@mishellbaker I have some feelings about the frequency versus intensity debate. It's good to practice daily, sure. But to really cement a word or phrase in your memory takes emotion, the stronger the better. So going over phrases as part of a routine is going to take longer than hearing or reading those words as part of art.
@pcrock It's always been about another layer of security for me.
@phildini I'm pleased to see it's back up.
@dani Interesting. I didn't know they were a thing. It reminds me of the Filofax with its swappable inner pages.
Part of me is shaking my head that it's taken me this long to discover German rock that isn't Rammstein. Blutengel and Oomph! are exactly what I need right now.
But this wouldn't have been possible without Duolingo rekindling my interest in learning German, and the amazing amount of foreign-language music and films that are now so readily available. It's never been so easy or fun to learn another language.
UK pol, GE, register to vote! (no negative replies plz) Show more
A GE is on the horizon, tens of thousands of young people are registering to vote, and the tories could be finally kicked out!! (and maybe even lose power for a generation~ :3c).
If you haven't registered to vote, doing so in the next couple of weeks will ensure you are able to vote in time for whenever the next GE comes, it's easy and it only takes a few minutes:
This is the best headline I've seen today:

@BestGirlGrace Paul Chuckle did a book signing a few years ago in my small town. There were queues out the door; probably the most popular book signing event I've known in my town for years. He was nice.

This week I'm going to try making porridge with various milk substitutes. Today, Alpro hazelnut milk (sweetened). It's come out with a good consistency. The flavour is mildly nutty, but it's way too sweet for my taste - I'm used to unsweetened milky porridge without anything in it. So, that's a bust. I wonder if they do an unsweetened version?
