      When He broke the third seal, I heard the third living creature saying, “Come.” I looked, and behold, a black horse and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand.


      a beer in my hand
      then a piss in a bush
      xans in the bedroom
      geeked off the kush
      half past nine, running dry
      you came thru
      bought an 18 pack
      and we split it in two
      didnt know what we
      were getting up to
      cuddled on the couch, you
      were watching cartoons
      slowly got up, said i
      got something to do
      headed outside, took
      a piss off the roof

      two more shots then i
      broke the seal, looked up
      at the sky saw the devil
      on a black horse
      headed right for me
      flying in a crash course
      spoke into my ear, and
      his voice was all coarse

      his fork-tongued words
      hit my ears like sand
      and he spoke in a language
      that i didn't understand
      my stomach felt tight
      pale white in my hands
      and i went back in at his command

      then i didn't sleep
      for the next three nights
      and i didn't eat shit
      popcorn, white rice
      dancing damning dreams of
      baby looking at me nice
      sugar plums withered to
      a kiss, a hug, and a good night

      -.

      soothe-speaking visions of
      your eyes like a blue quartz
      watching slowly, clouds morph
      devil on a pale horse
      memories in full force
      time has come, no recourse
      white wedding dressed corpse
      wicca phase task force

      -.

      as she spoke, her eyes became green
      stomach butterflies and weak knees
      god has sent an angel for me
      her hands crawled in my chest slowly
      said, "it's your heart which i'm holding"
      gently smiled and exposed her teeth
      then ate it whole, as a wild beast
      a soft call in the distance spoke in peace
      hades
      with arms open lovingly
      and i fell

      mutter-
      seel-
      inallein.
      mutter-
      seel-
      inallein.

      DOPAMINE

      AS THEY POUND HARD
      AGAINST THE BED

      HOLY FUCK I GUESS
      I GOT IT BAD.

      -.-.-.-.-.-.-.

      FROM WALKIN' HOME
      AND TALKIN' LOADS
      TO NO MORE CALLS
      LIVING ALONE

      TO TEETH AND CLAWS
      AND FRACTURED BONES
      TO TOTALED CARS
      AND BROKEN HOMES

      LET IT GO
      LET IT GO
      DON'T HOLD BACK THE RIVER
      LET IT FLOW

      There was a recent thread on ~talk about which linguistics habits people find annoying, and much to my horror, I have most of those which were mentioned. After thinking about it a little more, I realized that a lot of these habits were picked up from the media I consume and the people I interact with. I also feel that this problem is exacerbated by my poor knowledge of English grammar.

      While I was taught grammar at an elementary level in school, I didn't quite grok it back then, and mostly relied on my instinct, as to what "sounded" right. I have since forgotten most of what I had learnt, and my instinct is failing me - my grammar is atrocious, my punctuation is terrible and I only have auto-correct to thank for my spelling.

      I understand that English, like other languages, is constantly evolving. What is wrong now might be right tomorrow. However, I believe that this is no excuse for my shortcomings as there is merit speaking and writing in accordance with what is considered correct in the present day.

      I would like to learn English from "first principles", and would greatly appreciate if some users could suggest some books/resources which could help me (bonus points for resources pertaining to British English). Any other suggestions would also be great.

      Thanks, and have a nice day.

      A series of gender neutral alternatives for the third person singular pronouns (he/she/it) have been proposed throughout the recent years (and maybe decades). I wonder the preferences of fellow users here in that regard. So I'd be glad if you could answer the questions in the title, and maybe elaborate a bit on the reasons of your preference. I'm both interested in this generally, and it could be useful as a means to help me practice quantitative linguistic variation (obviously this would hardly be scientifically usable source of data for actual real research so I'm not asking this for that purposes). I'll add my preference as a comment.

      I'm not a native speaker, but from browsing reddit, understand 95% of what I read / hear. I also watch TV Shows exclusively in english. However, when i write a comment or something in english, it always feels like it doesn't really "flow".

      How can i, or other non-native speakers improve our writing skills?
