Sufferin' JAYSUS, Amos! You have set Norse mythology back ten thousand years with your bizarre ramblings.... ;-)

Now, listen carefully....this is the English definition of the word "dunder":

Dun´der
n. 1. The lees or dregs of cane juice, used in the distillation of rum.
The use of dunder in the making of rum answers the purpose of yeast in the fermentation of flour.
- B. Edwards.

Further to that, the word "dunder" in the Swedish language means "thunder", as in "dunderberg" (thunder mountain).

Here is a link to an article about the American ironclad "Dunderberg", launched in 1865. They did not name it so to indicate that it was stupid, Amos, they named it so to indicate that it was impressively large and that its guns thundered.

USS Dunderberg, ironclad, 1865

Why are you assuming that the word is Swedish OR English, instead of platt or hoch deutsch?

, it's a derivative meaning, based on the notion that some folks, naming no names, are so taken with the noises generated within their skulls that they lose perspective; they became known as "dunderheads", and by extension over time the word came to mean "fumbling or stupid". That's my story, and I am sticking to it.

As for my contributions to the history of Norse mythology, you are much too kind.

dunder has implied stupid/clumsy/bumbling as long as I've been speaking - maybe it's a regional thing?

Rap: I am assuming nothing, good sir. ;-) I looked it up. You are the one who is assuming.

It means thunder in German too, as far as I know.

I think that the English term dunderhead might relate to thunder inside the skull...or it might more likely relate to drunkenness...since dunder is a byproduct of making rum. Yes, very likely it was drunken sailors staggering about and acting like fools who provided the inspiration for the first use of the term "dunderhead".

You really should read the link about the ship. It was quite impressive.

Why can't there be Neo-norse mythology? All the hairy little gods know I've seen enough warped and twisted Irish/celtoid, egyptian, greek and roman stuff out there.

I particularly liked reading the story of Morrigan and Osiris. It went into a lot of detail about the threefold aspect of Morrigan/Diana/Freya.

'struth!

Odd. Babel Fish just translated "dunder" (from German to English) as "more dunder."

Definitions of dunderhead on the Web:

dunce: these words are used to express a low opinion of someone's intelligence

wordnet.princeton.edu/perl/webwn

The Dictionary of Americanisms offers: "DUNDERHEAD. Blockhead; dolt. The same as the English provincialisms dunder-knoll and dummer-head."

The American Heritage concurs in the possibility of the term deriving from doner, thunder, in Middle Dutch.

"Dunderhead" is a great word. It's even better than "chucklehead". I really think it must derive from rum drinking.

Well, it is certainly louder than chucklehead, as well. Assuming the "thunder" legacy is correct.

Amos, we have had a lot of fun with Babelfish, though. It's a wonderful toy! I love the way it can take the meaning further from what was intended as you move from one language to another and circle back to the original.

Rapaire:

Your play on the word "decade" is far too abstruse and too many times removed from the ordinary experience of your readers to have any impact as a humorous effort whatsoever. Never mind, that's how we learn. By the time you die, you will at least be able to deliver a good punch lin, with any luck. Keep plugging.

Ah, M. Hack...to the contrary, nothing became clear. I get the impression you have an ambition to become a Lithuanian executive for a Yorkshire soccer team so you can demonstrate defiance to your financial backers. I am afraid I have to put this on the same plane as your secret wish to become a chimpanzee employed as a private eye in Chicago in the 1930s.

Perhaps you should borrow Mister Rapaire's rosary -- I understand it has decades...

I wouldn't say redoubling your efforts in the same vein will make a bad situation any better, Rapaire, so you get no score for your parlay on "decadent". In fact it was a rotten joke. But I will give you have a score for your persistence, and your obsession with decimal powers.


As for you, M. Hack, you have some nerve, posting a completely gibberish You Tube link involving some Lithuianian areguing about a football team, and then asking _me_ what meds i am on. This sort of presumptuouos brassiness is worthy of a Rove supporter. Fie on you, I say.

ANd THAT is how you grab a century in this game, folks. Notice the oblique sidle, the irreverent disdain for the play, the quiet stealth with which Rapaire seized the window of opportunity while pretending to be making really bad jokes, and quietly captured nineteen and three. The man is a master, make no mistake. Anyone who has watched his baiting style would know it at a glance.

Amos drove me to it. HE was the one who said "rove" and made me realize that I must flee. Blame him -- I didn't even know that I was posting number 19,300. He is, after all, a sneaky sneak who lives in Southern California and you KNOW what sort of people live there.

No, no! That was Karl typing. I can't hold him back much longer. So, Mom, I'm going to run away until he is exorcised. Mom, I'll be back as soon as I am myself again.

Farewell, cher madre, for the nonce!
