Hi . Nice if you to join us. Don't worry of you don't know a lot about wikis - we all have top start somewhere. If you'd like to know a bit more about the site please have a look at our RationalWiki:Newcomers' guide. It'll tell you a bit more about wikis as well.--Bobbing up 10:17, 14 September 2008 (EDT)
Hey! Already I feel less at the fringe, thanks for the friendly greeting, and merry waving face. I will check out the newcomers' guide momentarily.--seventhrib 10:55, 14 September 2008 (EDT)
Howdy! I like your username. Did you know that all the other costae verae (true ribs) have depressions into which their cartilaginous connections fit on the sternum, but the seventh pair of ribs fits into a special slot made by the joints of the lateral border and xiphoid process? This may be why it was popularly known as the rib removed from Adam to make Eve during medieval times. Something that may be helpful, since you say you're new: if you want to reply to someone, you can begin your comment with a colon. This will intent your paragraph by one indentation. Continued conversations means you can just add another colon before each paragraph. It keeps discussions from becoming walls of text. Bon chance! :) --Tom Moorefiat justitia ruat coelum 11:55, 14 September 2008 (EDT)
- I agree that the Hitler Pic on the CP Evolution is wonderfully absurd. But I rather thing that it sets the tone wonderfully for the rest of the article.--Bobbing up 12:08, 14 September 2008 (EDT)
- TomMoore - I did not know that, that's pretty interesting. The name doesn't even come from the Bible (directly, anyway), rather there's a song by The Shins called My Seventh Rib that I was into a while back when trying to think of a username for something, and I found it to be pleasingly inoffensive and mysterious. I wish that it came from knowledge of rib biology, the genuine origin doesn't make me seem at all clever.
- Bob M - yes, rather more effectively than when it was a picture of Darwin. The real genius of it I find to be the picture of Hitler that they've chosen, in which he looks particularly insane. A glance at the article gives the first impression that the Theory of Evolution was originally expounded by Hitler at one of the Nuremberg rallies. Quite angrily.
Haven't seen you around before, Seventhrib! Hi! Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 14:10, 14 September 2008 (EDT)
My condolences on joining the ranks of janitors, Seventhrib. That's right—you are now a sysop!
You have been demoted because you meet the following criteria: (1) You are currently breathing. (2) You are not a vandal. (3) You are a vandal, but are not breathing.
One of these is not like the other...
Here is your bucket, mop, and instruction manual. Try not to go too wild and crazy now! : ) Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 18:55, 9 February 2009 (EST)
Apologies for lumping you in with the men but, really, football: it's one of the reasons I'm here rather than down the pub. and marmite 12:32, 5 March 2009 (EST)
- Heh - that's very kind, but unfortunately your lumping was entirely fair, at least with respect to me being male. I'm strangely flattered that you thought I wasn't. Full football disclosure: I find it rather boring, but when the rest of your family are big Fulham supporters you pick some stuff up. And I know fuck-all about almost everything else discussed here, so when the opportunity arrives for me to be all "nyer-nyer CP is sooo stooooopid" and feel good about myself it's just too hard to resist. seventhrib 12:45, 5 March 2009 (EST)
- It was the name that made me assume that you were female - sorry. I know sweet FA about most of the stuff, but I tend to express my ignorance in opinions. and marmite 13:04, 5 March 2009 (EST)
- I've learned some stuff while I've ben on here too. and marmite 13:08, 5 March 2009 (EST)
I passed it too. I wonder how many other people on here even know what it was? Totnesmartin 17:51, 3 May 2009 (UTC)
- Not many I expect, so hi5. From what I remember of it the MENSA test seemed really similar. I always had a knack for the old "this is to that as such-and-such is to whatever" questions and the ones where you had to read the sequences or turn shapes round in your mind. My IQ is probably like ten million, unless the IQ test involves bloody anagrams. How long ago did you do yours? --seventhrib 12:00, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
