Somehow I feel like you are the reincarnation of someone who was here before.

That's ebonics. You are supposed to be linguists (or sort of understand the linqua). can't take a joke? Being paranoid is a serious condition... Unless you like Black Sabbath...

Ebonics is not a language, it's a state of ignorance. One of the key characteristics of ebonics is the misconjugation of the verb "to be" and often combined with the word "fixin'" to indicate the future tense. Also sprinkle in profanity as often as you can fit it in...

Examples:

"What it is, blood?" (how are you, friend?)
"What you be doing, mofo?" (what are you doing, man?)
"We be fixin' to go to down to the sto." (we are getting ready to go to the store)
"We's fixin' to whoop some Carolina ass!" (the sports game is about to begin)

etc...

Ebonics was ridiculed out of the limelight, by the black american leadership no less, several years back when some groups tried to push for it to become recognized as an official language in the US so that it could be used as a language of instruction in schools.

As a "linguist", you understand this.

I live in Atlanta and I work with all types of people. I hear all kinds of accents down here. It wasn't clear. Read that again with a Brooklyn or Long Island accent and you will see what I mean. Given that you are in New York, I assumed it was a 'Vinnie' joke.

I just asked. I didn't say I was paranoid or that it was/wasn't funny. I just asked.

Re: Idnforums Down?

Burns, how is it in Atlanta? here in NY I see signs everywhere I go-"we buy houses and land". Those are, of course, scalpers (don't want to use a more expletive word for it would be a non-publishable .. But regardless, it seems lately people are willing to pay fortunes for anything tangible... waiting (sensing) for a crash? I also collect coins-you would not believe how prices are going up... This is insane and scary too.

Mostly americana (old) 1800-1900 and earlier; all (I try ) uncirculated).I also do have some eye for Latin american ones. I also like the way they are-big and heavy- mostly silver.

I always see those signs. My house appraisal went up 20% in the last year. Not sure how the rest of the market is doing. We have 5 million people, so I am sure many were overextended like New York. Prices are still very high compared to five years ago. I am not looking for houses, so I am truly not sure what it is like.

I only collect domains, and the regging and renewal price is down since 2005. That is a good sign for me! It will be interesting to see if the housing market affects the ASCII & IDN domain market.

I am actually a serious coin collector. Values have been going up for certain types of coins. I recently sold a few coins I invested in for mid-range $xx,xxx. Anyway, sorry - I know this is not a coins forum.
