What do we do about the French problem?

Jews say there's a butter shortage

I fucking hate it.
I live in New Brunswick, the only officially bilingual province in Canada.
Anytime you buy something in a french town it's like they're spewing out string of computer language as fast as their tongues will let them and they fucking look down on you if you don't know what the fuck numbers their saying right away.
I hope we get annexed soon ffs, hurry Trump.
Do you say decimals by reading right to left? In any case Engish used to say numbers like Germans do, idk why or when it stopp.ed
A better question is what the fuck is wrong with the German language? It looks like they just mash a whole bunch of letters together and try to make sounds out of them. Truly the most autistic of languages in this world
A “ling” is a little thing. “Schmetten” is Slavic and means cream. Back in the middle ages, Germans believed butterflies are little devil creatures and witches which love sweet cream. Hence Schmetterling.
As I said, German is very logical.
Truly the most autistic
Only Germans are going to know that you crazy German!
Listen leaf, I'm just getting this shit from Jewgle okay?
Well now you're just being ignorant, friend.
the butter shortage has been over for a while.
It happened because there's legal quota in the country on how much milk a farm can produce. Originally it was to keep the price of milk at a decent value, but these days with (europe) it's basically the main cause of suicide in agriculture in the country.

Nobody calls it that way, just like nobody says "television device"
We just call it Fernseher or tv
Krauts don't wan't to use Latin words so they went with "Fernsehen." Same meaning
no wonder froggots wanted 10-hour clocks...
I say it in the german way though... but I guess that's just me!!!!
Seriously, how does German go from something simple like 'Guten morgen!'
Only the 13-99 numbers are backwards. For longer numbers you get a mix of normal left-to-right and backwards right-to-left in German. For example "753234", if you would translate it word-for-word from how it's said in German, it would be: "seven hundred three and fifty thousand, two hundred four and thirty".
I like Germans but ffs fix your language
Don't russians do something like "100 but actually 99" or something similar.

i though "zain" was german for 10.
I didn't look this up nor do I know how it's spelled. But my grandma taught me acht, noin, tzain.
And that's the reason why you never should study Czech in Prague. Everyone speaks English and/or Russian.

999999 in german:

You still do from thirteen to nineteen
english should be the same nine(9)*ty(10)+nine(9)
People don't know, is not democracy here Used to be better, we basically took upeverything that was right about germany at that age, including gassing homo sexuals and g ypsies, and ended it in the 70ies when the cultural marxist led by gro harlem bruntland took overr, yea is bitch breivik wanted to kill. He was right in so many ways you know
oh, that would explain why it's zig and not zain for ten
Finally it's time to post my Waifu

Agree with that, German number spelling isn't efficient since it wasn't reformed like in other languages. It is a relict of older times going back to indo-germanic origin.
Singles were I and Tenner were X like in Latin numerals. I guess most countries in Europe had that before they got reformed
Acht neun zehn
Move to an English province then, fag
Why does most everyone else switch from saying the small number first? Most everyone does it up to 20. German is I believe the only language to keep it that way.
You get point.

“Schmetten” is Slavic and means cream.

Good job OP

Japanese numbers stop making sense after 10,000 which is 1-man. Japanese people have to stop and write big numbers down and count the zeros to figure out what the hell is going on.

Yhdeksänkymmentäyhdeksän (9x10, 9)
It's a swiss way to say numbers.
Source: my ex was a mountain frenchie
for example, devedeset devet
devedeset - 90, formed from devet (9) and deset (10, but in numbers this marks the size order). it's not devetdeset because the t becomes d due to equalization of consonants by phonation, it becomes deveseddevet but the d is lost because in our language the same consonant next to itself is almost nonexistent, this isn't written down as we have almost perfect orthography that desu should be adopted by everyone immediately

dziewięćsetdziewięćdziesiątdziewięćtysięcydziewięćsetdziewięćdziesiątdziewięć - 999 999
Makes sense. It's definitely some dialect that's unusual because my family had issues communicating at times when in France.
English has best numbering system compared to other languages but really it stops making sense after trillion bc the numbers get too big anyways so it’s easier to just say something like eight point five times 10 to the 18
Although generally at numbers that big it's customary to write them as numbers and not as words naturally
It's also the first time in my life when I 'wrote' a number this high
Writing this was somehow confusing
nine hundred ninety nine thousand nine hundred ninety nine
Does any numbering system make sense after 999 trillion? Those numbers are so rarely used scientific notation simply makes more sense.
there is one welsh tv channel and one welsh radio station northern wales, liverpool and argentina are the only places its spoken
I don’t think so
English is probably the only one that makes it to a trillion and still makes easy coherent sense
Nice fucking digits btw
most people just use standard form
literally fed by american tax payers
That makes no fucking sense whatsoever.

Enlighten me on the part of Canadian history where the french gave mercy to us poor British souls.
Not after trillions
Even most normal calculators switch to something like 9E11 which is another easy as fuck way to write it but is more for math people who use calculators a lot
Haha, fuckin separate then pussy.
O wait, America won't let you, sorry.
The price of Christmas biscuits is soaring on the back of a national butter shortage
Enough is enough, I could take the baguettes and their croissant issues, but when it starts to affect our biscuits.....
You dont tip at fastfood or take out and nobody rings you up and says “plus tip” also our sizes are just small medium or large for everything here.
It's more like 4+20+10+9

The german language is nowhere near the weirdest. It is the most autistic though since finns are just memeing.

well, other than "Wir schaffen das" of course
english is clearly the superior language
sorry to brainlets who think quatre vingt dix neuf is too mathematically complicated lmao
The Welsh have a similar system of counting in twenties. Probably goes back to Gaulish influence in the French case.
i meant this
TF is wrong with you? Why you have two "and's" in there?
novecienos noventa y nueve mil novecientos noventa y nueve.
The problem with that is you don't use real ingredients and rely on the corn syrup jew for pretty much everything
SIEG UND HEILIG
well actually this ffs
I wonder if the French/Gauls used their hands and Feet to count resulting in a vegisimal system for numbers similar in how germanics used their buckles to count resulting in a dodecatisimal system giving us eleven and twelve
Why? UK deviated from English, not US.
Nine and half less than five twenties?
Is this real?
You're so right. I had a hot German teacher in college. What I would give to have her whisper "Schmetterling" in my ear... German sounds beautiful whenever done right.
Sieg und Wohlergehen you fucking degenerate gypsy low iq subhuman filth.
Doesn't seem due to protectionism like that scandian butter shortage a few years ago.
Shit, you're right. I just checked the label on my sirloin tips and the first ingredient was corn syrup. My mixed nuts contains high fructose corn syrup! And, my fruits and vegies are sprayed with MSG.

WTF is wohlergehen? You mean Walgreens?

First one says that this is an entrance for firetrucks. Second one says that theres a source of water for extinguishing fires on the property. Its just multiple words stuck together to describe something precisely.

Lol delusional, my aunt just bought 12 pounds of real butter for her Christmas baking, it was nothing
They can't. The locals have learned how to interned different intonations of "ficki ficki" and give them directions or food.
You know like "ogga booga" means like 150 different things in somalian.
Fucky Jimmy, always makes me laugh.
Not totally, we stil say "quatre-vingt" for 80 (4 * 20). Only the Swiss French have it right.

Ouf les francais sont con dans ce thread...
You mean "nine and four and a half times twenty"? Learn to coun t you dumb nigger.
the only patrician style
10 - dix
20 - vingt
40 - quarante
60 - sioxante
80 - quatre-vingt-un
100 - cent
you can see their problem begins at 70-99
In Spanish some numbers like hundreds can become femenine, depending on the noun. I guess it's not the only language where this happens.
French don't say eighty, they say: four times twenty, some people think it's because previous to the arrival of romans they used hands and feets to count, so 20 fingers, 20 is the biggest "unity" instead of ten.
But they don't say two times twenty or three times twenty. Quarante (40) and soixante (60).
70 soixante-dix (sixty-ten)
80 quatre vingt (four twenties)
90 quatre vingt dix (four twenties ten)
It's difficult too... First, you have the letters, completely different from ours, also they have sounds that we are not used to do. As a spanish there are a few i recognize in my language and anglos have problems to pronounce, plus all the throat rr, kha and j. The vowels are a nightmare, they don't have 5 like us, that's why they use i (your e) instead of e (the first half of your a). They don't say España, they say isbania, because they don't have P, so they use b.
Writing the vowels are dots or like a coma, but they don't write them because they alredy know wich word is only with consonants, so you have to figure out witch vowel is in the context of that word if you are reading. Plus solar and lunar letters and the Al- or A-
It's batshit language, chaotic and dialects add more diffculty. But you should understand the enemy!
Germany will eventually accept arab as their language, they are alredy saying in the Bundestag that a german actually is a brown guy or a woman with niqab...
