Eight immortals

Postby SecretSam » Sun Apr 05, 2020 11:10 am

Happy Sunday, my virtual chums.

Has anyone had their hands on a Joyo Baatsin ?

A switchable clone of the Tubescreamer, OCD, and a bunch of other stuff for sixty-five quid.

(Baatsin means eight immortals, according to the blurb. Which none of us is linguistically qualified to dispute.)

Instant gratification is actually pretty good. It's fast as well.

#2 says it's "deffo not Mandarin, may be Cantonese or Jyutping" (romanised Cantonese).

He is now explaining *all* the differences, what have you started?

Had you considered corporal punishment, or is #2 too old and fit to risk it ?

For the avoidance of doubt: Joyo Baatsin is not (as far as I know) intended to be the nom de guerre of a Thai ladyboy.

He has talked me into the foetal position.

No, that's not fair. He is knowledgeable and interesting and later I'll be glad I know all this, it's just a bit early.

Indeed, “is” should be “are”. :D

Absolutely. He is (singular), we are (plural), ‘us’ is plural so you use ‘are’.

I’m now bound to make Grammatical mistakes in future postings. :lol:
