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)


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"

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)
