I dated a Cantonese speaker for like, two years. Why does Cantonese still sound so incomprehensible as opposed to Mandarin to me?
Disclaimer: I cannot speak any Chinese in any dialect at all whatsoever, and the tiny amount of Chinese I can incidentally understand is just due to me reading characters whose meanings I had absorbed in Japanese as kanji.
If you think explaining to Americans why they shouldn’t link to Daily Mail articles is bad, try explaining to your former English/Psychology teacher why she shouldn’t be sharing images from Britain First on her facebook page.

If protocol forbids the US president from meeting “officially” with leaders of opposition parties though, then how did they get such swanky digs for that earlier photo op? (Unless I’ve been misunderstanding something about the newspapers’ explanations for this brush-by business.)
GOING DEEP discussion topic: “WHAT IS A HOLE?”
Please review this seminar/argument about the ontology of holes before watching tonight’s episode of GOING DEEP WITH DAVID REES, entitled “HOW TO DIG A HOLE” (immediately followed by “HOW TO FLIP A COIN”).
Yes, our show has homework assignments! Summer school is in session.
(The show is on NatGeo at 10PM EST.)
All of you who live in the US and get that tv channel need to watch this show tonight.
- mosh pits at Neutral Milk Hotel shows are a thing
- someone brought a knife to one
- the father of someone I know punched the dude with the knife and took it from him
This could just be because it was at the fucking Pitchfork festival, and Pitchfork is garbage, but who can tell.
I love how all American coverage of either Miliband brother basically consists of people saying they have no idea who they are.
