How many limbs is ideal...? by shlong on 2000-07-24 05:14:13

Natures all twisted by teasing some creatures with a mere 4 limbs, whilst others have in excess of a hundred and some none. So how many is just right?

  How many limbs are ideal, ass-chicken! Were you never tought plurals? Anyway, seeing as all but the English are advanced, then 4 limbs (two in air, two on land) seems a good combo, but then humans can't lick their own butts like animals can. Which is good. So...4 Look at centipedes and millipedes and f*cking decipedes and all of those. The exoskeletoned b*stards! They'd never make it in the real world, they can't speak, can't add up, and their table manners are contemptible. I'm happy as a bi-ped, but quadrapeds are faster and have better balance. Arguments for bi-ped status R.E.M. Bob Dylan Most humans, really. Not Bill Clinton, though, or Hitler. Fool, he was. Had a good voice, mind. Good leader of men. Anyway, I digress. Arguments against bi-ped status CheetahsAl GoreCats of all kindsOtters Verdict? Bi-peds Rule!

  Your worms, your fish, your eels - they have none, and they seem as happy as clams. And what about those cephalopods? Just one foot, and it's really part of their head! Depends what you are trying to accomplish, I guess.

  That's actually a "false foot" or pseudopod.
You know, like pseudointelligent or pseudoliterate.

That would be Taught plurals - not Tought plurals, ass-monkey. Were you never taught spelling?

  Man, I've always been on such a spelling crackdown, you can't imagine how embarassed I am. I was never taught spelling as such, but pride myself thereon. And as for 'Ass-monkey', a guy makes a mistake, sorry for not censoring my every word, but one tiny oversight doesn't warrant an insult. I think it's high time you calm down sonny Jim, I've had about enough of your abuse, so get off your high horse and join the rest of the none-perfect world. Are you such a deity that you think for one tiny littl spelling error, one is rendered unworthy? That would be a sad, sad story..... Oh, and thanks for the pointer.....

There was absolutely no personal affront intended. I was simply mimicking your "style" (ref: ass-chicken in your original message). I was simply pointing out the irony you go on a tirade against someone for poor grammar and you misspell taught. I can imagine your embarrassment for having a spelling error in your verbal assault on someone for their grammar, I made a similar mistake and misspelled anthropomorphism J 

For someone who managed to use ass-chicken, f*cking decipedes, and exoskeletoned b*stards in one "thought" you seem a little overly offended by a satirical comment. By the way the "anthropomorphism" comment was also meant in jest.

And you are very welcome for the pointer . . . hopefully you can repay the favor with some grammar tips sometime . . . together we could probably write pretty well (or is it good?).

I have to run my 3 limbed dog needs to go use the facilities (the grass actually).

  I forgot a semicolon after the word IRONY in the first paragraph, and a comma after run in the last, my bad.....

  Yes, OK, so it's the second title in a row stolen directly from Blackadder, but anyway.... I saw call it quits. I'll ease up on the ass-monkey ad my tirades and even loosen up on my prissy spelling morals, if you grant a little leeway in long-ish comments. Not short ones, though. If someone can't spew one sentence out correctly, then I'll crack down.

  I'm not familiar with Blackladder so I had to use a Rodney King line. I think we have a deal. I wouldn't have even said anything ing the first place if you hadn't been so harsh on the grammar error. That was pretty funny though. One line comments are certainly fair game (so long a the "tirade" is spell checked).

  The problem is that you made a snarky reply to the wrong message. If this had been made as a reply to the first reply itself, rather than to the general topic, it would have been clearer. On the other hand, I know that people tend to make all their replies to the general topic, even though they're talking to each other, because it's easier to read. So basically it's the software's fault.
