The man doth protest

The tall structure in the center is a part of Peter Paul fortress complex, where Alter Rebbe was imprisoned.

No, the sky is not always of this color in Petersburg. Only when Putin kills especially many oligarchs on the particular day.

s?

e said...

sheesh. he was correcting a typo.

Just like a guy said...

I gathered, but what was the typo?

e said...

I shall leave this riddle unsolved, so that non-mathematicians can also use their noodles.

Just like a guy said...

Sheesh. Just because you don't know what the typo was...

e said...

I know exactly what it was. Don't try that silly trick on me.

Dovid said...

I dont think it was a typo, I think s stands for subscribing.

lol

Just like a guy said...

Dovid, I like the way you think.

Btw, I think this might set the record for most comments to start off a thread that have nothing to do with the body of the post (all right, so CA's first was slightly pertinent, but for argument's sake will say that it wasn't).

That's a bloody red sky. Bloody nice photograph too. Lamposts seem much bigger now than they used to be.

One more piece of municipal officiousness to be ignored.

Just like a guy said...

Altie: I was relying on our local Russki representatives to answer your question, but evidently they have not. For shame.

Modeh: huh?

Anarchist Chossid said...

It would be shame if they did.

Just like a guy said...

You mean, it would be shame to respond to stupidity?

Anarchist Chossid said...

Well, if I said that, it would sound rude.

Just like a guy said...

I'm glad I have less scruples than you.

e said...

trs: fewer scruples, not less scruples.

Just like a guy said...

I have so less scruples, I don't even write good anymore!

e said...

oh dear.

"grammar started to dissolve in on itself and whole sentences began to die."

Just like a guy said...

And thus was the empire forged.

e said...

you're forging your empire on faulty foundations.

Just like a guy said...

You don't forge foundations, you pour them.

e said...

but you forge on top of foundations.

Just like a guy said...

Only if you live in a castle, and are putting up a vast gate. Otherwise most people make do with wood.
