Topic: Grandma's Aspirin and Coke: The Date-Rape Drug?
Posted: Wednesday, June 3, 2009 1:16:11 PM
It might be because she heard there was coke(as in cocaine) residues in coca cola and thought it would be a bad mix :P

I learn alot of new words using this site.

It's a great site for discovering and learning new words, and if you want more info on the word, just look it up on TFD :)

Me being a norwegian and all, I will recommend fishliver oil! As it is a healthy supplement for anyone.

And the dosage is easy, you just take one spoonful in the morning, and if you don't like the aftertaste, just down a glass of orangejuice afterwards, which is also healthy :D

However, you should be careful with your intake of vitamin A, as you can exceed the recommended dietary allowance

Also you should read up on this link on cod liver oil for some general information on the substance :P Which is what makes fish so healthy*.

Why don't you mix Brazilian and Portugal flags into one and change? =D
Ok, that was an useless comment xD

It should by the way be, "that was a useless comment" Angel

I don't know about the english word, but the norwegian version which is "Jordmor" ("jord" meaning 'earth' and "mor" meaning 'mother'), when addressing a male midwife we just switch "Mor" with "Far".
Where 'Far' means father, making it "Earthfather"
Topic: Prescriptivist or Descriptivist?
Posted: Tuesday, March 17, 2009 9:45:13 AM
I find myself correcting grammatical flaws in my friends writings more so than they would like me to :o This might be connected to the fact that I live in Norway, speaking norwegian. So I would describe myself as a Prescriptivist by nature :)

It drives me crazy when people use the wrong their/there/they're!
Their=belonging to them
There=in that location
They're=contraction of "they are"

Those mentioned above annoys me to little bits and pieces >,<
Topic: Best books for building vocabulary?
Posted: Monday, March 16, 2009 1:48:39 PM
I would like to recommend a few titles, such as "Pillars of the Earth" by Ken Follett(and the sequel, to which I can't remember the name at the moment), where I found a lot of words concerning monks and monasteries, chapels and cathedrals and other words with relation to the house of God.
And perhaps most of all, words of masonry and architecture, for those who are interested in such of course :)

Hei, Jeg tenkte bare jeg skulle starte en tråd for å få et overblikk over hvor mange nordmenn som bruker, og eventuellt promotere siden litt ;)

Det er jo en super side for folk som har lyst å finne ut av hva et ord betyr, eller for å utvide ordforrådet sitt med noen raske synonymer =)
