quoiquecesoit asked: it's not a paradox, it's a metaphor

Okay Mr. Green.  Whatever you say.

Two scientists walk into a bar:

"I’ll have an H2O."

"I’ll have an H2O, too."

The bartender gives them both water because he is able to distinguish the boundary tones that dictate the grammatical function of homonyms in coda position as well as pragmatic context.

‘I know these will kill me, I’m just not convinced that this particular one will kill me.’

clientsfromhell:

The following occurred over the phone when a client had a minor issue with the site I built for him.

Client: Hi, the margin between the logo and the content is wrong. Can you simply change it while I’m on the phone?

Me: Sure. Did you want the margin to be bigger or smaller?

Client: Can you increase it about by 50%?

Me: Sure. How’s that?

Client: No, that’s not right. It’s too much. Can you decrease it slightly?

Me: Sure. How’s that for you?

Client: Sorry, it’s still not quite right.

After ten minutes of "a little more" and "a little less," the client tells me it’s spot on.

After they hang up, I realized that I had made a mistake. I had been viewing my local copy of the site, and they had been viewing the live version. I never once uploaded the changed file.

what happened in roughly 1870 though
why was there temporary internet
with a few people searching for pokemon?

It’s a search of Google books, but the question still stands, what the Fuck happened in 1870

I CAN ANSWER THIS!!
In the Cornish dialect of English, Pokemon meant ‘clumsy’ (pure coincidence).
In the mid 1800s there was a surge of writing about the Cornish language and dialect in an attempt to preserve them with glossaries and dictionaries being written. I wrote about it HERE.


Cool!

Okay, so that’s one part

I’m pretty sure Neil Cicierega said he faked this post in the first place???
