How can we make you tell us? :P

(Posted on: 31 May 2010, 13:16:20)


Today, at dinner, with my entire family and several of our close friends present, my father was telling us about some of his students and whether or not they passed their exams. :P While inappropriate, my brother brought the woman he spent the night with.
My father: And so, while she completely failed the mathematics part, she was able to compensate for it by acing the English oral exam.
My brother, while nuzzling his one-night-stand's neck: I'm going to pass an oral exam tonight...

Me: *speechless*


Really? XP At dinner? XP With the entire family present? XP What of class and propriety?

Eeegh...sounds like he needs to be kept in line. I suggest you put a boxing glove on a stick and give him the old right hook once in a while. :P

The real question is, how can someone compensate Math by acing English? weird school system!

The idea is that the average of all your exams is passing. :P Anyway, it's just with that one particular exam, not in general.

I'm reposting this here because I need to rant. NOW. :P

World's Biggest Idiot

Why does the fact that there is an idiot loose on the internet who desperately needs to be sterilised NOW before she figures out that she's too dumb to learn how to use birth control not bother anyone? XP
*sighs* :P

Sorry, I never will understand the mentality that keeps people from stabbing idiots on a daily basis...It confuses me. :-[

Also, the world does not and never has had a magical "Update language" button that appears every time a territory changes hands. :P So even if the UK hadn't lost many of the territories in which English is still spoken today by the time the Nazi's allegedly invaded GB and had the language magically changed in those few years to reflect that occupation no matter how unlikely and totally implausible this scenario is, these things are usually restricted to dialects, not the official language and would certainly not have affected all of Oceania, most of continental North America, parts of Africa and random islands scattered all over the Pacific, just to name a few, let alone places where English is spoken by a select educated elite.

AND FURTHERMORE, German is a declined, highly inflected language. This means that syntax or "like word order" is much freer in German, though we have a few rules regarding the placement of the predicate. English is, on the other hand, hardly inflected at all and even adverbs are falling out of use among the less educated who speak it, which is to say nothing of a concept like moods. It is virtually impossible to compare the syntax of an inflected language with that of a virtually uninflected one, simply because the latter has more rules than that former does.

And lastly, Britain was never occupied by Germany during WWII...something she should have realised by the fact that the UK acted as a beacon of hope to all occupied countries at the time and being British, she ought to have known that since it's mentioned. A LOT.

Ok, I apologise; I just realised the Channel Islands were occupied, but that doesn't count. XP

No, it really doesn't count. I mean that would mean that the influence of German (into the syntax that is radically different but apparently somehow ever so similar) on the already Germanic language[read: b****** child of French, Latin, and Greek... don't ask it was a really crazy night... hangovers were had by all :X... as well as LOTS of wine and ouzo ;)] spread outward through the rest of the English speaking world from the Channel Islands.

Obviously any superficial similarities between German and English are the fault of Hitler and the Nazis and have nothing to do with Old English being a Germanic language in the first place. ::)

Wow Can't believe this thread is still going!

The other day a gentleman said to me "there something very different between colour photographs and black and white"

I was like errr, ya think?? (well actually no I was very pleasant but in my head I was like well state the obvious why dont you?)  :suffer: I think perhaps he was trying to get the point that b&w is very atmospheric and some images work so much better than in colour but still, he could ahve phrased it differently!  :suffer:
