Oh my God. So, there was this guy, named Robert Clive, he was head of the British armed forces in India in in the 1750s, and he became a hero for winning the battle of Plassey and taking over Bengal, which was one of India's richest provinces. He had a pet tortoise, who stayed in India after he left. The tortoise died in 2006, at the age of 255. Also, Robert Clive became an opium addict later in life. I just find this really funny (not the last bit, that is quite sad).
Remember the Sensuous Couple? We have found the Sensuous Man also, and another book called Turkish Delight...and the Quran was sandwiched in between them. XD My grandparents have a lot of explaining to do.
Thank you Josh for your perfect summing up....not one to hardcore flame but Vertigo's tactic appears to be "interesting quandry about a known controversial topic"...............oh hang on I have my own agenda to enforce have fun folks my ears are blocked to everyones well thought out comments and I will selectively reply to points in each of them ignoring the thrust of the argument
