Re: What Am I - What Are You?

> Why do I also get this kindergarten feeling around here

Ah ! The Leela-Feeling...
My dear Gen6, in this great Kindergarten,

Re: I'm afraid

There is not much choice, is there ? Otherwise your brother wouldnt be a alcoholic. And the fear that is there, you didnt choose for that either.

No memory, no experience.
