The white robes signify that you don't actually have to do any work or sit on the ground, and that you can pay someone to wash them for you all the time if they do get dirty. Impractical is a way to show that you don't need to work for your food - where do you think fashion like long nails and impossible hairstyles come from?
The new Mac Pro has up to 30 MB of cache inside the processor itself. That's more than the HD in my first Mac. Somehow I'm still running out of space.
Heh, you wish. Although it's probably coming for me sooner or later w the amount of drugs I ingest.
I've heard from a news camera man that red conflicts in some filming settings, I wonder if it's related.
Having been through cancer, I wouldn't wish it on anybody.
Back to the question, I just did a test myself by looking at the same sentence in various colours on a white background, and if account for lighter colours being more difficult to read due to lack of contrast (yellow I could not read at all on a white background), red was definitely the most challenging of the darker colours. Not Chinese hard to read, but definitely more difficult.
BTW, I am fairly seriously dyslexic. Or at least I was when I was younger. Don't really know if the condition has improved or I have gotten better at coping. Reading long numbers or random stings of letters/symbols (long passwords, serial numbers, etc) accurately is almost an impossibility for me. If cut and past didn't exist, my life would be much more difficult.
Ahhh it's so bad my browser seriously cant even copy & paste it.
Anyway I dont get it, what does
круг (красный является комковато- цвет)
Mean, and where did you learn of this dyslexic thing? It would make perfect sense I guess.

Is it "She is moving so slow" or "She is moving so slowly?"
Also, "The plane is ready for landing" or "The plane is ready to land?"
I believe I know the answers, but I've heard the opposite so many times that I'm questioning myself. Just want to confirm.
"Slowly". Though it would be "she moves so slowly" if you're making a general statement, rather than one about just that particular situation.
For the plane, both are okay, but the focus is different: in one, it's about the plane, in the other, it's about the action about to be taken - interestingly either by the crew (transitive verb) or the plane itself (intransitive).
Note that this shifting of focus doesn't work with "take-off", as that's not a transitive verb.
IIUC, this was the result of a word with Native American origins, in a place originally settled by the French, and then once taken over by English speakers, was split between the illiterate locals who would say "Arkansaw" regardless of how it was spelled, and the single, local newspaper magnate insisting it get spelled differently.
There were apparently several decades of argument over it, and pronouncing it like Kansas was one of the contenders during that time.
Both states are named after the Indians who lived there and both were named by the French I beleive.
GOOGLE SEZ YES
The French explorers were the first to write down the name of the Kansa Indians. They also named a river after them. One French explorer put the name “Kansas” on a map. Soon everyone called this place Kansas, after the people who lived here.
The Kansa tribe of Native Americans are closely associated with the Sioux tribes of the Great Plains. The word "Arkansas" itself is a French pronunciation ("Arcansas") of a Quapaw (a related "Kaw" tribe) word, akakaze, meaning "land of downriver people" or the Sioux word akakaze meaning "people of the south wind".
Why do human rear ends have two cheeks? Maybe we used to have one cheek, but our ancient forefathers saw the future of our civilization and kicked our asses to form a second cheek as a reminder.
The two cheeks are part of moving our legs. Those muscles (gluteus minimus, g. medius, and g. maximus, with a few others deep underneath) are so specific to moving each thigh that they needed full separation. And thus the potential for g-strings was created.
And if we didn't have that separation betwixt one and the other, we'd have more problems than deciding whether or not to buy a Squatty Potty.
Thats the contraption that shoots four blasts of flames from under the car, two each side to roast approaching carjackers right? Back then they would approach in gangs from both sides of the vehicle and just shoot you and take your car rather than bother to ask you to get out.
I have plenty of more important things to do, if only I could bring myself to do them....
My pre-electronic lock intracity security device/weapon:
Someone once bumped my bumper in traffic, and being a wary young person when I got out of the car to inspect the damage, I took the club with me. Guy was like, whoa. Lucky for him there was no perceivable damage to my 150k Subaru.
Location: Iowa, how long can this be? Does it really ruin the left column spacing?

Still exists! Still extremely useful! Trading cars with someone? Lock the keys in the car, give them the passcode. Need to grab something from the car but forgot keys inside, no worries, use the passcode! Cold outside, want to leave the car running but locked? No problem, lock it and use the passcode! Pushing the last two buttons together locks the car, so locking it from the outside without digging keys out of a pocket or purse is easy.
