If we're resorting to whales falling out of the sky, I'd rather be a bowl of petunias.

And I don't think the Greeks believed in reincarnation.

That's ok, they didn't name their literary devices in Latin either, and that hasn't stopped us.

so, am I in the right place for an argument? Or is this abuse?

Whales are just low tech submarines.
If you're ever in an argument and Entropy winds up looking staid and temperate in comparison, it might be time to cut your losses and start a new thread about something else :)

Funny you should mention argument versus abuse.  I spent 10 minutes before class today arguing/explaining to one of my classmates (who is from California) why California isn't real.
It was one of the highlights of my day.  :)

I think they're not real, partially because of the adament letter about sock with sandals that appears every semester in the Daily Universe.

For the record, that moron Californian is what made me INSIST on wearing socks with sandals for several weeks out of the year.

That's not why I think it isn't real, but that's fine.

California: Land where the temperature is always perfect, everyone makes tons of money and everyone wears designer clothes and looks like (either) Brad Pitt or Pamela Anderson.  You can go to the grocery store and see imaginary people like Wesley Crusher, or a movie star, (who we all know only exist on the big screen, or in tabloids.)  40 minutes to the mountains and 40 minutes to the beach.

No way in toast that kind of a place can really exist.
