"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 Should the English word for noodles be ''lamen'' or ''ramen''?
@sim :O Wait, do we? Last time I checked we didn't... let me check it again. Edit: We do not have R sound, however neither do we have exact L sound either. More like those two combined.

@Sim Sorry if I am wrong; I am basing off the L/R problem with Korean Language; we eat ramens too ;)

I honestly have no idea; although ramen sounds better than lamen.

Interestingly, there was once a letter that represented the "th" sound, such as the word the. It looked like this: "þ", and whenever a word required a "th" sound, they would use this letter.

Actually, the more proper phonetic translation requires a letter with the sounds L and R combined. So neither translations are incorrect; rather, it depends on how you look at it.

comment What is the origin of ZOMG?
Now, as a fellow gamer, I have no time to type in grammatically correct sentences while I am fighting, especially if I am in "All for All". So I give this explanation merit.
