First with a ref to John Ford because I did not like very much this picture I saw right now. Problem is that is too feminine in the bad sense, the film. It's very nice if you like paintings, but you know, cinema is something else.

The rest of pictures are in my collection of cinema-tv pics but I don't have the slightest idea of which film do they come from.

"Ford was highly intelligent, erudite, sensitive and sentimental, but to protect himself in the cutthroat atmosphere of Hollywood he cultivated the image of a "tough, two-fisted, hard-drinking Irish sonofabitch".[71] One famous event, witnessed by Ford's friend actor Frank Baker, strikingly illustrates the tension between the public persona and the private man. During the Depression, Ford—by then a very wealthy man—was accosted outside his office by a former Universal actor who was destitute and needed $200 for an operation for his wife. As the man related his misfortunes, Ford appeared to become enraged and then, to the horror of onlookers, he launched himself at the man, knocked him to the floor and shouted "How dare you come here like this? Who do think you are to talk to me this way?" before storming out of the room. However, as the shaken old man left the building, Frank Baker saw Ford's business manager Fred Totman meet him at the door, where he handed the man a cheque for $1,000 and instructed Ford's chauffeur to drive him home. There, an ambulance was waiting to take the man's wife to the hospital where a specialist, flown in from San Francisco at Ford's expense, performed the operation. Sometime later, Ford purchased a house for the couple and pensioned them for life. When Baker related the story to Francis Ford, he declared it the key to his brother's personality: "

It's okay, but it's a bit weird seeing Ivan being an office worker, not a dyachok. A lot of humor in the Ivaaaaan comics was derived from Ivan working in a church, that is, being a part of one of the most archaic establishments in Russia and letting his overactive, pop-culture saturated imagination make him see whatever he does from a modern perspective.

>How do I become better at listening?
Short answer: practice.
Really, conversation is a skill that needs to be learned like any other. If, while you're improving, you need to choose between listening and thinking, then always listen first. There isn't always a need to respond immediately during conversation. The content of your words should matter more than the speed by which they were delivered. If a brief pause will allow you to better consider what has been said, then by all means pause. If you need more time, and the silence may be uncomfortably long, simply acknowledge that you're absorbing the new information. If nothing else, that will demonstrate that you care enough about the speaker to consider their words before replying. Caring about the other party, about their thoughts and perspective, is the real key to being a good listener.

I look away and blank my visual field usually. Any visual stimulus is distracting. That includes looking in the eye, watching their mouth, watching hands etc. People routinely do stupid shit like they'll be looking at one object and asking for something in a totally different place so I because I was tracking eye movement grab the wrong thing. Lot of people are put off by not making eye contact etc so just take quick moments to look them in the eye before going back to processing whatever they're saying.

I basically don't process audio information well. There's about a 1-2 second delay in translating spoken words to thoughts and visual data I can process. I've never discoverred why this is but I've got a splitting headache right jow.

Bill Nighy has probably sired half of the new Nighy's in this country. I'd have liked to see the counts associated with these names as well, it seems odd that a surname like 'Chips' could decline by 97% - even if it's a silly name, people tend to hang onto surnames.

There is a thread asking about German grammar, but why not make a languages general?

Why aren't you learning a language in your free time? Go for it, it's a good use of time. In a couple of years, you'll have an interesting skill.

I'm currently learning Russian, it's a horrible language crafted by Satan himself. Cyrillic is bad, but cursive cyrillic is just sadistic, it is no wonder that so many people resisted attempts at Russification.

I've found a surprising amount of decent materials for learning Persian. Much more than I expected. If I cared to devote the time to it, I don't think I would have a problem reaching fluency of understanding, even without finding a conversation partners.

On top of the torrent, there are a few decent and expansive online dictionaries (this is the best IMO https://dsal.uchicago.edu/dictionaries/hayyim/), a site that takes a Persian short story and presents it with vowels and mouse-over translation (https://www.lib.washington.edu/static/public/neareast/yekruz/ - ignore the broken formatting and the warning about not using internet explorer, it works fine when you go to an individual section), and a website that lets you stream a ton of Iranian TV shows in their entirety for free (forgot the name and can't find the link ATM, but I can get it if you're interested).

Ah, now I'm getting your point.
Not sure if I have a satisfactory answer, but apparently "ein paar" is classified as an indefinite numeral, and as such it is not inflected.
Other examples of that group are "ein bisschen", "ein wenig", genug, viel, wenig.

Notice that viel ("much") can be used non-inflected for non-countable things, but viele ("many") is inflected for countable things. Same goes for wenig vs. wenige.
With a definite article, wenig and viel become inflected even with non-countable things: wenig Regen, der wenige Regen. As mentioned, "wenig" is an indefinite numeral, but in "der wenige Regen" it becomes an adjective. Different grammatical role, different grammatical rules.

First I contacted call center, they said like they can't return the money because "the service was provided correctly", so I said I'm writing an official complaint.

Trash talk the company loudly and start petitions to get people to switch service. There are many ways to be spiteful in this life.

Yeah, but all the ones I like are much too expensive, also I can't stand having a wristband anymore, so the only actual watch I own is a pocketwatch I got from my mom for christmas some years ago, but I never wear it because my pockets are already full and I rarely wear suits (and never vests).

It's a great and robust watch. The movement isn't the best in the world but it's good enough for the price range the watch is in.

I think i paid around 250€ but there's also a cheaper quartz version of the series.

I still like it a lot and would buy it again.

I'm considering getting a watch for the first time since almost 10 years currently, more for drip related reasons than the actual looking at the time function obviously.

So since I found out about the based strikes at the French LIP factory in the 1970ies (for the interested: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LIP_(company)#1973:_beginning_of_the_strike_and_demonstrations ) a while back I decided to look at what they offer today (which has got nothing to do with the strikes and worker self managment obviously, but anyway).

So what do you guys think about these two models?

The first one even got some history:
>Fred Lip returns to Europe convinced of the future of electric watches. The prototype of the world's first electric wristwatch was presented in 1952 at the Paris Academy of Sciences. This innovation represents "a masterpiece of timing and quality". The watch equipped with the revolutionary R27 movement was launched in 1958. Fred Lip is proud to offer this watch to General de Gaulle and then to General Eisenhower.
Personally I'd like a mixture of both - the GDG being a bit too minimalistic and the Marinier being a bit too packed when it comes to thickness of the clock-face, but well: can't have everything, I suppose.

Because I do not know who Linkola is, is it better not to paint and admit you know nothing but wish to know more, or is it better for the one eyed man to boldly go painting his tile half blindedly? Does the bold man be behooved into blind action, if only for the sake of decisiveness, or is it better that man watches others paint tiles? Can his tile be painted better had he seen no one else do it at all, for sake of false doctrines? Or shall a man paint half his tile, only to paint wrongly and travel so far back to paint his other half, and to paint the measure again? Shall we even have our measure of wheat for a penny, or shall all the sows be barren and every cow thin? How many thin cows does the man give us who paints his tile halfly, blindly, or not at all? Of what consequence is a tile painted raw and half a measure of barley?

And you fucking people wonder why we want nothing to do with you and I wish the worst fates on all of you. These two posts themselves speak volumes about the kind of filth I don't even see as human anymore inhabiting those boards and why I want you all to be violently purged. The fact you don't even see anything wrong with it anymore or still are willing to frequent such a place speaks volumes about what sort of things you have become and in some cases probably always had been. I have no idea why you'd think anyone here or elsewhere would want to have anything to do with you. The fact many of you are also casually on the edge of being legit terrorists also says a lot.
