You should try making homemade almond butter! Just the way you like :D

homemade almond butter sounds soooo good, i've been wanting to make it for quite a while. have you made it before? o:

Yes I have! I followed a recipe, but basically you just let the food processor go at the almonds for around 20-25 minutes until it's nice and creamy.

Have you ever looked at something written in English and just think "That's a lot of "I""?
It's necessary most of the time, can't really say a sentence like this without "I". It just sounds weird. There isn't a lot of ways to eliminate "I" in a sentence.
Expressions like "I think", "I feel" have to have that "I" there. That can be avoided by using something else like "in my opinion" (not really interchangeable) or utilizing passive voice but that can be hard and odd-sounding.
It must be weird to see this brought up but when I write something in English I keep trying to get rid of as many of them as possible because it's not common to see this much "I" in my native language.
"That's just how it works. It has been like this since forever and it's fine." - me, probably.
I realize that I always tend to lead the conversation to myself. I think, I believe, this happened to me. I hate that. It's like I cannot form a thought without talking about myself. Sigh, what a self centered person I am

I remember thinking about this, but with E instead. I suppose talking without E might be easier than talking without I.

Anyways, I've grown to hate coding and I'm probably going to try and switch out of it soon after. If not, then I'll probably melt or something.

I know of two works of fiction which follow this constraint: A Void (La Disparition) and Gadsby. Additionally, if you look for it you can find a virtual sub-community which avoids using that fifth glyph fully, but I can't link it as doing so would show that sign in this post.

Hey, uh, @Lawly, from my observing experience in regional message boards and forum posts back in NationStates that is malicious editing of another fellow user's writing, I am not upset, just being very cautious and curious.

Konami has to get its shit together and add Japannese audio to Duel Links (PC) like they have in the mobile version. Please before Sartorius's unlock event. WHO is voiced by DIO!

It's difficult to see how that could be taken as malicious, to make that post work one would have to either filter the letter 'e' or remove the quote entirely, which would have made things even more awkward. Nevertheless, your worries are understandable, so rest assured that under no circumstances will future posts made by me contain edited quotes of any kind.

Spoiler

Unfortunately, due to an oversight my previous post contained an 'e' in the quote, so my efforts were in vain. Please take this post in its stead, which employs plenty of 'e's but is devoid of the ninth letter being used as a first-person pronoun. @水面の朧月 is correct: it does sound odd.

I expect some marketing intern threw the idea out as a joke, and the manager, not having any clue what 8ch is and just wanting to make his bosses happy, agreed without any hesitation. Of course, at this point it was too late to say it was a joke, since the manager is clearly busy and not in the mood for joking around. So now the intern is panicing trying to make this as professional as they can.

I'd been thinking that the account was hacked since a number of the replies seemed unproffesional for a PR person. Your theory sounds much more interesting though.

You *could* use it for drawing. Though if you're, like me, devoid of artistic talent, then I'm not too sure - mine's just been gathering dust :/

It's not that kind of tablet haha :P
Though I haven't read an actual novel in a while. I'll probably drop a few hours into a Witcher book!

I'll see about this. If I don't get any better selling's always an option!
