You have all sorts of people in this newsgroup. I, for example, enjoy South Park but never watch M-TV (not since *Beavis and Butt-Head* ended).

I haven't watched MTV (note proper spelling, Ray) since 1991, when I used to watch Yo! MTV Raps! and, occasionally, The Real World (actually, I might not have watched The Real World since 1989 I think I saw the first iteration of it). I get the sense that MTV doesn't show videos anymore, and hasn't since the early 1990s. I've watched like one or two episodes of South Park but fail to understand the appeal of it.

Oy! You mean you liked* Beavis & Butthead, but not *Daria*? If you people *still* need an example of the kind of "gayness" that my generation objects to (which, according to some of your more recent posts, some of you still do), Daria provides a pretty good example. Daria is a typical Gen Y teen, who is disgusted by the "gayness" that she sees around her, *everywhere she goes.
Others no doubt watch neither South Park nor M-TV.

Why do you write "MTV" as "M-TV"?
Some are linguists of the polyglot variety, and some are linguists of the scientific variety.

Most are just wanna-bee linguists of no* variety, though, Leah. "Writing the dictionaries" my ass! They're, in general, not stupid people. But, they should realize that they don't have to *try* so hard to *prove their intelligence.
Some members are even non-native speakers of English.

Like Bun Mui & Steinar. But, they don't like them.

Some of us don't even know how people who watch either can admit to it in a public forum.

Well, it's better than you, getting off on your Howard Stern!
Cooper:
I told him I didn't think it was too brittle, but that it left my teeth feeling a bit chalky. ... into my mind. He just kind of nodded and ran his tongue over his teeth. Looking for chalkiness, I suppose.

What's wrong with making words up, as long as they make sense?
I think next time he brings a bottle of wine over I'll tell him that it has a disturbing inertia to it. I think he'll like that phrase.

If the glove fits... (I think I made that one up, myself, but I like how it reminds me of the Sienfeld episode; or wait, that was a "bra", wasn't it?)
Dena:

Hell, *I* like that phrase. Quite nicely describes AUE at times!

The AUE? An "inertia"? I don't think so! Estelle Getty's stool has more of an inertia than the AUE!

No *** way!!
I get the sense that MTV doesn't show videos anymore,

That's why you had to get MTV2, starting in 1996. Though, technically, by time most people had it in 2002-ish, IT too had stopped showing videos. I've still got some good tapes of it, however.
I've also never heard "zorb". I've just got back from Brussels, where I didn't hear it either.

What a coincidence. Last time I was in Brussels, I never heard it either.

That proves it then.
