Burma-Shave. (I apologise for the very dated, very US-centric reference.)Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 06:08, 28 November 2017 (UTC)
Can't believe I wasted half my musical life on braindance/IDM and gothic rock. Enjoy! [1] Just don't try to listen to the lyrics. Equinox 06:11, 28 November 2017 (UTC)

dihexahedron[edit]

I think that it is actually a six-sided dipyramid. SemperBlotto (talk) 09:02, 10 December 2017 (UTC)

Maybe. M-W says "a form of crystal having 12 faces (such as a double 6-sided pyramid)", suggesting it's broader. Equinox 09:13, 10 December 2017 (UTC)

A few red links[edit]

Don't know what it's worth, but I've found quite a few funny-looking missing words in this document. Cf. especially "Clumps of insults for the dregs of society"

lothe[edit]

Your surmise that lothe was an antique version of loath is belied by (1) the use of both terms separately in the same text (namely the KJV translators)--presumably they used one or the other if they meant the same thing; (2) Webster's 1828 entry for "lothe" makes no such surmise. Is there some authority on which you replaced my definition? AnthroMimus (talk) 23:40, 22 January 2018 (UTC)

BTW, John Donne uses both lothe (in a specialized sense as I quote) and loathe. Cf the 3rd and 4th satires, both written in the mid 1590s. I suppose he didn't understand they were the saqme word as well? Looking forward to your reply. AnthroMimus (talk) 01:09, 23 January 2018 (UTC)

Change it back if you want. Your entry had the wrong verb inflections so I thought it might just not be a very good entry. Equinox 14:01, 23 January 2018 (UTC)

A truly inscrutable "Keep"[edit]

Eq, I still love you like a brother, but there are very rare occasions when I wish there was an "unthank" button. -- You-know-who 05:10, 24 January 2018 (UTC)

Haha. When I lived in the cold, lonely prison of Norwich University accommodation there was an "Unthank Road" nearby. I am sure it is still there. Go walk down that road until you feel better. Eqqy has his reasons. Love you too, slut. Equinox 05:27, 24 January 2018 (UTC)
Exercise for the reader: why does Equinox want to keep "cold as ice" but not "hot as fire"? (and it's nothing to do with Goth/emo nerdery). Equinox 05:29, 24 January 2018 (UTC)
Unthank is a surname, mostly found in the North-East of England but there was a pocket of them in Norwich. SemperBlotto (talk) 07:19, 19 February 2018 (UTC)
