Very funny! Silly scuzzer, brains are for people.

Question. If he has no access to a computer, how did he get it to you? Does he live near you? If so then he must not live in France, or you don't live in Canada, which I don't believe.

Hmmm, the general detirioration of your story leads me to concur with Ghyron, yet not in such big proportions. If he has no access to the computer, how did he email it to you?? Did he write it out and throw the letter into cyberspace?? If he did I want a cyberspace portal too!! Hmmm...

Hrmph, talking about suspicious moderator activity, why do you all of a sudden have custom titles. I have jealousy.

NZrevenge

Ooh! Custom titles? Niiiiiiiiice...

Now, using my extra special powers of logic, I have surmised that is reasonable to assume that if one member can have a custom title, ALL members can have a custom title... Goody goody!

No, no I'm not suggesting that you immediately start accepting requests for different titles! I propose something much more sinister... How about you [mods] change our titles at whenever you see fit? So next time we get a dark lord of spam here, you give him that title. Next time we get an evil megalomaniac shapeshifter here... No, forget that one. You get the idea, members who stick out from the rest (good or bad) should be given titles to reflect that...

Hmmm... I might post something along these lines in the general chat area under that getting rid of post count thread...

EDIT:
It could be linked to his post here - http://www.eidosgames.com/ubb/Forum8/HTML/003512.html - where he claims to be 12. Isn't there one of those need to be 13 or have parental permission things on the new board? Im sure I read that somewhere. I may be wrong thou . . .

No, it sounds more like a retarded "noise" if you take into account my kiwi (New Zealand) accent.

First you say it a little deeper than you normally would, and you hold the "i" as if you were saying "nile" as one constant note.

And for a particularly retard effect, you can add in a bit a of a sheepish "ba-a-a-a-a-h" to the sounds.

The end result will either be a a "Ni-----------------ce" or a "Ni-hi-hi-hi-hi-hi-ce" Depending on how retarded (or fat sounding) you are.

Erm... OK, I'll shut up now

NZrevenge
12th Jul 2002, 14:24
Yeah, it would. But only if you don't have an accent like mine.

New Zealanders and Australians make a mess of English to be honest. We're very lazy and chew all our words together. For instance we barely pronounce the "l" in "milk", so it sounds more like "muik"

On a side note, we say "Mum" and not "Mom" and we write "Colour" not "Color"

12th Jul 2002, 14:59
I take it you have never heard someone that speaks in cockney rymthing slang. I know someone that can. Trust me - that's worse than any other form of English.

Also "Mum" and "Colour" are correct spellings. "Color" is the American spellings. Don't know about "Mom".

Edit - Need to learn to type correctly. Or proof-read.

NZrevenge
12th Jul 2002, 15:04
By saying that "colour" is the correct spelling, you are implying that the American spelling is incorrect. It's just different!

Ofcourse they only did it to try and establish a difference between them and their mother country when they first claimed independance and then united. That's always why they drive on the wrong side of the road! :D

Mom is also an American thing

And to show them it's Color, not Colour, we soundly trounced their buttocks in the Revolutionary War.

And also, I don't understand about something. Say this is a road.

I____i____I
I____i____I
I____i____I
I____i____I

with the I's being the outside and the i's being the divider.Doesn't a driver need to see the outside of the road so he or she will not fly off it? And if you stay to the outside edge you will not hit another car. But we(Americans) drive like this:

I____i____I
I____i_<O_I
I____i__V_I
I____i____I

with the O being the car and the direction it's going
V
and the > being the side the driver is on.

While Britain and other European country's(not sure about Canada) drive like this:

I___i___I
I_O>i___I
I_V_i___I
I___i___I

In both cases neither driver can see the edge of the road on his/her side right next to him/her, which makes it so he/she cannot drive farthest away from the middle of the road as possible. The best configuration would be this:

I____i___I
I_<O_i___I
I__V_i___I
I____i___I

Or this:

I____i___I
I____i_O>I
I____i_V_I
I____i___I

Doesn't that make more sense?

While the Oxford English Dictionary may, or may not be inferior, it was compiled largely by a madman in an insane asylum in England. As to who won the American Revolution, that is a tricky question. The British won most of the major battles, but the Americans acheived their primary aim, independence. This discussion has obviously been driven onto the wrong side of the road, the off topic side of the road.

If driver wanted to pick up a passenger, then provided passenger is up to talk to driver and have a good view of the road (i.e. have a front seat) he is going to

I__O_i___I
<O*_i___I
IV_|_i___I
I==+i___I

risk his life greatly (* is what's going to be the remnants of a to-be-passenger). And also driver will be in greater risk of driving over the middle line and thus crashing into another car.

NZrevenge
14th Jul 2002, 10:26
When I called the Oxford Dictionary inferior, I was being sarcastic and taking a dig at the Americans.

As for which side of the road you drive on, it doesn't matter. The steering columns were also reversed when the Americans switched sides. That way the driver is always closest to the centre of the road, meaning that when you pick up a front-seat passenger they always get on from the footpath, not from the centre of the road.

Though Ghyron is right, this is getting extremely off-topic...

Implies that the driver is on both sides of the car. In other words he's in the middle, with no room for passengers on either side. The < and > signs show which window(s) the driver sits next to. If the there is no driver, then you most likely meant to post this:

DMA: But if you can clearly see the curb, you can stay as close to it as possible, and if your roads are constructed right, that should eliminate any car-crashing-into-car possiblilities other than someone out of his or her own lane for whatever reason, and yes, I do drive.:)

England rules becuase at one time it was in control of 1/3 of the earth's surface. England is recorded as having the largest empire and the longest lasting in human history, and contrary to popular belief england still rules a very tiny percent of its once great empire. England is responsible for the Industrial Revolution, Standerdised Time, The Internet, Issac Newton, Artificial Life forms(the late Gaak for one), The Abolition of Black Slavery and Child Labour, Free Education, Proper roads, the hovercraft, Railways and The USA. Thats just to name a few!

Since when is empire-ship dictated by whether or not you have ruled over foreign powers? The reason the Chinese might not have subjugated another nation is because they damn well had enough on their own plate! They make up a quater of the world's population (and used to make up an even higher proportion). They invented their own medicine, religion, royalty. All the hallmarks of a great empire are there and it doesn't qualify because of that one little point? I think you'd best be putting your tongue back in your mouth before I open up a can of spam on your bum...

The Great Wall of China did work, the mongols had no notion of seige technology and the couldn't climb. You see, the fact that they were all born on horses (I mean that literally), raised with horses, and always fought on horses meant that they all had bandy legs. Yes, I realised they caught onto seige technology later on, but the wall worked for a while atleast...

And lastly, SkrasherSmasher means expensive booze and virgin maidens, don't you? Get it right man!

Update: China was an empire because at is turns out "China" as we know it was actually composed of 23 completely different countries each forced into the empire. The USSR is another example of a long standing empire, though I don't know how long that lasted.

England's "mines the longest" claim would be it's Monarchy. No other country has ever managed to maintain a royal family as long as England has (everyone else has either presidents or dictators).

As for attacking the wall, it turns out they didn't. They simply gave up on attacking mainland China and started going after the far western provinces that had ended up on the wrong side of the wall... Lucky for them huh?

Actually the Chinese supplied all the siege war know-how after being conquered. I don't think the Mongolians ever mastered the art of sige warfare. Didn't want to get there feet too much on the ground i guess. Though with NZrevenge's err... slightly reliable information from his mum they could of made a deal. Eg.

bullet trains and maglevs are "Normal"? They are normal, just very cost inefficient and not worth the trouble replacing the trillion £ worth of track already laid down.

Bush is president because millions more people voted for Gore, but he went into a temer tantrum so the State gave him presidency to calm him down.

If you made someone who didn't want to be president, the president, I doubt he or she would do a very good job (considering that he or she doesn't care). The current American system is one of the best in the world. And from what I know, your George Bush is doing a very good job of running your country.

Republican scum!

Honestly, I want to sue ineffective doctors for as much as I can! What's that Bush, I can't even sue them for a dollar now!? Arg!

Gore should've one.

And it is quite funny how the subject of Scuzzers turned into this...

But really, Bush isn't exactly a bad leader, why does everyone say so? He's pretty good.

I am NOT going to let him pass a law that limits how much I can sue terrible doctors and companies for!

That is the worst law in the history of bad laws. If a doctor messes up my kidney, lungs, or heart, (And of course Testicals!) during surgery, I'll sue for as how much I want! And gas is so exspensive because of him and his "Oil" buddies. I smell El'Revolution!

<Some good presidents were Theodore Roosevelt (Republican), Kennedy (Democrat), Carter (I Forgot), Thomas Jefferson, Clinton (For a Time...), and I do hope we get a Female or Afircan American for president soon, just so I could see the faces that everybody would make and realize they could be better than our normal presidents.>

I don't understand the SUE SUE SUE mentality many Americans seem to have. I've heard of kids getting sued for hitting a baseball and accidentally hitting someone in the head. That is ridiculous. It was a freakin accident, why don't people just move on? The lady who was hit was lightly concussed and that was it. I've also heard about how you can get sued for giving CPR to someone who needed it, but didn't want it (ie a suicide attempt).

If you want to fix the problem of shoddy doctors etc, then stop privatising hospitals! Healthcare and educational facilities can't be run as businesses, because the first any business does it to try and cut costs, which sometimes works and usually reduces the quality of the service.

You should here the Compensation claims in England, these are all true!

A Man: "I put my finger in a light socket and lost the use of my left arm. I sued my company and got £500,000 compensation."

A Woman: "I tripped over my foot and sued for compensation. I was awarded £3000."

A stupid Man: "I ate a nail and became ill. I was awarded £100,000 compensation from the company that made the nails."

Dear me, I wonder what the communists would say to that. :rolleyes:
