That's just one of the mysteries of Womanhood that we wouldn't get even if they told us :-)

It's okay, we men have our mysteries too, like why farts are so damn funny:-)

farts are funny to people of all genders. Toilet humor is a universal constant.

and yea I don't get why ppl are cagey about their ages either. If you're famous enough it'll be on wikipedia for all to see anyway.

I'm on Wikipedia :-) go ahead search it for Captain Yesterday, bet I'm on there :-)

Gasp I didn't know you were in Futurama!

There are a few of us, Evil Lincoln is still around, tho I believe he's mythic now.

Not me, I'm too busy, got a lot on my plate and am too cool for mythic :-)


Their only regret is not being on the same episode as Gygax.


Oh, Lord.

I met him when I was 8 actually, one of the perks of growing up in Wisconsin :-)


That and unlike in Red Dead Redemption, I know how to ride a f%#*ing cow!

I think I found a grey/white hair once.

I'm 22.

I didn't find another one though so maybe it was a fluke.

Shee-it, mine started turning grey when I was in high school.
Yeah, that happened to my cousins too. I was able to hide white hairs until my early twenties thanks to having light hair to begin with. And this is what dye is for. Now I can have cartoon character hair! Yay! :D
this only makes you incredibly attractiver.

Flattery is always appreciated. :)

My wife is older than me, and looks younger. She hasn't had a single grey hair pop up.

Mind you, since I shaved and cut my hair, I have been told I look like I dropped about 8 years. So there's that. If I take my glasses off it's ridiculous.

I still get carded on those ultra-mega-crazy rare cases where I buy something age restricted.

Okay, this reminds me of a small tangent (but sorta related): why do so many women not like telling their age? Or worse yet, lie and say they're younger than they are? I'd rather be 40 and look 30 and have people be like "NO WAY!" than be 40, say I'm 30, and have people raise an eyebrow at me like "Uh huh, sure you are..."

Let me know if you ever figure it out. It's a mystery to me too, and I am a girl. I like to celebrate the entirety of the time I've managed to escape death so far. No downgrading the scope of the accomplishment. :P

Well, The Gentleman with the silvery hair said I'm not to discuss such matters, but: There was once a Christian named Julius Caesar, who... Forgive me, um... who... who landed in England and was met by three gentlemen, all named John Hollyshoes.

Wait, that's not what I meant to say... The master of the castle of Pity-Me had a magical ring that was stolen by his daughter and eaten by a Christian goose at St Matthew's feast.

Dangit!

Ireland and Scotland are part of Britain. Britain is more than England.

Utter sacrilege and blasphemy!

(but seriously i know a number of irish and scots who would violently disagree with you)

And when I say 'violently' I mean that the sail éille and a couple of stray swords may be involved. Maybe even the rallying of ragtag forces in various p-celtic languages who are definitely not wearing woad because it actually makes a terrible body paint. Who knows.

(and that just about sums up my entire knowledge of the cultures of historical speakers of the Celtic language family. Seriously it could be written on the back of my hand, in an iron-based blue paint that's both safer and actually sticks.)


They can disagree all they want. Opinion doesn't dispute fact.


ok if we're talking who's currently subject to who I can't help but notice you said 'ireland' and not 'northern ireland'. The Republic of Ireland is not part of the UK, not part of Great Britain, and the people who live there are not British.

Personally I'm thankful for the uilleann pipes, as well as the great highland bagpipes, the Swedish säckpipa and every other bagpipe instrument that exists on this beautiful earth.

Such as the säckpipa. I love bagpipes so bloody much.

Maybe when the gay-hating pit preacher comes to campus I'll just play bagpipes in his face, in full viking age garb for added obnoxiousness.

Kilts are totally coming back! Especially amongst the biker crowd surprisingly, also there's this old dude that wears a kilt to work at Target.

Check out Utilikilts.com they're based in Seattle and have tasteful, well made kilts :-)

My heritage is half Swedish and half Irish on my mom's side, Welsh and Romanian (Transylvania specifically) on my dad's side.

Also my mom loves France, so as a kid every summer we had French exchange students spend the summer, so I'm quite familiar with France:-)


That's a lot of ethnic groups.

Me I'm just regular old home-grown Polish.

I have a grudge against france. and england, for that matter.

you must delve into the FaWtL history and discover the truth yourself.

I'd try to help with that Swedish longship problem, but I actually know nothing about sailing at all, even sailing in the viking age or migration period.

I wouldn't call the Swedish longship a problem, he earned his pillaging rights, he also named Wrath of the Righteous :-)

Ireland and Scotland are part of Britain. Britain is more than England.

I suppose it depends whether you mean 'British' as in 'Citizen of Great Britain', or 'British' as in 'English', or 'British' as in 'A Briton', i.e. Welsh (everybody forgets about the Welsh, which, understandably, really pisses them off), or 'English' as in 'Anglo-Saxon', i.e. sort of German, or Scots who were originally Irish apart from the ones who were Picts and the ones who were also Welsh, i.e. Britons and oyoyoyaieeigigiaaaghigiveup.

Northumberland - the Northeasternmost (if that's a word) county in England, in case you were wondering, also has Famous Bagpipes.

I do have a lot of grey hairs, and my uncle was completely white by the age of 45 or so. This may be due to my rock-solid Britnitude or it may have something to do with the less thoroughly Anglo-Saxon bits of my background (which could be Greek, Italian or Jewish. Not sure)


Anglo-Saxons were Germanic tribes who settled in the british isles in the 5th-6th century or so, which famously includes the Angles, Saxons and Jutes, but others were involved as well.

Just a caveat here that 'German' and 'Germanic' don't mean the same thing. Germany is a young national concept going back to the foundation of the German Confederation in 1814. Before that the region was a collection of many small sovereign states which variously may or may not have been part of the Holy Roman Empire (which should not be confused with the actual roman empire). And the origin of the HRE itself lies in the crowning of Charlemagne in 800, so after the time of the pre-migration Angles.

On the other hand, 'Germanic' refers to this language family, or cultures historically associated with this language family. (On a side note since Yiddish is a Germanic language, my definition happens to count Ashkenazim as a Germanic culture, but I do not know whether Ashkenazi scholars consider their own culture to be Germanic so I'm leaving that an open question)

(Also I should warn that I do not focus on history taking place past 1066 or past christianization of whatever regions I'm studying)

Oh I love it when those hateful type preachers come to campus. Usually it goes poorly for them. They proudly proclaim I am going to hell as I walk past. I stop and loudly proclaim their heresy before God and then quote the Bible to them. This angers them and they demand I repent. Instead I quote more of the Bible and rebuke them... I even got one of them once to deny the entire book of Mathew. They really have to learn that preaching lies is NOT going to satisfy God.

One time I read Þrymskviða at a pit preacher, but the particular guy had a will of steel and kept on with his speech, so it turned into a shouting match.

I'd like to believe I shouted louder. There were a few folks nearby who enjoyed the story i was telling, so I guess they were able to hear me over his racket.

EDIT: but yeah it's amazing at how poor of a grasp those people have of their own religion!

EDIT: part of the reason why I want to learn to play bagpipes is you can't shout over a bagpipe.

although I guess I could settle for soloing on my jaw harp and accompanying his speech with cartoony sound effects, but jaw harps aren't very loud at all, or at least mine isn't (stainless steel piece of crap really)

Quote:

Yes, it's been said that a 'good set of pipes' tops out over 110 dB. I have a neighbor who plays up the street when he's 'summoning the storm' you can really hear it above the wind, rain, AND thunder.

"..… “The underlying noise from buses and fire engines on Princes Street is far worse than that of bagpipes. I play the chanter every day for at least two hours. …

The tests found that the bagpipe peaks at 111 decibels outdoors - slightly louder than a pneumatic drill. But when the pipes are played indoors they peak at a 116 dB, about as loud as a chainsaw.

Very loud rock music can reach 150 dB, while a jet airliner taking off peaks at 140 dB."

(I feel spiritual kinship with that neighbor)

I told a minister to shut the f%#~ up, once.

It was my dad, he didn't like it, nope not one bit, I was a stupid teenager that didn't know when to just shut the f&~& up :-)


I guess it depends on what you told him to shut the f!%% up about.

on an unrelated note, my jaw harp is sadly not in the same tune as any of the jaw harps that feature in the songs I listen to. Alas.
