Re: Conlangery Podcast (Latest Ep: #11: Nonconfigurationalit

When is that profanity podcast coming out? Are you serious about making it number 13? Who is this Fuck you speak of? http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/picard-facepalm.jpg That was intentional and you know it. It was to get the point across that all he needed to say was, "Were are you goin...

On topic however. I love your podcast. It is a brilliant idea and I love listening. Your conlang of the week is a clever touch.

Re: Conlangery Podcast (Latest Ep: #11: Nonconfigurationalit

Who is this Fuck you speak of? Is he some kind of God? A semi demon or angel? Normally I would think it was profanity but you turned it into a noun and described him as holy. Is this guy on par with the Catholic view of the virgin Mary?

Re: Against Peace and Freedom out soon!

Could it be a pre-order thing?

Also yes unicode is supported on kindle. It is the only way I can be mobile and read this site. And odd Wikipedia articles.

Re: Incatena

How would quantum mechanics play into technology? Today we are at the door front of this technology. In a few years we feasibly can send faster than light messages with 100% encryption. Imagine 2000 years from now. Couldn't you cloak an interstellar ship though meta-materials? One last thing. Planet...

Ocean currents direct climate. The Sahara was rain forest. Then the gulf stream shifted and caused a desert to form. But only the largest in the world.

cold-tolerant, plus there's more light. The planet is inside a planetary nebula kinda like the crab nebula, not very far from these massive stars that stirr up the whole interstellar medium there, so even during the night there's a fair amount of light reaching the planet's surface... you can read ...

Re: Movement in Lower Gravity

Since your conworld has a thicker atmoshere, I think it'd come down to the ratio of oxygen ( assuming that's what you conspecies breathe) in the planet's atmosphere. If you have a conciderably high ratio of oxygen your lifeforms could afford to have vastly varying levels of gracility or rubustness ...

So, I got bored this evening, and wrote this. I regret it now, because writing it seriously freaked me out (it's based on one of my own nightmares, and I am a very nervous person, so it's pretty easy for me to be creeped out by a nightmare from when I was a child), but here. His eyes snapped open. ...

Re: The Problem with Conlanging

I live in a fairly Christian community (I enjoy it but enough said.) So when I brought it up, I was asked if I was trying to recreate God's language, the first language, and stuff along similar lines. I said no and that it was a hopeless endeavor. Besides the closest I think you can get is learning ...

If you had three lives, you could probably spend all three of them working on your project and still not reaching a point of satisfaction. I mean, creating a world, that's what nature took 4.5 billion years in the case of our own, and it's still not complete, because there is no such thing as 'comp...
