BLB: Seneca saying

I'm a bit bogged down with 3rd and 4th conjugations and wanted a break so I did this as a bit of amusement. I always want to know the mottos a book uses before I can read them. :roll: The Beginner's Latin Book by Collar and Daniell has one from Seneca:

Longum iter est per praecepta, breve et efficax per exempla.

I wanted to see if ...

governing bodies

a coworker and I were discussing government this morning (great topic after a night shift! lol). She suggested a form of national government wherein we'd have a group of five co-equal leaders, each with a specific area of responsibility (finance, international trade, etc) in which they had to be specially qualified. These leaders would be elected individually (so they wouldn't be all of one party). This way there wouldn't be one person with too much ...

The ~-sign

I have a minor question concerning Greek. What does the ~-sign that is sometimes positioned over a letter (e. g.: ã) indicate?

Thank you. :)

Supernatural Beings...

Ok, I've been thinking about this for a while, and I think I've come to a logical conclusion. Supernatural beings simply cannot exist. Consider the following: We, and everything else in the universe exists in our universe. Now that seems redundant and obvious right? Well, it should. Now, the definition of something supernatural is something outside of the natural world. Since a supernatural being is outside of nature, or the universe, it cannot exist! Think ...

Greek: an Intensive Course by Hansen and Quinn

Does anyone else use this book? I picked this one up about a month ago and have been impressed by its thoroughness, which is really important to someone learning it on their own, like me. There is no answer key for most of the book, though, and I would hate to find out that I've been doing something majorly wrong for six months. What does everyone else think of this book?

The Best Way

I downloaded "First Greek Book". I've got the alphabet mostly memorized, and can transliterate the Lesson 1 words and give the names of the letters. So, on to Lesson 2. It talks about the cirumflex, which (always?) goes on long syllables. How does the circumflex indicate which syllable gets the most emphasis? And the grave, can anyone describe in real life terms what makes that different from the acute?

Does the long symbol over a ...

From 'A Simple Math Problem' @ the Academy

i will pray for you. math also is not a being, it is a set of ideas in a person's head. therefore it can have no gender and therefore can not be attracted to one. therefore it is not gay.

Neva Get Enuf

A while ago Steven was sitting at home, a school night (he didn't go in) 4 am, listening to his favourite tracks whilst staring at a booklet of JWW pages stapled together. He was thinking about the lack of activity on textkit laughing how blunt JWW is and bumping his caput to a class track, by girl group 3LW (now 2LW still titled 3LW because one of the girls threw chicken in another girl's face) ...
