FFXIV: Tales from Tells – Ask and Ye Shall Receive

Over the weekend, I was actually working on finishing some of my many job quests I’ve ignored for far too long in FFXIV (gasp!). Man, Black Mage quests are a pain in the tail… but that’s not what this is about.

So, I’d just returned to town to complete one of my quests, and hit the normal cutscene…. when I heard the ping of a /tell pop up. At first, I figured it was a friend or a FC member poking me for something. But when I went to read the tell, it was from someone I’d never met before.

Their question was cryptic.

I pondered how to answer this, since I didn’t actually know why. Then, me being a writer who loves words, I became curious and decided to Google it. After reading through a quick article, which I thought was pretty interesting, I shared the info with this questing soul.

There was a bit of a pause… and I got this in return:

ask3

I guess he asked the wrong person if he didn’t expect an answer.

Just when I thought that was the end of it, I heard another ping:

ask4

Oh, dang. I didn’t know this one either.

And to Google I went. When he realized I didn’t respond immediately, it dawned on him that I was looking this one up, too.

But, “bruh”… if you can type these things to me, you can type them to Google for yourself. 😉

  1. A random TED talk I watched informed me that germanic speakers distinguished between light-blue/blue and navy dark blue as two distinctly different colors (and this showed up as activated in the brain.)

    Blue and green and its various shades are also differentiated in different languages: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue%E2%80%93green_distinction_in_language

    If you trust the Wikipedia article, apparently in Old Norse, “blar” was also used to describe black (presumably that definition of blue skews more to the dark navy blue tint). A “blar”berry would be pretty accurate in describing its color, actually.

    Disclaimer: Not actual etymological research on the origin of “blueberry,” just random speculation.

    (We would drive some of these random dudebruhs to tears.)
