Done and done.

I hope that's not a euphemism.

Lakh and Loaded.

Ambitwistor: Yeah, what's wrong with saying 106?


I think it has to do with the original headline and the word "lakh."

Maybe Hindi doesn't have a word for one million in the way that English doesn't have a word for 100,000?
/Google translate sez million = das laakh, which is ten 100,000

No it won't.  It will just generate more revenue for misappropriation.

You don't know what "word" means?

I mean, English has "pleasure derived by someone from another person's misfortune," but I wouldn't say it has a word for it as German does.

Obviously, anything can be described by using multiple words.  Hence, Hindi has das laakh,but no million.

You guys need to stop and realize that many of us depend on you posters to determine what the articles are espousing so we dont have to read them. I like you so I won't add the string of adjectives that would make "disappointment" much more precise concerning this thread, but needless to say you have to pick up your game.

I miss the New Hampshire Safety Rest Stop and Liquor Stores on I93. I still have a cabinet full of top shelf booze from living there. Prices so low, especially their sales, I don't know how they didn't bankrupt the state.

Double the sin tax and teach people to brew their own.

I just drink till I'm really drunk, then I drink to stay on that level till bedtime. Once I have a good buzz going, the cost of drinking isn't what I'm thinking about.
