>> MIND BOGGLER !!
« on: 25/08/2004 10:39:25 »
This used to be a status symbol.It's not anymore.Forget this century and the previous (20th) century.Forget body parts.It is something of a personal nature that was justified in ancient civilisations.What is it?

To be honest (and please don't take offence Sizzla)...but I hope you give us the answer soon cos you posed this riddle weeks ago ( Aug 25) and I'm getting fed up waiting for the answer...of course I just speak for myself who is very impatient...not the rest of the lovely bunch of patient people here !!
