scent (v.)

late 14c., sent "to find the scent of," from Old French sentir "to feel, smell, touch, taste; realize, perceive; make love to," from Latin sentire " to feel, perceive, sense, discern, hear, see" (see sense (n.)).

52 cards for 52 weeks in the year.
2 colors for day and night
4 suits for the 4 seasons and 13 weeks per season.
Twelve court cards representing the 12 months.

If we add each of the cards (ace + ace + ace + ace + two + two + two + two ... etc) we will get 365.
13 + 12 + 11 + 10 + 9 + 8 + 7 + 6 + 5 + 4 + 3 + 2 + 1 = 91 x 4 = 364 :P

still pretty cool. i think it says more about people than playing cards though.

ie. we have divided the year the same way we divide anything.

btw just in reference to the etymology stuff.. this is why smart schools teach latin, latin itself is a useless language - no-one speaks it. but if you know latin, you will understand where all the words we use come from, and what they actually mean. it just makes the world make more sense.

it's pretty mental actually, because latin was popularized by the romans, who then fell, and the empire split into several different languages like french, old english, german, italian, etc. modern English is actually a reformation of Latin. because it's all those languages coming back together.

that's why they're all very similar - this is opposed to other roots like greek, chinese, and arabic.
anti-semitism isn't actually describing jews.. it's describing any arabic language root.*

*not 100% sure on that one.

... just to add to it.. language is the digitization of concepts..

what i mean by that is that language has very definitite meanings, a chair is a chair, a door is a door.
but these are vague terms, one door is not the same as another door. language is a communication of meaning to a practical extent. but it is not comprehensive, it does not communicate everything about it, only a sufficient amount for practical purposes.

you might find it hard to 'put something into words' for that reason.

but see we build up our picture of the world, from these concepts. language is actually very important. if you have 2 words for 'good' and 'bad' you can only form ideas in terms of good and bad. which is why we have 100s of words that convey nuance.

it's why 1984 goes on about new speak, and new think. because when you limit the language people can use to understand the world, you limit their ability to understand the world.

what this means, is that people with similar languages, actually think in similar ways. conversely, people with very different languages, can actually think in very different ways. there are practically no words that dont have a direct translation between the european languages, that's not true for others.

that's why europeans are all kinda similar, because we all share the same language ultimately, we all think the same way.

whether there's a human nature beyond that is anyone's guess.

A Pastor entered his donkey in a race and it won.
The Pastor was so pleased with the donkey that he entered it in another race and it won again.

The local paper read: PASTOR'S ASS OUT FRONT.

The Bishop was so upset with this kind of publicity that he ordered the Pastor not to enter the donkey in another race.

The next day the local paper headline read: BISHOP SCRATCHES PASTOR'S ASS.

This was too much for the Bishop so he ordered the Pastor to get
rid of the donkey.
The Pastor decided to give it to a Nun in a nearby convent.

The local paper, hearing of the news, posted the following headline the next day: NUN HAS BEST ASS IN TOWN.

The Bishop fainted.

He informed the Nun that she would have to get rid of the donkey so she sold it to a farm for $10.

The next day the paper read: NUN SELLS ASS FOR $10

This was too much for the Bishop so he ordered the Nun to buy back the donkey and lead it to the plains where it could run wild.

The next day the headlines read: NUN ANNOUNCES HER ASS IS WILD AND FREE.

The Bishop was buried the next day.

It takes 7 seconds for food to go from your mouth to your stomach.

A human hair can hold 3kg (6.6 pounds for you Americans.)

The length of a mans penis is three times the length of his thumb

A woman’s heart beats twice as fast as a mans.

Women blink more than men

It takes 300 muscles to keep our balance when we stand.

The women have read this whole post

Men are still looking at their thumb

Mayor Rudy and his crack legal team and witness who are Poll Watchers for the Republicans were in MI testifying on the voting fraud.

This man walked up, swore himself in, and he's talking about his internet radio show.

In his experience hosting an internet radio show he saw the voting machines connected to a router.

He is now crying because he needs proof the votes are valid (not that they were fraudulent) or they will not accept the results. Now getting applause.




This is Dave. Dave is struggling a little but to get his story out. His proof of fraud is that they stopped counting at night and in the morning when they restarted it was too quiet in the room.

Linda who is a nurse believes covid is fake. She believes only a sneeze or cough spreads covid. Having a mask below your nose does not spread covid.

Here's Bill. I'm not sure what he's doing here. He doesn't seem positive either. He says the counting room was hot, he carried a thermometer that said 85 degrees.

This next one...................

Here's Matt, he loves FREEDOM. He was at the Stop The Steal rally. He wasn't a poll watcher. He is saying Obamas reign of destruction was caused by Dominion voting machines. His testimony is about signs he saw at a rally.

If nothing else find the woman Poll Watcher from India saying since all Chinese look the same she demanded to see ID.

........if they all look the same what good is the ID.

She was told that in MI you do not have to show ID making her the one committing voter suppression


This is like some sort of Parks and Rec episode

The world was better off with the Expos, Supersonics, Oilers, and Whalers.

Nationals, Thunder, Titans, and Hurricanes are all abominations.
