I learned that:
1. I didn't get the job I applied for  :(
2. that if I don't save my game regularly and I die I lose a lot of progress  :(
3. people are mean enough to dare their friends to come to my lessons and act like they're interested and then leave halfway through AFTER telling me they never wanted to be there in the first place!  >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:(
4. that you can't eat with a denture  :( >:( :( >:( :( >:( :( >:(
5. that nobody is hiring around where I live  :( :( :( :(
Well that sucks! 
Have a hug .....

1. I never got a job, but I know it can take many tries. I hope you will succeed soon.
2. :/
3. I agree with your angry smileys. It's just evil and selfish. I can understand that it's not common to learn an artificial language, but if they prefer to remain monolingual and not to open their minds to the art of the speech, then they can just stay away.
4. I think it requires some adaptation. However I don't know how long it takes.
5. That's sad. I can just hope a new job will be available soon.

Today I learned my entire (very thick and heavy) 3 ring full of Na'vi stuff I put together years ago safely made it through moving last fall.  :)

That the (Silesian, or Polish in general?) word "kapsa" probably comes from Czech :)

The Mandarin word for Oxford. Usually, they just write place names phonetically, like New York is 紐約 (niu3yue1, literally button-to_schedule), or London is 倫敦 (lun2dun1, literally human_relationship/order/coherence-kind_hearted). But Oxford is a straight up calque: 牛津 (niu2jin1 which sounds nothing like Oxford, but literally means an_ox-a_ford) ;D

I intend to learn Mandarin in the future, so I find this fascinating. ;D

When trying to type "(calendar) date" in Chinese (日期), the first suggestion of the Google IME was 日期, and the second... The actual date! How cool is that?
And finally found the word for "next day/the day after (an event)" (as opposed to "tomorrow"). Not sure why it's so difficult to find at times... Anyway, it's 翌日.

Sorry for double-posting, but I just learnt how to write a Chinese character-based emoticon: 囧
Also, that there is a syllable jiong in Mandarin. I don't remember seeing any (other) word which actually used it, but apparently it exists (in three tones, nonetheless).
