Matthew 6:5

May 23, 2020 - 11:18 AM - by gmc
I was watching trump declaring he was going to tell the governors to open the churches and it niggled. I'm not religious but I have actually read the bible (unlike many religious people I have met) and I was sure there was something about public praying and hypocrisy.

"In the King James Version of the Bible the text reads:

And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites

Acrostic triolets

May 15, 2020 - 2:04 PM - by spot
spot's Avatar
My attention was claimed a few hours ago by someone wanting an acrostic poem. All the first letters of the lines making coherent English.

The breakdown was 8,4,8 lines. I wondered about the 8-line verses. Perhaps they could be triolets.

I went and looked.

There are only three words in English that are the length and pattern of a triolet, ABaAabAB. That limits triolet acrostics to ESSENCES, TENTMATE and ETHERNET.

Just some random thoughts from here. I see I've missed hundreds of threads regarding this and wish I'd checked in earlier. So nice to read about everyone's part of the world first hand.

For those that don't know, I'm a paramedic supervisor who works overnights and have 2 kids, aged 13 and 15.

The most recent rules of Grammar

Apr 19, 2020 - 1:58 PM - by spot
spot's Avatar
It is now a grammatical error to make reference to any natural death without prefixing the clause with the word "sadly".

It is also incorrect to speak of an accidental or criminal death without an announcement that the friends and relations are in our minds at this distressing time.

Both usages were originally optional and depended on circumstance. That is no longer the case, they are now obligatory and consequently meaningless. Not conforming is on a par... [Read More]

Well it's being floated again...the debate on the change of the national anthem

Every time there's a problem nationally or a disaster or whatever this debate comes up time and time again. I'm asking for your opinions.

This is the present anthem. In my opinion it's dull. And basically doesn't apply to me because I'm female. Nor does it apply to the indigenous of this country. Just old white rich men.
