I was tested on WPM with this instrument:



And this instrument:


WPMs posts are always thought provoking and telegraphic, befitting the latter image.

I am thankful he posts here.

Regarding the comment earlier about who is likely to be posted here, just wanted to add a few exceptions related to why I (and possibly others) haven't posted for particular people who haven't been mentioned:

- It's too hard to find a pic which properly conveys what you're thinking
- Images can be found that fit (from your own pov), but they would probably be misunderstood by others
- The person would get angry, track you down, and kill you in your sleep
- The person wants to remain anonymous, or at least partially so
- Assume that other people could probably do them better, having interacted with them much more


EDIT--None of these have anything to do with the earlier kerfuffle, or are meant to comment on it

I agree.  This has proven true for me as well.

Confession: I don't really see Alpo as a hipster-type person, even though I posted a pic along those lines earlier. However, when I do a google image search for "level headed scandinavian" the images which show up aren't helpful; this one for example:



You don't have a huge tat on your head do you Alpo? Probably not.

(PS. If you ever see a short story titled "A Hipster Named Alpo," it isn't about you. I promise.)

This is kind of what I look like twice a year when I get a hair cut. Otherwise I look like Doc Brown (back to the future) with black hair when I wear a lab coat (with emphasis on the large number of pens in my chest pocket).

We all love the Trisagion, almost as much as the hymn who's name he bears.

A very specific photo indeed!  I wonder what the supposed "reverse search for this picture" turns up?  :laugh:

Nice.

That said, I find their lack of beards disturbing.
I honestly thought of that when I posted mine, but otherwise, the pic was just to perfect a personification to ignore!

That's because you all don't know me in person. I'm really just a miserable cuss. :laugh:

Specific enough that I knew who it was before reading the name/logic.

It's true.  The folks who are the nastiest to others are often most thin-skinned and sensitive themselves.

You are caring and kind too but lacking one quality of kindness which is using a different manner to treat what you think is my sin problem by being hostile to my beliefs you don't agree with which is not on attack on me but I worry it will cause me suffering. Maybe gebre is the most loving in a sense that I know he does not want to accept that someone like me in their sins can perish or believe it is his job to face that someone like me in my sins can perish but Antonios love is most needed if I am in wrong
You can disagree with my beliefs without being hostile to them. But I probably need it as I am sometimes am and seem hostile to your beliefs too maybe

I should tell myself this

"Do not assume the worst in others, neither try
to catch them out by their actions or words,
nor let them feel that you have assumed
the post of their criticiser or their enemy"

+ Pope Shenouda +

When have I ever been hostile to you, mikeforjesus?  If anything, I've gone out of my way to be gentle with you, tolerating stuff from you that I would hardly tolerate from other posters.  Can you point to any specific instances for me please?  Thanks.

I said to my beliefs my dear brother
Yes I feel your care for me is greater than others in a sense
You do tolerate me and accept me and show me that God forgives me and is forgiving maybe I am in the wrong but I thought you think my beliefs affect people more than I hope it to
