I like this better because that would mean the site began on my favorite holiday, and I was celebrationg that evening in one fashion or another just a yr and two days after my heart attack. Said site also began with considerable humor if somewhat esoteric.
Ah, so you celebrate my young friend Masha's birthday? She turned 11 this year.

Is she also a groundhog, or merely a GHophile like me?

Well, aren't most kids groundhogs at this age? This one's a Russian, though, so I can't really comment.

Thanks for the research, slava. Interesting to see.
It seems sites have been around forever, but 2005 is not
so long ago.

Re: Flagitious

Postby DavidLJ » Sun Aug 10, 2014 4:19 pm

Flagitious may very well describe the late Saddam Hussein. In the interest of pushing my American friends just a wee tad in the direction of balance, however, let me remind them that the only "weapons of mass destruction" found in Iraq were the helicopters and "agricultural chemicals" supplied to him by the Pentagon.

These were used illegally -- poison gas is a war crime -- in the war with Iran: Donald Rumsfeld had hailed Saddam as our ally out of pique at the Ayatollah. They were also used to kill several thousand Iraqis who had risen up against Saddam: our weapons used against our allies.

Flagitious is as flagitious does.
