Tightly (adv) packed, not dense! Well at least not mentally.

(Just for you, since you love emoticons so much.)

Just mentally dense, just like me...he says lightly flingering the keyboard as his brain cells adjust to the notion of not being light-headedly thoughtless...

But getting back to adverbs ....... Whatever happened to "probably"? I thought it was "He will probably do xyz" or "He is likely to do xyz". Nowadays the usage seems to be "He will likely do xyz." They've changed the usage patterns of "likely" so as to omit the "to"; and they've done away with "probably" entirely.

That's a likely probable, or
a probable likelihood...

probably

VR, do you necropost (new word, found on MR forums a few days ago, I love it!) or is this a Lazarus thread, liable to be revived at any time?

I spend too much time keeping current here, God help me if I have to start going through the archives, too!

BTW it is a great thread.
