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.

I wonder why umlaut's are only used in surnames.

I wonder why umlaut's are only used in surnames.

 

Umlauts signify a specific vowel pronunciation as I recall, so are in all parts of names and words.  Eg, das mädchen = the girl (which can also be used as a forename, eg Mädchen Amick) for German.  That said Jääskeläinen is a Finnish name I think, so its not an umlaut if I understand it correctly, but a Scandinavian character used in the Finnish alphabet (if we still have some Finnish speaking posters they may be able to elaborate further).

 

Diacritical marks (like the umlaut or acute accent) are typically used to represent something that differs from the non marked usage.  The acute accent in Spanish from my memory is used to indicate an irregular vowel stress or a distinction between words otherwise spelled the same.  So González having an acute mark in her name in the text & picture should indicate pronunciation as gon-ZAH-les as opposed to Gonzalez which would be pronounced gon-zah-LES as I recall (however as we all know names aren't always pronounced how they're spelt, so...).  A Spanish first name with an acute accent is Adrián, used to indicate the ia doesn't diphthong IIRC.

As a Swede, I can say that is correct. I can also say that my coworkers name is Jääskeläinen, so I know it is a real surname.

Also a common Swedish name is Gösta.


Civilization, in fact, grows more and more maudlin and hysterical; especially under democracy it tends to degenerate into a mere combat of crazes; the whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary. - H.L. Mencken

The bride thought it would be funny to send out the best man in a wedding dress to surprise the groom for the wedding photos...

You see Malc... that is why the US is the greatest country on Earth. That girl just got here and already she's back to a healthy weight, found a job as an internet porn star, and has already become a meme! USA, USA, USA 

 

:lol:

 

In all seriousness you didn't need to go to snopes. It's an internet meme.... nobody with a brain took it seriously to begin with!

Well, some of my Marine buddies who have gone full Trump believed it enough to get riled up over it. But you already know we aren't known as the brightest bunch.
