But if we do, yeah, revise it to account for both parties.
Goddamnit, I thought we'd settled this as the final version! But yeah, the wildly varying laws do make it difficult ...

Hyping things up is never good.
I guess one of those original band names was very appropriate!

I am just afraid of being in for another let down like Bomb. I like a few songs on there quite a lot but overall, it's definitely not one of my favourites.

Yeah, I'd have brought it up earlier if I'd been paying more attention.
Perhaps the state I'm in right now isn't the best of which to be asking serious questions...

But yes, the laws do make it quite difficult.

I want an album with staying power. One that will grow on me, like UF, rather than one like Bomb that seemed great initially and then TOTALLY dropped off.

Oh, and damn, I'm actually 41% on the new test, not 39%. But I will drop to 39% soon.

Maybe I'll retract declaring this the final copy then, and put #54 up for broader discussion.

I'm in the mood to find Adam and ask him questions about the album. He's the only bugger we can trust.

UF was fucking amazing. It has to be my favourite (aside of the obvious) musically, it just has to. That was the best fucking...*looks at CD case* $6 I ever spent on music!

I like Bomb initially but there were some songs on it I just couldn't stand. Namely Crumbs and A Man And A Woman. Those songs are like nails on a freakin' chalkboard to me. Skip, skip, skip! Thank you very much.
Though One Step Closer is my favourite, period.

Maybe we could drop it in favour of another question? Since the varying laws are different, there's probably not much we can do to make it universal.

Maybe we could choose a specific jurisdiction (preferably something Superthready) and ask "have you participated in sexual acts that constitute statutory rape in Wherever?"

Ah, I didn't think of that.
We could do that. But which one?

He'll probably respond with "I don't know anything about the new album, I just recorded some bass and went home to my spoons!"

I was thinking of Victoria, since a lot of us live here, but I'm having trouble finding anything clear.

Ah, right. The Aussies and Kiwis outnumber the Americans, right? Plus here, it's different in certain states as well.
