I have an exam on monday, and i work on the weekend, so that only leaves very little time to study, and i have to study from the start since i wasn't paying attention in class. And i can't study in a library cuz i hate to dress all nice and **** and study in public.

  • Is "ain't" a word?

    A lot of people say it's not a word: but, I found it in the dictionary. So, I'm confused.

  • What does the o' in o'clock mean?

    Best answer: In the fourteenth century, the mechanical clock was invented. However, not everyone used it yet (some still used sun dials and hourglasses and water clocks, which may use slightly different systems of time). So to emphasize that we are using a "real clock," we say "It's 7 of the... show more
    Best answer: In the fourteenth century, the mechanical clock was invented. However, not everyone used it yet (some still used sun dials and hourglasses and water clocks, which may use slightly different systems of time). So to emphasize that we are using a "real clock," we say

    "It's 7 of the clock."

    But of course something like this always gets abbreviated in the end. In the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries more and more people used "o'clock" instead of "of the clock." By the eighteenth century it was widespread, the same time the word Jack-o'-lantern (Jack of the lantern) became popular.

    Today we no longer need to emphasize that our measurements are "of the clock," but apparently we still use the phrase.

    I'm not a native speaker of English. I would like native speakers of English to answer this question. "I live in London for three years." Do you think this sentence is grammatically correct? I learned that you have to say either "I have lived in London for three years." or "I have been living in London for three years." and that "I live in London for three years." is wrong. If this sentence is correct, would you please tell me the difference between "I live in London for three years." and "I have lived in London for three years." and in what situation you think you could say "I live in London for three years." Thank you.

  • Are we too harsh on paedophiles?

    There are many paedophiles out there that don’t act on their perversions, have never harmed children and don’t look at explicit images of children. Nobody is born as a paedophile, it’s a paraphila that’s conditioned into the person from some form of event. Does that really makes someone “sick”, because I’d... show more
    There are many paedophiles out there that don’t act on their perversions, have never harmed children and don’t look at explicit images of children. Nobody is born as a paedophile, it’s a paraphila that’s conditioned into the person from some form of event. Does that really makes someone “sick”, because I’d personally call them a victim. There are many self-help programmes for paedophiles, but who’s going to open up about their paraphila if there’s a good chance they’re going to be ostracised for it? If there was less shame in paedophila more paedophiles would seek help for their condition. I am very well aware that paedophiles can be dangerous and that many children are victims, so I don’t want anyone ignoring my initial statement and shouting out irrelevances. I am talking about the paedophiles who DON’T act on their impulses and have their morals in check.
