Topic 'American English'
Posted 25 Apr 2016 14:45

American English definitely exists. There are lots of spellings like the examples quoted. You also get words with one L where two is normal in British English, eg Traveled, unraveled etc. Then you have gray instead of grey etc. Probably the most notable and interesting American English usage is the past participle 'gotten' which is archaic in British English but normal in American English, whereas begotten is still in occasional use in both countries.

There is a host of vocabulary that is standard in America, which correspond to alternative senses in UK. For example what I call tights are pantyhose in USA, while to an American tights are what I call leggings.

I could talk about this all day.

Topic Personal attacks in heated discussions. Acceptable, or not?
Posted 18 Apr 2016 10:59

Fuck you AND you're ugly...

Ummm....

personally, i think there's a difference between heated discussion and personal attacks, but sometimes, the line does blur and unless it's blatant and ongoing, the mod team usually steers clear of it here. *shrugs* i will admit to occasionally going off the roles, but usually, i stay on course unless something is just over the top provoking.

What would you know about it!!!

I watched this programme the other day - Masterchef, and I swear with the kiss of life the sheep could have been brought back to life! According to the chefs, it was all right!

I don't like lamb that rare, I like it to be firm with just a little hint of pink flesh in the centre.

Topic The rich don't spend proportionally
Posted 11 Apr 2016 12:38

The Subject of the topic is true in some respects. If you are mega rich, then you probably do splash out. I have a friend who is earning £14000 per week and he has a Lamborghini so he can't be accused of not spending proportionately! He also give a lot to charity, raises money and gives stack of food to food banks.

If you're talking about fairly rich people, then you do find people like that are very careful and that's how they keep their money! A generalization but not entirely false.

The upper and middle classes tend to spend within their means, and manage their money sensibly. Poor people don't have that luxury and tend to have no disposable income, so they spend hugely disproportionately, as a result. The lack of proper investment in the infrastructure and privatization and a tendency for wealth not to 'trickle down' in the UK has led to poor people relying on food banks. It's one of the great shames of modern Britain.

Looking at the bigger picture, the government printed money after the banking crisis, which was given to banks with the intention that it would boost the economy, with banks lending more etc. What actually happened was that the banks just held on to the money and the fat cats and share holders got richer.

Now there's gonna be thousands of people redundant with the steel industry causing the collapse of entire towns and the banks get richer. How fucked up is that!!!

Just because we are in the same taxonomic family as apes, i.e. hominidae it doesn't make us apes, although we are very closely related.

Wikipaedia is not a good place to get information like this. You're better of with Google scholar or talking to someone with the right credentials.

Humans are of the tribe hominini, gorillas and chimps belong to the tribe gorillini. Some taxonomists have proposed that chimps are also members of the hominini but that is controversial. To deal with this, some have proposed the existence of the sub-tribes hominina and panina, which is probably nearer the mark.

However, what makes us human is our language and our full bipedalism and relatively hairless bodies and greater intelligence, ergo we are not apes.

I think the term porn means different things to different people. I would say it's an erotic stories site, though some of the content is porn. But that's not the main purpose of the site.

We aren't saying the same thing....Neanderthals evolved outside of Africa.

As Bi Male says, they moved to Europe then evolved to Neanderthals (outside of Africa), whilst those that stayed in Africa evolved into...well, us

Okay, my mistake. I think it's an over simplification, but I can't disagree with you.

I think you'll find that a common ancestor of both homo sapiens and Neanderthals (hence we are 'cousins') moved to Europe and then evolved into Neanderthals, and then what remained in Africa evolved differently into Homo Sapiens

We know this because no African has Neanderthal DNA, but all those in Europe do. They got this by moving to Europe, and mating with the Neanderthals that were there.

I might be wrong, but I'm pretty sure I'm not...

So basically yes, Neanderthals also started out in Africa, but only actually being Neanderthals long after moving to Europe

I guess what we're saying: the evolution of the Neanderthals is different from the contemporaneous populations of Neanderthals and Homo Sapiens. I think what you mean is that Neanderthals had already settled in Europe and Asia by the time we were still evolving in Africa. That's a different thing to saying that Neanderthals evolved outside of Africa. What we call Neanderthals are a snapshot of fossils that were at the end of their evolution, who just happened to mainly live in Eurasia.

Edit: After re-reading your last reply, I think we're saying the same thing - lol Hugs

They had to have done so.....

Neanderthals were European, and weren't in Africa. They could only have mixed with Home Sapiens when 'we' migrated to Europe and had sexy times with them

Neanderthals evolved in Africa. However, they migrated to Europe a long time before modern humans.

Lisa and Liz for prose. Principessa and DanielleX are tops too. How can one ignore Milik?

A tie between LauraLeeSugar and LaylaJune for poetry.

For overall writing in historical fiction both mythical and Herodotusan, BethanyFrasier and Melissa999.


I'm on a roll! Thank you! Big Hugs

I would concur about Liz, who is an erotic genius. I also would like to mention KatieElizabeth who never fails to turn me on with her well-crafted, sexy stories. Among the men, Buz is tops in my book.

Topic For or against the UK staying within the EU?
Posted 10 Mar 2016 10:45

I think we should stay in, but I understand why a lot of people want to leave. It really depends who you are.

I think there's a lot of investment from Europe, which helps a lot of businesses. However, if you're a poor person then you're probably going to be worried about immigration and I understand that it's poor people who are disproportionately affected by the effects of immigration, though this is quite patchy. Personally I don't see the problem with immigration, although my father is one, so I'm biased.

The thing is, Britain is not 'culturally' European. They don't fit in.

I don't understand the economic arguments tbh, but who does? All we hear on the radio is a load of bull shit. No one is discussing the real issues, but trying to scare people by propounding various nightmare scenarios. But then it's same at general elections, the level of political debate is very superficial and sound-bitey.

I think the vote will be about 55% to leave.
