But if your only two options are do something or not do something, and you don't decide, you've decided because not deciding is the same as deciding not to, so in such a case it's not possible to not decide.


How's your headache now?
Heisenberg demonstrated that the K3 is both bought and un-bought until a conscious sober observer looks at the credit card balance.

Now, that is just obnoxious!

Well, at least you should say something bad about the thing. Our some other thing. We should be careful not to appear to make too much sense here. Really.

So by buying one you already nullified your "I won't buy one" statement... you are not welcomed on this thread any longer

Well, it sort of qualifies. But then again it's just obnoxious. I'm all with mrNewt!

Now, any favourite coffee? Cheese? Last chance!

I like eggs. And words spelled without unnecessary "U"s... like Favorite, Color, Honor

Ah, now we're getting there!

The English language... A pidgin language without any form of consistency or logic, an anachronism in the world of linguistics. Why on earth shouldn't we try to write it out in its full splendid madness without the odd cosmetic change?

Yay!

Exactly!

What happened to the idea that one letter maps to one sound and one sound to one letter? You know, the thing that's supposed to make alphabets useful. Yes, there are only 26 letters in the English alphabet, and something like 40 phonemes, but why on earth then create so many representations of each phoneme? f = ff = fe = ffe = ph = pph = gh? r = rr = wr = rh = rrh = re?? And I won't even start to touch the vowels...

And yes, I believe it's even worse for those of us not having this as our mother tongue. Yikes, even a couple of vowels there representing no sound at all!

Oh, and a correction: A pidgin language once it becomes someone's mother tongue becomes a creole, doesn't it?

How ever did this end up being the lingua franca of the world?

Lots of rich people speak it, and much of the rest of the world wants to hang with rich people.

I suspect the British navy might have had something to do with it as well...
