20. [grinning, ducking, running]
21. And you can't use Google to find that out because...?
22. That's what I get for trying to get some conversation going. Some 19 doing a 23.
23. Thanks for stating the obvious. Moron.
24. This thread has gone south (or, west)
25. Reducing the fundamental arguments to catalogued & readily repeatable will either free us from our past, or doom us all to a life of reciting obscure numbers for eternity.
26. Salad cream
27. Fruit Show.
100011011. If we re-worked the idea into a binary system, we could recite a single number and it would encompass all of the arguments we wanted to make. (In Hex then...FA)
28. I made it to the sidebar!
29. (this insult reserved for future insults)
30. Deadpan. Gales of laughter ensued.
31. I've always thought Joel was full of sound advice, and followed his stuff for years, but this recent article just goes to show he's really lost the plot.
32. I have a PhD.
33. Poo
34. I wish muppet would stop dragging X here
a: psychopaths
b: damsels in distress
c: stupid news links
d: people who post muppet posts who just keep the stupid thing going
(used with supplementary number, e.g. 34c!)
35. muppet is a troll.

44. That 43 was prime.
45. Anybody want some gmail invites?
46. It's disingenuous to refer to the most primitive, arcade exercises when trying to disprove the value of an ideology, but that's what you get when you chat with people who don't know what they're fucking talking about.
47. What are you, retarded?
48. Sympathy reply.
49. I regularly engage in sex with two women simultaneously.
50. Been there, done that.

53. Marijuana is not a drug. It is a leaf.

Can 'arcade' be used an adjective? I can't understand the meaning of 46. Maybe you mean arcane?

Flasher T said...

Grammatically, yes, almost any noun in English can be used as an adjective.

It's a quote from Tycho Brahe, so while he may have had a typo there, in the context it sort of made sense - arcade as in primitive, as in arcade vs. simulation in racing games; so I decided to leave it in there.

Dammit! This is wrong:

20. [grin, duck, run]

Everyone knows it's:

[grinning, ducking, running]

You have the original source right in front of you (figuratively), why don't you just ask him?!

Flasher T said...

That's the way it was in the file Cynic sent me... although I can change it, I suppose. :)

Simon Lucy said...

It must be arcane, not arcade. Arcade means a roofed area, usually with arches.

Since the first of the two files was a cut&paste from the original thread it must have been wrong to start with...

Flasher, can you please add "Been There, Done That"? Thanks.

Flasher T said...
