I will alert TOC.

This essentially says parentheses within parentheses are fine. Wow, you spent the money on an English degree to be kinda sorta right about something. Worth it! what a stupid argument to have.

I was an English major, too, but it's been a useless degree so far.
like this is a stupid fight but that does not say it's fine, it says to reword the sentence or abandon Chicago style

Quote:
A. If you are bothered by using square brackets within parentheses, either abandon Chicago style (because it does not suit your needs) or rephrase the text to eliminate the need for double parentheses.

God between me and evil.

Did you dufflepudded diphthongs know that our ancestors were all black Africans?

By the time modern Homo sapiens evolved, all humans were dark-skinned.

That's the omniscient wikipedia.

King Lalibela was born at either Adefa or Roha (it was later named Lalibela after him) in Bugna in 1162 AD. He was given the name "Lalibela", meaning "the bees recognise his sovereignty" in Old Agaw,due to a swarm of bees said to have surrounded him at his birth, which his mother took as a sign of his future reign as Emperor of Ethiopia. Tradition states that he went into exile due to the hostility of his uncle Tatadim and his brother king Kedus Harbe, and was almost poisoned to death by his half-sister. Because Lalibela came to power during his brother's lifetime, Taddesse Tamrat suspects that he came to power by force of arms. [3]

Lalibela is said to have seen Jerusalem in a vision and then attempted to build a new Jerusalem as his capital in response to the capture of old Jerusalem by Muslims in 1187. As such, many features of the town of Lalibela have Biblical names including the town's river, known as the River Jordan (Amharic: ? , translit. Yordanos Wenz). The city remained the capital of Ethiopia from the late 12th century and into the 13th century.

Details about the construction of his 11 monolithic churches at Lalibela have been lost. The later Gadla Lalibela,a hagiography of the king, states that he carved these churches out of stone with only the help of angels. [4]

Criminals like Took get off on technicalities. The judge accidentally used round parentheses within round parentheses on his record, thereby invalidating it when Took's lawyers noticed it.

He's laughing all the way to the Ethiopian Pizza Hut (where he will order a (Turabian-style) veggie pizza).

I would say so, you don't even know how to employ parentheses correctly.

It's when you have bad gas during sex, forcing you to hold your farts in until the end.
Once you finish, you quickly run to the bathroom -- asshole clenched -- and let it rip.

the problem with atrocious disgusing deep dish chicago "pizza" is that it lacks all subtlty. It's a gut bomb. An abomination of gastronomy. There are many great things about Chicago. Such as their commitment to NEVER putting ketchup on hot dogs. That's truly honorable. But their pizza is shit, plain and simple.

I've had better pizza in Tulsa
