The problem she was having was an easy fix, and she got the info quickly, but I (of course) felt compelled to leave this note: "Don't you want a shamrock for that? It should only have three leaves"
Their reply was:
Clover/Shamrock, does it really matter? Clovers are used for Paddy's Day as well. *G*
Now, I have no intention of answering that, but I ask you -
Is it only because I'm a Celt that this bothers me? Is the trinity symbolism, and the fact that the shamrock only grows in Ireland forgotten/useless information?
When did interchangeable mythology become acceptable? Doesn't it make everything meaningless?
persephonesbear, this is especially for you:
Another question asked today was by someone who was annoyed that when they make a border, their graphics program doubled all the math - the example was, with a 100x100 square, when they want to make a 2 pixel border (all the way around) the program makes them resize their graphic to 96x96 when 2 pix should only make it 98x98.....
ok, anybody can have a bad day and end up laughing at it, but when it was explained, the reaction was, in part "How odd."
thought you'd enjoy that.
