    Lingo never fails to confuse me..

    By all means, the mean of men don't mean to be mean by living outside of their means.

    means-method
    mean-average
    mean-intend
    mean-evil
    means-wealth

    Yes, I thought of that myself

    I thought I was writing mean the wrong way, since it is written the same way as all the other means, but apparently it was right..

    By no means!

    You tell me what this mean means and I will tell you what you are:
    "The mean was drowned by your unruly base."

    *PHUH!*

    Ok, I'll give the answer away, the meaning is:

    \Mean\: (Mus.) A part, whether alto or tenor, intermediate between the soprano and base; a middle part. [Obs.]

    Well, that's as clear as MUD!!
    So, what are you saying? IR a 'middle part'? (you SAID you'd tell me what IR...) or maybe IR an 'unruly base'?
    (I'M SO CONFUSED!)

    ROTFLOL, well, it happens

    For the record, this "well, ir sajin dat ur tuh zeem ass ir"
    means: well, I am saying that you are the same as I am.

    All of a sudden that comment makes sense too

    Whit, iota = small matter. You refered to yourself as "whity" i.e. "of or having to do with a thing of no consequence." That's where Tsunami got "iota".

    I thought that if someone had whit, they were smart hard working and had good insight

    Again something learned today.. [b(]

    I think you mean "wit" rather than "whit".

    Whit is not Wit. Orthographic confusion leads to homophonic disorientation. To find east, linguistically speaking, look in the dictionary.

    *sigh* I probably did, didn't I?

    Would you mind if from now on I just start posting everything in Dutch? There is a translation service called Babelfish, just download the toolbar.. it will allow you to translate everything I post. Thanks.
