    He should be using inherited-fortune, `never done a day`s work in their life`, `pronounce `Yes` using all five vowels`, titled British aristocracy for ammo. Shoot it and set it alight first, of course, just to be sure...

    I`ve been a bitch all day, Viczko. Sadly, tomorrow I will wake up as meek and tender as a kitten.

    Lionhart, I am curious, how do you pronounce `Yes` with five vowels?

    "He should be using inherited-fortune, `never done a day`s work in their life`, `pronounce `Yes` using all five vowels`, titled British aristocracy for ammo. Shoot it and set it alight first, of course, just to be sure...:

    He IS one of those inherited-fortune having types. The man has his own library of leather-bound books and enough land to through flaming pianos on. Who has that much money AND enough spare time on their hands?
    Really, think it through.

    3 things:
    1.people, stop saying "neat". Its not the 50`s naymore
    2. How is this a quiz?
    3. i guess you pronounce "yes" using all 5 vowels be pronouncing it like "yiiaauueess", like yee-aww-s. the aue as in clause.

    Wow. This is pretty cool. That said, I think the catastrophic self-destruction of the car-flinging trebuchet made by The Barley Pickers on Scrapheap Challenge was more impressive. I can`t seem to find a video of it online though.
