- We believe in one God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible.
- We believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God, born of the Father before all ages. God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father; through him all things were made. For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven, and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man.
- For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate, he suffered death and was buried, and rose again on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead and his kingdom will have no end.
- We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets.
- We believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church. I confess one baptism for the forgiveness of sins and we look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come.
- We emphasize that the foregoing does not pretend to be an accurate description of everyone who might be considered a leftist. It is only a rough indication of a general tendency of leftism. Amen.
This is when there's certain...uh, what's the word? I don't know! I'm not sure what this means or who said it, but it certainly wasn't me! It was...eh, that guy! Yeah, that guy! Let's go with that. Anyway, you uh...uh, nevermind. Just enjoy some Terminator!
- In The Guy Who Shot Himself In The Ass And Didnt Even Know It is played straight. So straight that it's gay!
- Subverted in I Dont Even Know What The Fuck The Real Dialogue Is!. Kind of funny when you think about it,
- In any Arnold Schwarzenegger film, gotta have some!
- Terminator! The Trope Namer, the Trope Maker, the Ur-Example, and the Trope Codifier! I'll be back! And
- Captain Obvious, Captain Understatement, Captain Oblivious, and Captain Irrelevant
- I hate it when this happens in randomness! I mean, just insane! Take crapping for example, it's kind of funny what red sauce there is.
- Averted in real life...normally. If it does happen, you didn't hear it from me!
- Kodeo Hijima, of course!
- James Madison is the shortest of all US presidents to date!
John Tzetzesnote (1109? - 1180?) was a Byzantine grammarian and scholar who lived in Constantinople. A vain man, he claimed Georgian royal ancestry on his mother's side, and struck out any any other grammarian in the intelligentsia who dared commit a wrong against him - imagined or real. His most important work, the Chiliadesnote is a collection of miscellaneous bits of others' work, valued by modern historians for filling gaps elsewhere in the ancient corpus. Its chief purpose at the time seems to have been showing that he could quote hundreds of ancients, and it seems to have survived more by a fluke of chance than genuine usefulness at its time. He also wrote a sequel to the Iliad, so unimportant as to be virtually unknown. It is called Allegories of the Iliad. Go ahead, Google that. You're not going to find any articles on Tzetzes' work, because Tzetzes was a waste of breath.
Perfection is in the mind that makes mistakes.
I'm a twenty-something British grad student hoping to get a PhD in computational biology. What that is is kind of hard to explain simply, so just know that I like biology and I like computers. I have diverse interests in science (probably because my dad's a professor -_-), from mathematics to musicology, but computational biology is what I think I do best.
I found this site back in 2007 through means I'm not sure of; I guess somebody told me about it? I dunno. Either way, after a brief hiatus, I haven't left, and I probably won't for a while. It's just too interesting here, and there are too many unwritten articles on sixties science fiction novels for me to leave! ^_^
Oh, and about the name - some time ago the interface to a database that I was supposed to maintain kept displaying the name of the fly with this archaic spelling. I spent days trying to figure out why the hell it did that and days trying to fix the bug (do ho ho), and I got so obsessed that my ex-boyfriend gave me "tzetze" as a nickname. It sorta stuck, and it's unique enough, so I keep it. (My real name is "Alex 235 West", because my parents are strange folk. I'm not really a fan of it)
Turned out that the stupid former maintainer had a script changing species names for some other spelling and it didn't know any better. Goddamn.

gard and wan, but very stern, and there was more of wrath than repentance in his singing. Was it fancy or reality? The heart-rending "O bell' alma innamorata!" seemed to be accompanied by distant, half-veiled sobs. No one else appeared to notice them, and I half doubted their reality. The Finale ended; and for a few moments the gay crowd buzzed, and some stood up and looked about at their neighbors. The interval was short, however,—for the Quintette performers came upon the stage, and took their places. I leaned back and covered my face with my hand. My memory was still ringing with echoes of the forlorn cry of wrecked love, mingled with the imaginary sobs I had just heard; therefore I hardly listened to the majestic opening of full, harmonious chords, which lead grandly into a sort of cantabile movement. The curious modulations which followed aroused me, and I soon busied myself in tracing the changes from major to minor, and from one minor key to another, as sorrows chase each other in life. Just at this part of the composition occurs the passage which sounds like a weird, ghostly call or summons: when I heard it, my fancy began working, and, like Heine, I saw spectres in the music sounds.
