Wow, you get four spouses.

Heh... You're going to be a tetragamist* with three husbands and a wife, with at least one of your husbands being polyamorously** involved with a polyamorous** woman. My, what a complex web (and family tree) we could weave.

*Quadrigamist? Would someone who has a more linguistic educational background than mine tell me what word I should be using?

**Am I allowed to use "biamorous" instead? As far as I can tell, it's not an official word. I'm working on a definition for it where it means essentially the same thing as "polyamorous" but with exactly two partners. Polyamory sets no upper limit on partner-count, but I suspect that neither Ri nor I have the time and energy for relationships with more than two partners each.

You could use "oligoamist", which would mean a few (non-specific number) partners, but with a certain upper limit. It suits itself to the more specific "tetragamist", which I would much prefer using over "quadrigamist" which just sounds silly.

Just to keep things slightly more complicated than they probably need to be, there's actually a difference between <number prefix>gamy and <number prefix>amory. Hard to explain what it is, but I think the polygamists "marry" multiple partners while the polyamorists just have multiple boyfriend/girlfriend-style relationships and possibly one marriage-partner.

"Trigamy

In 17th to 19th century England, Trigamy referred to someone who had three spouses at the same time.

The term is typically used for comic reference as is alluded to in the Edward Lear poem:

There was an old fellow of Lyme
Who lived with three wives at one time.
When asked, 'Why the third?'
He replied, 'One’s absurd,
And bigamy, sir, is a crime.'

From the modern legal perspective, this is just seen as two counts of bigamy."

... I dunno, there are three distinct pairs of wives! Unless bigamy is simply marrying when already having a wife...

If you want, we also have lithium and strontium.

Strontium always makes me giggle though. I'm half Dutch.

EDIT: *Gasp*! I tell a lie, strontium is Sr, not St.

Yeah a chemsitry concept album could be pretty cool. I would buy it. Have you heard Chemical Calisthenics by Blackalicious?

"Lead, gold, tin, iron, platinum, zinc, when I
rap you think
Iodine nitrate activate
Red geranium,
the only difference is I transmit sound
Balance was
unbalanced then you add a little talent and

Careful,
careful with those ingredients
They could explode and blow
up if you drop then
And may hit the ground"

And so on.

I think that I would seriously die if I lost my music collection. I've worked hard to get all 8k+ songs totally organised and nicely tagged. And by "hard" I mean "using nice programs that I managed to track down that automate the majority of the work for me".

Most of my music is in a different folder. So i guess losing all my playcounts is a good thing, really.

Edit: 'cos i can put it into the same folder (Noize. heheh.), and not lose any more of my playcounts 8)

You are in the same boat as I am, dear. Not only would it be hard tracking down a majority of it (or even remembering what I had), some of the stuff I don't even know the real name or artist. I have one song titled 'Gay Erotic Electroboi' and the artist name is 'Jacob.' Jacob happens to be the boy who sent me the song, without a proper title or artist. That went on for too long, I apologize. The point is, it would be hard.


Also, I am a trigamist? Who moves around a lot? Something about elements and rap. Why don't we all just get a big house somewhere in the middle? (It could work!)
