2009??

A 2008 release date would be tricky at this point.

Or were you thinking 2010?  Man, that's an unfortunate thought.
I was thinking of 2010.

Ummm…sarcasm is supposed to be short and quick to the point. Which that post wasn't. So that threw me off. AND, sarcasm is very  hard to deliver and then be understood over the Internet–I believe someone has already mentioned this in one of the various TWG threads. Tone of voice and body language are (obviously) pointless when posting, and so two of the fundamental foundations for a well-placed sarcastic statement are already gone.…

sar⋅casm   /ˈsɑrkæzəm/ [sahr-kaz-uhm]

–noun 1. harsh or bitter derision or irony

That is the most widely used definition. His remark was sarcastic to a point, but more irony.

As far as I know, there is no time limit for sarcasm, not length limit.

See Scrubs: Dr. Cox often uses sarcasm, and it is never "short" or "quick to the point"

also see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sarcasm

That Wiki is a pretty spot on explanation of sarcasm.

What I could not find though, on google or Yahoo or a Wiki, was "12 year old lecturing on proper speech or wit" apparently, it has never been successfully done before.

Yeah, 'cause there're always stuck-up pricks like you who are too arrogant to see the value in what others are saying.

Ask yourselves if it's really worth getting worked up over this.

Then take a deep breath.  Then resume the real topic.

Just, you know... trying to keep the peace.
You can think without acting and you can act without thinking... but which is worse?

actually, I was just pointing out sarcasm. If he gets worked up about it, then he obviously does not understand it. a pity, he seems so smart otherwise.

To get on topic again, do anyone know when/if AMOL will be translated to swedish this year (if it will be released this year)?
Lately the translation of fantasy books dont seem to be done at all. I cant find Mistborn in swedish, or the 2 books in the last cronicles of Thomas Covernant.
Ofc i can read/listen to AMOL in english...but i prefer Swedish.

Well, whenever you 'just point out' something that involves a mistake of mine, you manage to slip in these little digs that really bother me. So from my point of view, I have every right to get worked up about it.

And for the record, just because I do not make a specific note of something in a post does not mean I don't understand it; I have simply not deigned to write it down.

ON TOPIC: I would think that the Swedish version would be published a bit later than the English one…but I'm not sure.

I'm sorry you're getting upset.  I meant my statements to simply be light-hearted fun.  A minor distraction, not hijacking the thread.

Honestly happy, the younger generation has a tendency to get worked up at the drop of a hat. I have a very difficult time with my boys. And their friends are all the same way. It seems they LOOK for an excuse to get worked up/take offense. Not saying we didnt look for things in our day, but not like this generation does. Just the other day, one of my son's friends was over. All I said was "How are you doing?" and he came off with a nasty glare and sneered "What do you mean by that?"

And in what context and tone of voice did you ask that question?  If it was like Joey from Friends, I can see why he'd take offense.  ;)

I think ANY child who is spoken to in a demeaning or otherwise disrespectful way has a RIGHT to get 'worked up'.…

and what about the older generation? Do we not have a right to get worked up when a child is disrespectful and attempts to lecture?

Stumbled onto to this thread after not looking at it for awhile and it seems to have taken a turn for the worse....

mthlhddoc2,

Regardless of age, when a person is right and has a point I think they should feel free to give a "lecture". Age is nothing but a number if you want respect you have to earn it. When you talk down to someone because of their age and don't be shocked when they toss it back in your face...

As for WoT...There is a really neat read-through on TOR's website. Check it out...
