do you know that since just before midnight tonight while posting to the quizzes and games threads............I have had the dreaded Genes error page no less than eight times!

and IF the error has been logged, why do they need me to tell them exactly what I was trying to do, while it was happening?

and while sneezing most adults sneeze through the mouth, while a baby sneezes through the nose(it hasnt learned to breathe through the mouth yet.........)

You can't sneeze without closing your eyes.
