I talked it over with legal counsel. It seems we CAN get away with just saying "You can't register if you're under 13"... Goddamn COPPA. May whoever proposed the rotten legislation ROT IN HELL FOR ALL OF ETERNITY!

Anyway, you can register now.

He tells me this AFTER I write the personality file. *KICK*.

Of course there's a whole other story behind the damn ubb, it's kind of like unstable chemical materials. Falls apart at the slightest nudge.

I'm tempted to bring up a Dune reference, but I can't quite think of any.

I'm going to have to research this law thing, though. It's sounded weird to me from the beginning.

Just because something's handed down from on high doesn't mean it has to be sensible or reasonable.

Um... It's just "darn tootin'", w/o the "right". And, no, we don't say that. :-)

Yes, well, Yosemite Sam also says "Great horny-toads!" Don't expect to hear many Americans saying that, either. Um... Except maybe in jest... :-)

Uh, Yosemite Sam is Southern. He's a Dixie Man with a Union name. "Yanks" refer to Northerners.

As someone who lives in the south (South Carolina), no, no one says that. Unless they're drunk...really drunk.

Actually I always figured Yosemite Sam was from the mid-west. Kind of like a munchin trigger-happy cowboy. Foghorn Leghorn on the other hand is definately from the south though.

brnoe: Um... Actually, I'm not too familiar w/ his stuff, other than "Space Oddity". :-)

As for "Yank", I was under the impression that foreigners used it to refer to anyone from the US...

Foghorn Leghorn is from the "Deep South". Yosemite Sam is more of a "Wild West" type...
