I suppose it depends on your interpretation of the Bible.

A kid I went to elementary school with just posted on facebook:

steak biscuit from bojangles is the bomb...only cost me a dollar too

On one hand, I'm glad he got a good deal. I'd have gotten that for lunch, if I had a Bojangles...but he's 25. Is he going to be calling stuff "the bomb" when he's 80?

Jan 7th 2012

Especially with things that are clearly rad or at best bodacious.

Jan 7th 2012

Sooner or later he'll grow up and become tubular.

Jan 7th 2012

Totally.

It's American. It's worthless before it even gets to the press.

Mar 9th 2012

Jealous that nobody cares what you guys call "snow" in your "provinces"?

Mar 9th 2012

At least there's a good chance ours will be spelled correctly, which an American dictionary can't guarantee.

Mar 9th 2012

I want to buy the dictionary, but first I'm saving up for a set of encyclopedias.

Mar 18th 2012

You guys know the word "copse"? It means, like, a clump of trees. Is that pronounced like several officers (cops)? Or the way one lives through a tragedy (copes)?

I think that it's hard to expand your vocabulary by reading only. You can't actually use the words if you can't say them.

Mar 18th 2012

It's like "cops".

You can't actually use the words if you can't say them.

Write more.

Mar 19th 2012

I've actually heard it said like "copes" more often. Maybe it's a regional tomato/tomahto kind of thing.

Mar 19th 2012

Yeah, I thought it was "copes" as well, but the online dictionaries tell me I am wrong again. Fuck those guys.

Mar 19th 2012

I pronounce it "clump of trees".

Mar 19th 2012

I thought it was pronouncedcahpse, but I'm pretty sure I've never referred to a clump of trees. Why would I?

Mar 19th 2012

Well, you'll need to sound smart when you tell the cops the corpses are in the copse.

Bri always buries his victims in a swamp.

Mar 19th 2012

Not a good idea...the acid will preserve the bodies for centuries.

Mar 19th 2012

Well, you know, it's Bri so....

Mar 19th 2012

Bri always buries his victims in a swamp.

I read "burns." That'd be good, too. The fire wouldn't spread so much, you know?

the acid will preserve the bodies for centuries.

Wouldn't it also burn off the fingerprints?

Mar 20th 2012

So, uh...what?

Mar 20th 2012

You know, your collection of bodies. Where do you keep them, store 'em, burn 'em?

Mar 20th 2012 edited

Do you own a chest freezer, Bri?

Mar 20th 2012

Or a head freezer?

Mar 22nd 2012

And you guys were trying to pin that on me? Now who do we know who has ties to Cornell? Hmmm.....

Mar 22nd 2012

So many suspects.....

Mar 22nd 2012

Dammit! Now I gotta find a new lake.

Mar 27th 2012

How is Galileo Galilei's last name pronounced? I'm pretty sure it isn't the same as Galilee, you know, as in "Jesus of..."

Mar 27th 2012

"...Nazareth"?

I think it's gal-ill-lay-ee.
