Re: 1190: "Time"

Ready to see what I spent my morning doing? Here you go! [*snip*] Hope you enjoy!

Re: 1190: "Time"

Is wire one syllable ? Can be one or two; it depends on your accent. (Sometimes a triphthong) May I address, and possibly settle, this issue? It's been a pet peeve of mine ever since second grade (plus or minus, I don't recall exactly) when the teacher was introducing us to ...

Edit: Aagh, sorry. Rogue mouse caused double post. How do you delete a post?
Edit2: I see I should have deleted the second one, instead of trying to edit this one away. Double screw-up

Re: 1190: "Time"

I had an omen from the outside world:

Spoiler:
This is it.jpg
This is it.jpg (11.99 KiB) Viewed 12327 times


I think the sea level rise and the color fade will continue until the sea level reaches the top of the pix and at the same time becomes completely white.

The End is Nigh.

It's starting to look like a ship to me, with flags flying from the funnels and now the crow's nest, are they getting ready to sail off into the sunset?

Re: 1190: "Time"

Why is Queball such a slacker? Megan does about 95% of the work. Only 15% of statistical claims use a made up percentage figure. At least 50% of commenters referencing the first post quoted above believe that the percentage of made-up figures is potentially much higher. To set the record straight, ...

Re: 1190: "Time"

The word 'pope' is related is from the Greek 'papas' (originally meaning 'father'. See also 'papa'). So a female pope should be a mope. Or rather, a mome. I'm guessing the Greek for mother is something like "mammas" and not "mapas", so it'd be mome rather than mope, though you g...
