must apologize for dragging this noble discussion into the realm of beers. but you must admit beer is MORE ENJOYABLE when strained through a generous hirsuteness/hirsutity
one of these words must be a coined one, which returns us to the original discussion, does it not?

>>i have a beard
william<<

Then I shall blow you a kiss 'round the world, Dear--
prepare thy (presumably non-hirsute) forehead!

And, David--weren't you going to bring a slab to paulb's
party??

No beard have I and beer I detest. Even the smell of it makes me feel ill.

Great minds think alike, Dear!
Prepare any part of thy face thou wouldst prefer to
receive thy kiss upon, and I shall blow one in
thy direction as well!

Well, no, I don't see why I must admit that at all.

If I am drunk enough that I can't keep my hair (or indeed anyone else's hair or beard!) out of my drink, I am drunk enough!

Although apparently it works the other way round and beer makes very good hair conditioner.

Oh, Bridget, that's funny! Yep, I'd have to be way far
gone to drink anything through someone's beard!

And william, you sure do have a way with words! First
hises, and now hirsutity! Are you writing your own
dictionary, O hairy one?

>cyberchondriac - (after "hyperchondriac") a user who always thinks there is something wrong with his computer.

Er, do you mean hypochondriac? a person who is neurotic about bad health? I looked up hyperchondriac, but couldn't find anything. hypochondriac means below the breastbone cartilage, and is a referent to the abdomen, which the Romans considered the seat of melancholy.

Hyperchondriac might be a person who is neurotically certain that he's in good health when in fact he's not.

>Did you hear that the Internet had finally disproved the idea that if you gave an infinite number of monkeys an infinite number of typewriters, one day one of them would write "Hamlet"!

Actually, a computer has produced a sequel to Hamlet, Hamlet II. In its entirety:

Herald enters stage right.

Herald: Where the HELL is everyone?

exit stage left.
