I'm sorry to say this Taz but I find your post offensive and very inaccurate.

If you ever visited Rome you would find that there aren't any other diseases!!!

That's some funny stuff. And the Japs...... oohh the Japs... they're almost as funny as the northeners here!!!!!!

...work's shut, neighbours are out, i'm gonna make some racket...
