If you break it up in the form "Eaisch pnaeiea cgkque bh cieagh podstt ditf" Google Translate will claim that it's transliterated-Arabic (عايزك بنية كجقق به سياجه بدست ديتف) for "I want a structure like a fenced-in fence."
That seems reasonable, right?
Yeah that's why I had my doubts in particular. So far I don't recognise this language :(
But that still doesn't sound like Arabic to me
Edit 2: Arabic-speaking mate didn't recognise it either, at least it's not his dialect for sure
So it wants to have a structure that resembles a fence within a fence? Like a concentric castle, as it were.
Clearly this is a call for greater security or fortification.
I, too, would like a structure in the manner of a fence that is itself fenced-in.
So this has inspired me to go do a bit of digging on the guy's name and, well...
So twice in 2012 and 2013, long name answered a thread about how you got your nation's name claiming that if you mix the letters but remove the second capital (which would be the B), then it is related to the company which he worked at that time for.
.... Which raises even more questions. What is a Eaischpnaeieacgkque hcieaghpodsttditf? And what distinct meaning does that have?
Meanwhile, there are a few other clues lying around as to his influences. He regularly uses the Cyrillic script in threads to name locations within the nation, such as a province and the capital city, which is also matched by his entry in the NS wiki (which doesn't have an entry on me so clearly must be worthless btw lol) (also is here for reference:http://nswiki.org/index.php?title=Eaischpnaeieacgkque_Bhcieaghpodsttditf). Now, that could be one of about a dozen notable languages but does also narrow down the list.
Not that that's his own country, since he claimed in multiple occasions to be American, and I don't have a reason to doubt that.
Also, man do I wish I had bought Post-Master General back in like 2015 when I asked him about it. Would have saved me a bit of time- and gotten a more concrete answer.
I am sincerely impressed by your attitude Chan Island. Although I got most of the bolded text on NS Wiki (since I speak Russian and thus more or less understand other Slavic languages that are also used in pretitle) it didn't give me any clue. Neither I can imagine his company name whatever it is. Besides, I've always been bad at charades.
No, the long Welsh name is
Iím not Welsh but somehow I am actually able to pronounce it very well, and I use it sometimes to practice certain harder sounds in the IPA.
not welsh, but being a fan of railways, and especially narrow gauge railways, i've seen the station sign for llanfair about a zillion times,
and i've heard generally the llanfair part is about as much as anyone normally tries to pronounce. its enough to know what place they're talking about.
other words for the amusement of being long exist, i can think of two of them, but neither are longer.
a castle within a castle would only be sustainable long term if it encompassed a fully functional and self sustaining ecosystem.
which is essentially what you would need for a multi-generational transit to most other solar systems likely to have a life supporting planet.
So 2 tourists have just got off the train in Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch. Walking through town they decide to stop for something to eat. One asks the person serving them "Please help settle our argument. Could you very slowly and clearly pronounce the name of where we are?"
The server gives an exasperated sigh and replies "Bur...ger...King."
In other news, it appears that if you want a fenced-in fence you should look no further than the Fenced in Fence Company of Wilmington, Delaware.
Eh, Iíd describe the <ll> as an /s/ but with your toungue touching the sides of the mouth, to make a slushy sound.
And as for <ch>, it makes a /χ/ (uvular voiceless fricative)
I got into the rmb without context and thought I was having a stroke until I realized we were talking about long name
Alright folks, I have sent an email to not one, but two people I admire asking for help with something on their area of expertise. Today was a productive day.
I have really been enjoying this back-and-forth on the RMB on the origins of this name, and I admit I myself got tangled up in it a bit, using anagram solvers and decoders to try to decipher it any which way... nothing meaningful ever came up. Then I also dug into this user's posts like Chan Island did and noticed that they have again claimed in an IC context that the capitol building was named... a very long word - which is actually the full time of titin.
I honestly don't think they really work for an IRL company with a name related to their nation name; if anything, they were probably referring to an IC construct.
Not czech, can confirm that one. (I'm Czech)
Mine google transtalator says: I want a structure like a fenced-in enclosure with a badass detail
But as I looked at his motto: Kdyz jde do tuheho, tezke pouziti jaderne valky
Which IS DEFINETLY czech and means: when it gets tough, heavy use of atomic war,
Although in a factbook it says:
'The actual national motto in "Kdyě jde do tuhťho, těěkť pouěitŪ jadernť vŠlky." This means "When the going gets tough, the tough use nuclear war."'
So I'm afraid that, it's name is random keyboard typing
or cussing ea
EA Is chpnaeieacgkque Bhcieaghpodsttditf
obviously a fan of cgi myself, as its what i like to play with making. (blender 2.79, on my (themnax) fur affinity page)
not a big fan of what i've seen of americanization of anime though. nor do i ever get to see anything new until its years if not decades later.
favorite trek itterations were ds9 and veeger. real fiction about science is something that still takes reading, because media appeal to widest possible audience generally tends to loose sight of the concept entirely. still pretty eye candy though.
Hi there! I'm sorry if this was shamelessly plugged here before, but I would just like to share some of the pictures I have taken outside, hehe. They span across years - some as old as 2014, some as new as like a week ago!
I do hope you enjoy! <3
So this is going to be a new non-ICly thing! As some of you can tell by now, I do a lot of photography in my free time! Almost all the time it is a hobby thing - there were times when I do take photos with my family, or friends... and even then, I would not receive any money from it*. Not that I want to, actually. I do this for fun first and foremost, and being able to hone my skills just by taking a lot of photos have been nothing short of fantastic! And hey, you're your own boss in a hobby. I get free reign on where I want to go, and where I want to take shots!
* If in the event that I entered a photo for a competition with actual money involved, I will NOT be using NationStates to promote or involve it in any way, and will not tell about the contest until it's over.
My current equipment is either my phone (Vivo X50+), or my DSLR first and foremost - Nikon D5100, attached with 18-200 mm Tamron Lens.
WARNING: Photos are extremely large and might drain your data. Might be slow too! ^^; Each photo, unless panoramas or cropped, is typically 4-6 MB big.
