Re: West Saxon Grammar Sketch v 0.0.1

I'm definitely subscribing. I saw an older version of this on the ZBB and directly took some inspiration from it for my own Wínlandisch [ˈwæɪ̯nˌlandɪʃ] (Gothic -> “West Saxon” -> “English”), but I'm stuck in between Old and Middle Wínlandisch and didn't pick it back up since 2015 or so… Anyways, I'd...

Re: English Dialects

This screams “south of England”, but I am not a native speaker of English. Actually, I'm intrigued to ask: Where would you put me on the map?

Re: The Quintessential 5th Conversation Thread

I came to know this via Facebook, and I immediately checked Wikipedia.

This man exceeded well beyond any expectation. He was born on the day Galileo Galilei died 300 years before him, and he died 139 years after Albert Einstein's birth. Aren't those strange coincidences?

Re: The Avatar Creation and (Re-)Design Thread

Oh... Yeah the eyes... I probably should give you what I based my original drawing on.
The thing is that the pupils are not contrasting enough with the iris, while the circular reflection is.

Re: The Avatar Creation and (Re-)Design Thread

Is there a way this one could become even better?
I originally wanted a sepia-toned version, but my computer said “nuh”.

Yes, this is what I look like, except that I don't wear pince-nez glasses (but regular ones) and I normally don't wear a tie.

Re: Weird Dream Thread

I dreamt that I played a game very similar to Sim City 3000 – what differed was that I could add extras (central heating for a few Simoleons, for example) to the buildings, which would improve the quality of life for my Sims.
Should I go to EA with this dream-derived idea?

Yup, I changed my avatar (it should resemble my real-life appearance).

All German public transport, including planes: "WHAT? SNOW?! AARGH!"
Me: "Yes, snow, ta-duh. ARE YOU FUCKING SERIOUS? THIS WAS INEVITABLE IN D E C E M B E R, DON'T ACT SURPRISED. "
