I May Be Crazy But...: Forbidden Doughnut: /IIRC "corn" has a different meaning in British English.

Most of the world think it means "grain", I believe. They call corn 'maize', the crazy foreigners.


I don't know of many people outside the indeginous peoples of the Americas who refer corn to maize

The ones who learn American English, maybe. Also, I assume you're deliberately leaving out Spanish speakers.

One of my earliest experiences with the British using a word I was familiar with to describe something completely different was when I was watching a British television show/movie where the characters are talking about the "corn" surrounding them, even though it was obvious to even my young eyes that they were standing in a wheat field.

Years later, I had another similar experience while trying to use heated "paraffin" to clean a motorcycle chain, not realizing that "paraffin" in British English means "kerosene". So I heated up some "Gulfwax"-brand paraffin canning wax on the stove and dumped the chain in. It actually did clean the chain, but it made a nasty mess when the wax dried.

The exports of Libya are numerous in amount. One thing they export is corn, or as the Indians call it, "maize". Another famous Indian was "Crazy Horse". In conclusion, Libya is a land of contrast. Thank you.

You were confused because you don't really speak English. Corn is the English word (even in American English) that collectively describes the cereal grains: wheat, oats, maze, barley, flax, etc. A more refined usage is to denote the primary cereal crop of a region, as in, "we will begin to harvest our corn next week."

Obviously there's more than one definition for the term "infertile"

"cutie" eh? Perhaps a bit cute for a British chick but certainly nothing to look at here. Size 10? Isnt that seriously fat? She doesnt look that fat. My wife has quite a few extra pounds (145 at 5ft 3in) and she is only size 6. Do the Brits have a different sizing scheme or something?

IAMTHEINTARWEBS: Ya know, compared to the "before" Photos She is quite attractive.
\she needs a new hairstyle for that five head though.


I was thinking that as well. Lots of fat women have male pattern baldness and I was guessing she's actually balding at the pate.

Corn is the term used in the US, Canada, and Australia to refer to maize. It may have other valid meanings in those same regions as many words do, but the primary one is for maize. Considering that those three countries are 1st, 10th, and 13th respectively in the world for number of English speakers AND the US has more than twice the English speakers as India who is 2nd, I would put forth that the majority of the English speaking world uses the term corn oppositely than the way that people in the UK use it.

Better luck next time, Big Macs.

What does that mean in American English? I can't tell from the picture.
 
2012-10-07 11:41:05 AM  
Okay, how many times do we have to hear that a Fark headline promising a Sun or Mail article about a cutie is false and misleading? The thing is that the girl did shed a lot of pounds and is looking much better and healthier than when she was popping Big Macs in her mouth. It's a good news story, but it's also a story which doesn't merit front page treatment.

To add to her joy, Fraser took her away to a lodge for a long weekend - and proposed.

Stephanie says: "It was really romantic but the best part was, during that weekend my periods came back . . . "


WUT.

Didn't she read the warning labels on the Big Macs, clearly informing her this product may cause obesity?

She looks like Stephanie Sage of porn fame.
 
2012-10-07 12:57:37 PM  

Jon iz teh kewl: MasterAdkins: So Big Macs really had nothing to do with it, the fact that she was eating 4000 calories a day is what made her overweight.

it was the special sauce that did her in. Ronald's special birth control recipe.


If only that were true, think how different the world would be.

KrispyKritter: HotIgneous Intruder: Unfortunately, this issue is just in remission.
She'll always be a fat girl with fat girl issues.
This has absolutely nothing to do with physical appearance.

/I know this from first-hand experience of being involved with women like her.

there is a special self loathing that comes with being overweight. "issues" pegs it pretty well. IMHO any behavior taken to the extreme is indicative of an underlying situation that is not being addressed. people who have to run several miles a week are just cursed (blessed) with a more socially acceptable mental illness.


You sound fat.

If "several miles" means around six, then running that far takes about an hour. That is hardly an excessive amount of exercise for an entire week.

I've never understood "comfort eating". Whenever I get stressed out I lose my appetite.

JackieRabbit citation need for obesity shutting down ovulation . This being so then population growth in Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia most of Socal as well as every trailer park in the USA would be zero ! Maybe Honey boo boos mom would not have so many children if that worked. Rather the opposite is true under weight over stressed female stop ovulation as a response to hormone imbalance. This being said it is the Sun after all and ant basis in reality is excluded . Over weight over rested female are not the ones having a problem with not being in a family way so to speak.

I actually lost weight one summer working at Mcdonalds, so I'm getting a kick...

No, really.I was low level management, which in Canada are the only staff that get free food(any lower level and it's half priced meal). They had chicken fajitas then and the chicken was skinless. We were limited in the amount of food we could take, and I never have much cared for fries(occasionally I like them, but usually skip them) Anyways, I'd order two fajitas, and make them myself, skip the tortilla shell and only have green pepper, onion and a tiny bit of ranch.I stopped drinking the pop, opting for juice or water. I walked all summer to work due to nice weather and did the the heavier duty work of product recieving a couple days a week. I dropped 17 pounds.

Clicking on The Sun or Daily Mail links over the last couple years have wearied me. Their writing is saccharine, their stories are worse than 1980's National Enquirer, and in this way they are like owning a five-pound bag of M&M's: I love consuming the first 28 or so, then I feel over-
sugared.

No more Daily Mail or Sun for me; they suck the syrup pipe.
 
2012-10-07 11:45:54 PM  
Why does the Sun keep parading these moronic liberals in front of their cameras for their "blah blah my obsession with vintage denim caused me to go on welfare" -type stories? The mind boggles.

Hahahaha, I agree Stone is an abortion and I'm always lost when they use it (I've figured it's like around 40-50 pounds?), but you've got to be trolling with the pound thing.

British sizes are higher than NA sizes. A British 10 comes in at a 6 in the US.

That said, no, size 10 is NOT seriously fat. It's the kind of thing that varies from person to person. For someone just at five feet, yes, size 10 probably means they are too heavy, whereas a person 5.6 could be about right and a person 6 feet would look pretty lean. Muscle tone and levels also factors.

I was. Sometimes it's fun to just throw something crazy out there and see who takes the bait. Man, I really thought folks would jump on that, but I guess I was too obvious. Ah well, better luck next time.

Actually the American system is one of the few in the world that still uses pounds. 95% of the world uses kilo, which technically is a more precise and accurate measurement
