Re: (EE) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

Monkeys don't have blue pigments, no. You can tell because the blue is so bright! This is, again, structural colour - their skin is actually a dark grey/black. What they do is line up layers of proteins in completely parallel fibres a particular distance apart; this creates interference patterns in...

Re: The Quintessential 5th Conversation Thread

Anyone onboard live in a city with a city income tax? I used to, from 2012-15 (Ohio). And that return had to be filed separately from the two State returns and the Federal. At least now that I live in Europe, it's a lot easier: I just have have to complete a US Federal return, since I'm not above t...

Passport Stamp Relay

I remember doing this once a while ago, and it had some activity, so I figured why not give it another go... So, this is a blank page from an Ilian (concountry) Passport. https://orig00.deviantart.net/5b2d/f/2017/250/2/6/ilia_stamp_page_5_by_requindesang-dbmp6oe.png Blank passport pages, however, wi...

Re: Metal Thread

Ooh, it's been a while since I posted, but I might as well mention the last few concerts I saw that were tangentially metal-related: October of last year: Apocalyptica, playing their debut album plus some other stuff (all instrumental!) This June (around my birthday): Volbeat with Shinedown as the o...

Re: The Scripps National Spelling Bee

When I was in 3rd through 7th grade, my brother qualified every year to the regional level spelling bees where we were. He ended up also qualifying for Nationals in 7th grade, so my mother, my brother, and I all got to go to Washington, D.C., so he could compete in the finals. Fortunately as well, t...

After all these years, I'm finally going to Sweden in May!
Very nice; where to? I found Stockholm quite nice, and surprisingly not that expensive (by Luxembourg standards).

Re: The Quintessential 5th Conversation Thread

I kinda did assume everyone here was studying linguistics. [¬.¬] I'm looking forward to applying to colleges this fall as a linguistics major; I couldnt consider anything else. Wish there were courses in conlanging, though... All of my linguistics has been personal studying, not formal; in college,...

Re: The Quintessential 5th Conversation Thread

Credit cards don't have PINs, though debit cards do. In Luxembourg and France at least, credit cards do use a Chip and PIN system. Whenever I use my credit card (except online), I have to input the associated PIN. Without fail. Though I honestly prefer using cash, especially when travelling. Lets m...
