From Wikipedia 'cause I'm lazy:

Quote:
L7 is also a derivative term for square. The square shape is made by putting together an "L" made with the left thumb and index finger and a "7" made with the right thumb and index finger.

Wouldn't L7 make a trapezium/trapezoid rather than a square?

It's certainly not a square. My thumbs are shorter than my index fingers, you see...

Actually, it resembles a spade like one may see on a card in a playing deck.

This must be a sign of something.

You obviously never played Maniac Mansion...

"Weird Edsel".

I keep wanting to write "favourite" but firefox always red-lines it and tells me to write favorite..
Is this a American/English difference or am I or Firefox wrong?

English/American differance. The Limeys always put extra letters in their words for some reason.

English/American difference. The Yankees always forget some of their letters in some words.

"Favourite" is definitely the correct spelling.

Yankee Doodle went to town, riding on a pony, stuck a feather in his hat, and called it macaroni.

Were you ever in London town,
where the girls they do come down
to see a king with a golden crown
riding on a donkey?

In Dublin's fair city,
Where girls are so pretty,
I first set my eyes on sweet Molly Malone,
As she pushed her wheelbarrow
Through streets broad and narrow,
Crying, "Cockles and mussels, alive, alive oh"!

Alive, alive oh! alive, alive oh!
Crying, "Cockles and mussels, alive, alive oh"!


Now she was a fishmonger,
And sure twas no wonder,
For so were her mother and father before,
And they each wheeled their barrow,
Through streets broad and narrow,
Crying, "Cockles and mussels, alive, alive oh"!

Alive, alive oh! alive, alive oh!
Crying, "Cockles and mussels, alive, alive oh"!


She died of a fever,
And no one could save her,
And that was the end of sweet Molly Malone.
Now her ghost wheels her barrow,
Through streets broad and narrow,
Crying, "Cockles and mussels, alive, alive oh"!

Alive, alive oh! alive, alive oh!
Crying, "Cockles and mussels, alive, alive oh"!

A foggy day in London Town
Had me low and had me down
I viewed the morning with alarm
The British Museum had lost its charm
How long, I wondered, could this thing last?
But the age of miracles hadn't passed,
Fooooor, suddenlyyyyy, I saw you there
And through foggy London Town
The sun was shiiiiniiiiing everywheeeeere...

When I was just a little girl
I asked my mother
What will I be?
Will I be pretty?
Will I be rich?
Here's what she said to me:

"Take off my clothes you big pansy!!"

"Oh soldier, soldier, won't you marry me,
with your musket, fife and drum?"
"Oh no, sweet maid, I cannot marry thee,
for I have no clothes to put on."

When I was a young boy,
My father took me into the city,
To see a marching band.

He said: Son when you grow
Will you be the saviour of the broken,
The beaten and the damned?

And will you defeat them
Your demons and all the non-believers
The plans that they have made.

Because one day I'll leave you a phantom
To lead you in the summer,
To join the Black Parade.
