    I don't think any of them have made the jump so far. If no one tells them, maybe the litttle trolls will stay away.

    Agricola is like a pet spider. I won't mind him showing up. Nothing ever changes in debating him, but it sharpens the skills....

    Hey now, quit insulting Heinlein and Mannerheim! Mannerheim started gnashing his fangs when he read that (with all eight eyes). ;)

    Wolf spiders everywhere would start paratrooping on top of Agricola's house and we'll find the first reported incident of a human dessicated by arachnids?

    Agricola, and anyone from Europe, is welcome on THR as long as the forum rules are respected.

    See my location? :)

    I'm not sure what a "Kidde" is, but I don't think I qualify. I'm probably too old, too conservative and own too many guns. Agricola probably shares at least one of those characteristics... :D

    BTW, I used to be UltimaThule on that (voice cracking), that other board. I just felt like a change, you know. Just had my Christmas bath and everything, so why not a new handle as well?

    Oh, but Ultima Thule was such a cool handle. I didn't matter what it meant. It was the sound of it. Uuuulitma Thuuuule. Uuuultima Thuuuule. Uuuultima Thuuuule...

    Sorry, I must have gotten carried away.

    Myattemtp to help you understand the word, M67. I am guessing that you do NOT fit the term.

    "Kidde" is a kind word that is being used to describe an young child who does not yet know and understand the ways of the world. Could possibly be describing a younger person who is too caught up in themselves, no respect, party crowd, going with the flow, everything is good except anything that comes close to the right wing.

    Not you M67. I haven't seen Metallic Kittty or Konstantin yet. Doesn't apply to Agricola either.

    Glad you're here! :D

    I have many pleasant associations with posts under your old user name. I'll try to mentally associate them with your new one. :D

    Heh, some might argue that "euro-kiddy" would suit me :rolleyes:

    Just joking, not so much a kid anymore, and as to Euros, I fart in their general direction. :p Well, south and downwards, that is ...

    Anyway, Norway is back in numbers. Good to see you Ultima^H^H^H^H^H^H M67! Nice nick, you can't go wrong with a Mauser. I'll see you on the shooting range, and I'll add those Spyderco Natives to my order to Linda Glasshartt. Ønsker deg en fortsatt God Jul og et riktig Godt Nytt År! (Seasons greetings in Norwegian, if anyone wondered...)

    I have a feeling this new board will be a good one! Nice to see you all again! *Grouphug*

    A Spanish lady I know had something to say about that. "English? That's just Norwegian grammar with a French vocabulary." Before moving to Norway she used to teach at an English university, so I assume she knows what she's talking about... :D

    hey now, its not nice to get my hopes up like that....
    if the pic attachment thing were working, you'd be looking at a picture of an arachnid perfectly capable of doing such a thing.

    Let me just say for the record that the only good spider is a boot-squashed and napalm-incinerated spider.

    M67,
    She's grossly underestimating the difficulty of English. I can't really imagine anything more challenging for a non native English speaker than becoming fluent in it. The "ough" string has roughly 452,000 different pronunciations depending on the word and context. It's full of logical contradictions such as inflammable and flammable, and strange redundancies. The worst thing is that conversational English usually bears but a scant resemblance to written English.

    I count myself among the luckiest of the passengers on this planet Earth to have been born right in the middle of it instead of being faced with having to learn it as an adult.

    The French stiffly resist having their language mongrelized, but American English revels in grabbing convenient words from other languages or just making them up when nothing else quite fits. Perhaps its worst faults are the Protean definitions that are perfectly fine.

    To find out what The Constitution means, we have to figure out what the words used meant in 1789, whereas any reasonable person would think the common words used should carry the common definition used today.

    That's all perfectly acceptable to us, but it drives the French nuts, and they could never figure out what a literal translation of that last statement means any more than the Germans could figure out what "Nuts" meant when they demanded the surrender of Bastogne in December, 1944.

    You're right spaceman. Squishing would put me in too close of a proximity. I would opt for my 20 gauge.

    Hey, Kraut, I appreciate your enthusiasm but please refrain from the strong language.

    Edited to say: "Thanks, Kraut!"

    " She's grossly underestimating the difficulty of English "


    Also English only uses 26 letters (which western kids learn in their infant years), whereas Japanese/Cantonese consist of however many hundreds of characters. Japanese students continue to learn the Japanese 'alphabet' well into their high school years, and at the end of it all English is the most difficult language to learn. Go figure.



    And as for the Euro (trash) trolls, I'd say it would be better to spend ones time informing people who aren't intentionally misguided or myopic.

    Preacherman,
    I guess you won't be visiting with us any time soon - I do have a nice furry tarantula. :D
