Hmmm, an incomplete idiot is one half of a whole idiot?

Which book actually begins: "it was a dark and stormy night"?

My next one. :D Okay. No. It's Edward Bulwer-Lytton's Paul Clifford.

This is the full opening...
It was a dark and stormy night; the rain fell in torrents—except at occasional intervals, when it was checked by a violent gust of wind which swept up the streets (for it is in London that our scene lies), rattling along the housetops, and fiercely agitating the scanty flame of the lamps that struggled against the darkness.

I finally popped into this thread for the first time and I gotta say, y'all have cracked me up!!

Watcher: Chipotle. Chipotle chipotle chipotle. It give me no problems. Of course, the word originated with the Native Americans down here in the southwest and it sounds a lot like Spanish which is spoken here more than English sometimes. I grew up hearing words like that. I think it sounds sexy. :)

I forget who said it, but I agree that oysters were a totally more weird thing to decide to eat - especially raw - than eggs. Oysters look like congealed snot and smell even worse. Why would you decide to swallow it whole?!

And for my own contribution: I often wonder if pets - especially cats - can understand their humans. I have two cats and I swear they understand me. My husband and I will be talking and mention one of them and they show up. We say something positive, they act cute. Something negative and they glare at us. We've even experimented with saying positive things in a negative tone and vice versa - they still respond to the words rather than the tone. (This doesn't work for dogs. I scratch my sister's dog and say "You're such a stupid doggie, aren'tcha?" in a happy talking-to-pet voice and she wags her tail like I told her she was the best dog in the world. My sister hates it when I do that. :P )

I wonder that too. My cats definitely know their names, or in my kitten's case, his nickname (which is shithead because he is one)

I laughed so hard at this. I adopted a stray two years ago and named her Twerp (that's her below). People think it's cute and funny until they meet her, then they realize "OMG SHE IS SUCH A TWERP!"

But anyways, she knows her name and all of her nicknames. It's the cutest thing ever to see her tail twitch when we say hello to her.

Dogs forget things after 5 minutes. Cats remember things for up to 16 hours, so if you p-off your cat you might wanna steer clear for the rest of the day. I'm not saying cats are vindictive but they will get you back - oh wait, I guess am saying....

I'm a dog person. The only thing I wonder about concerning cats is, 'Do they taste like chicken.' My wife won't let me test this on any of hers/ours.

The way I tasted heard it, dog taste like chicken and chicken tastes like cat. Of course I wouldn't know, never having tasted chicken and all.

Don't you remember? Everything tastes like chicken because the Matrix can't program tastes.

Is that real binary? I totally wouldn't be surprised if you'd translated something malicious into binary as a subliminal message to help you take over the Bransforums or something, Watcher. :)
