I want to somehow express that I really liked this post of yours. But after my third attempt to write a sentence that in the context of this topic on EC somehow felt genuine and not like some vaguely hidden butthurt, I've resorted to the eternal German plan B: Explaining myself rather than doing something.

Good post, thanks for making me grin like a normal happy person.

Does the stomach actually absorb anything? I thought it didn't, the absorbing starts in the bowels afair.
Rest of your post: Rationalising destructive behaviour is easier than changing it and you are lazy. If you were a brit, you'd now tell me that "Yes, but it can't be helped, can it?".

I looked up firewood / ivan-čaj, it says its tea was widespread in Russia before proper tea became common, and its main German name is so long that package labeling would look a bit funny: Schmalblättriges-Weidenröschen-Tee. If it's sold here at all, perhaps it gets shortened to Weidenröschentee, Iwantee or one of the plant's alternative vernacular names, like authors choosing fashionable, not-overly-long pen names.
>sea buckthorn tea is really good
I bet it is; I like the fruit's taste as long as its sourness is kept in check. But wouldn't the heat destroy the fruit's high vitamin C content?

I just remembered I have a special Chinese old tea (but can't remember what it's called) from Xishuangbanna, perhaps from the time of what's euphemistically termed Cultural Revolution; if so, perhaps it was made by convict labour? I don't want to drink it so will try to give it away.

Why didn't we have this one yet?
Well, post what you're cooking/eating, discuss food and its culture in general and we may talk about diets as well if you want to.

I'm not a big cook myself but once in a blue moon I like to do it if the process is not too hard or needs too much time. I think the last time I actually cooked something was a south-western inspired casserole, it was extremely fatty because of the massive amount of molten cheese and I felt bad after eating it.
Today I found some older frozen asian vegetables in my freezer and cooked them together with some frozen sugar bean pods and some curry powder, I never thought cooked vegetables without any meat or carbs could taste so well.

Actually, thanks for mentioning tiktok. Never used it, don't plan to, but your mention somehow reduced my (subconcious) feelings of shame for taking cooking advice off of youtube. It's dumb, I know, because if it works then it works no matter where you learned it. But anyway, I now feel more comfortable to share this video about pizza dough, which a friend recommended to me and this has become the de-facto standard way for me to make Pizza for the past 2 years:
https://yewtu.be/watch?v=OjsCEJ8CWlg

For flour I use "Farine spéciale pizza" (literallt "special pizza flour") which I got from someone who regularly goes shopping in france. It's white wheat flour with Semolina mixed in. However that works, this mixture makes for dough that is less likely to rip when you try to stretch it.

maybe this guy has another no knead for round pizza (ingredient amounts will be different at least)

since this is for an al taglio pizza, but it is very good dough and doesn't need kneading, just folding. A good and well proofed dough shouldn't rip easily.

On Thursday night I had sex with my sister. I don't have a sister so it was the sister of a friend I grew up with who would flirt heavily with me in our teens.
On Friday night I had sex with a woman from work that I'd caught up with in a phone call. A mousy by-the-book moron I greatly dislike (and she me) but we have to work together.

I only have these two. Neither are particularly expensive.
I enjoy the gaudiness of the left one. When I wear it with a suit it makes me feel like I'm the type of guy who could own a night club in 80s Miami.
The other just has a nice colour scheme and I wanted something that actually ticks, even if it's still quartz.

One week after your post:
>An X1.9-class solar flare erupts from an active sunspot while facing Earth causing temporary radio blackouts in parts of South America, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The source is "hyperactive sunspot AR3184", which also caused a X1.2-class solar flare on January 5.
My first time seeing a solar flare make it into the news.

Pagan Altar - Mythical & Magical

This album might be one of the greatest Heavy Metal albums ever recorded. Honestly, I don't think I could conjure enough words of praise to heap on this album, so I'll leave it to the fine folks at Metal-Archives to do the job for me:
https://www.metal-archives.com/reviews/Pagan_Altar/Mythical_%26_Magical/139953/

One highlight for me is, ironically, one of the album's less heavier moments "The Crowman". The song perfectly blends Folk and Rock in between all those infectious bluesy licks that transcends time itself and inspires nostalgia for music from eras gone by. And to think this was recorded and released in 2006:

Consisting of words. If you need a definition of a word, open some book on general morphology. (Most) animals don't have those. They may have some signals, which in some cases may have abstract meanings, but those aren't constructed from phonemes. (Animals also don't have syntax, but that's a separate issue.)

There is not a single, universally accepted definition of "word", though. Are sign language signs already words? Do they have phonems? Does that mean sign language is not a language?

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.

Here is a link if anyone wants to suffer alongside me with Russian.

C'mon Ernst, learn a language!

Curiously, I successfully learned to reproduce those mostly just by listening back in the early 2000s (personally, from the Russian perspective I find ح the easiest one - rather convenient to articulate and impossible to mix up with anything else). Arabic generally teaches you the capabilities of your throat well enough anyway.
>For example, all vowels can be placed on a 2D scheme
That doesn't involve rounding, length or various exotic manners of co-articulation (e.g. creaky voice), however, just the basic place of articulation.

Did you learn Arabic back then? So far I've learnt Arabic script, some basic words and constructions. Looking forward to dive into any serious grammar.

One more fascinating thing about linguistics: Indo-European connections. Long time ago I heard dolboslavs saying that all languages in the world came from Russian and backing it up with pairs like "jizn(Rus)-jiva(Hindi)" we wuz Indians or "Ogon(Rus) - Ignite (English)". And now I learnt that they're partially right and it's really not a coincidence. Enchanting!

This is one of the reasons why I'm interested in Arabic. English is pretty different from Russian, but turns out that not really. How much different non-Indo-European language can be?

Arabic is still a relatively typical West Eurasian language. You hardly will find in its grammar anything that would be absent in some IE languages.

P.S.: Obviously, internal inflection of that magnitude is apparently unique to Afroasiatic languages, but PIE ablaut alterations come sufficiently close. Some scholars speculated a genetic connection between IE and Afroasiatic languages, but it's definitely impossible to prove scientifically.

Some of it is less scandalous as it reads for instance some of GDR ministers with NSDAP past were teenagers at the time and more or less automatically became part of the party at the end of the war but I still think that the names provided here are based on actual NSDAP membership which can be traced back to files and are not made up even though Kappelt is a right-wing dickhead. I also think that those that made it through the first waves of denazification and were allowed into the SED weren't called out later on even if the Stasi or whoever was aware of their past in order not to harm the GDR reputation. Obviously no one like Globke made it to the top of the system in the GDR in the first place.

Also there was no Operation Gehlen (BND), which employed many notorious SS members like Franz Rademacher or Walther Rauff.
There was no chancellor Adenauer with his superich friends who all could rescue their wealth into the new BRD.
There were no families like Quandt, who profited from NS crimes and also could retain their wealth, sometimes even allegedly taken from owners, who were on the enemy list of the Nazis.
