    :thinking_face: Post-modern or period relativism and double entendre. Hmm.

    This may well represent fertile new ground in speculation thread topic digression research. :kissing_heart:

    Slang in the late 23rd century, a collaborative speculation.

    Well, my copy is actually the 2nd edition, published in 1965 (got it from my Dad, who used the book in his PhD dissertation).

    But yeah, it's just a little old. Haven't found an equally-useful more modern equivalent.



    I'm looking forward to the rest of Hannibal's Team. The crazy pilot, the badass, the Face. :innocent:

    Well, in Aristeia that'd be Mr. Deadpool, the statuesque Svalarheiman lady, and the Maasai hacker.

    Well it was well worth a second thread, this one only took 4 pages before it completely derailed from Tohaa talk to grammar and vague sexual allusions.

    I think the Infinity news section is actually built on an fast food cemetary

    Dahshat is Urdu (a muslim language from pakistan/india) and means something like terror, fear or dread.

    The silhouette kinda looks like a Zuyong, it has a YJ multi rifle.

    Shame not a single unit in Infinity is not the most badass mothafukah in tha universah... For variety's sake, I was hoping to see something different... like "Tha Kiddies", "The Fat Cops", "Teeny Weeny Emmie & Co" or even "The Devolved Antagonists" (heirs to the CA, since they are the DA!!!!)

    Interesting thoughts from people on apostrophe usage. I asked because I was taught that you use ‘s if a noun is singular, regardless of if it ends in s, and a bare ‘ is only for plurals.

    I wouldn't blame you. Apostrophe use is wildly out of control nowadays, even in mainstream media.

    My take is:

    Daedalus - singular
    Daedaluses - plural
    Daedalus’s - singular possessive
    Daedaluses’ - plural possessive

    Looking online, there are a variety of style guides with conflicting rules.
