Everytime the kid sees his mother leave he runs to the door and cries loudly for three hours (or until she gets back). It’s a different cry because you can hear him yelling just to be heard, like he’s calling his mother from afar. He doesn’t stop crying until she gets back. Non stop.- Loud fucking crying. I am blowing my head with a gun this has been my past 4 weeks. If I ever had any doubs about having kids, well, they’re gone, fuck kids.

Most of what comes out of a kid has at one point been put into it by a parent.

So if a kid is crying more than average, please don’t blame the kid.

when people ask ridiculously vague language related questions with no context.




‘how long does it take to learn a language?’


‘what language is the best for job prospects?’


‘which language is the easiest to learn?’


“which is more useful, chinese or arabic?”


And the last but not the least:

But why have you chosen Swedish (or name any other not so popular language) to learn?

Or “What are you ever going to do with [insert any language]?”
I guess communicating with people whose languages I speak is an option…

Punch them.

Punch them in the face.

So I was writing the Chinese word 加油 (it’s an exclamation of encouragement) in my notebook and the only really fitting thing I could think of to write as its meaning was the Japanese word ‘ganbatte’. 

I should probably pick up Japanese again one day

(Also fun fact: 加油 literally means “add gasoline” as in “refuel” but to me it sounds a little as if you’re threatening to set people on fire)

(Oh it can also mean “lubricate” apparently)

(This just keeps getting better and better)

Anonymous said: Why are so many Tumblr linguists raging leftists?



Why do you overgeneralize anonymously without anything even remotely resembling facts?

equalssquarebracket hat gesagt:
 I like to think its true (not the anon).

I can’t speak for (the) others, but for me it’s “raging” because I cannot stay calm when I read/watch the news. 

I cannot fathom why so many people think it’s an insult to call someone “a person who cares about society and wants to improve it”, because that’s basically it.

it bothers me that Kansas and Arkansas are not pronounced the same

I’m from the UK and I have been pronouncing Arkansas as Ar-Kansas my whole life

For all my non-american friends, Arkansas is pronounced ark-an-saw

I found this out watching “The Stand”. I was absolutely delighted.
