Oh-ho! Now that you've almost got your letters, you're getting all fancy, I see. Well, played Doctor Nom. Congratulations, on fanciness and passing alike!

Irony would be "women who choose bad mates when better options are available". Although I suspect Mr K and I would have featured prominently in that study.
Hi vic-k!

I literally laughed out loud at that. :lol:
Sadly that wasn't it. Although irony may have featured in a different way. Thesis was on the psychological outcomes (or, more accurately, sequelae since I didn't prove causation) of a week-long youth leadership program for 18-30 year olds.

I was worried for a minute you were going to say it was on crowd and individual responses to controlled emotional stimuli on internet fora.

To be honest, I just love the sound of that word: sequelae. Sequelae, sequelae, sequelae!
I think I just lost all my fancy points. :roll:

Ta. Although, to my shame, I didn't name you in my acknowledgements, I believe that Scrivener made a huge contribution to the success of my thesis. Let me publicly acknowledge you here.

Attempting to prove causation is a risky business - he's lucky he only got a suspended sentence.

Wish I'd thought of it.

In many ways Scrivener isn't writing software, but sanity software.

Consider the user base. At least the vocal forum dwelling user base. Are you sure it is "sanity" instead of "insanity control" software?

Question: If one personality of Mr K is sane, does that make all of him sane? What if that personality is not the actual Mr K personality, but is one of the off shoots?

Interesting thought nightmare.

You should know better than to write rubbish like that, Young Mr Jaysen. My human, Vic-k, hasn't got a personality.

Piled Higher & Deeper is one of my favourite comics. Of the three you posted, I lived the first one on a daily basis, I suspect my wife lived the second and the third beautifully illustrates why I switched OS and won't go back.
Complete and utter NOMsense.
