I remember way back in...5th grade maybe? It was 09-09-96 and someone made a big deal about it being 09-09-99 soon. I actually put 99 as the year by accident.

Enjoy these numerical coincidences. After 12-12-12 there won't be another until 2101.

Flammable beverages, you say? So that must have been why that beverage truck on the highway had burst into flames on my way here.

Posted on 09-01-09 09:55:54 PM, in A bit of a problem here.. (last edited by Terra at 09-01-09 09:58 PM) Link
I've taken German classes and learned some German, but I can't follow enough of the language to hold a conversation or read a non-trivial book in German.

Writing it is worse. German has 3 genders, indicated by die/der/das as the article. So you have something like "der Tisch" (the table) and you have to know that it uses the "der" article. It's rather arbitrary. Das Kind (the child), der Apfel (the apple), die Straße (the street). The really hard part is that sometimes the article changes. Like, if something's the direct object, der changes to den, so it's "Der Tisch ist hier" (the table is here) but "Ich sehe den Tisch" (I see the table). After prepositions, you get other ones, like der/das becoming dem sometimes and even die becoming der or den, so it's hard to know the gender of a word without grammatically picking apart the sentence in ways I'm not used to doing. Also, they represent some instances of English "to" and "of" and distinguish in/into and on/onto by varying the article. Argh.

Then, there are plurals. German plurals seem to be pretty much random:
Apfel - Äpfel: add Umlaut
Hand - Hände: add Umlaut and add ending -e
Buch - Bücher: add Umlaut and add ending -er
Euro - Euro: keep the word unchanged
Auto - Autos: add ending -s
Brücke - Brücken: add ending -n
Bus - Busse: add ending -se
Lehrerin - Lehrerinnen: add ending -nen
Kind - Kinder: add ending -er
Frau - Frauen: add ending -en

I may have missed some there too, and sometimes you add similar endings for other reasons too, like -s or -es for possessives and -n or -en to some nouns sometimes for no very good reason. Like, Student is usually singular and Studenten plural, but sometimes Studenten is the singular too. And don't think an Umlaut means a word is plural, because some words with Umlaut are singular (or non-nouns, like über which is a preposition "over"). So sometimes I know a German word but not its plural, or I don't know how to use it in a grammatically correct sentence because I don't know if it's der Arm, die Arm, or das Arm.

And it didn't help that one of my German teachers was pretty bad. He'd basically write a bunch of words on the board for us to learn and not really use them in a sentence or anything. One day we just watched a European football (soccer) game on someone's laptop and the teacher occasionally wrote a word on the board.

School

I have to rewrite a poem by 11:00 tomorrow morning, and I haven't even started. This semester the teachers went crazy on assignments early in the semester.

At least I should be graduating in December

You probably guessed that mine is Terra

- I identified with Terra right away when I played FF6. Apparently a lot of people can't identify with her as much as with some other characters, so maybe that says something about my own personality. Or not.
- Her Trance ability is awesome in boss battles
- She learns magic on her own, so you have magic like Cure and Fire early, plus she learns Drain which is a pain to get out of espers when you'd rather learn something else.
- She has green hair

Posted on 09-02-09 11:53:27 PM, in It's survey time! (last edited by Terra at 09-03-09 12:46 AM) Link
I've been curious about something. I'll reveal the purpose of this survey experiment when I get a decent amount of answers. (It's about US states, so non-Americans may wish to keep that in mind, but anyone can take the survey.)

What follows is an alphabetical list of all 50 US states. What I would like for you to do is, next to each state, name a city in the state. Try to type the name of the first city that comes to mind when you think of the state. Try to avoid using any references like atlases, maps, Wikipedia, etc. You may leave any of the answers blank if you wish; you don't have to come up with cities for all 50 states. Only put one city next to each state.

YouTube pretty much replaces TV for me

I think there will still be more passive forms of entertainment. Sometimes people just want to watch something and not interact with it.

I don't read nearly as much as I used to When I was in high school, I read a lot of books to pass time in classes, but college doesn't waste my time and I can go home if I finish a test early or something (which isn't very common these days). Plus I have broadband now So I have an excuse to be on the Internet a lot.

There's a Kansas City in Kansas but the main one is actually in Missouri. For Minnesota did you mean Minneapolis?

Pretty good for a non-American though I don't think too many Americans would know cities in Canadian provinces, for instance.

Laptops are awesome, even really cheap ones like mine. Especially since I can take it to school, work, vacation, etc. They're often not so good for newer games. I mostly emulate, but I was rather bummed at The Sims 3's underperformance.

Ugh, milk cartons. It's like drinking paper. When I was a kid, there was this time when I drank a sip of chocolate milk (my preferred variety of milk) and some paper got in my mouth.

The Internet seems to be replacing everything else. News, weather, the postal service (except for packages), banking, to some extent libraries. Remember paper encyclopedias? Young people might be like "Where's the edit button?"
