    to eat so. out #18

    At last our thread is of age and can now join in with what we've been talking about for the last 5000+ entries.
    The Hebrew word for "life" is חי (chai), which has a numerical value of 18. Consequently, the custom has arisen in Jewish circles to give donations and monetary gifts in multiples of 18 as an expression of blessing for long life.
    In Judaism, in the Talmud; Pirkei Avot (5:25), Rabbi Yehudah ben Teime gives the age of 18 as the appropriate age to get married ("Ben shmonah esra lechupah", at eighteen years old to the Chupah (marriage canopy)). (See Coming of age, Age of majority).
    Joseph Heller's novel Catch-22 was originally named Catch-18 because of the Hebrew meaning of the number, but was amended to the published title to avoid confusion with another war novel, Mila 18.[1]
    There are 18 chapters in the Bhagavad Gita, which is contained in the Mahabharata, which has 18 books. The Kurukshetra War which the epic depicts, is between 18 armies (11 on the Kuru side, 7 on the Pandava),
    In Chinese tradition, the number 18, normally 十八 (shí bā), can also be read as 幺八 (yāo bā), which sounds like 要发 (yào fā), meaning that one is going to prosper. Thus, building floors numbered "18" are often very expensive in China

    Eighteen is also the age in many countries at which a person may appear in a pornographic video, or express legal consent to sexual relations with another.

    In addition, eighteen year-olds in the United States have the right to bear arms, own property, marry without parental consent, get an abortion, donate their body to science, and serve on a jury. With these new privileges come responsibility: eighteen year-olds are tried as adults in court.

    In the Chinese mythos, Hell has 18 levels

    Thank you very much for this nice new thread..

    But they aren't allowed alcohol until they're 21..

    America! America! God shed His grace on thee,
    And crown thy good with brotherhood, from sea to shining sea.

    So Wari, I get to go home again, it's been a peaceful day (at work) and I've enjoyed it. Enjoy Heroes tonight and maybe someday the little Japanese fella will get round to saving the cheerleader to save the world - before we all get old.
    Till the morn.

    G'day people a very happy thursday to one and all. Hi OWL, nice to see that you've survived carneval as well. It must be years of hard training that makes you accepted and loved for what you are today.*fg*. Wari, no I didn't really watch ,but "save the cheerleader, save the world" was the closing scipt in the look foreward to what's coming bit at the end. And ? Has he saved the cheerleader and the world or will it take a few more months at the snails pace in which it's moving ?
    #5Authormyklausunna (236435) 21 Feb 08, 07:10
    OWL, nice to see you! no comment on your comment, though. ;)

    Mykl.. they saved the cheerleader, but still have difficulties saving the world. Yesterdays episode was set 5 years in the future and in that very future, they didn't make it.. So Hiro went back in time (his specialty) and tries again..hopefully he now knows what to do.. 3 episodes left to the end of season 1. One next week and a double feature on March 5th. I'm really excited.. It's been a long time I've been so touched by an TV series like that..

    Moin, Moin!
    #6Author Waringham (384862) 21 Feb 08, 08:29
    Hi Wari, then I'll wait for the double and see how it all turns out.
    #7Authormyklausunna (236435) 21 Feb 08, 08:34
    As far as I know this series, it won't turn out. There's a 2nd season...
    #8Author Waringham (384862) 21 Feb 08, 09:03
    Damn, then it's off to Amazon (at some time). I refuse to plan my life (on wednesdays) around a TV series and I'm not going to buy a DVD recorder either. So, if I wan't to see it I'll have to buy it, or hopefully/maybe borrow it from the library when I'm in England in june.

    So that's why I couldn't sleep tonight.. hasn't there been a "moon eclipse" tonight?
    #11Author Waringham (384862) 21 Feb 08, 11:01
    I thought the eclipse was this (thursday) evening, but I wasn't following the report very closely. It doesn't matter though, there's another one in 2011.

    Moin, mykl.. Have a happy Monday morning, too! Any chaos to be spread today?
    #30Author Waringham (384862) 25 Feb 08, 11:08
    Hi Wari, I wish you hadn't asked that *sigh* Yes, there is chaos here today, it's not my fault and it's a new one that we haven't seen as yet. Not that it has a lot of effect on my working day (yet), 'cause we've got no way around the problem (at my level) and the different software specialists are busily getting nowhere (at full speed).I'm becoming somewhat hardened to all these problems and with a little bit of (don't give a sh*t) attitude the day bumbles along much the same.
    #31Authormyklausunna (236435) 25 Feb 08, 11:15
    Sorry for having asked.. But I think your "don't give a sh*t" -attitude will help a lot. As long as it's not your fault.. :)
    When you get bored, you can still go and smoke on the toilet again.. sun is shining..would be good to be outside *fg*
    #32Author Waringham (384862) 25 Feb 08, 11:24
    I would never be stupid enough to smoke anywhere in the buildings here. There are thousands of smoke detectors scattered around and smoking in the toilets would mean an instant dismissal.We#ve had over the years here four pairs fired for having sex in the toilets, it's not that it's not allowed just that the people involved didn't book themselves "away from work". Theft of time.
    #33Authormyklausunna (236435) 25 Feb 08, 11:35
    OmG! *gg*
    So if you book out for a break and than have sex on the toilet, it's okay?! Very strange..
    So you should avoid thinking to hard until your head smokes, too...
    #34Author Waringham (384862) 25 Feb 08, 11:41
    You can do what you like (within reason) in your break, as long as you are correctly booked away from work *fg*. It's a brisk 4 min. walk to the nearest bit of outside from where I am and I only have one half hour break a day. I suppose I could take more (work permitting), but that just means less booked hours on my time sheet.
    #35Authormyklausunna (236435) 25 Feb 08, 11:46
    But you can always come here..soak in the Jacuzzis with two beautiful fully grown crocs.. Watch the money-tree bloom.. Enjoy a nice chat with whoever is here... *hugmykl*

    Hi Wari, I didn't see you come back in. *sigh* Tell me about it ! As if I didn't know about having software problems *ggg*
    By the way, yesterdays software problem was a hardware problem, ahhhh it does the soul good to be able to throw the accusations (of the technical dept.) back in their faces.
    #51Authormyklausunna (236435) 26 Feb 08, 14:15
    Each software is just as good as the one who wrote it..
    True or false?
    #52Author Waringham (384862) 26 Feb 08, 14:34
    Too true. Computers don't make mistakes (not 100% true, but close enough) programmers do.
    #53Authormyklausunna (236435) 26 Feb 08, 14:45
    And then, there are fu$%&ing proxies..again and again and again..

    Can you give me some Dos-advice? I don't have a special question at the moment, just would like to learn a bit more about it, as our main DV program is (still) Dos-based..
    #54Author Waringham (384862) 26 Feb 08, 15:21
    ME ? I can just about find my way around the DOS levels, but for questions I've got a couple of profis here (well 1 'cause the other one is on holiday till next week)
    #55Authormyklausunna (236435) 26 Feb 08, 15:23
    Ok..I just thought you could.. it's not important anyway..
    #56Author Waringham (384862) 26 Feb 08, 15:51
    Not my strong point. I need to know enough of DOS, Multi-user DOS, Windows (NT & 98 & Millenium) and Unix to know when they aren`t doing their jobs properly (running everything here) or when they aren't co-operating with each other - to inform the right people to fix it. When I need it I've a analytical mind with enough of a twist to see things from angles that others don't. I need to be able to spot failures/failings even if no problem is shown by justifying that if a, b, and/or c happens then it is because x or y or z aren't working or working correctly. For programming and the such like we've got an in-house programmer, who sits behind me and is my (little) boss.
    #57Authormyklausunna (236435) 26 Feb 08, 16:01
    To see a problem where there is none.. That's why everybody loves you so much... :)
    #58Author Waringham (384862) 26 Feb 08, 16:06
    Where none is shown ! Yes, my work mates and I are well loved by everybody *ggg* 'cause we phone up out of the blue and say that x, y, and z aren't doing what they are supposed to do - why ? As long as we can justify that what we say is correct then we are earning our money here by keeping things moving and detecting small problems before they become major ones *chuckle* That doesn't mean that everybody believes us, but no one can afford to ignore us. Anyway enough for today, I get to go home again. Oh, did you see the new pilot film for the series yesterday on Pro 7 , I thought it would be right down your street.
    #59Authormyklausunna (236435) 26 Feb 08, 16:14
    *chuckle* I'm not really anything more than a Fach-idiot, highly trained to do that what I do, but no use to any other bugger on the planet.

    Hallo ihrs alle, hab euch geradezu vermisst. Bin so busy...

    some random stuff, der meinen Gesiteszustand widerspiegelt:
    1.) Habe mir von einer Dohle die Lippe blutig beißen lassen
    2.) Habe jetzt schon mehrfach DSDS geguckt
    3.) Habe Barbara Salisch geguckt
    4.) Habe mich auf Diät gesetzt. In einer Lernphase! Sod the diet! Will Schokolade!!!
    5.) Habe zweieinhalb Stunden lang im Internet nach einem Lied gesucht, dass ich im Sommer in England einmal halb im Radio gehört habe und total geil fand. Und seitdem wissen wollte, was es ist. Wußte nur noch, dass es um nen kleinen Jungen, das Meer und einen Mord ging. Und irgendwie wie ein Pseudo-Lullaby für den kleinen Jungen klang. Und dass eine Frau es gesungen hat. Und ich hatte im Hinterkopf Tori irgendwas, was aber vorne und hinten nicht zu passen schien.

    Und das bisher einzig gute: Ich habs gefunden
    Tori Amos: 97 Bonnie and Clyde

    So, jetzt werde ich das Viechzoix meines besten Freundes versorgen, meine Wäsche aus seiner Waschmaschine nehmen (ich MAG es, wenn er nicht da ist *ggg*) und dann heim fahren und versuchen, mein Herz mit Lebensmittelrecht zu erfreuen. Nee, erst zu Lidl Schokolade kaufen.... oder?

    Good morning people, a very happy wednesday morning to one and all. Isi, we've already got one Tigger here in Leoland...
    1. I had to look up what a Dohle is, were you wearing lip gloss ? *gg*
    2. What ??
    3. Who ??
    4. Isi, Isi, Isi, you're getting to be old enough to know what you want.*fg* Sum, ergo edo

    Narrator: After a long (forced) illness [the little bugger wouldn't me on the keyboard]I'm back to report on a somewhat strange phenonemon that even Mykl with his troglodite speed intelect is starting to notice. It's the Gegenwind *cue roll of thunder and lightening at the tower windows* [what do you mean YOU haven't got any tower windows], strange but true whenever Mykl is out and about there is a stiff breeze (with the same sense of British irony that would descibe a hurricane as "a bit of a blow") which appears out of nowhere and is seemingly dead set on preventing Mykl from getting to where he wants to go. Despite checking weather forecasts, and looking out of the window at the dead still tree branches, by the time he's got his bike out and small eddies of dust can be seen aimlessly moving the dirt along the street. They're trying to act nonchalantly, but they're waiting. Waiting for Mykl. The locals have long since cottoned on to this peculiarity of the weather. Housewives can be seen tapping their feet and mumbling "he's late" as they wait on their steps to hang out their washing (where else can you dry a weeks washing in 5 minutes) and small children hide in the bushes in their self made Bollerwagen boats with bright checkeered table cloth sails. Then, when they see that Mykl is coming they fly down the road towards him with eye watering speed. With lots of laughing and squealing it's a "hello Mykl" and as the boats take them rapidly past him he hears the doppler echo of a "Bye Mykl, see you tomorrow" as they disa ppear in the direction he's just come. The local radio sender has started giving out the times of his next weeks shift so that other cyclists can plan their journeys around him (depending on wether they're cycling with or against the Mykl).And Mykl, as I said he's starting to notice and singing along with Queen on his way to work this morning Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me for me, for meeee, for meeeee, he stopped, he thought... *Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me for me]/b] ??*... shook his head sadly and started off once again - against the wind - on his way to work.

    Morning Cat daddy (another silent reader ??),almost *gg* But when you've got a couple of hundred million Euros of combustibles lying around, flames and smoke make everybody nervous.Still, sex in the toilets is a whole lot more fun than a ciggy,*fg* (if you have time to book out of work first]*another fg*

    Morning, mykl.. Nice story.. *fg* I had gusts from the right side this morning (so probably from the left this evening..)

    Hi, CD!

    *chuckle* I already know in advance from where the wind will blow this evening when I ride home.
    #71Authormyklausunna (236435) 27 Feb 08, 09:25
    Very strange wind around Unna.. But as long as you let the people know when you are where..they can get used to it.. They could even build some windmill.. There are a lot of opportunities.. and resources to discover..

    Anyway, why were/are you so happy this morning (singing your way into this mornings thread) ??
    #73Authormyklausunna (236435) 27 Feb 08, 09:32
    Oh..I wasn't happy before I started singing..But then I sang..and sang..(I love the Gliddy glub gloopy Nibby nabby noopy La la la lo lo- Part)...and then I became more and more happy. :)
    So singing a happy song is a good start of a day.. Then I invited my parents in law to hubbies birthday dinner.. And even more happy, I can now start organizing it.. (I love to organize social events like that.. :)

    AND: I was right about something yesterday! (Good) and my boss was wrong about it! (Even better)
    #74Author Waringham (384862) 27 Feb 08, 09:41
    And naturally Schadenfreude doesn't even raise it's ugly head, just because your boss was wrong *gg* WOW, birthdays and anniversaries, a busy little time of year for you, isn't it ? *chuckle* We sing a lot here (we need sth. to maintain our sanity), I started off whistling "good morning starshine" and now there's lots of nibby nabby noobing going on in the background whilst I type *gg*
    #75Authormyklausunna (236435) 27 Feb 08, 09:50
    He (my boss) is still trying to find out why he went wrong.. Keeps him busy and away from our room..

    ooooo, yes please. I think we've already covered most of the nasty things that we'd like to do to them here at work (but we're still open to creative suggestions)*fg* It's not what that do that's so worrying, it's the fall out that happens later - (usually one or two days after everybody has gone home) and we have to stick things together with chewing gum until it all works again.

    Ich kenn das Lied nicht, aber es klingt TOLL

    Gliddy glub gloopy
    Nibby nabby noopy
    La la la lo lo
    Sabba sibby sabba
    Nooby abba nabba
    Le le lo lo
    Tooby ooby walla
    Nooby abba naba

    ich hör besser auf, nicht, dass die Schlange die gerade gefressenen zwei Ratten wieder auskotzt...

    mykl, especially for you the lyrics of the lovely Tori Amos song
    "Just the two of us.. [8X]
    Baby your da-da loves you (hey)
    And I'ma always be here for you (hey) no matter what happens
    You're all I got in this world
    I would never give you up for nothin
    Nobody in this world is ever gonna keep you from me
    I love you
    C'mon Hai-Hai, we goin to the beach
    Grab a couple of toys and let da-da strap you in the car seat
    Oh where's mama? She's takin a little nap in the trunk
    Oh that smell (whew!) da-da musta runned over a skunk
    Now I know what you're thinkin - it's kind of late to go swimmin
    But you know your mama, she's one of those type of women
    that do crazy things, and if she don't get her way, she'll throw a fit
    Don't play with da-da's toy knife, honey, let go of it (no!)
    And don't look so upset, why you actin bashful?
    Don't you wanna help da-da build a sand castle? (yeah!)
    And mama said she wants to show how far she can float
    And don't worry about that little boo-boo on her throat
    It's just a little scratch - it don't hurt, her was eatin
    dinner while you were sweepin and spilled ketchup on her shirt
    Mama's messy isn't she? We'll let her wash off in the water
    and me and you can pway by ourselves, can't we?
    Just the two of us.. [2X]
    And when we ride!
    Just the two of us.. [2X]
    Just you and I!
    Just the two of us.. [2X]
    And when we ride!
    Just the two of us.. [2X]
    Just you and I!
    See honey.. there's a place called heaven and a place called hell
    A place called prison and a place called jail
    And da-da's probably on his way to all of em except one
    Cause mama's got a new husband and a stepson
    And you don't want a brother do ya? (Nah)
    Maybe when you're old enough to understand a little better
    I'll explain it to ya
    But for now we'll just say mama was real real bad
    She was bein mean to dad and made him real real mad
    But I still feel sad that I put her on time-out
    Sit back in your chair honey, quit tryin to climb out (WAHH!)
    I told you it's okay HaiHai, wanna ba-ba?
    Take a night-night? Nan-a-boo, goo-goo ga-ga?
    Her make goo-goo ca-ca? Da-da change your dia-dee
    Clean the baby up so her can take a nighty-nighty
    Your dad'll wake her up as soon as we get to the water
    Ninety-seven Bonnie and Clyde, me and my daughter
    Just the two of us.. [2X]
    And when we ride!
    Just the two of us.. [2X]
    Just you and I!
    Just the two of us.. [2X]
    And when we ride!
    Just the two of us.. [2X]
    Just you and I!
    Wake up sweepy head we're here, before we pway
    we're gonna take mama for a wittle walk along the pier
    Baby, don't cry honey, don't get the wrong idea
    Mama's too sweepy to hear you screamin in her ear (ma-maa!)
    That's why you can't get her to wake, but don't worry
    Da-da made a nice bed for mommy at the bottom of the lake
    Here, you wanna help da-da tie a rope around this rock? (yeah!)
    We'll tie it to her footsie then we'll roll her off the dock
    Ready now, here we go, on the count of free..
    One.. two.. free.. WHEEEEEE! (whoooooshhhhh)
    There goes mama, spwashin in the wa-ta
    No more fightin wit dad, no more restraining order
    No more step-da-da, no more new brother
    Blow her kisses bye-bye, tell mama you love her (mommy!)
    Now we'll go play in the sand, build a castle and junk
    But first, just help dad with two more things out the trunk
    Just the two of us.. [2X]
    And when we ride!
    Just the two of us.. [2X]
    Just you and I!
    Just the two of us.. [2X]
    And when we ride!
    Just the two of us.. [2X]
    Just you and I!

    Just the two of us.. [4X]
    Just me and you baby
    is all we need in this world
    Just me and you
    Your da-da will always be there for you
    Your da-da's always gonna love you
    Remember that
    If you ever need me I will always be here for you
    If you ever need anything, just ASK
    Da-da will be right there
    Your da-da loves you
    I love you baby"

    If you can keep your head when all around are losing theirs, try picking somewhere less crowded to land your helicopter!
    If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs, it's just possible you haven't grasped the situation.

    If you can keep your head when all about you
    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
    If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
    But make allowance for their doubting too;

    If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
    Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
    Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
    And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:

    If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
    If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
    If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
    And treat those two impostors just the same;

    If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
    Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
    Or watch the things you gave your life to broken,
    And stoop and build 'em up with wornout tools:

    If you can make one heap of all your winnings
    And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
    And lose, and start again at your beginnings
    And never breathe a word about your loss;

    If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
    To serve your turn long after they are gone,
    And so hold on when there is nothing in you
    Except the Will which says to them: 'Hold on!'

    If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
    Or walk with kings - nor lose the common touch,
    If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
    If all men count with you, but none too much;

    If you can fill the unforgiving minute
    With sixty seconds' worth of distance run -
    Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
    And - which is more - you'll be a Man my son! [Rudyard Kipling]

I'm not sure whether they can really revent the exploding man (whoever that is gonna be..Peter, Sylar, Ted?) from exploding.. I'm exited and really looking forward to it.. No one is going to disturb me today between 20:15 and 22:15..!

    #164Authormyklausunna (236435) 05 Mar 08, 11:58
    No, but it's not clear who it is.. Sylar and Peter can both adapt other's abilities. Peter by just meeting them (and he has met Ted -who can set free radioactive energy- at the end of last weeks episode)..Sylar by killing them. So, that's that.
    And what will the cheerleader have to do (Save the cheerleader, save the world..).. Hiro has returned from a trip into his future with the task to kill Sylar and has failed so far.
    They're all in New York and something is definitely going to happen..

    I watch a lot here..not so much at home.. When I get home, I need some recreation..and after a day at the microscope and computer, I tend to have problems with the eyes when I read.. So I switch on the TV and get entertained.. Like watching American crime series.. They use such ultra-modern lab methods..
    Heroes.. I first saw the Trailer and though..well, that might be sth let's have a look.. And then I became addicted..

    At home, I prefer a good talk, a glass of wine..and things I won't discuss that openly here.. ;)

    #170Author Waringham (384862) 05 Mar 08, 14:13

    Scheiße wars.
    Schlußworte der Prüferin: Hm, da müssen Sie sich mit ihrem Bericht aber schon sehr anstrengen. Und zur Not können Sie ja immer noch mit der QLM-Note ausgleichen...

    Und jetzt schwitz ich hier über einem unmöglichen Bericht, weil ich Geflügel-Leberwurst hatte, in der histologisch nachweisbar Haut war, Speicheldrüsengewebe und Milchdrüsengewebe.

    Geflügelleber ist keine drin, Speck ist drin. (Aber es heißt ja auch nicht Geflügelleberwurst, sondern Geflügel-Leberwurst) In Bauchspeck dürfen auch "nicht laktierende" Milchdrüsen sein. (Keine Ahnung, ob die laktierend oder nicht laktierend waren...) Schweinespeicheldrüsen sind auch erlaubt, z.B. in Backenspeck. Aber auf der Packung steht: Speck, das ist eigentlich "das unter der Haut des Schweines liegende Fettgewebe ohne Schwarte auch mit Resten von Skelettmuskulatur". NICHT Bauchspeck, NICHT Backenspeck.


    Und alle Studis um mich rum gucken nur verwirrt und wissen es auch nicht... Wie soll ich denn daraus nen richtig guten Bericht machen, der meinen viel zu breiten Arsch rettet, wenn ich nicht mal weiß, ob das so verkauft werden darf oder nicht?!
    #171Author easy (238884) 05 Mar 08, 16:51
    Ähm..das ist sehr ecklig, easy..

    Welche Tiere dürfen denn da überhaupt rein? Geflügel und Schwein?
    Im eigentlichen Fettgewebe sind doch keine Drüsen, oder?

    Kann ich Dir irgendwie helfen?
    #172Author Waringham (384862) 05 Mar 08, 16:56
    Ich finds auch ekelig...

    Schwein darf rein, Geflügel natürlich auch. In normale Leberwurst auch noch Rind.
    Und Drüsen sollen normalerweise nicht rein, aber Speicheldrüsen lassen sich wohl nicht verhindern, aber in den Vorlesungsunterlagen gab es ein Histobild abgebildet, in dem sich Milchdrüsengewebe in einer Wurst befand, und darüber stand: Nicht zulässige Bestandteile.

    Und in den Leitsätzen lese ich jetzt: Zulässig


    Danke, Wari, *genießerischtröstenddrückenlass* mir kann gerade nur noch ein Lebensmittelrecht-Crack helfen. Mit dem telefonier ich heut abend (vom China-Restaurant aus, denn da geh ich hin!!!) und dann muß ich halt noch ne Nachtschicht einlegen...

    Hi Wari, I saw the last hour or so and for someone not "hooked" on the story there were enough holes in the plot big enough to drive a bus through.
    *cynical mode on*
    1. How to learn the art of swordsmanship in 40 mins from papa.
    2. As they captured the artist (don't know his name) nobody (from the dozens) of the police noticed the two going invisible and running through the police circle.
    3. the man who was looking for his son (and can walk through walls) gets shot 3 times and drags himslf onward till the end of the show.
    4. And the funniest was after the baddie was skewered with Japanees sword and still had enough strenth to lift a 30 Kg manhole cover and get away without anybody noticing the pool/trail of blood.
    *cynical mode off(as if there were a difference)*
    Still, I'm sure it was a gripping story for those who were following it.
    #179Authormyklausunna (236435) 06 Mar 08, 07:26
    1) He's a Hero.. Never think about what they can do or why..they just can!?
    2) That wasn't the artist.. The artist was killed a few episodes before by Sylar. That was Ted Sprague, the radioactive guy.. Anyway, I have no idea, why nobody noticed Peter and Claire escape..they even ran into people..
    3) His nam is D.L. For the rest see 1)..
    4) I'm not sure about that.. I actually thought he (Sylar) was really dead and someone (?) dragged his body away..

    I'm sure it was just and only for those who followed it...And even they (I) are not sure what really happened.
    I still have a lot of questions, too. And some things that didn't show and I'm sure off..Like: Peter and Nathan both idea how..but see 1) for that, too.

    I really like Hiro (the japanes guy).. Being hurled through time and space.. standing between the Kensei and some other Samurai starting to fight, he says.. "Ich glaube, mir wird schlecht".. *lol*
    #180Author Waringham (384862) 06 Mar 08, 07:40
    Peter and Nathan ? Is that the guy that went critical then his brother the congressman flew him into space to become a supernova ? How do you know they survived (you know so. who's watched 1.2) ? And now you have to wait until sept./Oct. untill the next series starts (or buy the DVD)
    #181Authormyklausunna (236435) 06 Mar 08, 07:50
    Yep, Peter is the guy who exploded..and Nathan his brother, the congressman..and btw Claire's corporal (?) father.
    I read about it.. It's hard to avoid spoilers, when you're looking for information in the web. Just saw that you are actually right..and Sylar seems to have survived, too.
    My brother will record the 2nd season on DVD for me and give it to me tomorrow.. No idea where he got it..(and do I really want to know that? No!)
    #182Author Waringham (384862) 06 Mar 08, 07:59
    *chuckle* Doesn't getting information from the net about the following episodes spoil it a bit ? I mean, you'll know what's coming before it happens - and you're not Hiro.
    #183Authormyklausunna (236435) 06 Mar 08, 09:43
    As I don't read the episode guide, it's not that bad..
    It's been the same with Harry Potter..I knew before that he wouldn't die, but as I didn't know how that was going to work, I still was exited.. (Though I have to admit that I would have liked it much better if he actually had died..anyway.. ;)
    #184Author Waringham (384862) 06 Mar 08, 09:58
    I gave up on Harry Potter after book three. I'll bet your the kind of peron that reads the last 3 pages of a krimmi first - just to see whodunnit. Then you read all of it to find out how and why.
    #185Authormyklausunna (236435) 06 Mar 08, 10:04

    Robin Hood mit Michael Praed.. da sagst Du was.. (sind halt doch so ein Alter, hm?!) den fand ich auch toll.. Habe dann nicht mehr geguckt, als er tot war und der Connery Sohn weitergemacht hat..

    Lynley finde ich schlecht verfilmt..zwar spannend, aber zu weit weg von den Büchern.. Cadfael ist nur genial..leider haben sie nicht alle verfilmt und bei der Hälfte Hugh Beringar ausgewechselt..

    G'day people, a very happy tuesday morning. Hi Wari, hope you're in good fettle today. It's a bit windy here (no need to ask in which direction), but we've missed most of the rain or better said it rained during the night and the morning is bright and sunny.
    #220Authormyklausunna (236435) 11 Mar 08, 08:01
    Moin, mykl.. It's raining here at the moment.. drizzling..grey and clammy.. Anyway. I fogot to tell you yesterday that my brother brought me the 2nd season..freshly from American TV.. and somehow even in high definition.. As I'm on holiday beginning tomorrow evening (ka-doink!) until April 30th.. I'll have a lot to do watching season 2. Of course, it's in English..but I'll get used to that pretty soon. Although I noticed that Mohinder Suresh is not really from India.. His actor is US-American.. And I thoroughly know an Indian accent!
    #221Author Waringham (384862) 11 Mar 08, 08:42
    Do you have to go on a retraining course when you get back *fg*
    *sigh* It's going to be very lonely here, who knows maybe even the end of the eater outers. It's becoming a noticeable phenomenon that when so. is away for a couple of weeks they never come back.Is there a secret society of eater outer bringer ummers ?
    I'm not really surprised that the cast of Heroes is all American, we just get used to the German voices.

    I've just heard I've got to explain our jobs to a half dozen trainees.
    :( :(

    It happens evry few weeks, but they start to fall asleep after 10 mins (it's the gentle thrumming of 27 computers that does it). I never really know what to say or why 'cause they forget it before we've finished speaking. So, I'll probably do as normal - LIE and change the subject.

    #226Authormyklausunna (236435) 11 Mar 08, 08:56
    No, I'm not really surprised, too. But at the beginning of episode 2-1, Mohinder gives a scientific talk.. and as I heard a lot of talks from Indian people, I was surprised to understand him that clearly.. Had some difficulties with Claire, too.. But that'll soon be better when I get used to the sound of American English again..
    #227Author Waringham (384862) 11 Mar 08, 09:00

    It's all a bit frustrating, they don't want to, we dont want to, but so.thought it would be a good idea to let the trainees see the operators (it's like a trip to the zoo). As usual the people who reach these descisions aren't involved with any of the work that comes thereof.
    *chuckle* I see the nick revelation thread is still running, you can see that some people are caught in a quandry about how much information they can/should release opposed to defending/confirming what their peers think of them. (and I've been wrong quite a few times about the gender of the people - not that it's really important (except here below stairs where such a mistake can be embarrassing)
    #230Authormyklausunna (236435) 11 Mar 08, 10:35
    ..Yep, that's a really interesting thread. I mean..most times when you talk or write to people, you have a picture in mind (at least-I have).. You imagine them looking like someone you know..or a star..or something. We outeaters know a lot more about each other than other users do..but we don't know what we look like (but we know how easy's...ähm..snake looks like *fg*).
    In Mr.Darcy's thread we know each others real names and addresses (for we exchange books and stuff)..but if you can't find them in world wide web (like me), you don't know what they look like.
    I'm gonna meet Liese and B'Elanna on Friday.. How interesting.. And I once met Betty_Boo.. and we both thought the other would be much older..

    Strangely enough I haven't put (or tried to put) a face to each of the nicks. I have formed some opinions as to the character of some of the nicks, but I wouldn't dream of putting those opinons here (regardless of how cynical or PunC I am or am percieved to be). I haven't met any of the people here, but there are a couple who've said they live in the immediate area (the Reverend for one,hmmm, I wonder where he is these days). I know for a fact that a friend of mine (lives about 20Km away) contributes and receives to/from LEO on a regular basis(well, he is a translator/business English teacher by proffession), but he wont say which nick he has/uses. That's OK as well, everybody has a right to their privacy (at the moment).

    Doggie Rules

    A Dog's Purpose (from a 6-year-old)

    Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year-old Irish
    Wolfhound named Belker. The dog's owners, Ron, his wife, Lisa, and their little boy,
    Shane, were all very attached to Belker, and they were hoping for a miracle.

    I examined Belker and found he was dying of cancer. I told the family we
    couldn't do anything for Belker, and offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for
    the old dog in their home.

    As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they thought it would be
    good for six- year-old Shane to observe the procedure. They felt as though Shane might
    learn something from the experience.

    The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throat as Belker's family
    surrounded him.
    Shane seemed so calm, petting the old dog for the last time, that I
    wondered if he understood what was going on.

    Within a few minutes, Belker slipped peacefully away..

    The little boy seemed to accept Belker's transition without any difficulty or confusion.
    We sat together for a while after Belker's death, wondering aloud about the sad fact
    that animal lives are shorter than human lives. Shane, who had been listening quietly,
    piped up, 'I know why.'

    Startled, we all turned to him. What came out of his mouth next stunned
    me. I'd never heard a more comforting explanation.

    He said, 'People are born so that they can learn how to live a good
    life -- like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right?' The six-year-old
    continued, 'Well, dogs already know how to do that, so they don't have to stay as long.'

    Live simply.

    Love generously.

    Care deeply...

    Speak kindly.
    Remember, if a dog was the teacher you would learn things like:

    When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.

    Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joy-ride.

    Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure

    Take naps.

    Stretch before rising.

    Run, romp, and play daily.

    Thrive on attention and let people touch you.

    Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.

    On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass.

    On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.

    When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body.

    Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.

    Eat with gusto and enthusiasm. Stop when you have had enough.
    Be loyal.

    Never pretend to be something you're not.

    If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.

    When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by and nuzzle them

    Being always grateful for each new day and for the blessing you have.


    With thanks to Barbara Edwards

    HI Wari, no one was more astonished than I/me, I don't handle compliments very well, I'mm so unused to getting them. Ähm, you will of course notice that I did at least try (a bit) to set things straight again. Just goes to show that there's nowt weirder than folk, everyone has differing opinions on things (and a bloody good job too).Maybe, I've grown so used to painting me black That I'm starting to believe my own spin.
    #278Authormyklausunna (236435) 13 Mar 08, 09:57

    #279Authormyklausunna (236435) 13 Mar 08, 09:58
    Mykl, you are English.. so you don't have to neither speak nor write it properly.
    You just have to tell me whether I'm writing bullshit or not.. :)

    /zumir/ I don't know why I've been able to install an English spellchecker at work, but not on this computer?! /zumir/

    *chuckle* Why look foreward to sth. that with probability wont happen. You have a very good grasp of the English language and we all make spelling mistakes, so that doesn't count. Speaking of which I need to start to read with my auto-correction switched off, so you have to neither speak nor write it properly without the don't (double negative, and we aint no Americans).
    or so you don't have to either speak or write it properly (same reason, don't don't go with nor)
    #283Authormyklausunna (236435) 13 Mar 08, 11:23
    But thanks for "You have a very good grasp of the English language"

    I have to look up special vocabulary from time to time..and I have to check whether I used the right wheather/wether/weather/.. each time I use the word..
    Due to my visit in Ak and the authors I read, I tend to use some American spellings rather than the BE version.. work to do..have to bring the car back to the laundry..
    I thought about gardening.. raking of (?) fallen leaves would have been great, because they would be blown to the neighbour..but in fact all that was left lying on the ground is at the neighbours.. ;)

    Bye Wari, whatever you do, have fun.
    See you later.

    Hallo myklausunna! Did you study Rhetoric (that is if you don't mind me/my asking!!!)
    #286AuthorMOTHER (383672) 13 Mar 08, 12:57
    *chuckle* No mum, I don't try to persuade people to do anything. Well, at least I don't think I do *scatches head*. I've spent nearly all my life working with people (which is diff. from working around people in my book).Why do you ask, if I may make so bold. Do I give the impression I'm trying to ?
    #287Authormyklausunna (236435) 13 Mar 08, 13:03
    Didn't mean the persuasive speaking or writing part of rhetoric. Its just the way you write. Hmm.. difficult to say!
    #288AuthorMOTHER (383672) 13 Mar 08, 13:12
    Ahh, that's an easy one (no pun intended Isi), my writngs written wrotten *gg* Didn't study nuffink, left school after A levels, but that was a long long time ago. I've never made a secrte of it, I use Leo to improve my English skills (may sound a little strange). I've lived abroad for over 30 years (abroad from where ? an interesting point) and the majority of my jobs have needed my hands on skills more than my written ones. I'm simply 'orribly out of practice in the art of writing good English (no Wari, I'm not fishing again !)

    *re-arrange secrte to make secret*

    I use Leo to improve my English skills (may sound a little strange). It does. I do hope your Schreibweise wouldn't lose the honesty and ,yes, sensitivity it has at the moment, son! :-)

    Aaawwwww mum, giv ovver yer'll 'ave me in tears. Seriously though folks, I've never considered myself being sensitive (under this black humoured cantankerous exterior is a black humored cantankerous interior)*fg*, this is going to get a little getting used to. In the mean time though, anyone who can find something positive to say about my postings is welcome back here anytime.

    Err, you're not by any chance 50ish and single are you *chuckle, just checking, you never know*

    I've just thought, just because your nick is female doesn't mean that you are, old preconceptions die hard.
    #293Authormyklausunna (236435) 13 Mar 08, 14:45
    /zumir/ Well, I'll just keep silent and read.. That is gonna be intersting! /zumir/
    #294Author Waringham (384862) 13 Mar 08, 14:49
    Hi Wari, If you were going to, you would have said - tomorrow.
    #295Authormyklausunna (236435) 13 Mar 08, 14:52
    Strange how the very word MOTHER makes people respond in a peculiar manner. I discovered Leo about three months ago and just couldn't think of any knick and never really thought it's important anyways. It also happens to be my first encounter with the virtual world.
    #296AuthorMOTHER (383672) 13 Mar 08, 14:54
    Comment That will be interesting! And perhaps tomorrow it is still going to be?

    btw..just watched season 2.1 ..Peter is still alive, as is Nathan..

    Hello Waringham, since you are here may I ask what exactly does a Paleoethnobotanist does?
    #298AuthorMOTHER (383672) 13 Mar 08, 14:59
    #299Author Waringham (384862) 13 Mar 08, 14:59
    *MOTHER very neatly avoiding the questions*
    F5. *chuckle* that was one of my early questions a long while ago.
