The list of new words with the prefix man- is pretty long, including terms like mansplaining, manslamming, and manspreading. However, why stop there? Here are more words that the word needs. a) Manreaching When a tall man grabs something you need from a high shelf  for you because you’re too short to get it yourself. b)...

If Other Businesses Acted like Airlines

People are getting upset at the forceful removal of the passenger from a United Airline flight. I don’t know why, honestly. I mean, not only it’s legal for airlines to sell more seats than they have and choose what paying customers to deny access, even after they’ve been seated, but they also have the right to send the cops after them and beat and drag them out. Also, isn’t every passenger familiar with all the rules and legality issues of such incidents? If you can memorize all 150 first generation pokemon, surely you know the Title 18 code by heart. But to prove the point to show you how reasonable airlines’...

Good Bad Translations Mar12

Good Bad Translations

Translating is not as easy as many people think. Words do not always have a one-to-one equivalent in another language. Add slang, localisms, sayings and other nuances and it becomes easier to make a mistake. Fortunately, sometimes some translations are so bad, they’re good. Here are a few of them. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 When not busy mixing his whites with colors, Flippy works as a writer, translator, and language teacher.
