  1. Western mentality!

  2. I haven't seen any of my relatives in my entire life(I'm an orphan). I don't even have a single photo of any of my relatives. Is there a way I can find them? Help!!!!!!!

    If you have any information on my relatives, anything, please let me know. I will be glad to read any information.

  3. "You can't raise the awareness of people who have no brains, no matter how hard you try. Because you have to have a brain to be aware of something. And in the end they will blame everything on you. I wouldn't like to work with people like that, especially if my work is not paid." Alexander Howard

  4. Is there a way to put the bastards who steal your ideas in jail?

      If you have some sort of formal evidence that you developed the idea first, then a court is probably the way to go.

  5. One of the reasons I'm using English is that possibly it's going to reduce the number of misunderstandings that occur in communication, due to its Germanic qualities. Although it is more ambiguous than Slavic languages, more ambiguity of the language leads to more awareness of the ambiguity of its speakers. Because naturally, the speakers of an ambiguous language should be more aware of ambiguity than the speakers of a less ambiguous language.

  6. Is English the best language out there?

      I have watched hundreds of various videos about languages like learning tips, language overviews etc., but not a single one with the analysis of languages. Not a single one in my life!!! It is because it requires serious analytical skills, brilliance, genius, expert linguistic knowledge, so it's probably less than 1% of people on Earth who could pull of a video like that. And these people, if they exist at all, probably have better things to do than making youtube videos. And I am interested exactly in this, not in cars or how to learn languages. I feel like if I want it I'll have to do it myself, but it's probably not going to be interesting for many people. It's for the circle of the chosen.

      @VegetableStuIt seems like a book about internet slang, not about the analysis of the various language features and the evaluation of them. I want the analysis like "Flexible vs fixed word order", for example. Or "Do you need dual number?", "Why do we need grammatical genders, what are the advantages and disadvantages of genderless languages?", "How many words does a language really need, how many is enough, how many is not, how many is excessive and what types of words?", "Do you need tenses in a language?", "How many cases are enough?", "What features are absolutely essential, what are useful to have and what are useless ones?", a deeper understanding the connection between language and culture, about the expression and inability to express, etc. Not a book teaching about the internet slang. I want a reasonable, practical book about languages, but I have never read such one in my entire life. It seems like nobody even in the West, let alone third world, is interested in this, except me and I feel like I'm a chosen one, I feel unique. I suppose J.R. Tolkien was interested in this too and he was German, but geniuses like him are truly unique. If Tolkien is not unique for you, then I don't know who would you consider unique. J. R. R. Tolkien was aware of the Tolkien family's German origin. Tolkien knew around 35 different languages.

  7. If we are going to lose the ability to answer simple questions then our society will go down. The tendency to avoid questions in the modern society has grave concerns. I am really glad that Linus is not like that. This is what makes him to stand out from the grey crowd. He is a good role model. He is doing amazing job unlike Apple. What do I have to discuss with those poor strawheads who can't answer simple questions? I don't want to deal with individuals like that. If you can't answer simple questions like "Why?" then never ever write anything to me. I don't want to see you in my life. And don't forget to check if your ability to answer simple questions is intact before you write anything to me. But you probably forget it anyway. I have no time for trolls and idiots who are unable to answer simple questions. I can easily recognize trolls and idiots by this inability and I am not going to communicate with you if you're not going to answer my questions like "Why?".

      You are not a philosopher. Why do you act like one?

      Alexander_Howard

      Because I don't want to answer your questions.

      @DrMacintosh I like how you can assume that of someone, knowing nothing about them ;)

  8. Hello! How can I be more delusional?

  9. Hello! Anybody? Have you ever walked through a room, but it was more like the room passed around you like there was a leash around your neck that pulled you through?

      ah, offspring. I knew that sounded familiar.

  10. Howdy! Have you ever been at some place recognizing everybody's face until you realized that there were no one that you knew? Why does this happen?

  11. I'm in russia now. Russia is cold, foreign and disgusting. And there is nothing to do here. I cannot get out. Please help.

  12. How do you debunk the illusion of understanding in North America?

  13. The greatest enemy of understanding is not misunderstanding, but the illusion of understanding.
