    Respectful Politics Thread (Let's Just See)

    I don’t much disagree with the rest of the post, but this is very much incorrect. America was later to the party than many of its piers in Europe. Here’s a timeline of slavery and its abolition in the West...

    The Language Thread

    The Latin Script, Part II: The Diacritic Letters Now beyond the ‘basic 26’, the Latin script has a world of color to be found in the alphabets that use it. To start with, diacritics are glyphs or marks added to existent Latin letters that we already use, to add distinct sounds. I’m gonna post...

    What's your favorite letter segment?

    I really gotta know: what are your favorite segments for Ж, З, Ξ, Δ, Þ, and ß?

    The Language Thread

    The Latin Script, Part I: The Original Letters and Subsequent Additions When we think about the Latin alphabet, we typically think of the classic English 26. However, the ancient Romans had only 23 letters in their Latin alphabet. Here they are: A B C D E F G H I K L M N O P Q R S T V X Y Z...

    Columbus was a game-changer in world history, yes, but he does not deserve to be celebrated just for that sake. He was a violent and cruel taskmaster whose actions caused the deaths of many native people he came in contact with. Even his own people felt he was too harsh and had him jailed...

    Is there anything you guys would like me to post about with this subject? If not, a breakdown of the Latin script will be heading your way shortly.

    The Language Thread

    Inspired by the What Made You Think Today? thread, in which @fuzzygobo wrote the following: ...and I followed up with: Alphabets happen to be a very serious special interest of mine, and our posts got me thinking about doing more breakdowns from around the world of language. Hence this...

    What Made you Think Today?

    While ch, rr, and ll have traditionally been considered separate letters, they have lately been labeled as digraphs - two letters which together make a distinct sound, like how ch is used in English. Let’s look at the German alphabet. There are a solid number of digraphs as well, but as far as...

    Official: “Muppets Now”, an unscripted short-form series coming to Disney+ on July 31, 2020

    D’Snowth is onto something. I fear that companies are making a big mistake by everyone having their own streaming service. If people want to watch all the multitude of shows they’re interested in, they’ll soon — and starting now — have to use several streaming services to do it. The more...

    Thank you. I can see your perspective, and for what it’s worth, on this case I find myself a lot more aligned with your thoughts than I expected to be. Apology accepted.

    If you like something further, I too feel that Gavry was unrealistic when he posted about him “running away” and that he’d received a “death sentence” because they don’t really fit the case well. Still no reason to attack me for something he wrote. You also have a tendency to treat other people...

    How are you inferring that from my post? All I said was that I read speculation on this. I watched the video to see if that speculation was justified. The speculation, by the way, was based in part from a cop’s own testimony. Unfortunately I do not have the link on hand and may be unable to find...

    I read speculation about the event that the police may have clapped the cuffs on him maliciously, tighter than it should have been, to intensify the incident. Particularly telling is that he flipped out only when the cuffs were actually being put on him. Up to then everything was civil enough...
