Re: Question about languages in an 'unstable' conworld

Well, language is spread by civilizations, so the instability would suggest that world-languages would be unlikely. On the other hand the instability would encourage frequent migrations, so I'd guess this implies that sprachebundes would be less common, and most languages would have a relatively het...

I think you probably clicked the "hide my status" button when logging in. In unrelated news, I stared reading Check, Please yesterday, which may or may not have anything to do with Sectori's avatar.

Can we talk about the US getting rid of net neutrality now? Yes but those people who care are the same dolts who write "neither pay cares about you". So is that taken to mean you don't really care about net neutrality? I'm intending to say something like "the people who harp on this are (usually) t...

Re: The Quintessential 5th Conversation Thread

Well I mean I'm glad that Mugabe's on the way out but I'm not holding out my hopes that it'll lead to full democracy, at least immediately.
