The guy who writes dictionaries is a lexicographer, and no I didn't have to look that up. Nor do I have to look up the following (Ogden Nash, I think) this is how I remember it anyway:

Lie far apart as lies from love,
And truth from art.

I'm left wondering what other howlers our friend from Toronto has up his sleeve to amuse me.

Hmmm, seems like he has a problem with wealthy folk.

Is the heat of global warming getting to you?
It certainly seems like it, because anyone in their right mind would have accepted their error by now and at least admitted that they learned to spell forty incorrectly.
-
In Old English four, fourteen and forty all came from the same root - feower (meaning four). When you add the equivalent of "ty" to this (which would have been "tig" in old English, meaning "group of ten") that slightly changes the way the preceding vowel is pronounced. Quite early in the development of modern English (and long before the Pilgrim Fathers set sail) this had been reflected in the spelling "forty". The same explanation applies to why "fifty" isn't "fivety".

Well, they heat certainly is getting to me but it has more to do with a stationary high in Bermuda. Fourty degree humidex weather is life threatening and my bike rides are getting shorter as I need a cold shower to cool down after even a short ride.

Take longer rides and lose more weight, you know it makes sense.

How can I accept being wrong when you're unable to prove it?
Forty has been spelt forty for a few hundred years, apart from in the odd backwoods school in Canada, by a teacher who didn't have a dictionary to refer to or simply didn't bother to check one.

31º C here and quite comfortable for me, with just a fan to circulate the air.
Only wimps complain about weather.

NB: The 'humidex' is an index used by Canadian meteorologists to describe how hot the weather feels to the average person, so only Canucks understand it.

Oh, wow. I know a drunk who totally obliterated two cars including his own and a parked one. He survived. I guess that means that drinking while driving is 'safe'. According to the STUPIDEST more IDIOTIC poster on Topix.

With calving you don't get more than a small difference in the endpoint. You don't 'calve' a chunk of ice 2.7 square miles in extent.
http://www.topix.com/forum/news/global-warmin...
-
I objected to calving as a description of the breakup of several square miles of glacier. It is still the wrong term. That is truth, not lie.
http://www.topix.com/forum/news/global-warmin...
-
And breaking away of large blocks of ice or disintegration of large areas of ice sheet can hardly be considered 'ablation'. Look it up, dimwad.
http://www.topix.com/forum/news/global-warmin...
-
By 'calving' the phrase arose because it was a small bit of a much larger mass. Like a cow having a calf. I have seen calving used to describe the breakoff[sic] of large ice islands, but consider it to be a misuse of the term.

That said, the use of words is arbitrary and I cannot say that the public agrees. They tend to use whatever word they can think of in similar contexts and the breakoff[sic] of a large ice island is 'similar' to calving, just on more like 'cowing' where the 'new child' is as big as or nearly as big as the mother.. I think my point has merit but won't argue it. As I said in my explanation..

That I state the truth and shame the devil still bugs Dirtling badly. That he can quote these correct statements as if they were 'proof of insanity' just makes me wonder about his own.

The difference is, every news agency in the world acknowledges not even one person died from radiation after the Fukuyama tsunami while Lesshy is the only person who knows that drunk.

I think you should change your name to

"Clueless at Any Subject"

and write a book about yourself.

Maybe drive around signing autographs in your Ford Pinto.. or maybe a Chevy Corvair..

It would have to be Mr Undoubtably Spelt Fourty for you, and Mr Thermal Pollutant for your other self.

You'd have trouble doing that, I suggest you employ a ghost writer.

Thank you for not suggesting I drive a hybrid or a Chevrolet Volt.

I drive a 23 year old BMW, great suspension and a manual transmission.

Why don't you discuss the issue? Nobody died from radiation released by Japan's nuclear plants.

Ooops. You are correct. My apologies. I must have confused him with some other person or combination of persons.
However, you do not show that HE [Samuel Johnson] has written a dictionary in which Fourty is spelled forty.
So...
Now we can, because Johnson's dictionary is now online, and here is the page you require with "forty" on:

The National Police Agency has confirmed 15,889 deaths, 6,152 injured, and 2,601 people missing from the tsunami but not one death from radiation after the meltdowns at Fukushima.
