The amoeba. What aren't you a person? Are you just a conglomeration of monkey's typing in a room onto this board? Huh? Are you?! *pokes Twpsyn violently*

No, I am not a conglomeration of the typing of monkeys.

I AM THE VILLAGE IDIOT!

Does that require waving your penis at traffic or no?
And a shiny new donkey to whoever can tell me what that's a reference to. Or what the shiny new donkey is a reference to.

This reminds me of what happened during the introductory week at my faculty. One of the researchers showed some dias of his last arctic expedition, and one of them showed a fully grown polar bear. And the females in the room inmediately all started saying: "Awwwwww! How cuuuuuuute!!".

You know, I'm not sure wether, if I would suddenly stand in front of a fully grown polar bear somewhere in the Arctic, I would find it that cute.

I love otters. Unfortunately, the only ones I've ever seen were in aquaria* :cry:

*is that a hypercorrection? I don't think so, but it might be.

Nope. The dictionary itself lists "aquaria" as a legitimate plural for it, though I've never heard it myself.

The last board I was on, for the couple years before coming to the ZBB, was an aquarium-hobbyist forum. I have seen the word used far more often than most people do, and I'm prepared to say that on the whole, people use 'aquariums' 75 - 80% of the time and 'aquaria' 20 - 25% of the time. This is roughly in line with Google, which gives 1,730,000 hits for 'aquariums' and 676,000 for 'aquaria'

Interesting how words like aquarium work, with the plural the word should have because of the root language and the one everyone gives it. I'm sure we've all had run-ins with these at some point or another--with me, it was trying to find the proper plural for octopus (Growing up with a linguist has interesting side effects, doesn't it?).

By the way, loved the otters!

Frankly, I?m afraid that one day I?ll open this thread at work at breaktime, find someone has added a picture of otters copulating, and die of embarrassment. I almost did with the lion and tiger above.

Jar Jar, I think its time you know some of the things you could be promoting:

OTTER
A lean, often shorter guy that likes to hang out in the bear scene. Otters may be furry or smooth, but they are never chubby. This term isn't used as much now as it was ten years ago. In comparisons to the bear attitude, otters tend to have a very friendly, even mischievous, disposition and even though they aren't big and bear-ish, bears love them for their fun nature. Sometimes otter and cub may be used to describe the same person, and with the above definition, it's easy to see why.

So, does Spider have any meaning in the "club scene"?

Not that I know of, but you couldn't be sure that they'd be the unliked...

also, after rereading that definition, if I was into that scene I'D be an otter... heh
