       Half Baked - we done this one before.
DrCurry, Jul 14 2002
  

       Couldn't find it? Gotta link?
dare99, Jul 14 2002
  

       Too lazy.
DrCurry, Jul 14 2002
  

       Fibber, I've had a look and couldn't find it anywhere
dare99, Jul 14 2002
  

       I stand "partially" corrected. The idea of a HB birthday is mentioned the symbiotic ideas idea but not proposed as a full idea.
dare99, Jul 14 2002
  

       and how would you know, since you have been here for 4 days. any advance on 4 days?
po, Jul 14 2002
  

       I think I just passed 6 months quite recently. Feels like forever though. (in a good way)

       Why?

       //You haven't been around very long either, Doctor, or is the date on your profile incorrect?//

       I'm convinced otherwise, hence the smile.

       Earlier today, I was quite pleased to see swissmiss disappear at the same time I was commenting on swissmiss's "Geek" idea. If it was a Moderator that booted it to oblivion - have a beer on me. Just think - there'd be a whole 6-pack if the "other" trolls would get the boot *sigh*

       <bah humbug>Birthdays, half or otherwise... oh yes, let's celebrate whatever the significance of the earth's orbital position in relation to life events, as ascertained against our invented calendar concept. I have never and will never understand the basis behind birthdays.</bah humbug>

       waugsqueke: Ooooh, who's been lighting the candles on YOUR cake, then ? (Or didn't you get one ?)
8th of 7, Jul 17 2002
  

       I have not observed my birthday in a great many years, Mr. of 7. I keep track of my age only because some services, such as insurance companies and the government, insist on knowing it.
waugsqueke, Jul 17 2002
  

       waugsqueke: Ooops, seems like I've touched a nerve there <tiptoes away>   

       What puzzles me is that some forms (often medical ones) ask for both your age and your date of birth. Now, the date of birth seems to be the relevant item; with an knowledge of that, and the current date, one can calculate by a complex arithmetic technique known as "subtraction", the person's current age. Putting your current age on the form seems a bit redundant, and the information is perishable as it only tells them how old you were when you filled in the form, not how ould you are now. What would they do if you put a date of birth and an age that didn't match up ? Would their little hard-wired accounting brains self destruct, I wonder ?
8th of 7, Jul 17 2002
  

       [8th] is there any group of individuals to which you do not belong that you credit any intelligence to whatsover? I have never seen a form that asked for age and d.o.b. although a life insurance form etc may refer to the age at which you indeed agreed the terms.

       Only a year and a half, UnaBubba? It seems so long. So terribly...terribly long.
DrBob, Jul 17 2002
  

       Why thank you Sarenka. I've never been so... moved.   

       I'm not sure what's worse... the card, or "Waugie". <cringe>   

       {spoonerism} How much is that Waugie in the dindow?
waugsqueke, Jul 18 2002
  

       The one with the daggly whale?
