I like big candles and I can not lie; you other brothas can't deny, that when a girl walks in with a Sunday dress and a beeswax in her hand you get pious...

What you've got is the "Baby got Book" (the Bible one).

And I know that you really want to fire it back up just to play more Civ.

Another fact of the day:

Eva Peron never ruled Argentina.  Her husband Juan Peron's later wife, Isabel, ruled for 2 years after Juan died in 1974.
Quite true. However, the ruling couple idea lives on with Presidenta Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, the wife of former Presidente Nestor Kirchner.

I'm an Archon of OC.Net which is more relevant than being an Archon of the Ecumenical Patriarchate.

Yay!  ;D

Snow in Key West during July (or snow period) would be interesting.
But without moose, not quite as fun.

Did anyone watch the Colts Packers v. Saints game last night?  I felt like it was a little bit of a lack-luster ending.  I wanted the game to keep going personally, but I guess one could say it was well fought. 
Saints blew the game out of the water.  Colts played Sunday night.  ;)

I think Ravens beat Pittsburgh; Too bad John Madden couldn't keep the bus parked in Baltimore for another week, traveling to Dallas for the Giants/Cowboys matchup.

What would "Didaskalous tou Genous" be in Latin?

In fact, can anyone translate all the titles available to the Archons of the Ecumenical Patriarchate into Latin?

Well, since the titles are from the "byzantine empire" and the "byzantine empire" was technically the Roman empire....fill in the blank.

I was "in the lead" for quite a many month, but have fallen behind my esteemed fellow Global Mod.  I would have to go back to my energetic, post in every thread ways, which I have been out of for quite a while.

Greek became the official language of the Byzantine Empire over Latin.  I could have asked for Serbian translations in phoenetic English.  ;)

Well, if you are feeling industrious, you could go to one of the Latin-language websites (i.e. for teaching Latin) and look up in their dictionary sections the words... and then get help from one of our users on Declension/Conjugation/etc.

Now that I've thought about it - I don't think I can.  The two of us are both involved in many threads, so it would be hard for me to go ahead of him in volume by 200 posts or so in addition to our already-high posting rate.

I think I'll have another Pepsi and alternate between watching CSI: Miami and the water main being repaired - 15' x 15' x 10' sinkhole.  No one was hurt nor did anyone's car wind up at the bottom.  8)

We can pick an arbitrary argument

Cleveland: No you can't
SolEX01: Yes I can.

Repeat about 300 times.  ;)

Little known fact:  Tito was the one who standardized the phoenetics, and it was a "communist" reasoning b/c he wanted everyone to have the SAME standard way to write all letters.  So, actually the phoenetics, became "latinica" or a standard way of writing serbian with latin characters. 

Good ole' Tito...lol.

I believe Brittany Spears is Janis Joplin's untalented sister's grandbaby.

Elvis is alive!



He is Barney the Purple Dinosaur!



He is the Pied Piper that leads our children...



Into the wages of sin....



And eternal damnation!
