When the Big Four - President Woodrow Wilson of the United States, PM David Lloyd George of Britain, PM Vittorio Orlando of Italy, and PM Georges Clemenceau of France - gathered near Paris in 1919 to hammer out the terms of the Treaty of Versailles after World War I had ended in November, 1918, the French Prime Minister said this of President Woodrow Wilson's 14 Points:

Mr. Wilson bores me with his Fourteen Points; why, God Almighty has only Ten!

I'm related to David Lloyd George. He's a great, great, great.....distant someone, but I grew up hearing how great he was.
Guess I'll google him and see if this true.

@JtC @JtC @JtC
... aah forgot you wouldn't be able to understand. Sorry. Wink

there is a user at dailykos with the name of noweasels. Just to demonstrate how difficult it is to understand what can go wrong in the understanding of words that are not from your own mother language, I read this username in my mind as "now easels" and was wondering all the time why that person had chosen such a "weird" online name.

It took a real live meeting one day, when user navajo and teacherken were in Washington DC and navajo made a polite little remarkt to me, when she heard me talking about "now easels" saying, oh that's a nice way of putting it. It was only then that I realized there is a word in English that is "weasel" and looked up its meaning afterwards.

Gosh, I felt so bad. One thing happens often (to me). I believe I know the meaning of an English word and don't look it up, because - you know - why - I know the word. Shoot me. I don't.

Now I don't weasel around the dictionary anymore. I am prepared for all the embarrassing misunderstandings there can be.

oh, yes, I use a tissue, and don't drop my snot on my t-shirt. (mimi's translation of JtC's rule no. 1)

Weaseling myself around the dangerous cliffs of C99p. Smile

@mimi English speaker and one of my favorite things about my Kindle is the dictionary function. All those words I feel I know, and mostly I do get them, but it has been great to look them up with just one easy motion. Now if someone asked me what hyperbole really means, I feel much more confident telling them.

Psychopathy is not a political position, whether labeled 'conservatism', 'centrism' or 'left'.

A tin labeled 'coffee' may be a can of worms or pathology identified by a lack of empathy/willingness to harm others to achieve personal desires.
