    Default Have you used GAH! outside the .org?

    Seeing all this commotion about GAH! and its inclusion, or the lack of it in polls, I have come to realize how important it is here.

    So, I wonder how many have actually used GAH! outside the .org. As an answer to a bad question or in emails to people... ANYTHING!

    I use it in everyday conversation. Wherever it's needed, really.

    My use of GAH! is directly proportional to the amount of beer I've had. At the end of a long night, it's about all you'll get out of me.

    On discussion boards at my University. So far no one has asked me what it means. I think it is pretty obvious from context. I might just start using it in public more from now on.

    Imagine if this became a regular part of the english language.

    I used Gah before the org, and by god I'll use it when it's gone!

And therefore I exhort you to consider that now the time is come, appointed to us by God, in which ye may (if ye will) cast off the yoke of bondage, and recover liberty. - John Ball

    I wonder if we can get it crammed into the OED?

    I actually thought it was pretty selfexplainatory, so imagine the surprise I got when somebody asked me what I meant when I answered a message with GAH!

    And I use it pretty often.

    What on earth is wrong with these n00bs? I've seen 'Gah' much before I joined the Org. I think the first place was in Calvin and Hobbes...

    That's the last straw with Wikipedia. Anyone who needs high quality, scholarly information, just tell me the topic. I have access to my School Databases as well as many good Encyclopedias like Groliers, Encyclopedia Americana, etc...

    Of course I've used GAH! I've used it way before the Org. I think I also got it from Calvin and Hobbes. It's a great expression for frustration and disgust at what someone just said or asked!

    I only very rarely use GAH! here at the org. in posts. I have never used it in 'real' life, however. And I dont' think I intend to either.

    I frequently answer polls with it, though. It's often the most appropriate answer to some questions.

    Yeah all the time....










    GAH!
    When I was a child
    I caught a fleeting glimpse
    Out of the corner of my eye.
    I turned to look but it was gone
    I cannot put my finger on it now
    The child is grown,
    The dream is gone.
    I have become comfortably numb...

    Gah is the ultimate interjection in real life! When you don't know whether to say **** or **** or ************ or **** or **** you can always shout GAH!
