Hi Paul...

:(

Well, now I feel like a total git. Of course there was a good reason. Simply wanting a cliffhanger is a good enough reason, fer cryin' out loud. That's how series of things work.
But having a fever + kid has fever = you can do whatever you bl__dy well please, and we're going to have your back.

Well, I know I will, and I'm pretty sure a lot of the rest of us will too.
Sorry about my first post here. I was just expressing typical cliffhanger frustration.

Furthermore: I had not seen that pic until you posted it on the home page. So I probably would have missed out on that cuteness overload. So thanks, get well soon, and don't skimp on the NSAIDS.

Hey now! That's vandalism!

So... what color are they darkening your door to?
"I see a red door and I want it painted black"
Any colour you like.

Best wishes to Paul & son for getting better real quick!

Absolutely.

If Paul did a week or reprinting old eBay images, i wouldn't complain.*

Yes, but he made that $127 back in January. Posting it now will do nothing to add to that amount. :|

We don't know why the image got posted today, but we do know it wasn't to sell the already-sold image.
Because both my son and I can down with a fever at the same time and both of us felt like complete shit. I felt trying to sleep might be in order.
And now we know. There was a reason, and it was a good one.

Is he trying to say " I believe I know what FUBAR means " or something?? google translate is having problems with 'bad' german grammar??

I found "wer's glaubt wird selig" means "who believe it will be saved" ( from google)

BTW the german for FUBAR is " Bis zur Unkenntlichkeit gefickt " NOT safe for 'innocent ears'.. :P

What do you say in german to a kid who will not stop asking you what a rude word is?? say its 'martian' ??? :P :D

Literally translated it's kinda "German? It(sic!) doesn't believe me - and I too know what "FUBAR" means!"
I found "wer's glaubt wird selig" means "who believe it will be saved" ( from google)
It's basically a way of saying you don't believe someone - like saying "yeah, right..." in English. ("He who believeth in it will be saveth" - in the biblical fairytale sense.)
BTW the german for FUBAR is " Bis zur Unkenntlichkeit gefickt " NOT safe for 'innocent ears'.. :P
Eh... that's veeery German (the country moreso than the language); you wouldn't hear me use that sentence (can't vouch for todays youth, though) - I'd probably say something like "Es ist alles im Eimer/Arsch." ("It's all in/gone down the bucket/ass.")
What do you say in german to a kid who will not stop asking you what a rude word is?? say its 'martian' ??? :P :D
Considering I don't have kids and don't deal with them on a semi-regular basis - dunno. :)

"Es glaupt es Mir nicht" is translated "It is believed by me not"- this was before American grammar and syntax permeated the language.

Also- when I learned German, one did not utter "profane words", one would oath or say things like "stormy weather" (DONNERWETTER!!!"). In this country, a fellow hits his thumb with a hammer and yells "SHIT!", everybody understands- in German, hit your thumb with a hammer and yell "SHEISSE!" and people look on the ground and ask "Wo?" ("Where?")

Yeah, oaths and imprecations tend to be very "cultural" and often don't translate well. I remember reading that in medieval France, "morte" ("death") was one of the worst, most unforgivable obscenities.

Then, there's the multi-sentient-race conversation I read years ago... I think it was in Anthony's "Prostho Plus"... something along the lines of

"Sir, the students have broken into your offce and are ransacking the storage files."
"Boiling oceans!" exclaimed Dean Oyster. "My files!!"
A red light lit on the Universal Translator, indicating a curse-word.
"Did he just say 'Gritty Oil'???" asked the robot, Its facial sensors slightly out of position...
