Also clumsy, uncomfortable things normally only worn on formal occasions.
Terry Pratchett used it in Reaper Man (1991). One of his characters, Ludmilla Cake, is (to quote the Discworld Wiki) ‘“walking out”, or at the very least going for walkies,’ with a character called Lupine. Ludmilla is human for 3/4 of the month, but turns into a “Hairy wolf thing” at the full moon; Lupine is normally a wolf but turns into a human. The nature of their relationship is… …"currently unknown".
Could be. I do wonder somewhat about the armchair at back right, though…
Because they find it hard to hold on to the soap.
That’s what carts are for.
Came here to say the same thing. That’s how I learned it as well. The version @AverageMoe gave is clearly from someone who didn’t like the idea of “sacks” being in the “how many”.
Except it’s going to overflow eventually. At which point I think, given that there’s no explicit code to catch the exception (I was never a PASCAL programmer) that it will wrap to negative. At which point it will end.
Beat me to it. Gz.
Still wrong. You get your sticks on root 66…
“The Monks of Cool, whose tiny and exclusive monastery is hidden in a really cool and laid-back valley in the lower Ramtops, have a passing-out test for a novice. He is taken into a room full of all types of clothing and asked: Yo†, my son, which of these is the most stylish thing to wear? And the correct answer is: Hey, whatever I select.
†Cool, but not necessarily up to date."

True cool is a state of mind, basically. Anti-cool is still cool.
(Yeah, I’ve posted this before. Sorry. But the wisdom of Sir Pterry bears repeating.)
