Welcome to another Spring!

A philosopher once told me:
Birds are very important

This season Spring ends on Wednesday June 20th

Imagine the breeze they get when the other farts.


Spring here has so far been very mild and cool, I really like it. We had a really hot December, hottest in like a century if not recorded history (granted it's USA) so this is a nice balance.
Been a few freezing warnings on a couple nights, though, which is definitely not a good thing for budding plants.

Speaking of creaky voice, there's this video from the other day that briefly visualizes it as it occurs in Danish, before moving on to [ð̠˕ˠ] (which is not actually a [ð]).


Nice Youtube animation

Linguistic loving anon, what do you think a return to 'purer' (aka less loanwords) English language would be like?


Kill the languages that loaned them to us so we don't need to pay them back anymore.


There's a name for this idea of a restored English: "Anglish"
Old English covers a period of about 700 years give or take, while Middle English saw radical changes throughout just three or four centuries. Noun and adjective cases, grammatical gender, verb conjugations, they all went away very quickly at the same time that Norman vocabulary was introduced in droves. And I mean droves, it was a huuuuge amount of words. There is a wealth of vocab that people are not familiar with anymore, nor their phonology or mechanisms of derivation. What's a geleafa? What morphemes is adlig made of, and how do you inflect it?
That's the grammar part, but at a social level Greco-Roman vocabulary is entrenched as the language of high civilization while English speakers often see their Anglo-Saxon lexicon as being either down-to-earth or pointlessly archaic depending on whether it has survived. You can see it being referred to as "earthy" here and there.
In practice, I think it'd look like current English but with some different sounds since there is no way you're going to bring back all the old grammar. A lot of proposed words you see out there are simply compounds of two words that are already in use, a replacement rather than truly bringing back stuff. IMO, it wouldn't be much of a revival, really.


Nothing like English. English as we know it today is this weird hybrid between Anglo-Saxon and French, and so much of our vocabulary comes from the latter in one form or another that removing it would knock out half our vocabulary.


Tolkien's English. He deliberately chose Germanic words over French/Latin words, for example graveyard instead of cemetery. The intention was to give the reader a feeling of an archaic world.


Yeah, Tolkien's one of the best examples out there, being himself a linguist and taking a lot from Beowulf (or at least, that's what I've read).

Is that an actual modern poster? Didn't think anyone knew of demotivationals anymore.


I think it's just a plain unironic 'motivational', which is weird to see after years of exposure to memes making fun of them.


Demotivationals were only making fun of motivational posters for like five minutes before they became a way to shoehorn a random, unfunny comment into any image. Literally the [white rectangle caption on top] of the 00s.

And if you never want to or need to go outside.


Its a dry heat. So aside from the middle of the day, its tolerable


Yeah, dry heat is much more bearable and even nice to sit in. I'd even say the middle of the day in the desert is 100x better than a very hot day in the coast where everything is humid as hell.

I was in Tokyo during the rainy season and my god was it hot, it was like the whole city had turned into a giant sauna. It was so humid it felt like I was breathing steam.

Does kissu think that religion provides more of a benefit towards society overall than it does cause harm through intolerance and dogma? I've met and seen some really insufferably religious people throughout my life that would happily take away individual freedoms and liberties should they ever have the power to do so because of what their religious texts say. In that sense, I've been quite soured on it to where people bringing up their religious beliefs can annoy me. On the other hand however, I think the base of what religion is supposed to provide, a sort-of "guide" to living and goal for happiness, is extremely valuable. For those aimless or carrying extreme existential dread, I feel that it can be a lifesaver because it gives you purpose and something to strive towards.

I just wish that religion could exist with all its beneficial qualities while being free of all the persecution and downsides that come along with it.

Cult and faith are the same.


That seems to hinge on the old presentism vs eternalism debate. But certainly the claim that Christ was resurrected counts as a physical claim.


It is a physical claim but the belief in Christ’s resurrection isn’t an unfounded one or one taken without any evidence. There are technically eyewitness accounts of it.


Cult and faith being different words may just be might be English being English that has both French and Germanic roots. No, it isnt actually (they're both French!) after doing quick research but it's worth noting its not inherently derogatory¹ and the difference is a modern thing

1: The veneration, devotion, and religious rites given to a deity (especially in a historical polytheistic context), or (in a Christian context) to a saint.
the cult of Apollo
the cult of Mary


Cult and faith are different things, and both come from Latin.
Fidem, fides, fido, fidelis, they're all about trust, loyalty, and the like. Specifically, trust without evidence, but covering far more than just religion. On the other hand, cultus seems to have been used by the Romans to mean cult-ivation, the practices used to actively worship a deity. By extension, a group of people and their religious activities. Down here, one of our biggest ministries is called the:
>Ministerio de Relaciones Exteriores, Comercio Internacional y Culto
Which is translated as:
>Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Worship
And article 2 of the constitution is about upholding the "culto católico apostólico romano", Catholicism.

Having faith on something beyond the physical makes perfect sense.

>Unfortunately the video is the first, of three videos. From what I understand in them, the response would be that there are indeed "cult"-ish elements in Christianity. James Lindsey makes the case that "gnostic cults" parasitize other systems and use said system's own language to disguise itself. An example given most often is Jewish Kabbalist, it's hard for the average Jew to consider Kabbalists as being "gnostics". But from someone on the outside it is plainly clear that it is "gnostic". It be similarly easy for Protestants to easily identify and call out the "gnostics" in "The fake Vatican" while Catholics only see it as "The Vatican". Extrapolating this, it is hard for an academic in feminism to recognize and callout the problems with "sjw/woke/modern"-feminists that are behaving as "gnostic cultists". While for someone not in that discipline or academy it is easy for them to recognize that there is a "cultish" element in the latter group and it is distinct from the former.
Anonymous, is there something you'd like to tell us about your inclinations?

Have you ever or would you want to go to a Renaissance Fair? For those that don't know, in the US (and presumably elsewhere) there are festivals where people, uhh.. dress and act like old medieval (kinda) Europe and there's food and crafts and performances and stuff. It's definitely not historically accurate to any time or location. The people that work there are in character, but you don't have to dress up or roleplay, but it's more fun if you do.
It's quite famous for being the environment with the highest concentration of dorks and weirdos, so it's not as stressful as most public gatherings.

Chicken was and is a peasant food. They don't require much to look after and they breed readily. Also, when a hen gets to a certain age she stops laying and there are roosters to think about as well, so eating chicken was not that uncommon.


pheasant food


I used to go to them with my Dad when I was younger. It was fun to watch the jousting and eat a giant turkey leg. Last time I went I paid way too much on a cool ornamental dagger.


I'm not that anal about things. But there is just to much of a juxtaposition between modern people and the costumes they try to wear, weight tattoos and died hair are the obvious issues but even more than that people these days are lazy and don't look after their appearance in general.

So for example, a guy came through the gate wearing Chinese clothing and said he was studying something to do with China at uni. Most of his costume was fine, he even had a head piece and long hair but his long hair was not bound up in the head piece. No self respecting Chinaman would walk around dishevelled like that and the amount of effort he would have had to have put in to fix this was minute(and he could have shaved his neck beard while he was at it).


that sounds very anal

Very nice.

I'm a huge insectophobe but daddy longlegs never really bothered me for some reason. I used to get them a lot at my old home and I used to think they were kinda cute in a way. They don't seem to like going indoors, so they don't get in your way, and just sort of slowly stride along minding their own business most of the time unless they're panicked, instead of the spazzy sprints other spiders seem to randomly do. They also eat other spiders and stuff that can actually hurt you.

I've never seen them herd together like this though, they look like giant balls of wool.

Apparently the Writers Guild of America is getting pissy about things and are threatening a strike if their demands aren't met. One of the things that'd immediately happen if this were to occur would be that late night hosts would pretty much immediately have no material and be off the air, so sucks for the people that actually still have cable I guess? Aside from that it could potentially impact movies and TV for Hollywood and elsewhere across the country. What gets me curious is what does the WGA even do? Could they not be replaced by independent writers or AI or something? If these are the people responsible for churning out scripts for modern western flicks/cable tv then I have to wonder if it wouldn't be better if they do strike and take themselves out of the idea pool for media. Probably would be better if that were the case.

Also are guilds for writers like this a thing more exclusive to America because of how massive the entertainment industry here is, or are they a commonality to be found in other countries too including Japan?

Meh, it's different. With higher ups its people acting unrealistic and out of place political dialogue
Without higher ups its just memes and references but often competent otherwise


Because in the west the writers are active on social media and fight with people who didnt like it



reading up on this more, the writer's guild may be as retarded as i initially thought


it's a union, they're as dumb as ceo


>For pre-greenlight rooms, it proposed “minimum staff of six writers, including four Writer-Producers.” For post-greenlight rooms, it proposed “one writer per episode up to six episodes, then one additional writer required for each two episodes after six, up to a maximum of 12 writers. Example: eight episodes requires seven writers including four Writer-Producers; 10 episodes requires eight writers including five Writer-Producers.”

>A writer/producer is responsible for developing, writing, and producing scripts of new stories for television programs or episodes. ...You are expected to research topics to deliver stories that are entertaining and engaging. You will be responsible for sourcing audio and video footage for editors and spearheading and collaborating for both pre-production and post-production with the editors. As a writer, you are also expected to edit, submit and dub material for program inclusion, coordinating the day-to-day activities of a support production staff to ensure quality, style, and content. Depending on where you are working, you may be required to operate video editing equipment, report and narrate stories, and assist show producers in organizing and planning the show. You may also be required to prepare fundraising campaigns.
>The three most common skills for writer/producers are instagram, facebook, and twitter.

Man, Writer-Producer sounds like an awful job, or many jobs. Lots of different responsibilities that would have you running around online and offline and you might not know what you're going to be doing at a new job.
