Ah-hah, oo-arr. I need to do some reading...

Also, I work with a Canadian woman who says "EN-velope" for the verb, too. Is that a Canadian English-ism, Bean?
Hi inuodie. I know your question was directed to Bean but as a citizen of Canadia myself, I can't help but shoot a comment your way: "EN-velope" pronounced as a verb is most assuredly not a typical Canadian English-ism. In fact, I'd go so far as to say it's a verbal anomaly. There's my two bits ... cha-ching!

Not me, fishona, I gotta finish my Rocket Scientist degree first...

My word, hev - when you have your degree and have fitted rocket-power to your Subaru I will most definitely travel down-under to see you drive it!! It will be great to see the whole track enveloped in the smoke and condensation pouring out the back of your car.

I was hoping I could bluff that module. It's worked just fine everywhere else.
#84064 10/25/02 09:02 AM Last time I saw you, shona, I seem to remember that you were doing some interesting research on a rocket fuel from Clontarf.

That wasn't Rocket Science, Rhuby - that was Alchemy!
And I'd hope to pass that module with flying colours.
#84066 10/25/02 09:26 AM You passed OK, shona, but I guess your colours were not so much flying as drooping a bit - like those of the rest of us!
#84067 10/25/02 09:46 AM not so much flying as drooping a bit
Yes. Not quite what you'd expect from Rocket Fuel.
But perhaps further alchemical research is required.
#84068 10/25/02 11:35 AM perhaps further alchemical research is required
I'll drink to that!
