    Freshman Dorm by Colin Kelly

    If he isn't already doing so, Colin should seriously look into becoming a travel writer. His eye for detail and thorough explanations would be perfect in that genre. He has a gift for making even the most mundane details sound interesting. I mean that seriously -- I'm not being facetious. I was reflecting on my own freshman experience lo these many years ago, when dorms had nothing but stairs (no elevators) and there was no internet or other organized way of selecting your dorm, finding out about roommates, etc. At my school, the students were informed of what down they were in. The occupants of the rooms in my dorm were assigned alphabetically by last name, and I did not find out who it was until we both arrived at the campus. Remarkably, in those days, the school actually had a housekeeper that came through the rooms once or twice a week to straighten up a bit and sweep up all the dust bunnies. That ended shortly after my arrival for cost reasons, but it at least meant that the rooms did not become pig sties (is that a plural?). It is amazing how most college students can live without some external influence! R

    It's no more irksome than you guys doing things at the weekend. Anyone with an ounce of propriety knows we do things on the weekend. No at. On. C

    As a Computer Science major I learned the only correct way to enter dates. It is yyyy-mm-dd (and we don't use / because that has a separate meaning in the internet world). Entering them that way means they will always sort correctly: year first, then month, then day. And, no single digits! yyyy-mm-dd means using a 0 in front of single-digit month values and day values. So, today is 2018-09-23. Colin
  8. Below is a brief review of the story. Set in the 1960s in an Oxford college, when being gay was still an offence punishable by imprisonment, 'Sandel' tells the story of a love affair between an undergraduate (David Rogers), and a cathedral choir boy Antony Sandel.

    Day - month - year. Seems simple. Shortest to longest period of time. Logical and scientific. But no.... Tea in the harbour, mess up the date, burn the flag, stoke the hate. Really quite Trumpian. Except for my ancestors apparently losing a large chunk of Maryland, I'm not complaining. It's yours fair and square. But the date thing irks.

    The Garden by Nevius

    I remember that story. It was very impressive. Wonder why he never wrote more? C

    The Garden by Nevius

    Reading this again because it's a repeat "Pick from the Past." My only real complaint is that the story is presented in orange type on a grey background, too blinding for me. Thankfully my iPhone has a "Readers View" option that allows me to convert the pages to something I can actually view. Someday it would be nice to modernize these pages to make them more readable. R

    I didn't invent the system, I just follow it with no independent indulgences. Just like I always follow the crowds and avoid ambiguous diversions. C

    Don't underestimate my capacity for confusion, Colin! Although you're correct, of course, that particular date is not ambiguous. If only you illogical colonials would write dates correctly: day/month/year, the logical order... 😄

    They wouldn't have been confused if you'd written the date as 9/26/18 (which you actually did, but I digress). The reason they wouldn't be confused is that while 9 is a valid day value, 26 isn't a valid month value. At least here on earth. Of course, it could represent day 9 in 26 months from now, which would be February the 9th, 2020 which is two years in the future (26 - (12 * 2)). But just think how confused people would get, especially those who are arithmetically challenged. Colin

    All this talk about loins is getting me turned on, a dangerous proposition at my age. The short answer about my due date is, September 26. I'd write it 9/26/18 but I don't want to confuse you Brits. C

    How shortly thereafter is your short that isn't short going to arrive? I need to know, because ... well, I just do. As a Bird with less brain than the Bear I lack his dubious patience - not to mention his girded loins.

    Nymphomaniacs Convention

    I love starting the day with a laugh.
  21. A man boarded an airplane and took his seat. As he settled in, he glanced up and saw the most beautiful woman boarding the plane. He soon realized she was heading straight towards his seat. As fate would have it, she took the seat right beside his. Eager to strike up a conversation, he blurted out, "Business trip or pleasure ?" She turned, smiled, and said, "Business. I'm going to the Annual Nymphomaniacs of America Convention in Boston ." He swallowed hard. Here was the most gorgeous woman he had ever seen sitting next to him, and she was going to a meeting of nymphomaniacs. Struggling to maintain his composure, he calmly asked, "What's your business role at this convention ?" "Lecturer," she responded. "I use information that I have learned from my personal experiences to debunk some of the popular myths about sexuality." "Really ?" he said. "And what kind of myths are there ?" "Well, she explained, "One popular myth is that African-American men are the most well-endowed of all men, when in fact it is the Native American Indian who is most likely to possess that trait." "Another popular myth is that Frenchmen are the best lovers, when actually it is men of Jewish descent who are the best." "I have also discovered that the lover with absolutely the best stamina is the Southern Redneck." Suddenly the woman became a little uncomfortable and blushed. "I'm sorry," she said, "I shouldn't really be discussing all of this with you. I don't even know your name . . . " "Tonto," the man said, "Tonto Goldstein, but my friends call me Bubba."

    While I was joking with Bruin, I'm not joking now. This is serious, something you don't get much from me. Here it is: Shortly, my short story that isn't so short is coming, but not today. Not Saturday, either, but shortly thereafter. So you don't have too long to wait . C

    Britishisms gaining a foothold in the U.S.

    This is too bizarre, Bruin. I deleted my comment. I have no idea how it got inside your post. There's an announcement that a new vision of Invision Community is coming that includes a security patch. It will probably be installed soon. Let's hope that helps. Colin

    Britishisms gaining a foothold in the U.S.

    Wot he said...! Incidentally, there might be a software glitch rearing its ugly head. Two posts above this (at least on my screen) is a post that purports to be from me. However the content of the post seems to contain a quote from my original post, and a comment on it from Colin. My actual post doesn't appear anywhere in the thread. Can others see the same thing, or is it just me? Bruin - a bear of very little brain and therefore easily confused...

    My tongue... reaches the parts other tongues cannot reach; perhaps I should name it Heineken? (Possibly a Brit in-joke, if in doubt google it....)
