The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

“If you, as a white person, feel that I matter so little within the context of what I create… you’re colonizing my poetry.” Jasmin Kaur


Quote II

"That would be absolutely foolish, inconsistent, and hypocritical. Those who believe that Bill Clinton should never have been impeached for allegedly lying about his sex life are now going to lead the campaign to impeach Kavanaugh for allegedly lying about his sexual and drinking activities back when he was a 17-year-old? It's hypocrisy run rampant." Alan Dershowitz


Quote III

“I do my high IQ meetings before lunch. Like anything that’s going to be really mentally challenging, that’s a 10 o’clock meeting.” Jeff Bezos


Quote IV

"Mine is a most peaceable disposition. My wishes are: a humble dwelling with a thatched roof, but a good bed, good food, milk and butter of the freshest, flowers at my window, and a few fine tall trees before my door; and if God wants to make my happiness complete, he will grant me the joy of seeing some six or seven of my enemies hanging from those trees. Before death I shall, moved in my heart, forgive them all the wrong they did to me in their lifetimes. One must, it is true, forgive one’s enemies—but not before they have been hanged.” Heinrich Heine


Quote V

“The world is watching,” Powell said. “They cannot believe we’re doing things like separating mothers and children who are trying to get across the border from south of our border. They can’t believe we’re making such an effort to cease immigration coming into the country. It’s what’s kept us alive! Colin Powell

Wow. Talk about a MoMe, hope there is plenty of Ibuprofen, black coffee and penicillin available.

A controversial four-day sex fest offering "unlimited" drug and booze-fuelled orgies with prostitutes is making its return after sparking outrage last year.

Sex Island promises two "latina" women for every man, live sex shows, luxury yacht parties and "surprises" - all for nearly £5,000.


It all goes down on a "drug-friendly" private Caribbean island where men can have "unlimited sex", swap partners and fulfil their sexual fantasies while partying "like a millionaire", say organisers

Cats. Hamilton. Hillary and Clinton, the next big Broadway spectacle.

No, this is not from The Onion.

And yes, suddenly, getting a root canal doesn’t seem so bad.

Via Hollywood Reporter.

….Laurie Metcalf and John Lithgow, both two-time Tony Award winners, will team up on Broadway to play the power couple who have been a prominent part of the American political landscape for the past quarter-century in Hillary and Clinton.

“It’s funny and smart and intensely theatrical and, I think, very moving,”

So is a prostate biopsy.

The Bon Scott story.

On the night of Feb. 19, 1980, Bon Scott, frontman for the Australian rock band AC/DC, climbed into the backseat of a parked car in London. Scott had always been a heavy drinker, even by rockstar standards. On this particular night, he’d been indulging his habit in a local club.

There are a few hunters here at the AoSHQ. If you're planning an elk hunt. Let's be careful out there.

Over the course of this limited study, grizzlies do in fact follow elk hunters. At one point, a grizzly followed within 100 yards of one elk hunter, however the elk hunter never reported seeing it. As it appears, grizzlies follow elk hunters downwind and off to the side of a trail that hunters take.

The ONT Musical Interlude


October 9, 1940, Born on this day, John Lennon singer, songwriter, guitarist, The Beatles sold over 20m singles in the UK (1962-1970), and scored more UK & US No.1 albums than any other group. 1967 'Sgt. Pepper's' is the UK's biggest selling album ever. In 1990 Lennon's song 'Imagine' was played simultaneously in 130 countries to commemorate what would've been Lennon's 50th birthday. He was shot dead in New York by Mark Chapman on 8th December 1980. via thisdayinmusic.com

William F. Buckley opines on the song "Imagine".

Imagine there's no countries

It isn't hard to do

Nothing to kill or die for

And no religion too

Imagine all the people

Living life in peace.

Well, we certainly want to imagine a world in which everyone lives in peace, but you see, that is only possible in a world in which people are willing to die for causes. There'd have been peace for heaven knows (assuming heaven existed) how long in the South, except that men were willing to die to free the slaves, and Hitler would have died maybe about the time John Lennon did, at Berchtesgaden, at age 91, happy in a Jewless Europe. There have got to be reasons that even affected John Lennon to prefer one country over against another. I happen to know this to be the case, since a long time ago he asked me to help him get papers permitting him to live in the United States rather than in Great Britain.



October 9, 1948, Born on this day, Jackson Browne, singer, songwriter, (1978 UK No.12 single 'Stay', 1978 album 'Running On Empty', 1982 US No. 7 single 'Somebody's Baby') via thisdayinmusic.com

A scientific break through for men?

A group of scientists believe they’ve uncovered at least some of the genetic risk factors that can contribute to a common health concern among men: erectile dysfunction. Their findings, published Monday in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, have possibly identified a specific place in our genome linked to the distressing condition.

Erectile dysfunction affects one-fifth of men over the age of 20 in the U.S., according to a 2007 study. But the chances of having it go up as men age, and men who have conditions like cardiovascular disease or type 2 diabetes are also more likely to experience it. Scientists have long suspected that genes play a role in erectile dysfunction, based on studies of twins. But it’s been difficult to find exactly where this added risk could be in our genome.

This Lutheran is happy with Wells Fargo Bank. A certain Catholic Nun isn't.

The same Philadelphia nun who demanded Wells Fargo's board call for an investigation into its September 2016 fake accounts scandal is questioning the company's ethics following its recent decision to work with a major gun manufacturer.

California, a gun grabbing state.

“Another California law allows police to verbally ask to confiscate a gun rather than make their case in a written request. Under “red flag laws,” guns can be confiscated from citizens who’ve never been charged with, much less convicted of, breaking any law. And it’s getting easier and easier to do it.” – David Harsanyi

Social media consumer and downright Genius Award Winner.

A Springfield man is in jail after authorities say he filmed himself using a butter knife and a screwdriver to remove an ankle monitor — then posted the video to Facebook.

The July video referenced by investigators is still posted on what appears to be the Facebook page of Dustin W. Burns, 33.

Court records show Burns pleaded guilty to violating a restraining order earlier this year and was placed on probation.

Some people work to live, others live to work. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

“Hey, paisan — same as usual,” said John O’Rourke to Mr. Mancinelli, who began layering Mr. O’Rourke’s hair with his steady, snipping scissors.

“I don’t let anyone else touch my hair,” said Mr. O’Rourke, 56, of Cornwall, N.Y. “The guy’s been cutting hair for a century.”

Actually, Mr. O’Rourke was off by three years. Mr. Mancinelli is 107 and still working full time, cutting hair five days a week from noon to 8 p.m. He has been working in barbershops since he was 11. Warren Harding was in the White House.

Mr. Lindsey Grahambo gave an interview with local media yesterday which I saw on the 11PM News last night (WYFF, Greenville, SC).

He said that never before in his career has he ever campaigned against a colleague. But now that's going to change.

What he was talking about is "senatorial courtesy". One senator never directly campaigns against another senator, even of the other party. Directly, now.

So Mr. Lindsey is apparently going to directly badmouth his Democrat colleagues.

23 Hey everybody. Willowed from the last thread:

I've been reading about the late 1970s heyday of the legendary disco club, Studio 57. It was really actually only open from 1977 to 1978, about a year and a half. The IRS closed it down when they found the owners were doing everything in cash... and not declaring their (massive quick) windfall.

Jimmy Carter's IRS took Studio 54 down. Can't help but wonder: is that a point in the good or bad column for ol' Jimmeh?

48 So, there's a pro-abortion outfit in Texas that directly targets black women - picking up Margaret Sanger's charge, I guess. Here's a gem from them:
Since slavery, the value of Black women's bodies has been based on our ability to birth children. The economic oppression of Black women and the control over Black women's bodies are inextricably linked. Economic oppression can show up in various forms: a mother already challenged with financially supporting children becomes pregnant, or another mother living in an unsafe community and can't afford to move due to poverty. A reproductive justice framework identifies why a woman must be able to make the choices that are best for herself and her family.

Abortion - especially targeted at specific races - is "justice" now. This same outfit also describes abortion as "self care." They make Planned Parenthood look tame.

102 So, there's a pro-abortion outfit in Texas that directly targets black women - picking up Margaret Sanger's charge, I guess. Here's a gem from them:
Since slavery, the value of Black women's bodies has been based on our ability to birth children. The economic oppression of Black women and the control over Black women's bodies are inextricably linked. Economic oppression can show up in various forms: a mother already challenged with financially supporting children becomes pregnant, or another mother living in an unsafe community and can't afford to move due to poverty. A reproductive justice framework identifies why a woman must be able to make the choices that are best for herself and her family.

Abortion - especially targeted at specific races - is "justice" now. This same outfit also describes abortion as "self care." They make Planned Parenthood look tame.

So... a U.S. Marshals program, but state and local police were included.

LOL.

She also said that the world "selfishly consumes" the work of women of color.

I think "stupidly" is the more accurate word. The original poem sucked and the "edited" poem was equally as stupid.

And I find it funny how these third-world losers think the successful societies are just stealing all their shit. LOL. "Selfishly consumes" ... yeah ... right. Write me a postcard from your dead husband's funeral pyre ...

Kaur concluded the post by saying, "If you, as a white person, feel that I matter so little within the context of what I create... you're colonizing my poetry."

Crybaby. There weren't five people on Earth who had ever heard of her "poem" (and I use that word loosely) before the femnazi mob took a knife to it and threw it up on their bedposts and toilets.

164 It's the fact that you're a poet that makes you irrelevant.
Posted by: IllTemperedCur at October 09, 2018 10:18 PM (eXA4G)


Which is kinda sad. Back when poets needed patrons and sold poems in anthologies there was a feedback loop - if you wrote crap poetry, you did it as a hobby. People who wrote successful poetry had a cultural impact, because normal people read their work.

Now the only poets who make a living at it do so from university sinecures. They only write poetry (or should I say "poetry") for poetry critics in other universities. So of course it's all crap that doesn't have any relevance to the wider culture.

As way of reply, Chris Meagher, hotly defending Tester wrote this gem:

@jontester
was making a living shooting hundreds of cows and hogs. So I think Montanans know who gets guns. #mtpol #mtsen

264 Poetry is tough. I can say with some authority since I've known a few poets.
The ones who like to eat usually go into real estate. Honest.
The others write on the side as a hobby or to express creativity that doesn't come from working for a living.
The really fortunate ones can write other things as well and have the poetry to sustain their souls.
That said, whoever this person of color is, sounds more that she's whining about someone reading her stuff and saying it sucked.

What the brown communist is actually upset by is that some of the white communists have been taking one of her "poems", changing the words, and reposting it.

Now, true, the "poem" is shite, but nonetheless having people take your work without permission is wrong.


Oh, wait: they're communists, and property is theft.

You need a logic tree
- If you're a white man, then "yes"
- If you're a "man of color," then "maybe" - it depends on your birthplace, class and political affiliation.
- If you're a white woman, then "yes"
--> Unless you're a radical feminist lesbian, in which case "no" - but only if you buy carbon credits
- If you're a "woman of color," then "no"

When a human being throws up, what's the first thing you want to do? Wash the vomit taste out of your mouth, right?

When an animal throws up -- say, a dog -- does it try to drink some water to get rid of the taste? Nope -- "I'm good here!"

404 Here is the thing about granting the pitcher a gimme on a pitch out to a batter when there are runners on second and third.
The defense gets a huge advantage by doing that with no assumption of risk.


The defense gets a force at any base, yet isn't required to even take the smallest of risks by throwing four balls to walk a batter. The pitcher will, on occasion blow throw and cause a run to come in.
I know the MLB games can go on a long time, but finding a time savings on that little piece of minutia devalues the quality of the game.
Maybe make the batters stay in the batters box and not adjust their batting gloves for 30seconds between every pitch.

The only reason they have jobs of any sort, these days, is because they were lucky enough to be colonized and forced to speak English as an official language.

421 I thought of a way for Trump Jr. to play this challenge by Avenatti. He should agree, but negotiate strenuously, and somehow slide in a clause about substitutions in case of medical emergency.

So then when the day of the big fight, they get in the MMA cage and square off, and suddenly Trump Jr. says "Ow! I gotta Ear Ache!" and jumps out, tagging the hand of a REAL MMA fighter, baddest ass he can find who's on standby, and then HE jumps into the ring and without any warning beats the hell out of Avenatti. Now that would be epic!!! Oh and while it's going on they can get Hulk Hogan to make his comeback and hit the ref over the head with a folding chair.

The notion that intentional walks are responsible for long baseball games is ludicrous.

The main culprits are commercials between innings, 50 gazillion pitching changes in every game, and most importantly, the way that batters and pitchers step out after every pitch.

Back in the early 1900s, an average 9 inning game took about an hour and 30 minutes. You can look it up.

486 This Heine fellow nails it. What an excellent vision he had for peacable living.

Also, speaking of immigration, the Supremes (with Kavanaugh, of course) hear a very important case tomorrow, Nielsen v. Preap. A 9th Circus case that started under The Shit Midas.

Question presented: "Whether a criminal alien becomes exempt from mandatory detention under 8 U.S.C. 1226(c), if, after the alien is released from criminal custody, the Dept of Homeland Security does not take him into immigration custody immediately."

I strongly suspect preventing Kav from making it onto the Court in time to hear this case was a primary reason for the debacle of the last month.

Yeah, you affirmative action lightweight, the "world is watching" - to see if we continued our insane, reckless, irresponsible policy of not enforcing our border, in the face of massive endless desire to migrate here. Something *none* of these countries would think of doing, if they have the ability to enforce their borders.


Besides which, you fucking repugnant airhead, have you heard of human trafficking? You have the slightest idea how much a lawless border is a driver and magnifier of one of the most vile crimes, child slavery and trafficking?


Even in the age of Trump, we don't have a single public figure (much less a dozen) who would rip Powell's empty head off for his arrogant, ignorant, hateful nonsense - and this is a problem.


Back when this idiot was SecState, I recall a message sent to accompany pizza that was sent to IDF troops somewhere on watch in Israel (PizzaIDF.com is a cool website that allows you to pay for pizza to be delivered to IDF detachments on duty - and they would list a sample of the messages donors had provided on the website).

537 The Lefty media seem to *finally* be changing tactics with Trump. Way to catch on. The changes (within 40 minutes) to the initial version of an LA Times article about the rally tonight demonstrate it.

They block it from Google's web cache (of course) but where they once reported that Trump called the Democrats "Dims", they have now removed that tidbit completely. A couple years ago that would have been put out on a mass media megaphone and everyone in the country would have heard it the next morning. It appears for the moment to be on virtual news blackout.

Unfortunately for them he will now be calling them "Dims" repeatedly and completely unchallenged, which may actually be even worse for them. Do they ignore, or rebut? Can they let it stand...? Art of War baby.

An intentional walk should be a double, anyway. There has to be more of a penalty to an intentional walk than just the walk, itself. And I would formalize it by saying that any walk on 4 consecutive balls (if the batter swings at anything it is no longer a candidate for an intentional walk) is "intentional" and, therefore, a double.

And her positions are political, not religious, which usually means she is a lesbian who was afraid to come out so she joined a flaky order of lefty sisters so she could get dates.

I am willing to bet her order doesn't answer to the local Bishop, either. Obedience isn't really one of her things, apparently. Don't know about poverty or celibacy, either.

559 An intentional walk should be a double, anyway. There has to be more of a penalty to an intentional walk than just the walk, itself. And I would formalize it by saying that any walk on 4 consecutive balls (if the batter swings at anything it is no longer a candidate for an intentional walk) is "intentional" and, therefore, a double.

Nope.

Do NOT mess with baseball.

We messed with baseball when we got the DH. That has been an unmitigated disaster.

We messed with baseball when we went to playoffs, which negate 162 fairly played games and dispensed with the pennant. Also a disaster.

Now you want to take away the intentional walk? Next you're going to take away the bean ball.

Do NOT mess with baseball.

QFT. I'm of Irish descent, and still have family there. Way back in my pre twenty nine days, I went to visit my great aunt and family in my grandfather's hometown.

It was unbelievable. I was able to buy one round in a week, once they found out who my grandfather was, and the women seemed to love Americans with close roots there. In hindsight, I should have moved there back in the mid-late 80s.

581 Many of the people who emigrated to America did so from Yorkshire, a place that people from the Home Counties traditionally look down upon as home to rustics."

I've only taken one trip to England, but it was a fantastic one with friends, we are all quite musically minded, and when you have a good ear for music you have a good ear for accents. We guessed that a great number of Americans must have come from Yorkshire just by listening to their speech. It is very easy on the ears.
We started off in London but then spent most of our visit in Yorkshire (wondeful little town of Ripon) and we all commented on how, unlike the London accent, which is what you hear on the BBC mostly, the Yorkshire accents were much closer to American, to us with southern accents it sounded like they could have been from some of the northeastern states. Ended up in Edinburgh, and the Scots accent there was quite mild and pleasant. We were practicing all of them on the flight home.

Little known fact: the Yorkshire accent is closely related to the American one because many people who emigrated to America did so from Yorkshire.

Little known fact #2: what is now taken to the BBC English accent is of recent vintage. It derives from the Home Counties accent, and is just over a century old.

Little known fact #3: British English used to use "z" much as Americans now do. Only relatively recently - certainly after the American Revolution - did the Brits begin to substitute "s" for "z" in spellings.

Little known fact #4: Shakespeare's English was closer to current American English than it is to current British English.

Evidence: consider that Canadian English is virtually the same as American English, with a few idiosyncrasies ("abooot") thrown in, and certainly much closer than it is to British English. One reason Canadians are at pains in Europe to distinguish themselves from Americans (through, e.g., flag patches), because otherwise they're indistinguishable to Europeans.

True.

I minored in literature, and once had to look up in the OED every word in a scene of a Shakespeare play.

It was a tedious but illuminating exercise. So many words have changed in connotation, and others at the time had colloquial connotations now long lost. Imagine someone 500 years from now who thinks that in the 21st century "gay meant "happy, careful" instead of "degenerate."

I find it hard to believe that anyone can actually know what some spoken language actually sounded like without any recordings. Sure, you can find a few clues here and there (rhymes, etc.) but that's minor stuff - and one has to be careful with artistic license taken with such things, anyway.

Of course, one can easily claim that "this" is the way English was spoken by Shakespeare .. and no one is able to refute the claim, either. So, there's that advantage to the field ...

Because much of the word play makes no sense with current pronunciation.

"Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
I sure I hope I don't
Have another field to plough."

Made up example, but you get my point. If "blue" were pronounced as the Germanic "blau," this would scan. Otherwise, if makes no sense.

Much Ado about Nothing = Much Ado about Poontang.

"Nothing" was pronounced closer to "noting", hard 't', and was a common Elizabethan slang for cooter. Me have a thing hanging between their legs. Women do not. Hence "no thing".

The Guinness over there was nothing like here, way better. Curious though, they had some love affair with Budweiser. The very first night I was standing in the hotel bar, and there was another room off of the main bar room. There was a dude playing guitar and singing american songs, like Neil diamond, Roy Orbison, and some country pop. A waitress walks by and I see 3-4 bud bottles on her tray. I look around and I see bud bottles here and there on all the tables. There was a wedding going on there earlier, so these were wedding guests partying, not Americans. I look around, see the bud bottles, I hear the American music, I said to the wife, "did we make a frigging u-turn over the Atlantic that I didn't know about, where the hell are we?? I stop the waitress and i say whats with the bud??? She says oh its popular here. I said for what, cleaning your windows? She says its refreshing. I said yeah, its water. She laughs and says over here its actually stronger. I looked at the label and it was. Still, was weird seeing that. Cider was popular too. I had it, had a decent kick.

654 I think it generally considered that the Appalachian "hillbilly" accent is closest to the English of Shakspur's day.

Brit scholars went to Appalachia to learn the long-forgotten lyrics of songs of the 18th century.

Fun fact: American use of "gotten" strikes Brits as archaic, much as we'd consider someone saying "hark," or "forsooth." It's still standard American English, whereas Brits would say "have got," which rather grates on my ears, personally.

659 the branch of Scots ancestors, the Liddle and Pettis families, are supposed to have had something to do with this castle in the deep past. Originally built by the English, but it was on the borderlands and was always in the thick of all of the lowland wars around Braveheart's time. It's changed hances many times over the centuries. Called Hermitage, but it's believe the original name was L'Armitage (guardhouse, in Norman French)

http://www.scotshistoryonline.co.uk/hermitage.html

And apparently for everyone named Little/Liddle/Lydle or other variations, it had nothing to do with size. It referred to the people who lived along the River Lydd, or Lidd, the western border between Scotland and England. Most famous arguably being Alice Liddell, of Wonderland fame.

Jackson Cosko is the son of Democratic donors from California; his father donated $2,500 to Dianne Feinstein and his mother donated $500 to Hillary Clinton, according to federal records.

Jackson Cosko most recently worked as an unpaid intern for Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas. He previously worked with Sen. Maggie Hassan, D-N.H., and former Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer of California. He also worked or interned with the office of Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., the ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, as well as with at least one other unnamed lawmaker. A LinkedIn page with Cosko's name on it describes him as a "Democratic Political Professional & Cybersecurity Graduate Student."

I never knew the city was renamed "Zhdanov" (for a Soviet commie thug), from the 40s til the Soviet collapse. But it touches a special nerve, as I recall sitting through various lectures at Zhdanov Institute of Marxism-Leninism at Leningrad State Univ. back in the day.

That's nice and all ... but they're still just superimposing forced rhymes on today's English, which is not the same as knowing how they actually spoke back then.

And I mentioned artistic license, which is something real. People force rhymes all the time. You can find poems and lyrics written today where you would have to torture a word in order to get the rhyme that the author intended - which has less than nothing to do with how any of it is actually spoken in real life.

729 Palp, the revolutionary first names were the best, though.


Elektrifikatsiya (which actually works well as "Elektra" for women)


Traktor (oh yes), for boys


The two famous historians - Roy (the imperative "dig!" - from your cherished canal project era) and Zhores (not as ridiculous - named for a Spanish commie named Juarez).


Now this is weird, but waaaay back in the early 70s, Fresno State had a running back named Atomic Torosian. Leave aside what an awesome name that is, esp. for a football player - back then of course I just thought it was odd, but now it seems certain he must have been from an emigre Armenian family (Fresno was the center of "first wave" Armenian immigration starting around WWI, Glendale part of LA the center of late Soviet-era immigration). A family that came out after the revolution.

General rule - if a city existed prior to the Soviet era, it often got renamed for commie heroes and big-wigs. If it was built in the Soviet era, it got named for some industrial process. The commie ones, from the Pacific to the Polish border, mostly got renamed (back to the old names) after 1991. Some of the Soviet-built places have kept their names (having had no others).

746 Miklos, we were just semester language students - so after a few tedious lectures in the beautiful historic lecture hall, most of us skipped them (they were in the afternoons, after classes in the morning).


I'd also skip lunch and just find something out in the city - pirozhki from vendors in parks were a staple, washed down by kvas from tanks mounted on the back of WWII Lend-Lease jeep caissons (and somehow I never got sick, and am alive today). Would take tram lines to the end of the line and just explore - and Soviet clothing (bought right away upon arrival) didn't fool anybody. They'd stare.


Tried to use my student ID to bluff my way into the navy base/shipyard in central Leningrad. Guy just smiled and shook his head "no, other way, sonnie".


Jay - sadly, no. Today chatting with the Ukrainian reminded me how much I need to work on my Russian. Back in the day, it was much better, but as I recall the lectures were (surprise!) pretty turgid and stupid, and I probably missed a fair amount.

Yeah, but it's not that bad. German, as has been explained to me, is a synthetic language, meaning that it describes new concepts by the juxtaposition of existing ones.

English, OTOH, is an analytical language, meaning it uses a new word for a new concept.

Hence in English we talk about a "glove," which is obviously related to ... nothing, but Germans talk about "Handschuh," which obviously relates to shoe you wear on your hands.

Even for "phonetic" alphabets and the like. Pronunciation is a whole different animal and moves and varies with time and place like crazy.

Spelling is another clue. Spelling wasn't standardized like it is now in modern times. So, people would spell things more phonetically, and when you see differences in spelling, that's a clue to differences in pronunciation.

If this sort of stuff is interesting to people I would recommend The History of English podcast. He starts out with proto-Indo European and moves forward from there until getting to English. He's only into Middle English right now, just finishing up with English around the time Robert the Bruce kicked the English out of Scotland. He averages about one podcasts a month. And he does talk about spelling of words pretty often. For instance "Ye" as in "Ye Olde Blacksmith shop" wouldn't have actually been pronounced "Ye" but "The" The "Y" is used because it's close to a letter we no longer use to represent the "Th-" sound.

Not quite. English uses old German grammar, but about 70% of vocabulary is Latin based. Lots of core words from German, also from Vikings (shirt/skirt-and I consider skirt a core concept).

When I taught English/ESL I got students' attention by telling then that the most commonly used English word is Hungarian, and everybody's favorite word in English is originally Chinese.

It must be interesting to teach German to American students, considering that young Germans have incorporated so much English into their language.

Meh ... This is like what Feynman found when he was investigating the Challenger accident. He was at the plant checking the tubes (for the boosters, I think) and they had to be circular. So, he asked how they checked that the tubes were, indeed, circular, and they said that they measured three different diameters on a section to make sure that section was round. But when he talked to the guys on the plant floor, they told him that that was inaccurate since they knew that some bubbles would form on one side with a corresponding bubble in the other direction on the other side of the tube and the diameter would measure as (smooth) round even though it wasn't.

Having relative comparisons (as rhymes) doesn't give you much for the absolute sound, which is what things REALLY sounded like. Two people can read the same pair of words as rhyming even though they pronounce them quite differently. But they still rhyme, to each. In addition, as I pointed out, in poetry rhyming is often very unnatural, anyway - forced by the poet (and accepted by the public, because ... that's art). We hear countless examples of this in songs all the time.

Look, if people believe that someone can actually know how old English REALLY sounded, then great. I think they might be close but I highly doubt they are nearly as accurate as they claim. Of course, there's no way of knowing one way or the other.

Lastly, I would say that Shakespeare was influential in English. He introduced many ways of speaking that exist to this day, so it's not inconceivable that he forced some pronunciations to be different from what they actually were at the time. I don't know that to be the case but I would be surprised if it wasn't.

Chicken or egg, I dunno. I spent a summer at Tsukuba, the science city, at the invitation of the Japanese government (at the instigation of a friend of mine whom I'd known at Berkeley).

There was something I'd wanted to do/have done (now forgotten), and he'd had a pained expression and said, "It is difficult." But then I knew what that meant: there's no effing way, and I let it drop. In Britain, the corresponding expression is that "we'll do that when the time is right," which again means "no effing way" or "over my dead body."

With time even I learned the cultural signals. Probably long after the locals had decided I was retarded.

Don't recall how much damage it received during the war (almost every place we went, we learned that factoid - for good reason, and the restorations of the palaces, which were not just damaged but looted and vandalized by Fritz, were astonishing).


Had spent most of the day out at the beach (Gulf of Finland). Train, to/from. Hot day. Dying of thirst - and only thing to drink was the foul, super mineral-salty mineral water (room temperature). Arrived late at the Kirov, spent 5 minutes at a concession stand outside the hall drinking something drinkable (can't remember).


Years later, spent time down in Borzhomi, most famous mineral water source in the USSR. And the water was much better. Must have had the "discount" brand up north.

Yes. The dominance of the English language is not because the grammar or pronunciation are easy, because they are not.

The British Empire, then American cultural dominance have played roles.

Fundamentally, English, as a language, reflects the values of the culture that produced it. There is no Academie Anglaise that determines what is acceptable or not. English is the lovable mutt of languages, and open to what works.

Or sports commentators, baseball players, and other retards talking about "command." Prior to the First Gulf War, it was routine to talk about a pitcher's "control." After DoD briefings on taking out "command and control" centers, the baseball retards started talking about "command." Some of the most severly retarded now try to draw a distinction between "command" and "control," where all they mean is that a pitcher can throw a ball where he wants it to go.

Yes, the Y came into our language to replace a letter called Thorn, which made the th sound. There are two different ways to depict the Thorn, one is a D with a line through it and the other is a sort of fucked up P.

Here is a 1624 gravestone of one Capt. John Williams. It's from Scituate, MA.

https://bit.ly/2CAwufZ

See how the Y has the e just nestled above it? They still hadn't quite figured out how to incorporate the Y, but "here lyeth the body of Capt. John"

We still had the Thorn in Beowulf's time (ca. 1000) but not by Chaucer's (1300s) and yet in 1624 we're still mucking about with Y.

Posted by: Ace's liver


The most famous word in the Japanese language, "arigato" (meaning "thank you") is actually just a Japanese mispronunciation of the Portuguese word "obrigado," meaning "thank you."

Apparently when the first Westerners arrived in Japan -- Portuguese traders who landed at Nagasaki -- they kept saying "Obrigado" during negotiations, trying the charm the Japanese. But the Japanese had no idea what the word meant. When it was eventually explained to them, with some difficulty, they thought, "Damn, that's a great word! Let's borrow it!" and so "Arigato" was born.

What's incredible is that the Japanese had no word for "thank you" prior to this. How could that be, considering that their culture now revolves entirely about thanking and groveling and bowing and apologizing. How could they have developed a "gratitude culture" without ever developing a word for the core concept of their own culture?

Similarly, no real word for "please". "onegai" is closer to "it is my wish that..."

Though maybe that makes sense in a gratitude culture, as it does not place the onus on the listener, but leaves it on the speaker.

Japanese is unbelievably difficult. it's not like most other languages -- a lot depends on conversational context, and whom you're speaking to, and what your social role is in relation to them. People who have tried to learn it have told me that there really isn't just one "Japanese language," but more like four or five Japaneses, depending on the level of intimacy or formality involved. I know a lot of people who tried to learn it for years, and eventually gave up. In fact, I recently traveled in Japan with someone who had studied Japanese for two years, and that person was basically just as helpless and clueless as I was when it came to understanding the spoken language in real-world settings.

Yep. Yiddish is 90% German and 10% Hebrew. It's written in Hebrew, but that's a tough fit since Hebrew is a language that is really based on a syllabic alphabet (the vowels aren't included because they are part and parcel of the underlying letter structure) and a foundational structure of a three consonant root. But they had to fit this alphabet to spell out German words, which was not so easy or natural.

On the other side of Judaism (the Sephardic Jews - Spanish Jews) there was Ladino, which was the same sort of mixture, but of Spanish and Hebrew, as the daily language.

Interestingly, that is how the Greek alphabet got independent vowels as letters.

And, thus, a phonetic alphabet with vowels was born. One of the greatest advances in writing and Mankind ... purely by mistake.

You reminded me of an incident that happened to a close friend of mine. About twenty years ago he was traveling in Bavaria and was in a small town in the off-season (winter), and ended up at what looked like a homey authentic local restaurant for dinner. My friend, being Jewish, knew a bit of Yiddish, and also a smidgen of German. As he sat there in the corner eating all alone, late at night, he saw on the wall a sign saying some homespun homily in German -- something along the lines of "Home Sweet Home" -- and was trying to decipher it, when the owner woman came out from the kitchen into the restaurant, looked around at the diners, all of whom were locals who ate there frequently, and yelled out in German (which my friend could understand somewhat), "Have all the tourists left?" Everyone said yes, not noticing my friend in the corner, so the owner woman walked over to the sign, and flipped it over -- to reveal a portrait of Adolf Hitler! Everyone chanted briefly in unison, "Zieg heil!" and went back to eating.

My friend dropped some bills on the table and got out of there as quickly as possible.

In fact, I recently traveled in Japan with someone who had studied Japanese for two years, and that person was basically just as helpless and clueless as I was when it came to understanding the spoken language in real-world settings.

Posted by: zombie at October 10, 2018 01:48 AM (c+2jX)



I was watching/listening to some history thing on youtube and they were discussing either the Hittites or ancient Sumer and the language and there was something about the way that language was that they were explaining that it was different from what we are used to, and I think they compared it to Japanese. Like its structured in a similar manner to Japanese.

897 buzzion, good point about southern German Catholics and the Nazis. Not generally on good terms. Center Party, last coalition partner with the Nazis and serious competitor for votes, mostly Catholic, as I recall. Catholic bishops and priests - first people of any stature to publicly criticize Nazi policies, after the "seizure of power" and the de facto end of open politics.


Think it was mid-way during the war, gauleiter of Bavaria or other top regional Nazi official decided to ban crucifixes from schools. Oops. Backlash forced him to rescind the policy.


Hitler and others planned to "deal with" the church(es), after victory in war. But feared the effects on morale and cohesion of crushing them while the issue was in doubt.

Not so fast, bander. A group of Syrian 'yoots' had the fuzz called on them in Cottbus on September 1 of this year for doing a little Seig Heilin'. There are of course other reports; I searched 2018.

The criminal police have started investigations against a group of Syrian men for using the characteristics of unconstitutional organisations. According to information from the Cottbus police, "Sieg-Heil-Rufe" was heard. The men aged 17 to 29 years had stayed in the Cottbus district of Saspow during the night to Sunday. Witnesses had called the police shortly before midnight because their sense of security was impaired by the noisy, darkly dressed group.

Good point. We wouldn't want it indelibly etched in anyone's hippocampus.

Seriously, though, is it hurting Kavanaugh, or the people who accused him of such obviously false and politically smears?

966 Good morning Horde.

Jordan Peterson, in a twitter exchange with Bret Weinstein, said that Kav, if confirmed, should step down. I don't know if there is more to this. I am guessing he has not been following the event except through the garbage media ... He has gotten a huge pushback from his regular audience.

Bret Weinstein was the professor who was forced to resign from that SJW Lord of the Flies college Evergreen. It was a blessing in disguise since it traded fame for a career at a school that will likely close in a few years. His brother Eric is a true genius and more interesting, and I recommend watching his interview on Dave Rubin. If I had to guess, I would say that they both suffer under the lunacy that Bernie Sanders would have been a better President. This blindness is relevant to the current issue.

The most aggravating thing about this is that most of the Intellectual Dark Web (tm) have been victims or know victims of pervasive media-driven character assassinations. The high majority of articles I saw about James Demore were fucking defamatory. There are two fair articles in the whole wide world as far as I know, at the Federalist and Quillette. How does their numbers compare to Forbes or the MSM?

I pick Demore, but I could have picked five others that are in or near the IDW. Knowing that ... how can you look at Kavanaugh, or even a real actual ChadBro McFratboy, and not wonder about that.

989 “We learned last week that a woman named Monica McLean was Ms. Ford's roommate and she was one of the so-called 'beach friends' that encouraged Ms. Ford to go to [Sen.] Dianne Feinstein and the partisan Democrats on the judiciary committee,” Cotton continued. “It just so happens that Monica McLean worked for Preet Bharara, the former U.S. attorney in Manhattan, now a virulent anti-Trump critic on television and former counsel to Chuck Schumer.”

Preet Bharara seems to be picking up where Sid Blumenthal left off, working for the Clinton Crime Syndicate. Sid is lying low for now.

Average tenure for a Baltimore Commissioner is less then two years.

I think DeSoza went almost 100 days before he resigned for cheating on taxes, or some such.

They've known for over four decades that Tangier Island is sinking. It has nothing to do with sea level. 10,000 years ago the huge block of ice from NYC and north caused Tangier Island to rise -- like the skinny kid on a teeter totter when a fat kid sits on the other side. But it takes a tremendous amount of time for the land mass to restore itself.

1063 Oh joy. Looks like ExxonMobile has set aside $1MM to support legislation to impose a carbon tax.

Americans For Carbon Dividends

Another prog attempt to hijack and completely redefine words: "Americans" and "Dividends".

Because we all know Americans love giving up money and liberty to the wealthy to maintain their lavish lifestyle - all in the name of Gaia.

Dennis Prager was doing a talk where he commented on one of the Ten Commandments "You shall not carry the Lord's Name in vain", simply said, "don't drag God into your personal vanities". That is, don't go on a killing spree and claim that you are doing this for God.

It is interesting that there is no such command among the Left. One of their gods is Gaia, and it appears that it is holy and sacred to drag Gaia into their personal wealth creation schemes that just so happens to require the death and misery of billions.

1066 Muldoon, I must be some kind of an idiot. I just tried yet again to leave a comment at your limerick site because I se now you can just do it with a name. It looked like it might work, but then I hit publish and poof, it disappeared.

Well, just know that I go there and read them and enjoy them and would tell you so in writing right there if I could.

1068 I thought I'd check out the article about the kid at UC Davis who got screwed over by the #MeToo psycho. It was in Reason Magazine, which I gave up years ago. Still, I read it. The writer sticks in this dig about Trump at the end... "The president's interest in due process and the presumption of innocence is, as always, highly selective." What douches.

Please o please get your kids college conduct code and review it with them. Most schools have set up courts that ignore all constitutional rights!

Okay. I don't have any info on time or place, so I'll send you another email. Maybe we should ask everyone who's planning to attend to do the same since it's only a few days away.

Well, here in East Texas it actually dropped all the way down to 66 degrees last night, and we're freezing! I might even have to put the shorts away and wear some long slacks today.

Thanks for trying. It's Blogspot, so there are some wonky features. I had to delete a couple of obscene comments, but I suppose that wasn't you using an alias. I'm glad you enjoy them.

1092 Saw that story about Exxon - giving to something headed by Trent Lott, the original corrupticrat. Looking at the people who are in on that , it's all of the Bush families GOP-e pals getting together for one last round of graft. The good part is that they're all going to be fighting each other so much to see who can grab the most cash that they'll never actually get anything accomplished. (what the Bushes were best at)

As for Exxon - stupid move, but they have the luxury of throwing money at problems to make them go away and quit bothering them. It's hard to wrap our minds around how much cash they bring in, I remember running some numbers for another net post once, and was astounded. What does $1 million mean to Exxon?

Exxon brings in $1 million in revenue EVERY 5 seconds. Seriously. Over $1 billion every single day.

VLLC is a term of art for my Very Limited Liability Corporation ambulance chasing and porn star representation business so I can be even more casual with my legal "ethics".
