qfufs slips in and out again wearing his newly discovered 'cloak of invisibility' ( I kid you not, I read something last week about some real progress having been made - granted down at a very small level - in this perhaps questionable field of study)

(Off topic again but ala Whitman, the thread is large and contains multitudes Wink )

I recall from my Cape time that Worcester is Brit-like Wooster.
Also that the things in your dresser are "draws"...but you "drawer" pictures.

Sure, dude.
Your peccadillos are fine with me [as long as you keep your doodling ouy of my drawers]
But your statement is incorrect, because you aren't a Massachusettonian...and they were the species being [off-topically] discussed.

Anyway, been meaning to ask if the Sons of the Plantagenets were spherical or not?

I hear that parts of them were.

And big, too. Hence the name*.

Nice try---you fooled a lot with the name of the twinkling star, but you ain't fooling no one with space balls jokes.

"Why are suns and planets spherical..."

Well, it's rumored that God originally wanted to spend a lot of time and energy making stars and planets as triangular prisms.
But then He decided to cut corners.

That's an interesting angle...but could you round it out a bit?

Enjoy.


I think I mentally mangled the pronunciation of every one of those words/names, except for "Blidworth". Thanks for the entertaining video, Hashi!
