Moi : je suis une patate u_u
Vous : tu te déprécies encore ?
Moi :

My spouse: what's frustrating you now?
Me: French grammar rules!
My spouse: [Quietly escapes]
Me: If you say, "I'm giving it to him or them", you have to say "it" first, like «Je le lui offre» but if you're saying "I'm giving it to me, us, or you", the "it" comes second, «Je te le offre». Because why would you keep the same word order consistently if you could just add extra rules for no reason??

For every expert, there is an equal and opposite expert, but for every fact there is not necessarily an equal and opposite fact. twitter.com/ThomasSowell/statu

"We all have Schroedinger's Virus now.

Because we cannot get tested, we can't know whether we have the virus or not.

We have to act as if we have the virus so that we don't spread it to others.

We have to act as if we've never had the virus, because if we didn't have it, we're not immune.

Therefore, we both have and don't have the virus. Thus, Schroedinger's Virus.

If you don't understand this joke, you're never allowed to talk about science again."
