Well... the FT is a bit rubbish if you're after interesting news (or at least if you're after interesting news without an economics lesson thrown in)...

It's not a mystery.
Well how about that, I didn’t know you could do that. Well I guess the mystery is solved. Well what do ya say to hop in the “Mystery Machine” for a new mystery? Teehee

Now this puts you in the category of very friendly forumites.
I'm on the other hand will not be considered as friendly by you since I'm going with Stepurhan's version of non-flashing-avtar. Because the lettering showing.

I don't know what you said, but that's because I didn't read it. I will read it after I write this. That just shows the amount of dedication I have for this thread. No weakling shall kill it. That is not the way of the... Wait, why would I tell you what the way is called? You must find it yourself. Go do that now. Go outside. Don't sit there by your computer like some lazy... Thing.

Ok, fixed.

So I take it the word fourth is only used in the context of the first, second, ... ?

How do you say something divided by eight? Sixteen? Thirty-two? Or something more uncommon like... three?

I kid. You can say a fourth. It's just fairly unusual, in the same way that saying "a second" is more unusual than saying "a half".

Ah. Good to know. I knew that a "normal" note in music is called a quarter, and I thought I remembered some strange word for the eights. Quaver or something like that?

I've made another version, because I can't stand the fuzzyness of stepsie's version (no insult, but I'm a bit obsessive about having pictures without fuzzyness. Sorry. ), so I combined it with Tibsie's concept.
