In completely unimportant news, I just noticed that my last two ZBB posts were posted exactly 24 hours apart. Huh.

Is the word "Catholic", in the English language, usually stressed on the first or the second syllable? I'm pretty sure I've heard both versions. (Although in Every Sperm is Sacred, the stress is on the first. But that may or may not be a requirement of the tune.)

I don't remember hearing it as anything but ~ /ˈkaθlɪk/.

I can only think of it being stressed on the first syllable, not the second or third. (Some people pronounce it with three, especially in emphasis)

Don't think I've heard that. Only ever [ˈkʰaθlɪk̚]. The <o> is muted; however it is not only pronounced but stressed in [kə'θɔlɪsɪzm̯].

I do that, no emphasis needed: [ˈkʰæθəlɪk̚].

Cátholic but Cathólicism, which might be where you think you're hearing stress on the second syllable.

(like phótograph / photógraphy)

Just need some advice on my current path in life. Right now, I am thirty years old and I have been wanting to move across the country for years. Considering that my life is almost half over, would you say that I am too old to move at this point?

I am 22 and now I am laying on a bed with my laptop and browsing reddit, when I could be going on a bender, doing drugs or having unprotected sex.

What am I doing with my life?

Actually, going by The Pole's avatar image, he would be a moron not to go out on benders, drug-fuelled road trips, and orgies; he's gonna get labelled with that kind of thing anyway ;)

If your life is "almost half over", then it's not even half started. And if you're worried you're "getting too old to do things" (you're not), then the sooner you do it the better.

But most people I know have already established themselves in their twenties, already owning their own homes and starting families. And in less than ten years, I will be middle-aged.

You were asking about moving and doing things, not starting a family/settling down, so I can't help you except for offering the anecdotal evidence that if you're already meeting new people because you moved, you're more likely to meet someone to date who hasn't settled down themselves yet, if everyone you know has.

I'm in my twenties and I far from establishing myself, let alone having a family and/or house.

Is creating a profile on Fetlife a good first step before finding an orgy?

I'm almost 29 and don't even have a job at the moment, let alone establish myself (what does that even mean? Pick a permanent career or what?) or have a house. I definitely want a family much later than a house.
