Omnipresent

OMNIPRESENT, adj. Ecerywhere at once. That the power of omnipresence, or ubiquity, is denied to mortals was known as early as the time of Sir Gotle Roche, who in a speech in Parliament said: "A man cannot be in two places at once unless he is a bird,

OMNIPRESENT, adj. - How can a bird be in two places at the same time? I'm confused but that is something that is not unnoticed by moist about me. LOL

Being ubiquitous is very much akin to being invisible it seems.

Roche's statement has some weight if it is an entry in the records of Parliament.

I'm not sure about the birds being in two places but for sure I don't know any who is a real bird man.

@ Jim -- "I'm not sure about the birds being in two places but for sure I don't know any who is a real bird man"

I agree. In my opinion, a good travel arranges efficient transportation connections and departures.

Thom, moist around you understand omnipresent birds.

Logo, that's how it seems to me. Take air and poverty for examples.

Nicole, it's getting to be. Good deal.

TLP, you said it.

Quilly, or a sponsored post.

Jim, if you count men who give birds, I know several.

Karen, I wondered what became of that guy.

Cooper, I've heard of those hotels. There seems to be one wherever I'm not welcome.

Excellent, Bear! You bet google has some ideas on omnipresence.
