    Did I?

    Is clock fascism a thing, then?

    But in fact I'm fluent in mod 24, thank you.

    I'm not so hot on all that eight bells stuff, though.

    A quarter come on is where you try to chat someone up, but you bottle out only 25% of the way through.

    I like my German better. You can't say in many other languages something like "5 past half past 6" or so ^^.

    And congrats to the guys with the girls :goodjob:.


    Own rave: Had a pretty nice weekend in Belgium, did some sight seeing, talked to some girls, had fun at a party :).

    We'd say 'twenty-five to' instead. :)

    Lohren simply got his preposition wrong. He clearly meant a quarter to, right?

    Anyway, Catalan is simpler: runs by quarters, but they all refer to how full the hour is. You say "a quarter of four" to mean a quarter past three, and so on.

    Oh. That makes sense, if a little confusing. So a "quarter to four" is "three quarters of four"?

    "ON" and "OVER" are synonyms. if you're on a bridge and your friend is over the bridge you are both above the bridge. quarter on Eight therefore means 8:15

    or you could just say 'quarter after/past' or 'quarter 'til' like sensible anglos :mischief:

    No that doesn't make sense :undecide:

    if you're on a bridge, you're not above it

    We get in a car but on a bus. It's in the morning but at night. No reason. Those who dare question them will only be met with a loud, shrill, ear-piercing sound until they stop questioning.

    Rave: I've been finding a number of songs that I really like lately. That's not easy for me.

    Also went to a second Sanders rally with a girl, the second time we've gone out on a sort-of kind-of date. We got along pretty well. Afterwards, I asked if she wanted to go out for a coffee date later this week, and she agreed. Things are actually taking a turn for the better, at least for now. I didn't know they could do that...

    ...Huh. That's odd. Never happened to me before...
