[02:25:50] <mrpg> ok let's see.
[02:32:53] <mrpg> I'll do "fossilised drandruff"
[02:32:54] <mrpg> ew
[02:33:00] <mrpg> dandruff ready
[02:33:17] <mrpg> Why AI can’t solve everything?
[02:33:25] <mrpg> I don't know, ask an AI.
[02:37:50] <mrpg> I'll do "New Treatment For Severe Asthma"
[02:40:51] <mrpg> Nessie's back! - source RT. Ok. Sure.
[02:41:56] <mrpg> Ok I just saw the video, there is nothing there.
[02:42:49] <mrpg> I wasted 40 seconds of my life reading that
[02:51:47] <mrpg> back to asthma.
[02:55:51] <mrpg> asthma ready
[03:10:08] <Bytram> mrpg: dare I say it? That you did a breathtaking job on the asthma story? ;)
[03:10:32] <Bytram> Samsung Roadmap

[03:14:10] <Bytram> 2nding asthma
[03:16:05] <mrpg> I got a second job on Saturdays, teaching English!
[03:16:17] <mrpg> Now I have to study English.
[03:16:56] <mrpg> I've been trainig for three days. I'm tired.

[03:17:10] <Bytram> An old adage: "If you *really* want to understand something, try explaining it to someone else!"
[03:17:52] <mrpg> That's so true. I find myself looking up things I am not quite sure of.
[03:18:31] <Bytram> if it is any comfort, I still find myself doing that on occasion, and English is my primary language!
[03:18:51] <mrpg> I just learned that there is a misconception in the use of between for more that two items.
[03:19:13] <mrpg> Thank you Merriam Webster!
[03:19:20] <mrpg> You're my only hope!
[03:19:43] <Bytram> so... you can't tell the difference between this, that, and the other thing?
[03:19:47] <Bytram> ;)
[03:20:12] * Bytram added journal ref to the asthma story
[03:20:20] <mrpg> Hehe no, some people say you need to use among for more than two items.
[03:20:30] <Bytram> otherwise, looked fine!
[03:20:42] <mrpg> #g m-w between among
[03:20:42] <MrPlow> https://www.merriam-webster.com - "3 days ago ... ... of : surrounded by. How to use among in a sentence. between vs. among. ... two are enumerated. between you and me and the lamppost."
[03:20:43] <upstart> ^ 03Among | Definition of Among by Merriam-Webster
[03:20:56] <Bytram> well then, among you and me, that would not be enough?
[03:21:35] <Bytram> oh, wait... that reminds me of something... give me a minute or two to track it down.
[03:22:37] <mrpg> English is a crazy language. There's no pine or apple in pineapple.
[03:22:56] <mrpg> #g english is a crazy language

[03:24:10] <mrpg> heeh I read it long time ago. Number two is false, m-w has a video about it.
[03:24:40] <mrpg> In Spanish we use double negatives.
[03:24:55] <Bytram> A prohibition against prepositions at the end of a sentence is something that I can not up with put.
[03:25:11] <mrpg> better :)
[03:25:21] <Bytram> mare sea!
[03:25:41] <Bytram> I ain't gonna use no double negatives!
[03:26:00] <mrpg> IS there an error in number 9? I don't see it.

[03:36:05] <Bytram> well, I got out of work about two hours ago, and need to be back to work in a bit over 9 hours from now... since the story queue looks to be in good shape, I think I'm gonna call it a night.
[03:36:18] <mrpg> Me too, I'm tired, I have to work tomorrow.
[03:36:23] <mrpg> Bye!
