someone wish me luck for my greek exams! i have to sit all three on wednesday and i'm sooo nervous, because failure basically means that i won't get into oxford, and there are so few other universities with good classics courses in england.

argh! :@

So, is it true that Greek boys are reared by their fathers?

Old joke:

Q:  Why did the Greek boy run away from home?
A:  He didn't like the way he was being reared.

Q:  Why did he come back?
A:  He couldn't stand to leave his brothers behind.

it's over, it's all over !

it nearly killed me, but i got through my greek exams, thanks to all the luck i got (and a four leaf clover that saved the say). thanks for that, twinkle toes.

but i think i need to follow uillean's example and clear something up. i am female. was it not obvious *fidgets nervously*. i thought the nick made it sort of gender-specific.

the jokes are great by the way, but i wouldn't know much about rearing, which i can only think is a good thing

btw, did you know that in ancient greece, buggery was only a sin if you were passive, rather than active, if you know what i mean. otherwise, everything was fine and dandy!

Well, congratulations.

And, no, I thought you were male. But then, Charisma is another example of someone with a misinterpreted nick. Nicks aren't always dead giveaways in terms of gender (or anything), and I wasn't aware that it was a requirement for females to have effeminate nicks and males masculine ones. Guess it's just part of the mystery that is online life, eh? :)

Yes yes! CONGRATS! And you're welcome, Skylar... see? My new-found background can help all...how spiffy!

...And you can keep the clover ...

Hmm...

If you used (assuming it’s possible to use) selective breeding (or genetic modification if not) to achieve production of four-leaf clover plants, then would they still bring luck? Could you market such luck plants (and imagine the extortion...)?

Or would the Luck Sysadmin revoke the luck quota on the scientists and forever blight their lives?

I wouldn't think so. Those would be man-made, not natural, and the special magikal essence comes from nature.

... and the leprachauns.

and it really works too... eat a bowl of lucky charms and you'll feel jolly all day!
