My teacher read President Lincoln's Gettysburg address aloud and explained it. Its starts with "Four Score" and seven years... he then explained that a "score" was 20 years. So the first words of Lincolns most famous speech begin with 420!

Actually, this whole speech was misinterpreted, Lincoln actually scored with four bitches the night before, and was totally bragging about it to Evil Lincoln, who was in the crowd.

So like I SAID once to your retard cocksicle loving-self.

I didnt know that fortnight meant 14 days until quite recently. I just always assumed it was a night when everybody built forts.

Lol that's wat I thought when I first heard that. I used to read the Harry Potter books and I had to learn what that meant cause they use it for everything.

It's 87 years ago. 4 score = 80 and 7 years, 80 and 7 = 87.
