@MετάEd Tsedeh
Hwoops déjà dit.
@MattE.Эллен Past Charon.
@crl All Western European languages do. It's just that English has no rrule against stranding like Romance has.
@Mr_Green Actually, you have a question, maybe even a concern. But not a doubt. Doubt is a mistranslation (really a mistaken calque) typical of the Indian subcontinent. Native speakers might have their doubts (PLURAL!) about ghosts or gods or reincarnation, but they only have questions about things they want answers to. If you never again say "I have a doubt" in English, then you will have improved. Honest!!! :)

@tchrist is it a more formal 'bullshit' :))?
yes ok, right, French also have a lot of prepositions, but it's more strict I feel, less natural/flexible than English (where you could even make your own verb + preposition sometimes)

Do you know the 2 closest country names? (hint they are in west-europe)

@crl If we consider the tab as the control, then it's just the little rectangle. This also better matches the physical equivalent than calling the whole physical folder the tab.
Can I say " She exchanged farwells with him"?
or She said farewell to him?
@JustynaNogala Perhaps exchanged farewells, though said their goodbyes is far more common.
11:58 AM
I don't understand, what the is is the meaning of "close"? Sometimes it means "exit" and sometimes else it means "near" ..! Two completely different mean, So which one is correct?
@Shafizadeh They're actually different words (with different pronunciations).
Though, "exit" would be an unusual interpretation of close.
@TRiG yes, but in this context: "pretty close", "close" means "near" ...!
12:10 PM
@TRiG Ah I see. Thx
Are these two sentence correct?
- Happiness is found on the way not at the end of the road. Be happy today.
- How can I be ? :-( My girl friend broked up with me .. I'm at the end of the road !! :-((
@Shafizadeh In some languages (such as Irish), plural markers are not needed directly after a number. English is not such a language, so you need to say Are these two sentences correct?
> Happiness is found on the way, not at the end of the road. Be happy today.
^ I added a comma. I think that's necessary. It certainly aids comprehension.
Ah .. good point :-)
Sorry about your breakup.
And how about second sentence? Is that correct?
@TRiG Thx :-(

@Lawrence ok

Do you say Dinner's ready in a minute or dinner will be ready in a minute?
@JustynaNogala Those mean the same thing, and both are said.

I have a lot of respect for 538.
But 'genuses' is new to me
my inner indignant 13 year old thinks 'why are they pandering to idiots?'
5:03 PM
I asked a question on etiquette on Yahoo answers three weeks ago and still no answers. Yesterday I threw a random question off the top of my head and got three answers in less than an hour.
Q/A sites are strange.
They are!
You can ask any question in chat here.
Unless it is about how to murder someone.
Well those type of questions are good for reddit.
5:09 PM
They always give good answers on how to murder, stalk etc.
@Cerberus Was thinking of you:
I’m not sure which sort of passport you were looking at, given that occupacion is a spelling peculiar to Old French and Middle English. That word is now spelled occupation in present-day French and English; ocupação in Portuguese; ocupación in various “Spanish” languages including Castilian, Asturian, Galician, and Aragonese; ocupació in Catalan; occupazione in Italian; and ocupație in Romanian. All derive from the Latin occupātio, occupātiōnis. — tchrist ♦ 1 hour ago
I would hardly notice if you swapped any of those spellings.
The Romanian one I would notice.
5:12 PM
@freebird That's so rude!!
It's also interesting the way Middle English aligns with Old French.
They're late to the game
It raises the obvious question of which Romance tongue corresponds temporally with Old English; Tadpole French, perhaps?
@Mitch Yep!
@Cerberus You can ask if that's the right way to say it.
5:15 PM
@Mitch Once someone asked there "How do I make sure the girl I love never leaves me?" One of the highest voted answer was like this "Go near her while having a dinner at your favorite restaurant and say these three magic words: I am armed. She will be yours and will never leave you".
Well they are just having fun.
I upvoted that shit too lol.
It might work
@Mitch Absolutely, you can meta-ask anything!
@Cerberus Android support isn't especially well-received on M.ELU.

Senex Ægypti ParviI do internet solely per my telephone. I do not like to use: doubled-hyphen for em-dash foot-mark for single-quote inch-mark for double-quote and suchlike atrocities.

realizes has to go to meta meta to search
You can't ask "How could I ask how to kill someone properly?"
Note I'm not asking that.
I saying that you can't ask that.
No, you can ask that question too.
You will definitely get upvotes. But pick the right website.
I don't think so, because the answer to it would be enabling someone to ask it, which itself would be a bad thing.
5:21 PM
Yes it is all bad. Which is kind of the point. It is fun.
Hm.. but then any taboo subject would be off limits in meta.
Wtf. I still haven't signed up on the mother site of this chat room.
@freebird is that the real mother or the adoptive mother or the biological mother?
A: Typographically correct data entry via telephone. How?

CerberusYes, or at least the following will accomplish your ultimate goal: Root your Android. Install Xposed. Install Xposed Macro Expand. Enable Xposed Macro Expand, through the modules list inside the Xposed application (or through the installation notification). Create macros like qwq → " in order t...

@Mitch All three I suppose. Don't ask me how.
It's complicated
Yeah I need morning coffee now. My brain just gave up.
Wow, this Reg user is quite an orator.
5:30 PM
@Cerberus How do you root an android? Do you have to open it up?
In a good way.
@Mitch Bury it.
@PhMgBr waits for shoots to appear
@Mitch First you varicate it, then seminate and morate until rooted.
Preferably aquate regularly.
@Cerberus This is a family chat room. I'm shocked at your vulgarity.
pix plz
5:35 PM
What the fudge is that?
Type of plough.
> tchrist offers no answer, and ends the discussion.
That kinda hurts. I offer many non answers but people insist on continuing without me.
We should delete that.
For values of we limited to ELU mods.
5:40 PM
@tchrist flagged
I'm surprised it doesn't have a 'delete' button on it.
It’s a failed migration stub.
Migrant questions are subject to severe lockdown actions.

Nice to meet you too @tchrist :p
It’s the no hay choosers one.

@freebird Likewise I'm Shirley.
@Mitch Petitio mendicorum?
> There is a Shirley in everyone's lifetime. Someone to add sunshine to another's gloomy day.
No homo btw :)
Wow, you guys use difficult vocabulary here at times. I was reading the transcript and had to open a dictionary in another tab. I will be damned.
@freebird That's when Rob was here.
@freebird Likely.
5:48 PM
@tchrist Uhh, not quite.
What's rob?
@PhMgBr Oh right, I never do that.
@tchrist Man, people don't understand you, not your words. :P
@freebird Certainly not edible
@freebird abigo
5:50 PM
Don't mind me, I'm just fooling around. :)
@freebird Like what?
@freebird Odysseus, is that you?
Question, how many times have you rotated your necks to look at smiley in a deeper way?
@tchrist I closed the tab. I'll check the history...
@PhMgBr Never. I stand inviolate and rotate the world to suit my Weltanschauung.
5:56 PM
resolute even
Oh, so you rotate the world?
oops, my Zeitgeist got in your Weltschmerz
@Mitch No, I fancy the more energetic spectra.
Considering you're TC, that's . . . unsurprising.
@PhMgBr Eppur si muove.

@PhMgBr that's tautological. He could be no one else. Unless, his parents switched both him and his name at birth.

infraviolet, infer a rose.
@freebird Awaiting I await your words.
@Mitch Isn't that something muslims say?
@tchrist I wouldn't trust anything botty for an Arabic–English/Spanish/Perl translation if I were you.
@freebird Yeah, it's basically "In the name of God"
@freebird More likely uncloseted linens.
@PhMgBr The Lord of the Flies no botulism needs.
For botulism needs but sausages alone not daemonic intervention.
@freebird The only way I know of it is through the song Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen.
@PhMgBr google translate is great for really common translation pairs, but not so great for uncommon pairs. I've heard the Welsh-Tamil translation just can't get tenses right.
@tchrist "tendention" was one word from yesterday's chat. I had heard the word but wasn't exactly sure what it meant. It was pretty clear form the context though still confirmed by checking the dictionary.
6:10 PM
@Mitch For quite some of the Persian/Arabic translations, it even fails that.
@freebird that's a word? I thought I made it up.
@Mitch Hah yeah your word exactly :)
@Mitch Why would something you made up not be a word?
I suppose it might be your face instead, but I find this unlikely.
@PhMgBr it's amazing how good it really is given that no rule based grammar is used, just (well, not 'just') ngrams
Mmm, I believe unfair ngrams have also been used.
6:17 PM
@tchrist If I made up my face, it'd be the kind where you could't tell I had make up. It's the 'natural' look.
I hate it when people make up faces to save story.
@tchrist just because I made something up doesn't necessarily make it a thing. thing-like maybe.
@tchrist Is that why you gave up TV?
Reïfication is for losers.
@Mitch No, because life is short and it pleases the eye to see the sun.
Wow, on quora we can't ask a question with more than 300 something words. That sucks. Some folks give good answers there, if only they had no words limit. Sighs
@tchrist Rheaform is for diarrhea control in horses. Also it is neurotoxic
6:24 PM
> Yahoo answer Q: Should I dump my dogfriend?
@Mitch By the way, I just realised you may have been serious: how you root an Android device depends on the device. A few cannot be rooted; most can be rooted with one or more of the tens of rooting methods available.
@PhMgBr Outside of a dog, a book is man’s best friend.
> Quora Q: Let's discuss some politics.
Better depend on the book.
@tchrist Also a chemicals's best friend
6:25 PM
@PhMgBr "Outlook not so good"
Inside of a dog it’s too dark to read anyway.
@Cerberus I actually was serious. I have an iPhone and heard that they cannot be rooted so I never bothered. Entirely colored by childhood experiences with curiosity in taking apart an old television set, after having physically ripped out parts of it (instead of unscrewing, I got to the bottom of it and found a vacuum that had fallen out of its socket. True story.
@PhMgBr I could answer that, but it would only hurt you.
I hereby nominate you the mod of "How to be a douchbag SE?". No, not you.
@Mitch Oh, no, you never do anything physical! It's all software.
6:27 PM
Sorry still learning how to ping the correct person.
With Iphones, it's called jailbreaking, not rooting.
Most Iphones can be jailbroken.
@Cerberus on android and on iphone?
@Cerberus with software?
on iphone?
6:28 PM
Yes 2.
tries to root iphone
Maybe you need to run the software in Windows and let it jailbreak your phone through Itunes, or something.
You'd have to Google it.

Those are some cool designs.
how do I turn this back?
6:30 PM
If you look at it through a mirror it is still hard to understand
Just to bring some realism to the whole story, really, if we find evidence of life on another planet, it might be a collection of organic chemicals and that's it.
Use Google translator it recognises all the stupid things.
the best we could hope for is maybe virus like exposed DNA, or DNA-like stuff

I think you’re slipping is what I think.
How dare you.
Dare anyone contradict me?
@freebird no hay problema
No equestrian problems in this chat.
@tchrist By answering that with a question, is that an inherent gainsaying?
@tchrist Rheaform will take care of that.
What's the word for how rock acts like a liquid under extremely high pressure and millions of years of time?
6:37 PM
@Mitch bueno!
Starts with 'rh'
I think
No dinornids in this chat.
You know...al q&A sites suck, but some suck less than others. ELU has a good UX.
@tchrist I dino right!
@Mitch And a bad wind ooze.
Moa involvement couldn’t hurt.
Also, those South Asian scripts are crazee. It's so obvious one guy invented one alphabet, and a guy in the next state saw it briefly and thought they'd make up one too -totally- independently. Like Cherokee, if you squint it looks roman, but the pronunciation is like a permutation of English sounds.
Like Irish (@TRiG) What a mess!!
6:45 PM
So there is no PM option in these chats?
How can we backbite others then? ;)
Seriously why? That sucks.
ok all public and stuff I guess.
@freebird Because “bad things happen in the dark”.
Ah I get it. True.
6:53 PM
The point of SE is to provide help for future visitors.
Things unseen cannot help them.
@freebird what is PM?
Program manager? Project manager? Penguin mastication?
Hah! Gotcha! Birds don't have teeth! hah aha ha h ah ah ha ha aaha ha ahha ah. ha ha ha
They have beaks.
Personal Message.
hangs head in shame
@freebird oh. that seems queen bee secretive.
oh. you guys just said that.
@Mitch You wouldn’t need so much of that if only you cooked them better.
7:03 PM
@Mitch So I heard somewhere that harvesting honey is like taking away the life savings of a beehive against their will. I thought bees liked that.
@freebird Harvesting beef is like taking away the life of the cow against its will.
Yeah, that too.
And many others...
The Brahmic scripts are a family of abugida writing systems. They are used throughout South Asia, Southeast Asia and parts of East Asia, and were once used in Japan, and are descended from the Brahmi script of ancient India. They are used by languages of several language families: Indo-European, Dravidian, Tibeto-Burman, Mongolic, Austroasiatic, Austronesian, Turkic, Tai. They were also the source of the dictionary order of Japanese kana. == History == Brahmic scripts are descended from the Brahmi script. Brahmi is clearly attested from the 3rd century BC during the reign of Ashoka, who used the...
basically they're all the same from Tibetan to Devanagari to Tamil to Java to Bali. And everywhere in between.
@tchrist There's a thing the ethiopians do... or is it Maasai?... where they just take a little of the cow. like a pounds worth.
7:08 PM
I have heard that too.
@tchrist Harvesting wheat is grassicide
@freebird one of them makes blood-milk. Very non-kosher/halal
@Mitch When I was very young I used eat the insides of my cheeks. I think I know the cow's feeling minus like ten raise to the power twenty pain.
Now I feel sick.
Ok forget I said that.
Dammit everything damn thing is being saved in the transcripts. It is a trap!
7:23 PM
By their postings shall ye know them.
@freebird You can edit chat messages.

It's available for only two minutes to mere mortals though.

@freebird You can delete your own messages within the same timeout as editing (90 seconds?).
or say 'jk'
or 'I meant "when a friend was very young"'
@Mitch Six score.
@PhMgBr wishes hard to be unmere
@tchrist oh
I thought it felt longer
@NVZ Easier to chat here.
all this typing is annyoing. where's my thought interface?
You wanna know what I really think?
Probably not.
Whatever gives you that idea?
9:14 PM
worries about going to the dentist
also mowing the lawn. early spring has its dowsides
waking up in the morning is a drag
There that's what I really think.
Ooh forgot one.
@Mitch Then kick off your high heels and shed that old frock before you hit the hay.
finite numbers, like 'three' and 'seventeen' are operationally existent just like other attributes like 'red' or 'door, making mathematical concepts platonic realities as much as sensations
well, neo-platonic. Plato was kind of an jerk/authoritarian
So there, those are my thoughts.. See? you didn't want to know them.
well, the dentist thing is kinda useful.
@Mitch Blow no trumpet of numberless infinities lest so many souls to their scattered bodies go.
Waking the dead. Unless by scattered you imply that individual bodies are not in together piece. then that's kinda gross
> At the round earth's imagin'd corners, blow
Your trumpets, angels, and arise, arise
From death, you numberless infinities
Of souls, and to your scatter'd bodies go;
All whom the flood did, and fire shall o'erthrow,
All whom war, dearth, age, agues, tyrannies,
Despair, law, chance hath slain, and you whose eyes
Shall behold God and never taste death's woe.
But let them sleep, Lord, and me mourn a space,
For if above all these my sins abound,
'Tis late to ask abundance of thy grace
When we are there; here on this lowly ground
'T is not too late to seek a newer world
Push off
and sitting well in order
I was feeling ok this morning until I got verse.
I blame the Clintons.
9:57 PM
"you are cut off" means "get lost" ?
@Shafizadeh Not especially. Context?
Man: I want your breast please.
Woman: you're cut off
10:27 PM
@Shafizadeh That means that she's telling him she's cutting him off from any more of something, probably alcohol but maybe sex.
I see
My guess is booze.
Could be other types of drugs, or anything really.
yeah I guess you are right
11:26 PM
in other words, if you cut something off you remove it from what it had a connection with, so saying you're "cut off" means no more for you
get lost
11:43 PM
Good explanation.
