I know how you feel.

So I've noticed this thread's regulars all follow similar trends.

 

RPG is constantly dealing with psycho exes.

Muggi reminds us of the joys of polygamy.

Saq is totally oblivious to how much chicks dig him.

I strike out every other week.

Kalphite wages a war against the friend zone.

Randox pretty much stays rational.

Etc, etc

I can only post once a minute after one of my many bans here. Probably the most helpful thing in preventing double posts

Only mods have that turned off. Everyone has to wait 45 seconds before posting twice.

 

You can get around it with a slow internet connection sometimes, which is how Goon or Dax or Emily or someone posted like 18 pages at once one time, but in general yeah, everyone has to wait.

My skin is finally getting soft
I'll scrub until the damn thing comes off

It seems ridiculous to have to wait a month+ for results. I don't know much about Uni but I would think there is less than a month between semesters. So what happens if one of the courses is a prerequisite and you need to know exam marks in order to know you passed the class?

Summer resits.

At my uni back home a lot of our exams are at the end of the entire year meaning if you learnt something from September till December you would have your exam for it in May or June.

For my course, I've pretty much been made to take a certain number of courses and I've never had any choice in which ones I do until now.

I'm only allowed to choose this year because I'm on my year abroad and when I go back home for my final year I'll pick some more courses to fill up the credits but there isn't a prerequisite system as such back home (bar some courses where you do need to do specific complementary second year modules to be able to do the third year ones for example). You just have to pass a number of courses to make up a certain number of credits.

Accounting final done, so glad I never have to think about accounting again

Except every time you think about wanting to do your own taxes or plan on making a budget for personal use...

Accounting was actually what I debated getting my 2nd degree in. Dual with HR. But somehow I don't think it'll help or be worth it

So, having a little fun on Wikipedia, and I started looking at the T-V distinction that english used to have (your definition of fun may vary). Basically, ye and [/you] were the formal words for the nominative and objective case, respectively, and thee and [/though] would be informal. Thee and thou eventually became pejoratives and fell out of use, and then we stopped using ye at all and just started you. So aside from making plurals horrendously unclear because english is quite literally missing a word (hence colloquialisms: youse, y'all, you all, etc.), that's all fine.

 

First observation. 'You' is normally used in the singular, so the word we are (sort of) missing is the plural second person pronoun...which used to be 'you'. That is, 'you' and 'ye' were once upon a time the plural forms of 'thou' and 'thee', which then came to also have that T-V distinction of formal and familial you find in many languages. So, some nice irony there.

 

Also, for people who aren't grammar buffs, I'll clarify nominative and objective with the words he and [/i]him[/i]. He is the nominative case, while him is the objective.

 

So take the sentence: James will talk to Mark.

 

You could in conversation with a third party say 'he will talk to Mark', or 'James will talk to him', rather than saying 'James will talk to Mark'. The transition of using 'you' for both 'you' and 'ye' would be the equivalent of dropping the word 'he' entirely, and only using the word 'him'. So now you could say "him will talk to Mark" or "James will talk to him" and both would become grammatically correct.

 

I couldn't do it as a career, but I do think there is some fun and interest to be had in the history of a language. This also sort of screwballs our grammar, since one word is being used in place of what should be four words, though in fairness I think the plural/singular distinction probably went out the window when we started using them as formal and informal. I don't speak another language like French, so I don't really know how they handle that sort of double duty meaning.

Found out a girl i used to "see" about a year ago entered into an arranged marriage. It was kind of a shock when i found out. I saw a picture on Facebook about 2 or 3 days ago, with a lot of people congratulating her. All of them also seemed quite surprised. We weren't exactly great friends so i would have expected her to tell me she was getting engaged or anything, but i am sure i would have seen something about it on Facebook. So when i saw she got married i found it kinda odd, and then last night i found out it was arranged. I feel really bad for her cause she's only met him 5 times in her life. She says she has very little in common with him. She's very westernized and he's very traditional. She's extremely hot and he's extremely average. Really never expected her family to be this "traditional".

Spanish conjugation makes more sense (as do most languages) having i/you/yous/we/us/them,him (and her). We conjugate our sentence and our tenses in our verbs (I think) so we have things like go verse went when in Spanish it would always be a variation of vamos (which is actually already conjugated because I can't remember the standard form)

The infinitive "to be" (ir) is highly irregular in both languages - interesting how that carried over :P.
