Here's how this works: Talk about something that is as unrelated to gamemaker studio as you possible can. The person who is the most unrelated, after every 5 entrees, wins.I will be the first judge but the winner is the next judge.

Armenia has 2.1 million hectares of agricultural land, 72% of the country's land area. Most of this, however, is mountain pastures, and cultivable land is 480,000 hectares (452,900 hectares arable land, 27,300 hectares in orchards and vineyards), or 16% of the country's area. In 2006, 46% of the work force was employed in agriculture (up from 26% in 1991), and agriculture contributed 21% of the country's GDP. In 1991 Armenia imported about 65 percent of its food.

unity - /ˈjuːnɪti/
noun

1. the state of being united or joined as a whole.
2. the number one.
3. each of the three dramatic principles requiring limitation of the supposed time of a drama to that occupied in acting it or to a single day (unity of time), use of one scene throughout (unity of place), and concentration on the development of a single plot (unity of action).

Out of the first five replies, Lukasmah won. There were a lot of really great ones (I had a feeling someone would say Unity) and that was a tough choice.

According to old man Jenkins, scissors don't smell nearly as good as they did back in his day. He tells me that there was once a time you could buy a pair of scissors from the hardware store and the aroma would bring a smile on your face.

In Old Japanese, there weren't any nasal syllable endings. Japanese syllables consisted of a consonant+vowel (CV) structure. Some hypothesize that the vowel may be nasalized or oral (a normal vowel). This hypothesis is supported by the fact that loanwords from Chinese tend to end in either "i" or "u", depending on the preceding vowel (vowel harmony).

Compare for example: Middle Chinese *liung > Modern Japanese ryuu.

The Middle Chinese coda -ng translated to a long vowel (uu) in Japanese. Supporters of the theory deduce that the long vowel is a remnant of what used to be an oral vowel+ nasal vowel cluster. As a result, it was probably *ryuũ in Old Japanese (/u/ denotes the oral vowel "u" while /ũ/ denotes the nasal vowel "u").

Then, by Modern Japanese, the nasalization on all the vowels are lost, creating "ryuu". Thus, supporters of the theory conclude that Old Japanese had nasal vowels.

"Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo" is a grammatically correct sentence in American English, used as an example of how homonyms and homophones can be used to create complicated linguistic constructs. It has been discussed in literature in various forms since 1967, when it appeared in Dmitri Borgmann's Beyond Language: Adventures in Word and Thought.

The sentence uses three distinct meanings of the word buffalo: the city of Buffalo, New York; the uncommon verb to buffalo, meaning "to bully, harass, or intimidate" or "to baffle"; and the animal, bison (often called buffalo in North America). The sentence can be phrased differently as "Those buffalo(es) from Buffalo that are intimidated by buffalo(es) from Buffalo intimidate buffalo(es) from Buffalo."

Sorry people, but this topic is closed. Some members don't know where the line is and sadly they spoil the fun for everyone else. Don't blame me, blame them for being offensive idiots. Closed.
