Avatar Tue. 11/20/18 5:26pm Sem:

The word originated in Britain in the early part of the nineteenth century. Until recently, it was believed that the first written evidence was in Charles Dickens’s Sketches by Boz of 1836, where he spelled it phonetically as kye-bosk (Douglas Wilson of the American Dialect Society has recently discovered that the same piece appearewww.worldwidewords.org... in the magazine Bell’s Life in London the year before).

Then anyone catch when a certain world leader was hosting the presidents of Estonia, Lithuania, and Latvia and chided them for allowing the war in Yugoslavia to happen?

still looking for a safer Dalek
Avatar Tue. 11/20/18 6:37pm TDK60:

I didn't catch that NGH. Could it have been a current US leader? (known for lacking geographic knowledge.)

I've been in and out of the room. David you mentioned a Saxony-only holiday tomorrow - what is it? (Sorry if already mentioned).
Avatar Tue. 11/20/18 6:43pm David D:

TDK60: Yes, it is the Day of Repentance and Prayer (Buß- und Bettag), which is not generally put into particular practice except as a day off.

@TDK60, at 03:07 ...
Avatar Tue. 11/20/18 6:43pm northguineahills:

@TDK: Well, a leader that used to hail from my former town.

@Michael: Destroy! Destroy!
(there's a decent NJ hiphop group called Dalek that collaborated w/ Faust).
Avatar Tue. 11/20/18 6:47pm TDK60:

NGH: And isn't your former town a burg called New York? Trying to narrow it down...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/20/18 6:48pm Michael 98145:

i suppose a Day of Repentance and Prayer is no stranger than a day of mandatory gluttony.
Avatar Tue. 11/20/18 6:50pm David D:

Most people here would probably be surprised to see the English literal translation of the holiday. It is usually just thought of that weird day off in the middle of November.
Avatar Tue. 11/20/18 6:51pm northguineahills:

@TDK: it once a hilltop fortress (anglicized as burg) named after a certain William, but Breuckelen works as well, which is part of the small time ville of New Amsterdam.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/20/18 6:52pm Michael 98145:

here, we appreciate each and every day off.
Avatar Tue. 11/20/18 6:52pm northguineahills:

(so this leader, confused the Baltics w/ the Balkans (surprised he knew of either, or Yugoslavia)).
Avatar Tue. 11/20/18 6:53pm David D:

NGH: Why'd they change it?
Avatar Tue. 11/20/18 6:54pm northguineahills:

@Michael: We get so few compared to the rest of the Western world (which we try to convince the rest of the world we're part of)

@David: People just liked it better that way?
Avatar Tue. 11/20/18 6:54pm TDK60:

..so you're talking about a certain fellow from real estate who's a flim-flam man of certain reactionary views? trying to narrow it down...
