still don't understand the difference

Partner and I have been rewatching The Two Towers for the first time in a long time.

anyway, one thing that has always been weird for me is Eomer giving Hasufel and Arod to random strangers, just like that.  Just giving them away, two horses, to a trio of foreign travelers he just met and had suspected of being spies.

like.  what?  This is Rohan.  Horses are the thing you value above all else, I don’t care if their riders are dead, even if their riders don’t have actual heirs somewhere to whom ownership would pass (or Rohirric inheritance law works differently and ownership has somehow defaulted to their éored’s commander, IDK), you’re still a calvary force planning to see a lot more battle in the near future, chances are high you’re going to end up with horseless riders who’ll need them.

this time I actually processed the fact, though, that Eomer believes they’ve inadvertantly killed two innocents, prisoners of the orcs, the beloved companions of these travelers.

The horses aren’t a gift.  They’re weregild.

I looked it up but I still don't really understand the difference between a while and awhile? help pls ;-;

Ah, this one’s a bit nuanced…i’ll do my best! 

So to start off, the basic differences: “a while” is a noun-phrase meaning “a short period of time” and “awhile” is an adverb meaning “FOR a short period of time.” 

For a quick brush upon grammar, remember, a noun is a person, place, or thing, and an adverb is a word that modifies a verb by describing HOW the verb [action word] was performed. So a noun would be “Tree, book, year, thought, fish, butterfly, Sarah, London, etc.” while an adverb would be “quickly, slowly, thoughtfully, confusedly, harshly,” etc. Note that many, but not all, adverbs end in “ly.”

So there are your basic terms, but how to know when to use which? The easiest way for me is to see if I could replace the word with a different form of their part of speech–either a different noun phrase, or a different adverb. 

For example: 

“It’s been awhile” or “It’s been a while” 

 Awhile - Is it an adverb?–could I replace “awhile” (adverb form) with a different adverb like “quickly”?

“It’s been quickly.”  - Doesn’t make much sense. Probably not the adverb form.

A while - Is it a noun? could I replace “a while” (noun form) that with a different “time” noun?

“It’s been a year.” –I absolutely could. This is a noun phrase, and should be “a while.”

Another example:

“Go play a while” vs “Go play awhile.” 

A while - Is it a noun? – Could I replace “a while” (noun form) with another noun phrase? 

“Go play a year.” I mean…maybe? But it’d be a little awkward? 

Let’s try the adverb form. 

“Go play quietly.” - that seems to make more sense. This is probably an adverb telling us more about the play we are supposed to go engage in–in this case, telling us how long. 

That rule works a lot of the time. Another important rule of thumb, though–an adverb cannot be the object of a preposition. So if you have a preposition ahead of your “a while” it MUST be the noun. 

A preposition describes a relationship to something, often where or when something is or occurs. The most common form prepositional phrases for this example would be “in a while” or “for a while.” 

Not gonna lie, anon, I probably misuse that one frequently. The two are often interchangeable as they mean close to the same thing in a lot of cases. English, man, amirite? 

Anyway I hope that helped a little!

Different anon, I still don't understand the difference between silly and dumb :/

“silly” implies that something is misguided whilst “dumb” implies that something is unintelligent. i personally think people should stop using intelligence as an insult because i thought we’d come further than that as a society than to make fun of people who genuinely don’t know things.

it’s like… people are like “racists are stupid”. no, they’re not. they’re not unintelligent. they’re assholes, and we shouldn’t give them the benefit of the doubt by assuming that they just don’t know any better.

“Come on, Sammy, you know it’s me ! That was a hell of holy water ! That’s a good one don’t you think so ? I’m lucky I don’t scar.
The exorcise was a nice touch too, but look still here, still the same old Dean with a killer smile. See ? Oh, stop crying like a sissy, you won’t be able to enjoy that pretty smile of mine. Sammy, please, look at me…”

What's the difference between INFPs and INFJs? I did the test some times and everytime I scored as an INFP but searching online a bit lead me to think that I'm more into an INFJ but I still don't understand the difference between them.

I know it can be confusing at first but INFJ and INFP are almost nothing alike. I was in the same spot a couple years ago, I consistently tested as an INFP but kept reading the INFJ online descriptions and relating to them. Honestly, some of the websites make it seem like everyone can be an INFJ “You FEEL EMOTIONS! You are SYMPHATETHIC! Do you become upset and/or angry when a person is mean to your cinnamon roll friend? YOU’RE AN INFJ !!!

The easiest way to distinguish between INFJ and INFP, in my opinion, is to look at the differences between their Fi and Fe and their respective inferior functions.

Fi and Fe are most obvious when communicating with close people - if, for example, someone close to the INFJ has a meltdown, they would:

  • Naturally feel inclined to make the person feel better. It’s almost an instinct, they don’t think about it, they just immediately forget less important things and focus on giving support and comfort in any way possible. They will never ask for something in return. This is prevalent in all high Fe users, even if they are otherwise playfully mean with their friends, they instantly adopt the Mom Friend role when someone is troubled.

In the same situation, an INFP would:

  • Probably freeze. They know exactly what trouble their friend is going through and how it’s affecting them, since they have put themselves in the other person’s shoes in 0,3 seconds. They just have no idea what to do and they will probably start crying because they feel sad for them and are helpless. Instead of offering “active” support, they may just “be there” as a reassurance and an anchor.

Another contrast is the use of the inferior function under stress. INFJs would destroy themselves, while INFPs would destroy other people. You can ask yourself - when you are furious and helpless, what are you more likely to do:

  • Become reckless and inconsiderate of your body and needs, overindulging in certain pleasures (INFJ)
  • Or become a cold-hearted ticking time bomb, fed up with being the punching bag and ready to fight 24/7 (INFP)

Hiii! I've recently discovered all the marykiko stuff and I tried to inform myself, and then I found your blog. First of all, thank you for your theories they are absolutely amazing! But I still have one unanswered question.... Idk if it's stupid but... who are/is marykiko? I know it's the mannequin head but I still don't understand who it is 😓 I've seen many people saying different things so I'm a bit confused and I didn't know who to ask.... (sorry for the long ass text lmao)

No worries! MaryKiko is hard to describe. In the most literal sense, MaryKiko is a  mannequin head Hansol drew on. The open eye representing Mary, a female, and the closed eye is Kiko, a male.
He is also using the name as a sort of alter ego/stage name for some of his dance videos. I’m not too sure if it’s just a name or if it connects to the stories and ideas of MaryKiko.
The main thing Hansol is doing with them is making them into 2 characters. All hes written so far are jumbles of stories that I myself am having trouble figuring out haha.
In the end though, MaryKiko is many things. I like to think it’s generally a window into the creative mind of our Hansol.

I still don't quite understand the difference between ser/estar completo. Could you give some sample sentences that highlight the nuances between the two?

I’m not sure if it’s the same everywhere, because it is a little iffy…

In my opinion, it’s estar completo/a when it means “to be complete” or “to be whole”

But ser algo completo is different.


Los datos están completos. = The data’s complete.
Son datos completos. = It’s finished data.

El expediente está completo. = The dossier is complete.
Es un expediente completo. = It’s a complete dossier.

El archivo está completo. = The archive/file is complete.
Es un archivo completo. = It’s a complete archive/file.

La lista está completa. = The list is complete.
Es una lista completa. = It’s a complete list.

It’s the difference between saying something is complete and in completed [without saying completado/a as an adjective, though you could]

But then you have something like es un caos completo or es un completo caos to say “it’s complete chaos” / “it’s utter chaos”, which is where you’re identifying what a thing is. In that sense, es un caos is “it’s chaos”, but the completo modifies caos so assuming you wanted to say it, el caos está completo “the mayhem is complete” or es un caos completo “it’s a complete disaster” more or less.

lmao cris drinks protein shake from a wine glass i'm sure gio could put some cranberry juice in one ;) On the other hand, if it were wine it does seem quite irresponsible. Doesn't matter what some doctors say there'd no evidence for a "safe amount of alcohol" so the current recommendation is avoidance. I don't want to be judgemental because I'm trying not to be, and i love gio, but she's really young and in a stressful situation. I hope she's being responsible.

Because he’s a drunk, too, duh *infinite eyeroll* but really, this whole thing is just as nonsense as people still not believing she’s pregnant. We don’t know what was in her glass so how about for a change, everyone relaxes and don’t assume the worst of her. I can tell you from personal experience that just because someone is young, they are not dumb or irresponsible. Her age is such a huge thing for many people, like she was a child but we don’t know her, we don’t know how mature she is. Many of my classmates had babies at her age, I would have had if my life had taken that turn. And honestly… Are we also assuming Cris would be stupid enough to let her drink? Come on, you guys…

tysm for your particle masterpost! so much helpful. but I still don't quite understand the difference between the subject and topic marker

My pleasure! ^^

Basically, 은/는 indicates emphasis, focus, or comparison. If you start talking about someone/something new, you’d use 은/는. If you want to specify that this thing is different from other things, you’d use 은/는. If you want to indicate that this part of the sentence is the most important, you’d use 은/는.

이/가 is used to clarify what/who you’re talking about, but it doesn’t have the comparison connotation that 은/는 has. You also use 이/가 in negative sentences.

엄마 50살이에요. 아빠 53살이에요. – Mom is 50 years old. Dad is 53 years old. (*You use 은/는 because you’re specifying who you’re talking about in each sentence.)

내일 내 생일인데 오빠 못 기억할 것 같아. – Tomorrow is my birthday but I don’t think my boyfriend will remember. (*You use 내일은 to indicate that tomorrow, and no other day, is your birthday. And you use 오빠는 to indicate that your boyfriend, unlike anyone else, probably don’t remember.)

커피 좋지. – Coffee is good. (*You’re specifying that you’re talking about coffee, butnot necessarily comparing it to anything else. The implied subject is 저는 since you’re the one saying coffee is good.)

돌아왔을 때 언니 김밥을 만들고 있었어. – When I returned, my big sister was making kimbap. (*You use 내가 to clarify that it’s you who returned, but the main focus of the sentence is on the sister, who’s doing the main action of making kimbap.)

캐나다 사람아니에요. – I’m not Canadian. (*You use 이/가 because it’s a negative sentence, and you use 난 (나 + 는) to specify that you’re talking about yourself only.)

뉴욕에자동차 많은 것 같아요. – There seems to be lots of cars in New York. (*You use 은/는 to indicate that you’re talking specifically about New York, and you use 이/가 because there’s lots of other things too. Cars just happen to be what you’re talking about right now.)

Hope that helps~~

I think that the people following this blog who are not from Italy still don't understand the fact that Italians are different and don't really want to be associated with what they consider "Italians": all those people living in the USA, of Italian ancestry. We really don't have the same mentality, people from the USA have the mentality of someone from the USA - not really of an Italian who has always and just lived here in Italy. So the concept of PoC is REALLY different.

I know haylor bothered all of us a hell lot but I still don't understand why it affected us so much? Why was it different from the other stunts? Was it because it was a high key stunt? I guess so. Personally, that thing with the paige girl affected me more. Because it was kinda subtle and low-key. The only time I had any 'doubts' was when that straddling pic emerged. Because we were so used to in-your face stunts and then we didn't have the rose and dagger to get us through things

Well, from my perspective, it had to do with seeing Harry and Louis look so incredibly miserable and beaten down. That’s why it bothered me.
