Stephen Hawking (?) is all I know and he's not a proper scientist, is he? I know about Leonardo since he was one of the Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles. Do you know the other three? (Tell your age and if you were a parent around that time). Hotboy

My colleagues in the Law Faculty have advised me to state that I have never been a parent at any time in my 39 years.

For 20 years my uncle blamed my aunt for their lack of children. Then a secretary accused him of fathering her child and sued him for maintenance, forcing him to produce a doctor's statement confirming his infertility.

Chemical Ali was Saddam's Minister Of Gassing. The others I think you know.
