Enough of this childish nonsense, we should ponder much sexier cultural differences, such as that between a demisemiquaver and a 64th note. How long do you need to think about it before giving the answer?


Hmmm...let's see....I need a demisemiquaver amount of time to answer. It's the difference in how long it takes to get knocked up, which is by half? :lol: Or that a demisemiquaver has three bars and a 64th has four bars, so if you go to four bars (taverns) you'd be pretty drunk and therefore a man would unlikely be fit enough to get any woman knocked up.

Now the question: How do we fit this into the subject of piano tuning? :lol:

We don't. We just go madly and irrevocably OT as usual ...

As in "Porgano and Bess"?

BTW, "Bonking" may have a particular meaning across the pond (we add an "i" after the "o" for what I am sure is a similar meaning), "Knock me up in the morning" has a very different meaning over here ;-)


Porgano and Bess...funny!

How did we get started on "knock me up?" Anyway, I know what it means here, but I wonder what it means there? (whisper it to me if it's too risqué...)


It means basically "come by and see me (knock on the door) tomorrow."
