"Ah, lumberjacks are just tree cowboys anyway."
from my eighth grade math class: "throw a potato at it and see which way it runs."
"Are trains called trains 'cause one day someone was like, 'What if we call them trams'?"
Don't judge me, words are hard.
"ok so here's your exam. if my cold body is found in the rain and the test is gone, well, we have a pool of suspects"
"No, they don't teach 'recreational math'. They haven't done that since the Middle Ages, I think."
"Even as a cow she was Lovely"
“And then, as if written by the hand of a bad novelist, an incredible thing happened.”
bartimaeus trilogy? (pretty sure i remember that line from there)
and are the other quotes from lockwood and co.? (guessing 'cause of the ghosts and the general stroud trend, haven't actually read that series yet, haha)
@unknownanonymous: I was not expecting to see another fan of Stroud's books here but yes
(The bit with the cow though is actually Ovid)
i suspected that cow bit was neither of the stroud things, but i wasn't sure. did ovid really capitalize "lovely"?
Well, he was writing in latin but. The english version really depends on what translation you're using, hehe
Ovid, Mary M. Innes translation:
Ovid's Metamorphoses, tr. Anthony S. Kline:
why would the translators sometimes capitalize it? was it deliberate?
Oh, sorry my reply was vague! The capitalization was me by accident and I didn't notice until ya mentioned it
What I meant to say was that he was writing in latin anyway but the english translations nonetheless tend to kinda be different
ah, now i get it! thanks! :D:D:D
"a bear is an omnivore; don't get too close in case it mistakes you for a blueberry"
