Well, not to put too fine apoint on it but you're analysis is off by two hours, since 20:22 is 22 after 8, not 22 after 10.

As for the long labor, I suspect mebbe five minutes.

But I like the hot air--that's a nice touch.

Sayl, Rap, you've given me an idea for Shane's epitaph when he someday leaves this world:

"Look upon my life, ye Mighty, and despair!"

I find Chongo much realer than Rap's delusionary excesses. Why? Well, he's more modest, that's why. Rapparee needs to attend a self-help course to cure himself of monumental grandiosity.

As for you, Amos, your continued attacks upon poor Chongo do you no credit, but reveal a nasty undercurrent of specist prejudice that is as shameful as it is uncalled for. Only a heartfelt apology can clear the air. I hope you realize that, my good man.

Look! The beauty of 45678 in various bases, from binary to base 36! Look upon the wonders of mathematics, number theory, and long hours I spent preparing this table just for MOABites! And look at Base 3: it proves CONCLUSIVELY that th world ended at 10:22 pm, December 22, 2010 and that we're all living on borrowed time! Look upon my works, Ye Mighty, and despair!

Here's the rub, Rapp: the imagination which you claim is the figmenter of all of us figments itself, in truth, a figment of your imagination; the truth is that we are not, ourselves figments of your imagination, but rather that your impressions of us are figments of your figmentary imagination, which is a product, in turn, of your actual imagination. Not that it doesn't take considerable horsepower to dummy up a whole extra layer like that and then imagine everything into it, but much as I respect the heroic aspects of your delusion, it's a case of loving honor more and all that.

You are all figments of MY imagination. Chonga is a figment of a figment. Her/his ideas are figments of a figment of a figment. I believe that Apple would sell and iPod to anything with the money, especially since they are already sold by any store which can cough up the wholesale price. Face it: Apple, while making decent products in their Chinese factories, sold out years ago. Where is the vision that created the Macintosh or the Lisa? -- gone, sold for as figurative thirty pieces of silver! No further proof is needed than the Apple/Samsung lawsuit: "Your product is rectangular! You breached out patents on rounded corners! We patented the color black! Waaaaaa!"

As a figment, in your water-thin "world" as you so fatuously call it, you have none of these. Even fictitious ones! Oh, and I have an iPhone, also. Neener, neener--Apple wouldn't even SELL an iPhone to a simian.

Canadian history is, for the most part, a bit more sober and less dramatic than that (with a couple of exciting parts when the USA tried to take us over, admittedly....oh, and there was the Riel Rebellion, but I digress...).

gnu, I thought it was Sergeant Renfrew and his dog Cuddles. Are you sure it's Corporal Renfrew?

Oh, another thing, gnu...I noticed you engaging in furious combat with the legions of the terminally self-righteous over on another "gun control"-related thread. My heart went out to you, as it does to anyone who gets drawn into such fractious and profitless and mean-spirited discussions, all of which soon descend into gross stereotyping and personal attack on one set of people by another set of people. One is better off to just avoid such threads entirely, I think, and I usually do make sure to avoid (posting on) them....but then a shocking thought occurred to me! Your member name gnu is an anagram for the word.....gun! Yikes! I wonder if the holier-than-thou who have the moral solution to everything have noticed THAT!!!!

Let's hope not. ;-D It could get even worse if they do.

There's a race of men that don't fit in,
A race that can't stay still;
So they break the hearts of kith and kin,
And they roam the world at will.

They range the field and they rove the flood,
And they climb the mountain's crest;
Theirs is the curse of the gypsy blood,
And they don't know how to rest.

If they just went straight they might go far,
They are strong and brave and true;
But they're always tired of the things that are,
And they want the strange and new.

They say: "Could I find my proper groove,
What a deep mark I would make!"
So they chop and change, and each fresh move
Is only a fresh mistake.

And each forgets, as he strips and runs
With a brilliant, fitful pace,
It's the steady, quiet, plodding ones
Who win in the lifelong race.

And each forgets that his youth has fled,
Forgets that his prime is past,
Till he stands one day, with a hope that's dead,
In the glare of the truth at last.

He has failed, he has failed; he has missed his chance;
He has just done things by half.
Life's been a jolly good joke on him,
And now is the time to laugh.

Ha, ha! He is one of the Legion Lost;
He was never meant to win;
He's a rolling stone, and it's bred in the bone;
He's a man who won't fit in.

Seems to me it's about time for words like "moil" and "marge," i.e.,

There are strange things done in the midnight sun
      By the men who moil for gold;
The Arctic trails have their secret tales
      That would make your blood run cold;
The Northern Lights have seen queer sights,
      But the queerest they ever did see
Was that night on the marge of Lake Lebarge
      I cremated Sam McGee.

The REAL William Preston has done so many things it is unbelievable--he was an Irish poet, a Confederate general, a senator, Presiding Bishop of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints...the list goes on and on:

William Preston (actor) (1921?1998)

William Preston (Royal Navy officer), captain in the British Royal Navy who, along with James Stirling, was responsible for the foundations of Perth and Fremantle in Western Australia
William Preston (UK politician) (1874?1941), Conservative M.P. for Walsall, 1924?1929
William Alfred Preston (1848?1944), MPP in Ontario, Canada
William B. Preston (Mormon) (1830?1908), Presiding Bishop of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 1884?1907

You see, if "Y" stands for "TH" then we've been doing things wrong.

It's "Thippee ti-thi-tho get along little dogies" and "Thee-HAH!" and "Thoung ladth, thou're in big trouble!" and "Whth, mommth dearest?" and "Billth the Kid" and "John Wathne" and "The Battle of Thpres" and "Night and thay, thou are the one" and so on. I don't think this will cause manth problems. Ads can still sath things like "Thou'll be thounger looking bth using Oil of Olath". Thes, I think we should honor our ancestral heritage and again use "TH" where ever a "Y" now appears.
