The Answers to Discussion Topics

Postby rdearman » Thu Jan 14, 2016 11:38 pm

I started this thread over in the old HTLAL because I just couldn't help myself when looking at the topic name and something funny (to me anyway) occured to me. So I have seen a few of these here also and thought I'd restart the thread. As always no offence is intended to the topic starter!
