Are you saying that your next child will be a bear? Perhaps a Russian bear?

Well, farming is pretty funny, however, I'm pretty sure he meant farting.

Are you sure? I was pretty sure it was farting. At first I thought it was fuming, but he is the only one doing that (and fuming didn't have enough letters anyway).
On the other hand I dont think farting on yourself is funny...
Maybe he's talking about whoopy cushions?!?

Well I certainly would if you hadn't already betrayed me with another publisher, but that's another matter.
This test says I have to have another child, and my wife will have no more than two. She's a fierce monogamist, but I have to keep my date with destiny.
I'd even agree to letting the child learn XML, as long as you promise to teach him to say "moose and squirrel."

Michael,
How does one become a fierce monogamist ? Not that I am interested in that sort of puritan behavior.

So how do you plan to hide this thread from her?
By the way, according to this test I have to find two more fathers for my kids...

No need to hide that which is not being sought.

Eggscellent...

Eggscellent? Is it a fierce monogamist accent? Or should I say "eggscent"?

Actualy finding other fathers wouldn't be such a challenge, if some of the smartest guys did not demonstrate their obsession with coin rolling lately... Do not want my kids to inherit addictive behaviour, you know...

I'm sure she meant "any other addictive behaviors", Justin. The kid will already have enough to deal with.

Michael, they already discuss how to name our child!
BTW, I would prefer Natasha

Seymour: whassamatter, did Mother reduce your allowance?
Natasha, our little komenka. Then it's settled. And you can burn rope anytime you want to, but only along its axis. None of this pitch-and-yawl demon talk that some people try to foist around here.

Ok, Michael, I did what I could for you. The kid demostrates some bad heredity in his reading preferences, but it must be your fault.

When M.E. first arrived at the Ranch, people were falling at his feet - he being one of the Trimurtis of the Certification guide.
But then he walked into MD - and now we know he's human, all too human

Eek. Well if no one considered me human/mortal/fallible before, then my work here couldn't be more important. It;s just a book, you know... ;-)

Was the typo inserted to provide further evidence of fallibility?
> {rimshot} ???
A sound made by striking a drum on the rim. Often used as accompaniment to stand-up comedians - a drummer does a rimshot to punctuate a joke just told by the comedian. Doesn't necessarily indicate a good joke, but at least, an attempted joke.

Semi-colons where apostrophes should be, in my writing, are usually a sign that I am not only fallible but also late getting out the door to work or a tai chi lesson. As if the errata sheet for RHE shouldn't have told you something long ago. :P
I confess my original intent was to use the onomatopoetic "badumchish!" in lieu of the correct industry term. However, I anticipated and sought to avoid the excess posting this layer of presentation implied (i.e., "What is 'badumchish'?" "The sound a rimshot makes." "What's a rimshot?"... ). I hoped clearly against all odds to factor this tangential axis out, thereby reducing two egregious rotations to a reasonable one for admittedly orthogonal motives. Needless to say if I had both used "rimshot" and defined it in the same post, it would have killed the moment. Jim does this kind of work so well I could not in good conscience preempt him from it.
(If you're hearing a rimshot in your inner ear right now, thank me later!)

In one of the other threads, someone asked "do chicks dig guys who write technical books." Clearly, the answer is a resounding "NO!"

Oh Thomas, you haven't been paying attention at all, have you? It's not a matter of quantity, but quality.
