"Tonight will surely be the night that I cut up all of the hot peppers and don’t get capsaicin in all the cracks of my dried-out skin and spend the next few hours crying."

Imagine how it would look if the Orion nebula is only four light years away - the distance the nearest star is to us, instead of 1,300 light years. It would be so bright that we wouldn’t be aware of the dark sky. We wouldn’t see other stars. The whole world would be the Orion nebula and the sun.

dude i hope you know that “je suis le pain” translates into “i am the bread”
I always find it hilarious when people combine things from two different languages thinking they’re saying something cool but they forget that words mean different things in different languages.
One that always rings out in my mind was back in my youth there was this just raging douche who started hanging around in one of my chats who went by ZetaRonin, and he started going on about great he was and how his name meant “The Last Ronin”. I pointed out to him that Zeta is the 6th letter/7th numeral of the Greek Alphabet, so if he had wanted that it would’ve needed to be OmegaRonin.
He was devastated that his internet persona was a lie and I never saw him again.
I remember our French teacher telling us about the time she met her fiancee’s parents for the first time. She was not a native French speaker (being a filthy American), and they were monolingually French, so they were driving back from the airport and she was like “I gotta break the awkward silence, but how,” and they were driving through a pine forest, and she said “‘I’ll make some comment on the forest surrounding us. What’s the French word for “pine”, though? Well, I’ll just throw an accent on the English word, they’ll know what I mean.”
And so it came to pass that the first sentence her fiancee’s parents heard from her was to the effect of “My! What lovely penises here!”
