Martyk is a handsome fish.

This dolphin is delicious.

<Sgore> Martyk, mentally I always picture you as like, our forums bartender.<Neoadept> I've always pictured you trapped in a tuna net

Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Basic ArithmeticThe math practiced by the Suldija is quite different from that of our own. Having four manipulators, each with six digits, the Suldija picked up on a system which utilizes a combination of base six and base four. Like a normal base six system, the digits proceed upward until the number five is reached, at which point a new numeral is added to the left and a zero is placed besides it, so that the number six would be represented as "10". However, when this new counter grows to twenty four, the entire number is set back to zero and a one is placed to the left of it, separated from the zero by a figure which, in the Suldija's language, represents a division of words. While twenty five in our system would be represented as 25, in the Suldija's arithmetic system it equates to "1 1" (note the space between the digits).The Suldija also perform simple arithmetic functions differently. The Suldija's language lacks the linking verb "to be", and so an equivalent to the equal sign did not come about until later on, when algebraic functions came into play. Instead, two different numbers are separated by the Suldija character which attaches prefixes to words. This is then placed next to the Suldija equivalent of an arrow, an outward-facing half-hexagon, and the function performed is dependent on its position. 4/2 = 2 in English would be represented as 4(combined w/ 2) ==> 2 (For the equation on the right in the diagram, opposite of multiplication, I accidentally put a subtraction sign instead of a division sign.) 4*2=8 would be represented as 12(eight in binary) <== 4(combined w/ 2).

Oh come now, Lurk.The internet is a magical place, where linguistic and dialectic possibilities are endless. Why not embrace those variations and see where they lead you.

There is, of course, a difference between having a laugh with someone, and having a laugh at their expense

OK, both of you die and let us know what happens.

They don't have any ready made, but I'm pretty sure you can make one.Draw a line of three square blocks in a row (either vertically or horizontally). Highlight them. Press Shift+G. A new block should pop up in the "My Bricks" section. It'll probably look the same as the regular square, but shift click on it, then click on the left and right (or top and bottom) sides to erase them (leaving the middle one). The result should be what you're looking for unless I've misunderstood.
