oh google and your silly little quirks....back in '06-'07 i used the google translator as a sort of proxy to get around my high schools couldnt look at pictures but i still got to look at the anarchists cookbook....homemade napalm is fun gasoline and styrofoam
#17 to #9 - thebaseballexpert (04/09/2014) [-]
what about gasoline and orange juice concentrate?
User avatar #55 to #17 - mymommasallama (04/09/2014) [-]
unfortunately we werent that resourceful....we used one of those big styrofoam blocks people put under their boat docks to help keep it afloat. it was a ~3x5 foot rectangle block. it took the entire thing to fill up one coffee this day i do not see how any of us do not have severe burns from that. we were about as smart as 14 year olds that made their own napalm....

You end your sentences with a dot? Seriously? It's called a full stop. Or a period. Depending on where you're from.
User avatar #4 to #2 - flnonymousseven ONLINE (04/08/2014) [-]
do me a favor, pronounce the full name of a website of your choice phonetically outloud as you would if you were speaking to someone about it. go ahead, I'll wait.
#6 to #4 - anon (04/09/2014) [-]
That's pretty funny, but that's more like anecdotal evidence. "Dot" is phonetically used in regards to a lot of computer things, like blahblah@ You need to login to view this link being "blah blah at yahoo dot com" or You need to login to view this link being "w w w dot", but commonly aximil is correct, it's typically called a period or a full stop. Although I'm not sure how incorrect dot may be, as it could be an emerging trend to call a " . " a dot.
User avatar #7 to #6 - aximil ONLINE (04/09/2014) [-]
I'm sure dot is not incorrect, but it's also not correct. I'm just more saddened that everyone is becoming lazier and lazier and turning EVERYTHING into slang. Also, slang is slang for shortened language.

Stop acting like a superior douche just because you refuse to change.
Do you realize how the english language has changed since the 1800, 1700's? Or why there are differences between british english and american english?
American english itself is just a lazier form of british english. Just because its changed from what you initially learned does not make it a bad thing.

the scientific name for dog is Canis lupus familiaris, before you ask, yes i had to google that **** . onto my point. what does anyone lose from using the word dog instead?
i am by now means a supporter of the mumbling has replaced speaking for some people, but i think you might going over board if you are giving the internet age hell for its use of the period, and the subsequent cross naming that is taking place.
User avatar #13 to #10 - aximil ONLINE (04/09/2014) [-]
We also don't use the original name for period either, being περίοδος. There's a difference between using a common word and it's origin. Now that your entire first line is gone, I'll address what problem I have with the cross naming. Dot is used for computing in things such as IP addresses, emails, URLs, and various other things. A period (or full stop) is used when it's referring to talking, be it verbal or textual.
#15 to #13 - quiescat (04/09/2014) [-]
my point being this is how living languages evolve. the merging of the verbal usage with its web base counter part hardly seems out of place for a era that is more likely to text or email then speak. calling it lazy seems disingenuous when you know most young people will hear a hundred references You need to login to view this link before they even reach grade school.
where as i think the nature of auto correct combined with spell check should be affording us the use of large words instead we get acronyms for every thing, a trend that is not likely going any where sadly.

to my first line *dukkōn and the middle English word dogge are more the origins of the word dog, Canis lupus familiaris is its needless complex, but very modern scientific name. the point trying to be made is that speaking does not need to be complex to be proper.

i dont think me and ax have much of a disagreement here, much less any thing as silly as an argument. it is simply a discussion that like the rest of the internet will accomplish nothing, but sometimes its fun to share

A little butthurt, aximil?
#36 to #2 - shadowgandalf (04/09/2014) [-]
In danish it can be several things.
"Prik" is the older one, used some really old people, and children.
"Punktum" is the most commonly used one, and the one used officially.
"Dot" for internet uses. We didn't have such a word before the internet age, but anyone worth their salt working with IT are fluent in english anyway, so we just adopt new words to fill in the blanks.

User avatar #45 to #36 - zaiopeperse (04/09/2014) [-]
Same in norwegian
User avatar #37 to #36 - aximil ONLINE (04/09/2014) [-]
How is that related to English? Be it American English (period) or British English (full stop)?
#41 to #37 - shadowgandalf (04/09/2014) [-]
Wanted to point out, that if there are multiple viable words, and you are speaking on an international platform(like FJ) then they are all viable, especially "dot", seeing as it is the most commonly used word.
#18 to #2 - xcoreyx (04/09/2014) [-]
But a period is still a dot... Just like a laptop is a rectangle

In my native language we call it a dot. First time I came across terms like comma, dot or semicolon was here, thanks grammarnazies.
User avatar #32 to #2 - redtooth (04/09/2014) [-]
OOOOR, where I'm from for an example, it's called a dot.

Not a full stop. Not a period. The full scientific name of it is a dot (in my language at least).

So stop giving people **** because of language barriers, maybe?
User avatar #35 to #32 - aximil ONLINE (04/09/2014) [-]
And what country are you from?
User avatar #38 to #35 - redtooth (04/09/2014) [-]
Croatia, and I know that the surrounding countries on the balkan peninsula use the word 'dot' too.

#54 to #38 - carrotpotato (04/09/2014) [-]
You don't speak english in Croatia tho. In english it's period/full stop dot is more used in math no matter what's your native language.
User avatar #56 to #54 - redtooth (04/09/2014) [-]
Yeah, but he can't know whether whoever made this is a native speaker or not. I mean, it's stupid to point out trivial things like dot or period which are most likely not caused by slang, misspelling or laziness but because of lingual differences.

I dont know, but sometimes i feel that people are trying to seem more intelligent by using a period, like its not really needed. Its the internet you know
User avatar #23 to #19 - realreality (04/09/2014) [-]
You used a period in your comment
User avatar #24 to #23 - sonnyboii (04/09/2014) [-]
Well yeah, mid-sentence i use it to not seem like a retard. But if its just a short sentence thats a statement or something, and they use it it just seems so douchy often

but i dont really mind though, using proper punctuation and grammar is always good
User avatar #25 to #24 - realreality (04/09/2014) [-]
Now, this just seems a bit off to me. It seems as though you're making an active effort not to punctuate at the end of a sentence, which might be harder than simple end of sentence punctuation. I know I had to make an effort not to punctuate in the previous comment but I guess it's just a force of habit and if you force yourself to change the way you like to do things just because someone else thinks it's douchy, doesn't that make you a douche anyways ?
I find punctuation to be quite enjoyable. It lets you know when to take a breath, while reading and when something's a question or an exclamation. I have no clue where this idea of a period being a sign of rudeness came from? It's just a weird concept, to me. Punctuation for me makes everything I read into something more than just information being transferred, it just tells a whole other story that the words do not. I like it and I don't understand why someone wouldn't but hey to each their own but I shouldn't be perceived as rude or angry just because I like using periods. A period simply means that "This sentence is over" and that's that.
User avatar #26 to #25 - sonnyboii (04/09/2014) [-]
Yeah pretty much, but as i said I feel that sometimes people seem a bit douchy when using it, but most of the time when they make a comment that seems a bit rude in the first place

But i dont use punctuation in the end of my sentences too often, i just move the cursor as soon as im done writing
User avatar #29 to #26 - realreality (04/09/2014) [-]
Fair enough, I guess in this case you're only a douche if you're trying to be one.
User avatar #30 to #29 - sonnyboii (04/09/2014) [-]
Yeah we can end it on that

User avatar #27 to #19 - thunderkrux (04/09/2014) [-]
I like to use punctuation otherwise the sentence just doesnt seem right you know like in this sentence where Im no using any punctuation all just reading it as Im typing sounds really ******* weird in my head
User avatar #28 to #27 - sonnyboii (04/09/2014) [-]
i know
User avatar #47 to #19 - TheMather ONLINE (04/09/2014) [-]
If that's all it takes for someone to seem like they're trying to appear intelligent to you then I'm afraid it's just you being horribly unintelligent.
Proper punctuation isn't just a proof of intelligence; it's a formality, a sign of respect and first and foremost a grammatical tool.

Now semicolons I could understand, they're almost deprecated in informal writing, but hating on periods makes you nothing more than what you speak up against; a prick.

Dude chill

#33 to #19 - insanefreak (04/09/2014) [-]
I know what you mean. However, it seems quite strange to me that if you are typing down multiple sentences, you'll automatically end every sentence with a period. To not end the last one feels wrong to me, hence why I end all sentences with a period.

I don't judge people for it though. The only thing that bothers me really is people using one word sentences with all caps, or no caps at all, acting obnoxiously stupid.
User avatar #34 to #33 - sonnyboii (04/09/2014) [-]

Nevermind the LoL community.
'fack u'

Seriously, if I take the time to insult someone on the internet, I use long phrases. Describe their incompetence in detail. Nothing more pleasant than receiving a well written, witty insult.

Otherwise, it just seems like little kids who are greatly underage somehow got access to a keyboard to me.
Yeah, I'm stuck up like that.

Most people read it with a tone of voice in mind.

"hey dude what's up?" sounds friendly and casual
"Hey, dude. What's up?" sounds more formal like you don't really know them or you're kind of serious
"wanna talk?" can make people worry similar to "we need to talk"
"hey, wanna talk? " seems a lot less formal and you wouldn't need to worry as much
"hey" sounds a lot less serious than "hey." people might think you've got something on your mind or you're just purposely conveying your mood and are being an attention seeking asshole. It's like sighing louder and louder until someone talks to you

Besides talking to maybe a coworker/boss or someone you don't know very well talking so formally is normal. I don't expect you to perfectly enunciate every word when talking to your friends.
User avatar #53 to #50 - anenemy (04/09/2014) [-]
Well, his would all make sense, but you also forgot one important thing: the other person you're talking to. I use punctuation all the time, and none of my texts are seen as "formal" or "serious."
