Disgard and disgarded

Those..... Those aren't words.

Discard and discarded are words. Disregard and Disregarded are words.

Disgard sounds like the negative to Asgard.

Ehhhh, I think it sounds more like industrial waste being used to make a foodstuff, which rules less.

Bizzaro Thor. Benevolent Loki.

I'm into this. I would buy this album. Who wants to make a concept album about this?

That JD tale is both neato and stuff of legend.

But dat $6100 in 1997 tho...There was at least one of them that actually made it to Korea. It was sitting in the window at a shop here under glass c.2001, I think it was priced for W10 million (around $8000) and the economy being so bad, we all knew that it wouldn't move and inch.

lower Manhattan is not representative of what we are talking about. and 2001 was a different Internet era. I think the delineation of old Internet and contemporary Internet was likely 1998. possibly 1999.
