The words freedom and liberty, are diminishing the true meaning of the abstract concept they try to explain. The true nature of freedom is such, that the human mind is unable to comprehend it, so we make a cage and name it freedom in order to give a tangible meaning to what we dont understand, just as our ancestors made gods like Thor or Zeus to explain thunder.



What? You thought it was a quote from some well known wise guy from the past?


Stupidity leads to willful ignorance - willful ignorance leads to hope - hope leads to sex - and that is how a new generation of fools is born!

We are hardcore role players... When we go to bed with a girl, we roll a D20 to see if we hit the target and a D6 to see how much penetration damage we did.


Modern democracy is: the sheep voting for which dog will be the shepherd's right hand.

This was me while reading the Watchmen for the first time. Everyone else is all, "It's great!" And I'm like, yeah except for the plot. But that's every Alan Moore comic. Dude just sucks at endings.

I'd be suspicious of the "information" found here, and for information found on the twitter site it references as there's no real 'fact checking' done.


For example slang does not mean "short language", its actual etymology is unknown (some posit a Scandinavian origin, while OED disputes this) and Tag's etymology is from Scottish 'tig' which itself probably comes from Middle English 'tek' for touch or tap.


Glancing through the linked twitter page I see some other errors like the etymology of the brand name Adidas (its from the founders name, Adi Dasseler not "All Day I Dream About Sports").  While scalp does have a mnemonic that makes it easy to remember, its etymology is from Middle English Skalp or Scalpe, neither of which match the mnemonic


And finally while the bear that Winnie the Pooh is partially named for was female (she was named for the city of Winnepeg), Winnie the Pooh is referred to in the books as "he".

Edit: yes this is the funny things thread, so feel free to lewl at it, even if you don't take it 100% seriously. :)

Just what do you think you're doing?! You dare to come between me and my prey? Is it a habit of yours to scurry about, getting in the way and causing bother?


What are you still bothering me for? I'm a Knight. I'm not interested in your childish games. I need my rest.


Begone! Lest I draw my nail...

Huh, I never even clicked the Twitter link. 


I think #17 is wrong too. Its just due to being waterlogged afaik.


Yeah, I'd never heard that one either and suspect it wrong, but didn't try to research it.

Also, quote for the day:  "Christianity, that left-wing religion that right-wingers seem to love. Islam, that right-wing religion that left-wingers seem to love."
