It's an old story: http://www.snopes.com/college/risque/daughter.asp

The picture is of The Mirror, a British tabloid reporting a story from Zimbabwe, so probably take it with a grain of salt.

Nicknames for Margaret: Peggy, Maggie, Marge, Margo, Meg, Mamie, Molly, Greta, Midge, Madge, to name a few. And Maisie.

From what I understand, it's a holdover from when everyone had saints' names and everyone named their kids after themselves (this used to be common for women as well). They just came up with a fuckton of nicknames in order to differentiate between all the kids in the village who had the same name. Like kids now referring to kids in their class as, say, Sara S. and Sarah L.

Yeah as far as I know naming your kid after yourself is an English or royal thing. In Scandinavia you'd name your kids after the parents of the father & mother. The exact order was different in various areas.

One of my great3 grandfathers' name was Niels Christensen Dalsgaard. His first name was presumably after his fathers father or his mothers father, they were both named Niels; Christensen is "son of Christen" after his father; and Dalsgaard after the farm they lived on. Yet he also had an older brother with the exact same name. The pull of tradition was strong enough that the parents had to name their two firstborn sons after each of their fathers, even if they had the same name.

So they were called Big Niels & Li'l Niels.

My favourite story about that was in an English village years ago where they still kept the practice, and they ran into the same problem, two brothers named Evan. There were nicknames and such through the years, but it wasn't until they'd grown up and found careers that the village finally had a name for each of them. One became a vicar and the other became the town mortician, so they were called Evan Above and Evan Below.

Hah nice, that is too good to be true.

E: I almost forgot that on my mom's side, all the firstborn men are named Paul MacSomething Whatever. My granddad was called Paul, my uncle was called Mark (for "Mac," I'm told), until my uncle got married and had a son he named Paul MacSomething Whatever. Now my uncle is called Paul and my cousin is Mark. When my cousin has a son, everyone will start calling him Paul.

Nobody will get a majority. The arithmetic just isn't there. Based on my awareness of the figures, it's very likely that Labour could have gotten a majority, but the SNP surge has undercut that quite drastically. Nonetheless, they still have a good chance of being the biggest party next Friday, but they're looking at a minority government with support from Plaid (if they get anyone in) and possibly the DUP.

I know this isn't the thread, but can you in very few words describe the difference compared to the Danish system? Cause we have had maybe five majority governments ever, aside from them it's all been coalitions of a right or left spectrum of parties. Wouldnt it be kindof the same in Australia, then? To make actual legislation, they'd need to get some other parties on top of their own?

From the Norwegian newspaper Nordske Intelligenz-Sedler:



quote:

Christiania [now Oslo]. Last July 17 in the morning, a man hanged himself here in Agersgaden [street] in a little hay-loft, and in the afternoon thunder struck the same house in which the man hanged, whereby the thunder-ray not only split asunder several parts of both the roof and walls, but also tore off the cord in which he had hanged, so that he fell down. The occurrence is not only truthful, but also very remarkable. It is left to those knowledgeable of nature to judge further.

Still think this is totally plausible (I'm not joking). I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be able to tell the difference, personally, anyway.

Also I made this point when the same story was on Jezebel a couple days ago, and a dude tried to mansplain vaginas to me on the basis that his wife says he knows her vagina better than she does. Um, sure. That's believable.

Tbh it doesn't seem implausible that a dude dumb enough to use that as a qualification has a wife so deeply daft that he actually does know her vagina better than her. Who else would marry such a lovely wall of potatoes?

quote:

Dr Paul Booth of Keele University spotted the name ‘Roger Fuckebythenavele’ in the Chester county court plea rolls beginning on December 8, 1310. The man was being named three times part of a process to be outlawed, with the final mention coming on September 28, 1311.

Dr Booth believes that “this surname is presumably a nickname. I suggest it could either mean an actual attempt at copulation by an inexperienced youth, later reported by a rejected girlfriend, or an equivalent of the word ‘dimwit’ i.e. a man who might think that that was the correct way to go about it.”
