I'm not British or from New Zealand.
Glad you mentioned it. Now I won't be jumping to any conclusions.Berislav said:That's nice. Neither am I.
Which one of us, Aphrodite?honestrosewater said:You'll always be a Mountain Man to me. Incidentally, I was born of the sea foam.
This is a trick, no? You did not say: "I'm not British or a kiwi," nor "I'm not from Britain or New Zealand." It could be you are not British because you are a nationalised New Zealander, but you are not "from" New Zealand because you were born in Britain.zoobyshoe said:I'm not British or from New Zealand.
zooby. I don't know what you are yet - I need a map. Croatia is somewhere in the middle, right?Berislav said:Which one of us, Aphrodite?
OK, OK. I was neither born in the UK nor in New Zealand. I am not now, nor have I ever been, a citizen of the UK or New Zealand. I do not now, nor have I ever, lived in the UK or New Zealand.El Hombre Invisible said:This is a trick, no? You did not say: "I'm not British or a kiwi," nor "I'm not from Britain or New Zealand."

I am a zoobie!honestrosewater said:zooby. I don't know what you are yet...
Something like that... It's east of Italy.I don't know what you are yet - I need a map. Croatia is somewhere in the middle, right?
Okay, okay, you are a zoobie - descendants of the Mountain Men and mountain goats.zoobyshoe said:I am a zoobie!
Goats? Are you high? I'm prolly some kind of post- simian, prehomonid kinda thing.honestrosewater said:Okay, okay, you are a zoobie - descendants of the Mountain Men and mountain goats.
I must be a strong gondolier then.Berislav is a gondolier who got lost and rowed across the sea.
Is anyone, really, from New Zealand?matthyaouw said:Incidently, I'm British, but also not from New Zealand
Here where? PF, or there, England?matthyaouw said:I'm not sure... Most people around here seem to be British. Funny, that.
zoobyshoe said:What are these "Mountain Men" you guys are talking about? (I know what goats and chipmunks are.)
Sounds like a zoobie to me...Mountain men were trappers and explorers that roamed the Rocky Mountains from about 1810 to the early 1840s. These were primarily beaver trappers but included some who mainly wanted to explore the West.
The stereotypical mountain man was depicted as a loner dressed in animal pelts, sporting bushy facial hair and carrying a muzzle loader and buck knife. Some mountain men were gruff, while others were well-mannered, however, they were romanticized as honorable men with their own chivalrous code who would help their brethren, but were more at home in the wild...
Well, that's what I thought a Mountain Man was too. (A trapper, not a zoobie) Hypatia, though, says she goes and visits one. Does that involve time travel, I wonder?honestrosewater said:Sounds like a zoobie to me...
You are still a young zooby. Plenty of time for that.zoobyshoe said:I have also never tried to smuggle a coconut out of Haiti.
Yeah, I'm only five.El Hombre Invisible said:You are still a young zooby. Plenty of time for that.
Nay. Nay. Nay. Nor am I in, from, or a citizen of Canada. In fact, I am not in, from, or a citizen of, any foreign country.El Hombre Invisible said:Are you from, in, or a citizen of Australia?
That would be a feat indeed. Well, the 'from' and 'citizen of' parts. Otherwise it would just be called 'travel'.zoobyshoe said:In fact, I am not in, from, or a citizen of, any foreign country.
It would take some kind of talent to accomplish.El Hombre Invisible said:That would be a feat indeed.
I'm discovered! I confess! I'm an American!Could it be...
that you are...
There are a lot of foxes in San Diego. I frequently go down to the beach to oogle them.El Hombre Invisible said:"He said that when he went to close the gate that night he heard a very low, very guttural voice say, 'Here chicky, chicky, chicky...'"
Could have been a fox pretending to be a zoobie?
Alas, fox-hunting is now banned here. [sniff] Still, there are more chicks around thanks to that.zoobyshoe said:There are a lot of foxes in San Diego. I frequently go down to the beach to oogle them.
Many chicks are foxes, and that is why zoobies volunteer to guard the hen house.El Hombre Invisible said:Alas, fox-hunting is now banned here. [sniff] Still, there are more chicks around thanks to that.
Actually, he said it twice. Just no-one was listening the first time. Anyway, reminds me of a fertility clinic I once saw... Hung out a huuuuge baby. Didn't work cos everyone thought it was Buddha. They spent so long throwing out dancing, singing men in orange tunics that they couldn't run the service. Eventually they just turned it into a temple. Don't know what they did with the sperm bank.hypatia said:Daniel Webster once said:
"Men hang out their signs indicative of their respective trades; shoemakers hang out a gigantic shoe; jewelers a monster watch, and the dentist hangs out a gold tooth; but in the mountains of New Hampshire, God Almighty has hung out a sign to show that there He makes men."
