My basic assumption is that we're all going to come across as idiots and hypocrites, and I'm okay with that. 8-)

Did you at least mention my excellent spelling? Mwah ha ha ha haaaaaa....

(I had to look up "hypocrites". Even though I know there's no horse in it anywhere, I was still going to spell it "hippocrites".)

I saw hippo crates outside the Barnum and Bailey Circus years ago. Then I was told crates were a type of snake, so i don't know what I saw.

Acronyms don't follow normal spelling conventions. Sometimes they don't even follow normal acronym conventions: http://calvinandhobbes.wikia.com/wiki/G.R.O.S.S.

You may quote anything I have publicly posted on these public boards. If I don't like it, I will be miffed and it really won't matter because this is the internet anyway. I supposed I could say "publish and be darned" but I'm probably going to be too lazy to darn anything so...yeah. :thumbsup:


Thanks very much - off the top of my head, I know you are mentioning dolphins with lasers on their heads in it somewhere


I thought it was with lasers in their heads, but then... :mrgreen:

Hey! If I'm quoted by "name" can I go around saying I was cited in a scientific paper?

Or does it only count if it's the name on my driver's license? :pr:
