Yes, . . . absolutely on the dictionary/thesaurus. Such tools can come in quite handy.

Don't get me wrong guys. I'm all for learning new things . . . . even if my ego is slightly bruised in the process.

Although I will readily concede that there are people here far more intelligent than I (hell you should see me without spell check), I think mostly it comes down to prior exposure and research.

I COULD make a better argument but that would mean spending 5 hours researching a post like some sort of grad student trying to earn a degree in pointlessness.

Ps. My first month here I had a chip on my shoulder for Chas after he hit me with one too many Drinking Beverage s. Then he toned it down and I learned how to chalk it up to 'get off my lawn syndrome.'

I believe you're the only person, ever, to react negatively to my posts. Drinking Beverage

Cannot speak for everybody, of course, but I believe in reciprocity. Being an asshole, I got no problem calling everybody else an asshole. Besides, I'm a spawn of Wormtown, that's just how we show affection and shit. You fucking fuck.

(And yeah, I do that IRL as well.)
