Kaboobly doo! I have since found that Larry is also capable of much kaboobly doo.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

They have darn few references to "kaboobly doo" usage in its true form.

Are you sure its first use wasn't when Newton was asked to comment on Leibnitz' work?

Are you saying that bobbym did not invent it?

Difficult to say.  Many English words have changed a little as they travelled across the Atlantic.

I think it is a variation of:

Post 75 asks the question in a decent manner. He is not insulting anyone there.

Where did this come from and what date?

The post that post 75 refers to no longer exists so I won't comment further.

Re: I just found the definition and first usage of Kaboobly Doo

That came from the "Make Assumptions" thread. Since it is so huge, I cannot find the exact post or the quote.

I do not think it is bobbym. It could be some ardent bobbym fan. I cannot wait for bobbym to come online

Re: I just found the definition and first usage of Kaboobly Doo

I have searched for every instance of the word 'born'.  Apart from the one just now, the only other of interest was a comment by you in response to bobbym's.  It seems the post has gone.  But if you search for kaboobly doo it goes back to 2010.

Re: I just found the definition and first usage of Kaboobly Doo

Only bobbym knows that. (Unless reptiles have modified his memory)

The first occurence of Kaboobly Doo is supposed to be post 1.

I need my memory to be jogged. Gilligan was Tee's brother, no?
