    language and its history is a topic for ... history.

    Keep your own thread straight,,,, for a change.
    For a change? I haven't been here for yonks and am unused to the format - thanks for the friendly welcome! Are you going to follow me around complaining about me PACE? Should I leave now according to you?

    The History of language isn't History? Anglo Saxon is not World History as far as America is concerned?

    I didn't know where this thread might go but to me it IS about history -

    Would anyone understand it and is there an old english font? I heard it one time and it sounded like gibberish to me.

    Other than that, I have no objection.

    Why he has such a desperate need of them can only be speculated upon.

    How about a translation for us?

    Speak English, dammit!! Iff'n English was good enough fer Jesus Christ, it oughtter be good enough fer EVERYWON!!

    Does anyone know of any website where I can go and discuss political issues, public policy and current events with people?

    I've always thought that would be a cool idea.

    Like here, but for grown ups
    Thanks from Coyote, PACE, Dangermouse and 1 others

    I have heard that SOME 'hard-core feminists' say that all men should be castrated.

    Believe me when I say that I do my very best to avoid feminists like that.
