¡Hola!
Soy nerd, que me interesa a aprender idiomas.

@elekk.xyz se puede escuchar cuando despotrico sobre los y .

@booktoot despotrico sobre los libros. y va a ir aquí. 😀

Me defiendo bastante bien en . Estudio .

My native language is English, but I'm going to try to avoid using that. 😉

Has had some magic rehaul since their old days? Some of these (eg: Hungarian, Icelandic, Finnish) only have 1 CD, but others have 3-5. Have they not made the rest yet, or are they just calling it good?

If I wanted to learn, say, Swahili, I wanted to go all the way!

I mean technically there's a bunch but...

they're on Hoopla. My library doesn't pay for a lot of Hoopla checkouts, and I'd have to stream them. I have a generous data plan (for the time being), but not _that_ generous.

Plus Pimsleur (at least the 2000 version) outright encourages you to take it out of the library (and rip it? it didn't say that part, but it had to know.)

No YOU'RE looking at CDs and seeing if you can get your library to buy them!

It's not that I'm not enjoying (though I'm frustrated sometimes) and is still good, but I'm feeling wanderlust again. Thoughts like "How about " or "God, I'd really love to take up / / " Oh no~! 😱

Listening to a different than usual made me realize I probably should learn the special characters (and @) that consist of a url. Well, tbh I'll probably learn them by hearing them 5 million times. I mean we all learned "colon backslash backslash" eventually.

Constructing houses from tree is considered a good way to store carbon for long term. I've been thinking about in what extent the same arguments hold for books.

How much carbon does one book hold up, and how big percentage of the original tree ends up in paper? How long on average are books stored before they're discarded (and either burned or left to rotten in landfill)?

So in sum: are paper books more like storage than consumption?

@Stoori Trees release stored carbon when cut down. All the work they do when they are alive is completely reversed when they fall. So, books are actually pretty destructive. Which is why you should always buy used books.
