A Twitter thread of people discussion which colors they associate with which subject in school

People Debate Which Color Folder Correlates To Which Subjects in School

When you're in high school, you have very little freedom. One of the few choices you can make for yourself is which trapper keeper you get from Staples. This is a critical decision, as that multiuse binder won't break for at least three years, so you better make the right choice. The question of “which binder color should I choose for which subject” was never one that phased me. I simply picked the binders with the prettiest colors and chose which subjects they were for based on ambiguous vibes…

A compilation of strange British photos and memes

Bloody Brilliant British Images

British people get a lot of slack from Americans online. They get roasted for their teeth, food , and accents in ways that nearly always come off as hacky. Like we get it, Brits put peas and beans on foods that are largely incomprehensible to the Yankee mind and stomach, but can we let it rest? British culture through the American lens can lean somewhat limited. Personally, my primary outlets for learning about British culture have been heavily influenced by memes and internet pop culture: Harr…

15 Shirts With Hilarious Translation Errors

You've all heard the stories of English speakers getting tattoos of phrases in languages they don't speak. They try to get something inspirational or beautiful tattooed on an extremely visible body part only to discover later that what their tattoo really said was either something random or humiliating. Either way, it was not what they asked for. Although this is still happening today, this trend in the tattoo world was huge in the 90s and 2000s and will never fully go away. Although this pheno…

Weird Duolingo Sentences To Stimulate Your Broca's Area

Language acquisition is not known to be quickly accomplishable or straightforward. Most of us spend four years in a high school classroom fruitlessly trying to learn French, Spanish, or German, to completely forget everything we've learned in the weeks after graduating. I even took three semesters of Russian language courses in college, which may or may not have been because my favorite comedian at the time was a fluent Russian-speaking drag queen. For monolingual divas like me, foreign languag…

Article about a Canadian Tim Hortons Manager who demands employees only speak English.

Rude Boss Forbids Employees From Speaking Non-English Languages

Linguistic diversity is something that is not always praised in the workplace. Being bilingual is often seen as a boon for white-collar workers who know languages with reputations of being cosmopolitan or good to know for business. On the flip side, bilingual service workers tend to be perceived as being less intelligent when speaking in their native language.

Proofreader Offers Useful Mnemonic Devices for Demystifying Words That Are Confusingly Similar

Bear with me, but does one bear it all or bare it all? And speaking of bears, if a bear pays me a compliment, can I complement his compliment with a compliment? Or would that negatively affect the intended effect? The English language is full of cruel tricks. There are many examples of English words that have totally different meanings and yet are nearly the same, sometimes only distinguished by a single letter. Proofreader @chronicleflask recently tried to demystify the English language in an…

Revelatory Thread Inspires Lightbulb Moments About Where Words And Phrases Actually Come From

If there’s one thing we can all agree on from years of speaking, reading and writing, it’s that the English language seems to operate in the most mysterious of ways. Between all the archaic grammatical rules and words that are a mishmash of several other different tongues, it’s a wonder non-native speakers manage to understand what we’re saying half of the time. As well as this, it means that we often don’t fully understand where the phrases we use originally come from. It is a topic which has …
