"You should have called yourself Phonics The Hedgehog. That would have been something. As it is, you're way too Sega for this room." - Robusto


"'God help us!' said Holmes, after a long silence. 'Why does Fate play such tricks with poor helpless worms? I never heard of such a case as this that I do not think of Baxter's words, and say: "There, but for the grace of God, goes Sherlock Holmes."'


'“There's an east wind coming, Watson.”

“I think not, Holmes. It is very warm.”

“Good old Watson! You are the one fixed point in a changing age. There's an east wind coming all the same, such a wind as never blew on England yet. It will be cold and bitter, Watson, and a good many of us may wither before its blast. But it's God's own wind none the less, and a cleaner, better, stronger land will lie in the sunshine when the storm has cleared."'

comment Why do eleven and twelve get unique words and not end in “-teen”?
...Our counting patter is quite fine. Korean counting pattern goes like this: one two three... ten-one, ten-two, ten-three... twenty-one, twenty two, twenty three...

comment Word for a quote that was never actually said
@gmcgath Not to nitpick, but in the sense that fictional characters can say anything, then we can attribute any certain words to a character claiming that they have said those words as quotes; In all 60 Sherlock Holmes books by Conan, Holmes never actually says "Elementary, my dear Watson", unfortunately.

comment Should the English word for noodles be ''lamen'' or ''ramen''?
Unrelated; however I was taught that Japan invented ramen first because of recurring famine. Is this correct?

@Sim yes, more like that. On the further note, we should probably stop commenting; system is giving me warning.
