Does anyone know the correct term for two conjoined spheres? Hands up!

Many of you (aMToNW) reacted with kindness to my story from childhood memory some time ago. Thank you for all your messages of support.

But there is always some fucker who has to go one better, isn’t there?

Nothing like this ever happened to me. Nothing like this ever happened at my school. It is all so unfair. God, you are a bastard.

But surely we all have tales like that to tell?

Why only the other Sunday, I was standing in the pulpit when...

A spherical bastard.

Which, I'm led to believe, is a bastard from whichever side you look at it.

I've a nice birch switch here if you're at loose ends.

Madam, whoever told you that my ends were loose is perpetrating an unforgivable slander.

Two conjoined spheres are called handcuffs round these parts (that's "in this neighbourhood", not "around these organs").

My birthday was always in the school holidays. Is that what I missed? Bollocks.

I certainly wish that I had spent my informative years at Naughty-hamshire.

I can't help you with your query as I am too busy with a microscopic, nonlocal response theory that I am developing to model the interaction of electromagnetic radiation with inhomogeneous nanoscale clusters.

We all know that the breakdown of classical continuum-field Mie theory is demonstrated at a critical coarse-graining threshold, below which macroscopic plasmon resonances are replaced by molecular excitations with suppressed spectral intensity and hopefully this will enable me to deduce the price of Tea in China.

the poor boy, an experience like that could scar him for life

It's a Venn diagram.

My God, I could just visulaize it all...my GOD!

My dear Vicus, I am sorry to hear that you missed out on a good spanking by a stripper in your youth. I trust that this appalling gap in your early education hasn't in any way given you some sense of inadequacy in this important area of life experience.

Obviously you'd get spanked more often by strippers if a. You hired some, and b. Stopped eating so much lentil soup.

Vicus Scurra said...

Tom. My life has become more balanced since I met you.
TG - I have been eating lentil soup again - do I get a spanking?
