you'd think a bunch of bored redditors singlehandedly disproving the efficient-market hypothesis would be a bigger story
Sturgeon: SNP will hold Scottish independence vote if it wins in May. First minister says she will hold advisory referendum, whether Westminster consents or not. 👏

Gritty reboot where Hagrid gets to say "shit" at least once and Harry's scar makes him look vaguely like a Bond villain. When we first see Dumbledore he's dressed in all black and he's listening to Whitechapel. Cameo appearance from Rowling herself. Her character will describe herself as a "doomer." It'll get five episodes into an online release before having the rest of the season cancelled.
MY BOJACK HORSEMAN MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE HOUSE OF WOLVES AMV IS COMPLETE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
HERE IT IS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
my college never talks about my home country but of course the one time they decide to mention it they spell my country wrong :") so here's some info about a very political name.
Burma is increasingly known to the public at large as Myanmar. It is pronounced "Mieahn-mahr" (like nyan from nyan cat) with very little staggering between the syllables. it is not pronounced "Mai-ahn-marh". Myanmarnese is not a language that exists.
Burma is derived from the largest ethnic group, the Bama people. Not everyone in Burma speaks Burmese. Myanma (no r) originates from the Burmese language as the literary name of the country. It was adopted under the military regime to be the word that would be all inclusive of all citizens regardless of ethnicity.
So technically, someone may be from Myanmar/Burma and might not be Burmese ethnically either way. And many people might not know their own ethnic roots due to this erasure.
The usage of Myanmar being used to be more inclusive is still controversial because 1. it wasn't done with the consent of ethnic minority groups who are having this forced on them 2. it was decided by the military regime 3. it's still dependent on the majority ethnic group language 4. much of these conventions were originally imposed by the British in the first place
thinking about how the british IRS made this poster to try and counter offshore tax evasion and its like. my guy what do you think is going to happen here. do you think that some saudi oil prince or billionaire defense contractor is going to walk along and see this and go "SHIT! they're onto me! i better get my accounts in order!"
If i'm not, please tell me.
