Reading Bible stories to the 8-year old. The Pharaoh is stubborn, and Yahweh keeps telling Moses and Aaron about various plights he has planned for the Egyptians. Every time it goes like this: "...And I will kill all cattle in Egypt, everywhere except Goshen", "... And it will hail throughout all Egypt except Goshen", "...And the locusts will be in the air and in the ground, everywhere except Goshen". Eli listens closely, and then says: "You know what I would do if I were an Egyptian? I would go to Goshen".

"Papa, what was first - the tree or the sapling?" - "I don't know. The tree?" - "But what did it grow from?" - "Well, then sapling?" - "But where did the sapling come from?" - "Hm. Well, what do you think, what came first?" - "I think the sapling came first." - "But where did the sapling come from?" - "From the Big Bang!"

I learned about the French saying "to lie like a tooth extractor". Today, I'm putting it to the test. The tooth he pulled is in my pocket, and it's huge, just as the hole is. Should I trust his optimism regarding the recovery?
Comment
Your mileage may vary. :) I've got a bloody bubble grown on the place of the removed tooth by the end of the first day. It disappeared eventually. Was really weird touching it with the tongue. I also remember getting a full plastic bottle of vicodin as a prize – more than I've got after my knee surgery. :) ‎· earlyadopter

Успел закончить до Нового Года! Полочка угловая, полностью самодельная, включая: гнутьё дерева, склейку лицевых панелей ящиков из тонких слоев дерева по самодельной форме, склейку столешницы из треугольных кусков махогани и обрезание ее до четврерти круга на циркулярной пиле (угадай как), обклеивание ящиков со всех сторон махоганическим вениром, укрепление конструкции ящиков боковыми сплайнами из блэквуда, изобретение сборно-разборной конструкции, позволяющей финальную сборку на месте без видимых шурупов, покрытие поверхностей лаком так, чтобы блестело как в музее, и миллион чего еще. По дороге изготовил несчетное число джигов и научился несчетному числу техник. Сделал массу ошибок, но следущий проект будет быстрее, проще, и качественнее.

I'd like to let you people know that both Airbnb and VRBO are written by greedy imbeciles that made it their mission to outdo one another in making the customer's life as miserable and busy as they possibly can. If these people were put in charge of a public transportation system we'd be riding very modern looking train cars that are one person wide, three people tall, have one entrance and one exit (on different ends of a multi-car train), with door between cars opening one way only. To talk to one another the passengers would have to send a telegram to the nearest station, and the recipient would then get a text message with the first three characters of the message and an instruction to visit the station to get the remainder of the message. Multiple train systems would run between the same districts of the city, but if you're riding one you have to visit the other ones to let them know you won't be riding that one today, or else you might be charged for the ride there. You would have to print the train ticket, and it would have to be no smaller than the A4 even if the original you have is the size of the credit card. Why? Because fuck you.

TIL about ablaut reduplication. Ding-dong, ping-pong, King Kong.
Comment
Another beautiful concept: Shm-reduplication (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shm-reduplication) which should translate to Russian as "Ху-повтор" (штучки-хуючки, комментарий-хуементарий) ‎· Valera Fooksman

Shopping for wood enriches one's vocabulary as well as one's feel of the language. You might be able to guess that Bocote, Jobillo, or Quina are wood species, but what about Chakte Viga? What about Chechen?
