RATATATATATATA. KA-BOOM! You're (truly) dead.


As American military forces are trying to disarm Iraqi citizens, the chimp administration, along with the US congress, has decided it's high time to arm American citizens.

As of midnight tonight, September 13, 2004, the 10-year moratorium on assualt weapons -- which the chimp (aka Dumya) promised to extend during the 2000 presidential election campaign -- will lapse. :shock:

Shucks, these republicans sure love those high-powered, ...

Pharr: Lesson 17 (line 19.4)


It's Saturday night and i am studying Greek. Now that is cool!

In line 19.4 of the Iliad, Pharr (and Benner) have e)u/ instead of eu)=. P.A. Draper and greekgeek.org have the latter.

Which one is it?

If it's the former, do I scan it as two short syllables?

Thanking in advance (the usual suspect, of course :D ),

What can I do for a Philogical Project?

For school I want to do a piece of work/some sort of project to show what I've read about philology.

The trouble is that it seems to be the nature of philology (and of how I've learnt about it) that it tends to be very bitty and disjointed - made up of small facts and observations: I find it hard to think of one fairly substantial coherent project I could put together.

I've been reading, ...

H & Q Chapter 3

Just want to make sure I understand what's going on:

I got: The gods did not guard Homer's eyes: they have guarded well books about the excellence of men.
