I was looking for an old thread last night and I happened to come across this little revelation. Maybe we can finally figure out what those blasted letters stand for!


My screen name is my name...followed by the first letters of each word in a particular four-word phrase, in Latin. Any guesses?

Rob wants you to believe that. The truth is he registered while on a bender. The eiae is a stutter caused by miles of Jack Daniels and a twisted arcane smile.

No, it is NOT a shout-out.

This is a serious matter for discussion. It's about Latin. And phrases. Phrases have to do with writing.

And it is a mystery for us to solve.


And besides, the mod, Silver King, is a close personal friend of mine. (raspberries)

I see so much apathy everywhere I go now. The uncaring attitudes of people in stores and in the workplace. I keep thinking of that Michael Douglas movie, what was it called, Falling Down? He gets sick and tired of attitudes and just goes around shooting everybody.

So, we have to somehow avoid letting the bastards get us down.
