By quoting me it appears you're asking me the question ... which I assume you're not ?
I assume you're asking the '1andonlyhider' why he's picked Martin's name of Isambard Kingdom Brunel ... I said it was too confusing (shakes head and walks away).
It was a rhetorical question.
"In literature, a rhetorical question is self-evident, and used for style as an impressive persuasive device. Broadly speaking, a rhetorical question is asked when the questioner himself knows the answer already, or an answer is not actually demanded."
The apple does not fall far from the tree.
Quiet minds cannot be perplexed or frightened but go on in fortune or misfortune at their own private pace, like a clock during a thunderstorm.
I hope that I never become famous and someone trawls my contributions on this site looking for the odd post which may be offensive.
Force them to pluralise words by putting apostrophes in, then everyone will mock them as imbeciles!
But you didn't like my name. I'll think of a new one for tomorrow. A footballer, Cosmonaut, Saint, Star system?
Lola banned anyone else on CWDF today? What is wrong with her, is it the same problem Lady G had when she was a mod? Went on a banning spree, banned Mike the Bodger, he's not been the same since.
Probably you are just funning but just in case not, I’ll mention that Lola is a bloke. And not in the Lou Reid sense! Not that it matters in these gender fluid days of course! And he’s grumpy, as you discovered.
Tel - LEM - a - Khus for the thickos that didn't do the classics at proper school.
I wondered why dogless came up with IKB - now I see you have grabbed that. Somewhat suitable.
From now on I shall be using Chain mail. A truely big gentleman, one of my heros.
Ahem!We expect proper spelling here, young flibbertygibbet. Only spelling Heroes may Truly post here. Unless you have a note from your mum excusing you on the grounds of Dyslexia. KO. It upsets young andrew and you really don't want to see that. As for the name changes its irrelevant now anyway, even if it was apt, short and pithy, eg Twat, we still have to type atthe1andonlyhider for Twat to show up. Luckily the autospell fetches it up. I do agree though Isambard Kingdom Brunel is a fine chap. You should emulate him, calm down, now you've played with all the toys of freedom.

naughtyfox: The problem with today is that the government is not restricting our movements and activities enough. We need more restrictions, harsher, and for longer, so people really start taking this virus seriously.
