My Life Verse

God causes all things to work together for good, for those who love Him and are called according to His purpose...

Throughout my life, in all its ups and downs, this has been the one constant truth I can confess.

Oldthinker unbellyfeel.

d4's would actually be "numbered tetrahedrons":

And, Christians have been sometime guilty of being equally hysterical about d20 because of its associations with roleplaying games, which is silly in more than one way:

Hmmm... I think I know what you mean... can you speak a little more "plainly?"... :)

I laughed out loud. California has linked education to gambling for years. Don't even ask if the profits went to education though.
Completely aside from our culture championing New Speak, or that the television's general script guidelines are to not include vocabulary above the 8th grade...wish I was being sarcastic...I often wonder if our country slips into a vocabulary dumb-down tendency because we are a nation of immigrants. English being an adopted language for a majority of families. When we were in Norway we could view the British news-- which is fantastically socially engineered. But even the talking heads, in their banter back and forth, used more complex and flourished English vocabulary than we do in daily life. Even though English is a hodgepodge, it is their hodgepodge. If all Americans spoke Chinese, might it be a less robust Chinese? Just a thought.

What about history...

Alea iacta est

"The [numbered cube] is cast" Julius Caesar

Doesn't have the same impact...

Matt - Excellent...

PMRMoe - curious how, though, when you read the popular literature of the 19th C. that though there are regional dialects and colloquialisms, I think the average guy had a broader vocabulary than we today (except in technical areas). Yes, American English is an evolving tool but that doesn't mean that any word can mean anything we want it to mean.
