    Wow, I've never seen an organization with unknowingly creating such a profane title.

    "A wider FAGS review of data sources and products is available in Review of data sources prepared for the Federation of Astronomical and Geophysical Data Analysis Services.Report by Graham Alcock, 2001"

    A report prepared by Graham Allcock??
    No surprise there, I guess..

    I guess when they teach english in Denmark they must not place a very strong emphasis on profanity.

    Its the Screen Actors Guild. The 'Film Actors Guild' is a spoof on it in the movie Team America: World Police.

    Astronomers are known for their ludeness in naming things, but this is a bit much... :tongue2:

    Ludeness?? Is that the same as lewdness?

    I was wondering about that too.

    Whoooo! A promotion! :approve:

    Well, its perfectly possible that you wouldn't have known that. Heck, I wouldn't expect most people to even know that SAG exists.

    I think it is perfectly obvious that I was alluding to the movie, especially with all those questions marks. Maybe I should have used a :rofl: or :tongue: or :biggrin: to make it a bit more obvious.

    Most of us haven't seen the movie.

    I would recommend it. I thought it was very funny!

    I'd never heard of it at all! In fact, I still don't know what it is, because I care so little about it, I won't even waste time googling it up! :cool:

    From what I heard of it, I don't think I want to see it.

    Oh well, you've heard at least one good review (from me!).

    Basically, if you can't take a joke, you won't like it. Otherwise, its as good as any other waste of two hours of your life.

    I try not to do that at all. I am often not receiving of crude humor, from someone who is not a close friend.
