    Cool, a sign language thread - now we just need the braille thread and we'll be good to go! :D

    Not being a signer, aside from a few simple ones, what exactly are you saying?

    Not at all, I'm just trying to keep the MacRumors' ASL community involved.

    Yes

    Apple Juice in fact, maybe that's why I thought this thread's title "ASL", stood for "Age / Sex / Location", hahahaha that's why I clicked on it.

    Now that says something about me now doesn't it :eek:

    You guys don't get it? Jesus, he's parodying our whole language argument. He knows almost no one is going to understand sign language and he's probably targeting my comment specifically as saying "I want to keep the language alive." If that's what's going on, whatever. But if you genuinely want to keep it visible here, I think that's awesome. Fight the good fight.

    LOL! When I saw this thread, titled "ASL thread (56k beware!)" I thought it was a typo for ASDL! As in the broadband thread - 56k people keep out or visit at their peril! But in fact, it stands for "American Sign Language" and the warning to dial-up users is that it will take a long time to load the pictures!

    That just made my day!

    I'm surprised that he can keep a straight face. :D

    I won't be signing visually here anytime soon as I only know a few nice words and several bad ones.

    I guess it would offend someone only if one of us could figure out what it means... :rolleyes:

    I know what that means "upside down," and a scientific word like that shouldn't offend anybody

    /hopes he's thinking what I'm thinking.
