One has to be a rocket scientist for that.

You shouldnt disturb the melatonin pattern of Yetis this way. They're known to eat men in a multitude of manners if that happens.

You surprised?

Jenny's blonde, a girl, and your friend. Talk about a triple whammy.

On a forum that is predominantly full of Indian men and where you are a celebrity this was bound to happen.

If you have a Mac, ALT-R gets you the symbol.

For a PC, type the following search string in Google, the first hit has all the details "type special ascii characters using keyboard"

Precisely.


OT: Why does TheOne®'s id still shows only 3 posts although she has made more posts than that.

I think he has told her all that she needs to know.

Jenny, we Indians refer to significant others of their friends as "Bhabbi" which literally means "sister-in-law". Now this is not common in Mumbai but very common In Delhi where Hindi is more predominant. "Ji" is tacked on as a sign of respect.

So in Delhi (and other nothern states) you could often be addressed as Jenny-Bhabbi-ji.

becuase posts in Introduce yourself and a few other sections do not add to your post count.

@Vid, hondadude : You guys struggle so much to get the ® sign?
Its so simbble. All you need to do is copy one of Sam's or TheOne®'s names with the symbol, and paste it here. It shows up with the ®.

Guess this skill comes with being in the software profession. The skill of Ctrl C+ Ctrl V.

TheOne®, Welcome, once again.

Navin - thanks for that explanation. Helps a lot to understand And I think that is a nice way of addressing people. We don't have anything like that in German. It is either informal, calling someone by his/her first name (and saying "du" = you), or formal saying Mr./Mrs. ... (beind "Sie" = also you but in the polite form). Sam once tried explaining to me that you actually have three ways of addressing people and when to use which form - now I cannot remember how they are called - but I was very confused lol, it seemed so complicated.
