Just finished "Idoru" by william gibson.The main character has a laptop with a cast aluminium case made from reclaimed soda canswirh semi precious stones as switches and buttons and reclaimed ivory keys. I suppuse its possible to do, but difficult... but wouldnt it be deadly? Anyone ever tried that?

How would it be deadly (other then the casting of metal)?

I think "deadly" is a good thing. Like "wicked" and "sick" seem to be these days.

(Good grief, I sound old, don't I? Oi! Don't you dare click reply to agree with me!)

You defin- I mean, not at all! How old are you, anyways? 24?

Weren't the terms originally Cool ;-) then Rad (short for radical), then awsome, then back to cool again.... .....um, ok forget I wrote that. ;-)

words of exclimation: ( as cronologically as I know) cool bad rad bodacious awesome tubular (old school, surfer/skater) word cool sweet sick / sickness nice! Cool seems to be the staple exclimation word but they all recirculate...... the up and coming word of exclimation is Swag example: Thats pretty swag man........or.......... I'm feelin' swag today

I think I fell in the awesome generation. Reminds me of Bill and Ted

oh I forgot wicked in there somewhere........ and there are lots of variations .... like ill = sick ...... well actually thats the only one that comes to mind but there are others I'm sure

NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, you're totally hip, young and rad, or whatever pedantic little phrases are being boserved these days. *heh...he'll think he's young all hte way to the post office to collect his pension...heh heh heh.* What we really need to worry about is if I start sounding old.

happy birth day to you, happy birthday to you! Happy birthday dear Kiteman!!!!!! Happy birthday to you! how old are you now, how old are you now?

You know, I forget... ... ? ... ... nope, it's gone ... ... what was the question again?

You know, I forget...

Oh does THIS remind me of something LOL
Me specifically....


If you don't mind, which part? *I mean apart from the obvious.

Well....the voice, it sounds familiar, and the name, it rings a bell......now where was I........................ ............................. .............................. ............................. Oh well.... LOL

ARRGH! HIYAH!


Strikes karate pose, chops at empty air, suddenly feels like Cluseau not finding Kato.

Dammit, I wish you young whippersnappers wouldn't sneak up on me like that!

AWWW!!! (I was referring to alzheimer's, but I guess you forgot)

I agree with you. no I'm not even half your age. =)

If I remember rightly, not even a third... :-(

ok guys here it is ..."deadly" in ireland means as you guessed...is cool or rad or having the "Wow" factor...It reads strangely but spoken it is right to my ears..We also use lethal in the same context ..A deadly car means a dodge charger..A deadly album means Ziggy Stardust...A deadly meal means Mussels in white wine...you get it...
