treeslicer: So did you transfer into German then, too? I had enough of French in first year, trying to pronounce barbarisms like "Moi non plus" like the Froggies do. (rofl) Jan 25, 2020 4:09:16 GMT
christain: SMACK!!!----I'm loving this! :D----- (rofl) Now us Scottish---we'd just take your liquor and leave you to kill each other. (rofl) Jan 25, 2020 2:51:02 GMT
RufusScorpius: I was scolded by a French teacher for not speaking good French. I told hear all I hear coming out of her mouth was badly mispronounced provincial Latin. Jan 25, 2020 2:46:55 GMT
AndiTheBarvarian: The Roman senator in the animal cage behind my house utters such things usually but we know the Romans used only a bad copy of the Etruscan and Greek letters. Jan 25, 2020 1:06:55 GMT
RufusScorpius: I like your use of the LATIN alphabet. Why not use your own? Oh, wait... Jan 25, 2020 0:45:41 GMT
AndiTheBarvarian: It's ok for us barbarians to HAVE, what the Romans had! Jan 25, 2020 0:14:55 GMT *
RufusScorpius: Same thing. You are just imitating. But I understand. You can be LIKE a Roman, but you can never BE a Roman.. Jan 25, 2020 0:02:23 GMT
AndiTheBarvarian: The reason may be that the pencil still was in the hand of a degenerated Roman who lost it somehow (the hand, not the pencil)! Jan 24, 2020 22:58:41 GMT
RufusScorpius: Scratching a pencil across paper imitating what you see civilized people doing isn't writing. Barbarian Jan 24, 2020 22:00:06 GMT
AndiTheBarvarian: I sometimes write words with a pencil but no one can read them! :'( Jan 24, 2020 21:12:42 GMT
RufusScorpius: Pencils aren't used for writing words anymore. Jan 24, 2020 21:07:27 GMT
nerdthenord: I use pencils exclusively in college now. Try drawing chemical models or doing math problems with a pen that can't be easily erased and you will see that they certainly have their uses. Jan 24, 2020 20:47:35 GMT
MOK: Also, artists use pencils all the dang time! Jan 24, 2020 20:04:04 GMT
MOK: The original line is all about Richelieu boasting about his prowess as a statesman, nothing to do with the relative merits of pens and swords. Jan 24, 2020 20:02:45 GMT *
MOK: "Beneath the rule of men entirely great, the pen is mightier than the sword. Behold the arch-enchanters wand! - itself a nothing! - but taking sorcery from the master-hand to paralyse the Caesars, and to strike the loud earth breathless!" Jan 24, 2020 20:02:16 GMT
stormmaster: people who are mathematicians Jan 24, 2020 19:19:43 GMT
RufusScorpius: Who uses a pencil anymore? They are as obsolete as the sword to which they are supposed to be mightier than. Jan 24, 2020 17:51:40 GMT
