Final, here, Audrey. It does work, and I explained how. Neither Jon nor you comprehend.

Again, your assumption I don't understand basic terminology, (i.e. English) really highlights your vitriolic, and quite frankly, stinking attitude.

Because your interpretation requires 'smooth'. And, by the way, you asked about the texture in the form of the 'overcuts' having an affect on lining up the passage. And now you say what does smooth have to do with?
I am beginning to wonder you don't check up on what is being discussed, rather respond for the sake of responding ... with a pinch of rude; parroting what others say, back-slapping agreement when you really don't know why you're doing it (other than thinking you're getting a one-up on others). Can't find a better example of being a troll.
> Pictures on the internet, you don't say!
Yes. Did you find them? I would expect that when someone gives them as reference points to help understand and contextualize a discussion, the normal course of action would be to actually look at them. Have you?

Is it your opinion the 'guys here' are your great depository of knowledge on ancient Egypt? Thanks for the chuckle, Audrey.
