Fark_Guy_Rob: The best way to look at this stuff if with actual examples. Assume today is Friday the 1st. What is Next Friday?
My system: Friday the 8th
Crazy Time: Friday the 8th.

Now, assume it is Saturday the 2nd. What is Next Friday?
Using my system it is still Friday the 8th.
Using 'crazy time' 'This Friday' is now Friday the 8th and 'Next Friday' is Friday the 15th!?! CRAZY!!!


Your "crazy time" is the correct, but it's hard to see in text, because when you say on Saturday the second "Next Friday" there's always a double loop arm sweep that indicates that it's not the upcoming Friday but the one after that.

Gyrfalcon: EVERYBODY PANIC: nmemkha: EVERYBODY PANIC: nmemkha: We don't need some supernatural event to wipe us out when our own greed and apathy is doing such a bang-up job. Add a nice random comet strike or something and cockroach archaeologists will one day discover what a "Bieber" actually was.

I'm guessing that you're probably fun at parties too.

You should see me at funerals.

I was dismayed at your comment. Greed and Apathy are all I have left. Don't let them take it away.

How can you be both? You really want lots of money but you just don't care about it?


Good God, man. Your inate logical abilities leave me confounded! Not sure which way to go anymore. Shall I stick with greed or just apathy?

Oh wait, I forgot my meds this afternoon. It'll all work itself out.

I don't disagree with any of your points. My confusion stems from how I phrase "What is the next 'X' day question. In your Friday the 1st scenario, Friday the 8th is referred to as "up coming". Friday the the 15th is the Friday after.

I find it avoids the whole this/next problem.

Crazy?
Perhaps.

But I'm feeling much better now.

Remember Comet Kohoutek? No? Before it really didn't happen, the predictions of it were offered to me triumphantly as proof of the end of the world, as it was obviously a Biblical "darkness passing over the face of the sun."

Curse my slow fingers.

Need more finging practice.

You're fine. You used "confounded" correctly, and I applaud you.

The mayan civilization ended around 1300. I'd say they were off by more than 1 year.

Oh, it'll burn up in atmosphere and whatever's left will be no bigger than a Chihuahua's head.

But it would be nice to be able to see one of those things clearly some day. The last one was just a smudge and I only got to see it because one of the city bus stations was way out in the middle of nowhere in the green belt. You can't see more than a couple dozen stars and planets down town.

Hey, I totally get this, because I'm a neat freak who can't stand cleaning. You know, because cleanliness is next to godliness, only I'm an atheist.

I for one hail the coming of the conqueror star and imminent rebirth of the storm king.

NIXON YOU DOLT!!!!!: Monongahela Misfit: Anybody want to go shopping for Purple track suits, and trainers? I see our ride is on its way to fetch us...

Purple is so passe. Can we do silver, maybe with some violet piping?


Naw, those look horrible on television -- very hard to light properly.
