JokeMania: The Controversial English Language

English Language, Let’s face it — English is a crazy language.

There is no egg in eggplant nor ham in hamburger; neither apple nor
pine in pineapple. English muffins weren’t invented in England or French fries in France. Sweetmeats are candies
while sweetbreads, which aren’t sweet, are meat.

We take English for granted. But if we explore it’s paradoxes, we find that quicksand can work slowly, boxing rings are square and a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig.

And why is it that writers write but fingers don’t fing, grocers don’t groce, and hammers don’t ham? If the plural of
tooth is teeth, why isn’t the plural of booth beeth? One goose, 2 geese. So one moose, 2 meese? One index, 2 indices?

Doesn’t it seem crazy that you can make amends but not one amend, that you comb through annals of history but not a
single annal? If you have a bunch of odds and ends and get rid of all but one of them, what do you call it?

If teachers taught, why didn’t preachers praught? If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat? If you wrote a letter, perhaps you bote your tongue?

Sometimes I think all the English speakers should be committed to an asylum for the verbally insane. In what
language do people recite at a play and play at a recital? Ship by truck and send cargo by ship? Have noses that run
and feet that smell? Park on driveways and drive on parkways?

How can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same, while a wise man and a wise guy are opposites? How can overlook and
oversee be opposites, while quite a lot and quite a few are alike? How can the weather be hot as hell one day and cold
as hell another?

Have you noticed that we talk about certain things only when they are absent? Have you ever seen a horseful carriage or a strapful gown? Met a sung hero or experienced requited love? Have you ever run into someone who was combobulated, gruntled, ruly or peccable? And where are all those people who ARE spring chickens or who would ACTUALLY hurt a fly?

You have to marvel at the unique lunacy of a language in which your house can burn up as it burns down, in which you
fill in a form by filling it out and in which an alarm goes off by going on.

English was invented by people, not computers, and it reflects the creativity of the human race (which, of
course, isn’t a race at all). That is why, when the stars are out, they are visible, but when the lights are out, they are invisible. And why, when I wind up my watch, I start it, but when I wind up this essay, I end it.

I implore you to chose the pathway to success even in this global lockdown, by obtaining some uncommon strategies best and suitable for you to work and walk out your success.
The truth is this, your destiny is in your hands.
activating your God given potential at work is a nick,what compliments it is how consistent you are in engaging it to be active for destiny fulfilment. Yes! of a truth a great deal of knowledge is lost as a result of lack of equitable character to carry out every desired goal.
However, a good,quality and positive character is a great infrastructure which has defiled all negative odds of been successful ie a positive character is pertinent in projecting a flavoured #attitude which sends a sense of stability to any medium contacted; the outcome and the end of the channel can never seize to be successful.

See Why Pirates Cover One Eye With Eye Patch

In movies, we usually see pirates wearing eye patches. What usually comes to our mind is that probably they have lost one eye either due to fighting or any other reason.

Or even a style statement peculiar to pirates, probably a fashion or something.

The eye patch, that pirates used to wear, was not a style statement or a cover for a missing eye. But no. It was none of them.

pirates

So, what do you think it is?

It was a clever trick of some of the very intelligent pirates.

A recent study says that the human eye adapts to light within seconds when coming out from the dark. But it takes almost 25 minutes to become used to the dark if you’re coming in from bright light.

An example of this is when electricity is being cut off suddenly at night, at first, you wouldn’t be able to see anything, everywhere looks dark but as time goes on you will be able to see some objects around you.

But when you are in the dark and electricity is suddenly restored, your eyes adjust to it immediately.

Pirates had to live among light and dark. One minute they are on deck and the next they have to go below deck. So, some clever ones out of them use to cover one of their eyes.

Whenever they had to go into the dark, they used to shift the eye patch from one eye to the other. That eye already being used to darkness as a result of the patch, helped them to see clearly even in dark.

Sad CoViD-19 Realities: Reason With Me And Stop The Pandemic Panic

The number of deaths in the world in the last two months of 2020

  14,687 : Corona virus

  69,602 : Common cold

  140,584 : Malaria

 153,696 : suicide

 193,479 : road accidents

 240,950 : HIV loss

 358,471 : alcohol

 716,498 : smoking

1,177,141 : Cancer

Then do you think Corona is dangerous?

Or

Is the purpose of the media campaign to settle the trade war between China and America

or

To reduce financial markets to prepare the stage of financial markets for mergers and acquisitions

or

To sell US Treasury bonds to cover the fiscal deficit in them

Or

Is it a Panic created by Pharma companies to sell their products like sanitizer, masks, medicine etc.

Do not Panic & don’t kill urself with unecessary fear:I am posting this to balance your newsfeed from posts that caused fear and panic.

338,724 People are sick with Coronavirus at the moment, of which 81,093 are in China. With a population of over 1.1 billion. This means that if you are not in or haven’t recently visited China, this should eliminate 94% of your concern.

If you do contract Coronavirus, this still is not a cause for panic because:

81% of the Cases are MILD

14% of the Cases are MODERATE

Only 5% of the Cases are CRITICAL

Which means that even if you do get the virus, you are most likely to recover from it.

Some have said, “but this is worse than SARS!”. SARS had a fatality rate of 10% while COVID-19 has a fatality rate of 2%

Moreover, looking at the ages of those who are dying of this virus, the death rate for the people UNDER 50 years of age is only 0.2%

This means that: if you are under 50 years of age and don’t live in China – you are more likely to win the lottery (which has a 1 in 45,000,000 chance)

Sunday 22nd March in Italy 793 died.

Let’s take one of the worst days so far, the 10th of February, when 108 people in CHINA died of Coronavirus.

On the same day:

26,283 people died of Cancer

24,641 people died of Heart Disease

4,300 people died of Diabetes

Suicide took 28 times more lives than the virus did.

Mosquitoes kill 2,740 people every day, HUMANS kill 1,300 fellow humans every day, and Snakes kill 137 people every day. (Sharks kill 2 people a year)

TAKE MULTI VITAMINS AND DO THE DAILY THINGS TO SUPPORT YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM , PROPER HYGIENE AND DO NOT LIVE IN FEAR.

Join Me to Spread Hope instead of Fear. The Biggest Virus is not Corona Virus but Fear!

SHARE TO STOP PANIC
