    Haven't you haddock-asion to hear yourself grunt?

    ἁμαρτία--in English "hamartia"--is Aristotle's word for the fatal flaw that leads to a hero's downfall. It entails enormous narcissism and grandiosity, along with a determination to defeat and disgrace all enemies (and perceived enemies) and be recognized as the greatest person in the world. Sound like anyone you know?

    From CHERRY:
    I got myself out of the van and it was a good thing, too, because I was suffocating in there, but it was cold—screw that ‘pleasant forty degrees’ crap—and I wasn’t dressed for it. No coat, just a sweatshirt on.
    I leaned against the van cracking my knuckles, freezing my ass off and cussing under my breath; pissed in general and pissed at Steve and pissed at myself; the operative word being pissed.
    Extremely.

    If we spot the Hindenburg, will Nymtoc mistake it for a sea-mammal and cry, "Oh! The huge manatee!"

    When Drachen Jager is told things he doesn't believe, does he say, "That's a bunch abalone"?

    Given more spare time, wouldn't most of the users here just spend it playing with their dinghies and watching prawn?

    You're suggesting they would just bow out of this thread? Isn't that a little stern?

    If they did bow out, wouldn't that leave us rudderless?
