I make a motion to include Zumbi in the 90%!

Wonderful!  Then, without further ado..................................................

Zumbi, you are a jerk!

After all I have done for you, and you call me a jerk...? Thanks.... Then I know that...

Zumbi, do you know what a joke is?

You have thinner skin than an onion. While she poked at that thread you made all those months ago that was an honest attempt of friendship from Lorraine.

Uh, Zumbi's retort sounded like he was joking right back at the person who called him a jerk to me. Gotta love loss of vocal tonage :P

Unfortunately those three letters make up about a hundred different acroyms, including "political action league" and "parolee at large" (although I guess if you were in violation of your parole you probably wouldn't wear a button announcing that fact . . .)

It is unfortunate but the only chance Rush fans have of agreeing on any song is to choose a song from the seventies (that would include Permanent Waves ;) ).  Once we go past that time in Rush history, things get spotty.  Not even everyone here likes Tom Sawyer :o .

No agreement on anything in the 80's.   I'll prove you wrong!

First heard it on Exit when i bought it new back in the day.I liked it but i wasn't crazy about it mainly because  it could have sounded better and that goes for the whole album.Soon bought AFTK and it blew the live Exit version away.Bought the Sector2 set recently and Exit sounds so much better than my vinyl and old  unremastered cd.Its twenty minutes to the shopping centre from home and i gave Broons,Trees and Xanadu a good blast in the car.Did the same on the way back!

That happens quite a lot. For one thing I think it's easy to misconstrue sarcasm when you can't hear the tone of voice or see someone's face to know if they're kidding or not.

I think it's because no one likes to be misconstrued as being unkind when being unkind was not the intention at all.

That happens quite a lot. For one thing I think it's easy to misconstrue sarcasm when you can't hear the tone of voice or see someone's face to know if they're kidding or not.

True. Happens all the time, on these internets.
