"Conservatives currently control every branch of the federal government, and yet they have never sounded so beleaguered in my lifetime. Elite cues still matter in American politics, and it is hard not to notice that the head of the Republican Party reacts like a toddler to any kind of setback. It seems hard not to conclude that conservative standard-bearers have become the real snowflakes in American politics." - Daniel W. Drezner

Thank you, I put a lot of time and energy into that.

I've been told by various women that merely looking them in the eye I have impregnated them

Ancient history of an old, now-banned "power user", but made me laugh. I miss him, I only lurk in archives but he seems he was funny,

I wonder what happened to him. I believe he died a few years ago.

Uh... on Shiny's profile his last post is adorned with a red ban message from Fr. George himself, apparently for trolling.

If he got banned then died that is horrible, Lord have mercy. :(

Well, ultimately it's Latin: factitius
Rather facticius, factitius does exist as a synonym, but I think it'd have rendered *feitizo in Portuguese, observing its sound laws. It was factitius -> feitiço -> fétiche -> fetish. The English word "factitious" is a doublet.

I heart you.
Éǵh₂ lewbʰoh₂ te h₂ewg.
Ik lubō þik auk.
Ic lufō þē ēac.
I love thee eke.
I love you too.

This reply in this thread is quotable itself. We should rename Indo-European language family/people to "Japhetic" again, as was common for a time in the 19th century.

People usually love Old English (as in Anglo-Saxon spoken before Norman rule), although I adore Middle English just as much if not more. There was a time in merry old England where each little village had its own manner of speech. Only God knows how many local terms and phrases have totally died out since the age of mass communication. Heartbreaking. :(

I have a Norman great-grandmother who got her local dialect literally beaten out of her in school to speak "good French" instead of "bumpkin/hick patois". She knew a few mysterious words for things I can't find any sort of etymology fpr. For example in her tiny native town they called a certain kind of bad spirit a "mélegon" (pronounced like mayl-uh-gohn). The only possible hypothesis I have for the origin of this term MAYBE is Moloch, the Canaanite demon from the OT? But that's about it... it is incredibly fascinating though I hope we can preserve what is left.

This classical Cornish grammar that revived the language says it is an "Aryan language" like Latin, Sanskrit, "Teutonic" and other "languages of the higher or white races".
"May the Lord our God remember in His kingdom all Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, which heralds the Word of Truth and fearlessly offers and distributes the Holy Oblation despite human deficiencies and persecutions moved by the powers of this world, in all time and unto the ages of ages."

This post gave me autism.

Since when has a Hierarch done anything for you? . . .

Apparently you can get the Juice or Power from a certain Icon.

I grew a Victorian handlebar moustache reading that.

Might as well learn the Norse and Slavic version of European English.
