Re: Nothing In Particular

So, as you're such an exemplar of a carbon sink, we need to prevent you being exposed to the atmosphere least you release too much ozone-depleting gas (probably too late for that!) and precipitate a global warming catastrophy...

I've had several calls of that type. :shock:
