Well, as long as he didn't succeed in his trying. I understand that the young ladies of Northern Ontario would just point and laugh, and that his coffin was the only one ever made with a convex part of the lid. In fact, I noticed the extensive sinking at a certain spot on his grave when I was looking for him.

Shane HAS tried to reproduce! Fortunately for all of us, though, his attempts were fruitless.

Hell, if you want slow transmission, try the French method--they transmit their bits phonically with "oou" equal to zero, and "ahhh" equal to one.   They save a lot on copper wire, but it costs a great deal in repeater stations. It has a very low rate of Baud-de-l'aire.

I was being generous when I guessed at 600 baud. Much slower and it might as well be someone reading words or numbers over the phone line.

Sorry I've been away all day, MOM. It was a long day at work.

Yes, and I never will. I don't fight with dead guys, and I don't speak ill of the dead. If I did, I would say that Shame McBride was a drunken, but failed, attempt; that after him the mold was broken by court order; that he deserved his nickname of "Teeny Weeny"; and that because Tim Horton's was having a donut sale no one attended his funeral except for people he died owing money to. But I never say bad things about the vitally challenged and so I can't say that he was a two-bit, backstabbing, beer-stealing, Budweiser-drinking, bottom-dealing, bottom dweller who, fortunately for the human gene pool, never got a chance to try to reproduce.

My sword works the same way. Sometimes I'll find it all ready to go, waiting to fill my hand, because it knows that I'll be using it. It kinda takes the fun our of fencing though, since it knows what to do before it's been done. But I do win all of my bouts....

Maybe you have joggled your transtemporal lobes around with all that target practice?

By the way how do you hit an object when it is moving through time at a rate of something like one frame every 1/c second? Special transtemporal ammo?

They did a story about them on NPR last week or I wouldn't have known about them, but I know I always loved typing on the old IBM Selectric keyboard. I hope to enjoy my typing more and perhaps improve the accuracy. Alas, it won't help my spelling, so it might be a wash.

My question about the vicious dogs has been answered to my satisfaction on another thread. The reason people who appear to have nothing worth stealing are likely to have several vicious dogs is to keep you from going into their yard looking for something they may have stolen from you.

Our here in The Real West we don't use none of them namby-pamby bedroom slippers. Black Nate did, once, in the bunkhouse, and Cosi thought Nate's feet had been devoured by bunny rabbits and so Cosi liked to beat them feet to death before cooking them up as rabbit hash.

Perhaps he was thinking that my voice is good enough for any TWO opera singers. Or, I suppose, he may have been thinking that "lexical" came from the Latin (lex, legis: law) and was comments upon the US legal system, comparing it to two clowns.

Then there is his recent fascination with a kayak, which spelled backwards is kayak, and his iphone, which spelled backwards is enohpi (a word in Tongan for an act which can only be described as indescribably disgusting, foul, unnatural and obscene).

In any case I agree with you: the poor chap has finally, resolutely, and with knowledge aforethought, gone over the edge.

Hi Mom!

Just popping my head in to ask a couple of stupid questions...

If you open a bottle of ketchup, use a bit of it, and put the remainder in your refrigerator, it'll keep for ages without going bad. But if you open a bottle of tomato juice, use a bit of it, and put the remainder in your refrigerator, it'll go yucky in just a few weeks. Why? Ketchup is mostly tomato juice, so why doesn't it go bad too?

And another thing...

Have you ever noticed that the people most prone to owning vicious dogs are the ones who are also least likely to have anything worth stealing?

Pagliacci (Players, or Clowns) is an opera consisting of a prologue and two acts written and composed by Ruggero Leoncavallo. It recounts the tragedy of a jealous husband in a commedia dell'arte troupe. (Its name is sometimes incorrectly rendered as I Pagliacci with a definite article.)

Pagliacci premiered at the Teatro Dal Verme in Milan on May 21, 1892, conducted by Arturo Toscanini with Adelina Stehle as Nedda, Fiorello Giraud as Canio, Victor Maurel as Tonio, and Mario Ancona as Silvio.

Since 1893, it has usually been performed in a double bill with Pietro Mascagni's Cavalleria rusticana, a pairing referred to in the operatic world colloquially as "Cav and Pag". It is the only one of Leoncavallo's operas that is still widely staged.


Lexical, of course, refers to words. I think that Amos means that I am an opera about two clowns with words, or perhaps an opera with words about two clowns.

Whatever he means I don't believe I know of an opera WITHOUT words. That would make the libretto difficult indeed.

Amos, you have raised the bar on verbose pomposity again! I'm impressed. I intend to use the term "lexical Pagliacci" frequently as soon as I find out what it means, and I will use it to intimidate the less erudite around here, such as the cook over at Rombo's. He'll stare at me in stupefaction, not knowing what to say! Oh, what fun it will be! ;-)

If you'd get the ceiling fan fixed the condensation from the shower wouldn't be so bad. Amazing how those glossy magazines and rotogravure sections stick together when they get moist, isn't it?
