I've just noticed your signature and I have a question. Which is correct, according to what really Sokrates said?:


[face=spionic]Oi)=da ou)de\n ei)dw=j[/face]

or yours?

I don't know, having seen both of them.

I think it's the one i use. I believe so because the antithesis is expressed in a great way!!!! We have two nouns totally opposite used in two sentences that one defines the other!!!! GREAT CONCEPTION

I know one thing, that i know nothing!!!!!

hmmm

I just noticed that [face=SPIonic]Oi)=da ou)de\n ei)dw=j[/face] is very neat due to the assonance of d and o (as it sounds in anciant greek). Now i have the same question as u......




God i love this when it happens
