Randomness

Post by FirebirdNC » Sat Sep 28, 2013 3:19 am

Met a very nice deaf couple today. I learned how to sign "thank you have a nice day". I was admiring the beautiful nail polish she had on and it occurred to me, is getting a manicure like putting on your make up for someone who talks with their hands? I mean when you are speaking to someone with hearing you are focusing on their face so we tend to try and make that part prettier. There that is my random thought for the day. Feel free to comment or leave your own random thought.

We have a profoundly deaf student at college. She comes with her own signer who stands at the front of the class. No matter whose class she is in, year after year, all the teachers report that every student watches the signer rather than them. I wonder how many of them are learning BSL along with English.

Anyway, my thought is that one of the reasons the world's in the mess it's in is that we're no longer allowed to refer to women collectively as 'crumpet'. As in 'Phwoar. Look at the crumpet in here'. It's PC gone mad.

It's about time you reviewed the board and didn't leave my randomness all out here by it's lonesome. I do not object to being called a crumpet as it implies I am tasty and good for breakfast lol.

My father would refer to a young but overweight girl as a "heifer." Never meant to be flattering.

It would be BSL if it was Rors situation at his college.

As an aside on this it sucks that ASL and BSL are different enough that you would need to learn both if you wanted to travel to either other country. Props to ASL for having an alphabet that can be done on one hand.

Which leaves the other hand free for tea or whatever else you usually do with one hand.

Random thought of the day: In our time, the internet and electronic devices are making it so people are more bubbled off from each other. At the same time however, the economy has forced more and more of the populous to relieve on each other and cohabitate in larger groups to survive. Universal balancing act or just funny happenstance.

So if Rorschach pisses on me, I can blame tech and the economy for this moment? Awesome.

No you can blame that on Rors totally wanting to pee on you.

Oh goodness no. I get the stage fright badly enough when people aren't lying expectantly in my bath with an erection.

If they have an erection while you're near them, they're lying already.

Wombat's faeces are cube shape. And female turkeys don't need a man or artificial insemination to reproduce. Think of that when you have turkey next time.

This has been another Useless Fact™.
