Tbh internationally (or at least in Europe) I think the Great Recession will be more remembered, though I can easily see 9/11 being much more remembered in the US

FF. He is not perfect but he is the best Spanish party leader out there (low bar I guess but still)

Also his comeback has to be the most spectacular comeback in Spanish history. If you had told people in November 2016 that only 2 years later Pedro Sánchez would be the Prime Minister you would have been laughed at

Other words:

English: last year, High German: letztes Jahr/voriges Jahr, my dialect: feascht
English: armpit, High German: Achsel, my dialect: Iaxn
English: immediately/quick, High German: sofort/schnell, my dialect: huseg

I actually like Austrian much better than Bavarian. Austrians often spell a T like D, for example Dag instead of Tag ("day").

My favorite Swabian sentence is Mach mal langsam schnell (translation word by word: "Make/go slowly fast!"), what basically means "Hurry Up!". Another beaty is Frucht, what means "fruit" in Standard German. In Swabian, it's another word for "grain" (Standard German: Getreide).

„Tag“ (Day) is actually pronounced like „Dog“ (the animal) 🐕 here.

Just that the „o“ is longer, like in „doggy“ (without the y).


Another cool word is „znaxt“ (Pinzgauerisch-German).

It is a word that doesn’t even exist in Standard-German and means something like „a while ago“.

The time frame is roughly 1-3 weeks ago, but not earlier or longer ago (because otherwise you’d say „a week ago“ or „a month ago“).

Another word is „potatoes“ (Standard German: Kartoffeln 🥔). But here we call them Erdäpfel (earth apples or soil apples).

I think Hart would have won without the scandal. He stood for youth and a new direction without the problems Dukakis had. Poppy, despite being a highly competent politician, was actually a lackluster candidate who won on a combination of Reagan's popularity and Dukakis' disastrous campaign.

✓ Senator Gary Hart (D-CO)/Senator John H. Glenn (D-OH): 291 EV. (49.74%)
Vice President George Herbert Walker Bush (R-TX)/Senator J. Danforth Quayle (R-IN): 247 EV. (48.31%)

If trans women are women, why have separate options for transgenders? Shouldn't a trans women just click "female?" Why separate them?
Ignoring the grammatically incorrect use of transgender as a noun, my guess is that due to their prevalence on Atlas, trans women are separated from cis women to show what percentage of women on Atlas are trans. Why cis is in parentheses and trans is not is beyond me.

Yeah this is basically the reason. It is a good "crosstab" to have because of their comparatively high number (just look at how cis and trans women are tied here while irl the former outnumber the latter what, 500 to 1?)

As for cis in parenthesis, no idea why I did that tbh; maybe I should have removed them
