You do have to ask yourself however, why someone , anyone, needs to post such a question. Google would have given them the answer much quicker than I did and without the scorn.

GRP is hardly the world's most obscure acronym after all.

So smile as you walk down the street, laugh to yourself and smile at others, you'll get locked up for being a complete nutter but such is life.
The scorn you felt entitled to direct at a harmless question? Maybe this isn't the forum for you since you don't have sufficient outlets for your anti social tendencies. Looks like the island stolen from the Aboriginals is still home surly types.

We have that in the US too. It's called conservatism.

Re: What is a g.r.p. hull

Tiara, you do realize you're responding to a thread that is two years dormant. Perhaps you should direct your critical invectives at a current thread.

Re: What is a g.r.p. hull

Why would anybody raise THIS ghost thread from it's crypt? Heck, the OP may also be a ghost since he hasn't posted since 09-20-2011.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
