    I wish I could remember these Monkey Island insults so I can play along. All I remember about that game was having to ask the same sailor the same thing about 50 times to get something (but his response changed every time so you knew you had to persevere). And something about having to get some grog to a door before it melted the cup... oh, so very long ago.
    There's an excellent piece of emulator software out there that'll run these classic SCUM games on just about any platform. You can play them on your Nintendo DS if you were so inclined.

    You sure that book was from 1965 and not 1865?

    "Why, she's such a regular flibbertigibbet, it's like there's an autogyro in her shirtwaist!"

    Are you sure that book wasn't written by the staff of The Onion? The prose reminds me of T. Herman Zwiebel's essays in which he would rant about whipping his manservant and avoiding "the nefarious ro-bot, Mr. Tin."

    Here's some!

    PIRATE: This is the END for you, you gutter-crawling cur! SWORDMSTR: I've got a long, sharp lesson for you to learn today GUYBRUSH: And I've got a little TIP for you, get the POINT?

    PIRATE: Soon you'll be wearing my sword like a shish-kabob SWORDMSTR: My sword is famous all over the caribbean. GUYBRUSH: First you'd better stop waving it like a feather duster

    PIRATE: My handkerchief will wipe up your blood. SWORDMSTR: My name is feared in every dirty corner of this island SWORDMSTR: I usually see people like you passed-out on tavern floors. GUYBRUSH: So you got that job as janitor after all.

    PIRATE: People fall at my feet when they see me coming SWORDMSTR: My wisest enemies run away at the first sight of me! GUYBRUSH: Even BEFORE they smell your breath?

    PIRATE: I once owned a dog that was smarter than you. SWORDMSTR: Only once I've met such a coward. GUYBRUSH: He must have taught you everything you know.

    PIRATE: You make me want to puke SWORDMSTR: If your brother's like you, better marry a pig. GUYBRUSH: You make me think somebody already did

    PIRATE: Nobody's ever drawn blood from me and nobody ever will! SWORDMSTR: No one will ever catch ME fighting as badly as you do. GUYBRUSH: You run that fast?

    PIRATE: You fight like a dairy farmer SWORDMSTR: I will milk every drop of blood from your body GUYBRUSH: How appropriate. You fight like a cow!

    PIRATE: I got this scar on my face during a mighty struggle! SWORDMSTR: My last fight ended with my hands covered with blood. GUYBRUSH: I hope you've learned to stop picking your nose.

    PIRATE: Have you stopped wearing diapers yet? SWORDMSTR: I hope you have a boat ready for a quick escape. GUYBRUSH: Why, did you want to borrow one?

    PIRATE: I've heard you were a contemptible sneak GUYBRUSH: Too bad no one's ever heard of YOU at all

    PIRATE: You're no match for my brains, you poor fool. SWORDMSTR: I've got the courage and the skill of a master swordsman! GUYBRUSH: I'd be in real trouble if you ever used them.

    PIRATE: You have the manners of a beggar SWORDMSTR: Every word you say to me is stupid. GUYBRUSH: I wanted to make sure you'd feel comfortable with me.

    PIRATE: I'm not going to take your insolence sitting down SWORDMSTR: You are a pain in the backside, sir! GUYBRUSH: Your hemorrhoids are flaring up again, eh?

    PIRATE: There are no words for how disgusting you are SWORDMSTR: There are no clever moves that can help you now. GUYBRUSH: Yes there are. You just never learned them.

    PIRATE: I've spoken with apes more polite than you are SWORDMSTR: Now I now what filth and stupidity really are. GUYBRUSH: I'm glad to hear you attended your family reunion.

    Perhaps this was meant as a joke, but just in case not: they are typically allowed to use it, but not to endanger others or to damage it. In many cases this has meant banning skateboard use on the public property because of damage caused by impacts from jumps, or due to complaints from people who were denied access / hurt by reckless skateboarders. It's a common case of the bad apples spoiling something for the more responsible.

    I actually grew up in Marblehead Massachusetts, and there was an Old Saying About Lord Essex, that 3 towns in Massachusetts were named after him, Essex (of course), Marblehead and Athol.

    There is also the common rumor (not sure exactly how true it is, everyone swore to me it was true, but could not find a written account of it) That Marblehead was named after rocks that sailors saw and swore that they were marble, when infact they were just covered in Seagull Poop.

    One last Marblehead factoid, it originally was a Penal Colony Setup for prisoners from Salem Massachusetts.

  • Aiwanei (unregistered) in reply to Aiwanei

    Forgot two other facts, H.P. Lovecraft's town of Kingsport was designed after Marblehead. And when George Washington crossed the Delaware river, it was soldiers from Marblehead that rowed him across, led my General John Glover (who I am related too)

    In English, when forming a gerund from a verb that ends in a silent "e", you drop the "e" before adding the "ing".

    For example, "hope" becomes "hoping", "whale" becomes "whaling", and so on.

    Thus, it should be "saling" not "saleing".
