Just found something:

People using "new" as a substitute for "young".

As in "This is my newest child". It gives the impression they just bought the child somewhere.

Perhaps you are not aware of the Slumdog Millionaire child sale scandal? Wink

Steampunk is in the eye of the beholder, in the hands of the tinkerer and in the needle of the costumer.

Three words:

It's one of her pet peeves.

Yes, you use those pieces of red string to tie the joints, like roast beef.

(is this bordering on religion? Best stop it before a moderator turns up! Oh, hang on...)

I would say that Kabbala shares borders with Scientology ... Religion is quite a way distant

Hmmmm... Is Xenu hidden in the Kabbalah?

To make a completely innocent religious statement: Cthulhu fthagn!

Hang on, we are no longer grumpy, this has been silly for quite a few posts now...

Considering that the qabbala of the ancient Rabbis is to read the talmud to find the 'hidden' truths within, I'll bet that someone, somewhere, has found aliens there...

As an aside, we get the word 'cabal', as in a secret movement or society, from the qabbala, funny old world, isn't it?

Now isn't that interesting...

In the English Wiki it's Kabbalah, in the German Kabbalah, you say qabbala... I guess it's all part of the conspiracy.

With respect I must beg to differ, the origin of the expression "cabal" comes from the initials of the five men who advised Charles II after Edward Hyde:

Thomas Clifford
Baron Arlington
George Buckingham
Anthony Ashley
Earl of Lauderdale

 
They weren't secret exactly but they were a small influential group working behind the scenes - the power behind the throne as it were

I beg to differ further, it was introduced into English in the publication of Cabala, a curious medley of letters and papers of the reigns of James and Charles I that appeared in 1654, which predates the Cabal Ministry of 1667, to continue quoting from Wikipedia:

Quote
The explanation that the word originated as an acronym from the names of the group of ministers is a folk etymology, although the coincidence was noted at the time and could possibly have popularized its use

You know what I'm grumpy about? The way Violet Rose looks at me
over her glasses like that! I mean, sure I'm guilty. But not of what she's thinking!


O.K., I'll cop to that too! Just stop with the eyes!!!

Well I've worked among the spitters and I've breathed the oily smoke
