This may be the coolest, most awesomest phrase ever uttered by human lips (or fingers). I'm totally adopting this as a new favorite phrase, if you don't mind, Polymath. To thou shalt all credit go.

Sorry guys, I'm picturing Margo summoning Polymath from a magic lamp, like a genie who grants grammar wishes.

You totally rock my socks, Polymath.

I can totally see that.

It's like we all have our own little personal version of Polymath. It's kinda neat.

Doubt it. If Polymath were Google, Blogger would be fixed by now.

Good point.
Unless, he came from the future, met himself and due to the whole timey-wimey wibbly-wobbly thing, blogger crashed because you can't meet your past self.

I don't know about the rest of you, but I know I wouldn't be shocked to discover Polymath is actually the digital personification of a sentient Google.

I think we need to rename this thread "The Awesomeness that is Polymath - A Tribute to our Personal Google."

You-all have managed to discover one of my fatal weaknesses, my Achilles' heel, my kryptonite, my deadly vice: my self-effacing need to be inconspicuous. Yeah, I know, kind of hard to be inconspicuous when one has a conspicuous attribute in some small regard. Don't we all? Making it meaningfully pay off, that's the ticket to the platinum tour.
