Test Your Vocabulary: how many words do you know?
Most Native English adult speakers who have taken the test fall in the range 20,000–35,000 words. And for foreign learners of English, we’ve found that the most common vocabulary size is from 2,500–9,000 words.

i think literally the only reason is because i’m a vocab sponge, i’m shit at basically everything else academic. i didn’t know what a noun was until high school, but i never mixed up my their/there/they’re(s) … learning is weird yo
then why can’t I properly explain things?
in America, black people are being gunned down simply for being alive, gay people can’t get married/can’t get jobs, politicians say women are asking for rape, trans people are being murdered every day, Middle Easterns are suspected to be terrorists, white men are defended for shooting up schools, teenage boys are building bombs to murder family and schoolmates and yet people still have the audacity to say this is the land of the free
This one really spoke to me.
A man who police say tried to defend a group of women from catcallers landed in the hospital after he was brutally assaulted in Philadelphia’s Rittenhouse Square early Saturday morning.
Police say the 39-year-old man who was visiting from Texas was walking along 18th and Walnut Streets around 2:45 a.m. when he observed several men inside a Black Nissan pull up next to a group of women.
The men inside the Nissan began taunting and catcalling the women, according to investigators, prompting the victim to get involved.
"The male victim took offense to something that the guys were saying to the girls and said ‘hey, watch what you’re saying,’" said Philadelphia Police Captain George Fuchs.
Police say one of the men inside the Nissan then got out of the car and punched the victim once in the head. The man was knocked unconscious after he fell and struck his head on the concrete
The suspect then ran back into the Nissan which fled west on Walnut. The victim was taken to Hahnemann Hospital where he is currently in stable condition.
"This is a tragic, tragic story," Captain Fuchs said. "Here’s a guy trying to stick up for these girls and he gets victimized."
Police say the suspect’s Nissan had Delaware tags. They are currently looking through surveillance video to see if they can find the license plate number. They are also speaking to a witness at Central Detectives.
And people wonder why women don’t “just say something” when faced with street harassment. This is terrible.
he got ONE punch for saying ONE SENTENCE to defend the girls, and he wasnt even involved. Imagine if the girls had rejected the men in the car and talked back to them.
No, but Steve Carlsberg is one of those characters that needs to be protected at. all. costs.

The Robert Mackenzie was written by Paul Gross and Jay Semko specifically for the episode A Mountie on The Bounty (a nod to Mutiny on The Bounty).
Originally Paul had wanted to use the Gordon Lightfoot song, The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald, about a vessel that sank in Lake Superior in 1975 costing 29 people their lives. Gordon was reluctant to release the rights unless the families of the men who died gave their permission and Paul, apparently was equally reluctant to cause those families any further distress. He explains: “I ended up talking to a woman from Ohio whose only son had drowned on the boat. It was a very difficult conversation. For the first time I felt that horrifying collision of real life and entertainment.”

Please let yourself be proud of small things. Please do that. Please allow yourself to get really excited about playing a video game well or sending an ask you were nervous about or letting a bug outside or peeling the whole orange in one try. Please get so excited about that. Please. That’s so cool I’m so glad you did it.
