Re: [Tlhingan-hol] "Today is a good day to be that guy"

Bellerophon, modeler (

<div dir="ltr">I get that &quot;that guy&#39; overdoes things to get attention. Like Will Wheaton didn&#39;t do when he refrained from saying &quot;Qapla&#39;&quot; to the guy with the tattoo, or the guy with the tattoo was admitting to being for having it. When Will Wheaton said &quot;Today is a good day to be that guy,&quot; he was saying it can be cool to be that guy. There are degrees of being that guy, and the tattoo was cool. Lampshade over the head, not cool.<div>

If &quot;act like a jerk&quot; is the intended idea, don&#39;t we have a verb for<br>
