I'm guessing that the only ones who got Capital of the Uyghur autonomous region are people who live in the Capital of the Uyghur autonomous region. Just a guess.

I know it due to having lived in China for a couple of years. It is the only "U" city I know in that region.

So now they've renamed Sinkiang in English to the alphabet soup of Xinjiang and now to Uyghur? Chinese don't use Latin letters nor anything that corresponds to them. So who takes it upon themselves to demand nonsense spellings like these?

@brandybuck, here for over a year and a month, havent come across it before, and this week, twice! This is the 2nd time. Guangzhou on the on hand always comes up, and I can never remember it. And the one in a hundred times I do remember it (if I think of more than it starts with a g and has 2 syllables) I never know how to spell it.

As a former Utican, I don't know why this would be acceptable. I've never seen anyone spell it that way. I think you're thinking of Attica. Utica is pronounced with a long YU.

You call hamburgers steamed hams? Yes, it's a regional dialect. Uh huh, what region? Uhh, upstate New York. Really? Well, I'm from Utica and I've never heard of steamed hams. Oh, not Utica, no! It's an Albany expression!

Universe? There has never been just one thing despite us thinking so in the past - which is why it is more likely than not that we live in a MULTIVERSE.

I guess you dont know what universe means. It literally means "everything" "all there is" "the all" "all in one". Certain languages still use words that mean exactly that in their language, like heelal in dutch which would be whole-all/everything-all.

So regardless of physics, quantum physics and opinions about what reality is and how we came to exist, and what exists out there. The universe means everything, so saying there is more just means it is included.

I know the present day use is drifted more to mean the galaxy, but originally it meant everything conceivable (and inconceivable). Hard to explain by text and in another language. But universe originally meant everything in existence, including time. Not just the world and galaxy we live in.

like I say all there is, you say there is more, well then it is still all there is.
