If the meteor eater eats the meteor before it hits the ground, does it ever become a meteorite?
#17 to #16 - youxbarstard (03/29/2013) [-]
No, it be comes a meteorate.
#18 to #17 - muffinssnuffims (03/29/2013) [-]
But I thought it had to hit the ground.

So I was thinking it'd have to wait till he pooped it out.

Not only did I **** my sentence, I also forgot to capitalize the pun.

It's not one of my better ones so it's no biggie.

Technically, it did hit the ground since he was on the ground when he ate the meteor...

I like it because English is like

True that, I really think that English is a wonderfully expressive, yet subtle language that doesn't get enough credit simply because it is so mainstream/white. Not to talk down to other languages, of course, they all have something interesting to offer.

It's just too bad that half the people that know it can't speak it worth a damn.

You take every single early language that could reach the UK area, mush them all together, what do you get? One big confusing hybrid language that seems to be spreading all over. I was always confused by that, I've heard from many people that English is practically the most difficult language, yet everyone is adopting it into their cultures.
#85 to #73 - anon (03/29/2013) [-]
I've actually heard English is one of the easiest languages due to its simple grammar.
User avatar #105 to #85 - subcelestial ONLINE (03/29/2013) [-]
I agree with this particular statement. Personally, English is actually my fourth language, after French, Vietnamese, and Chinese. I'm now able to speak English without a pronounced French/Asian accent. My grammar is somewhat good also.

English is one of the easiest languages in the world when it comes to grammar, but it is very tricky when it comes to pronunciation. When I see an English word I'm not familiar with, I often have no idea how to correctly pronounce it.

It's a bit the opposite of French. Once you're a bit familiar with the language you now how to pronounce everything but the grammar has a ******* of exceptions and exceptions on those exceptions etc.
English is my second language, French my third.
User avatar #146 to #138 - fosforgasxiii (03/29/2013) [-]
Especially the "th" is tricky. Sometimes it is pronounced as a "d" and sometimes it sounds like blowing air through your teeth.
User avatar #169 to #146 - bulbakip (03/29/2013) [-]
In english, "th" is pronounced more like a "z". "This"= "Zis", with a short "I"
User avatar #149 to #138 - makedonski (03/29/2013) [-]
I agree with what you said about French. I don't understand it at all, but I can pronounce it pretty good when I read it

As much as I hate English, its complexity gives rise to some of our best humor that other languages don't have......I think.

what the **** am I looking at
User avatar #93 to #89 - IamSofaKingdom (03/29/2013) [-]
The words or the picture. I don't know why people are upset by it. I thought it was reasonably related to the picture. The combination of letters that forms bow would be unbelievably difficult for esl students. I just didn't have the pun-like qualities like "meatier meteor".

Oh well. I won't be deleting it. Just thumbs.

i don't understand all the hate on this, seems pretty related. . .

I don't know. This has happened to me a few times. I even got thumbed down on my explanation. Not a single words as to why though. Maybe people were confused by it? The world may never know.

I'm just glad they're trying to learn the language. ******* immigrants piss me off, especially illegal. Get the **** out of the country. Learn the language BEFORE you ******* come here and while you're at it, get rid of that accent. We speak English in America. Learn it. If I went to their country, then I'd learn their language. If I go to Germany, I'd learn German. If I go to Russia, I'd learn Russian. If you come to America, learn English
User avatar #142 to #135 - shadowhorn (03/29/2013) [-]
It doesn't always work that way. Believe it or not, some people can't afford to get a teacher or buy a language program.
#170 to #142 - anon (03/29/2013) [-]
In their case stay in your own country.
User avatar #143 to #135 - fosforgasxiii (03/29/2013) [-]
Getting rid of an accent is very, very hard unless you learn the language from a young age. Most older Americans who migrated to Europe also speak with an accent.
#172 to #143 - anon (03/29/2013) [-]
Then stay where the **** you are.
User avatar #175 to #172 - fosforgasxiii (03/29/2013) [-]
Would you want to stay where you are:
-your life is threatened by famine, war, ethnic violence, climatic disasters etc?
-you're so poor you can't care for yourself anymore or your family but you know that in another country even the lowest wages are still a lot higher than what you earn?
-or in case of the Americans I mentioned before, you get a nice highpaying joboffer in another country?

Also if people stayed where they were, you wouldn't even been born, since almost every American decended from European migrants.
#177 to #175 - anon (03/29/2013) [-]
This is awkward because I don't give a **** . They're not me, I have a pretty good life. I have no empathy for them. **** them actually completely, I don't give a **** about their life. But instead how about they try to fix their own damn country? Don't like the way things are going? Do something about it. Don't be a little bitch quitter and run from your problems. But the European thing you said, alright back then but now we need to end it. It's not the past anymore. I live in the present.
User avatar #180 to #177 - fosforgasxiii (03/29/2013) [-]
So just because you don't like accents, people should be prohibited to move elsewhere, no matter what reason?
#181 to #180 - anon (03/29/2013) [-]
I'm man enough to admit this, the accent part was a stretch and was said hastily out of anger. I just really hate talking to someone with a thick accent, it pisses me off and makes me physically angry. I tense up and glare, I can't help it. But like I said, how about they try to fix their country instead of running from their problems.? Don't like the way things are going? Do something about it.
User avatar #183 to #181 - fosforgasxiii (03/29/2013) [-]
You shouldn't run away from your problems either.
If you really have a problem with accents, then grow some balls and tell people with accents to back off to their own country, instead of whining on the Internet.
#186 to #183 - anon (03/29/2013) [-]
I wish I could but people are too damn sensitive and i'm pretty sure i'd get kicked out of college if I told the students around campus for that. Classified as a hate crime possibly.
User avatar #188 to #186 - fosforgasxiii (03/29/2013) [-]
So you can't even tell people you don't like their accents, and yet you expect others to be capable of solving difficult problems like poverty, violence etc in their countries.
Nice logic.
#192 to #188 - anon (03/30/2013) [-]
But the difference is I don't run away from my problems, I stay here and power through it. Unlike them who just leave.

well i don't want to say outright that it wasn't covered in our curriculum, but i certainly don't remember it, hardly something worth learning really, don't come across many meteorite to be honest

My teacher told our class that we learned it for the sake of an argument basically.
