    But do they understand what "au lieu" means?

  2. You are the erudite personification of perspicaciousness.

    I looked at the thumbnail online and it does not easily show what I
    describe. Get thee to a newsstand, and when viewed in hand it is

    Not to mention loquacious! :)

  6. Victimization of women? I'm the victim here. I'm victimized by the lack of
    magazines that contain both cute girls AND complete sentences. I would be
    happy with just the latter. Perhaps I should remove all the advertisements
    for bargain gene sequences in an issue of "Nature" and replace them with
    Maxim girls.

    Now I understand why the French refer to it as a "capote inglesi".

    Depending on the ages of the people you are talking to, they might still
    consider you one yourself.

  10. One thing that the World Wide Web has taught me is that if you can
    think of a fetish, somebody has it.

    Men (women have fetishes too, but it's rare) manage to fetishize
    virtually every part of the human (and non-human!) body. I'd be
    shocked if nobody had a knee fetish. A google search for "knee
    fetish" turned up a few hits, but the first one I tried led to one of
    those sites that opens up different windows repeatedly, so I gave up
    on trying to find you a knee fetish web page.

  11. I've yet to see concrete evidence that anyone in this group is older than
    21. And most of the evidence points to somewhat below that figure.

    Some people, it seems, manage to remain 13 for several decades (pointing no

    I find that it is typically those that are just barely past adulthood who
    like to throw the "how old are you" line around as you are here. Apparently
    this age aspect of sizing people up seems especially relevant to those who
    recently felt "un-adult", and they are trying to spread their "adult"
    peacock feathers by questioning the age of others. If that is not what
    you're doing here, then perhaps you might try a different approach.
    Mxsmanic is one of the most unbearably deliberate dunderheads by choice, and
    also one of the oldest residents of my kill-file...but the "age card" just
    makes those who deal it look silly.

  13. Isn't that the capitol of Perspica?

  14. D'oh. That's what I get for changing the wording from what I had written
    originally. Realis(z)ed as soon as I clicked 'send' that I had used the
    adjective instead of the noun.

    Oh well. Time to go to the pub.

  16. Just to preface my reply, my observation was simply that the behaviour of
    some NG members doesn't necessarily reflect their age. As I said before (and
    I do hate repeating myself) many alleged adults in Usenet seem to bear
    striking similarities to thirteen-year-olds. If I must give examples, then I
    challenge you to look through a day's posting on r.p.e.35mm and find an
    absence of:
    a) Trolling
    b) Flaming
    c) Inappropriately interesting handles
    d) Personal vendettae
    e) "Sizing up"
    f) posts like this.
    Absolutely. However, a short while ago someone asked the question "how old
    are the NG members?"
    The number of responses from older members was phenomenal. So if adolescents
    throw the question out to "test the water", then the evidence suggests elder
    members of the group have a tendency to a) become defensive, b) make life
    hard on the youth, or c) revel in the attention and chance to extoll wisdom
    in response. So kindly don't assume because the topic of age appears in a
    post of mine that I am in any way insecure about it... or at least any more
    so than the average group member.

    My age is irrelevant; I have wasted rather too much of it reading Usenet,
    asking pointless questions, giving pointless answers and reading threads
    that I can make no useful contribution to, nor extract useful information
    from. If I am still doing this in ten years time, I may have to visit a
    doctor. Failing that, a UA (usenet anonymous) meeting might help.
    .... where as the word "dunderhead" is the height of intellectual critique?

    Mxsmanic is one of the most unbearably deliberate dunderheads by choice,
    Ah... But words like dunderhead can be dealt about regardless of one's
    education, background, intelligence, or...age. :)

    Actually, that particular word was my my most respected college professor's
    favorite term to throw about during class sessions. This was some years
    ago, but the word stuck. :)

    ITYM 'perspicacity'.

    Or possibly even: "You are the very personification of both perspicacity
    and erudition."
