    According to Googlism, March is poison prevention month and Burger King's "Month of Action".
    I can only hope that it is mere conincidence...

      Gahh ... you just gave me a case of the "Willy"s. First thing I thought when I saw the poll topic was "lousy Smarch weather!" But it is still 10 months away.

Linaria Cymbalaria is...
by rozallin (Curate) on Mar 02, 2003 at 20:55 UTC
    Linaria Cymbalaria is a European trailing herb with rounded leaves that is often grown in hanging baskets, and is known also as Pennywort, or March.

    So now you know.

    März in German, which reminds me of this lovely beer they have in Bavaria called Märzen, I believe because it was first brewed in March. Even people who don't like beer tend to like Paulaner Märzen because it is oh-soooo malty. But then again, de gustibus non disputandum est.

    Allolex

      As a case of minor nitpicking, shouldn't that be "disputandam"? I may be wrong, though, since it's been a while since I last used any latin (outside of quidquid latine dictum sit profundum viditur, anyway ;)).

      Outside of that, it never ceases to amaze me that there are people who like beer, malty in taste or not. :) But as you said...

        No, it should definitely be 'disputandum' - something like a neuter nominative singular (present) gerundive, if that dusty brain cell in the corner isn't taking the mickey.

      I would guess either "American rednecks" or "European aristocracy".

    March is named after Mars because March is traditionally when winter is over enough for fighting to resume. Which gave rise in the 30 Years War to the saying. Armies do not stand idle in the Spring.

    For better or for worse, Iraq shows that some things never change...

    The month in which, within this year of our lord (2003) I shall turn 30.

    I'm lamenting the loss of my childhood this month, so tread lightly.

      Loss of childhood my butt!!! I'm turning ( technically ) 42 this year and I *refuse* to get older. :)

      There is no emoticon for what I'm feeling now.

        You could always switch to base 11 from base 10 as the preferred numerical representation.

    The month blessed with St. Paddy's Day, of course! Raise a pint of Guinness or Smithwicks and drink a toast to the country that brought us this wonderful day.

        Doh! Aparently Patrick's sainthood is not recognized by the monks. Guess he hasn't brought enough beer to the party. Or maybe it's because the Node Reaper doesn't like beer.
