365491 ChicoItaliano : what's the discussion about?

365495 BillMcneal : i don't think so haha
365498 BillMcneal : we're so unprepared for it that the chinese just donated four armoured vehicles for security

365500 BillMcneal : they had to give them to us for free
365502 ChicoItaliano : there's gonna be protests or such?
365503 BillMcneal : oh yes, big time
365504 BillMcneal : i don't get it though, let's say you're an anarchist, ok... but what do you accomplish by throwing stones at the police?
365505 BillMcneal : there's something i don't understand about people (?)
365507 Carlos7878 : hey, I have a relatively Spanish question. Could someone tell me what would be the difference in English translation between “No pude dormir” and “No podía dormir”?
365508 BillMcneal : relatively spanish? haha
365509 Carlos7878 : relatively simple*
365511 BillMcneal : ahh haha
365512 Carlos7878 : loll my bad
365513 BillMcneal : "no podía dormir" you're telling it like you're telling a story, "i wasn't able to sleep, then..."
365514 BillMcneal : the difference is so subtle it's irrelevant, are you writing a novel?
365515 BillMcneal : if not, then don't worry
365516 Carlos7878 : so if you’re saying i was already up because I couldn’t sleep would it be “ya estaba despertado porque no pude dormir” or “ya estaba despertado porque no podía dormir”
365517 Cthulhu : both are ok
365518 Carlos7878 : it’s because i said “no pude dormir” to my mom and she said it sounded weird, so i was wondering what the difference is
365519 Cthulhu : the difference is very subtle
365520 BillMcneal : ya me había despertado porque no podía dormir, in which case you match both tenses
365521 Cthulhu : despierto*, by the way
365523 BillMcneal : i think "no podía dormir" sounds more like "i wasn't able to fall asleep", like you're telling it as it happened, like when telling a story or anecdote
365524 BillMcneal : while "no pude dormir" is just "i didn't sleep"
365525 BillMcneal : but with pude thrown in the mix (?)
365526 BillMcneal : doesn't sound weird to me at all anyway
365527 Cthulhu : el pretérito imperfecto is used to describe actions that would happen continuously in the past of were prolonged in time, so that's why it sounds like if it was the start of a stoy
365528 Cthulhu : no podia dormir ... y entonces un dinosaurio entró en mi habitación
365529 BillMcneal : no wonder
365531 Cthulhu : in that context u said both sound ok, dunno why u mother said that to u
365532 Cthulhu : maybe it's a matter of preference
365533 Cthulhu : the way it's used change from country to country, maybe
365534 Carlos7878 : yeah, that’s probably so
365535 River Plate : Hey bill sup
