Gye Greene's Thoughts

Gye Greene's Thoughts (w/ apologies to The Smithereens and their similarly-titled album!)

Another one to try out on your friends. The Linux King and I came up with this. (The Linux King a.k.a. "Captain Linux" is distinct from Old Roommate.)

Instead of "n'est pas?" or "eh, wot?" or "desu-ne?", try using "dot-com?" at the end of a sentence to make it a rhetorical question."

Example: "It's a nice day, dot-com?"

Falling inflection on the "com."

It'll really bug your friends. But also increase your nerd factor by several points.

If I were you, I wouldn't take such advice from the Linux King given his penchant for accumulating and overusing such phrases. The latest of which has started costing him money...that's right...a buck for everytime he either uses the word "Cleophus" (or any permutation thereof) or says "I'm Batman" in a husky voice. Life is about constraints, and the vocabulary police will eventually catch up to you as well if you take on this little habit.

Heh! Is this M?

I don't understand the "Cleophus" reference.
