00:07, Chad> Bad weather, that's whats wrong.
09:04, Lightning4 whispers: wasn't that asked for a few days ago? :P
09:14, Serpens> Is it acceptable to say "feel like at home" instead of "feel at home" or other such idiom?
14:34, Kynreeve> Whenever I'm in doubt of a word or a phrase googling it helps -- https://www.google.co.uz/search?aq=f&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8&q=%22feel+li ke+at+home%22
14:39, Kynreeve whispers: Now that you all know my location, send me some cupcakes :P
20:37, Cryoburner whispers: Cryo already knew that from checking your IP. :P
20:40, Cryoburner> I would say "feel like at home" doesn't sound right.
20:44, Cryoburner> "Feel at home" sounds better if you're saying that you feel familiar and comfortable with something.
20:45, Cryoburner> Or perhaps "feel like I'm at home" if an environment feels casual and relaxed.
21:02, Neuzd> "Fell like a tome" even, if you tripped and subdued to gravity in the fashion of heavy books. It all depends on what you want to express, I guess.
21:21, Serpens> Oh, right, the context. Well, apparently "feel like at home" is the new official Polish slogan of the upcoming Euro 2012.
21:22, Serpens> Most people say it's a serious mistake and doesn't put Poland in a good light. But I was wondering what a native English speaker thinks about this.
21:26, Neuzd> Unless this english speaker is born in Poland, they'd probably say it's too many thousands km west from home...
