I dated a Finn for a while (parents emmigrated) and he had what I call a dour sense of humor. Name was Nevelainan (sp?)

We have occaisional black outs here but it's no big deal I'm sorta set up for no electricity.
Blather, when I read 'two blackouts' I thought it meant you passed out damned.gif glad to hear that's not it.

yuh it was a bit ambiguous, unintentionally. I just type away, don't always see the multiple meanings. It hit me later people mighta thought I fainted or something similar.

The English language has so many hidden meanings and double entendres, one doesn't keep up with it all. It's a hideous language, full of guile and trickery. I'm deeply sorry that it has become the international language, but I had no control over that. I'd prefer a simpler language for international-speak.

LOL yeah, it's mainly the fridge you have to worry about, the lights and the heating well I gotta fire and candles, but uh we went without power for 5 days here once, that was a few years ago but yeah everything in the fridge spoils, had to throw out a lot of rotten meat (or cook it fast, on one of those camping stoves). I actually got a payment from the electricity provider (it's in their contract) for the lack of electricity.

Context is eveyrthing with English. Meaning is established by context, that's why it's such a horrible language. ugh I hate it.

On the other hand I think it's great to have a common language so we can all communicate regardless of location or original language.
