I have no idea but I suppose I need one.
In Swedish we do have the word stånk, which is how you sound when you poop. I guess they're related. Same pronunciation.

Essay question: why is it, nowadays, encouraged to be a sensitive girlman when everyone hates sensitive girlmen?

Thanks for the stånky answer salute

non-essay-answer: maybe not everyone hates sensitive girlman, and you're making generalisations based on your own opinion of the sensitive girlman? as for why it's encouraged, I'm just guessing here but things seem to go from one extreme to another so now we've moved from the tough manly man to sensitive girlman as a sort of a counterreaction, maybe things will even out and we will have sensitive manly men or tough girly men or something in the future.

Stonks are an internet meme about the stock market. Instead of stocks it's stonk. Been around for years but recently hit mainstream with the Gamestop scenario going on right now.

I once invented : M

It was a mistyped :/ that stuck, since it looks like a open bird mouth facing upward.

For me : M is like "shock" and "defeat" at the same time.

Then soooomeone made a fucking parrot, : M is obviously big beaked, like a crow. And it doesn't dance.

I have been robbed!

I can't even write it without that ugly bird mocking me with its dance. Emote

It was an interpretation from a friend who popularized it as a parrot and kind of overtook the use and spread.

Einstein's theory of general relativity mate. From the point of view of the moon, why isn't everything else spinning? Food for thought, have a big bite from this chunk of cheese we call the "moon" to satiate your intellectual thirst ;-)

Why do I worry and stress about upcoming work related shit for weeks when I have a deadline, when it would take me just a few hours to get it over with? I'm not like this in other areas of life, usually I either get things done or don't worry about them.

why do the japanese censor the best bit of porn, they should reverse the censoring and show only the sex organs.
