The English "but" is a little hard for me to pin down in my mind. Perhaps it has too many meanings to make a good programming word.
  • I had brown hair, but now it's gray. (both are true)
  • He wanted to go, but had other commitments. (condition modified by 'but phrase')
  • She had but one laptop. (some kind of exclusive emphasis?)
  • -Theo-
    (so many nodes and so little time ... )

    [LanX]: unusual that "Pimp my Bride" never made it into TV (?)
    LanX sighs ... no idea stupid enough
    [choroba]: "Smack My Bitch Up" did, though
    [Eily]: that's the internet for you LanX
    [Eily]: and I'm pretty sure there's a rule somewhere that states that the stupider the idea, the more likely it is to already have been done
