Re: 1602: Linguistics Club

I understand that language constantly changes, but it saddens me when words are redefined to become potentially useless Indeed! I don't use any of these words under discussion, sticking to phrases such as "twice a month" and "every other year," for exactly this reason. The one I...

Re: 1601: "Isolation"

Showing that people's disconnection from their surroundings and the people in their vicinity has been steadily increasing for two hundred years doesn't actually indicate anything about whether it's okay or harmful. A condition that develops over a long time can be just as bad as one that happens all...

They're going to need a better slogan than that for their Kixtarter campaign. So that's where that came from. I only know about it due to Cards Against Humanity, where "Kid tested, mother approved" ended up paired with "a coathanger". That one came up the last time I played Cards...
