2021.09.16 19:51 NeutronMagnetar "Somber" as a Verb
I feel like I have definitely run across "sombered" as a verb in online writing, but when looking it up in the dictionary, I didn't find a verb form, hence this rabbit hole.
After a quick Google-Ngram check, I thought I was mistaken, but then I realized that "somber" appears to be the Americanization of "sombre." Now "sombred" does show up in ngram with a substantial peak around the 1820s, which I haven't been able to ascertain why. (I would love it if anyone has an explanation for that). I also found some works that use it as a verb or past participle, with the oldest being in Letters of C.and M. Lamb., dated 1796.
But the rabbit hole deepens because I was wondering if this verb usage comes from french. Short answer no. Long answer, there used to be a verb "sombrer" in French that fell out of usage in the middle ages.
So how did the verb form evolve? Is it a holdover from French that fell out of favor, or it did evolve again from the adjective? And has anyone else seen "sombered" being used as a verb?

2021.09.16 19:51 listenless What's the upside case for HOOD?
I know the downside:
- Policymakers are scrutinizing practices core to Robinhood's business model, payment-for-order-flow (PFOF), whereby brokers route retail orders to wholesale brokers in return $. My understanding is that in most countries this is illegal.
- regulatory penalties right and left ($130 M this year)
- Hostile regulator and government. HOOD is touring colleges giving incentives for kids to join.
- A drawdown will cause some pain for kids over-leveraged with options there... public outcry...
- meme stock??
- PFOF is deemed legal.

Hi, I've recently joined the police and I've been told to change my name on FB.
Have you changed your name on social media and if you have in what way have you changed it? Subtle name change or created a new identity all together? 😛
The only thing I can think to do it is put my middle name as my surname!

2021.09.16 19:51 Academic_Ad_6885 Could someone please answer? When compared to other creatures, why do some produce a huge number of new species while others produce a relatively small number? Also in evolutionary time, why do distinct lines of organisms (species, genera, or families) have higher or lower extinction rates?
2021.09.16 19:51 princessbannanahamok Why so much PC hate?
Was just going through this sub and realised that everyone seems to shit in her too much. Granted she is not doing as well in the west as Bollywood - she's no Meryl Streep, but atleast she's trying.
Do people not realise how intense the competition there is? Especially when you're brown and the only indian character majority American audience remember is Apu.
I agree her accent may come across as fake but it's been the same here in bollywood too.
Would love to hear about more genuine reason.

2021.09.16 19:51 MsFired Can you use a Guardian as a food source?
So, like, I've been incinerated, shredded into little pieces, crushed, fallen from great heights and broke bones I didn't even know I had, and yet my Ghost is always able to bring me back. He doesn't use my original body though, instead he just spawns a body out of nothing. So my other body, now lifeless, is also useless.
Could someone, I don't know, cook and eat that body? Because if they can, couldn't I theoretically be used as an infinite food source? Just blow my own brains out, Ghost resurrects me with a new body, donate my old body to the many starving communities out there that haven't found the Last City?

French officials announced Thursday that they had killed the head of the Islamic State group in the Greater Sahara, referring to him as “enemy No. 1” in the region’s long-running anti-terrorism campaign.
French President Emmanuel Macron confirmed Adnan Abu Walid al-Sahrawi’s death. The Islamic State group leader personally ordered the death of six French humanitarian workers and their Nigerien colleagues last year.

2021.09.16 19:51 deweyusw Monitor shuts down in full screen mode
When I play movies in PotPlayer, inevitably it seems they will play okay, sometimes for 30 minutes, sometimes 30 seconds. Then, without warning, my monitor goes black...it's like the video card fails or shuts it down, because the monitor switches to lower power mode as if there is no signal. I can continue to hear the movie's audio, so I know the machine is still working, there's just no video. The Windows shortcut of Alt+Ctrl+Shift+B to restart the video card fails.
I tried both the 32 and 64 bit versions of PotPlayer, and even rolled it back to 1 year ago, before this happened all the time, and no luck. Thing is, I don't think it's the Nvidia driver, since I have an old GTX570 that was last updated 2 or 3 years ago, and this behavior only started about 4 months ago.
I see there are several threads on Reddit and even PotPlayer's own GitHub repo page where users have had the same problem, some going back to 2015. Is there something I'm not seeing? Is there a known fix?

No assets case. It was straightforward. Filed on June 15 or so... 341 was scheduled on july 15. I received an email from my attorney and he said i should receive a copy of the mail too.
But I also saw some posts that suggested I need to wait for decree or something. What gives?
Also, what cc to apply (to rebuild)?!?!
