A good dump is as satisfying as the mean feed that preceded it.

I learned today that notwithstanding the fact that this thread could conceivably encompass certain concomitant benefits of a marginal and peripheral relevance, there is a consideration of infinitely superior magnitude involving your personal complicity and corroborative malfeasance, with the consequence that the taint and stigma of your former associations and diversions could irredeemably and irretrievably invalidate your position and culminate in public revelations and recriminations of a profoundly embarrassing and ultimately indefensible manner. See?;)

Yesterday I learnt 15 year olds no everything and as we get older we forget it all apparently.

Today I learnt having house guests is a pain in the butt as the spare room is the office and I'm stuck in my workshop

Those trapped in a rut with their spelling will never see fresh literary constructions flowing from their pen. Words should, like fingerprints and signatures, be infinitely varied.

Yesterday I learnt 15 year olds no everything...Does this mean they "know" everything or they "deny" everything? :o

Today I leaned that the phrase "hop-think" has not reached enough people to be considered common vernacular, It merely gets you queer looks.

I look foward to learning whether I have mis-used the term common vernacular, or whether or not I have used the correct wether.

I should ask my son, He knows everything and is just 5 years old.

Is queer looks like gay looks?

...that trying to sing a song one has never heard before, several bars behind, at the same time as listening to it on the stereo, is a brilliant way to benchmark one's short-term memory capacity :D.

... to be patient when selling things on trademe and waiting for the buyers to contact me.

Sold a stonking great 61 inch tv on Thursday afternoon and the buyer waited until just a couple hours ago to contact me.

Also, 61 inch rear-projection tv's are only worth $67. Damn you, $1 no reserve!

I learnt Win7 64bit is picky about dialup modems.
Well not today exactly.
Not just some, but even one's where it recognises them ok don't work properly.

That the phrase terrible-two's is completely inaccurate. It should be known as the terrible 18-month plus. :rolleyes:
