Random Questions "Attempt II"
(2953 posts, 343401 views) Posted: 989d 4h, 36m ago by Crenshinibon in Chatter Box
Quote from lambchopsil
You sure it's not "crawl" or "cowl"?


No, I'm sure it's a new hybrid term. The underlying attention to countable nouns clearly indicates professionalism.

I suppose it could also be a new animal--a cr ...
Random Questions "Attempt II"
(2953 posts, 343401 views) Posted: 989d 5h, 51m ago by Crenshinibon in Chatter Box
As a random question, how does one "crowl in the shadow"? Is a crowl the sound a dying crow makes? Or is it when a cow rolls around inside a giant bowl? And why is there only one shadow?

So many questions, so few answers. ...

Is satire a lost art...?

Seriously though, this poll is lost, can a mod lock it.


Apparently good satire is-- trolling hardly qualifies. It takes a real man to not just declare his intense prejudice against the mixing of peanut butter and jelly, and desp ...

I admire regularsharp for speaking up the truths.

I also admire scyfun, even though he doesn't admire hairy chests.

I also admire toiletpaper because he does admirable job.

New Poll - Translation Accuracy vs Fluency
(56 posts, 8052 views) Posted: 1316d 17h, 52m ago by Crenshinibon in News
Accuracy is a bit of a misnomer here. A clear and distinct argument can be made that 'fluent' translations are actually more accurate in that they better succeed in mirroring the original communication, rather than the original form.

Really a poor exp ...

As for the polls go it would have been much better if you had left out the "Title" part and just gave the letters as some people would probably just not take the test and pick whichever title they think is "Coolest" or they m ...

Oyasumi Punpun is probably the most convincing portrait of what it's like to grow up into a role as a furiitaa. It also discusses new religion a bit (it becomes a major theme in the latter half). It's odd for me to say this, considering the surreal bends he go ...
President Election: Obama VS Romney

Quote from Badkarma
Don't visit any animal/pet lover forums; I'd hate to see a picture of your pussy. Or your cock.


It's rather entertaining that anyone supporting Romney gets viewed as a troll. "YOU MUST BE CRAZY!!"

Nice.

The pairings are always wrong, so whatever. In a harem situation the guy always chooses to go for the worst chick. Typically the tsundere kind that is being bratty and annoying the whole series, having no other qualities but the moe stereotyp ...
President Election: Obama VS Romney
(91 posts, 11963 views) Posted: 1548d 6h, 7m ago by Crenshinibon in Chatter Box
Obama by miles. I don't think Romney would be a disaster or even all that bad -- on the contrary, I'm certain he's moderate enough to stay the course and keep a real recovery on the agenda, rather than just swinging to the far right and appea ...

I feel inclined to post the last page of DearS, "professional" translated by Tokyopop were there is a (?) on the text.

I can't blame the thread starter for opening this discussion. Why, I too was once outraged when a slew of my heartfelt comments were all deemed less than constructive by the school principal, who stated that my rendition of the school's morning ann ...

Quote from BlackOrion
It was just an example and you take it as the whole argument, that itself is wrong. Pay atention, i said that probably 8 out of 10 gay men would be hetero if they were to have all their memories wiped and were then re-educated with a normal ...

Quote from BlackOrion

I think he went a little overboard there but what he means, and this is actually easy to prove, is that if you were to clean all memories from a gay man and let he live his life again he would be hetero in 8 out of 10 cases.
This can be proven b ...
Book that made you love reading
(51 posts, 4481 views) Posted: 1672d 10h, 45m ago by Crenshinibon in Chatter Box
I wonder about this all the time. I'm sure I owe an enormous amount to reading both Narnia and The Little Prince at 7-8, but I suspect that books like those really lay more groundwork for transformational experiences than actually produce them.

In my case, ...
2nd person point of view?

margaretman2 is correct. Your use of terminology is totally incorrect.

1st person = I "I ate an apple."
2nd person = You (think If on a winter's night a traveler) "You ate an apple"
3rd person = he/she/it "It ate an apple".

Sure, sure... but when you think about it, "American[/url]" is actually pretty vague terminology. North American? Latin American?

Now I'm confused.

Seems the poll maker lacks the English proficiency to write a coherent, p ...

Don't you think it's unfair that metaphor has to be something involving that half and not everybody?


As with the phrase 'like a moth to a candle,' which is clearly unfair to all those not of a lepidopteran persuasion.
