To people who say that I have good writing I'm really surprised. I have a feature on my computer which checks for misspelled words so I don't really make mistakes that often and I also read Reddit quiet a bit so I know how people write posts so I try to follow that structure. It's nothing really special. I also can easily look for words on the internet. I learned somewhere that it's good to not repeat words so I use this website: http://www.thesaurus.com/browse/synonym to make my text richer.

For some alternatives, here's a thesaurus.com page on synonyms for "savage". I'm partial to "turbulent" myself, but if you want to get really harsh you could go for "aboriginal".
JustNos can't compute or accept rejection. It means the person rejecting them is under the influence and control of someone else. Because everything is power and control.
She is saying he is under your power and control, since he's clearly not under hers. And that the target of your power and control tactics is... HERSELF.
Your goal is to cause HER difficulties, frustration, or pain.
> I want you to know that when someone gets mad at you, it is their way of trying to be in control of you.
Oh rly? How does that saying go? "When someone tells you who they are, believe them." She is telling you who SHE is here.
That is the nature of projection. When someone assumes other key players have the same motives, biases, tendencies, tactics, and beliefs as themselves, and assign those motives to the other players, what they are actually doing is revealing who THEY are.
See how this all comes back to her?
This letter is all "Me, me, me, me, meeeee."
Me me me, because I cared for my dying mother.
Me me me because I defended my child.
Me me me because that child wrote ME a poem for it!
(Notice she did not write HIM a comforting poem in this fantasy, HE wrote HER one, he comforted HER!)
Me me me because you couldn't possibly have your own authentic reasons for distancing yourself from meeeeee. It's because of that other woman and HER power and control that she is trying to direct AT ME.
Ugh. I could keep going but honestly it's making me feel a little sick and disoriented.
The word for this is Solipsism. It's when someone is so far gone beyond pride, or ego, or self centeredness that it's almost incomprehensible and maddening in it's eternally circular, infallibly self serving reasoning. Even when a Solipsistic person TRIES to make it about and FOR the other person, they can't. They are categorically unable to.
This actually makes sense.
Typing fierce in the Thesaurus gives us synonyms like terrible, frightening, horrible, and animal-like.
So, I can't say I disagree with this image.
Before dank became a meme word, it meant unpleasantly damp and cold. But yeah they could've used 100 better words.

10 better words to use
For the same reason that "God" didn't die out with the rest of the gods. By declaring itself The saurus, rather than just another saurus, the Thesaurus initiated a long term trend towards mono-dinosaurism. As societies integrated through increased trade and technology, the poly-dinoism worldview lost plausibility. The simpler conception of an all-powerful reference book of synonyms rapidly gained adherents up until the invention of the printing press (circa 1439), when it finally achieved ubiquity by replacing "dinosaur" with "obsolete."
or, better yet, don't differentiate between things like calm and mild; impish and naughty; rash and bold, since they're effectively the same thing.
It's not an "earlier" proposal. It's still on his website - that makes it a CURRENT proposal.
In case December is too long ago for you, here's one from May where he tries to pass it off a "just a suggestion". Browsing a thesaurus tells me that "suggestion" is synonym for "proposal".

Jesus Christ I thought reddit was going downhill fast but you really showed me up
Basically it makes a request to the corresponding URL for the word you search, in this case: "http://www.thesaurus.com/browse/[word]". For example, if you searched the word 'practical', it would make a request to the URL "http://www.thesaurus.com/browse/practical". Then it scans the returned HTML line by line, looking for specific keywords. When it finds a line of HTML containing synonyms, it parses that line and puts each synonym into a list, which gets passed to the code that creates the list of results.
One thing to note is that the desktop UI is a pain in the a** to parse, so I actually spoof a mobile browser in order to get more readable HTML. In the mobile version, the lines with the synonyms have a nice unique "class="result synstart"" at the beginning, with no excessive fancy HTML, so I just grab those lines and parse them.
To see what I mean by the returned HTML, go to that link for practical in Google Chrome, hit F12, and click the 'Elements' tab. Then, click the little square with the cursor in the top-left corner of that window, and click one of the words on the page. It will take you to the HTML for that word. That's what the app parses by scanning ALL of that HTML, line by line.
Trolls: Anyone I dislike
Your definition of the word pretty much boils down to that. And there's already a plethora of words for that (see http://www.thesaurus.com/browse/asshole?s=t for details)
If you want to call someone an asshole, call them an asshole. A troll is something else. I don't care why you think they're doing what they're doing, or even why they're actually doing what they're doing. Specifically what they are doing is what makes them a troll. By calling assholes trolls you're diluting the meaning of the word troll, and I find it to be a very useful word, so could you please fucking stop.
Hey, /u/thegreatgazoo . Just pointing out that the expression you're referencing is actually 'in dire straits'. Not discrediting, nor disrespecting, your post, at all - just mentioning this in case it benefits you in future.
Take care brother.
Tonight on Medieval 2: Total War: Jon massively overestimates travel times for the pope, fails to do basic addition and subtraction when looking at the French king's Authority (ironically claiming the game is "calculating wrong" and calling it "really annoying" while strangely not referring to his own failure to pay attention) and, as per usual, wildly exaggerates the strength of - and challenge provided by - the AI (e.g. when looking at the French fortress at Bordeaux, and when referring to the siege of Angers) as well as "feeling" like the enemy should have more troops without actually counting them. Meanwhile, fairly simple and straightforward concepts and mechanics in the game continue to be "confusing".
Good good, everything seems to be going according to the established order here.
There's that word again, scum. You know there are other insults out there right? Such a small vocabulary for a such an angry little man. Here, let me help you out: http://www.thesaurus.com/browse/scum
>Synonyms: architect, author, beginner, benefactor, builder, constructor, creator, designer, establisher, forebearer, framer, generator, initiator, institutor, inventor, maker, organizer, originator, patron, planner, prime mover
Yes, we really do, because already I can see that your conclusion is illogical. Saying that something doesn’t exist does not imply that it once existed but has now ceased to. It could just as easily mean that something never existed. Example:
> Me: Unicorns don’t exist.
> You (“paraphrasing” me): All the unicorns killed themselves.
In the context, that’s most likely what Trudeau is saying—not a core identity has died, but that it never existed.
Further, if what you really wanted to convey was the death or elimination of something, then “suicide” is a poor word to use, because it doesn’t simply mean death—it means taking one’s own life voluntarily and intentionally. “Suicide” isn’t even on this list of synonyms for “death”. Yet you chose to use the word twice.
So, I still think you’re editorializing, but if you really did intend to merely paraphrase, then paraphrase better.
I'm surprised why you think that proper writing requires intelligence and skill, I'm pretty sure anyone can write good, I simply use the tools in my computer.
I have a program which checks spelling, so I don't make spelling mistakes. I also use this website http://www.thesaurus.com/browse/synonym to make my text richer.
Super surprised that people are saying that my writing is good, I think it's really average but I just use tools.
Let's see if we can prax this out.
Finance talks about interest rates (Article from the Journal of Finance talking about interest rates)
As we learned yesterday, finance is all evil (/r/badeconomics discussion)
Thus, interest rates are evil.
Evil is a synonym for bad (Best source, thesaurus.com)
Therefore, interest rates are bad.
a structure built to support the lateral pressure of an arch or span, e.g., at the ends of a bridge.
the process of supporting something with an abutment.
a point at which something abuts against something else.
Ok, so its an architecture thing. Yes, I had to look it up
Then I got the feeling that this bitch has no actual intelligence and obviously didn't know what it means. So I decided to put in a word that makes sense and then go to thesaurus.com.
The word I chose was "support"..

They mean the same damn thing, Derek.
You can lookup the reference word in Thesaurus. Results are sorted by similarity to the word. You can look up if your query word is in there and if there are closer words above it.
On a PC, finding fifthglyphs in your writing is just a Ctrl+F away, so you can fix any slip-ups you might bring about.
A synonym-listing tool such as th–saurus.com can aid you a fair bit. If you want to put a word in your writing, but it contains a fifthglyph, just look for a synonym and do a substitution if you can.
Sadly, with our Anglo-Saxon lingo, you'll find a lot of things difficult to talk about at all without using any off-limits words, notwithstanding synonym substitution. Past stuff is tricky all around, as most action words contain a fifthglyph in past conjugation. You can usually find a workaround though, such as "did go" as a substitution for "w–nt", although this particular construction may look too clunky for normal writing.
Most importantly, stay vigilant!
Words are never used simply.

I'll just leave this here. As you were.
As much as I enjoy the game, I agree. Seems like they pulled the word out of the thesaurus.
Heroes... nope, taken by Heroes of the Storm.
Defenders... nah, too close to Defense of the Ancients
Guardians of Middle Earth (but nobody remembers that)
Conquistador... nobody will spell it right

Flash takes 1 because he can donate speed, I'm pretty sure. Speed force can probably help with 2, as well. I don't know enough about comics to comment on 3.
My favorite is the bonus round. They obviously have to use a turtle pun with their own name, but thesaurus.com only has like eight words meaning turtle. Using http://www.thesaurus.com/browse/turtle, flash has to go with "LeatherFlash," which isn't very good, but quicksilver is stuck with "QuickCooter," so the Flash is the better of the two, somehow.
I would use "transcribed." The verb "transcribe" has essentially the same meaning as "transcripted," but "transcript" is more accepted as a noun than a verb. So, your example would say, "the following has been transcribed by the (Radio Station Name)."
Hope that helps!
Edit: here is a link to a definition for "transcribe" if you wanted to check!
Good argument to use Stun instead of Freeze. Still, stun sounds too pokemon to me. Looked for some synonyms here: http://www.thesaurus.com/browse/stun. Personally I like 'Flabbergast' most, as in 'Flabbergast target creature'. :D
Feel free to replace 'harass' with any of the following synonyms: badger, bother, nag, disturb, or pester...Here's a full list, if you'd like more options to choose from.
I personally think you're letting some random ass comment from some random ass person affect you for no good reason. Shit happens, and he's still entitled to his opinion, even if it doesn't make you happy.
I honestly don't understand why we need another word when the english language already has one that fits perfectly? Honestly, I don't get it, but if it makes you happy we can invent a new word for it right now if you'd like. What would you suggest? It has to convey the fact that she's superficially whoring out her body on cam on a gaming site for money though, so nothing like "fucking asshole".

Antonyms: befriended, loved, unlonely
Well not a single thing there is related to the definition of indefensible. However, use literally any of these synonyms for "immutable" and you'll have something near an acceptable use of a word.
I don't know how seals go about doing all of those things that I listed. Therefor, I dunno what this guy is up to. Is this his mating dance? Is it his "I'm gonna fuck up your shit" dance? Or is it just how seals check stuff out, like when dogs sniff and snakes lick the air?

If that is true, it is a zero sum game. Here are the facts presented to me. Someone says one thing, and you say that means another.
"patient and less absolute." = police more dead.
So, if we want less police dead, we simply want the police to be more (Antonyms for patient) agitated, loud, rough, troubled, violent. (http://www.thesaurus.com/browse/patient).
I am categorically against agitated, loud, rough, troubled, violent police. So I guess I do want more police dead.
However, I honestly thing we can have the police be more patient and less absolute, and still alive. It is possible to have both!!!!
Well, you should probably use a thesaurus instead of a dictionary, for starters. From thesaurus.com:
I'd recommend going to the webpage above if it isn't in that list, as there are related terms and their synonyms listed there as well.
I'm guessing he read it in a Lovecraft inspired vidya, had to look it up, and remembered it. Or he just typed "old fashioned synonym" in google and picked the one that sounded most obscure:
Out of the words that describe a group of three people (or people and things), "trio" is likely the best choice as a single noun. It's often associated with musical groups or musical compositions, however. A better option may be to say something like "group of three" or "three-man group/organisation/committee/squad/etc".
Do you have any clues? Like a word it might sound like?
Might I suggest some names for your Spelljammer ship:
The Reverie which means “a dream, daydream or fantasy, usually a very pleasant one”.
The Idyll which means “a happy, peaceful, or picturesque episode or scene, typically an idealized or unsustainable one”.
The Elysium or The Arcadia or The Erehwon which all more or less mean “a bucolic paradise, either in the afterlife, the remembered past or in one’s fantasies”.
There are some good words here in this list of synonyms for Utopia: http://www.thesaurus.com/browse/utopia
> I've heard of wizards, witches, mages, warlocks, and sorcerers.
Here you go
> I'm sure there are more. Do they denote different abilities or powers.?
Sometimes. Sometimes not. In D&D there is a difference between Wizards (learned magic). Sorcerers (innate magic), and Warlocks (bestowed magic). It'd be impossible to go through literally every instance of magic use in all of fiction to denote all of the differences.
The pertinent question from Franken that Sessions responded to was:
>". . . if there is any evidence that anyone affiliated with the Trump campaign communicated with the Russian government in the course of this campaign, what will you do?"
The most common synonym for "In the course of" is "during," not "as a part of" or "as a surrogate of," which seems to be the synonymous meaning Sessions would have to be working under. He had time between testimony and the confirmation vote to go back and correct his testimony, and my understanding is that this has been done in the past, and he chose not to do this. Even if he misinterpreted the question, as he claims, it was a major fuck up to probably the most critical question he was asked. What he did then both raises the question about his competence acting as the head attorney of he US, and it sets a horrible example for all US citizens.
If you accept that his meeting with the Russian ambassador at the Republican National Convention was because of his Senate position on the Armed Services Committee, then you have to address why he used political funds rather than Senate travel funds to go there.
Great writing, and I know you're not here for an english lesson, but there are more words than "passionately," for future reference ;) a thesaurus is fucking handy as hell when writing porn. Though, I find it difficult to reference body parts too often... I mean, do you stick with one or two words for dick/pussy/tits/etc and risk sounding repetitive or do you cycle through all the ones you know and confuse the hell out of the reader? Tsk...
Anyway, thanks for writing this and my only advice is to talk to her. Seriously, over-thinking and fretting about this kind of thing gets you pretty much no where but stressed. You know what the risks of getting caught are, you know how hard and difficult it would be hiding a romantic relationship or a no-strings hookup relationship. The only questions are, what does she want and does it line up with what you want?

Technically he's correct, the word apology does not appear in the scriptures. Unfortunately there's a plethora of words in the scriptures that mean essentially the same thing. In true apologist fashion he made it about a technicality when the heart of what an apology is appears throughout the scriptures.
Here's some synonyms for apology that do appear in the scriptures: confession, admission, plea, acknowledge and most of all atonement. The word atonement is synonymous with apology.
well, technically it doesn't need an "exact" synonym because by definition a synonym is something that has the exact or nearly the same meaning. So there are synonyms of synonym
There's three websites I have bookmarked and consistently use for naming. Often, though, I'll have placeholder names and just wait for a word I read or hear in real life to inspire me.
The key is to combine these three resources, so you can turn something simple like "the Land of John" into something much more exotic. Always remember to do a quick google check to make sure your name isn't offensive in some language you didn't consider. Hope this helps!
What you need is a thesaurus
Some of the first options given:
Just after a quick skimming of your link, it seems people who are pro-greed are actually pro-ambition and aren't aware of the inherent selfishness of greed. Greed is not a synonym for ambition. Maybe this false equivalence comes from a similar place as the tired "plants have feelings too" argument. Thanks for the link!
Trivial as in a trivial aspect of, not in comparison to. Minute would again be the correct word as the Death Star is not an aspect or detail of the Force.
Notice that they are not synonyms. They both have the same etymology, deriving from the word minutus, but have different meanings.
The exhaust port was a minutia of the Death Star. A small trivial detail which was overlooked by the Empire and exploited by the Rebellion by an X-Wing; ships that are minute in comparison to the station.
Synonyms of mutiny:
What I'm doing is a petiton, not a revolt. Nothing whatsoever in any of the links you've listed indicates that petition is equal to mutiny in the general sense.
You really don't speak the same language as I do.
It's right in the fucking synonyms. Do you know what a fucking synonym is?
Goddamn, enjoy your world.
Do you not understand the difference between a dictionary and a thesaurus either?
Did you notice that "sire" was also on that list of words similar to "create"? So by your argument parents are creating their children, contradicting your claims.
Ah, here we go, the semantics and strawman argumentatives. Tasteful vs classy where meaning is family. Selective reading because you ignore references, or maybe don't know your history of Gia, photographers I named, and the other models all lined up for named and implied that have agreed to and been proud of their Playboy and other explicit work.
You're all over the board here.
How exactly do you know Jeana was unprofessional at her Playboy shoot? You were there? No? Then your argument is null and over assumptive.
I also don't get how you figure Playboy isnt still a well respected brand... just because you think so? Playboy's gross income amounted to some $220 million last year, more like $300 million if you include their publishing licensing program which spans the world. Not too shabby for a dedicated and relatively small business comparative... and yes, celebrities are still lining up to be included in the pages both naked and in interview.
None of that matters anyway, straw man. Your argumentative points to nothing to support ... whatever it is you think you're really arguing here. You don't like Jeana, and that's fine, but don't try to somehow reason it down to her being a horrible human being because she's got some nude pictures in the pipeline like everyone else does. (Note: I actually considered directly linking NSFW images here to prove the point but this isn't really the forum and you can find Booble on your own.)
Or that you assume to know what kind of person she is without ever being in a room with her...
As for you being the say so on porn vs art... good luck with that.
> This Article is Stating an objective Fact. (...) That does not make this fact any different, Biased yes.
You just claimed that something biased is an objective fact. "Biased" and "objective" are literally exact opposites. The definition of "objective" is literally "not biased".
You're the only one talking about nagging. Here's where it says that harassing is a synonym for bugging, which is what OP said in the title.
Screenshot, just to make it easier for you.
My concern is that a lot of people in this country are able to buy a gun that is capable of killing/injuring hundreds of people in a matter of minutes. So you posted a couple sources on 9/11. Cool. I don't think anyone forgot how many people died that day. What's more likely: a person shooting you, or a Muslim hijacking a plane/detonating a car bomb and killing you? You're trying to compare massive, well-planned terrorist attacks, to crimes committed by guns that almost anyone can get. Unless we do something about that, there will be more and more instances of shootings like this, and I fear your "Muslims have a higher kill count" claim won't be accurate anymore.
Side note: Why do you Drumpnuts always end your statements with "Sad". It makes me laugh every time I see it. It's like you need to remind yourself of how you feel every time you look at yourself in the mirror. Do you guys have any other ways of conveying emotions? Here's a link to an online thesaurus, just in case you'd like to expand your one-worded, statement-ending vocabulary.
Not to be a nazi, but yah, "kick" isn't always used literally. "kicked off" could have a variety of meaning/uses that don't neccesarily involve violence.
I highly recommend siderea's article on 'asshole filters'.
> ... when you set up a system whereby the honest, rule-following people get screwed and the transgressors are rewarded, you should expect that the honest, rule-following people with whom you ultimately deal, who didn't cross over to transgressiveness, will be wicked pissed. Not only will you be dealing with transgressive people being transgressive, you will also be dealing with non-transgressive people being confrontational. Politely, circumspectly, firmly, icily confrontational.
'Umbrage' comes to mind, and a few of its synonyms, particularly 'pique', 'offense', 'resentment', or more obscurely, 'high dudgeon'.

> The second person isn't offended. The second person is annoyed. Exasperated.
That is exactly what offended means. "To irritate or annoy" is the primary definition of 'offend' on dictionary.com and exasperated is the second suggestion for 'offended' on thesaurus.com.
To be offended is to be annoyed or exasperated by something. For example, right now you are offended by the previous comment.
> Outside of marriage means that you are not currently in a marriage, IE: not cheating on your husband/wife
Sex before marriage is called pre-marital sex.
If you had seen the video, you would know that she goes to say, "sex before marriage, sex outside of marriage....its my choice". Clearly, "sex outside of marriage" would imply adultery.

"Multimedia" or "Mixed Media" artist if they're using different mediums (like painting partially over a photograph for example).
"fusion" or "cross-genre" artist would be good ones for if they are mixing different styles withing the same medium.
Or take a word that means "to combine" and use it in reference to a person (i.e. "compositor" or "integrator"). A thesaurus might be useful if you go that route.
I'm going to assume you're not trolling here and that you simply don't see your own logical fallacies.
> I did generate a point based on this data. Those things I've posted are all things that I wasn't specifically looking for to make my point.
You cannot extrapolate from a couple of data points (a few tweets and a facebook post) anything about a much larger data set. You are using far too little data for far too large a data set.
What did you eat for lunch today? Let's say it was Mexican. Now imagine if I claimed, "Hah! wecl0me12 eats Mexican for every meal, every day!" Clearly this is absurd, right? I don't have enough data but I'm making a very broad claim. You need to look at all the data, not just the data that supports your claim.
> Mainstream social justice activism doesn't really go against this either.
This point has been addressed in other comments by other posters. You're being intellectually dishonest by continuing to parrot this.
> I didn't say that those tweets are representative of the modern social justice movement, but they are examples.
"Example" and "representation" are synonyms. You contradict yourself here in a single sentence.
> then do so
No. You need to support your point first, then I try to challenge it. You haven't proven your point first. By your own definition, you need to provide, "one example of when modern (post-2010) social justice activism has [in]creased the amount of segregation - where a certain race was previously  allowed to do something because of their race, but through social justice activism, are now [not] allowed to do." You haven't done this, so there isn't anything to prove wrong.
If I claimed there was a pink elephant in the room and charged you with proving me wrong, you'd laugh at me - but you're making a similarly unfounded claim.
He didn't coin it. That word has been around forever.
There aren't good replacements for the word 'dotard'. It has a specific meaning that isn't captured well by other words. It's not a generic insult term, it means something.

"Pilfered" sure is a big word for someone who thinks a political party and an economic system are religions. I even know the web page they got it from http://www.thesaurus.com/browse/steal.
Also if they looked at the definition what they said is "whites feast on what they've stolen (minor items) in small quantities"; based on context I dont think thats what they were going for.

Hemingway said it, "First drafts are shit."
It's a bad idea to give people first drafts to read, and I am going to guess this is the first draft.
Here is the opening paragraph:
21st April 1997
The clock was nearing five pm. It was the twenty first day of the blisteringly hot month of April. The bright orange sun reluctantly made way for the clouds. The beautiful orangish red tint on the evening sky was consumed by darkness. Soon, it became totally dark, the sun had surrendered in front of the clouds.
There are many things to mention here.
The paragraph has five sentences. Three of them start with the word 'the' - that is not an effective way to grab your reader.
Since you identify the date along with the location, I don't know why you use your second sentence to tell us the date again.
It also recommended limiting the use of adverbs (words that end in -ly) because they can be replaced with more effective words. You have two adverbs in your first five sentences.
The rest of the paragraph tries to describe a sunset, using the words 'orange' and 'orangish' and then explain that the sun has set (at 5 pm) by going behind clouds. That's not how it works. Sunset happens after the sun dips below the horizon.
My point here is that these issues can be easily fixed by re-writing and polishing your work. Try reading things out loud. It's a great way to reveal issues such as repetition. Use a thesaurus to replace weak words like 'beautiful'
I hope this was helpful. Good luck and keep writing.
There's nothing "unnecessarily" gendered about it.
It's literally synonymous with humankind.
This is nothing more than pushing identity politics onto students. And it's fucking wrong.
For future park expansions:
Basically just take these and match them up with these.
It isn't. A fang is simply a tooth shaped like an animal's claw. It has no bearing on whether you can get an infection from the bite. There are times where a venomous snake won't even inject venom for a defensive bite called a 'dry bite' and even then you can get a nasty infection. Lizards can give you an infection as well.
I'm beginning to think that a replacement institution should be organized. I wonder how the people who can't grasp the definition of, "planned", would react to a rebranding or, better yet, a chain of facilities using an antonym.
Orchids come in many colors so it seems a bit odd to name a color "orchid."
There are so many other options too.
Edit: I don't agree with all of these "synonyms" they were generated by a computer.
I don't get why you think the name of the game should be what the characters are called. League of Legends isn't called "Champions", Smite isn't called "Gods", etc. Paladins and champions are pretty much synonymous with each other anyways, even thesaurus.com has them as synonyms: http://www.thesaurus.com/browse/paladin?s=t
You keep justifying autism because cancerous seems just as bad but people use it too. Cancerous is not O.K. but we accept it here on the internet.
To spare the same 2 replies being repeated verbatim, I'll humor you and justify cancerous over autistic.
Cancerous can be used to describe something that is toxic. People suffer from cancer (my Grandmother passed away from lung cancer) and people suffer very deeply. I believe that every cancer victim would agree that cancer is a bad thing- a toxic disease that spreads through the body. "Bad". I hope you can agree that calling anything that seems like it would hurt others in a disease like fashion could be labeled a cancer.
Autism is a word that is only attributed to the mental condition- something that people suffer from. I stress that this is a mental condition because in most cases it envelops a person's entire mind leaving them out of control of how they would act if they did not have autism. Several forms of high-spectrum autism frequently define how a person will behave for the rest of their life.
When you call someone autistic and mean it as "Bad" or "Stupid" or "Retarded", you are shitting on every single person affected by autism in the way that I described it.
When you call something cancerous and mean it as "Bad", you are shitting on a disease which the affected people already despise.
Here is a website that can inform you on what autism is and here is a list of synonyms for cancerous as opposed to synonyms for autistic (none).
>You and other pro-Russians are trying to make it sound like he said something he didn't.
No, the problem are the people who are claiming that Putin meant that Russian army is going to physically stand behind civilians, completely ignoring the other, very common, meaning of the phrase.
> stand back of (redirected from stand behind someone or something)
stand (in) back of someone or something and stand behind someone or something
>1. Lit. to place oneself at the rear of someone or something. Please stand behind your friends. The police told them to stand behind the fence.
>2. Fig. to guarantee someone or something; to guarantee the performance or worth of someone or something. I will stand back of Elaine. I trust her totally. The manufacturer stands behind this product.
See also: back, of, stand
>Synonyms for stand behind advocate assist encourage endorse favor finance side with sponsor uphold
> Wow you are stupid.
Maybe. My joke wasn't exactly a highbrow attempt to bridge the widening political divide of the country.
Then again, after seeing some of your other comments, I'm not exactly in awe of you're enlightened opinions or rapier like wit either.
And, if you absolutely, positively, unabashedly feel compelled to insult me on a personal level, might I recommend perusing a thesaurus for a bit, to make it more entertaining for everyone involved.
Have a great day! :)
I would say mechanic's actions were reckless, a step above gross negligence. And would even be enough to support a depraved heart murder charge should someone die as a result of the mechanic's conduct.
Carelessness is negligence. Negligence means carelessness. They are top synonyms for each other. Source: http://www.thesaurus.com/browse/negligence?s=t
So when we add the modifier "extreme" does "careless" still just mean plain old negligence or would it mean something more like "gross negligence?"
Yeah of course she acted with specific intent. You can't grossly negligently or extremely carelessly sent up a functioning private email server and use it for years. That's about one of the most impossible things in the world. We know that. But my point is if we take the too-clever-by-half FBI at their own words, they gave plenty of cause to indict. But that ain't going to happen with this current DOJ crew.
The site certainly looks good! (apart from the use of Microsoft blue- wtf?)
Here's my tuppence-worth of constructive criticism
'Evil software mega-corporations' sounds trite, especially the 'evil' adjective. Some of us may believe that but it is arrogant to impose moral value judgements upon your readers so early on.
Firefox- 'Great battery life'?, this is a meaningless and erroneous statement.
I think the use of the word 'boasts' in the descriptor for Libre Office could be addressed. The meanings generally associated with this word mean that it could be viewed somewhat negatively. Perhaps use 'which offers' for the first instance and at least 'incorporating' or similar for the second instance to at least prevent repetition. (edit-he says, repeating 'at least'- lol)
Also the comparison that Libre Office is faster than Chrome is totally meaningless.
Also why Kubuntu for old hardware rather than Xubuntu/Lubuntu?
Thunderbird descriptor: 'it supports stuff / other stuff'. Really? This language looks and sounds sloppy, like you either don't know or couldn't be bothered to finish properly.
Similar with Kdenlive: 'other cool stuff'- sounds sloppy. There is a plethora of actual features that you could actually write here.
Marble: 'it spins?'. Why the question mark? Sounds like you aren't quite sure yourself of what it does.
Just needs some tidying up and some actual definitions and concrete definitions of features. ≧☉_☉≦
You need to look at the thesaurus entries for continuing and patrols because those reports still look too repetitive.
Paraphrasing my own comment from an older thread:
I used to have the hardest time with titles! Here are a few examples of ways I go about making it easier on myself (for when I don't have a title in mind all along, that is):
Song lyrics. Any particular song(s) you listened to on repeat while writing your fic? Check out the lyrics for inspiration (and avoid picking the title, especially in the case of a more well known song!).
>Ex: Another Barrier is a fragment of a line from the Cai.ro song Addict (which I had on repeat while writing the fic).
One-word titles. Any reoccurring themes in your fic? Pick a word. If you don't like the word go to Thesaurus.com and check out synonyms.
>Ex: Radiation is a synonym for emission, and "emit" is a word that is emphasized in the last sentence of my fic.
Quotes. Again, pick keywords from your fic and google [word] quotes and see what comes up.
>Ex: Handful of Bad Luck is based off a quote from St. Catherine of Siena, found googling "bad luck quote".
Lines from poems. Go to Poetry Foundation and search for keywords that match your fic's theme. Find a poem that mirrors the general feeling/theme of your fic and choose a line from it. This is my newest way of picking titles and also, I think, my favorite!
>Ex: Tangent to Our Own is from the first line of Dick Allen's poem Theory of the Alternate Universe.
Please, don't project. I understand that it might hurt your ego to discover that you're in contradiction to the scientific community, but that's no basis to pretend someone doesn't know the difference between pesticides and herbicides so you can rationalize ignoring the science.
Also, yes, they are used interchangeably.
>Synonyms for herbicide
>defoliant insecticide pesticide DDT paraquat weedkiller
Even with prior knowledge the best teacher is real life experience ... Knowing and Doing are completely separate things.
I believe one of the things that should be stressed is that Failure is an Option, is in fact a necessity. If you are pushing the envelope in any or all aspects of your life, then you are bound to fail at some point or another.
The key take takeaways when you fail at something is to learn from that mistake/failure (something I didn't do for many years) and just as importantly, to get back up and keep fucking trying (which I did do)...
-as a side note-I prefer to think that I am more Hardened by experience, rather than Grizzled with it
>a near-30 year old man thinks the word synonym means words are "close but not the same meaning".
I don't know how old you are, but you're wrong on this one. In general, no two words have exactly the same meaning. Even if two words share a denotation, they rarely, if ever, share a connotation.
For an example taken totally at random: a synonym of empathy is sympathy. Speaking purely hypothetically here, someone would be absolutely correct to note that the two words are synonyms, and still go on to ask what the differences are.
I'm sure you could dig up some evidence to support your claim that they don't know anything, but if not knowing the meaning of synonym is a valid reason not to take someone's advice, I'm sorry, but nobody should take your advice.
And also you seem like a dick.
So why not call him a fool? That is hilariously bad reasoning.
You could easily run around yelling "NIGGER NIGGER NIGGER" and then use the same excuse, and it would be just as laughable there as it is in this situation.
Here are some better words that are more commonly used. Notice the absence of the word "monkey"
> My ex-girlfriend said she wanted to keep her maiden name
> I said, "cool, you dont have to take my name, and we dont have to get married".
Hoo boy. Here is a non-comprehensive list of words for that OP.
Also kinda strikes me as someone I'd read about over on /r/raisedbynarcissists... "Oh, you won't do what I want you to do? Well that's fine, but in turn let me freak the fuck out and stretch the limits of extreme over reacting."
"Snackrifice" is a word I will be using very often from now on.
Looking through the online thesaurus, I'm quite fond of the word 'pet' and it might be my favourite slang option. Or "wrap"!
"Aw yisss. I'd pet/wrap that."
I love using http://www.thesaurus.com/
All religions are cults. The disconnect here is that everyone thinks cults are a bad thing (I've my own opinions on this that I will not go in to - this is purely objective), so nobody wants their organization to be labeled as a cult.
Here's ~~the~~ a definition:
> a system of religious veneration and devotion directed toward a particular figure or object.
All religions are cults by definition. Whether that's bad or good is something else entirely, and is unrelated to the classification of such an organization.
Even Merriam-Webster and www.thesaurus.com list "cult" as a synonym for "religion".
>the opposite of cute isn't being a nazi.
>Cute, antonyms –
The Nazi's authoritarianism, racism, and genocide seems pretty much the culmination of all of those things. So, yea, I think it's fair to say that being a Nazi is the opposite of being cute.
Sure, there were other directions he could have taken, but he went all-out, and the humor in that was appreciated by millions. Far more in any case than the number of people who actually believed that he was promoting Nazi ideology.
