    Bad question. Worse answer. I officially protest. Please see excellent (and correct) arguments being made by Everton and Jay. Failure to resolve this issue reasonably will result in my displeasure and be marked as a DOOM on BB's record.

    I await your appropriate response.

    That is all.

    you can have polls for the forum instead.

    waiting on answers from:

    Darth_Guy
    Everton
    OBIWAN-JR

    you have approximately 4 hours to get your questions in. ASO is excluded from E and JR's team so you must answer 5 questions each.

    It is now 5.25pm UK time. I would suggest that when it reaches 6.50pm UK time, Sonia, that you make an EXECUTIVE DECISION.

    The sort that Kurt Russell and Steven Seagal would admire.

    26? That can't be right epic. I took an anatomy class in college!
    There are 33 vertebrae in the back bone, 5 of them are fused to form the sacrum, and 2 more fused to form the coccyx. Try to correct me on that.

    Anyways, that wouldn't change the final result :(
