    I guess, since the timestamps are the same, the order of the posted replies is all down to the number of stripes on the sleeve! <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Sheez...that didn't last long!

    Alan, it's not the amount of stripes on the sleeve. It's more about the amount of pips on the shoulders! <img src=/S/salute.gif border=0 alt=salute width=15 height=20>

    But surely <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">agape</span hide> is only 2 syllables.

    Lyra

    You are correct, for one meaning of the word agape. The other meaning is actually a Greek word.

    See here for both meanings!
