    Is that a psychic, preemptive response to a post he hasnt even made yet?

    It's also somewhat ironic given he probably found that particular myth on some random weblink.

    Anyway. In Greek, the translation was for a specific type of wormwood (the type that makes absinthe - named from the Greek Apsinthos or something (I'm sure otto can clarify the exact term) which means 'bitter'). Chornobyl refers to mugwort, which isn't the same thing.

    Dodgy translation + conspiracy theory/religious nutters = 2 + 2 = 5

    Well I learned today, don't have foursomes with teenage Swedish female porn stars if you don't want to get stains on the upholstery of your Ferrari. Damn those bitches, I really need to learn not to turn women on so much with my charisma and sex appeal and that.

    haha!

    I think the important message for the forum to take away from this whole discussion is: who cares?

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    What does the Greek language have to do with what I said. I also made no mention of conspiracy theories or religious nutter theories.

    Yeah, what does Greek have to do with translation problems in the New Testament? Stupid Greek good for nothings.

    Don't shag a work collegue then her best friend the day after when they both work in the same room as you and expecet it to be all hunky dorey the next working day.

    It's been a tense morning.

    It's an odd one, we all went out on Friday night and I accidently drunkenly slept with the best friedn of the woman I had a planned a date with the following day. Of course I todl her about it on the date, she was fine with it and shrugged it off as a inebriated mistake, but now I'm starting to understand fully the phrase "If looks could kill...."

    Pah.... hopefully they'll have a bikini mud fight to death before the day is out. Expect pics.

    I envy your life. I can't remember the last time I slept with 2 different woman 2 nights in a row.

    FML.
    It's not all bells and whistles, there /are/ consequences. At this rate I might not end up with anyone if I keep on making these self destructive mistakes. :/

    I should know better really, office romances are always doomed. On the bright side the best friend is going home to Canada on Tbursday for 2 weeks and the other one has her son over from the States for Spring break. So hopefully I wont have to deal with it for a few weeks. My chances of doing anything with them again are completely scuppered though. :((

    FML

    Best thing to do in that situation is sleep with their younger and prettier colleague.

    Carphone Warehouse are rather lax when exchanging a faulty phone for a new one.

    @mowgli Presumably that's where Gill Sans came from after he stuck it up the dog one time too many and his wife chopped it off.

    I was looking for this thread the other day, when I learned to my surprise that snails scream when you pick them up. I wonder how I managed to get through my own childhood without learning this.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    I only just found out about the giant hexagons on Saturn's poles. How did I miss that?

    London with its population of over 8 mil is not an actual city, while the City of London with a population of around 7,000 is.

    Apparently.

    Is that because of the cathedral? If so that's not relevant these days.

    Come and get it cumslingers!

    There are more people in London than the whole of Wales. Not the "City of London", obviously, coz that would be silly.

    You can kill Anna Navarra (sp?) on the terrorist plane in Deus Ex. I did not know this.

    There's no indication you can do it. But if you do, the terrorist leader chap will keep talking and you get some other different reactions. What a game!
