This grammar confuses me. Which is it!?!

The correct grammar would be, "Tupac and I."

Thank you! Now I'm enlightened.

An early predecessor of TWSS?

No, TWSS is an adaptation of "as the actress said to the bishop".

I'm aware of the antiquity of the actress and the bishop. However, I don't think it can be assumed that TWSS is a direct adaptation, and if it was, then the point still stands that this was probably one of the earlier instances.

Also, Three's Company references are sorely lacking in F/R/T.

TWSS is related to "the actress and the bishop," yes, but that in itself actually derives from early Roman humor. The first known form was "Your previous statement could also be interpreted sexually." This greatly confused the Romans, who did not speak English.

Good: I installed the new dishwasher by myself.

Bad: The crappy welder who did the crappy job of attaching a crappy nozzle to the existing sink plumbing should die, since the ENTIRE PIPE TORE IN MY HANDS WHILE UNHOOKING THE OLD DISHWASHER. Seriously, what was holding that f***ing thing on? Not only do I not have a dishwasher that works yet, I CAN'T USE THE DAMN SINKS.

I can't believe they removed it. The more I think about it, the more depressing it becomes. You're wrong about many things. The tone of your voice sounded like you know you're wrong. You have never impressed me as someone easily manipulated. I hope the city is treating you better than your tone sounds :( WOW, that was really poor. You certainly have NO cause for such venomous shite. Are you afraid of being shunned if you don't behave as they wish? You forget that I did a connect the dots a few years ago. The poke-a-dot made me laugh almost as much as the news article. Really? I thought you would've removed yourself from such nonsense. Beer is good.

I made the mistake of mentioning that I had pulled an all-nighter on thursday/friday to finish a report, on Facebook. Woke up this morning to a text from dad asking why.

*slaps self*

NEVER SAY ANYTHING ON FACEBOOK AGAIN! DAMN YOU, ME!

In fact, never mention anything to anyone. My network of half-truths and white lies is not a wholly durable one, and every little thing that risks my true identity (as a lazy, dumb idiot who doesn't deserve to be a student, as opposed to a lazy, but semi-intelligent person of worth) becoming known is to be squashed before it can be broadcast.

I'm not saying I'll go so far as to start secretly deading people left and right, like those dudes out of the Bourne movies. I'm not saying I won't do that, either. OR WILL I? No.

Also, that song is awesome.

Yeah. I used to listen to it whilst playing with this. Essentially it was a basic Sopranos Opening Titles Simulator.

I wonder if it would be better if you listened whilst playing GTA 4. Hmm.

It still doesn't. Google needs to do one of those indexing crawls it does* before it'll show.

*Is that how it works? I've literally no idea. I'm assuming from the term 'index crawl' that google's web-thingies just update something with all new webpages periodically and that's why stuff takes a while to turn up. I don't really care enough to find out, if someone on here could explain it in easy-to-use terms that would be fantastic.

I noticed one day on the freeway that almost every license plate started with either a 3, 4, or 5. Mostly 4. This is in California.

Both Tennessee and Ohio did when I lived in those states. Nebraska used to number its plates by county, with the most populous county (Douglas) being #1, second populous as 2, etc, but some of the counties have stopped that. Idaho does something similar. I'm sure Wikipedia has more examples.

FT: my chair is a piece of luh-suh. It has this lever that either locks it in sitting position, or allows the whole thing to recline. Nice and dandy, except the sitting-position lock tends to fail randomly, so when you sit back, it suddenly topples backwards. That's scary as fuck, and I swear I'm going to get a whiplash from it some day.
