    yeah I have to vote that thread be the nastiest thread on this board... I often go to asian food resturants for lunch, so these thoughts were neutralized from the beginning, but that damn picture is now stuck in my head.

    if you cannot speak a common language you can be telling everyone how to make lead into gold... but no one can understand you... and so it cannot matter.

    I would be much more interested in turning gold into lead! Then we could have an unlimited supply of lead.

    It's all about the protocol....
    just like Appletalke and TCP/IP don't work with one another...greek geek speak(l33t k1d5)....and english aren't kosher with one another..
    I'm sure I could have summed that up a lot better, but oh well.

    A quick tangent on this "dead thread".

    Grifter can relate to the local lingo we use here, in the community that is #ut2600 or even as small as just zzq. We use words taken from Something Awful's JeffK, #arstechnica and crazy stuff we make up...but not in conversation with people outside of this circle, because it's confusing, grammatically offensive and silly.

    Has anyone else witnessed this phenomenon?
