Re: Plural of white dwarf.

It comes from Old English "dweorh". Does anyone know which declension that is to form the plural?

Re: Age

I am now 18, I have only just got around to updating this thread, even though it isn't hugely important.... I remember using floppy disks when I was reasonably young (I liked computers as soon as I got to use them). I remember 56k dial up internet fondly where my mum paid 1 penny per minute so I ha...

Re: Childhood misconceptions

Rd God made Eve from Adam's rib, therefore girls have one more rib than boys. I never got on cop shows why they couldn't tell if the skeleton was from a guy or a girl, just count the ribs! XD This is actually really common. Like, to the point that I've met adults who think this. Yeah, I thought that...

Re: I Shouldn't Have To Say This

-Yes, I *am* over 12. So that's why I payed the adult/teen admission price. You do realize that I am taller than you? :roll: (this happened last week) -No, I am *not* the same age as your younger brother! In fact I'm 7 years older than you. Yes I am. Yes I am. No, it's not "impossible". -T...

Re: Age

e Simpsons first aired on the Tracy Ulman show on April 19, 1987 and got their own show which began airing on December 17, 1989 So, 22 or 19, almost 20 depending on where you start counting I don't get it. You're saying that you consider everyone born before 1989 part of your generation, but everyo...

Re: Age

Listen. I don't care how other people define it, but if you're younger than the Simpsons, we are not the same generation. I've heard of that show. How old are the Simpsons? The real question is if I'm Y or Z. Z is generally defined as living with things like the internet their entire lives. Because...

Re: Childhood misconceptions

Me too, because I had to edit these .bat files quite early. I was quite frustated at not understanding .exe files. I tried doing that, and then was surprised that the open source program then became unrunnable. (Because most text editors add the CR and/or LF. Luckily I discovered the Hex Editor pro...
