  • I'm guessing this is about weaving. It would be easier to pull out the woof (or weft) than it would be to change out the warp.

  • Have you ever heard of the "Bunnicula" books? The titular character is allegedly a vampire rabbit--but he's a vegetarian (he only sucks the juice out of vegetables).

    I know there's a lot of tension in the world of bunny-bilby relations, but maybe a shared love of hummus could be a place to start.

  • Be careful! I'm reminded of Charles Darwin--but he tried to do this with a beetle he was collecting. He wrote, "I will give a proof of my zeal: one day, on tearing off some old bark, I saw two rare beetles and seized one in each hand; then I saw a third and new kind, which I could not bear to lose, so that I popped the one which I held in my right hand into my mouth. Alas it ejected some intensely acrid fluid, which burnt my tongue so that I was forced to spit the beetle out, which was lost, as well as the third one." (As seen here: http://darwin-online.org.uk/content/frameset?itemID=F1497&pageseq=1&viewtype=text )

  • I was just reading this:

    During World War II, American auto manufacturers played a major role in assembling the famed "Arsenal of Democracy" that helped defeat the Nazis. This arsenal included tens of thousands of tanks called the M4, more popularly known as Shermans. After the war, auto manufacturers went back to building cars for the families that won the war. Over the ensuing decades, those cars have gotten gradually larger. Today, those pickup trucks and SUVs, which account for the majority of vehicles sold in the U.S. and intended to peacefully transport families and loved ones, are almost as big as the tanks they used to build.

  • GPT-3, its successor, GPT-4, and its cousins Bard, Chinchilla and LLaMA do not have bodies, and so they cannot determine, on their own, which objects are foldable, or the many other properties that the psychologist J.J. Gibson called affordances. Given people’s hands and arms, paper maps afford fanning a flame, and a thermos affords rolling out wrinkles.

    Without arms and hands, let alone the need to wear unwrinkled clothes for a job, GPT-3 cannot determine these affordances. It can only fake them if it has run across something similar in the stream of words on the internet.

  • I've been trying to figure out how I would normally say this (in the middle of nebraksa). I say "wind turbine" as if it rhymes with "turban," but if I were talking about a "turbine engine," then it would rhyme with the way Craig Morgan sings "combine" in the song "International Harvester."

  • Trust, but verify (Russian: Доверяй, но проверяй, tr. Doveryay, no proveryay, IPA: dəvʲɪˈrʲæj no prəvʲɪˈrʲæj) is a rhyming Russian proverb. The phrase became internationally known in English after Suzanne Massie, an American scholar, taught it to Ronald Reagan, then president of the United States, the latter of whom used it on several occasions in the context of nuclear disarmament discussions with the Soviet Union.

  • During World War II the Japanese built some nine thousand hydrogen-filled, paper balloons to carry small bombs to North America, hoping to set fires and inflict casualties. The first was launched November 3, 1944. The balloons rose to about 30,000 feet, where winds aloft transported them across the Pacific Ocean.

    On February 22, 1945, Kenneth Hamilton, living on a nearby ranch, observed a balloon floating eastward. It looked like "an orange ball with the sun shining on it. . . . As we were watching, it turned into a cloud of smoke and went to the ground." The balloons carried timing devices to release the bombs and then destroy the envelope. Alliance Army Air Field officials recovered a valve and pieces of shroud lines where the balloon came down.

    Parts of five balloon bombs were recovered in Nebraska from a total of 285 balloon bomb incidents reported across North America. Although the balloon bombs proved ineffective as military weapons, they caused six fatalities and a few minor fires in the United States. Only after the war was their story revealed.

The phrase is a diving term and essentially means, in White's words, "that there's so much, what we call 'turbidity,' or so much stuff in the water that things just kind of appear out of nowhere, and it's slightly claustrophobic."

They eventually decided they'd rather get together to play Star Fleet Battles--and while I appreciate the idea of using a map of hexes instead of squares, I found having to stop and consult the rules in the middle of every battle was a bit tiresome.

  • Dungeons and Dragons is a collaborative game based on storytelling. Each player is responsible for describing the actions of one character. The person running the game for them each session (the Dungeon Master) is like an omniscient narrator and provides each of the players with the setting--what the townspeople are doing, what the merchants might have for sale, what information innkeepers might have if the players' character were to simply ask, what random encounters might happen (based on the roll of the dice), including whether there are any monsters nearby that they could fight. Murderhobos don't care about any of the details--their characters just kill whatever or whomever they encounter.

    Edit: Maybe that's not a good translation. A murderhobo is a character that deals with every novel situation in the game by defaulting to death or destruction because it's all a fantasy world and they can do whatever they want there. It could just be the strategy of one player, or it could be the whole group. The hobo part comes from the fact that the characters tend to wander from place to place looking for adventure (or things to kill).

  • Let's say you're hiking, and you drop a piece of glass on the trail. Eventually someone will walk along the trail and might cut themselves on the glass.

    You'd be really sorry to hear if it happens to someone you know in a week. But what if the victim lived thousands, even millions of years in the future?

    Philosopher William MacAskill, 35, likes to bring up this scenario to drive home a point: "If you're thinking about the possibility of harming someone, |it doesn't| really matter that person will be harmed next week or next year, or even in a hundred or a thousand years. Harm is harm."

    That's MacAskill's argument behind longtermism, a term he coined to describe the idea that humans have a moral responsibility to protect the future of humanity, prevent it from going extinct — and create a better future for many generations to come. He outlines this concept in his new book, What We Owe the Future.

  • If we don't, I nominate you to make one for us. (Actually, even if we do, I still nominate you to make your own for our amusement.)

    August 4, 2022

  • See gemel.

    August 3, 2022

  • Not what I was expecting.

    August 3, 2022

  • I just got gnathostegite as a random word.

    August 3, 2022

  • Ooh! An open list!

    August 2, 2022

  • See comments on quaternion.

    August 2, 2022

  • Bulla?

    August 2, 2022

  • May 35?

    August 2, 2022

  • I think it's great (which probably says something about my own lists).

    August 2, 2022

  • I'm reminded of the joke about a grasshopper that walks in to a bar. The bartender says, "Hey, we have a drink named after you," and the grasshopper says, "You have a drink named Steve?"

    August 2, 2022

  • You know me too well.

    July 28, 2022

  • That's fun, Bilby. What era is that from?

    July 28, 2022

  • What a fun list!

    July 27, 2022

  • I like your lists.

    July 27, 2022

  • Why did ruzuzu cross the road? To create an open list.

    July 27, 2022

  • That sounds like a perfectly valid reason to cross the road, tankhughes.

    July 27, 2022

  • "Chick-weed" makes me think of Twelfth Night: "Give me thy hand, And let me see thee in thy woman’s weeds."

    July 27, 2022

  • I like your lists.

    July 25, 2022

  • Ah, man. Sorry. I guess the list is sealed.

    In the meantime, you can send me suggestions. (I'll do some experiments to see whether this has something to do with how I'm creating these lists.)

    July 25, 2022

  • Oh! That's a good one, w. I've also heard people say "I,D" for id. (cf. ibid).

    July 22, 2022

  • I hadn't, but I will now.

    July 20, 2022

  • Hm. Ploughshares cut into swards.

    July 20, 2022

  • Has anyone made this into a list yet? It would be hilarious to have jean dimmock as a random entry on a jean dimmock list.

    July 19, 2022

  • I like your lists.

    July 18, 2022

  • (I was beginning to lose faith in the notion that every potential list is an existing list.)

    July 18, 2022

  • Is it possible that we don't have any lists about seals yet?

    Edit: Ah. here's a seals-and-sea-lions list, at least.

  • I just noticed for the first time your kind comment on my profile!! Thank you!! I like your lists! They've served as many an inspiration for me.

    March 29, 2018

  • Yum! Thanks.

    May 17, 2016

  • Hey zuzu, hummus detected at botryoidal!

    May 17, 2016

  • so myriad led to banzai via tags and I added that...therefore banzai, ruzuzuzuzuzu

    July 20, 2015

  • Thank you, bilby. As you know, I'm also fond of misheard-numa-numa-lyrics.

    June 22, 2015

  • This made me think of you: http://www.metrolyrics.com/song-ml-video-cea.html

    It was probably the bananaphone.

    June 18, 2015

  • I only just recently noticed that there's a comments section! Yikes! Anyways, unreal-laurens-friend-finder is up and running and needs contributions! So many exclamation points!

    June 16, 2015

  • Eek! TankHughes, I'm glad I was able to point out that list to you, but I'm sorry to contribute to the demise of another. May I console myself with the thought that you'll eventually replace it with a new list for our amusement?

    April 23, 2015

  • I'd respond to you on my list... BUT I DELETED IT! *shock* It made more sense to add my 4 to tbtabby's Location Slang list instead. I'm happy someone else has made a large list that I can legitimately add Canadian tuxedo and Mexican wave to.

    April 21, 2015

  • Thank you for your kind comment of December 15, ruzuzu. It pains me to have overlooked your comment for so long but, in the absence of the Community page, I seem to have been looking in the wrong places for evidence of activity. I had begun to fear that I was the only one still visiting regularly.

    When I last communicated with Erin she wrote that she had a fix for the Community page but was having difficulty getting it installed on the server. I think it is possible we will not have the Community page back until after the holidays. I hope people will not have lost the habit of visiting.

    I hope your holidays are happy ones.

    December 22, 2014

  • Nope. Just dry pita pocket editions.

    August 11, 2014

  • Hey babe, read any good hummus books lately?

    August 10, 2014

  • Thanks, bilby. I needed that.

    July 21, 2014

  • Can you ask around for me then? I'm sure they come from Riga.

    *chortle chortle chortle*

    July 18, 2014

  • I'm really only a half-Lat. I have no idea what a marole is.

    July 18, 2014

  • What is a marole? I thought I might as well ask a Latvian.

    July 18, 2014

  • I don't know of a list for obsolete and disused science terms. Maybe time to start one?

    May 11, 2014

  • I vote we name the inherent sound of fun ruzuzurrus

    March 19, 2014

  • And so do I!

    But I don't understand how we are supposed to find this █████ comment box on one's profile.

    February 21, 2014

  • Hi ruzuzu. Bovine traces detected over at jomo.

    December 13, 2013

  • Hey ruzuzu, I have tripled the length of your calculator words list - hope you like it!

    May 13, 2013

  • I haven't heard her perform. I did have a chance to listen to her read some of her poems. She did them more than justice!

    April 16, 2013

  • I knew she plays the sax. Have you read 'Crazy Brave' yet?

    I wonder how many people realize the etymological significance of the title.

    Playing the sax is 'crazy brave' of course.

    The sax is the ultimate soul instrument with its long neck and throaty sound (see nephesh)

    My niece Ramona has taught me that well!

    She has 'crazy brave' in her blood, too.

    April 16, 2013

  • Me? Why?

    *retaliates with a volley of fufluns*

    January 28, 2013

  • Fonk you, ruzuzu.

  • Huh! Can't even make the pronunciations play at "hot dog"....go figure. ACK!

    April 25, 2012

  • So, the feedback page is otiose? 'Zu, are you able to create pronunciations? I'm having no luck at all. Is it broke? Can we access pronunciations of old?

    April 25, 2012

  • And I less than three you! Miss you guys. You know how it feels sometimes, though... I visit often but can't find anything to add to the conversation.

    I really wish there was an easier way to follow threads. If you don't spend lots of time here, you have to open all links on the Zeitmunity page. There has to be a different way!

    March 29, 2012

  • Thanks, 'zu. I probably would have found it eventually if I'd spent more time. Cheers!

    March 16, 2012

  • oh thank you, good catch!

  • Glad you liked my definition of Bulgar - I'm a total newbie. Don't know how to create a list, or what its purpose is, or how to use it, etc. Tips?

  • What's all the fuss about <3' secret messages? Ah! I see! Can it really be as simple as hiding messages behind' hearts?

    January 14, 2012

  • Perhaps I'm <3' not' as smart as I think I am.

    January 13, 2012

  • Hmm.

    January 13, 2012

  • Dear ruzuzu,

    You are <3' the opposite of' a terrible bore.

    Yours with no <3' thing but' fondness,
