Watching sci-fi shows gives me linguistic ideas.

sarvanattar:

I was in the middle of a Stargate SG-1 marathon when I decided I needed a particle for Síntári that makes an imperative more urgent.

It would work in the same way that English, Latin, and Greek all use go!, ite!, or ἴθι! plus another command.

The particle is kri. This is perhaps unsurprising if you’re familiar with the show XD.

So while lainttiskuas means “(You [sg]) write it!,” lainttiskuas kri! would be more along the lines of “Go write it (now)!”

I’m also thinking of deriving it from a verb krije, but I still have to figure out what that verb means. Probably something like “to pay attention to.”

You too, huh? :)

Back in the older versions of Eldraeic, a terminal krí (long-vowel marker on the I to make that sound right) in a sentence was how you converted a requestive into an imperative. Of course, ever since I caught delusions ambitions of publication, that’s had to be kicked out of canon for fairly obvious reasons, but it used to be there…

wolfkazumaru reblogged your post: wolfkazumaru reblogged your photo: Democracy. …

Whoa hey, you unfollowed me. Interesting. I question your method of extrapolation, since all modern democratic nations have mechanisms in place to prevent exactly the kind of scenario you propose.

Some months ago, actually. I still read you on occasion directly, as spare time permits; it’s just that I’m trying with irregular success to waste less time arguing unproductively on-line. Things to do, and all.

Anyway. I question your questioning, since at least many modern democratic nations have methods in practice to bypass those mechanisms if the demos really want to.

(And, incidentally, not all. The UK, for example, under the principle of parliamentary sovereignty, can always override past law with present law, so any mechanisms it may have instituted mean nothing as soon as it passes something that contradicts them. The British Human Rights Act was effectively a dead letter as soon as it was passed, in this respect; the only thing that stops the UK government from passing the Kill Those Bastards Whose Faces We Do Not Like Act is its estimate of the likelihood of losing the next election.)

Bombing other countries is totally a-okay

logicallypositive:

but if a presidential candidate doesn’t personally believe in evolution then *gasp* I can’t bring myself to vote for them. That’s un-scientific

…I submit that there’s a strong positive correlation between our bomb-happiest – and most otherwise grossly flawed, be it social engineering hubris, economic voodoo, or whatever else – governments and the number of people in them willing to ignore the coquetries of objective reality.

It’s a different kind of reality-faking, sure, but I’m willing to make an inductive stretch and generalize the principle.

Trope-a-Day: Landfill Beyond The Stars

Landfill Beyond The Stars: No, just no. It’s hard to imagine the economics that would make it possible to haul junk across space for dumping. And that would make it worthwhile to waste an entire planet to store the stuff. But…

…there are a couple of locations that specialize in recycling of exotic materials in, ah, ways that you wouldn’t want to live next door to, or even on the same planet as, or disposal of really awkward components that can’t just be dumped – like, say, singularities – and which occasionally store piles of things waiting to be recycled. So, “junkyard beyond the stars”, that we can do you.

Alistair’s 43rd Law

Pretty much any large organisation will generate enough coincidences and communication inefficiencies to produce a feeling of underhandedness and suspicious coincidence, and thus any large organisation will have its very own trailing cloud of conspiracy theorists.
