Why don't American cows get that much mail?

Because American's think they are yummy.

My ex was from NH. Whereabouts do you live?

In the southern, flatland, might-as-well-be-Massachusetts, part.

When I was a kid, it was semi-rural, but it's a lot more crowded now. They just put in a Bloomingdale's/Saks Fifth Avenue outlet mall less than a mile from where I grew up!

I don't know the state well. She was from Salem

Did you know?

The town of Orleans, MA was shelled by enemy forces in three separate wars (War of 1812, WWI, WWII)


No, I didn't.

Shelled by who, DM Monkeyking?

The last three state speakers of the Massachusetts house have been federally indicted?

On what basis are we disqualifying "misconjugatedly"? And, technically, "dermatoglyphics" is a word, too.

Sebastian actually looks something like his original avatar pic.

No where does it say it has to be a word in the Roman alphabet; Cyrillic, with 33 letters, is a game changer! :P

Charles Flaherty. Another side fact: Massachusetts has had 21 continuous years of felons running the state house! Go Mass!

Nor does it specify language, for that matter; some of those fun German run-on words are bound to qualify. But I'm willing to read an implicit "in English" condition as part of the terms.


If we're going to talk about Felons, speaking as a Rhode Island resident, I feel Buddy Cianci deserves a mention.

Rhode Island is still behind Louisiana as the nation's most corrupt state, but on the one hand there's no shame in second, and on the other if we just really work on our game, we could take first this time! :P

Buddy Cianci is the shiznit!

You know, in a corrupt politician kind of way.

The USS MISSOURI and USS WISCONSIN were the last two serving battlships in the U.S. Navy. Each ship took part in Desert Storm in 1991.

Kirth, I thought you called yourself a scientist!

Linguistics is a science, and implicit assumptions make for bad science. :P

I mean, you found two in english, so the whole point's moot; nice job.

All I can think of for NH is John Sununu. But I don't really pay much attention to NH politics.

The thing is, knowing you, I'm pretty sure that typo was intended.

If you mean missing the "r" in "unfortunate," no, I just suck at typing. I use 4 fingers and still have a hard time of it, despite spending the better part of every day doing it.

I never learned to type officially, but I did get real proficient at it as a youngster by copying out passages from various D&D manuals.

Do you only HAVE four fingers? Like were the other ones blown off in 'Nam or something? I wouldn't want to poke fun...

I'm always amused by people who use computers often but never learn to type. Looking back I'm very grateful that I was forced to take a keyboarding class in high school. Being able to type quickly (~100 wpm 0% error rate taking dictation, but that was a few years ago when I was doing that every day) has made my life so much easier and lead to some great jobs.

The word 'testify' derived from a time when men were required to swear on their testicles.


The guys in the band Testament all have testicles.

I think.

Osirion

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Now DA, since I respect your opinion, I have to ask, when you read that "testify" thing, did it make you laugh your ass off?

Osirion

The word 'typewriter' is the longest word that can be typed using only the top row of a keyboard

Osirion

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

That you can spell the word 'level' the same backwards.

I have 10 fingers, but when I was in high school, I wrote all my papers on a manual typewriter that jammed if you used basically anything except two forefingers. We might have had a "keyboarding" class, but the guidance counselors pretty much told us we didn't need to learn to type unless we wanted to be secretaries when we grew up. Instead, I learned draftsmanship using a board and T-square. You can guess which skill is more useful now (hint: the second one was supreseded by CADD, which involves tying).

I have to be admit my initial reaction was one of pedantry--"Bullshiznit!" I thought, "that can't be right."

About a second later I went, "Hee hee!"

Now I want to go back to all the ones I contradicted and look for the punch lines.

I'm still missing them. Doubtless because, being a hydrogeologist, I'm too stupid!

Kirth, just call yourself a "traditional method draughtsman" and make your money selling blank panel boarders to comic artists. Of course, those comic artists will only buy five or six layouts before they start copying them with a lightboard or something; typical!

There's no amount of money that would make me have to listen to Frank Miller's political rants all day.

That was exactly my reaction. I thought it couldn't be real, but the more I read it, the harder it made me laugh. Eventually, I spewed beer on the keyboard. Sad, but true.


I'm totally refusing to take sides in the Kirth Gersen-Aberzombie Factual Accuracy Grudgefest of 2012.

EDIT: That should go after the Kirth post.

Madonna and Michael Jackson were both born in 1958.

This might not be the place for it (derailing this thread? just try!) but is hydrogeology more a matter of groundwater, erosion, or both?

Spoiler:
I do things like calculate the radius of influence of wells, or determine where chemicals in groundwater will end up over X amount of time, or figure out how to capture and/or remediate said chemicals in groundwater before they get there, or figure out how much you'd have to pump in order to dewater a pit, and so on. So, yeah, mostly groundwater stuff.

W.T.F. I skimmed over the "comic," almost read some of the stuff in the blog part, and then a dark terror came over me and I fled, never to return.

Did you know...
If you rearrange the letters in "Donna Barr," they spell "Shub-Niggurath."
