    Re: Regarding Pride and Prejudice

    I have to admit I'm amazed at tmashuk's imperviousness to argument. I wonder what sort of 'research' this is.

    Re: Regarding Pride and Prejudice

    The only research that would have any relevance here would be finding a quotation from the book itself stating that the two men are brothers - but this won't happen, because there isn't one. There isn't one, because as the quotation tmashuk himself has already provided shows, they are cousins.

    There has been only one supposition in this thread so far - in the first dozen or so word of post #3

    Re: Regarding Pride and Prejudice

    When I lived in Cambodia, I called all the tuk-tuk drivers brother- does that mean I have 500 hundred real brothers there? Maybe this research would show that, even when the facts don't.
