  • So, no adult answer then Johannes? Jura says there are alternate positions to the 2 you appear to subscribe too (a winner and the losers). I'd be interested in an adult answer if you have one.

  • You would never understand Johannes James W for you have always been a loser a joe lunchbox in the group hiding behind peer pressure as a replacement for a suitable thought out understanding which is way beyond your normal ability. JamesW I have told you often you are an empty nowhere man.

  • @James W; they are not "losers" son. But rather first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth, ninth, tenth etc. Everyone can FAIL just look at all the Labor failures, especially failed "hyperbol" Juliar Gillard and Kevin Krudd, thus we are the "losers" too. Failed James W's unsophisticated opinions indicate that he is a failed big Labor "loser".

  • The bullying green NSW Public Schooling system has long failed?? Somehow?? Unbelievably after 12 years schooling there are so many dumbed down school leavers with very poor literacy and numeracy issues with them for the rest of their life.
