    But, as you are insane, you don't count. I am sure _you_ find it easier to
    write .761 days than 18 hours, 16 mins but I doubt even you would find it
    easier to think and communicate to others in that manner. ("I will meet you
    in .761 days" is just insane)

    Above is Alt.Astronomy's _X_Report_,
    i.e. the 25 articles with the most replies, in terms of lines,
    5 levels deep, weighted by level, as shown in the Far_Left number.

    Lines beginning with _>_ don't count, deeper quotes, > >, count negatively
    because they're chatting instead of taking the time to paraphrase.

    Replyless articles get increasingly negative scores, based on their age.
    Titles that begin with _Re_ get -100,000.

    -G means _No_ Google record.
    Only the last 5 Message-IDs in the _References_ header
    of the last 3,000 posts were considered replies.
    _No_ other deletions or retentions biased this analysis.
    Phy.TXT is a 1 meg UTF-16 encoded file that demonstrates my scoring.

    Good for you. Its still crappy and slightly insane.Stop cross posting to

    So someone in Sydney might have office hours of 00:00h to 08:00h UTC and in
    London 08:00h to 16:00h UTC and NY office hours would be 13:00h to 21:00h
    UTC. How is that less confusing??
    Okay, then when you land, the first thing you ask at the airport is, "What
    time to people here eat their noon meal, and when is 'normal' working
    hours?". The answer might be, "We tend to eat lunch about 20:00 and the
    bank is open from 17:00 to 01:00."

    Yeah, that's a *lot* more convenient than resetting your watch..... *NOT*

    Seems as if you may have referred to babelfish or similar.
    http://babelfish.altavista.com/tr

    "snarest" is probably double dutch for "asap" and means
    Soon
    Now,
    Any
    Realistic
    Estimate (of)
    Snafu
    Time? -- SNAREST.
    The kids in the back seat say "Are we there yet, are we there yet?"
    and dad says "snarest".

    I suspect "op" is "up", possibly mistranslated by
    Unicode (UTF-7 or UTF-8) or Windows (ISO)

    It's kinda neat, showing the terminator without Arnie Schwarzenegger
    starring in it, but unfortunately it is geared to the geocentric universe,
    the sun is shown going around the Earth. At least the yankew .gov
    bureaucrats put England, the first state, in a central position even if they
    got their physics wrong and joined Einstein's Flat Earth Society.

    | "snarest" means "as soon as possible" (one of several ways to write that
    in
    | Danish, could also be "hurtigst muligt")


    The Yanks like a Danish. All their food seems to come from somewhere
    else for some reason. Danish pastries, English muffins, Italian bread,
    German sausage, Swiss cheese, Scotch whisky....although bagels seem
    to be just bagels and pizza is just pizza. Even their courgettes are
    zuccini.
    It's kosher, though.

    Danish is double dutch, isn't it? Anyway, it's all greek to me.
