** HISTORICAL FOOTNOTE: Aluminum was originally named "alumium" by Sir Humphry Davy, who later changed it to "aluminum" (perhaps in an attempt to make it more Latinized since alumen is Latin for alum, the aluminum compound that the name is derived from). The British (and allied English speakers) shortly thereafter changed the name once more, this time to "aluminium" so that it would again match the pattern of most other elements (helium, sodium, etc.), while the North Americans eventually decided to keep the second, slightly more traditional name. I predict that North Americans will adopt the more regular "-ium" spelling by the year 2050, prompting the British to start calling it "alumininium". At that point debate can begin on changing "platinum" to "platinium

A more protective method, as adopted by Kilo, is to simply turn one's brain off!

Kind of like write-protecting a floppy disk to avoid boot sectir virii. Guaranteed protection!

[OT]

or rather,

[OOT] -- I'm really liking this storyline (you know -- the strip??) -- Ian is using some of his bestest Bruno-expressions in the throes of labor.

I enjoy the detailed desperation. :D

Agreed. Of course, Ian's artwork is always of a high standard, to see the expressions (read=vein popping agony) expressed in a two-dimensional line art is really quite an achievement.

A feather in your cap, Ian!

ian's drawing ability is one of the things that i really like about the strip. and fiona's wit, of course - amazing how the thought of 2 weeks of labor causes the milk of human kindness to flow!

Agreed. In fact, I think the character of "Fiona," has blossomed to the point that she leaves her "inspiration" (Garfield) for dead!

More violent, more sarcastic, more grumpy...

She doesn't have the voracious appetite, but how stale did that get?

Speaking on Fiona's appetite, I need to diagree with you, in part -- I don't, in fact, believe that Fiona would ever leave Garfield for dead...


...She would make damned certain, and then enjoy him with a bit of tartar sauce.

i had always assumed garfield was the inspiration for _bruno_ - fiona clearly has a higher origin.

Oooh! Good thought!

All of that Lasagne would have to make him qualify as Italian Food now, right?


Ooh! Another problem... I'm a Vegetarian Dragon (Link to BtB Archives), whilst the Garfield eats Lasagne Bolognase - which has meat... So I guess that rules the little furball out...

What about you, meathead? :evil:

Oh, I'm pure vegan -- if by that they mean "huge concentrations of fatty meat and meat by-products and by-products by-products."
