Yeah, I got a question. You write those yourself, or did an FF beat you to it?

Wrote them myself. What's a FF? I spend a lot of time arguing with Anti's, (including my wife), so I'm always looking for leverage. The 'amendments' are supposed to show that each could stand alone, using the same language as the 2nd and the second should stand alone with the wording of the 1st.

Look around and see if you can find the amendments as originally proposed. One more question: Do you come in the 40 watt range?

Ah, good point. Does that mean the states? or the people as a mass? [;D] I can't believe people are confused by the word 'people' [:(!]
