What's the expression of the figures in In a Roman Osteria called?

@Cerberus quite the uproar about that girl who starved herself to death
(at first they were saying it was euthanasia)
are the psychiatric care clinics so backed up that she couldn't get an appointment to see a specialist?

@skillpatrol Oh, I had no idea that was in the news abroad.
I don't know the details; it wasn't really big news here.
A tragic incident?
It is true that the government has cut expenses on mental health.
And there are waiting lists.
Which is really bad.
 
Yeah, tragic.
 
Though I think it wasn't really psychiatry that is getting less money, but rather psychologists.
(Or perhaps they get the same amount of money, but with more patients.)
 
yup, that's what I meant
I just follow BBC a lot
Because they have the best cricket coverage.
 
The only time I saw one was when he was gonna OK me for the operation
I tend to think I'm mentally healthy though, so can't judge the efficacy of their treatments
The answer is NO. — electronpusher 13 hours ago
Ugh, chemistry puns.
 
a radical NO at that :P
are you still on a lot of medication after your operation? @M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ
 
12:16 PM
Depends, what does "a lot" mean?
 
any?
a lot
 
It has reduced greatly since the operation, but I'm gonna have to take these for the rest of my life, and they still count as a lot by most standards
I take 6 pills of one, 3 of another, and 1.5 of another. These three are 'fixed' drugs. They won't ever go away
There are other drugs but they're either to reduce the toxicity of immunosuppressors or just some vitamins
 
Oh! When was your operation? I didn't know.
Was it the transplant?

@RegDwigнt More of a feat than an accomplishment, I'd say.
Nah, feat is too strong. Call it a trick.

@Robusto how 'bout them raptors?

@Robusto well whatever your label for it, I can't do it.
Busy slacking.

@RegDwigнt Actually, stunt is the word I was looking for this morning.

@Robusto I see. Well, I hope you can find it again. Look under the fridge.
 
Cat's litter box
Garage
Areas of the bed you haven't fully explored

Please provide a sample sentence where the word decision needs replacing by another. You may find the ambiguity of certain words in the English language unsatisfactory, but the rest of us get by all right. It seems worse in other languages — the Germans don't generally distinguish between rabbits and hares — but it's just psychology. — David 2 hours ago
I am yet to meet a single German that doesn't distinguish between rabbits and hares.
I don't know many languages, but all languages that I know do distinguish between rabbits and hares. So when people get them confused it's just them being people rather than [insert nationality]. And we can't even blame them for that, because rabbits and hares do look a great deal alike.
This is about to turn into the weirdest comment that I have left in quite some time, but I would like to humbly submit that Germans do generally distinguish between rabbits and hares. And it's not just psychology, it's actually two completely different words that mean two completely different things. Ein Hase ist kein Kaninchen, und das weiß jedes Kind. It seems worse in English — they don't generally distinguish between turtles and tortoises — and it's not just psychology, even experts in casual conversation get them mixed up. — RegDwigнt ♦ 11 mins ago
Now turtles, on the other hand. What is it with the English and not being able to tell a turtle from a not turtle.
 
11:26 PM
@RegDwigнt It was already there.
