@userr2684291 cold burns. Apparently you haven't watched enough horror movies.
@AIQ The right person and tone can make any bloody thing humorous, but I'm no comedian
@userr2684291 There's a cream for it
Hmm, now that I think about it, there's the awkward funny nerd type of joke where the guy ends up getting badass comebacks wrong, it might fit your pattern @AIQ
 
AIQ
I have no idea what you are saying @M.A.R.
 
Me neither. That much we have in common.
@AIQ Explain your scenario to me, so I could say whether it fits or not
 
AIQ
Well, I have two consecutive sentences. Both end with the same two words. And it doesn't sound good at all.
 
Like what, say, "I've got an ice cream. Gonna save your life one day in the wild, this ice cream"?
 
AIQ
Here is an example: This is what Paula means by golden apples. To be strong, one must consume golden apples.
Yes, that ice cream example works too
Such shitty writing. This is horrible ...

@AIQ Put it in the right context, give it to some bloke who knows how to act like an idiot, and it will draw a chuckle or two
But in itself, no, it's not funny I guess
You want to write something that's already funny. Use exaggeration
 
AIQ
What? No, no, this is serious stuff, I am trying to not make it sound funny or awkward...
 
Well, if you don't like it, might be because it's a bit wordy

@AIQ justenglish.com/article/anastrophe Maybe you should look at this for how to restructure part of the sentence.

My fumble fingers did something (I don't know what) when I was trying to enter a comment to a question. Perhaps someone knows what happened, and can explain it.
When entering a comment, I mistyped half way through, and I was typing words right to left. But they were formatted right to left. How did I do that? How to reverse it? I was able to complete my comment, as the second half was merely a URL link and not part of a sentence. Formatting is back to normal after submitting that comment.

@aminabzz hello there!
Welcome to ELL chat!

If I am talking about a news article, should I say "In a 2016 article of/by The Globe and Mail ... (JournalistName 2016)."
I think the most natural option is "by". However, I feel "by" would be more appropriate if I said the name of the journalist instead of the newspaper there.

Q: Espionage and counter espionage

user26375Are espionage and counter-espionage may be the subject matter of any question that can be posted at the meta site? And if these cases are real, relevant and have effects on many countries?
