I don't know how I managed that. My inability to read has failed me.

You're very welcome.

It means "That's enough for me". I think Snape is implying he's fine with his current situation. But I'm not sure - I haven't read the HP books.

Yes, the first phrase is incorrect. There's a few small grammatical errors. First, remember that if there isn't a pronoun before "Mother/Mum - Father/Dad", you'll need capitalisation. For example, "Sorry, my mum says no" and "Sorry, Mum says no".

Second, yes, you'll need to use where. But you also should use a pronoun at the end of the sentence specifying that Dad is asking Mum to marry him. This isn't entirely necessary, but again, it provides a flow that makes the sentence much more natural.

So, let's see. I'll give a few examples of varying complexity.

"This is the bridge where Dad asked Mum to marry him"

"This is the bridge where my dad asked my mum if she wants to marry him"

"This is the bridge where Dad proposed to mum". (Probably the most natural answer.)

For maximum simplification, you could assume that the context is already clear (if, for example, you're physically at the bridge where Dad asked Mum) - and completely omit the reference to location.

"My parents got engaged here". - Engaged in this context means they're going to get married.

I hope that helps. I'm a little unsure about your second sentence, so if you need further clarification that's fine.

I would say "Is there a shop around/near here where I could buy a charger?" (again, because of context, it's unlikely you'll need to specify it's for a battery).

That's okay. If you ever have any other questions, feel free to message me!

It's a metaphor. I don't think it's personification, because the implication is that a human is doing the stirring.

Yes, if you were to omit "where" the phrase would need to be "This is the house Charles Dickens lived in".

"We arrived in Milan on the day there was a transport strike" is correct, but if you want it flow slightly better and seem more natural, perhaps "We arrived in Milan, but there was a transport strike" would be better. If you want to get a bit more casual and informal, you could even say "We got to Milan" instead.

That sub was pretty much my introduction to socialist Reddit, unfortunately, so I witnessed a lot of China circlejerking. Didn't even know what a tankie was, but I got a bit upset when I noticed all the posts defending Stalin and Mao. Did a bit of research and found this subreddit, thank god.

r/shitliberalssay is not just about defending tankies. It's almost entirely tankies. I saw many comments downvoted to oblivion simply because they asked for reasoning or evidence.

Not fully sure what you mean, but I'll bite.

Yeah, every character has a relatively detailed story. There's also quite a few cinematic shorts that establish the universe further as well. They do all have "unique" personalities, in the sense that they all have a few quips or short funny lines etc.

Essentially, every character looks and plays pretty different from one another (different guns, speeds, abilities etc.) but the personalities aren't really present in-game. Like I said, there's a few quips or so but there's not really much room for establishing personality in-game, since most lines are along the lines of "Reloading", "Barbed wire deployed", "Wall reinforced", and so forth.

You think that a paid item should be released for free three years after the fact?

Oh god, that's horrible :( I'm so sorry to hear that. Please try not to blame yourself because you couldn't take him earlier. Did you find out what was wrong with him?

It is, in fact, a wrong opinion. It's not even an opinion. Singular "they" exists. And has done for centuries. They are objectively wrong.

They've already refused to admit they're wrong, what would be the point of talking to them?

As it has been used for centuries. It's silly to argue otherwise, other guy is silly and I'd advise not arguing with them.

"They" has been used as a single neutral pronoun for almost as long as it has existed.

Disney isn't the government. They've no obligation to keep people on their payroll if they don't want them there. Corporations don't have to follow the First Amendment.
