I doubt it. I'm sure I'll be corrected if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure that part of the reason that 'cock gobbler' is used is because it circumvents the swearing filter. It's accepted by moderators because of it being an initiation thing. The phrase I'm hatcheting in to every post is censored, so as long as the posts I make are also relevant to the topic, I can't see why it would warrant a ban

 

Jesus, Allah, Muhammed, Zeus etc are c*nts

 

 

Ahh thats just the thing sometimes he/she posts the cock gobbling sh*t and thats it. He/she doesn't even post anything relating to the topic.

 

I guess I better ask a question myself to stay on topic.

 

Whats 1 + 1?

I remember that GTA-King joked about it and he would reference that he wasn't talking about the.. Human term, but rather a cockerel.
Whether that is the reason or not that GTA-King got kicked out, I have no idea. :p

Hey guys, I have a very silly doubt but somehow would improve my English.

 

I have confusion as to which sentence (below) conveys the meaing more appropriatly:

1) My leg is paining with all the running I did today.

2) My leg is in pain with all the running I did today.

 

Another one:

3) My heart is paining with all that happened in my past.

4) My heart is in pain with all that happened in my past.

 

Which option sounds better (in pairs)?

For me I feel in the first option I feel that the first sentence conveys the meaning better whilst in the 2nd option I feel that the 2nd sentence conveys the meaning better. 

 

Although it isn't exactly grammatically incorrect, it makes a little more sense to use paining in the first option and in pain in the 2nd option.

 

It really doesn't matter either-way in my opinion.

While paining is a legitimate word, I've never heard an American or British English speaker say that a part of their body is "paining" them. I do know some Caribbean guys who say it though. I'm a cock gobbler and I like to gobble cock.

In my country, we say "Is paining". Even my English teacher said the same, and we follow British English, so, I guess "Is paining" is the correct term for British English.

"Paining" doesn't work in either context.

There's no clear distinction between active and passive verbs in English but in order to use one in a context like this one you have to specify what the verb refers to. "My heart is paining" doesn't make sense because you have a verbal noun verb applied as if it were an active verb. "My heart is paining me" is grammatically correct but a little clunky. "Is in pain" works better in both contexts.

While it is a word, no one with English as their first language would say "my leg is paining" - that doesn't make sense and isn't used correctly as a statement - "my leg is in pain" is the best option.

 

For paining to be used, something like this would work "my leg is really paining me today" but this is more of an expression of aggravation or annoyance. You wouldn't go to the doctor and say this, but you might shout it at your friend because the pain is getting you down or upset.

Oh. Well, maybe that's why I always say it. English isn't my first language and all my teachers were Indians so, I guess that's why they always said "Paining".

Sure, "paining" sounds very unusual but so does "in pain". It somewhat makes the real verb abstract. I mean it could work if it were a story where authors want to express their ideas in form of emotions.

 

As for the passive form, it agian depends how each person says. I don't normally hear people talking in passive form. Inserting "me" sounds obvious.

If I am the speaker telling that my leg is paining, then it is obvious that it me who is doing the action. :bored:

 

And again, it all depends how mature you want your speech to be. As for daily life situations, it doesn't fits well.

No, it doesn't depend on anything. This is one of those situations where the foibles of the language will often confuse non-native speakers. Which isn't to say that people won't understand you, but it isn't what would be considered a grammatically correct or normal use of English.

Active verbs need to be applied to an individual or circumstance. The problem here is the word "paining" isn't a real verb but a verbal noun. "Pain" itself is a verb (albeit a passive one, "it pains me to...") but "paining" is not. The same sentence makes sense if you use a proper active verb- "my heart is burning"- but because "paining" isn't an active verb (it isn't a tangible thing but a description) you need to specify what it applies to otherwise it makes no sense.

"Hurting" is the closest active verb substitute for pain/paining. Not all words ending -ing are verbs!

So, how would you say to a doctor if you had some pain in your leg? Would it be:

"My leg has been paining since this morining"

or

"My leg has been in pain since this morining"?

 

Yes, I changed the tense here but the context is the same.

 

I can feel that the second sentence somehow personifies the subject "leg"; which is quite absurd. :lol:

So my birthday is coming on the 13th and my mom is going to bake a cake. I am stuck on what flavors I want and here is what I need to know:

- What is white cake and is it good? If it is, would creme cheese frosting or chocolate frosting good on it
- should I get french vanilla with chocolate frosting?

-Any really good cake suggestions other than those that I could have for my birthday?

Help much appreciated! :D

I believe white cake is made without some part of the egg. The yolk, probably. I guess that makes it healthier in terms of cholesterol, but I'm sure it doesn't taste bad.

 

I'd say get french vanilla instead of white cake if you're going for taste, and as for frosting, I'd say chocolate. It balances out the flavors nicely. Cream cheese frosting would be best on a red velvet cake, which is basically just a red colored chocolate cake.

 

And yeah, as for a suggestion, red velvet is one of my favorites (red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting), so I'd recommend that if you like chocolate and cheesecake.

Thanks for the help. :^: I had red velvet last year (funny story, my parents had already bought me a chocolate cake last year and I did not know that and asked for red velvet. Ended up with two cakes haha). I may go with french vanilla and chocolate but I am thinking about red velvet with cream frosting cheese. Last years red velvet had basic frosting, so I can only imagine how good it would be with cream cheese frosting.

I would just say "my legs hurt because of all the running I did today"

"My heart is broken because of all that happened in the past"

Their dense fat acts as insulation for them. Also, the steam from the hamburgers they eat keeps them warm.
