Is Brazil the only Portuguese-speaking country in So. America?
 
1:02 PM
Officially.
 
Pockets exist in other countries?
 
Portuguese is the official language in Brazil, Mozambique, Angola, Portugal, Guinea-Bissau, East Timor, Equatorial Guinea, Cape Verde, and São Tomé and Príncipe.
 
Thousands of people died the fort
 
A Comunidade dos Países de Língua Portuguesa comprises nine member states.
But that doesn’t mean nobody else speaks it.
My catsitter is Portuguese. :)
 
@tchrist That's what I was asking when I said "Pockets exist in other [South American] countries?"
 
1:04 PM
But his Spanish is better than his Portuguese; he’s a native English speaker.
 
Pockets of Portuguese speakers.
Enclaves, so to speak.
OK, time for my Mac EFI Security Update 2015-001.
So I will leave you all for a while.
 
Yes.
@Robusto In Uruguay and Paraguay in particular.
Not Portuguay. :)
Visitors from neighboring South American countries who visit Brazil often come speaking a Portuñol creole, but that hardly counts.
 
Do you know to say that someone gives somebody to death ?
 
I don' t know what that means .
Kills someone?
 
something like turn sb in
yes
how to say that in the best way
 
1:12 PM
Gives them up for dead is something else.
You mean when somebody reports the poor person to some death-dealing agency and thereby condemns that person to death?
“Was complicit in the murder of”
 
look
Rabbi said he was not the one who gave them lives and would not be the one...
to give them up for dead/?
 
there are 5 hits in google books of "gave him over to death"
 
to send them to death ?
 
I am unimpress.
> “Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement.”
 
@RegDwigнt Yikes! That looks like a new city.
But which one? They all look alike.
 
1:18 PM
@JustynaNogala That might be better, yes.
 
which one ?
to send to death ? right ?
 
Possibly, yes.
 
@JustynaNogala " . . . he was not the one who gave them their lives so he would not be the one to send them to their deaths."
 
"to their deaths" sounds kinda artificially to me
its like everyone of them would die a different death
What is to be said is that the will be executed i.e either shot or buried alive
the will die the same death
 
Each man's death is his own.
 
1:25 PM
@Cerberus yeah, barely 3000 years old. With early traces of civilization going back a measly 270000 years.
First hint of scale:
 
@JustynaNogala Who you gonna trust, me or your own sense of English?
 
@Robusto haha nonono you must never ask her that.
I tried, it did me no good.
Besides, you full well know the answer.
 
Ah me.
 
everyone can be wrong
 
@JustynaNogala What are the odds that your sense of English is better than mine? Seriously.
 
1:28 PM
I can't trust anyone
 
OK, you have trust issues. I get that.
 
I didn't say that
:D
 
Fact: some people have full-time jobs making up for other people's ineptitude at being wrong.
 
How do I know you're not telling me the wrong answers?
 
why are you asking, then?
you might as well write it out on a piece of paper and imagine the conversation.
 
1:29 PM
@JustynaNogala How do you know you're not asking us the wrong questions?
 
@JustynaNogala If your level of distrust is that deep, nothing I can say to you will convince you that I am sincere in my effort to help you. Not only sincere, but immensely competent.
 
Also, rich and handsome.
 
Oh my god

@JustynaNogala " . . . he was not the one who gave them their lives so he would not be the one to send them to their deaths."
 
I was joking
hahaha
ok let me go back to work
 
1:31 PM
Oh hahahaha, now I get it. Haha.
 
Humor is the hardest thing to translate.
 
in internet noöne can hear you sarcasm
 
good point
 
1. Take humor. 2. Take some C-4 and a crowbar. 3. Translate.
 
@Cerberus it looks like Carthage?
 
1:34 PM
Carthage against the machine.
 
@RegDwigнt is it a literal heat map of Addis Ababa?
 
In other news: Apple is buying Tunisia and renaming its capital iTunis.
 
I will buy Apple and rename it iPple
 
You can't afford to buy Apple these days.
Nobody can.
 
I'll trick them to sell it to me for some fake deeds I don't own. TheTaj Mahal and Buckingham Palace or something
 
1:39 PM
I think Apple already owns Buckingham Palace. Better check again.
Seriously, can you imagine the queen using a Windows PC?
I wonder if the queen tweets.
 
I can't imagine her using anything that isn't steam powered
 
So that's where all the steam is going. Seriously, what does the queen do all day?
 
@MattE.Эллен no, and this shall be the last hint: it is a literal heat map of the price of tea.
 
I can't imagine being presented to the queen. How bizarre would that be? And how much more bizarre if you were high at the time?
 
not much more bizarre, probably. Already lots of bright colours and an incomprehensibleness to proceedings
 
1:42 PM
@Robusto a coworker of mine holds a couple shares. I think if you do the math, the portion of the company he owns is the size of one Tim Cook. But Tim Cook runs the entire thing, ergo my coworker holds the entire company.
 
@MattE.Эллен If you laugh during the proceedings do they throw you in the Tower?
 
depends if the Queen told a joke or was being serious
 
@Robusto tea, signing boring papers, tea, gossip, tea, gossip, signing boring papers, tea, rocking us, making supersonic men out of us, tea, sleep.
 
Surely at here age she has signed all the papers there are to sign.
Unless they're just giving her make-work.
 
but it must be done in triplicate
 
1:45 PM
No, she forgot the one paper saying "I herewith have signed the last of you".
 
How many fucking papers do you have in England? And why haven't you digitized them by now?
???
 
LOL DUDE. How do you sign a digitized paper???? She's a Queen, not a megabyte.
You've really not been to the Middle Ages, you noob.
 
A monarch is merely another form of arch.
 
Not unlike this one.
 
the image available at molon.de arch
molon: a colon made of moles
 
1:49 PM
Molon: a Chinese moron.
 
Molon labe (in greek μολὼν λαβέ) is the gun nut's favorite tee shirt these days.
 
Μολον λαμπε
 
Shia Labe (in Transformese) is Michael Bay's.
 
Only the twits spell it in all caps.
 
@MattE.Эллен Maly had a little lamp.
 
1:51 PM
that's how the Greeks say it :D
 
The Greeks didn't even have guns.
 
@RegDwigнt . . .tea, making fake pics of her stand in a sandwich queue, tea. . .
 
"Octomber" is my favourite
 
I'm fine with gun nuts owning spears and bronze swords and all that.
 
What does the Greek say? Ring-ding-ding-ding-dingeringeding! Wa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pow! Hatee-hatee-hatee-ho!
 
1:52 PM
Hey guys, sorry for my shtoopid jumping in.
 
@RegDwigнt Yes, but the old inner city is only a tiny speck compared to the new, sprawling suburbs, right?
Peking?
 
I'm double-triple-quad-multitasking now.
 
@Cerberus ding ding ding.
 
I knew it.
 
Which is Greek for something.
 
1:53 PM
I'm afraid not.
 
It is.
Otherwise the Greek wouldn't say "Ring-ding-ding-ding-dingeringeding!"
 
In Greek, you can't have an ng sound followed by nothing.
 
I thought that was Nokia.
 
Nor even an ngg sound followed by nothing.
 
@Cerberus Exactly! Which is why they follow it up by a D or an exclamation mark.
 
1:54 PM
@RegDwigнt That sounds more like Dutch.
 
Someone help Cerberus out.
 
@RegDwigнt I don't think that is possible either. Greek has rather strict phonological rules.
 
My cousin is in Peking now.
She is wearing a mouth cap on most days.
 
Better tell her to duck!
 
1:54 PM
My posse is on Broadway.
 
She is female.
 
He is male
 
She is always female. And he is always male.
jinxish
 
Really??
 
1:55 PM
I am always lol.
 
@MattE.Эллен NO U
 
You Englishers are so wise.
bows to room
 
Love is a bird, he needs to fly.
 
what to call an enormous cemetery ?
 
Susan.
Call it Susan.
 
1:55 PM
xDD
 
L'amour est un oiseau rebelle.
 
@JustynaNogala Is it full of lawyers?
 
Wiser than the river Danube
 
Or Your Mom.
 
you and your sense of humor
 
1:56 PM
Call it Your Mom.
 
^ Sounds rather feminine.
Oops, I misspole.
 
Can't Understand Nothing Today!
 
@MattE.Эллен Tommy Wiseau than the river Danube.
 
It is un oiseau.

1:56 PM
Rebelle sounded so feminine.
 
L'amour est un Wiseau rebeil.
 
I'm sure @Robusto knows the line.
And Reg too, prolly.
 
Il faut l'apprivoiser.
@Cerberus no, I only know the lines before and after. Sorry!
 
@RegDwigнt I knew it!
 
1:58 PM
Carmen, of course.
 
@RegDwigнt Lies.
Is there a line before it?
 
Car-Man is a Russian techno/pop band. It was one of the top Soviet/Russian bands in the early and mid nineties. Car-Man created massive fan following that ranged from music and dance to hair styles and speech. The band won a number of top prizes in 1991. Car-Man was formed in 1990 by Sergey Lemokh and Bogdan Titomir. In 1991 the band split - Lemokh stayed with Car-Man, while Titomir started a solo project, called High Energy. Car-Man released 6 major albums and number of secondary albums of live and re-mixed music. == Albums == == Secondary Albums == == See also == Sergey Lemokh Bogdan Titomir...
 
@Robusto Of course.
 
lets say there are 10000 bodies buried in the woods. The place of the burial has no boundaries is it still a cemetery ?
 
@Cerberus Not one that is sung.
 
1:59 PM
@JustynaNogala it's definitely a burial ground
 
@JustynaNogala No, it'll be called nature then.
 
@Robusto Right.
@JustynaNogala No, more like a mass grave.
