¡Hoy somos quienes somos por aquellos nuestros héroes, canijos!

El mexicano encuentra fiesta pa’ todo, pero que no se nos olvide, en especial hoy, echar un grito al cielo y agradecer la BELLEZA DE PAÍS que tenemos! Después de ahí viene el tequilita, hay que fortalecer los pulmones p’al rato, y con esa misma pasión y alegría todos los días ser mexicano.

HOY LO CELEBRAMOS, PERO TODOS LOS DÍAS LO SOMOS, ¡SOLDADOS DE ÉSTA, QUE ES NUESTRA PATRIA!

¡QUE VIVA MÉXICO!

dont eat potatoes its culturally appropriating to the irish and as a non irish person it offends ME

Potatoes were first grown and domesticated in Peru by the Andean/Inca people. Not in Ireland. 

If you’re going to try to make a pathetic joke, at least know what you’re talking about first.

Hey, so remember how Israel always falls over itself reminding us how much it cares about the well-being of the LGBTQ community? How it’s the “only safe haven for queer people in the middle east”? How it benevolently cares for injured Palestinians even though we’re all…

"Guess we covered most languages in Europe."

(Actually, languages like Gaelic, Maltese, Sorbian, or Bulgarian are missing. But close enough.)

The reason why “sugar” looks so similar throughout many European languages is borrowing from the same source:

[…]from Medieval Latin succarum, from Arabic sukkar, from Persian shakar, from Sanskrit sharkara “ground or candied sugar,” originally “grit, gravel” (cognate with Greek kroke “pebble”). The Arabic word also was borrowed in Italian (zucchero), Spanish (azucar, with the Arabic article), and German (Old High German zucura, German Zucker), and its forms are represented in most European languages (such as Serbian cukar, Polish cukier, Russian sakhar).

Its Old World home was India (Alexander the Great’s companions marveled at the “honey without bees”) and it remained exotic in Europe until the Arabs began to cultivate it in Sicily and Spain; not until after the Crusades did it begin to rival honey as the West’s sweetener.

To think that I just went to a 1 Euro shop to look at cheap stuff for the kitchen. Guess I can’t escape being a linguist.

Sweet. (*scnr*). But “most languages in Europe”? Come on… that’s 16 out of 72 (285)?
