Yes I am aware that PM is a direct message sent from one user to another. What I am intrigued is how Jesus is sending messages and the context of the messages. I am assuming here that Jesus refers to Jesus of Nazareth.

Let's just say we all thank Hobbes for being the new Jesus and leave it at that.

Although I am not so sure Jesus ever sent PMs saying re: hey shit for brains! and are re: are you out of control. I think he was a little more phlegmatic in his approach to enlightening the human condition. :lol:

And no I am not going to report him for it, I really don't care enough, it just puts some context on this weird disagreement.

I love your sarcastometer, may I borrow it? I am intrigued by these PMs, what are they about?


Nothing important. I wouldn't trouble yourself. :)

Although a certain amount of tangential discourse and banter is allowed in MB, the same ILP rules apply here as they do on the formal boards... you have all been warned.

There are few persons from the Elizabethan era that we know so much about as Shakespeare, and for sure WS has more written about him, and there is more of a paper trail of Ws that any other literary figure of his time.
There is no positive evidence for the attribution of any of his works for another author.

Actually, no. Shakespeare never existed. Those plays were written by a consortium.

Was this also a forgery?

What if Shakespeare used ghost writers? It is quite possible. If demands on his time increased , his time to write decreased, but, demands for his work either remained or increased. Its his work he just subbed it out. Maybe?

I think the whole Shakespeare didn't write 'em controversy began when some scholars noted that the plays contained a humungus vocabulary, not the typical word choices available to commoners.

Yes, but of course the prejudiced and rather classist assumption from the early Victorian period was unjustified.
The Elizabethan period was a period of cultural growth and population decline. Wealth from the New world was creating more opportunities and a growing middle class was enjoying access to books that their 'high born' contemporaries had less interest in.
WS was part of a new literati benefiting from the abundance of books, and in a profession that was roundly scorned by the "high born", as entertainers.

According to Wiki answers, the average university professor has command of about 15,000+ words, whereas Shakespeare had command of about 60,000 words.

Do you prefer today's fashion with men having baggy trousers which give the impression they were falling down? :)

Jabs I am not even a cougar, That fashion is a bit young for my tastes. Although it is more seemly than the 70s spandex fad :)

I had to read in a dictionary what you meant by cougar.

By the way in the USA do builders have a reputation for showing a bit of their bums as they bend down whilst working, it is commonly referred over here as builder's bum, it is a kind of fashion as well. :D

Carpenter crack, mechanic's breather, there are different names for that little show :) It all depends upon what region you are in. The older they get the more is shown with out care. It cracks everyone up :) :)
The size of the belly decides how much gets shown. We work for a fence company. I am walking to the office to report in, I get a comment from one of the guys " Hey Kris your husband needs to put a fence around that crack." I look over and there is my love kneeling and bending over a tractor repairing it. Yep, crack city. I could only smile and reply that I am just his wife not his keeper, that would be our boss's job. :)
It is nice to know some stlyes are worldwide

Ok but, Shakespeare was a cad and irreverent, You cannot deny our play on words while a tad shoddy are in Shakespearean mode. What would Shakespeare do with the crack? His works influence humor. Come on Magsj, come up with a Shakespearean comment about cracks :) :) You know you want to ;) :)

Oh for god's sake pipe down and take your bans like a man, ok some of them are probably wrong, but let's face it we are all human, they make mistakes like we do. When you get banned stop making it so personal, there is no conspiracy to hate you, you act bad you get banned, it happens, deal with it. Look at it this way, if you are going to get banned and you will, trust me (no one who is remotely human and has emotions can live up to forum rules anywhere ever) do it right, make it a nice long rant, and make it stick, go out with a bang not a whmper. Get banned like you love the smell of napalm in the morning, with ride of the valyries playing. Stop whining about it, it happens to everyone, me more than most. Breathe in that petroleum and orange juice and smile. :)
