If its on mainstream media, don't believe it
How is it that your spelling of these words you only heard people say is impeccable?
 
Some for today:

way food saartay

igmaday

and hadal hayn
Igmasho is responsibility, for instance you may hear "Qofkaas hawshii loo igmaday ma uusan fulin" meaning The person did not fulfill his responsibility. If I'm not mistaken it was initially used for when you appoint a person to make your case.

last one for today: what's the difference between calaacal and canaan?
calaacal means to be angry or disappointed. It can be used interchangeably. cadaan means white. So if someone calls you cadaan, they are calling you a caucasian individual. Which is dumb since you are half asian. :mjlol:

"if you dont have my strenght, haven't you heard my gossiping" is that right lol? at least i tried
He said "Xogteyda" not "Xoogeyga". Xog translates into "the actual reality of an issue". So the meaning would be "If you do not know the actual state of my affairs, have you not heard the gossip regarding me?".
