Are you calling Lorcan a bitch?


#3595

His preferred adjective is asshole.


#3596

Here I’ve been calling him fuckwit all this time. Thanks for correcting me Will.


#3597

She clearly gave her gender expression.

I mean, you could have just asked. It’s polite.


#3598

What a coincidence, that’s what we call you as well.


#3599

After reading this graphic novel, I’d be leading the riots!

(It’s quite the tear jerker).

Who’s Laika?


#3601

Nobody. She was quite unique.


#3602

My high school English teacher would deduct 5 points from your grade for putting a qualifier in front of “unique”.

Lucky for you, she died.


#3603

Are you sure she’s dead? Did you see the body?


#3604

Well then maybe she should’ve put more qualifiers in front of “unique”… sounds healthier…


#3605

Your teacher may have been correct in US English but I defer to Fowler for British English:

The adverbs that unique can tolerate are e.g. quite, almost, nearly, really, surely, perhaps, absolutely, or in some respects

(Fowler 1926; I use the second edition revised by Gowers 1965)

I suspect it’s all a stylistic choice. :smile:


#3607

I think there should be fewer reliance on stylistic choices in writing.


#3608

Heh.

When I was in grade school I would read books about space exploration written for children.

When it came to Laika, a couple of the books said that she was recovered safely, a couple said she was euthanized humanely, and others skirted the issue.

I always figured the ones that said she made it back to Terra Firma safely were lying.


#3609

She flew straight to doggy heaven.


#3610

Y’all should read Manhattan Projects.


#3611

Shadowcat is calling out Starlord!


#3612

That dog Laika died for the benefit of floating in zero gravity space.

On the other hand:

There have been a lot rumors about creepy goings on at that Hillsong church on the Hollywood gossip/blind item sites.
