    Looking at news to hand, the Poms have tanker troubles in the Straits of Hormuz so Boris could just beat him to it.
    The Poms are doing Trump's bidding, so they could end up in a proxy war for him. Our local moron is brown-nosing Trump too.

    Sorry, this doesn't belong in a Site Ideas thread.

    It's therapy. What happens if he sticks around for 4 more years.
    World War 3. He may just manage it before election day anyway.

    “One small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind”

    Apparently Armstrong did say “a” man.
    In the recently remastered audio the "a" is quite clear, at least to an Australian listening in 2019 to an American. It was doubtful in the original, but back then I hadn't heard a lot of American accents ...

    Glück, das mir verblieb (Marietta's Lied), Marietta's aria from Die Tote Stadt

    Glück, das mir verblieb,
    rück zu mir, mein treues Lieb.
    Abend sinkt im Hag
    bist mir Licht und Tag.
    Bange pochet Herz an Herz
    Hoffnung schwingt sich himmelwärts.

    Wie wahr, ein traurig Lied.
    Das Lied vom treuen Lieb,
    das sterben muss.

    Ich kenne das Lied.
    Ich hört es oft in jungen,
    in schöneren Tagen.
    Es hat noch eine Strophe--
    weiß ich sie noch?

    Naht auch Sorge trüb,
    rück zu mir, mein treues Lieb.
    Neig dein blaß Gesicht
    Sterben trennt uns nicht.
    Mußt du einmal von mir gehn,
    glaub, es gibt ein Auferstehn.


    Joy, that near to me remains,
    Come to me, my true love.
    Night sinks into the grove
    You are my light and day.
    Anxiously beats heart on heart
    Hope itself soars heavenward.

    How true, a sad song.
    The song of true love,
    that must die.

    I know the song.
    I heard it often in younger,
    in better days.
    It has yet another verse--
    Do I know it still?

    Though sorrow becomes dark,
    Come to me, my true love.
    Lean (to me) your pale face
    Death will not separate us.
    If you must leave me one day,
    Believe, there is an afterlife.


    To anyone who has unexpectedly lost a life-partner.

    Only if you get rid of that creepy avatar.
    Seconded. We'd prefer not to be reminded of this individual.

    How do I initiate a new message during a game?
    On the right side of the chessboard there's a CHAT button.
    Warning: try to avoid long ingame messages because all you've painstakingly typed will disappear if you bump or click something before you've clicked the OK button.

    Sometimes being nice is just too difficult. 😼

    A note on word usage: except for a certain poster on this site, I haven't heard the word "silly" used by a grownup since about 1960. I think it's nowadays quite meaningless. What's silly to one person is quite rational to another. What's it mean anyway? Unintelligent? Wilful? Aberrant?

    Nobody got your RYX!



    RYX
    ArchaeopteRYX, of course. I've had that word in my head for decades, along with ornithorynchus and pterygium. Must be something about RY that sticks in my brain.

    DNA - an Australian animal.
