      at the level of the mono-syllabic, you flunk anyway.

      Essay questions are designed to draw out in some level of detail via language and discussion your understanding of the subject at hand.

      The subject at hand being Discussion, your lack of discussion in relation to Discussion is a significant failing.

      Standard course policy allows you to resubmit one quiz per semester. If you are confident that your performance on future quizzes is likely to improve now that you have enjoyed the experience of your first quiz in this class, then by all means resubmit this quiz in accordance with the guidelines briefly established above.

          [b]Birmingham Small Arms.[/b]

          Yes that’s right they made Small Arms for the British Army and the like. They also made a Motorcycle or a range of them for many years till the British Government rationalist the Economy and bankrupted most British industries so along with Matchless, Ariel, Triumph and a lot of others that where rolled into one company who promptly went broke and ceased to exist in any meaningful way. :0

          UM I don’t know if you looked but that little icon after the OP name is a bit of a give away. Just may be the new site Moderator and as you’ve now upset her anything is possible. 😀

          Wrong icon, wrong address

          by charliespencer ·

          In reply to What little icon…

          I believe that icon indicates the member is a paying for a TechRepublic Pro membership, unlike us freeloaders. Also, the Goose Creek, SC address would tend to indicate the member is not a PTB, although it’s certainly possible to moderate from a remote site. Also note the poster has no Contacts; a new PTB would certainly have other TR staff as Contacts, especially after having been a member for several years.

          .. I am a misplaced Louisvillian… I did live in Louisville for 4 yrs. But moved back to South Carolina (I grew up in S.C.) to be near my Mom due to her failing health. Makes it much easier to take care of her from here than Louisville.

          but seriously… see I have this backwash phobia… I read an article once that says when you get to the bottle of a soda 99 percent is backwash, so not only do I not want to see it but I never drink the last bit either.

          In reply to Diet Coke AA

          even with the Diet Coke habit

          I guess its better than diet Pepsi :0

          you ever try that stuff? When I had to ‘get off of sugar’ (damned Dr. just ruining my Mt. Dew rush(s)) I tried all kinds of ‘diet’, and Coke produces much better diet drinks than Pepsi (my opinion).

          Ooh, I heard recently that Coke was working on a new non-sugar drink using Stevia instead of Sugar 🙂
          The only issue I can see with it is the Stevia aftertaste (if one isnt used to it). Might be worthwhile to check up on though.

          … now I get to blush 🙂

          I’m not fond of diet pepsi at all – it tastes flat, now on the otherhand… if my only choices are a regular coke and a regular pepsi, I’ll go with pepsi, as I find regular coke too sweet tasting.

          I haven’t heard about that new product, I sure hope that doesn’t mean that Coke will be messing up a “good thing” (again)

          I always preferred Pepsi products, until I had to ditch the sugar… Pepsi makes cr@p diet products.
          This is the area that Coke does much, much better in. 🙂
          But now I drink flavored water anyway (mostly) or add flavor to water.

          I agree… Coke makes much better tasting Diet products… Diet Pepsi is just PPPppppPPPpppp~~~~

          I don’t do the flavored water though, afraid I find them too weak, so to speak, kinda like lemonade with too much melted ice in it.

          I used to live on that stuff when I was young and single: potted meat, Spam, canned corned beef, bread, and cheese. Paper plates for the sandwich and plastic knives to spread made doing dishes easy. Beer, of course, comes in bottles.

          Still buy a can of deviled ham every now and then to remind me of what I’m missing, but I never read the ingredients. To steal a line from an allegedly popular radio show, “chock full of p_e_c_k_e_r_s and lips since 1937.”
