No No No . . . no one wants that :wacko:. Not that it will make any difference. Tom, you're a calculating sort and I suspect that the anecdotes will take off exponentially!!! (What do you think? Not nearly as smooth, huh?)

Bravo!! :D I say WELL DONE!
Seems we've found a common denominator, and I appreciate the reciprocation! :lol:

<I can't beLIEVE I didn't think of "difference"! :angry: grrrrr>

But, to sum up, we're still staying away from math anecdotes, right? Tales of hexadecimal just don't even APPROACH silly, (for all n from 1 to infinity)


Maybe I asked this before, but we have new blood now. Anyone remember 80s band the Meat Puppets? I think I'm seeing the guitarist's kid's band again tonight. The twerp is WAY too talented.

I'm much more gooder with numbers.


Well then maybe you (Janet) can provide some Maths (English as the English speak please!) as I am absolutely cr#p with numbers :lol:

And some days (or for you, Emily, somedays) you guys make my brain hurt. :blink:


Kind of obligatory with this thread :blink:


tried it w/ the left and could do it (I'm left-handed) but could not, as predicted, w/ the right. Did not try it ANTI clockwise.


I am a leftie also but either way my poor wee brain goes into meltdown :lol:


Just makes you SOUND smart if you use words like "glottals" and "aspirated fricatives" :lol:


Doesn't it just?
No idea what they are or do but they sound bloomin' marvellous :unsure:.............they sound like maybe something the cat would throw up :lol:

''What's wrong with your cat??''
''Oh she's only aspirated some fricatives again!!''



Nikkeigh, is that hat only available in the UK? would LOVE to get that for my wacky brother...


'Tis a US site m'dear.


AND a mind-numbing amount of excel spreadsheets. :lol:



:unsure: :unsure: ...scaring me.....don't say those words :unsure: ......



Oh, and HELLOOOOOOOOOOOO LYNNE !!!!!!!!! :D :D

Hey, Lynne! I've now shoved my way into this Tickle Me madness...I can't keep up half the time :rolleyes: .
So, I'm noticing a number of southpaws around here, which proves interesting. I'm VERY left-sided (hand, eye, ear, foot, you name it). Who else? I bet we all are, as lefties are the true nuts of any society. :P

LOL! Southpaws are the American slang for left handed people.

I think perhaps it originates from baseball. Leftie pitchers are called southpaws.......

Early ball fields were built so that home plate faced east. That way, the late afternoon sun wouldn't be in the batter's eyes, a dangerous situation when a baseball is thrown in your direction. The pitcher faced west, and if he was left-handed, the ball would be thrown with his south-sided hand--his "south paw". Thank you for that info, Dad (he's more than just a pretty face)! :lol:

Emily, I had never heard why lefties were called southpaws, that's great!

Carla, I checked your profile and found no birthdate listed. I couldn't tell if my hubby helped put you through college or not. It's safe to say that he helped make more than a few car payments at your dad's house.

If those are your kids, my dad was probably retired by the time your hubby started drinking beer! I was born in 1963. :)

LYNNE!!!! I hope you stick around!! You, too, Karen. We could use you guys to stir up some trouble around here!


Maths

Seriously, do you guys really put an s on math?

I think that Carla is also a 'leftie' or is it 'lefty'

Yep. I am pretty ambidexterous though ... is that spelled right? Most things I can do with either hand ... I am better at writing with my left hand, but am capable in a pinch to write something short with my right hand ... with practice, I would be able to use it pretty well.

and "italics is the new black" - ha! I don't know why - but half my post was in italics - and I could figure not how to amend it. :P

Well Emily...I can't figure my own self out (yes, I do like to use that slightly appalachian-sounding phrase aloud, in public :lol: )......I only EAT and BRUSH MY TEETH left handed......everything else in the entire world is done w/ left hand or foot. :huh:


tummy hurts, too much food last night. must go back to supine state. :lol:

Thankyou Karen & Emily for the 'southpaw' explanation!
Sounds cute...I like it :D

Seriously, do you guys really put an s on math?


Very seriously superfluous spelling


Well, that's easily explained ... you hold your glass of wine in your RIGHT hand while eating and brushing your teeth.


:lol: Perfect

:wacko: :wacko: This little fella is only to be used if you can drink wine from your right hand whilst eating/brushing teeth with your left.
As you (Emily) are a 'leftie' I know you can ;)

Factoring in that math anecdotes have been protested, perhaps we should just let this go for the remainder of the thread. In addition, I would hate to be the cause of any division amongst the ranks as I do so enjoy the banter. Plus . . . ow, ow, brain pain.

So, I'm noticing a number of southpaws around here, which proves interesting. I'm VERY left-sided (hand, eye, ear, foot, you name it). Who else? I bet we all are, as lefties are the true nuts of any society. :P


How are you left-eyed unless you are a pirate and wear an eye-patch? Ahoy there, Emily, are you a pirate?

I'm right-handed. My brother is a lefty and was the biggest practical joker in the family, although my whole family is nuts - comes from my mom's side. I had two uncles that tried to potty train a goat and he fell through the hole (waaaaaay back when they had outhouses).

If those are your kids, my dad was probably retired by the time your hubby started drinking beer! I was born in 1963. :)


You're a year older than we are . . . and he (the hubby) didn't wait until he was 21 to start drinking beer. Of course at that time, it probably wasn't the high end stuff like Miller Lite. :P
