    f, b like the proverbial red-headed stepchild. That's one of my favorite things on the internet -
    "Hahaa, you're a dumbass because you mispelled a word!"
    "Um... It's spelled 'misspelled', Irony McFerrous"

    Except I wasn't picking anyone's sentance apart... so it's not half as ironic.

    > sentance

    I'm flogging the late stallion, but it's spelled sentence. The only other word I see misspelled more often than that is "definitely". There's no 'A' in definitely.

    frenchfry164:

    "4xS Thingy that removes jagged lines from your screen by drawing darkened colors around the line to trick your eye into thinking it is a perfect line"


    It could be called "pixel shading" or "smooth_shaping" or

    "smooth_drawing" . we are interested in the name , not
    the definition.

    the name should be able to give out the maximum meaning
    of the definition (in your native or learned language).

    by using an invented name or a foreigh name, dont u think
    it defeats its original purpose(of grasping the definition of
    the object)?.

    like, "homogenious" and "equal"

    > "homogenious"

    What's so confusing about that word (when it's spelled correctly)?

    The English language is the bastardized, slapped-together version of tons of other languages. If we didn't use words from foreign languages, we wouldn't really have English. Get over it - buy a dictionary.
