or 24.75 pounds a second


Um, did you type "32" instead of ".32" into a currency converter? Because last time I checked, £24.75 is a LOT more than 32¢.
 

(Or $0.32) 

 

I meant 0.2475 pounds, MMM. Also, do you need the condensation you are using today?

Condensation? Are you implying that I have a chilly sense of humor?

This, my dear friends, is why we proofread our own posts, not just other people's.

Too funny - so, Mr. S - did you write the letter yet? I'd be curious to see what type of response you get, if any.

"Condescension," then. Not "condensation." 

How am I being condescending? I looked at your "24.75 pounds" post and thought, "OK, there's something amiss." So I wondered if you had typed 32 dollars instead of 32 cents.

Your statement was correct, but the way you said it was (and is) condescending. I meant to say that in my first statement

How is "Did you type the wrong value into the currency converter" condescending?

just stop, collaborate and listen. This was the condescending line: "Because last time I checked, £24.75 is a LOT more than 32¢."

Does anyone know Ringo Starr's number? I feel like calling him up.


You know his name...a-hard-days-night-ringo-15

He has houses here in Colorado. I go track him down instead. I doubt his number is in the phonebook anyway.

If you want to see a real rip-off, iTunes is selling John Lennon's Nutopian International Anthem as a full-price download. That's four full seconds of silence, folks.


Haha that's hilarious! You just know that John would've loved the absurdity of the concept. What a ripoff - I'll bet you could get John Cage's 4'33 for less.

At the risk of sounding like Mandy Patinkin in The Princess Bride, "I do not think that word means what you think it means."

It's all good Evan. M3 was just having fun with you. To know, know, know her...

I'm looking foward to seeing the response from Apple. Keep us posted (no pun intended).

I know what collaborate means. Your friend did not make it up. Go tell your friend to stop messing with you.

But yes, it was confusing to see "collaborate" used there. So you're suggesting I should "stop, work with someone and listen?" 

And the line about £24.75 being a lot more than 32¢ wasn't condescending. I would have definitely posted exactly that post if, say, Zig were to say that 32 cents was the same as 24.75 pounds. I do not think that word (condescending) means what you think it means. 

Thanks for the clip, Zig. I love that movie! I'll give you an apple and a half.

That's not important. It was condescending and I pointed it out, just as you point out mine and everyone else's flaws

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 I think someone's overreacting and reading things into other things that weren't there in the first place. 

 

Anyway, I refuse to respond to anything mSkct says until he starts saying reasonable things. I'll not let myself get caught in a "MrBig vs. paulsbass" style juvenile argument.

Fine. If you maintain you did not mean it condescendingly then I'm wrong
