Excessive Snarkiness

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Peter McFerrin, Mar 3, 2003.


  1. I've been in a really foul mood the last few days. Apologies to all I may have offended--I don't take back any of the sentiments I expressed, but the way I've put them across has been excessively bitchy.

    nothing oozes sincerity like an apology with caveats. :)
     
  3. It would be insincere if I said I didn't believe the things I said, but the way I stated them was pointlessly combative.

    I dunno Pete. I kinda like you better when you were fiesty! You're a bit blunt but I wouldn't describe you as rude.

    Just be yourself mate. That goes for everyone. Don't wear masks in here. You don't need it. We're all brothers, we all play BASS!

    I never noticed that you were excessively snarki. Excessively smug yes, snarki no.

    That's too funny - and I've learned a new word today!

    The possible mutations seem endless - snarkiferous, snarkilicious, snarkicistic, snarkometer, snarkedelphia...

    :D

    THE HUNTING OF THE SNARK!
    ...an Agony in Eight Fits


    by Lewis Carroll
    (aka Charles Lutwidge Dodgson)


    Fit the First

    THE LANDING

    "Just the place for a Snark!" the Bellman cried,
    As he landed his crew with care;
    Supporting each man on the top of the tide
    By a finger entwined in his hair.

    "Just the place for a Snark! I have said it twice:
    That alone should encourage the crew.
    Just the place for a Snark! I have said it thrice:
    What i tell you three times is true."

    etc.

    Hello, Peter.

    You mentioned a while back you were taking a course in LA economic history. Are you still taking the class?

    There was an interesting article in NBER here:
    http://papers.nber.org/papers/W9457

    Take care,

    RS
     
  17. That looks like it will be an excellent article--thanks for the link.

    BTW, I got a B+ in that class last semester. Right now, I'm taking a class on East Asian economic development.

    I'm trottin' the globe without leaving Ithaca... :D
     
  18. Hmmm, Snarktopia, Snarkinitis, Snarkocracy, Snarkinator, Snarkateria, 7 snark bass,.... endless permutations indeed!

    Vini! Vidi! Snarki! (I came! I saw! I snarked!)
