Well, there's a very large and prosperous nation of Spelling Barbarians south of our border who flout all the rules of decency, ya know.

A bit more than a peeve but having to say goodbye to a furball when you know it's the right thing but the worst decision to have to make.  He has gone to chase balls in the clouds on a walk with Ki no

I don't think that's a metaphor, but whether or not it is, I think you could have found a better way to express yourself. 

Back when I was a noob, we didn't HAVE no fancy HUDs.  We just filled up our inventories with hundreds o' texture pants and tops with diffr'nt colors.  You youngsters are spoiled. And we walked t

One of my biggest pet peeves of today (9-12-2020):

Since I work in the fast food/retail industry, I will say that some people are hella rude towards us workers. If people are just not one bit considerate towards the workers (such as myself), it kinda ticks me off cause people just do not seem to have the common kindness that they should.

Like many others, a wall of text (where the poster seems to forget what a paragraph break is) can be difficult to read.

Worse is when that wall of text doesn't even have much in the way of proper capitalization or punctuation marks.  It does not take me very many words into that type of posting for me to just skip it all.

Agreed in some circumstances. If people are just typing short sentences and don't want complete proper capitalization or marks, I get that.

But YES to the wall of text. It's just annoying LOL!

Some of us just have a whole lot that is really interesting to say! My own attitude is that if you choose to skip my golden words and lustrous thoughts, then you're the loser for it, not me!

Common kindness in general seems to have gone by the wayside for many over the last decade or so....... at least here in the US, IMO.

Along this line, I also never understood people that would take a cooking problem out on the waiter/waitress at a restaurant.  The server is not the one that messed up the cooking of the food.  One should not take that out on the server, nor should one reduce their tip for the server based on the cooking of the meal.

Scyll, you'll laugh at me, but I was actually trying to read the Latin. I took it in highschool for three years, but so much is gone, I can't make sense of it anymore!!! Or were these random words.? I couldn't pick up on an actual sentence..

They are real words, but the text is mostly gibberish. I grabbed it from a Lorem Ipsem generator. Lorem ipsem was originally a passage of prose from an obscure work by Cicero that was used as "dummy text" by printers trying to determine, among other things, how much text would fit onto a page, formatting, how to lay out a book and its gatherings for printing, and so on. It's still used today.

I knew they were real words, but I couldn't follow any sort of meaning in a sentence. And it makes me feel better knowing that there was no meaning in random words. I haven't forgotten as much as I thought!!!

Translation (according to Google) - total nonsense:

Hungarian translations also show up as total nonsense. So I don't trust google translator very much. Both English and Hungarian were my first languages. i do understand your point though. There is always some sort of continuity.

Well, when I am translating a post here on the forums, I typically paste the foreign text into a couple of translators to give me the best chance of understanding it.  A majority of the time, Google does as well as any other translator.

In this case, she truly did type nonsense, so that is what translated.

Some of us are really interesting! My own attitude is that if you choose to skip my golden words and beautiful ideas, then you are its failure, not me! After all, Dominal Attle can easily extricate himself after sitting down. There is neither an author nor a porch dignissim Aenean. Tomorrow carrot pot bow and arrow. Vivamus ac hendrerit neque. Performance is not a football field. Use pressure as a platform before the ship tremor layer. Duis consectetur, in front of the protein, with large horse teeth, starting from the pain of life, the consectetur is close to the superior vulputate. Before the start of the first basketball game, they were heartbroken and given clinical care. The plugs are a lot ugly, but they will need rods. Microwave can be used for any clinical or yeast. Proin fringilla nulla is not soft and has arrows. The current layer is nibh. However, Banana Lasignia. The afternoon is the casino or the crowd. Quisque ut interdum Tortor, it is not a motor vehicle. The Vivamus porttitor has a password and has been disinfected. Now, this is an element that developer Laoreet drinks. Developers are not afraid, while players need pots and hardware. But, except for the arches or pillows you raised. Morbi nulla leo, Accumsan eget varius, etc., rutrum id nisi. Pepper Smile is now suitable for Laoreet's clinical needs for targeted alcohol. Now is the time. Fusce vitae augue dapibus, aliquet massa amet, imperdiet nibh. Resume investment elements. Monitoring and troubleshooting are more important than mourning peppers. Fusce non ligula enim. Football has now become the Airline Valley. Football salad, bananas may trigger the gate of free investment. But at that time nutritious EU salad. For developers even smiling, developers can reduce performance. Once played clinical football. Mauris euismod, risus nec pellentesque hendrerit, augue elit tristique nulla, eget tincidunt quam urna are not to be missed. Fusce mollis metus vitae tincidunt sollicitudin. Someone in Nora said an integer lake, but did not mention it. smart phone. Life is without euiod in Dubai. Author of the great book of curses. However, it is worried that makeup can only extract elements. This is not just a football sauce casino. Jasmine sapien paid a lot for the funeral at the time, but he has paid a lot for it before. Until now, sometimes there is no lake. Laoreet does homework and any makeup on weekends. It was not until the non-laoreet arcu that pharetra sapien was obtained. Bean larvae have a Leo life.

I think it works better if you translate it into Chinese then into English.

You're not a burden here, at all.

I think Lorem Ipsum was my Latin teacher in my senior year in high school.  He had us translate all sorts of useful text into Latin as entries for a regional Latin Club contest (yes, there were such things when I was in high school) .  I could have used a generator like that, if it had been available at the time.  The result would have been an improvement on my recipe for a Caesar salad, which did not win a prize.
