OB - put the cursor (probably a looks like an "I") in fron of the the text you want to copy.
Hold down the left mouse button.
Move the cursor to after the last character that you want to copy.
Let go of the left mouse button.
Press right mouse button
Select option "copy"
Go to where you want to put the text.
Press right mouse button.
Select option "paste".

The text should now appear.
If you have a Mac the instructions are slightly different.
Go to a shop, buy a pc, use above instructions.

Once you have mastered all this, we will go on to using CTRL C and CTRL V!

now for the question:

Is it Olympic related?

Thanks Skiddy

I'll wait till we get a few more items on this page before I give it a go as th last list was on the previous page.

Meanwhile, back in the old corral, the answer to question 11..

The subject has nothing to do with the Olympics. I think big sweaty animals would play a big part in that.

0) Vegetable and Mineral.

1) Do most fforumites have one? No.

2) Will it fit inside a normal breadbox? I hope so.

3) Is it edible? Not for you and me or any other creature much.

4) Can you buy it at a corner shop? Not yet but it won't be normally found there.

5) Will it be useful? Hmm. It has a primary use but imaginative folk could find a lot more.

6) Out of 100 random adults in London, would you expect more that 4 people to own one? Perhaps for one week only but thereafter, no.

7) Will it be manufactured? yes.

8) Will I want one? Geg will want one

9) Is it a flag? Snotty flag. Sorry. It's not a flag.

10) Does the item exist yet? No

11) Is it Olympic related? No

12) Is is Ffordian?

It has a physical form, but with very few exceptions peoples' perception of it and other similar entities is not of the physical form itself.
