    If you want to say “a continent is the total area of interconnected landmass(es)” then Europe, Asia and Africa are all one continent. But I don’t see many saying that Eurasia and Africa are NOT two separate continents. I’d say that there’s a small enough of a connection between North & South America to call them separate, just as there’s a small enough of a connection between Eurasia and Africa to call them separate.

    She has to GET the leaf, first. So she can be bossy til then.

    Actually, MOST logical would be YYYY/MM/DD. If you do it that way, ANY list of dates becomes automatically self-sorting when looked at date-wise, and it’s very simple for a computer program to tell which date was earlier or later than another simply by comparing the two numbers (ignoring any / or – separators.) Just as an example, I do a lot of photography. My photos are sorted into subdirectories on the computer that are named “yyyy-mm-dd” for the date they were taken. The default sort order for a listing of directories on the computer is “sort by name” and using that default automatically sorts the directories chronologically (of course I can change the sort order manually but this way I don’t have to worry about it.)

    But you can work it out so you pay NO taxes if you’re rich like a certain person with a spray-on “tan” and a bad comb-over……

    I, II, III, IV, V, Vi, VII, VIII, IX. IX is not in alphabetical order and in fact would come before V. So if you use the subtractive method, then only the first 4, I, II, III and IV, are in order when considering all nine as a whole (and IX would come after IV and before V.) But when considering only the first 8, they do all follow along nicely.

    What irks me is the people who spell it “Stephen” but want to pronounce it as “Steven” (instead of “Ste-fen” or “Ste-fan.”)

    Old Mister Johnson had troubles of his ownHe had a yellow cat which wouldn’t leave its home;He tried and he tried to give the cat away,He gave it to a man goin’ far, far away.

    But the cat came back the very next day,The cat came back, we thought he was a gonerBut the cat came back; it just couldn’t stay away.Away, away, yea, yea, yea

    The man around the corner swore he’d kill the cat on sight,He loaded up his shotgun with nails and dynamite;He waited and he waited for the cat to come around,Ninety seven pieces of the man is all they found.

    But the cat came back the very next day,The cat came back, we thought he was a gonerBut the cat came back; it just couldn’t stay away.Away, away, yea, yea, yea

    He gave it to a little boy with a dollar note,Told him for to take it up the river in a boat;They tied a rope around its neck, it must have weighed a poundNow they drag the river for a little boy that’s drowned.

    But the cat came back the very next day,The cat came back, we thought he was a gonerBut the cat came back; it just couldn’t stay away.Away, away, yea, yea, yea

    He gave it to a man going up in a balloon,He told him for to take it to the man in the moon;The balloon came down about ninety miles away,Where he is now, well I dare not say.

    But the cat came back the very next day,The cat came back, we thought he was a gonerBut the cat came back; it just couldn’t stay away.Away, away, yea, yea, yea

    He gave it to a man going way out West,Told him for to take it to the one he loved the best;First the train hit the curve, then it jumped the rail,Not a soul was left behind to tell the gruesome tale.

    But the cat came back the very next day,The cat came back, we thought he was a gonerBut the cat came back; it just couldn’t stay away.Away, away, yea, yea, yea…
