You kids are lucky in that you even have weekends.

@Quis or anyone else who knows: Is "none" considered singular or plural? I always thought it was singular, but I keep finding it paired with both "was" and "were" and it's driving me nuts. huh.gif
alchemist x
accually, it's plural, because none is more than one thing right?
Gashole
I'd jump into my coffin before I take a grammar lesson from you. Please confirm, someone.
Quistis88
I do believe it can be used as both plural and singular (like "sheep"), depending on the context.

None means "not any", alchemist x.

I know

@Quis. or anyone els, I would like an opinion on a sig in spam central if you're up to it

hmm, interesting. I tend to use it in the plural, I think. tongue.gif


Example: "I believe none are there"


(I can't think of a use for it in the singular) Could you give me an example?

Hey wait, how is 0>1? Explain your logic, please.

Does he have logic? Can he explain something non-existent?

Oh, but so good! You are most certainly the Queen...*bows*

- Got home from local Home Depot. Found out along the way that three new restaurants were opened on the same block. blink.gif

Eh, good point, Quis.

But you just don't set up a problem like that for a ath and chem freak without explaining it. o__O

Let's see... we have:

It's a bit intimidating for the commoners, don't you think?

Haha, perhaps. You kids know I have an evil side. biggrin.gif Do you visit Home Depot often? And three restaurants on the same block . . . lucky you. Unless they're not very good restaurants. tongue.gif

Current Thoughts:

- I still haven't finished typing up everything I wanted to. And it's quarter past 2300.
- I still can't believe I splurged and bought something for myself today. And it wasn't cheap either. But oh, it looks so nice on my desk . . .
- I still feel hungry.
- I feel like going with the flow and making every member mention in bold.

@Gashole: Intimidating? I'm hoping it'll keep them in line.

Oh really? What did you buy if you don't my asking? ^^

You have hungry in just about all of your thoughts, it's almost a trademark of your thought posts now. x3

Yes, hungry, because I'm such an LMD. ph34r.gif

I bought what is called "Sun Tzu's The Art of War Book and Card Deck." I passed by it in the university bookstore today and just had to get it. It comes with a translated book (too bad there wasn't an original Chinese version; I would've bought that, too), and 50 cards with a passage on one side, and a small commentary on the other. And the set comes with a little stand so I can prop up a chosen card and stare at it all day. It completes my work space. biggrin.gif

No, I don't visit Home Depot often. I only went tonight because I needed some supplies for my senior project. Warehouse-like stores intimidate me. Too large and warehouse-y. But Costco's the exception. They have free samples. biggrin.gif

And the restaurants appeared to me in this order: Long John Silvers, Something else that I couldn't remember...Farmer's...something... and Panda Express.

That would make things interesting...

- My dad said he heard the cell phone go off, and told me to go answer it. Note that he's at one side of the house and the cell phone is on the other, and I'm somewhere in between. I was very certain the phone did not ring. Just confused...blink.gif

EDIT

Happy Birthday, Gashole! *reveals a frosted cupcake with a candle on top*

Thats awesome! I loved that text when I read excerpts from it for my Chinese Civilization course.

It wasn't too expensive was it?

It was a little more than $30 Canadian. It's expensive because I'm a Scrooge. biggrin.gif

Re: Clash of Royalty Question smile.gif
Since each of these noble persons has their own realm (and have lived in peace for quite a while) I'm sure there'll be no royal battles in forum-land

now n00b battles are another concern... tongue.gif

Chinese fast food. It's okay if there's absolutely nothing else to eat, but it's targeted at Americans who want the "Oriental flavor" but not the authenticity.
