what happened in roughly 1870 though
why was there temporary internet
with a few people searching for pokemon?
It’s a search of Google books, but the question still stands, what the Fuck happened in 1870
I CAN ANSWER THIS!!
In the Cornish dialect of English, Pokemon meant ‘clumsy’ (pure coincidence).
In the mid 1800s there was a surge of writing about the Cornish language and dialect in an attempt to preserve them with glossaries and dictionaries being written. I wrote about it HERE.
Omg, thank you. I was really curious about this.
Vintage Clickers! (or rotary!)
Heh — I had to draw an old TV remote for Who Watches the Watcher so I collected some images of those old Zenith ones for reference, but ultimately I chose a slightly newer model.
Take this quick scientific quiz to determine the size of your English vocabulary.
My result was approx. 9750 words.
» And for foreign learners of English, we’ve found that the most common vocabulary size is from 2,500–9,000 words.«
So I’m above average :)
I studied English in University (1992-1998).
After this, only practice (reading, writing, watching movies, talking to people, and again, reading a lot, but mostly nonfiction).
30,300 words… nice… although this thing doesn’t seem accurate tho…. (and its not my native language, but I fall into the range! weeee~)
I got 24,500
i probably know some swears and how to make a coherent sentence
i have no spoons for this, but you know, i know swears and slang and some minor grammar
Foreign learner. Got 11,800 yay xD
Okay so I actually took the test and I got 30,700 words
38,900. Fuck yeah.
seems about right
36,700. I like words.
You can read up to 500 words per minute
THIS MADE ME CRY WHAT THE FUCKThis is amazing for someone with dyslexia like me who reads insanely slow.
this is kinda how i read anyway, i don’t look at whole words
which is one reason my spelling is awful!!!
I saw this going around a while ago and trying to read this way gives me a headache! It just feels so staccato, which makes me think that maybe I read phrases rather than individual words…anyone else?
Birdemic is the perfect flick for your next bad movie binge.
still better cgi than foodfight
THESE ARE ACTUAL GIFS FROM THE MOVIE ITS THAT BAD
The best way to watch Birdemic is with Rifftrax and a fair amount of alcohol in your system. Even better if it’s with a live audience.
