Jill, Derick, Israel: Back In Normal Murica (For Now) - Part 20

I suppose the Duggars view this grabbing-and-kissing-the-bridesmaid/wife as a fun and cute new tradition. I actually don't blame Derick for doing it, as I imagine it is planned and expected, although I wish he would refuse on the grounds of 'it looks stupid'.  Poor Josh apparently is no longer allowed to participate in this hilarity. 

I think it was tradition from the moment JB and Meechelle posted the snogging selfie after the Jessa/Bin wedding.

Scene stealing most definitely runs in the family (including the ones that marry in).

It's Schrodinger's Uterus! A Duggar (or any fundy really) can be considered to be both pregnant and not pregnant simultaneously until a pregnancy is actually announced.

I have 3 cats.  The third was unplanned, but she is wonderfully sweet and a blessing to our home.  I always thought 3 was too many cats, but I am glad I trusted God with my clowder size.  Even though

I have three shirts right now: One says "Bun in the Oven" Another says "I'm Hungry" up top and "Me Too" on the bump And the third, and most appropriate, says "Pregasaurus Rex" with a pr

@foreign fundie, what I can't figure out in the Bob Jones 2nd grade math book is why the girl would give the clerk $9.50 when the total is $9.25.  It's not like 50 cent pieces are commonplace.  The girl probably had nine dollars and a quarter.

Also, why is there a tiger in the next picture when the hut looks like it's in Africa? Tigers don't live in Africa.

Semantics.  It's the indoctrination that counts not the facts.

 

And Derrick is just as tacky as JB.  I don't see him growing up anytime soon.  What is that acronym they always tout?  J.O.Y.  Jebus first.  Others second.  Yourself last.  If only that were reflected in their actions.

Saw this on Facebook and found it very amusing!

Laughed my head off and told my husband and he laughed too. He then reminded me of the time our daughter ran around the playground screaming something that could be translated as "Peekaboo satan!" She meant "Peekaboo magpie" but the Swedish words for "the magpie" is "skatan" and she couldn't say that so it turned into "satan" which is the same word in Swedish. She would often yell "satan" while sitting in her stroller too because she has always had a thing for birds in the crow family. Jackdaws are her favorite.

Speaking of bad grammar, I have a friend on Facebook who was so happy that her boyfriend purposed to her. I nearly had kittens! How in the world do you not know that the word is proposed? :kitty-cussing:

One of my all-time favorite pro hockey players is Miroslav Satan who played for the Buffalo Sabres among other NHL teams.  It was pretty cool to see a jersey with Satan on the back roaring down the ice. He shoots! He scores!

Must be the day for it. We were watching a (normally great) favourite documentary series earlier. They had a guest historian discussing methods of getting the engine of a particular tractor going. The 'expert' actually uttered: "...and to make it easier, you could add a little of that inflammable liquid..."

Are you talking about the use of the word 'inflammable'?

'Inflammable' means the same thing as 'flammable' (see here, for instance: https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/inflammable).

Cool. That's my something learnt for today. I wonder when that came to be (not a bother, I'll research in my own time rather than drift too much - word history fascinates me). I grew up with a clear and definite distinction between the two - including the bit of fire training, so it sounded weird to me.

On the plus side, you've restored my faith in my favourite documentary series now - I had come away from it irked a little over that. Now you've shown me that, it's all cool again. Thanks for that!

That always caused me to giggle too. Hockey certainly has some interesting names but that's the top one I think.

That type of mistake comes from exclusively auditory learning, which is my polite way of saying people do not read. If you think about it, many of the routine mistakes we see are based on (not based off! not based around! just based on!) how someone heard a word. They're mimicking sounds when writing them.

I'm also fussy about the use of that instead of who. I taught my kids in demanding fashion, IT'S PEOPLE WHO, AND THINGS THAT!! I know saying "people that" is acceptable, but not by me. It hurt to type it just now. Also, I'm a bit demanding about who/whom, and which/that, but more forgiving on those points.

I am very in to grammar and it being used properly at all times. Reading Jill's posts makes me rather unsettled. 

So using two words for "into" was just a typo? Good.

First time poster- longtime lurker. I just have to weigh in on the grammar annoyances. The one that annoys me the most is people mixing up breath and breathe, don't know why but it makes me see red!

I get upset with CLOTHES and CLOTHS.

I've seen CLOSE used for CLOTHES.  The use of the wrong word grates on me, too.  Not all typos bother me, though.  My fingers often defy my brain, so I'm more forgiving of mistakes such as the one @patsymae pointed out.  Now, if those mistakes appeared in a paper, news source, or anything that should have been edited, well, that's not easy to ignore.

No she's definitely a heathen, living with her now husband outside of marriage.

Typos in forums don't bother me; I also type fast, use mostly the phone or iPad and often don't catch autocorrect.  Also don't care about grammatical errors in conversational usage. And I'm a copy editor

This was one we were talking about while we waited to be seated at a restaurant this evening.  There is this store that does custom embroidery called EmbroidMe.  It's not EmbroiderMe, but EmbroidMe.  That just strikes my daughter, my husband and myself as really, really stupid sounding and looking.  The other is a local florist who did the flowers at my daughter's wedding 10 years ago.  It's A Arrangement, not An Arrangement. The shop does great work, but their name grates on my daughter's last nerve.

No wonder he plays football. He probably was teased mercilessly and  learned to tackle the shit out of people to get them to shut up.

What I love about this ad for Dillard's Department Store is that it makes the same mistake not just once, but twice!

I only saw the one mistake. Where was the second one? (I am falling asleep so it is probably super obvious...ha!)

I should have been more clear. I wasn't snarking on you, but using that as an example.  I didn't notice it until you pointed it out, which is why I could never be a good editor.

I've seen one EmbroidMe in my life and it drove me nuts too.  Maybe they were trying to rhyme with 'embroidery'.  If that is what they were going for, I can somewhat give them a pass.  A Arrangement is inexcusable.

Grammar nazi make me a bit nervous, as a horrific speller and even worse typer I often make these mistakes. My biggest mistake isn't that I don't know the difference between the two it's just that I cannot spell the words, defiantly and definitely (and yes I had to google these to spell them properly) even to the point of allowing auto correct to fix them.

I, like Trump, have the best words, I know all the words, I just can't spell them.

      My grandmother came from a town in Missouri of (now) population ~14,500 and 8 Baptist churches.  Not counting all the other denominations, that's just the Baptists.  
      MY grandfather came from Drimoleauge, Ireland which has a current population of ~450 people (not a typo) and 1 church and 5 pubs.  
      If I get a time machine take a wild guess which ancestors I'm going back to visit?  I'm not social, don't enjoy bars, and prefer to imbibe at home but sitting in a pub has to be better than being Godbothered to death by people pretending they don't drink.  
      Fun unrelated fact - Martin Luther spent so much time on the toilet he had a desk built so he could work there, and would take meetings while actively pooping.   He also wrote letters to people with vivid descriptions of his poops.   That should make everyone feel a little better about their work place and emails.

      Dear FJ ladies of a certain age.  Did you know that joint pain can appear/increase with perimenopause and menopause?  No?  Me neither till my rheumatologist told me yesterday.  It's all down to the fall in (o)estrogen. 
      Looking online, it'll either settle down as your hormones adapt to their new levels OR you're stuck with it!  I don't fancy needing NSAIDs for the rest of my life.

      This evening a biker dude went out of his way to follow my car into a retail store's parking lot to lecture me on - get this - braking when the light turned yellow. I had been going the speed limit and it was by no means the shortest stop I've ever made. He condescendingly told me that next time I should hit the gas because people like him could "go splat" into my car. Really dude?!? If you're going to drive any vehicle, especially a motorcycle, actually learn to drive it and don't effing tailgate me when I'm going the speed limit. And if you did rear-end me, guess whose fault it would be? Certainly not the person who was obeying the law.
      Also, I hate living in a society where I have to say this, but I am soooo thankful my male coworker was with me. The biker stopped his bike right behind my car when I parked and wouldn't move it until his lecture was over. If I had been alone I would have been terrified.

      Happens every single year.
      I am out of sorts, missing my dad, crying and needing to talk about him and sometime later in the day I realize it's his birthday.  
      Today.  I always chalk it up to being around Father's Day and all the ads and such, but so weird like I have an subconscious calendar for sadness that never fails to send me a reminder.
      Was listening to this on the way to work this am thinking of him.  I know it's supposed to be about a relationship, but to me it just speaks to dead parents. 
      Happy Birthday, Daddy.  It's another shitty fucking day without you.

      I hear ravens in the woods almost every day, & it makes me happy. Despite seeing pics of both crows & ravens (in the lame attempt to learn how to visually distinguish them from each other), I'm still having a helluva time with this. Maybe a local nature center can help. Hmmm. 🤔
