When I click on the number, nowt occurs. Could it be a privilege of authority?

Edited in: I slide my cursor over the thread title and it glows red; I move it to the right and the possibility of cursor action is denied me. I click and get no more than the reprieve in a game of Russian roulette, but without the frisson of relief. However, let this thread slide and you can send me a PM. Sorry.

When I want to be nosy (which is often) I click on 'currently active users' at the bottom of the main page.

Annie, who has more authority than you?

Oh, for a second there, I thought there was fresh interest in the supremacy of Sextus Propertius:

primus ego ingredior puro de fonte sacerdos

I step forth, a priest fresh from a pristine spring!

My favorite Latin pronoun is in this sentence around the dome of St Peter's:

Tu es Petrus, et super hanc petram aedificabo ecclesiam meam.

Petrus es just doesn't have the same ring to it.

Cheers,
John

Ovid was sloppy about all sorts of stuff when it suited him. Not only many dubious facts about Tomi, but sloppy about locations in the Forum Romanum. Timewise, ummmm? Politics, definitely! Glib, smug, and horny as two bats in a cave without flashlights. I refuse to explain that.

heh heh Aaron's math on the first page. Don't know how Allen let him get away with that without elaboration... just to throw something entirely different out there

Wit + Craft = Cleverness
Craft = Cleverness - Wit

Therefore, because craft is equal to two things, we can set those
two things equal to each other:
Sublimity - Passion = Cleverness - Wit
Correspondingly
Sublimity = Cleverness - Wit + Passion
so oddly, passionate cleverness is sublime, so long as it's not witty.

and
-Passion = Cleverness - Wit - Sublimity
which makes sense
take cleverness and extract all wit; ensure it's not sublime
and you have something passionless--totally left brained
but,
passion = -Cleverness + Wit + Sublimity
more intuitively read
passion = Sublimity + Wit - Cleverness
surprisingly that means passion is
sublime wit, or perhaps the wit of the sublime
--> so long as you don't try to get clever with it.
