you want to know what i think holds adults back from becoming native speakers?
no, hear me out.
what do children do to learn language? they babble. they say random words. they copy other people even when they don't know what it means. they just *play* with it.
you're never given the ability to just build confidence in your ability by having a million screw-ups, you're always nervous about making a gaffe, and in doing so, you hold yourself back.
Mother, I thank you for putting all of the lovely scratching posts around my home. But the big blue one has a fabric that is not amenable to my claws, and I seem to have to work extra hard in order to gain purchase. It is not helpful for you to redirect me to one of the smaller scratching posts that are already sized for my claws.
Look, I am improving the big blue one. It is a much better scratching post now!
Mother, why do you cry?
I finally declared the Arch-Dragons of the Directions finished.
I still gotta write up the descriptions for Mike and Aury, and make blog/artsite posts, but here's all four of them.

Oh the description is a REALLY good setting...
"The Base is a sprawling military simulation world, mainly consisting of a gigantic industrial/military complex whose map is several hundred miles in diameter. It encompasses a variety of different biomes, with mountains, flat plains, desert, jungle swamps, and ocean all represented, as well as reaching vertically for several hundred miles into space."
Corporations and forced arbitration: the payback (Amazon opts out)
Wait what? Arbitration can be MORE expensive for companies..? Well that's amusing.
I wonder if any other companies will be convinced to drop forced arbitration over time.
PSA US passports
Probably been said before but I just noticed that they changed the requirements for getting your gender marker changed. They NO LONGER require any form of doctors note and are planning on adding more than 2 gender markers! https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/passports/need-passport/selecting-your-gender-marker.html
fallen london: railway
The Smoldering Academic barges into the boardroom of the railway. Construction has ground to a halt for weeks after coming upon some form of time-space disjunction in the middle of the planned route.
“Ah, good to see you. I trust you’ve almost settled the matter of extra funding to route around the block?”
The Academic gestures towards the window. “Absolutely not.” Outside, a train covered in Correspondence glyphs is building steam, a new engine based on the Truthbreaker Turbine spilling out the back. No one dares set foot on it.
“We’re going *through.*”
Bad game idea of the day: A game about summoning eldritch horror entities, but it's based on the process of coaxing a cat. You spend ages meticulously crafting a summoning circle to appeal to their interests, and when they finally incarnate, half the time they inhabit one of your cardboard boxes instead.
