    Faster I vote a resounding yes. SE was needlessly maligned. Post him right now on that Bread and Butter thread.

    Oh Yes, Oh Yes FasterPussycat (wink, wink), gee I sure hope that somehow, someway, you'll be able to contact Super-Ego (wink, wink). I hope he hasn't gone far, far away (wink, wink). We need him back to liven things up and counter the stale bs that floats around a few of these threads. Please tell us that you'll be able to conjure him up from the abyss (wink, wink).... :cool:

  7. mu /moo/

    The correct answer to the classic trick question "Have you stopped beating your wife yet?". Assuming that you have no wife or you have never beaten your wife, the answer "yes" is wrong because it implies that you used to beat your wife and then stopped, but "no" is worse because it suggests that you have one and are still beating her. According to various Discordians and Douglas Hofstadter the correct answer is usually "mu", a Japanese word alleged to mean "Your question cannot be answered because it depends on incorrect assumptions". Hackers tend to be sensitive to logical inadequacies in language, and many have adopted this suggestion with enthusiasm. The word `mu' is actually from Chinese, meaning `nothing'; it is used in mainstream Japanese in that sense.

  9. cretin /kret'in/ or /kree'tn/ n.

    Congenital loser; an obnoxious person; someone who can't do anything right. It has been observed that many American hackers tend to favor the British pronunciation /kret'in/ over standard American /kree'tn/; it is thought this may be due to the insidious phonetic influence of Monty Python's Flying Circus.
