Re: 1697: "Intervocalic Fortition"

Wikipedia indicates Meh's first popular appearance was in 1992. I seem to recall in the book Ender's Game (1985) there was an expression "Neh" which the students of Battle School used to bandy about, the reply to which was "Eh" which we all know is of Canadian origin.

Re: 1535: "Words for Pets"

I never got a chance to call my long-lived cat and dog "cat" and "dog", respectively, but after that I got some parakeets and we never named any of them, just called them "bird". (If we had two or more at a time, they were "green bird", "yellow bird"...

Re: 1522: "Astronomy"

By the same stretch of logic, Dr. Richards first saw Galactus through a telescope because you can't spell Astronomy without Nom.

The Capsule Corp. frowns on this game/anime's shenanigans. Their lawyers will descend upon this cockfighting like a Bulma in a china shop.

Owen Reece didn't wear a beret; he wore lightning bolt scars on his face (and had many more than Harry Potter, and he had a wand first!)
