It was 40 years ago today that the first long-distance computer communications was set up on Arpanet, which later gave rise to what became known as The Internet.

@ davideo

Being a Scorp myself, I guess the porn side of the star sign does have it's tantalising clutches, but with regard to Taureans resembling the bull, it'd be a bit scary following up with that second close coupled & regulary used four letter word ending with a "t". :mrgreen: :run:

Happy Birthday Phil :beer: :beer: :thumbsup2:

Scorpio -
They can be strong willed and determined, almost to the point of being stubborn. This makes them great competitors, even if they are able to hide this desire to win from you. This also makes Scorpios very dominant, controlling and passionate. When they do not have a positive outlet for self-expression, they often turn inwards and become destructive.

When wronged, they do not easily forgive. It is almost as if the Scorpio sign invented the word "revenge." However, they just as easily never forget an act of kindness and are always ready to repay it. Scorpios are very loyal friends, but can be possessive. Scorpios are also conservative when it comes to money but when they do spend it; they know the right investments to make.
Leo (me) -
Because they like to dominant, you can find Leos at the center of any party, taking command. Self-confident, Leos are like Aries in that they are born leaders. Leos are truly in their element when allowed to take command of a situation. Like the mighty lion, Leos make good leaders because they like to think big and act big - often in terms that would scare others. But the Leos rarely have problems with their daring moves because of their courageous attitudes.

Leos are idealistic in their views as they are highly intelligent and are often philosophical. They often cling to what more liberal thinkers might see as outdated thinking because of their devotion. Leos also have no problem in cutting to the chase of the matter - a great quality for a leader, but rarely found. They strive under dire conditions, determined to make the best of things. Because of all of these traits, their subordinates are usually quite loyal. Their ability to give love is as great as their need to be the center of attention.

I suppose that's why me and my mum never saw eye to eye :mrgreen:

LOL my birthday is Nov 21'st thus making me a Scorpio too. well unless your the pendantic (on the cusp) type of person.

I have to admit, I do see traits of the Scorpio in my ways of doing and thinking, those that know me would be able to comment on that lol, when I asked the missues she chuckled and then claims I am the architype of the scorpio, but thats them libra's for you (damn peace keepers) LOL

@r0jaws

Hope you are having a very Happy Birthday my friend!
