Re: Missing Words, Words You Think We Should Have

I'm sure we have no individual word or short phrase in English that means the same thing, but that doesn't mean we can't understand the concept. In which case why not just borrow the Japanese? We've done that with quite a few other expressions in quite a few other languages. Schadenfrued or whateve...

And that's different than the sox short.au long.au longer.au concatenates two...

Re: "CNR" Discussion

I dislike the casual attitude towards reproductive sex. Not really funny. What's wrong with that? Are you some kind of prude or something? What is wrong with a man and woman expressing their love for one another? Do you understand how mating works? Do you understand where babies come from? If it we...
