        Unfortunately, no. Although there is legislation currently pending to create exactly this kind of loophole to the restrictions of the Dork Clause. You can, however, apply the cool points accrued though use of the term "asshat" to future threads and posts.

              Put an innocent Brit out of his misery and tell him what "woot" means.... if anything. Confused

                  All it means with absolute certainty is that the user of the aforementioned term "woot" is probably an uber-geek of the first order who spends way too much time watching Star Trek and playing online computer games in which they proudly slay dragons with their Magical Sword of Dorkdom. For an up close and in-depth exploration of all things "woot," I recommend the following viewing (and its sequels), in which you'll learn how to become "leet," see people get "pwned," and hear triumphant cries of "woot"-ness. Caution - it's not pretty: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zbvI-NA0Jns&mode=related&search= Modified to add the first definition from Her Royal Dorkness' link. I rest my case. Here is "woot" in all its sullen glory:
                  Woot originated as a hacker term for root (or administrative) access to a computer. However, with the term as coincides with the gamer term, "w00t". "w00t" was originally an trunicated expression common among players of Dungeons and Dragons tabletop role-playing game for "Wow, loot!" Thus the term passed into the net-culture where it thrived in video game communities and lost its original meaning and is used simply as a term of excitement. "I defeated the dark sorcerer! Woot!" "woot! i r teh flagmastar!" (Think Tribes) "Woot, I pwnzed this dude's boxen!'

                      Ha, I LOVE your way of looking at things! Big grin What I am the most thrilled by is my big comeback since my previous longest race. I was dead last for my age group in that race and it wasn't really a very fun experience, so to finish so much better for this race--my big goal race for the year--still has me grinning! Smile Every moment of this HM was excellent (with the exception of losing Eryn at the portajohns...I spent the rest of the race looking behind me every so often in the hopes that she would be catching back up to me). Next year I want to do this in under 2 hours...I have my work cut out for me, but I think I can do it if I work my butt off (literally and figuratively) in the coming year! Big grin k
