Have you ever noticed that people will often start a sentence with the word “obviously” or “clearly” when what they’re saying isn’t? I heard someone give the incorrect answer to a question, beginning his response with, “obviously.” I’m aware that no one is perfect, but that just confirms the validity of my suggestion. Make sure what you’re saying is correct before stating that it’s obvious.

  2. Obviously, you have been carpet shopping with another man before.

  3. Clearly, when I wrote ‘you’ I was referring to Dan.

  5. Obfuscatedly, yes.

  6. Obviously, abrogaticus is lacking in his obfuscation skills.

  8. not to be epexegetical but I like big words that sound important

    Comment by whaleman on October 11, 2002 @ 10:52 am
  9. Are you a big guy that likes big words whaleman? If your name refers to your size- I’d say yes.

    Comment by abrogaticus on October 11, 2002 @ 5:06 pm
  10. why don’t you quit peenging and study more latin and find a name that REALLY means something abrogaticus.

    Comment by whaleman on October 11, 2002 @ 6:48 pm
  11. Peenging? If I knew what it was, I could then attemp to quit. is my dilema not obvious? With regards to your comment about my name, it’s a name, based on an english word with Latin roots. I’m not sure I understand you when you say- ‘find a name that REALLY means something’. Are you implying that the name Abrogaticus has prestenses of meaning something when if fact it means nothing? What does Whaleman mean? Perhaps you are just trying to change the subject.

  12. Now children, if you can’t play nicely . . . . . .

  13. for someone who does not know what to peenge is you certainly do it a lot. Maybe you should try spellcheck also. perhaps there is a breed of human beans who are descended from whales not apes that you know nothing of. touche!

  14. Clearly you people have too much time on your hands

  15. \Peenge\, v. i. To complain. [Scot.]

    I’m sorry Whaleman, if you mistook my inquisitiveness for complaining. I’ve heard of pinto beans, lima beans, and green beans, but never human beans. If you say they descended from apes, you would know better than I. If you say there is a breed of human beans that are descended from whales, again, you would know better than I.

  16. Joshy Or Abrogaticusy, there is inquisitiveness and then there is just plain whining. I accept the apology however, why make it so personal you repeatedly attack the moniker whaleman. what do you have against these giants of the ocean’s deep? and so what if there is a breed of whales similar to men? There are after all mermaids and mermen so why not whalemaids and whalemen?

    Comment by Whaleman on January 9, 2003 @ 1:14 pm
  17. Whaleman,
    The first post I directed at you was simply making light of the fact that you said you liked big words whereas your name happens to be Whaleman. Whales tend to be rather big. Can you see the connection? It was only a bit of light-hearted humor. No more. I would like to point out that the whining first began with your statement, ‘why don’t you quit peenging … find a name that REALLY means something’. When I later asked you, “What does Whaleman mean?” it was strictly a rhetorical question in rebuttal of your previous demand that I should find a name that REALLY meant something. Must a name hold more meaning other than simply identifying a specific entity? My most recent post made no mention of your name. I fail to deduce from these posts, the so-called ‘repeated attacks’ of the name, Whaleman. In the previous post I was chiefly trying to point out that while you attacked my lack of spell checking, you overlooked a grammatical error in your own post. Human Beings are not the same thing as Human Beans. I would suggest that your comments are much more personal in nature with their repeated accusations of complaining and whining, than mine have ever been. Let us not forget your demand that I alter my name because it didn’t meet up to your expectations. Withstanding your comments, I harbor no ill will towards you. I wish only the best for you and your pod.

  18. Thank you Abrogaticus. Sorry for the misunderstandings. According to Roald Dahl Human Beans are human beings. And by the way you can use whatever name makes you happy since most of our disagreements were last year let us move forward and on to victory!

    Comment by Whaleman on January 11, 2003 @ 9:07 pm
  19. I’m with you. “Let’s not bicker about ‘oo killed ‘oo”. On to victory.
