@Robusto For Lenin, yeah. But not for those who still believe in his theory of vanguardism.

Cerberus: perhaps that shopuld be "ballixed up": spectator.co.uk/2019/07/…
 
9:28 AM
@Cerberus I don't understand why a search engine would do that. The Safe Search toggle is there for a reason.

@Færd It doesn't. The author applied some censoring filter, whence also the censored word "fuck".
@TimLymington Haha, nice.
Why the i and the x?
 
@Færd I concur.
@TimLymington What are you banging on at him about that for? I'm the one who spelt it bolix. And you didin't seem to have a problem with the -ix ending, so ... ?

> Last week, the Berkeley, Calif., City Council voted to change the city’s municipal code to include gender-neutral language. Along with replacing “he” and “she” with “they” and “them,” words such as manholes will be known as maintenance holes, man-made will be human made and pregnant women will be replaced with pregnant employees.
And will manufacturers be replaced by maintenancefacturers? Manifold by maintenancefold? Manner by ... pregnant employees?
You know, I sure wish the left wing of this country would stop giving the right wing sticks to beat us with.
Also, the way that quote reads, "pregnant women will be replaced with pregnant employees" seems to imply that all pregnant women in Berkeley will be hired by the city.
 
Oh my America! my new-found land, My kingdom, safeliest when with one person personn'd.
And my previous comment was just a gentle hint that bollix is not free of connotations.
 
@TimLymington A superfluous hint, as I am well aware of its connotations. And I chose the word and the spelling precisely because they suited what I wanted to say.
 
I, on the other hand, hardly ever mean what I say.
 
3:19 PM
@Mitch I didn't say I meant it. I merely said I wanted to say it.
 
@Robusto Ooh. A twist in the plot.
 
Indeed, it thickens.
 
Like the juice from a pot roast.
I"m so hungry right now.
 
Thankfully, that's an easy problem to solve.
 
Lots of variables to consider.
 
3:39 PM
Analysis paralysis.
 
@Robusto Exactly.
 
3:59 PM
Going back...
 
@Cerberus But nobody would actually want to make such a change like 'maintenancefold'. That's silly to think that that is desired by those who want 'humankind'.
 
Dear Council, I expect you as a non-sexist organizatron to maintain a gender balance in all classes of employee. I am shocked to see that all your pregnant employees identify as female, and trust you will remedy this forthwith.
 
The Free Dictionary is the worst.
 
Feel free to look up humor in the dictionary of your choice.
 
4:32 PM
@Mitch To me, they're both almost equally silly.
@TimLymington Yes! They're no doubt violating some diversity code.
@Robusto It is in my Latin dictionary.
But not in my English one.
 
[ SmokeDetector | MS ] Bad keyword in answer, blacklisted website in answer, link at end of answer, potentially bad keyword in answer (239): Are there any English words pronounced with consonants that aren't part of the spelling? by karlyshey on english.SE
 
@Cerberus Well it's a good thing to think of so that one doesn't blind do a regexp search-replace badly.
 
@Mitch Well, that is almost what this movement seems like to me.
I think it is very similar to the literalism employed by religious fanatics, like Puritans.
Is it a coincidence that this developed in America, with its religiosity?
And with that particular kind of religiosity.

5:40 PM
There is also the industry that is paid (out of taxes) to take offence at words like blackguard and niggardly. Anyone who cares for language (which is presumably all of us here) needs to mock and despise such people.
 
@Mitch Well of course. If you're seeking to eliminate the man out of every noun, then humankind would not suffice. It'd have to be something like personkind.
You'd also have to call humans by the latinate name homo-sapiens.
 
Huperson, surely.
 
@TimLymington Jes. Jespersen. Otto Jespersen.
 
Also, regarding a gender neutral alternative for manhole, well, maintenancehole is somewhat of a mouthful, but surely sewerhole would work for most cases.
 
5:56 PM
@Cerberus Possibly. There is certainly a herd instinct here, for all the talk about individual freedoms.
Americans, it turns out, are just like everyone else. Only more so.
@TimLymington I once told a bureaucrat that a policy of her bureau was asinine and she refused to talk to me because I was "swearing" ...
 
Then again, sewer has sew in it, which associates it with sewing...
 
@Tonepoet Just like my shoes, they're also red. Nike Downshifter 8.
 
@Tonepoet Well, a person who sews ought to be a sewer, no?
 
And a person who is part of a tank crew is a tanker
 
And a person who handles butts is a butter.
 
6:00 PM
@Robusto Homoglyphs are confusing for the whole family! XP
 
Hours of fun.
 
And what kind of person is scatter, I wonder
 
@CowperKettle A jazz singer.

Jinx, @Tonepoet. You owe me a coke.
 
Thank you.
I like a man who pays his debts promptly without protest.
The black-crowned night heron (Nycticorax nycticorax), or black-capped night heron, commonly shortened to just night heron in Eurasia, is a medium-sized heron found throughout a large part of the world, except in the coldest regions and Australasia (where it is replaced by the closely related rufous night heron, with which it has hybridized in the area of contact). == Description == Adults are approximately 64 cm (25 in) long and weigh 800 g (28 oz). They have a black crown and back with the remainder of the body white or grey, red eyes, and short yellow legs. They have pale grey wings and white...
@tchrist: ^^^
Saw one on a ride the other day.
Also, I just love saying the name nycticorax nycticorax.
 
@Robusto Which man do you like? =P
 
Excuse me, I meant maintenance there.
 
7:01 PM
@Cerberus I can still recognize most of the actresses, and indeed even most of the actors.
Meaning to say, this is better than Picasso. Nobody can recognize anything in his shit.
@Robusto but that is the whole purpose of the left. Its whole philosophy. Its whole purpose. Abraham will always win against Jesus.
 
7:28 PM
@RegDwigнt Name them.
Without cheating.
@Robusto I was rather thinking of the importance of words.
Words as magic: that is essential to many religions, and to orthodox Protestantism in particular.
Cursing is taboo, it must be censored.
Each word in the Bible must be weighed on a gold platter by Calvinists.
(I am again probably using a non-existent expression.)
 
7:48 PM
 
8:32 PM
@CowperKettle where is your four horsemen cartoon from, and do you have an interpretation of it? (I like it a lot.)
 
9:10 PM
@Cerberus Charity Crawford, Jessica Jaymes, Dolly Little, Kagney Linn Karter. Uh, Ella Hughes or Nikki Rhoades, I'm not quite sure actually. Then Autumn Falls, Veronica Leal, then — wait, haha, nice try. How would you even know.
Maybe I've just made all of these up. Or maybe all of these fine actresses are black.
You can't even google for them, because then everyone would know that you're not gay.
@Cerberus Also, how would I even cheat. Even if I somehow managed to get the exact same set of search results unobfuscated, in the exact same order, which would be a miracle in its own right, even then easily eight out of nine wouldn't name the people involved.
It would never be titled "Dolly Little", it would be titled "tiny redhead enjoys giant meat rocket" or some such.
And now I have to post a bunch of other things for this to scroll out of view. Thank you for that.

Q: After the money you ..........stolen, you can't buy this car

Mahmoud MansourAfter the money you ..........stolen, you can't buy this car. ( had been - have been - had had been - had has been) after a deep thought through this question .. i found that have been is the right answer .. so why do you think that we can't choose the other answers ? Answer scientifically...

> Answer scientifically with translation
What.
 
10:01 PM
@RegDwigнt The guy is a learner. He barely has the vocab/grammar in English to express what he knows much less what he doesn't know. So migrate or whatever.
 
10:41 PM
@RegDwigнt I think the OP figured it out: After the money you had, has been stolen, you can’t boy the car. First comma just to separate the verbs.
 
@Xanne Also note my comment after yours.
 
10:59 PM
@RegDwigнt It was actually not that hard to find names.
The second picture, the one with the turquoise background, seems to be called Laura, possibly Laura Elite: cloudygirls.com/porn/…
I could find out more names, but I'm bored with porn already.
 
@mitch so now you get to write the answer :)
 
11:50 PM
@Xanne 1) It was closed so no official answers (I think I voted so). 2) you would have had priority and 3) some other third thing. I was just commenting because so many people had said 'no there's absolutely no good answer, and certainly not one of those 4'. A whole bunch of people on the internet were wrong and I could not let that stand.
