I interviewed for this a few weeks ago. The date of my accident is about 10 years off, but everything else is pretty in order. wink

What do you think?

Well, it is spelled correctly and it means "A subtle or slight degree of difference, as in meaning, feeling, or tone; a gradation."

Next question! tongue

What does it mean in idiot terms? wink



I like the article. I also like howstuffworks.



But it seems all I ever look up is fire related things (the flamethrower article is brilliant biggrin devil )

Posted:Sorry UCOF...I'm used to dealing with Cantus who likes to correct non-mis-spellings! lol wink

FRD..In idiot terms, it's just a teeny difference. So where it is used in the article means that a flame picks up even the smallest changes in the winds that a flag or other methods of detection might not respond to.
I like Howstuffworks as well. They are pretty good and thorough. I have used them for a few things.

I was a bit worried about how it would turn out, but now I think I am pleased.

Sorry, I'm not to bright.

In the main article, you're warning people to be careful when fire breathing, next thing you stick a link to HoP and get people burning biggrin

I like that wink
