Kramer didn't say anything! Michael Richards made quite a fool of himself, though!

Here in Wisconsin the Republicans tried to make a big deal about a Democratic US Senate candidate (and eventual winner) using the term "injun" in an offhand remark about a meeting on the Indian reservation starting late because he was "on injun time." I was gratified to see it (so far) excluded from this list! (Even the Indians themselves said they weren't offended...)

... and capitalize, apparently.

I realize it isn't earth-shaking, I just find the topic interesting, and the characterization (yes, with a "z"!) of American spellings as "nonsense" needed a retort.

To quote Nick, Your Company's Computer Guy:

You're Welcome!

That's one way of looking at it. However, Wikipedia says:

"Webster's dictionary preferred simpler and more modern spelling, whereas [Samuel] Johnson was more conservative, preferring older spellings which reflected the origins of words rather than pronunciation."

It also says not all the simpler spellings caught on, however, e.g. "tung" for "tongue"...

What's spelled aluminium? Aluminum isn't!
And spelled isn't spelled spelt!

I know because Firefox 2.0 just underlined them! =)

Thousands of years? Modern English is from around 1550-1600. Uniform spellings didn't take hold until the time of dictionaries, and the first British one predates the first American one by not even 75 years. A far cry from "thousands"!

"Nonsense"? The British spellings of color and center are the nonsensical ones. Who says "col-our" or "cen-tray"?

Or let's vote! 60 million vs 300 million, thanks for playing!

American English is the world standard, get used to it.

And this from an Anglophile. Long live Monty Python!

Um, not exactly. From the Urban Dictionary (one of many definitions listed, but I found it insightful):

teh
1. For English speakers, this is a typo of 'the' turned into an overused deliberate typo of 'the' by leet speakers. They mostly use it for 'the', 'very', or both at the same time.

2. For leet speakers, 'the', 'very', or both at the same time. There is no 'the'.

A wild bear could obviously tear a human apart if it were so inclined.

This is not a wild bear, of course. No doubt the animal has been taught what will happen if it shows aggression, and I think it looked a little loopy besides. Not cool.

Yeah, remember how VCRs destroyed the movie business?

You can save even more if you make bloody ghosts!

Sorry.

Ahem, the pairs are from Europe or North America, not one from each.

You can find bios of some of the participants and how they met on the guy's website.

How would their resemblances ever be noted in the first place if they were on different continents?

An aside, why is it called "I'm not a look-alike" when it's about look-alikes, anyway?

I need one-a these to pro-tect my testi-clees!

Oct 19th, 2006


Ah, the irony...

Logically inconsistent. Kinda wrecked it for me.

Also, whoever titled the video on YouTube used "everyday" instead of "every day" and "One Picture Ordinary" makes no sense.

Okay, I'm done now.

What isn't a number about 2DEE7C?

(The description DOES say hexadecimal!)

What if I bitch about the bitch bitching about the bitching? Would that make me ultimate-er?

I do apologize for making such an obvious comment though. I hereby rescind it and replace it with:

That was... stultifying.

I don't think once they are piled out over your chin that you are properly "wearing" them any more...

And as records go, big whoop, there was no skill required beyond collecting t shirts in various sizes!

"eye and eye pillows"?

It's good to see the Rastafarians doing something constructive, mon!

LOL

(Quite a coincidence this link was posted on the same day that the comic strip Opus was about butts!)

Weird, now the cache link has expired, but the original works again!

*Blink*

Yeah, nothing!

Guess it just seems so old testament! =)

Not Veggie Tales, it uses real vegetables, not cartoon ones. Extremely well done.

Where's the Faces of Pot page?

Oh, right...

Ha ha, hate to be a downer but all I could do is wonder what the poor thing has been through.

I used to poke fun at my Mom and sister for watching it. People crashing on an island with a monster on it, indeed!

Then I started watching the reruns during the summer last year when there was nothing else on.

...it is wicked cool.

They should mirror the site in German, because Germans love David Hasselhoff.

Healthy and Delicious. Ordinary.

Why do burger joint names often sound sexy, anyway? Here in the Midwest we also have "Hot 'n' Now" burger joints.

Leading to the inevitable "I like mine Hot 'n' Now!"

(Actually the two around here failed. They had "olive burgers" and regular. I have had both the best burger I ever had there and the worst. I think the worst was when just a hint of the olive juice got into a regular, not enough to taste like olive, just weird!)

Heh, I just found out that they added an option to leave off the TicketBastard watermark.

At the end of the blog's comments is one about how some college students ordered a 666x666 for ditch day. They had to drive a ways to get it because a local In-N-Out wouldn't make a 666x666 because 666 is the number of the beast!

Almost as stupid as buildings skipping the 13th floor, as if the 14th isn't then really the 13th...

When I worked at a computer manufacturer we actually had a customer refuse a box that had a S/N something like 1000666... We just slapped another S/N on the same box!
