    Default A conversation I overheard

    I was sitting in class today and my teacher allowed us to do whatever we wanted, so everyone was on their phone or talking quietly. Two girls, A and B were sitting just behind me and they were looking at A's new notebook which had a big map attached at the back (it was a thick journal like book). They had been talking for a little while before I started listening to what they were saying.

    .....
    A: It's like there should be only one ocean.
    B: There are many oceans though.
    A: There are five oceans. I learned that in school.
    B: Yeah, I think so.
    A: What are they? Indian Ocean...
    B: Arctic ocean, Atlantic ocean, Indian Ocean and Pacific ocean.
    A: Wait... Indian, Arctic, Pacific and...?
    B: Antarctic
    A: But that only makes four
    B: Five oceans- Arctic, Atlantic, Indian and Pacific
    A: Wait, where's the other?
    B: That's it.
    A: That's only four!
    B: Arctic, Antarctic, Pacific and Indian.
    A: And?
    B: Oh yeah, Atlantic!
    A: Where is that?
    B : Between America and Africa.
    A: Ohhh, I thought that was... then where is the antarctic ocean?
    B (pointing): Down here
    A: Oh... Ok! Hey, which is the biggest continent, by the way?
    B: America. Or Asia. One of those.
    A: The best continent to visit- like if you ever get a chance to tour a continent, has to be Europe.
    B: I know..! It has places like Spain, Switzerland...
    A: Seriously..! The capital of Spain is Portugal, right?
    B: Yeah.
    A: What about Switzerland?
    B: Umm.... Zurith, I think, or something.
    A (pointing at map) : All those amazing football players in Spain, in just this little area....
    B: I know, isn't Ronaldo so hot?
    A: Yeah, they all are...!

    (both keep agreeing)





    We all pretty much have our favorite seats which means that people keep sitting in the same places or with people they're already friends with and this teacher is very lax, so I've heard plenty of funny conversations between the two of them.

    Why do so many geographical areas start and end with A?

    its like the most common sound in human language, stands to reason it should play a disproportionate role in human words

    I am surprised more placed don't start with U, considering all the early cities are some variation of Ur

    I have never understood why people have problems with geography. It's just memorization...

    Those are all in mesopotamia, though. Most western language emerges from indo-european language families which originated in the Indian-Pakistani region. The capital of the region at the time? HArAppA.

    EDIT: Apparently Harappa is named after a modern village, and the site's name has no relation to its ancient name. BUT STILL.

    Haha, news channels do that here too.


    Todays random snippet of conversation:

    A: I think my sixth sense is really becoming stronger nowadays.
    B: That's so cool! So tell me something!
    A: Well.... (long pause)
    Many things. I can't really think of anything specifically.
    B: Oh? So...
    A: Okay, so I was driving the other day, and my phone was on silent mode, but I suddenly felt that X was calling me. When I checked later, I actually saw that Y had called me twice!
    B: Wow, really?
    A: Yeah, and I had a feeling I would score 50 on our last exam- before the exam, and even after- I just thought I would get 50. And I did!
    [pause]
    A: I should really read more though. It was nice back when I used to read...
    B: And now you spend all your time online...
    A: Pointless browsing! I don't even go on facebook. What do you do on Facebook for so long?
    B: I just read people pages. It's very informative. VERY informative.

    Stupidest conversation I ever overheard:

    Girl-1: Uh did you hear about that slut Girl-3, she is spreading rumors about us and talking behind our back.
    Girl-2: I know, that drunk bitch told a story about us getting drunk. Which is true, but what right does she have to say that.
    Girl-1: oh did you hear that she is sleeping with Boy-1 :O

    o.O

    Oh here's one between the same A and B...!

    A: Isn't it going to be so weird meeting your parents for the first time after your honeymoon- or if you have to tell them you're pregnant?
    B: *laughing*
    A: It's like- they KNOW what you've been doing...
    B: So? Why just those times? Are you going to be embarrassed to ever speak to them every day after that to the end of your days?
    A: No, because they won't know for sure on other days, it's not really embarrassing.
