Well Wolf,
your definition proves that you are slicker than me. I couldn't think of a faux word to post that combined hard and erotic without being raunchy. You did, and somehow did it with "eyes".
Good man. smile

There's a way you can post what you want,
even raunchy, JJ, and no one can see it,
without pushing 'open'. I, however, don't
know how to do it. You should look into
it. I'd open it, I often need a good laugh.

cangerous - malignant marsupials -- [like!]


CHANCEROUS - Big Box store for compulsive gamblers; pronounced "Chance-Я-Us"


Luke - and by extension J^2 - I think you mean the "Spoiler" button, the 11th on the Reply box row that starts with the smiley and ends with the little-and-then-big T for changing font size. Like this:
Click to reveal..
It's the letter S with a slash / through it. (Not the S with the _ through it; that's "strikethrough".

Terrific !
I see you learned the procedure for hiding too.
Thanks to wofa, I've got it too. Now I need
to think of something raunchy.

PESTILENS - "Eliza...Where the Devil are my glasses?" (after Prof. H. Higgins) (pron. "glosses")

(Psst...Luke...I didn't know how either. But it's amazing what you can find by Googling. "Write a backwards R" and viola!)

You are sooooooooooo right about that. It is amazing what
you can find by just googling it. I sure wish it had been
around when I was growing up.

But I typed the bit about the reverse/backwards R and
about a hundred items came up which I could never absorb.

I know there is a way (which was discussed a lot of months ago)
about accessing the symbols on the numbers keypad of the
computer typeboard. But I did not save it and totally
cannot figure it out. How does it work, do you know?
