      Major Update to OL (please click to open)   02/09/2016

      Sorry for the inconvenience, but we had to update OL and there have been some serious changes made by IPB. The real bad news is that they had to merge User Names and Display Names. This meant that I had to choose between bad and bad. I opted to keep the log-on information the same, so you can get on OL like you always did, but now your User Name is displayed. If your User Name and Display Name were the same, you will not feel the change. If they were different, you are probably irritated right now. I will figure out how you can change this so you can revert to the Display Name you used before if you like, however this may entail a change in how you log-on. The good news is that OL is now searchable from the very beginning. This means all the old posts from the A-Team in Objectivism (and everybody else) will finally show up when you search for something. I will keep changing this announcement as we adapt to these new changes. It's a pain, I know, but after looking around the backend for a bit, I believe the benefits will far, far outweigh the current irritation. They changed things in a hamhanded way and I don't like that, but I can't do anything about it. Benefit-wise, they actually did a good job, so please bear with us. In addition to this change, many good things are coming over time. You are the reason OL exists and I am sorry you have to go through this. Think of it like birth pangs... (All right, all right, that's forcing it.  ) Michael

19 Regional Words All Americans Should Adopt Immediately

Use all 19 in as few sentences as possible...

Winners get...well... recognized as winners! (I'm betting someone from Canada wins).

Since this has nothing to do with hockey, you are probably right. :laugh:

Speaking of my NY Rangers first stop Ottawa...

Just arseling around, having been jabbled up by the coelacanth for 2 weeks, to the point of faunching and burking at one's own muzzle-wittedness and the impossibility of mugging up enough or even slugging beyond one's arky tech capabilities, one comes across this whoopensacker of a thread, wherein one finds not only a larruping hockey taunt from one whose team obviously has lost its jasm, perhaps from a surfeit of wapatuli or too many snuggies, and may soon subside into the snirt, but also the mention of "winning" something , although the something is not detailed and one hopes the judges of winners are neither too snoopy nor to chinchy-- this was a slatchy moment in the day of a bufflehead.

I left out one word part but the coelacanth will not let me edit a post anymore, as I have wailed on other threads.

Chuck Norris, who needs him?

I love Chuck Norris!

My Karate instructor competed against Chuck Norris in the late 60's. He is more than just a celebrity. He founded "Kickstart Kids" and has always tried to be a "force for good". Many people have great respect for Chuck Norris the man, his celebrity status aside.

I have nothing against the valiant Chuck, in factI admire him for using his physical skills and not weaponry to be a force for good (if I am thinking of the right Chuck.) I was just adding onto a zany banter line that MSK started long ago on SOLO and quoted here somewhere.

I missed the zany banter...though if it was long ago it is certain I have forgotten it. The advantage of a poor memory is I can re-read my favorite books every couple of years with the same enjoyment. I've forgotten if there are any other advantages.

When I saw the "19 words" article the first thing that popped into my head was "daunce could make a sentence out of all these words and it would actually make sense". I didn't expect anyone else to even try. You have crazy word meister skills. Best wishes to you and your lucky students.

BTW: Martial arts training includes weapons. It also includes character building. A weapon in the hands of a good person does not make that person a bad person.

Thx Mikee. I am not against weapons. As I mentioned elsewhere, I am a rifle owner. I am against handguns and do not believe private citizens in Canada should be allowed to carry them, as I do not wish to live amongst an armed citizenry. I know it is different in the US, I believe I now have a thorough understanding of the rationale, though I will never agree with it.

My memory is rotten, but I comfort myself it is not old age since it has always been rotten, except for names and text. I have been losing my glasses since I was 16 and first got them, and in fact right now I can't remember where I last left them.

"Daunce, darling!"

Hmm, other than my respect for alliteration, sure sounds sensually serious to me...

"Editorial advice."

Must be a Canadian euphemism...

Seems to me that the lady doth protest too much...

Just some editorial commentary...
