I need someone to tell me where I am. I am on a super computer with a psyclinder harddrive. Now, does that sound familiar to any of you? :confused:

Oh, sure, it sounds very familiar. Radio Shack sells 1 terabyte Psyclinder HDDs for $59.99 (after $50.00 manufacturer's mail-in rebate). You're still using that crap 6,000 years from now?

There is only one language and that is english.

This too is "English". It's Old English, the Anglo-Saxon language spoken just 1,100 years ago:

 

Him wæs geandwyrd, þæt hi Angle genemnode wæron. Þa cwæð he, "Rihtlice hi sind Angle gehatene, for ðan ðe hi engla wlite habbað, and swilcum gedafenað þæt hi on heofonum engla geferan beon

"

This is Middle English, spoken 800 years ago:

 

And it is don, aftirward Jesus made iourne bi cites & castelis prechende & euangelisende þe rewme of god, & twelue wiþ hym & summe wymmen þat weren helid of wicke spiritis & sicnesses, marie þat is clepid maudeleyn, of whom seuene deuelis wenten out & Jone þe wif off chusi procuratour of eroude, & susanne & manye oþere þat mynystreden to hym of her facultes...

This is Early Modern English, spoken 300 years ago:

 

In ye name of God, Amen. We whose names are underwriten, ye loyall subjects of our dread soveraigne Lord King James by ye grace of God, of Great Britaine, Franc, & Ireland king, defender of ye faith, e& haveing undertaken, for ye glorie of god, and advancemente of ye Christian faith and honour of our king & countrie, a voyage to plant ye first colonie in ye Northerne parts of Virginia, doe by these presents solemnly & mutualy in ye presence of God, and one of another, covenant & combine our selves togeather into a civill body politick, for our better ordering & preservation & furtherance of ye ends aforesaid; and by vertue hearof to enacte, constitute, and frame such just & equall lawes, ordinances, Acts, constitutions, & offices, from time to time, as shall be thought most meete & convenient for ye generall good of ye Colonie, unto which we promise all due submission and obedience. In witnes wherof we have hereunder subscribed our names at Cap-Codd ye •11• of November, in ye year of ye raigne of our soveraigne Lord King James, of England, France, & Ireland ye eighteenth, and of Scotland ye fiftie fourth. Ano: Dom. 1620

Over the next 6,000 years all other languages disappear from usage and English, the only language left, stops evolving in 2007?

Oh and the reason that English is the only language left is that over 5,063 years it became the most widely spoken language because U.S.A, Canada, and Mexico became one continent. The Mexicans and Inuits had to learn English. Then, South American immigrants had to learn English. So, there is your answer. And don't look at me, I don't know why it didn't evolve.

What, you're suggesting that I should look to Recall or Jmpet to answer questions about your story? Uh...Zech, old boy, I'm looking at you for answers because... it's your story! What a unique concept - asking the author questions about his own story.

 

You brought up the subject of English as being the last language for some reason. Thereafter I pointed out that English, like every other language on the planet, evolves over relatively short periods of time and you suddenly became totally ignorant about the topic that you introduced.

 

A good story teller actually reads his/her own story before publishing it to a discussion forum, anticipates the questions that will come up...and has reasonable answers to the questions.

 

This is another half-arsed Not Ready for Prime Time saga.

 

BTW: Canada, the USA and Mexico have always been "one continent". It's called North America.

I never said you should ask him I said he asked me. I answered him. Noone knows why it didn't evolve.

Noone knows that answer? Like in 1200 hrs, lunch and all that? What, now your suggesting that my PB & J knows the answer?

 

Yikes - this is getting really bizarre. Next thing you're going to suggest that I ask my bacon and eggs for the answer.

I told him, You told him....I got a feeling the whole world could tell him and he would be right here with us talking all about future events from a computer with an inablity to give the time/date.

 

OH WHAT A HORRIBLE FITURE IT IS WHERE THE PROGRAMERS HAVE ROBBED US OF THE ABILITY TO TELL THE TIME/DATE!!! I DON'T WANT TO LIVE!!! I DON'T WANNA SEE SUCH A HORRIBLE EXISTENCE COME TO PASS!!!

 

WOAZ ME WOAZ ME. :yum:
