For TikToker @fl00r_boy , it was a video asking what you call the “connectussy” that takes you from the gate to your plane. (It’s a Jetway, by the way.) “My fear for the future of our language is that the suffix - ussy is just going to be accepted and part of regular speech,” he says in the video, … [Read more...] about We Asked Linguists Why People Are Adding -Ussy to Every Word

GameCentral looks forward to a new year of tabletop releases, including a board game version of Skyrim and Fortnite in Magic: The Gathering. Last year board games got hit hard by supply chain issues brought about by the pandemic but everyone’s hoping that 2022 will see a return to something close to normality, with the Gen Con live event set to return and an accelerated release schedule for games that were held back due to production and distribution issues. As is increasingly the case, many of this year’s most exciting releases will begin their life on Kickstarter, even for big licensed games like Blade Runner and the adaptations of Skyrim and Dark Souls. So it pays to keep an eye on the tabletop section of the website if you want to get in first with a new project. More new games will also be revealed at Gen Con at the end of the month, with the industry keen to make sure it doesn’t lose any of the new fans that got into tabletop gaming because of the pandemic. … [Read more...] about Top 13 tabletop games and RPGs to look forward to in 2022

A group of young dancers and their teachers avoided tragedy as they escaped from a burning second-floor dance studio Monday. The fire tore through Professional Arts Academy, located on the second floor of a mixed-use building in Edgewater, New Jersey -- just across the river from Manhattan. There was an auto body shop, car wash, health spa and restaurant on the first floor of the building. The fire started at about 6:30 p.m., according to officials. Video shot by an onlooker shows a handful of children and instructors trapped on the balcony of the dance school with people below trying to raise ladders to help them escape. A couple children jump onto the ladders, before eventually the people on the balcony are forced to fall the 10 feet to the ground. Five people were hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries, according to Edgewater Fire Chief Steven Curry. Mayor Michael McPartland said they were "very fortunate here tonight" more people weren't injured. "I … [Read more...] about Dramatic video shows children escaping from balcony of burning building
