Is he faking it?

"There are also a number of anomalies that question whether Fossett's plane ever crashed.

A pilot at hotel magnate Barron Hilton's flying ranch near Reno, claims to have seen him take off that day.

According to the pilot, Fossett asked him to prepare the plane for take off, even though he had never allowed anyone else to do this before.

Fossett also apparently claimed he was going to scout for locations for a land speed record attempt, but he supposedly took off with no emergency equipment.

The choice of plane was also a baffling one - a Bellanca Citabria Super Decathlon, which, according to risk assessor Robert Davis said was constructed from a steel and wood frame, but actually covered in fabric, making it easy to dismantle. "

I don't know why he would be hiding.
I wouldn't recognize him he if he were sitting next to me.

It's a common (mangled) phrase. What purpose was served by deleting it?

Chaque a son gout

is mangled French for "each to his own taste". Since Morrison supposedly died in Paris I thought it was appropriate and kind cute.

Translation for those who don't know how to use Google: There's no disputing matters of taste.

No need to use google ...

for those of us lucky enough to have learned Latin at school.

Here in Holland there are several types of high school or college (meant for the 12-17 years old) and on one those (called "gymnasium") the curriculum includes the two classical languages Latin and Greek. That's civilisation, isn't it?

I've seen it both ways; not surprising

In reply to: Nope....

for an idiom. ("You idiom, you!")
In Spanish it's gustar, "to please" (one possible translation). In both languages it's usually used as a reflexive verb: "to be pleased". Me gusta. "It pleases me", not 'I'm pleased.'

Get a life, Hannininanigan! Happy
I know how to spell it, I just don't know when to stop.

Now, many people think "Y'all" is second-rate English,

In reply to: Ya'll want some french fries?

but not so! It's a remnant of the Jacobean English used by the settlers of Applachia and the East. At that time, English had a second person plural- "ye" as in the old bible- and a useful word it was, too. In fact, I have some research here I'd like to share bsaxsszzxy frnfrnfrn ...

Hey! SE won't take my input! I'll get back to you on the research. Don't go away.
