    Your "not a Shakespeare" quote is a line out of "Hamlet". Guess who wrote that play?

    btw, it's "The lady protests too much, methinks." spoken by Queen Gertrude.

    Or, maybe this: The lady doth protest too much, methinks. Hamlet Act 3, Scene 2, if you really want to get technical. :conehead:

    I guess you want to yank my chain when I have always been very respectful to you, I have always been a fan of the old English language, from that era, that was my intention, not a quotation, people commonly talked that way.

    Had I been quoting a play, I would have looked it up and quoted it correctly.

    If this comment is directed at me, you can relax. I'm way over my head to even be a participant in this thread. I just thought it ironic that the person who corrected your quote did so with another one that appears to also be inaccurate. It's what passes for humor on a cold rainy day at 4:30 AM.

    No, it was not directed at you, the person I was speaking to has met me in real life, that lets most people here off the hook.....

    I get it - I started a remodel/addition to my home when my first grandson was born. He is 14 and I'm about 95% finished with the original project...and I have been retired for a year.

    Just a quick though here. If you do decide to ACTIVELY engage a bad guy under a terrorist or any other type of attack make DARN sure that you are in the right and not witnessing a bunch of undercover cops executing a warrant or similar situation or that there is any chance of one of your bullets hitting ANYTHING but a BG...........



    That is a bit far-fetched.

    What are the chances of anybody making a wrong decision like that? :roll:

    I've got no problems with that. Doc made a quick comment that reminded me of the "Lady doth protest" quote from Hamlet, during the "mousetrap" play scene. He said that his statement was just a passing fun reference to Elizabethan lingo which I thought "okay" and let the matter drop.

    Some folks however got nitpicking and jumped on Doc for whatever I cannot really understand. Give the guy a break, okay? This wasn't a Shakespeare contest. Doc made that clear and I was down with that.

    No Buford, it was not incorrect, someone said I quoted Shakespeare when I had not quoted anyone, I was using old English or Elizabethan lingo as Sam explained,

    Your advice is sound since you have so much experience dealing with your malaise, does it help with your constant PMS symptoms ?
    Or do you take something else for that ?

    What does that sound like?

    I have read Elizabethan literature, spent some time in Elizabethan homes, slept in Elizabethan beds, sat in Elizabethan furniture even eaten Elizabethan food but never have I heard Elizabethan lingo.



    DoctorWho wrote: »
    ....... old English.....

    Now that is a very different kettle of fish and well before Elizabethan time, about 300 years give or take.

    That is an early form of English that was spoken and written by the Anglo-Saxons, close to Old Frisian and Old Saxon.

    How about that for 'nitpicking', my mate. :devil:

    PS.

    And try not to be a 'clod', that's a good chap.
