Filmed in stark black and white, located in a setting of grim urban steel, steeped in machine aesthetic, driven by a kinetic style and empowered by a grinding metallic soundtrack, it draws on nightmarish horror and generates heavy fetishcore themes.

i think it's a good shibboleth. if someone uses the word "quantum" and they don't have at least a bsc in physics you can safely ignore everything they say

word count of a language doesn't mean much. the OED contains about 170,000 words and 50,000 anachronisms. an average adult knows about 15,000 words. the only way you get to 1 million is by taking every form of jargon ever invented and throwing it in a dictionary along with every word that's ever been used in any document ever. studies show a foreign speaker only needs to learn about 3,000 words to attain 95% reading comprehension of everyday writing anyway.

for comparison, the official dictionary of the Real Academia Espaola contains about 85,000 words and a native speaker knows about 10,000. a foreign speaker needs to learn about 1,500 to attain 90% comprehension.

an average chinese knows maybe 5,000 characters. the chinese government defines functional literacy at knowing 2,000 characters and newspapers use about 1,700 characters. there are 45,000 characters in the official dictionary but 75% of them haven't been used in 5000 years.
1500 spanish words seems like an achievable goal. where do statistics like this come from?

Another possibility is that using a sports analogy, the freelance journalist is seen as a "second string" whereas the staff journalist positions are more of the "first string". This in turn comes from music, where the first string is the premiere violin in the orchestra, the second string is the next most talented player and so on.

Welcome to the Neighborhood (July 10, 2005)
An ABC reality show that was canceled before airing as its subject matter "risked fostering prejudice". The series had a conservative white neighborhood choosing their new neighbors from a group of families that were black, Hispanic, and Asian; two gay white men raising an adopted black child; a couple covered in tattoos and piercings; a couple who met at the wife's initiation as a witch; and a poor white family.
i remember this being a moderately big deal at the time, since it was filmed in an austin suburb.

Namio Harukawa (春川 ナミオ Harukawa Namio?, born in 1947, in Osaka Prefecture, Japan) is a Japanese artist known for his realistic femdom erotica drawings. He created around one thousand unique drawings.[1] Harukawa's artwork features voluptuous women with large breasts, wide hips, round buttocks and thick legs overpowering and humiliating smaller men. The women in Harukawa's drawings are typically Asian or European in appearance. Harukawa's women usually have an aloof look on their faces and often are doing everyday activities such as smoking or drinking a cup of tea. By far the most common Harukawa theme is female domination by facesitting for cunnilingus and/or anilingus. His work also includes smothering with buttocks or breasts, bondage, collaring, whipping (usually with a crop), golden showers and scatophilia. Note that more than the half of the "facesitting and "oral sex" poses are in fact "mouth cupping" on the vulva or anus allowing the women to let their urine or feces go directly in the sub/slaves mouth. The men in Harukawa's art may be used as human furniture in the form of a seat or swing. Some artwork by Harukawa has a cuckoldry theme.

Punchy, Hawaiian Punch's mascot[edit]

In 1962, the Atherton-Privett ad agency created a 20-second commercial to advertise Hawaiian Punch drink. The commercial was produced by John Urie and Associates, Jean Guy Jacques was the director. Bob Guidi and John Urie designed the two characters, Punchy and Oaf. Ross Martin did Punchy's voice, "Hey! How 'bout a nice Hawaiian Punch?" and John Urie did Oaf's line, "Sure". Rod Scribner, animated the commercials. Sam Cornell also worked on the later versions. Oaf never learned to say "No" and he was always pounded to the ground. The commercial ended with Punchy leaning on a can of Hawaiian Punch, saying, "Wasn't that a nice commercial?" The commercial won many awards. After airing in February 1962 on THE TONIGHT SHOW with Jack Paar, the Punchy commercial was so special that Jack Paar said "Let's play that again... the second time is free."
