*mass effect 1 voice* ENEMIES EVERYWHERE
Let’s face it - English is a crazy language. There is no egg in eggplant nor ham in hamburger; neither apple nor pine in pineapple. English muffins weren’t invented in England or French fries in France. Sweetmeats are candies while sweetbreads, which aren’t sweet, are meat. We take English for granted. But if we explore its paradoxes, we find that quicksand can work slowly, boxing rings are square and a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig.
And why is it that writers write but fingers don’t fing, grocers don’t groce and hammers don’t ham? If the plural of tooth is teeth, why isn’t the plural of booth beeth? One goose, 2 geese. So one moose, 2 meese? One index, 2 indices? Doesn’t it seem crazy that you can make amends but not one amend? If you have a bunch of odds and ends and get rid of all but one of them, what do you call it?
If teachers taught, why didn’t preachers praught? If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat? In what language do people recite at a play and play at a recital? Ship by truck and send cargo by ship? Have noses that run and feet that smell? How can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same, while a wise man and a wise guy are opposites?
You have to marvel at the unique lunacy of a language in which your house can burn up as it burns down, in which you fill in a form by filling it out and in which an alarm goes off by going on. English was invented by people, not computers, and it reflects the creativity of the human race (which, of course, isn’t a race at all). That is why, when the stars are out, they are visible, but when the lights are out, they are invisible."

Don’t trust anything, or anyone. That reindeer is plotting against all of us >:|

he has that look in his eye
matter fact I don’t trust that elf either
or that kid
The Roaring Heights Live Broadcast begins soon!
Shelves are great on their own, but they’re also great for creating one-of-a-kind furniture!
Use “MoveObjects On” cheat and hold “Alt” key for more sensitive placement/rotation/height shift.
1. Thin Hallway Table
Sure, thin hallway tables came with Supernatural EP, but if you’re…
Some really great idea here!
THIS IS FABULOUS!!!
CONFESSION: I REALLY dislike the “short humans with pointy ears” argument when it comes to the Elves’ appearance. Dwarves look like short Vikings but nobody complains about them. I’m glad we’re back to pretty, pointy-eared humans in Inquisition instead of the Na’vi-Sheep people.
I feel like one of the few who actually really liked DA2’s elf design.
Count me in with your group, Sparrow! I never had an issue with DA2 elves. Honestly, I thought their unique look was lovely.
I feel like DA2 gave them a bit of uniqueness, so you can also count me among that group
VICTUS! ILU!!! :’D
I agree with the love for them! It was great they stood out & apart from humans!
