  • Why do women get completely freaked out talking about age/aging?

    Best answer: This ties in with lodestar. The sexual double standard. What makes a man attractive? Ambition, aggression and assertiveness.

    Best answer: This ties in with lodestar. The sexual double standard. What makes a man attractive? Ambition, aggression and assertiveness. All things that get better with age(the ambition gets better by parleying the male into a successful career/position) What makes a woman attractive? Beauty, fertility. Women become "less" attractive over time from sagging cheeks, wrinkles, losing perkiness. When these things begin to happen, the woman is drawing closer and closer to not being able to produce offspring-thus woman are genetically programmed to deny their age and signs of their aging, as it is like striking the last chime on their biological clock. A man can produce fertile sperm(generally) until the day he dies, most women have 35 years, tops, of fertility(usually the 13-50 range), and because our society views it as wrong to produce children when first sexually mature, then you can cut that time down to around 16-50, and then take into account all of the risks associated with later years reproduction and you know have a working range of around 16-35, which is only 19 years. Given the average woman lives 78 years, she has less than a quarter of her life to reproduce, and the more she ages the less time she has.

  • What's the difference between a language, dialect, accent and lingo?

    Best answer: Language is a large vocabulary of words that are drastically different in sound, intonation and meaning. Phonemes vary wildly from one language to another. A dialect is when you take one language and break it into smaller parts, but nearly everyone who speaks different dialects can usually all communicate with each other via universals... show more
    Best answer: Language is a large vocabulary of words that are drastically different in sound, intonation and meaning. Phonemes vary wildly from one language to another. A dialect is when you take one language and break it into smaller parts, but nearly everyone who speaks different dialects can usually all communicate with each other via universals in their language- Mandarin/Cantonese and Japanese/Korean to a lesser extent. Also, Barcelonan Spanish vs. Mexican Spanish are also dialects, in addition to British English, American English and Australian English. An accent is just a slight variation in the pronunciation of words, most commonly because of differing locations of origin(midwest vs. northeast) or being born with a first native language and pronouncing your second language "funny" because of using the same rules of pronunciation(Mexicans pronouncing "Jeff" as "Heff"), in addition to the more/less frequent use of words, or the use of one word in exclusion of the other(soda vs. pop). Southern accent, New York accent, Boston accent, North Dakota accent. Lingo is just slang-I guess this is more where soda vs. pop vs. tonic vs. soft drink goes, but lingo would more fit in with "made-up" words or phrases used in certain areas. Asking for a hot sally in one neighborhood or another may mean you're ordering a coffee or looking for a prostitute.

    Best answer: there are a lot of ways to word this sentence. "I had a final exam tomorrow, but it got delayed" "My final exam tomorrow is delayed" "I was supposed to have a final exam tomorrow, but it's delayed". Depends on the context, really. If you're just making the statement on it's own, you could just say "Tomorrow's exam got delayed" If someone is asking you what you're doing tomorrow, you would say "I had a final exam tomorrow, but it got delayed". How you wrote it would get your meaning across, but on paper there would be a few comma's in there-Tomorrow, I HAVE a final exam, but it was delayed. English seems to be a difficult language for others because the word order can be switched around so frequently with the right modifiers in place and still mean exactly the same thing. Most people wouldn't specify it was a final exam usually because the word "exam" itself carries the connotation of being of major importance. I understand in other countries you would call any "examination of material" an exam, but at least in America we distinguish between a "test" and an "exam". A test is more akin to a quiz-it's usually done once every chapter/every week/at random. To us an exam covers a longer period of time-all the material in a month, or a section of the book, or every quarter/semester. If it's frequent, it's a test If it's infrequent and covers a lot of material, it's an exam. The distinction and implication being that tests are easy because there is far less material to cover and will take less time, but an exam is more difficult because it covers a wide range of material and generally takes longer(because there are usually more questions).

    Best answer: I would say "We have reached our loan limit utilizing two banks as sources." Or "Our loan limit has been reached do to dual-sourcing." This is actually American English more than British or Australian English, but we would never use the word "double" in that context. We would either say "two" of something, or say "dual" or "duo-", "twin" or the generic pluralizer "multiple". Improperly we would say "few", "couple", or "lots" or "some".

    Best answer: I choose to simply live out the life I have before me. Reliving life isn't really going to be any good as the future possibilities of your "new" choices could be drastically worse than what life is like now based on choices made in the past, and even if you wanted to have an approximate carbon copy you probably wouldn't make every decision in the exact same way the subsequent trips around, and would be left in the world of the future unknown. Ending my life doesn't sound like anything I'd want to do as there's no logical reason for me to cut short what little bit of time I have in existence. I do not fear death. It's laughable that a person who adheres to a religion based purely on behaving themselves to get eternal rewards in a fictional "afterlife" is accusing anyone of being afraid of accountability. If anything, I would say that most christian interpretations of their own dogma lead to the exact opposite of accountability. No matter what you do in life, if you accept jesus christ as your savior you will be accepted into heaven and live an eternal life with him and his glorious father in heaven. That whole "jesus is the path to forgiveness" and "jesus dying for our sins" thing is just a cop-out for doing whatever you want until you decide it's time to "atone" for your "sins". At least, that's what I gleaned from nine years of catholic school, an apostolic father, and many useless pamphlets handed to me by kindly old gentleman across the street from my public high school.

    Best answer: Only if realistic violence is depicted in an unrealistic way(say, not showing pain, suffering, dismemberment or death), as some children will not learn to associate the violence(cause) as causing harm(effect). This really only applies to children up to the age of 4 however, as after that they seem to take on the understanding that violence = pain from their own personal experiences(mostly caused by accidental self-injury). Cartoon violence obviously would not affect the child's developmental understanding as it is obvious to them that cartoons look drastically different then real life, and thus would make the connection that falling off a cliff and not being harmed is wholly unrealistic. Furthermore, some studies suggest that spanking or smacking a child teaches them that it's ok for a bigger person to harm a littler person in response to the bigger person becoming upset. While I don't necessarily agree that spanking a child or smacking their hands for an inappropriate(i.e. one that has been clearly defined as being not ok to do) behavior doesn't lead to the development of a bully complex, there are many more "qualified" people who have found that enough of their sample group was influenced negatively by physical punishment from parents that they deemed it noteworthy. I've been closely surrounded by children(my own, my cousins and the offspring of my close personal friends) to know that some kids are more likely to be violent than others regardless of upbringing-whether through media influence, forms of parental punishment used, and/or the violent/nonviolent acts performed by their parents/caregivers and observed by the child firsthand. That even includes observation of other children being spanked, talked to, coddled, isolated or what have you, and obviously those actions being performed on them. I had parents who argued vehemently, threw stuff at each other, spanked me and my sis, struck us with various objects and had a ton of violent media throughout my entire remembered life, and I am a very nonviolent person, but definitely capable of acting aggressively towards others in the appropriate situations. People are all unique, considering other friends with similar experiences to mine are more violent people than I, and some are even more docile than me.

At the same time look at how many men get screwed over in the marriage/children/divorce department. When my husband mentioned it i told him how it made me feel and why he would ask it. He explained that he doesnt want to go to court and have to give up everything to me but he would still take care of me and his children. In the end we never signed a pre-nup. He realized that it hurt me alot to pretty much say "our marriage is doomed i am saving my ***." Hopefully this helps. It is very opinionated and i am a stay at home mom so it may seem horrible or "money hungry" like to some men out there. Have you tried to tell him how you feel? Good luck!

    Best answer: No such thing as "best" grammar, and not a single language is full of people who speak well... except maybe that African bush tribe that speaks in clicks and pops-I can't imagine there are many ways to speak that improperly once you know it. Language is an ever-growing body of knowledge and symbolism, and the more we interact with others who speak a different language, the closer those languages come to each other. So, really, there's no such thing. Most proficient(or at least most widely understood) is the dry, precise Ohio dialect of American English is probably up there. It's the dialect news anchors are trained to mimic, and most hollywood actors are also trained to mimic it as well. Mandarin is the most widely spoken language(per capita), but you're more likely to find a random person in the world who understands English, whereas those who understand Mandarin Chinese are in Asian countries or in areas with a heavy Chinese immigrant population.

Hell, up until a few weeks ago I qualified for WIC assistance and I make $45K/year. This republican boogeyman of "welfare recipients abusing the system" are almost all relegated to large urban centers with abjectly disproportionate poverty rates, such as Detroit, New York, Los Angeles, etc., and the only people that should stop exploiting the system are drug dealers who make $100k+/year and still collect food stamps and live in government subsidized housing. Just because you qualify for welfare(which I'll go out on a limb and assume that you do too if you're single, no kids and make less than $28k/year), doesn't mean you HAVE to collect it.
