"Hey, TC, do you realize that you use 'excepted' when you mean 'accepted'? That's what Edge is talking about and I have to agree that you seem to be competing with Brad in lack of clarity on occasions."
--Yes I did use 'excepted' instead of 'accepted' as well as did edge, I appoligize for my lack in clarity at times. Sometimes I subconceously assume that the reader already knows what I am thinking when I make my assertions. I will try to be more careful.

I can see that my considerable talents at subtlety are wasted on you, TC.

he means that if you see a misspelled word in one of his posts, and someone has misspelled the same word in the same way, his misspelling was simply a subtle way of poking fun at the first person's misspelling...

4
or like this:
1

1

1
2
?
just curious.

Guess it was option 1....

One does get cyclically repeating laminae in Julien's experiments.

With 1 being one type of sediment, 2 being another?
