I wonder how many people will think 'isn't evo psych' weird and how many people will think 'aren't humans weird.'



Come on Zach, you need a better QA team. "I'm about to get to romantic part"? "I wonder how many people will think 'isn't evo psych' weird"? You can do better.

(if anyone didn't catch it - it's supposed to be "to get to the romantic part" and the closing quote should be after "weird" and not after "psych")

Perhaps he means "I wonder how many people will [weirdly] think 'isn't evo psych' [...]"

Ending a sentence with 'isn't [thing]' and nothing following is pretty weird.

So... I tried registering here over a month ago just because I felt a tremendous need to know: what is this expression "blade was fell"? The Internet at large seems to know nothing of it.

Not an expression. 'Fell' is an adjective here meaning "fierce, cruel, terrible; very destructive, deadly". 'Swift' is also an adjective, but you already knew that I think.

Thank you for making me look this up, I actually didn't know about that meaning of 'fell'!

Aha! There do seem to be references out there to "fell blade" in various works, so I suppose this wasn't just a case of randomly jabbing at a thesaurus.
