today's tweets in one place

1.
TOEFL wisdom: the Roman Navy can also be called the "Roman Naavi." James Cameron's aliens would be proud.

2.
YES! "...destroyed the enemy sheep" instead of "destroyed the enemy ships."

3.
It's often easy to tell who's a francophone in TOEFL: "It's juste a mythe," they write. Or, "the waited result" ("le r├ęsultat attendu").

4.
No way! One of my all-time favorite 70s B-movies, "The Mechanic," has been remade into a Jason Statham actioner: http://is.gd/iQNdr

5.
A pup and a way.

6.
Lunch: pesto fettuccine with ham. Those who eat kosher, halal, Buddhist, and vegan can start complaining now. Beef tonight for the Hindus.

7.
Stupid portmanteau poetry: Do you combine / your tea and wine? / You drinkin' twine / while feelin' fine?

8.
Genital haiku: bad luck comes in threes / not so with my testicles / I am blessed with FIVE

9.
Story idea: "True Spam," the story of a rich guy/gal who seeds the Net with "You've Won $$$$$$$!" emails... and is really offering the cash.
