My name is purple now. It looks strange to me because I was so used to it being pink, but I like the new color.

Beware. You might be turning into a barbababa.

Yesterday I was invited to a linguists' ball. Barely knowing anyone there, being ignorant about nearly all aspects of linguistics and only having received my invitation in the nick of time, I still went, never saying no to a good ball. Considering the affair was a ball (the invite clearly said so), I naturally got into my white tie and tails. When I arrived there the establishment where it was supposed to be held turned out to be a pansy bar of low repute, but still I pressed on. Upon entering the ballroom I found that everyone in attendence was wearing t-shirts with jeans. Oi, this wasn't my kind of ball after all. You can't trust invitations anymore.

Noam Chomsky doesn't care that you showed up.  He told everyone to wear jeans.  He won't apologize that you didn't get the message.

It must have been in subliminal phonetic vowel shifts unnoticable to anyone but a linguist.

That would have been an interesting, yet annoying, invitation.

Gay sympathisers: they all up in our banks, taking our deposits, charging us mystery fees, giving God-fearing retail managers filthy lucre when all they wanted was a few rolls of 'in God we trust' quarters for their cashiers.

Those sounds like some awesome lyrics for a rap.

What You Say To Someone You Don't Like

Congratulations, you're going to Mexico!
But there's one little thing that you should know
The water there, it tastes so nice
It tastes even better if you add ice.
So drink it up, as much as you can
And have a great little trip, my man!

Friends, the Prom video.  I always think people during the 80s were sweaty. I have no idea why. The videos from the 80s make them look like that:)

Today I broke my toe, possibly sprained my wrist, and got sunburn - who here has been using their Kelly voodoo doll?!

Changing the name of the thread in your post is fun. It ends up with that name in the recent post list.

Is that dwarf bearded lady reference for me? 


If so, sorry to have offended you, possibly with the go dog go page I posted in the middle of Ray's meltdown, or anything else I might have done. 

I've provided myself an avatar to remind me to be kind to anonymous strangers instead of being tempted to be callous callow and catty on the internet.  My God!  What temptation!

This is the current list of highest post counts:

39,107 - ialmisry
34,768 - PeterTheAleut
32,076 - Justin Kissel
22,445 - mike
22,433 - Mor Ephrem
20,230 - Fr. George
17,275 - orthonorm
16,806 - biro
16,382 - ozgeorge
14,345 - Marc1152

But supposing we all joined the forum on the first day, and our average posts per day remained the same, what then would the highest post counts look like?

65418 - hecma925
63356 - ialmisry
60482 - Porter ODoran
58290 - TheTrisagion
48668 - Cyrillic
47578 - PeterTheAleut
44783 - orthonorm
44487 - biro
42188 - mike
32083 - Justin Kissel
24004 - Fr. George
23977 - marc1152
22433 - Mor Ephrem
18415 - ozgeorge

Of course things would never work that way for the great majority, but nevermind that y'hear?

What is it with depressed upper-middle class white kids cutting themselves? Why can't they just self-abuse like everyone else?

Cutting is self-abuse.  ::)

What is it with you and euphemisms? Why can't you just call it masturbation like everyone else?

Typing it makes me feel dirtier than doing it. Just saying, I've never got the cutting thing. Especially when "self-abuse" is much more harmless and actually feels good.

Then at least pick an appropriate euphemism or 500. So that people don't think you're actually, you know, cutting yourself.

I wish I had more confidence to ask out the cute blonde woman who works at the local pet store. I've gone there twice this week for frog food just so I could see her again.

No idea. Either man up and cut all the way or get rid of the knife. Everything in between is pathetic.

Choking the snake probably doesn't help against depressions.
