The weekend post
I've noticed that, except me, most of you don't post too much at weekends.
I don't want to know the reason for.

So, this is the thread with a new concept of subject. It doesn't have a defined subject but a defined time lag.
You can post whatever subject you want but only at "leisure time", at the weekend.

Post modernism arrived at DnD. New experimentations for meta - forums.
I hope this thread to be a total failure.
A matter of attitude.

You could do with more but where you live bombs that out.

This/next year the Day of Divergence is on a weekend. So Happy New Zealand!


The Day of Divergence tomorrow is not, but this post is.

@jax, I forgot to mention the missus named a horse after you. He's 6-7mos old now, I'll try to remember to snap a new pic or grab a birth pic off my old phone. In good form with circumstances that's likely to be random. But little horsey just popped out months ahead of expectations. So random that the missus elected to name him after the OP of the Random Horse thread.  :headbang:

There's a music called A Horse with No Name. Made by a group called America.

That sounds fun. I had also forgotten all about that thread, it's a nice one.

And now the divergence has begun. New Zealand is in 2019, the rest of us (barring some Pacific islands) live in an entirely different year.

Portuguese is awesome

Mandarin is not a Chinese word and mandarin ducks now live in Portugal.
[The word "mandarin"] encapsulates an entire colonial history. In the 16th century, Portuguese explorers were the first Europeans to reach China. Traders and missionaries followed, settling into Macau on land leased from China's Ming dynasty rulers. The Portuguese called the Ming officials they met mandarim, which comes from menteri in Malay and, before that, mantrī in Sanskrit, both of which mean "minister" or "counselor." It makes sense that Portuguese would borrow from Malay; they were simultaneously colonizing Malacca on the Malay peninsula.

For centuries, Europeans' impressions of China filtered largely through the Portuguese. [...] From the vantage-point of English speakers, many of the exonyms for non-European places and languages come filtered through the languages of former colonial powers. Bombay and Ceylon, for example, also come from the Portuguese, whose empire once sprawled through Asia.

I hate the periodic chart. This one makes sense.

From the chart: "The chart emphasizes that in real life a chemist will probably meet O, Si, Al,...and that he better do something about it."

Okay. The thing to do about O is probably - breathe.

But what is the empty space under Al? Should we do something about that too?

You breathe much more than just O
But what is the empty space under Al? Should we do something about that too?
That's a mysterious empty space. Learn to live with mystery in your life.  :)

 It does look like it's sucking up all the matter from the bottom ones and adding it to the top of the list.
