You can only respond to the question with another question?

Did I studder?

Can I go First?




Did you eat that? http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/new/8_22/7_4_17.gif (http://www.smileycentral.com/?partner=ZSzeb001_ZUxdm080YYUS)

Have to archive the first bazillion posts, kids.

Nymtoc made the last entry (in this thread, Part I) with:

How can you know anything if you don't ask?

Shirokirie
08-30-2012, 04:45 AM
Well, I thought that's what archives are for?

Drachen Jager
08-30-2012, 07:10 AM
Was that a question, or a creatively punctuated statement?

Matera the Mad
08-30-2012, 10:18 AM
You question the punctuation?

Nymtoc
08-30-2012, 10:28 AM
Is that better or worse than punctuating the question?

Shirokirie
08-30-2012, 01:04 PM
Since when was any sort of punctuation a bad thing?

me-a-monsteR
08-30-2012, 03:58 PM
Is this a grammar test?

Shirokirie
08-30-2012, 04:54 PM
What is this that you call... 'grammar'?

Lavern08
08-30-2012, 07:36 PM
Don't you live in your grandma's basement?

Shirokirie
08-30-2012, 08:01 PM
Is that a problem?

Drachen Jager
08-30-2012, 08:19 PM
That depends, how does your grandma feel about interrobangs?

alexaherself
08-30-2012, 10:01 PM
Does it depend on how many people are involved?

Drachen Jager
08-30-2012, 10:16 PM
Are you conflating interrobangs and some other sort of bang perhaps?

alexaherself
08-30-2012, 10:23 PM
What other kinds of bangs would belong in this thread?

Drachen Jager
08-30-2012, 10:43 PM
Well what kind of bang were you referring to, involving a group (one might even call it a 'gang') of people?

Shirokirie
08-31-2012, 01:34 AM
Don't they have some obscure sexual term for gatherings of that nature?

Drachen Jager
08-31-2012, 02:28 AM
Ahem... sorry I was distracted, did you say obscure or obscene?

Shirokirie
08-31-2012, 02:31 AM
Okay, can we continue this conversation without the potato?

Drachen Jager
08-31-2012, 02:42 AM
Did you think I was distracted by the potato?

Shirokirie
08-31-2012, 02:53 AM
I thought you were implying Orgy or Gangbang all along; were you?

Drachen Jager
08-31-2012, 03:23 AM
Do you think I have a dirty mind?

Nymtoc
08-31-2012, 03:32 AM
What does it matter what we think? Don't you know?

Drachen Jager
08-31-2012, 03:45 AM
How would I know, aren't these things all relative?

alexaherself
08-31-2012, 03:54 AM
Relative to whom?

Drachen Jager
08-31-2012, 06:59 AM
Since I was asking, wouldn't I be the 'whom' in question?

alexaherself
08-31-2012, 02:37 PM
Would you really want to be?

Shirokirie
08-31-2012, 04:06 PM
Of course he does! Right, Jager?

CDSinex
08-31-2012, 08:22 PM
There's a right, and left Jager?

Nymtoc
08-31-2012, 08:25 PM
Isn't it well known that there's a right and wrong Jager?

iLion
08-31-2012, 08:27 PM
Does this mean Jager is not a centrist?

Drachen Jager
08-31-2012, 08:52 PM
Can't I just be a realist?

CDSinex
08-31-2012, 09:07 PM
Don't we wish?

Drachen Jager
08-31-2012, 11:43 PM
Is that meant to be funny?

talkwrite
09-01-2012, 01:21 AM
Can't you feel the humor?

Drachen Jager
09-01-2012, 01:33 AM
Is humour felt or is it simply experienced?

Robbert
09-01-2012, 05:34 AM
Whether it is felt or expierenced is IMO down to personal perception, but how come there is no equivalent for Schadenfreude* in English?

* literally translated, laughing at someone else's expense, the most universal type of humour

Nymtoc
09-01-2012, 05:49 AM
Because English is una lenguaje débil with un piccolo vocabolario and has to emprunter aux other languages in order verständlich zu werden?

Drachen Jager
09-01-2012, 06:36 AM
Or, could it be because German language structure allows for the combining of words into compound words, whereas English keeps the words separate, therefore schadenfreude is literally schaden freude, with the space omitted due to the peculiarities of the language?

Nymtoc
09-01-2012, 07:28 AM
Are you saying that I can't order scrambledeggsandsausages?

Drachen Jager
09-01-2012, 07:31 AM
Wouldn't that be likely to confuse your server?

Shirokirie
09-01-2012, 07:44 AM
No, not unless you're using windows server 2000 or whatever it was called that featured MySQL... Do all servers feature MySQL anymore?

Drachen Jager
09-01-2012, 08:31 AM
Are you just taking the piss?

Matera the Mad
09-01-2012, 08:36 AM
Are you pissed off or pissed up?

CDSinex
09-01-2012, 08:48 AM
Psst, why is everyone whispering?

Robbert
09-01-2012, 02:23 PM
Whispering? Has anyone ever heard Drachen Jager whisper?

Drachen Jager
09-01-2012, 07:35 PM
Has anyone here ever heard any of the others here actually say anything?

alexaherself
09-01-2012, 08:15 PM
Who said that?

CDSinex
09-01-2012, 09:54 PM
Haven't we all said "that" at one time or another?

Drachen Jager
09-01-2012, 10:10 PM
Perhaps 'that' was only the beginning of a quote, and she was cut off suddenly?

alexaherself
09-01-2012, 11:45 PM
Is being cut off suddenly necessarily any worse than being cut off gradually?

Drachen Jager
09-02-2012, 12:09 AM
Why don't you ask Anne Boleyn?

alexaherself
09-02-2012, 01:11 AM
Would she answer?

Drachen Jager
09-02-2012, 01:54 AM
Wouldn't that depend on your ability to time-travel, and/or perform a successful seance?

Nymtoc
09-02-2012, 02:02 AM
Is there a medium in this forum?

CDSinex
09-02-2012, 03:30 AM
Didn't Marshall McLuhan say, the medium is the message?

Drachen Jager
09-02-2012, 06:33 AM
If a midget psychic escaped from jail would the headline read, "Small Medium at Large"?

Nymtoc
09-02-2012, 10:24 AM
Isn't that type of medium rare?

alexaherself
09-02-2012, 03:17 PM
Aren't most media quite rare, these days?

Drachen Jager
09-02-2012, 08:16 PM
Are you some sort of shut-in?

alexaherself
09-02-2012, 10:14 PM
Did you get out because they gave you time off for "good behavior"?

Drachen Jager
09-02-2012, 11:24 PM
Would you believe me if I said it was very good behaviour?

Nymtoc
09-02-2012, 11:31 PM
Doesn't "very good behaviour" have a very different meaning in DJ's lexicon from that in normal people's?

Drachen Jager
09-03-2012, 12:25 AM
What's the difference?

Nymtoc
09-03-2012, 01:59 AM
Shouldn't you know that better than anyone?

Drachen Jager
09-03-2012, 05:02 AM
Isn't that assuming I know what other people's lexicons contain?

Nymtoc
09-03-2012, 07:04 AM
Can't you find that out by putting the question on your Facebook page?

Drachen Jager
09-03-2012, 09:06 AM
Would anyone answer?

Nymtoc
09-03-2012, 12:13 PM
Wouldn't Mark Zuckerberg?

alexaherself
09-03-2012, 04:16 PM
Do you think he knows the password to his own Facebook account?

Drachen Jager
09-03-2012, 06:16 PM
Doesn't his name mean 'sugar mountain'?

Nymtoc
09-03-2012, 06:46 PM
Yes, but how does that help the plummeting value of his company's stock?

alexaherself
09-03-2012, 07:01 PM
Who said it to had to help - that was hyped up right from the start, wasn't it?

Drachen Jager
09-03-2012, 08:02 PM
Let's see, the guy's a billionaire for ripping off other people's work, being an insufferable bastard and refusing to share; Isn't that already the magic formula for success in the United States?

alexaherself
09-04-2012, 12:00 AM
Is the United States so different from many other countries, really, in this regard?

CDSinex
09-04-2012, 05:12 AM
Regard the wisdom of his words, and you will learn much.

me-a-monsteR
09-04-2012, 03:39 PM
What if the wisdom of his words is written in invisible ink?

alexaherself
09-04-2012, 07:21 PM
Will that really make any difference?

Drachen Jager
09-04-2012, 07:30 PM
Isn't all wisdom invisible until you discover the truth of it for yourself?

alexaherself
09-04-2012, 07:50 PM
Is that any easier than discovering the truth of it for someone else?

iLion
09-04-2012, 09:24 PM
In fact, doesn't it always seem easier to discover someone elses 'truth'?

Drachen Jager
09-04-2012, 10:18 PM
Isn't the path to true wisdom opening our eyes to our own truths?

CDSinex
09-04-2012, 10:33 PM
Perhaps, but wouldn't it be foolish to walk down a path with your eyes closed?

Drachen Jager
09-04-2012, 11:46 PM
Didn't you get the metaphor?

Nymtoc
09-04-2012, 11:54 PM
Did you send it by regular mail or UPS?

Drachen Jager
09-05-2012, 12:17 AM
Does your brain work at the speed of snail-mail?

Nymtoc
09-05-2012, 02:25 AM
No but isn't the beautiful, labyrinthine, mysterious and seemingly infinite spiral of a snail's shell a metaphor for my incredibly inventive mind?

Drachen Jager
09-05-2012, 02:46 AM
Is that be a sinistral or a dextral shell?

Nymtoc
09-05-2012, 02:57 AM
Doesn't that depend on whether you are looking at it directly or as a reflection?

Drachen Jager
09-05-2012, 05:06 AM
By that logic, does your left hand become your right hand in a mirror?

Nymtoc
09-05-2012, 09:20 AM
Wouldn't you then become confused as to whether you are right- or left-handed?

Robbert
09-05-2012, 01:23 PM
Would a person be less confused if he/she performed a headstand in front of the mirror?

me-a-monsteR
09-05-2012, 02:46 PM
Would that person's view be completely disrupted by tilting their world upside down?

Drachen Jager
09-05-2012, 07:23 PM
Wouldn't they fall off if you tipped their world upside-down?

iLion
09-05-2012, 08:18 PM
Isn't our world already upside down? Do we see the Chinese population falling off?

Drachen Jager
09-05-2012, 08:32 PM
Isn't it right-side up if you're actually IN China?

iLion
09-05-2012, 08:40 PM
"Right-side up? With such different views from our own, could they be "left-side up"?

Drachen Jager
09-05-2012, 09:27 PM
Aren't you thinking of the Europeans?

alexaherself
09-05-2012, 09:40 PM
That's better than the Europeans thinking of him, isn't it?

CDSinex
09-06-2012, 04:29 AM
Is it?

Drachen Jager
09-06-2012, 05:42 AM
Is that the shortest question you've ever asked?

Matera the Mad
09-06-2012, 07:22 AM
Huh?

Nymtoc
09-06-2012, 07:37 AM
Eh?

Drachen Jager
09-06-2012, 09:09 AM
Wouldn't, "I?", or if you wanted to be grammatically correct, "Am I?" be the shortest possible question?

Nymtoc
09-06-2012, 10:49 AM
O?

Robbert
09-06-2012, 12:49 PM
?

(to me this would be the shortest, yet ungrammatical, question)

alexaherself
09-06-2012, 01:46 PM
Why are you all so interested in brevity rather than in letting your questions run to their natural lengths?

Drachen Jager
09-06-2012, 07:29 PM
Isn't asking a bunch of ecclectic/nerdy/shut-in people why they do strange things rhetorical?

Nymtoc
09-06-2012, 07:43 PM
Is rhetoric catching?

Drachen Jager
09-06-2012, 08:11 PM
If you'd been watching the recent conventions you'd think so wouldn't you?

talkwrite
09-06-2012, 09:01 PM
Can we name it the " West Nile Rhetoric" ?

Drachen Jager
09-06-2012, 09:52 PM
Are you blaming this one on Africa too?

me-a-monsteR
09-07-2012, 03:12 PM
Why don't we just save time and blame everything on DJ?

Robbert
09-07-2012, 04:40 PM
Aren't you afraid he might become a write-off?

alexaherself
09-07-2012, 06:41 PM
Why would that necessarily be something to be afraid of?

Drachen Jager
09-07-2012, 07:04 PM
Is a write-off some sort of competition?

iLion
09-07-2012, 08:50 PM
Is this somehow related to writing off into the sunset?

Drachen Jager
09-07-2012, 08:58 PM
If your ship won't right, you should write your wright and assert your right to have him wright it right, right?

iLion
09-07-2012, 09:08 PM
If it sank because it just wouldn't right, would that require writing rites?

Nymtoc
09-07-2012, 09:24 PM
Would anything be left?

Drachen Jager
09-07-2012, 11:35 PM
Is it possible for there to be a right without a left?

Nymtoc
09-08-2012, 01:18 AM
Isn't there a right to vote without being left out?*

*Dang! I almost forgot about Republicans' attempts to suppress votes in the coming elections.

Drachen Jager
09-08-2012, 01:54 AM
If people were never left out of the vote, what would be the point in granting them that right?

Nymtoc
09-08-2012, 02:08 AM
Where do you get the idea that anybody grants rights?

Drachen Jager
09-08-2012, 03:14 AM
How else do you suppose rights come about?

Nymtoc
09-08-2012, 03:19 AM
Are they not inherent in every human being?

Drachen Jager
09-08-2012, 03:52 AM
Are you saying rights were magically created in the Big Bang, or perhaps when Cro-Magnons evolved into Homo-Erectus?

Nymtoc
09-08-2012, 04:05 AM
Are you being deliberately obtuse, or just contrary?

Drachen Jager
09-08-2012, 05:30 AM
How could rights possibly be an inherent property of the human condition?

Nymtoc
09-08-2012, 07:19 AM
Aren't rights in our DNA?

CDSinex
09-08-2012, 09:15 AM
If DNA determines handedness, wouldn't lefts be in the DNA of some of us?

alexaherself
09-08-2012, 02:34 PM
Are you trying to start a discussion about chirality?

Drachen Jager
09-08-2012, 07:42 PM
Didn't we already have that discussion and move on to whether rights are intrinsic or extrinsic to the human condition?

Nymtoc
09-08-2012, 10:32 PM
Couldn't we bring this conversation to an appropriate conclusion by using an electron microscope?

Drachen Jager
09-09-2012, 12:21 AM
Do rights exist on an atomic level?

talkwrite
09-09-2012, 12:28 AM
Are you telling me that our rights are microscopic?

Nymtoc
09-09-2012, 12:31 AM
Haven't you ever read Studies Surrounding Variable Invariables in Field Studies Involving Indeterminate L- vs. R- Subatomic Particles, by Stephen D. Quark?

alexaherself
09-09-2012, 12:33 AM
Did he write it during quiet moments minding the bar on Deep Space 9?

Drachen Jager
09-09-2012, 01:36 AM
Was this before or after the Cardassian war?

CDSinex
09-09-2012, 09:01 AM
Is that the war in which Legate Krim, the Cardassian, fought?

alexaherself
09-09-2012, 03:38 PM
Krim probably did no fighting at all: he was just some Cardassian official who once travelled to Terok Nor at some point during the occupation of Bajor - don't you think it might be a little more relevant to ask instead about Gul Dukat?

Drachen Jager
09-09-2012, 08:58 PM
Wait, are we talking about Kim Kardahsian now?

CDSinex
09-09-2012, 09:01 PM
Isn't it about Krim, the Cardassian after whom, I think, she was named?

Lavern08
09-10-2012, 12:47 AM
Wasn't her dad that attorney named Kardashian who was on the O.J. Dream Team?

Were they football players?

Didn't the lawyers "drop the ball" on that one?

Drachen Jager
09-10-2012, 01:51 AM
Which lawyers?

CDSinex
09-10-2012, 05:11 AM
Witches have lawyers?

Shirokirie
09-10-2012, 05:26 AM
Lawyers are witches?

Drachen Jager
09-10-2012, 06:15 AM
Which lawyers are witches?

Nymtoc
09-10-2012, 06:27 AM
Aren't they the ones that object too much?

Drachen Jager
09-10-2012, 07:30 AM
What subject do they object to?

Nymtoc
09-10-2012, 07:52 AM
Don't they object to objectionable subjects?

CDSinex
09-10-2012, 10:33 AM
Aren't their objections subject to judicial review?

Drachen Jager
09-10-2012, 10:35 AM
What if they object to the review?

Nymtoc
09-10-2012, 10:50 AM
Can't they claim that the judicial reviews of their objections were decided subjectively?

CDSinex
09-10-2012, 10:53 AM
If they object, wouldn't the judge have to inspect every aspect of the subject to detect which parts are correct and which are defects?

Drachen Jager
09-10-2012, 07:08 PM
Can one object to the subject of the suspect object?

alexaherself
09-10-2012, 07:10 PM
Or would that be the same as objecting to the suspect of the subject object?

iLion
09-10-2012, 08:54 PM
Can I reject this abject project about the subject of objects?

Shirokirie
09-10-2012, 08:55 PM
... what?

Drachen Jager
09-10-2012, 09:01 PM
Has the subject of objective subjects transcended from objective to subjective and subjected our objective friend to a loss of the subjugation of her wits?

Nymtoc
09-10-2012, 09:03 PM
Isn't the objective of this thread to inspect subjects and objects in order to detect misdirections and correct them effectively?

Drachen Jager
09-10-2012, 09:18 PM
Aren't you conflating innovative debate with the belated beration of reprobates?

iLion
09-10-2012, 09:40 PM
Sure, that's easy for you to say, isn' it?

Drachen Jager
09-10-2012, 10:30 PM
Isn't it easy for everyone?

Nymtoc
09-10-2012, 10:59 PM
How can you make such a generalization? Do you know everyone?

Drachen Jager
09-10-2012, 11:05 PM
Isn't that begging the question?

Do you take me for a beggar?

Yes, but can a duck bear the weight of all of that responsibility?

Drachen Jager
09-11-2012, 05:57 AM
Can't the duck bill platypus for expenses?

Isn't the logic of this thread getting scrambled?

09-11-2012, 10:18 AM
Are you trying to whitewash over your part in this shell game?

Are you suggesting that we evolve?

Drachen Jager
09-11-2012, 08:15 PM
Are you trying to say we've been beaten?

iLion
09-11-2012, 08:16 PM
I agree... can you tell that this conversation has just fried my brain?

Drachen Jager
09-11-2012, 08:27 PM
Isn't this just your brain on drugs?

iLion
09-11-2012, 08:36 PM
Aren't all brain chemicals types of drugs?

Drachen Jager
09-11-2012, 08:56 PM
What sort of dictionary are you using to define that?

iLion
09-11-2012, 09:02 PM
You don't have a copy of the Ebonian Swahili-Argentine dictionary?

CDSinex
09-11-2012, 09:18 PM
Which edition?

Drachen Jager
09-11-2012, 09:18 PM
Is that available from Amazon?

CDSinex
09-11-2012, 09:27 PM
Did you check?

Drachen Jager
09-11-2012, 09:52 PM
What should I check?

CDSinex
09-11-2012, 11:01 PM
Your coat?

Drachen Jager
09-11-2012, 11:14 PM
Do I have to tip?

alexaherself
09-11-2012, 11:51 PM
And what percentage?

Drachen Jager
09-11-2012, 11:55 PM
If the answer to my question is no, then that makes your question rather redundant, doesn't it?

alexaherself
09-11-2012, 11:56 PM
What if it does?

Nymtoc
09-12-2012, 12:23 AM
Has this thread finally become so meaningless that we should scrap it?

alexaherself
09-12-2012, 12:28 AM
What would we replace it with?

Nymtoc
09-12-2012, 12:30 AM
Why should it be replaced?

Drachen Jager
09-12-2012, 12:46 AM
What would you do with your days if you didn't have this thread, spend another ten minutes staring at blank manuscript pages that somehow fail to magically transform into brilliant writing without user input other than the occasional groan of existential anguish?

CDSinex
09-12-2012, 12:49 AM
Isn't that a little harsh?

Nymtoc
09-12-2012, 01:09 AM
Isn't DJ just using his own miserable experiences with writing and trying to shift them to another?

Drachen Jager
09-12-2012, 01:11 AM
Isn't that the only way to achieve publishing success?

Nymtoc
09-12-2012, 01:13 AM
What do you know about publishing success?*



*I guess this one IS a little harsh. ;)

Drachen Jager
09-12-2012, 02:14 AM
Haven't you read any published authors?

talkwrite
09-12-2012, 02:18 AM
Can you read this?

Nymtoc
09-12-2012, 05:54 AM
Read what?

CDSinex
09-12-2012, 10:22 AM
Are we supposed to read the posts here before answering them?

Nymtoc
09-12-2012, 10:28 AM
Does it make any difference whether we do or not?

Drachen Jager
09-12-2012, 07:15 PM
Perhaps it does for some more than others?

Nymtoc
09-12-2012, 07:51 PM
Who would those "some" be?

iLion
09-12-2012, 08:26 PM
Sum of B? Like the square of the length of the hypotenuse equals the sum of the squares of the lengths of the other two sides - and you're calling that 'B'? Do you think I know?

Drachen Jager
09-12-2012, 08:31 PM
Speaking of which, did you know that E=MC² is wrong?

iLion
09-12-2012, 08:41 PM
Don't you mean it "could" be wrong?

Drachen Jager
09-12-2012, 08:51 PM
Don't you know that if you use it to calculate the mass of a photon, you come up with an infinite result?

iLion
09-12-2012, 08:53 PM
Isn't that what Al had in mind?

Drachen Jager
09-12-2012, 09:13 PM
Wouldn't the mere presence of any object with infinite mass utterly destroy the fabric of the universe?

Nymtoc
09-12-2012, 10:54 PM
Couldn't we weave a new fabric?

Drachen Jager
09-12-2012, 10:55 PM
Humans have a tough time making pants that last more than a year, what makes you think we can re-weave the universe?

Nymtoc
09-12-2012, 10:58 PM
Wouldn't today's technology enable us to build a really big loom?

Drachen Jager
09-13-2012, 12:10 AM
Wouldn't it be too threatening, looming over us like that?

alexaherself
09-13-2012, 12:40 AM
It's more threatening than "unweaving the rainbow", isn't it?

Nymtoc
09-13-2012, 12:43 AM
Do you expect us to believe that you have tried to unweave a rainbow?

Drachen Jager
09-13-2012, 12:54 AM
Hasn't everyone?

talkwrite
09-13-2012, 03:32 AM
Did you wait until they were finished to make sure they weren't weaving instead of un-weaving?

alexaherself
09-13-2012, 03:54 AM
Who needs to wait for them to finish?

Drachen Jager
09-13-2012, 03:57 AM
Who are 'they'?

StephanieFox
09-13-2012, 04:29 AM
If you don't know who 'they' are how will you keep them from unweaving your personal rainbow?

CDSinex
09-13-2012, 04:54 AM
Isn't that the paradox that has confounded humankind for the last page and a half?

Drachen Jager
09-13-2012, 05:02 AM
Wait, if I can back up a question, aren't they supposed to be weaving the rainbow?

Nymtoc
09-13-2012, 05:35 AM
Since a rainbow is an optical and meteorological phenomenon caused by reflection of light in water droplets in Earth's atmosphere, resulting in a spectrum of light appearing in the sky, how can we possibly talk about weaving or unweaving it?

Drachen Jager
09-13-2012, 07:43 AM
Don't you mean refraction, not reflection?

Nymtoc
09-13-2012, 08:17 AM
Are you being refractory?

Drachen Jager
09-13-2012, 09:16 AM
After some reflection, are you sure that was what you wanted to say?

Nymtoc
09-13-2012, 09:20 AM
Don't these questions just reflect your determination to find something wrong with my writing?

Drachen Jager
09-13-2012, 09:41 AM
Hey, is it my fault what you see when you look in the mirror?

Nymtoc
09-13-2012, 09:51 AM
Doesn't my mirror always tell me who is the handsomest of all?

Drachen Jager
09-13-2012, 10:25 AM
If your mirror is telling you that, shouldn't you be looking behind the mirror, pulling out your bottle of meds and popping a few?

Nymtoc
09-13-2012, 02:42 PM
How did you know what I keep behind my mirror?

sprogspasser
09-13-2012, 07:42 PM
Your mirror told me. It told me it turns its back every time it has to reflect you.

Drachen Jager
09-13-2012, 08:18 PM
Is sprogsprasser unaware that you're supposed to answer each question with another question in this thread?

Nymtoc
09-13-2012, 08:20 PM
(Nice, sprogspasser, but every post in this thread has to be in the form of a question, for example: "Didn't your mirror tell me it turns its back every time it has to reflect you?" :D)

When did you start talking with my mirror?

Drachen Jager
09-13-2012, 08:37 PM
Does he has the same 'condition' you do Nymtoc?

Nymtoc
09-13-2012, 08:46 PM
What do you know about my "condition?"

iLion
09-13-2012, 08:53 PM
Your condition? Are you pregnant?

Drachen Jager
09-13-2012, 09:29 PM
Do pregnant people normally converse with inanimate objects?
