How many numbers will follow that peculiar rul...

@GarethMcCaughan i will get back to you. The wait will be worth the while.
Oh, and @hexomino, i already did. You said that you learned something. I'm not a teacher, just a leaky sponge.
And we all get wet.
Bow wow
@humn I am driving by again... for now
You do remember.
I've expanded my vocabulary to "a lot!" and "with all my heart."
English is a b@.
And i learned from the best. Here to tell. With apology.
Can't help it.
Can't help blurting out, that is.
I can help everyone else.
When i bat for myself, it's below average. When i bat for the team, it's home runs.
Behind the scenes and under cover. Until now.
Don't want to brag but this seed is sprouting.
(psychologists are unable to measure my iq and i've been playing it down ever since.)
(every test ran off the board. as you?! I'm in good company.)
It's so easy that i became a slacker.
While helping careers for others.
Voi leipa"!
Butter on toast.
@jafe, learn English from a bastard.
You already know, but there is another level.
Okay, poof.
Or not. Sorry to bother:
Or again.
3:42 PM
And you('re) lucky for that
Each time i try to accept credit nobody believes me. Each time is a struggle.
Life underground.
One of these days i'll have credibility.
Until then i'm just an ass on pavement.
Truly. I was born on pavement in a snow bank. When i'm not solving all the world's problems i am thrown down.
On sidewalks.

humn, could you please stop spamming the Lair with posts that should be in the Troll?
You're essentially turning this place into the Troll. I avoid the Troll because I can not understand any of the communications there. That room has a purpose, as does this one, and the Lair's purpose is not to be the Troll with a wider audience
I don't think you do. You just posted yet another music video
If you want to tangle hit Troll. That was my swan song here.
