Quote from: SoldierofFortune on April 16, 2019, 11:25:46 PMIn the arab language the word used for umbrella is "shemsiyye" -iyye is a suffix which means "ness" as in the word whatness, and shems means sun. That is, arabs see the same tool as "protector from the sun" and latins see "a tool that gives you shadow, shade" You know umbra means shadow.

Quote from: SoldierofFortune on April 17, 2019, 12:49:59 AMI dont understand what watts means by this sentence. Maybe because of lack of context. Can you please explain or paraphare it?
Quote from: Cavebear on April 18, 2019, 09:12:46 AMThe map is not the territory. The image isn't the thing itself. A picture of a can of soup is not actually a can of soup. The idea is the realization that an image of something is not the actual object.Hope this helped.

Quote from: Cavebear on April 18, 2019, 12:40:00 PMWell, I'm more into (sadly) "stupid vs not so stupid" rather than left/right, conservative/liberal, Repub/Dem. I want someone who thinks like a mayor (fix the potholes and plow the streets), understands that times change (and time moves forward), can stand up to bullies (cat whappy-paws), and knows that power comes from group cooperation not missiles. Don't know whether that will be a Dem or Repub in 2020 yet, but it SURE isn't gonna be Trump!
Quote from: Baruch on April 18, 2019, 02:58:02 PMI don't plan on voting for Trump either. So far no one other than Tulsi Gabbard looks good in the D-clown-car.
Quote from: Cavebear on April 18, 2019, 05:02:25 PMSo you don't intend to vote? J/KJoe, Joe, Joe...
