... there are people in the world who wholehearted believe that the "AD" used to indicate a date means "After (Christ's) Death". Idiots.

Potential sarcasm aside, BC does mean "Before Christ('s birth)". AD stands for "Anno Domini", which is derived from medieval latin and means "In the year of the Lord" (sometimes said as "Year of our Lord", but I'm not a Christian so sod that noise).

The main reason this is important is that Jesus wasn't instantaneous, so if AD meant after his death, then there would be a gap of a few decades between 1 BC and 1 AD.

In unrelated news, Pepsi Throwback does not contain citric acid for some reason.

Jesus has a casting time of one round and a duration of instantaneous.

Unless it's counted as his biblical rebirth/return from the dead/zombification. Then there's a few days of overlap.

it goes BC, LC, AD

LC isn't used much because its a non-confirmed 3 or so Decades that most likely didn't even happen.

According to James Joyce, (Paraphrasing) "It took 17 years to write Finnegan's Wake, it should take 17 years to read."

I'm on year 8 and counting.

That's probably why it's taken 8 years.

in case law the v in R v Smith or John v Smith is pronounced 'and'
any time a lawyer or judge pronounces it as 'verse' he/she gets mocked by their peers behind his/her back for looking like a giant tool

While the submarine is vastly superior to the boat in every way, over 97 percent of people still use boats for aquatic transportation.
Transformers is a brand that really has something for everyone. We are a darn lucky fandom.

... >_>

it was mentioned that the book should take 17 years to read... and that it has taken 8 so far for Devcon.... thus I asked,

"how long is the movie?" as a joke.



been a few months since I dragged this out...

It's always piss on destron day!

There's your irrelevant fact!

Death is not a hunter unbeknownst to its prey, one is always aware that it lies in wait. Though life is merely a journey to the grave, it must not be undertaken without hope. Only then will a traveler's story live on, treasured by those who bid him farewell.
