We Can Get Better When Losing

A meme from the #Tekken subreddit got me thinking:

Thanks to great comments by Glonk19 and Crimson_Final, I was reminded of what I often have to remind my clients about failure.

And, that conversation entails the NEED to lose (i.e. fail) IN ORDER to make progress. Gaming skills and speaking skills are totally relatable, don’t you think?

Is it “my apologies for” or “my apologies on”?

My client wanted to know is it “My apologies for” or “My apologies on”?

You can use both when #speakingEnglish, but you need to make sure you have the correct word after the preposition. Following “for” you need the gerund (ing form). Following “on”, you can have a basic noun. I’m sure there will be some exceptions, and it’s unlikely that this will be “correct” for TOEFL or TOEIC. But for #spokenEnglish, now you know!

What Does Tantalizing Mean?

Stephen King’s tweet said “Strange. Interesting. Tantalizing.”

So, what does “tantalizing” mean? And, is it a word that you’ll actually use in conversation?

Upset Bryan Player Confuses Author Myke Cole for Tekken Producer Michael Murray

The #FGC got a kick out of this case of mistaken #Tekken identity. And while plenty of great explanations were given, I wanted to give it a shot too!


Tekken pros, definitely chime in with critiques. I felt like I lost some tact since I don’t play as either character…

For the rest of you non-fighting game players, were you enlightened?
