What, did your excitation result from heightened neural activity in your amygdalas and frontal cortex and increased DA availability through the mesolimbic pathway from the ventral tegmental area to the nucleus accumbens
Nah. We are talking English here - Queen's, Harry Potter's, traditional, modern, simplified, English english and American English.
What language are you talking?

Come on Mark. No-one said the queen is not English! Everyone knows the queen's English (with a lot of German heritage!)
And Harry Potter, he is English too.
We just refer to out as the queens English. Of course, English has not been English as we know it for all that long. No more than 400 years ago, it sounded more like German than English

That Dora kid is really smart, bilingual at age 5, trained her monkey well, discovered a map that can speak, invented a backpack that can carry anything and everything at the same time, yet she's pretty bad at directions and can count only up to three.

I don't either, but I can't sleep while I'm driving, and my daughter had to watch that show over and over again during road trips when she was younger. It wasn't really watching, but it's sort of like watching!

I can't remember the last tomato I had that didn't have the texture of an apple and the flavor of a rice cake.


That is very sad. Commercial food is such a let down on what it could be.


In my travels I have noticed that people in countries where food is thought of as something to be especially enjoyed appear to be thinner and healthier than in those where food is regarded like fuel, on both the supply and consumer side.

Ok. I have never heard of Spanglish, but we all know Chinglish - that is the language used in instruction manuals for so many commodities that come principally from PRC.

Ahh, yes! My Yongnuo flashes came with Chinglish, and after reading, I don't know whether I'd laugh or cry.
