I have been working on a list of the most misleading/deceptive footnotes in church publications and I was just wondering if anyone had any that stuck out to them without doing much digging?
Going to have a post up about it at some point in the next few weeks, but figured I'd see if anyone had any big ones I did not put down from the essay/saints/ensign/etc.

Couldn’t help but wonder what Joseph Smith owes Adam Clarke? What do you think?

We know that Trump was briefed on the new Coronavirus back in November, when all known cases were occurring in China. By December, we knew that pre-symptomatic transmission was occurring. By the time things got bad in Italy and the Diamond Princess situation happened, a reasonable President would have ordered a quarantine on all international travel. We might have seen a few hundred cases in New York, Seattle, and Los Angeles, with a dozen or so deaths, but Coronavirus would have never gained any kind of foothold in the U.S.
Of course, the Republicans would have vilified her for the negative effect on the economy. The overall economic result might have been that manufactured goods might be a bit more expensive, and we might be facing economic retaliation from China and Europe for slowing shipping.
You can change my mind by showing that the outbreak was more stealthy than I thought and that SARS-CoV-2 would have spread throughout the states even with a quick, strong response. Or... keep reading on reddit ➡
Terry Pratchett really likes putting amusing footnotes in his books, and they're absolutely killing me when I try to read them on my Kindle Paperwhite.
The footnote appears as a tiny asterisk with an underline. It's so small that every time I try to touch the link, instead of opening the footnote, it either navigates to the next page, the previous page, brings up the menu header or selects text and looks it up in the dictionary. I have to repeatedly undo whatever the unwanted action was, and then try to touch the tiny asterisk again. Sometimes it takes me more than ten tries to open a god damn footnote.
Hello, I am looking to buy this book and it is half the price of the paperback on kindle. I hear the footnotes are hilarious, but are they present in the Kindle format?
I really appreciated all your comments and messages about that thing I put up last month. Some were head-swellingly complimentary and others were less so, but all of them got me thinking about ways I could shore up my analysis with some additional observations and some responses to some common countertheories. (The main text isn't much different; most of the new stuff is in the footnotes.) I don't presume that you'll want to read this thing all over again--and you certainly don't have to, obviously--but since it's become something of a communal exercise, I figured I'd put it out there if anyone wants to see Version 2.0!
Thanks again for indulging my obsessions about this amazing book.
If the Disney trilogy was trying to bring the star wars story into the future in a way that honoured the original story in an entertaining way, they failed spectacularly.
If it was trying to sabotage decades of story telling in an act that fans would pay big money to watch the destruction of (even defend) in order to redesign a franchise to be more profitable in the future, it was a tour de force.
I cannot believe that a plot like that was developed by professionals. I'm completely certain that a randomly chosen group of fans of both the OT and PT with no writing experience could put together a more coherent and entertaining plot for a sequel trilogy that would've been regarded as a satisfying conclusion/epilogue.
Hi! I am having a little bit of trouble with this footnote. He is rightfully criticizing a confirmation criteria which is sensible to different formulations, so, for example, All Ravens are Black and Whatever is not Black is not a Raven, although obviously equivalent, wouldn't be confirmed or invalidated by the same sentences (that's what the criteria states anyways).
So, Hempel throws that example, and I fail to see how:
Given: ∀x∀y ( ( ¬(R(x,y)) ∧ R(y,x) ) → ( R(x,y) ∧ ¬(R(y,x)) )
How could R(a,b) ∧ ¬(R(b,a)) satisfy both the antecedent and the consequent?
As I understand it, R(a,b) is an instantiation of R(x,y) and thus it could never satisfy the antecedent. (I do know that, given a false antecedent, the condition is true). And if I were to understand R(a,b) as an instatiation of R(y,x) (which seems very illicit), then the antecedent is clearly true, but the consequent equally false, and thus the conditional false as well.
It doesn't seem to me tha... keep reading on reddit ➡
Wondering whether y’all read the footnotes as you’re going along, or wait until the end of the chapter, or not at all?
I’ve finished my paper, but I don’t really know how to cite the footnotes and the bibliography. Sadly, the paper is due today, and this is my last hope. Any help is appreciated.
I’m reading the copy of the book with the eye on it. I have 100 pages of numbered end notes but I do not see any markers for those endnotes in the main text. Do I just have the wrong version? Am I to figure out what the end notes correspond to on my own?
Update: I just figured they would come much earlier than they did (there are, after all, over 100 pages of them.) all is well. Thanks everyone.
I am not surprised that the inclusion of some Reddit users, in Netflix’s response, has got many of them guffawing. It amused me too.
But it is also unsurprising how they have failed to address any of the rest of the brief, given that it succeeds in destroying Colborn’s claims.
Almost universally, their only discussions have been backslapping about some comment made in a footnote on one of the pages. Very telling.
This is towards the end of the brief but made me laugh because it sums it up nicely,
> Colborn disagrees with the choices made in MaM, and the First Amendment protects his right to express that disagreement in civil discourse. It does not permit him to punish those choices through this civil suit.
I do recall making a comment some time ago that Colborn would surely have to prove that there was indeed some falsity to the defence’s allegations during the trial. Making a claim that Netflix are defaming him by making false accusations would surely require someone to fir... keep reading on reddit ➡
Just out of curiosity, how many of you had to put anything Covid related on your footnotes for financial reporting?
Pass/fail has ruined all my motivation to be a good student so I am finishing law school the same way I used to finish final papers back in the day as an irresponsible undergrad. I always imagined handing in my last final of 3L would feel a lot more satisfying, but here we are. Cheers class of 2020!
He adds that for the Muslim kingdoms, the Christian westerners were only a faction of the many infidels the Muslims encountered in battle for land and population gains. The Muslims did not differentiate between infidels, and so a bigger picture view of the crusades as a Western Christendom vs Islamic East tug of war of greater importance than any other power dynamic was not really present in Muslim writings.
He further remarks that any significant interest and infatuation with the holy wars is moreso a recent phenomena (20th/21st century) - a political tool used by radicals to fuel religious extremist groups.
I want a god that can either hit from range or quickly close distance or create it, while doing quite a good bit of damage. I've been heavily considering Ratatoskr and other assassins as well as mages for this, but any suggestion is appreciated.
The original Zen Masters are real true friends. Ha, ha, ha! One can only say this much; if you understand, you can have the experience yourself. Then you will have something to act on. If you get involved in rationalizations, comparisons, and verbalizations, then you do not understand, and you cannot experience it yourself.
When you are going about and doing your chores, do you see that the original Zen masters are real true friends? Since you don't see, when asked about it you get flustered.
Where is the problem? The problem lies in the fact that you are always coming from the midst of conceptual comparisons, and do not personally attain experience. All of you go sit on benches, close your eyes, and demolish your thinking all the way from the Milky Way above to Hades below before you can make a statement or two. But when you get to a quiet place, you still don't get the ultimate point. Before your eyes is nothing but things that obstruct people. Lightly questione... keep reading on reddit ➡
Hi, I’m making a book with two types of footnotes in the same page. One type will be numbers and another type will be with stars. Does Indesign have this double footnotes option and if it does how can I do it and where i can find it? I would appreciate any help!

Studies in the Language of Zu-tang ji 祖堂集, VOLUME 2: TRANSLATION (and Glossary of Linguistic Terms, Bibliographies, Index), Christoph Anderl
Zu-tang ji 祖堂集 - Compiled in 952 in the kingdom of Southern Tang (937–975), Zutang ji 祖堂集 is an invaluable source of information about the formative history of the Chan school and the gradual evolution of Chan literature. Long lost and forgotten in China, only to be rediscovered during the early part of the twentieth century among the woodblocks of the Buddhist canon stored at Haein Monastery 海印寺 in Korea, the text represents an outline of earlier Chan “history,” written from a regional perspective. Among the text's prominent features is its inclusion of unique materials not found in other Chan collections.

A lot of people may be overwhelmed by the massive amount of patch notes, so here's a cuddle friendly version of everything new for returning players! Almost every item in the game has been changed or affected in some way, but these are meant to be a way to quickly see what this patch is about. If you're wondering about any specific item, ability, enemy, or anything else in the game, I'd recommend searching the official patch notes for detailed information.

I just read a paperback copy of Equal Rites (the blue cover illustrated by Ben Perrini) and there were no footnotes at all throughout the book. I didn’t realize it until close to the end and now I feel robbed.
Is this right?? I’ve read a handful of other Discworld novels and they’ve been rife with footnotes throughout. Is this the only one without them, or did some criminally misguided publisher actually decide to publish a run of Pratchett novels without his footnotes?
I tried searching online to find an answer but couldn’t find anything. Please someone let me know what’s going on here!
EDIT: Thank you all for reassuring me that I didn’t miss anything!! I appreciate your help solving this mystery!
Rereading the story and it definitely seems like it decreases over time and interestingly enough, it seems to have coincided with Ryoka growing as a person and overcoming (some of) her issues.
If this was intentional then bravo on Pirateaba for mixing writing style and narrative like this.
I really, really want to like them, but I haven't read or heard of anything that sets them apart from the "good" guys. Machine possession makes a lot of repairs redundant, plus traitors routinely steal a lot of gear from the Imperium so they don't have to make so much. I see the occasional reference to demonic code, but besides that they aren't doing anything more gruesome than their loyal counterparts.
Thanks for the feedback y'all!
