Laptops have their own batteries that work more or less like an UPS ;)
No matter how powerful one becomes, there is always someone stronger. That's why I'm in a constant pursuit of power, so I can be prepared when an enemy tries to take advantage of me.

Missouri makes us get a safety and emissions test done every two years too. I would've thought you guys were stricter about that stuff.

Doesn't biannual mean twice a year and not once in two years?

No.

But "biennial" would be more specific.

Semiannual means twice a year, as far as I've learned it... my teacher taught me that biannual and biennial was the same thing... :?

Blast, now I'm bored, and I've run out of internet sites to browse...

All humans do is to go to a place, bountiful of nature, and live there. Then the human multiplies and sucks all the wonders there. They move to the next. There is one thing that works the same way as that: a virus.
