(?) [UnaBubba]'s foray into anatomical modeling http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Micropenis
NSFW!!!! [MikeD, Oct 19 2011]


       What [UnaBubba] said.   

       Honestly, how can you not see that coming?   

       For the record, I have no idea what [UnaBubba] said.

       That's what [UnaBubba] said.

       I imagine that if you go to the Wayback machine you can find some of his nuggets of wisdom. Also, he does exist as a real person outside the HB.
nineteenthly, Oct 16 2011

       // ...Wayback machine you can find some of his nuggets of wisdom.//   

       I was just there, actually. I followed the link on your profile page, [IXXthly]. Then I got lost, as usually happens on the HB, roaming from idea to user to another idea to another user and so-forth and so-on until I forgot I was still on the Wayback machine.   

       When I realized I was still on the Wayback machine, it gave me a sudden shudder of horror... thinking what might have been, had Zaphod left through the office door...
MikeD, Oct 16 2011

       //does exist as a real person outside the HB.// What? Is this possible?
pocmloc, Oct 16 2011

       No, it's not possible. Now go take your pills and you'll feel better.
Alterother, Oct 16 2011

       what was it I said? I probably agreed with Jesus...
po, Oct 16 2011

       I'm not sure. Who were you at the time?
Alterother, Oct 16 2011

       What [theroberts] said, -.
zeno, Oct 16 2011

       [Treon] wasn't going to not to have said that.   

       Don't fret, [pocmloc]. It is not possible.   

       also; What [UnaBubba] said.

       Once a 'baker, always a 'baker.
zen_tom, Oct 17 2011

       //Once a 'baker, always a 'baker//

Is this right? "Once" implies a point in time where you became a 'baker, but "always" refers to all of time. So, logically, your statement says that you were a 'baker before you became a 'baker.
hippo, Oct 17 2011

       tom baker!
po, Oct 17 2011

       Mr Bun the Baker!
DrBob, Oct 17 2011

       This is like saying *in bed* after every fortune in a fortune cookie!!
xandram, Oct 17 2011

       [hippo] you make an interesting point - I repost thricely:   

       i) Was Leonardo Da Vinci a 'baker? If so, then despite the non-existence of the halfbakery as we currently know it at the time of the Italian Rennaissance, then we must conclude that there is an abstract "halfbakery" to which people can become associated. In the same way a triangle is always a triangle, and doesn't need to log onto the "Triangulationry" (a fictional triangle-themed website) in order to be so determined.   

       ii) While "Once" does often suggest an initial status, from which a previous status can be further inferred, it is also possible for something to happen once, and yet, always have been at the same time. In reference to the triangles above, a shape may be unknown to an individual, who may later identify it as a triangle. That identification event happens "once" - but it doesn't mean that the shape wasn't a triangle prior to its identification.   

       iii) "Once a 'baker, always a 'baker" trips off the tongue far more easily that "Once a 'baker, henceforth, always a 'baker".
zen_tom, Oct 17 2011

       //Once a 'baker, always a 'baker//   

       Agreed. Name changed to reflect this.

RayfordSteele, Oct 17 2011

       //repost vs riposte//, //eggcorns// and //It's under circumstances like these that a well thought-through annotation can become a damp squid.// Well said [Zanzibar] - !
zen_tom, Oct 17 2011

       //So we P dope ideas under the expectation they will be further annode ?//   

       After researching several "Urban Dictionary" websites, I still haven't a clue what you are trying to say.   

       However I have discovered that "Ham Wallet" is a new descriptive for vagina.
MikeD, Oct 17 2011

       Ah, that's a FET-ish thing, so [bigs] is still right. Although he could just be Channeling the spirit of Walter Schottky. But he's a Diode-in-the-wool halfbaker, so that's not surprising.   

       A little Bias is permissible. Who knows what you might Gain ?

       So would a "Ham Radio" utilize VeSFETs?   

       Dah dum dum.

       //Who knows what you might Gain//   

       An avalanche of sinners?
neelandan, Oct 18 2011

       This idea is somewhat baked in folklore. For example, when anecdotes about Charles Martel were re-attributed to Charlemagne, then... something.
pertinax, Oct 18 2011

       What [Charlemagne] said.
mouseposture, Oct 18 2011

       Yes, [score sans one-ly]. After perusing her page, I ventured out into some of her ideas, then clicked on the names of other 'bakers, then followed some of their ideas.... before I realized it I was lost in an unbakery. Had I been shunted into the business end of a total perspective vortex, I might have walked away with a stomach full of fairy cake. And, of course; What [evilpenguin] said.
MikeD, Oct 18 2011

       Wait - [XIX]! I just read on your profile page "I may be gone shortly".   

       I hope that's a matter of personal choice, not medical calamity - and, in either case, that you don't delete your account!
pertinax, Oct 18 2011

       What [lewisgirl] said (btw - I got an email from [lewisgirl] today).
hippo, Oct 18 2011

       What [pertinax] said (not kidding).
mouseposture, Oct 18 2011

       The ghost of [lewisgirl]? If not, please pass on best of wishes and thoughts her way.
blissmiss, Oct 18 2011

       [Pertinax], i won't be gone shortly. I put that there just after [UB] left because i felt i was wasting too much time here, which is what i think he thought himself, but i've now decided it's good practice for writing and generating ideas for stories. I have no idea if that's just my subconscious telling me that and making me completely lost.   

       I looked at [grayure]'s page and was surprised how few ideas there were.
nineteenthly, Oct 18 2011

       Yeah, that's easy for you to say [Ubie]. They don't sell that kind of lubricant here.
MaxwellBuchanan, Oct 18 2011

       That's very kind, but you might want to keep it for yourself.
MaxwellBuchanan, Oct 18 2011

       Why? It's not like he can do anything with it!   

MikeD, Oct 19 2011

       {mops brow}
pertinax, Oct 19 2011

       As [Beep] so eloquently puts it, the "swiss cheese" effect is so profuse here at the bakery, I doubt the implementation of this idea would go noticed at all...
theleopard, Oct 19 2011

       oh my- I looked at that link...(what I said)...NSFW= Not Safe for WOMEN!!
