Does anyone else ever see at the bottom of the screen that there’s a guest online and just think

”Oh look, another possible friend a-hard-days-night-paul-7 Forumpudlian”? 

Or is it just me...

  

That used to be me. I always wondered why there was one random guest online 24/7. You're not alone!

What really makes me sad is seeing the ever-changing list of new members at the bottom of the screen who never post. I'm always very happy when a new member becomes active on the forum.

Tell someone you love them today, because life is short.

But shout it at them in German because life is also very confusing.

Why I came: For some reason whenever I look at my dog, I think of George, and today I finally figured out why. The color of my dog's fur is almost exactly the same color as the name "George."

Yes, yes I believe you did. (I’m terrible at spelling.)

Ah, I see. Sometimes I associate Beatle’s names with colors as well.

I think most of us associate words and names and sounds* with colours, but our dear Fiddy actually has synesthesia. john-lennon-salute_gif

I think you get a free pass if it's German. 🙂

As Beatlebug said, I have synesthesia, so words have colors for me. paul-mccartney-thumb_gif Actually, I associate other colors with certain words too, which is where it gets very confusing. For instance, like a normal person, I associate the color pink with the word "pink." But the word "pink" is not pink; it's a combination of yellow, orange, and green. So I see the word pink as being pink, even though it's not. Weird stuff john-lennon-salute_gif

 

Question: is there a politically correct term to refer to someone from the US besides "American"?

I keep getting ads for "Feel Good Tees" except they're Trump t-shirts.

The Zigtionary is interesting to look at as a simple case-study of how language evolves. Like the first entry on that is to "to Zig" when you spit your drink out whilst reading a funny post. That entry was made in late-2010 and by-the-time I came here in early 2013, it wasn't in-use anymore. Such a common phrase in the early days of the forum, extinct within 3 years.

Thanks! I have grapheme-color synesthesia, so it's only my letters, numbers, and words are colored-- sounds are as colorless for me as they are for anyone else. However, the song titles (and lyrics) have color, so I do associate songs with colors. For instance, In My Life is mostly yellow and green. Get Back is orange and red. All My Loving is purple and green (and red, in the middle.) Feel free to PM me if you have any other questions, I'll be happy to answer 'em a-hard-days-night-george-4

I can so relate to that, lol.

When you feel lonely you should come to the BB! Then you won't be lonely anymore! Assuming there are other people online! Which there normally are! But not always! Why am I talking/typing like this!
