In looking for something, I stumbled upon this very legit question from Nancy R.
Along with the ____ ____ ____ ____ moronically stupid ____ answers from a bunch of ____ idiots.
I perked up a bit here.
And then, as casually as I could, I got up, walked outside and screamed.
This is rich, you imbecile.
Yet, all that is in your encyclopedias is in the new ones which are actually on CD and take up less space.
CD. How’d that work out for you?
Look at all that has happened and been invented since 1961.
Think of it!
According to that infallible source, Pliny the Elder compiled the first encyclopedia somewhere near the beginning of the first century anno Domini. (Though there’s a case to be made the first– on which Pliny’s was modeled– was set down sometime in the last century before Christ.) So let’s say 2000 years ago. 1961 to 2011 is 50 years. So moronic dudette Lilac informs us that in the 2.5% of years between the first, and her contemporary CD encyclopedia– years not included in a 1961 encyclopedia– a lot has happened. Really?
