The Philippines has a rich vocabulary, with modified words from languages such as English and Spanish. The fun parts are the slang words, which are invented by locals and continue to evolve through time. To better understand the Filipino language and culture, explore the awesome local slang words listed here.

Kilig (ki-lig)

When you watch romantic films or catch your crush staring at you, what exactly do you feel? In most cases, people will describe the feeling as a kind of loved-up giddiness. But in the Philippines, people refer to this feeling as kilig. Having no direct translation in English, the word describes that butterfly-in-your-stomach kind of excitement during a romantic encounter.

Gigil (gi-gil)

Gigil is another Filipino word which has no direct translation in English, but is commonly used in everyday conversations. You’ll usually hear this from someone who feels overwhelmed by a situation and thus gets the uncontrollable desire to squeeze something. It may refer to a positive feeling – for instance, a Filipino woman who sees a cute, chubby baby would feel a desire to pinch its cheeks out of gigil. Yet in some cases, the word may also refer to something negative – gigil sa galit wherein the person feels extreme anger towards another person or situation.

Susmariosep (soos-mar-yo-sep)

Susmariosep is a combination of the shortened names of the Holy Trinity – Jesus, Mary, and Joseph. It’s an abrupt reaction you’ll most likely hear from Filipino adults who’ve just learned some big or shocking news. For example, your halo-halo shipment just melted in the sun – susmariosep!

I have about 160k in savings and investments. Im single, not planning on having kids, no debt.

Has any anon taken the camper pill? I wanna buy a cheap used one and just live in an RV park around the south. I dont really give a fuck about owning a home, having a mortage, etc.

Pros/Cons? I wanna get out of this clown world and live like a nomad.

I was gonna do this...dont. here's why I say dont.
In your mind you're doing it to save money but it doesnt equate to much of a savings. Campers dont have access to the plumbing grid for starters. That means emptying septic but also constantly having a resupply of water for basic shit like washing dishes and showering. So you have to moderate water usage and spend money/time getting water.
That's just water. Almost everything else in the camper is like that. You need to have gas on site to heat it, and if you run out you gotta buy more. In the winter, youd better hope you can get to it so you dont freeze.
Now a small used trailer of decent quality will cost between $1500-$10,000. So the trailer itself isnt too bad.
Now you gotta get land. You want a lot? They're hard to find, you typically have to apply, and now you're paying lot fees, basically paying rent.
Want to buy land yourself to park it on? Any parcel that has access to the power/water grid will cost upwards of $15,000 for like a half acre, unless you're out in the desert or some shit. A more realistic price for a parcel with grid access would be upward of $20k, and again, that's for a small ass, less than 1 acre parcel.
For a few acres you're looking at pretty serious cake.
All told, you're getting into it for about $35k as a charitable low estimate, along with constant resupplying costs in terms of time, money and stress.
Or
You can spend $50k for a fixer upper cottage in most states across the country on a rural half acre/1 acre parcel. Itll have heat, water and electric grid access. Throw $10k into it and you've got a livable home for $60k with way less resupplying costs over the long term.
I will still get a camper for trips, and for a SHTF scenario. But I definitely rethought living in one as a home.

Millions of years of evolution led to this. A survivor - unclouded by conscience, remorse, or delusions of morality.

Its competitors think that they are better because they harbor some abstraction called "intellect". But, does intellect help them survive as well as physical and organic resilience? A resilience that is not reliant on the collective, on a SOCIETY, but a resilience that is baked into DNA, a resilience that is baked in from birth.

Andy Griffith is an American icon. In this video, we consider his performance in "A Face In The Crowd", where he plays a character that is completely antithetical to the role he's most known for.

...whom he never married, owned a house with or had kids with.

>TORONTO — A wealthy businessman will have to pay more than $50,000 a month in spousal support for 10 years to a woman with whom he had a long-term romantic relationship even though they kept separate homes and had no children together, Ontario’s top court has ruled.

How is this reality?

How are women entitled to men's money after they break up?

TL:DR a foreign power or a domestic insurgency could easily fuck up our grid so that nationwide power outages lasting months would result. Screenshots of his analysis to follow.

This widely-known picture shows a 9-year-old girl running naked on a road after being severely burned on her back by napalm on the 8th of June 1972, near Trang Bang, Tay Ninh province, South Vietnam.

Many people assumed it was the Americans that carried out the bombing. However, the fact is no Americans were directly involved in this tragic incident. The ground troops were all South Vietnamese soldiers and the aircraft dropping napalm was flown by South Vietnamese pilots.

U.S. Navy and Air force dropped many more napalm canisters and presumably killed/fried many more people during the Vietnam war than South Vietnamese forces did. But not that day, not that village and not that 9-year-old girl.

——————————————-

Another myth concerning Napalm:

It was first produced during World War II by adding thickening agents to petroleum or gasoline, resulting in a mixture which burnt longer and was easier to aim when used in flamethrowers. The original thickening agents were aluminium naphthenate and aluminium palmitate, hence the name “Napalm”.

However, Napalm used during the Vietnam war contained none of the original naphthenate and palmitate ingredients. Instead polystyrene (styrofoam) and benzene were used as a solvent to solidify the gasoline.

This new Napalm had several advantages over its World War II ancestor. First, it was safer to handle, you could put out a cigarette in it - no problem. Second, when it burnt, it burnt way longer. Third, it was stickier and adhered to the target/victim. And fourth, it produced a much higher temperature output.
