    The sound of a window air conditioner. I've turned mine on and then put a quilt on to sleep. It's right by the headboard of my bed.

    That sounds like it would be soothing.

    Until discovering it on this app, I also like the sound of a crackling camp fire. lol!

    I tried some of those "soothing" recordings once but most find a way to be annoying (to me). The surf sounds are nice until you try to sleep and then there is an unusually loud one. With rain it either gets loud or there is thunder (loud).

    In reality there is nothing better than sleeping at the beach with the surf rolling in but in those recordings it's not usually nearly as nice.

    That’s so true, especially the waves sound. There is a really loud whoosh and it seems out of place. I don't care for the rain sounds, they all sound the same, but nothing like a rain storm at night, with the occasional thunder boom in the distance. So, yea the real thing is always better.

    Another way of saying ''batty'' in British slang. ''Crackers.'' I'll have to tell her that someone on the internet thinks she's crackers. lol

    Hi,

    Latin alphabet
    x - native (became)
    j, w - new
    y, z - Greek

    English alphabet
    x, y, j, w - native (became)
    z - still feels odd

    ... , x, y, z

    = = =

    Aryan
    https://www.etymonline.com/search?q=aryan

    = = =

    English - German - Russian (- Latin)

    In some aspects English and Russian are exactly the same and in some aspects they are the exact opposites.
    German is between.

    Even subjunctive and conditionals.

    = = =

    Whatever-English-word does not have whatever word-ending.
    Forget gender (with its endings), Dative and Instrumental are everywhere.

    Nouns have Grammatical case endings, verbs have verb endings.
    = = =

    About two thirds of English words are Latin or broken Latin - French.
    /English is a heavily latinised native language/

    Demonstrative pronouns everywhere are used as Definitive articles (placed before or at the end of a word).
    /far in time, one knows the thing/

    = = =

    Looks like this site comes alive late at night …into the early morning hours. (Eastern time, that is) lol

    That feeling when you’re in the wrong timezone.

    When there's a TV promo that says something is on at "ten o'clock eastern, eight central", I know it's on at nine my time.

    EST and CST are one hour apart.

    Are you in (or next to) some state that observes (or does not observe) Daylight Savings?

    As luck would have it, yes! I shouldn't say luck, God has blessed me with being in the right time zone in all his mysterious wisdom. Who am I to argue?

    I would

    Your in the wrong timezone place

    Here in Australia the Northern Territory Darwin we don't have to worry about messing with timezones and changing clocks. That's for other parts of Australia

    I only have to think about timezone when I chat with or go Bali which is 1½ hours behind Darwin. Off there soon for 4 weeks and catching up with 4 friends

    I thought I might have gotten that wrong and I was too lazy to check it out. But the times they quote are two hours apart.
    I am in a province that is on permanent daylight saving time.
