Right, now I'm starting to look really stupid. It seems I am unable to copy and paste a URL successfully. This time for sure, I think... hp?gid=18382283750

when this URL is pasted here, a gap appears between the "p" and "h" after the comment has been submitted. This is causing the problems. Close the gap when you paste it and it works. I don't know why this is happening, since it does not paste with a gap. Bah!

Richard not only has past lives himself, he has also helped me to explore some of my own.

Why are you seeming to support this nonsense? Or have they paid you off?
