    “…BITTEN our tongue.” C’mon Frazz; get with the program, dude. You ARE the resident pedant, correct?

    Heck, I have bitten my own finger when I was shoving french fries into my mouth. That hurt like the dickens!

    But the worst pain I ever induced on myself involved a very pesonal appendage and a zipper.

    A quick search of “past tense of bite” comes up with several grammar sites, many confusing. This seems to be one of the better ones:

    I want to adopt this kid. He is going to be incredibly successful and wealthy, and can support me in the manner to which I would like to be accustomed to.

    Sorry, someone else already wondered that, and apparently the answer is they can’t. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SvxMVzTZC0U

    Jellyfish are kind of like deadlines, aren’t they? They’re an integral, even crucial part of the ecosystem, but you still don’t want to spend too much time too close to them.

    I kind of like them from a distance, though. They’re a strange and primitive kind of beautiful. I kind of have a thing for all things aquatic. We swim similar speeds. And you can’t spell jellyfish without a J, an E and an F.

    I’ve heard, don’t know if it’s true; that scorpions can sting themselves and thus commit suicide.

    Jellyfish can’t sting themselves. It works because jellyfish tentacles aren’t inherently poisonous. Rather it’s the nematocytes__special cells that line the tentacles. When touched, nematocytes fire off microscopic quills that lodge in a victim and pump in the venom. This weapon comes with a built -in safety switch. Chemoreceptors turn the nematocyte on or off. If the receptors pick up the chemical signature of the jellyfish’s own species, nothing happens.
