  2. Lets talk about languages

    @EnsignExpendable I've never gotten a solid idea on how the ы letter is pronounced in Russian, is it like a "yi" or the same as и?
  3. Terror Attacks and Active Shooter Events Thread

    According to my Latin teacher, the Las Vegas shooter volunteered in college to be a subject for MK-ultra experiments, finishing the tirade by saying, "what a dope".

    Clearly we just need to know whether the students can understand Rick and Morty to determine if they are part if the underclass.

  6. Railguns

    I suppose I don't really understand the electromagnetism involved in this, I understand that there is one positively charged and one negatively charged rail on either side of the barrel, and that there is an electrical current running through them and the projectile housing, but how does this propel the missile?

    yeah...
  8. True, but he did mostly the same process as that for vodka, but for a pretty simple deviation to make good ol' yeast-feed.

  14. Lets talk about languages

    Since I've been studying Latin in school and also Russian in my free time, I've been noticing some curious patterns regarding the inflections of each. The verb conjugation endings are nearly identical between the two, but noun declension is way, way different. To show: Russian 1st conjugation verb endings: Latin: Singular Plural Singular Plural -yu -yem -o -amus -yesh -yetye -as -atis -yet -yut -at -ant But if we look at nouns, it's totally different. For starters, Russian has an extra case compared to Latin, the instrumental, used when something is an instrument in an action. In Latin this would just be another use for the accusative. Russian 1st declension noun endings: Latin: Singular Plural Singular Plural Nominative -a -i -a -ae Genitive -i (noun stem) -ae -arum Dative -ye -am -ae -is Accusative -u -i -am -as Prepositional -ye -akh -a -is Instrumental -oi -ami I can see how they would be somewhat similar, both being Indo-European languages, but why one part of speech would be inflected so similarly, but the other so differently. Also, question for better Russian-speakers than me: How, in speech, are Й and И distinguished?
