For instance, while reading The Moon is a Harsh Mistress I found myself writing - and *talking* - in Loonie. Like, skipping personal pronouns and prepositions in everyday conversation. Troubling. Maddening.

Now reading more Heinlen. Something called Friday. Just about everything of his I've read includes plural marriages galore, and much lecherous romping. Starting to wonder whether Heinlen is a sex-crazed maniac. The fun kind, but that aside. ;)

Also, now seriously bothered and honestly terrified by the notion of Quebec making a bid for global domination. o.O

On the contrary, I think Heinlein approaches sex in a much more realistic fashion than just about every other human I've met or heard of.

My exact words were: Starting to wonder whether Heinlen is a sex-crazed maniac. The fun kind, but that aside. ;)

You have this disconcerting habit of missing entire sentences. o.O

Re:
You still suggested he might be a sex-crazed maniac.

Last I checked, crazed maniacs were not "realistic".

You have this disconcerting habit for pretending you said things that you didn't.

Who's pretending? I said neither that he was "realistic" nor that he was "unrealistic". I made a (clearly, *I* thought) jesting and rather farcical statement. He's a writer. People are bound to make conjectures about authors based on their work, whether or not they're accurate or "realistic" conjectures. I imagine people reading my stuff joke (Note: Joke)that I might be a delusional schizophrenic all the time, though last time I checked, I wasn't. o.O
Do they not have hyperbole where you come from? You seem to take a lot of things distressingly literally. ;)

You made the suggestion that Heinlein looked at sex in an irresponsible way, and I said, on the contrary, I think he's more realistic about it than most people, thereby implying that he is not irresponsible at all. A jesting and farcical statement, well, that's fine. I'm sure if I called you a deranged idiot, you'd find it farcical as well! Because this is all in good nature! Ie, ergo, a joke! My, we're thin-skinned.

They definetely have hyperbole where I come from. But you were not exaggerating for emphasis, when you called Heinlein a maniac, because, as you've just said, he isn't a maniac. So it can't be an exaggeration if you didn't mean it. In fact, it would be that you're saying one thing and meaning the opposite. The word you're looking for, is irony.

I didn't want to say poo. In fact, it would be that you're saying one thing and meaning the opposite. Namely, PEE!

You're absolutely adorable when you get mad.

Adorable like a four-year-old.
