

Ta, amended post. I was nearly right :whistle:
