When communicating in English do you sometimes make mistakes because you often see native speakers make them? Which ones get you?

Grammar and spelling mistakes are really common in with native Englishers online, I imagine that must really mess with people trying to learn. Please discuss this topic.

Except Y generally.

A young bird. A Sea Urchin. An Urchin. Generally speaking it's a cadence thing. A urchin is awkward to pronounce, whereas an urchin allows an-urchin to sort of roll together whereas a-urchin requires a stop. English, particularly American English, is a very clippy language. We like saying things in the shortest possible amount of time, with the exception of our overreliance on articles to begin with (I can see how Slavic and other languages drop the/a/an so much because it's really not always necessary). A yogurt. A hundred yogurts although some people or maybe it was archaic English didn't pronounce the H making it an hundred yogurts.

A good rule of thumb maybe is if you can pronounce it like it's part of the same word without breaking your cadence, use an. If the next sound is consonant not a vowel use a. A-cow, a-youth, an-ox. Notice how all these could basically just be pronouned single words. A-ox, an-youth, an-cow, not so much.

It all depends on what you are trying to achieve.

If "you got nothing to hide" it doesn't matter what you use, just use the thing you like, you are getting fucked anyway. They can probably drive a freight train into your ass by now, sideways.

> VPN
Only to protect against Hollywood based attacks. Any government backed agency can still get you. They fucking closed down the internet just to catch a guy in Norway who was using Tor so if you are going to annoy them you need some serious OPSEC. First of being, do not post here. Every *chan is seriously monitored since retards started posting manifestos and killing people.

That said, Firefox. Only because of plugins that can clean up your internet experience™. Torbrowser is also good if you need to hide that filthy porn habit of yours from various trackers.

Google Willy Brandt, the wiki should give info about his foreign policy including the Ostverträge, agreements between Germany and SU countries including the DDR and giving up the territories of 1937 Germany, today it is Poland etc. historians noted that Hitler sold these territories by going to war and loosing it, nobody needs these territories anyway

In alm honesty I've seen two capeshit things that were good, and those are The Dark Knight and a couple XMEN movies. Days of Future Past was really good, and the one set in the Cold War wasnt bad either. I do remember seeing one that was terrible though. Or maybe it was a few and they blur together into one capeshit mass.

Speaking of comic book stuff, has anyone seen Preacher? Is the show any good?

Just watched this adaptation of a Kafka short story. It was okay, really nothing special. The main point was the animation itself, which was Experimental, but I just probably don't get it. (Or it's just simply not my cup of tea. It's gritty and intentionally crude, it reminds me of some Pilotredsun animations, weirdly enough.)
Besides the wacky, surreal animation, it follows the source material word-for-word.
Honestly, if it wasn't Kafka, I wouldn't really care for it.

Since I like experimental animation, I searched for this on Youtube. It's definitely surreal. I think the director was trying to create a dream-like feeling, where there the viewer had no solid and reliable visual footing. Maybe that was to convey the doctor's lack of control; they were the new priests and people expected them to magically fix things. At least that's how I interpretted it.

I hear ya, I've bought quite a few books on tracking, hunting, skinning and survival - along with a bow and a bunch of tools that can be used without electricity. I am already teaching my kids the basics of bows, tools and how things work because my own parents basically taught me nothing - in fact they were barely literate and completely uneducated yet walked into careers in the 70s and 80s and had their mortgage paid off within 10 years. by the way you should try explaining to a 5 year old how an airbag works sometime, that's a fucking minefield of endless questions right there. Same with things like clouds

boomers have no concept of value, they were basically handed security in a high trust society, they had family, they had inheritance and they probably had a lot more siblings than our generation, and they lived under far more lenient laws and less draconian shit so they did have so many safety nets compared to us. What do they do with all this security? they squander it on absolute bullshit and frivolity when they're in their 60s and 70s.

pfffffff the rich and powerful command the cia/deep state and governments in every country, otherwise the rich and powerful would be just rich, but not powerful.
on another chan anon posted a doc which was allegedly a list with people linked to epstein. addresses were blacked as well as a couple names. couldn't find trump and clinton on there, but spotted other prominent names such as murdoch, prince andrew, rothschild, bismarck, habsburg to name but a few.
so if epstein really was a pedo provider for these upper upper class super rich oligarch types i think serious investigators will suffer the same fate as witnesses and investigators in the dutroux case.

>What if the rich and powerful are trying to receive assets in order to blackmail other rich and powerfuls?
fair enough. but why do you bring blackmail in? if the guy was indeed pedo provider for over 9000 oligarchs all of his "customers" shared the same interest regarding him after he got arrested: he shall under no circumstances chat about his "job" and relations to them in court. all of his customers have a very strong motive regarding his "suicide".
now the fact that he got arrested in the first place may point to epstein being a tool and/or casuality within a greater intrigue between different oligarchs or oligarch factions. the cia/deep state might be a tool of one of those factions. or there are different factions within the cia who work for different customers. anyway, since a lot of very powerful people shared the interest of him being silent forever a combined effort to make sure of this seems more likely to me than a bunch of secret service personell using someone like epstein as "asset" for blackmailing even more powerful people than him or making politics - only to eventually expose their "asset" to the public.

Since a long time I strongly assume, that modern trends in architecture, like e.g. lazy facing concrete buildings simply exist, because architects and craftsmen are not able to build things that have been built centuries ago with more simple means of construction.

I believe that notre dame shows this. The most obvious idea would be to just rebuild this quite perfect building. But we can't. We are not able and therefore start to fancy some bullshit.
