Neuroplasticity vis-a-vis second language acquisition ftw.

Myths and Misconceptions about Second Language Learning

Myth 1: Children learn second languages quickly and easily

Typically, people who assert the superiority of child learners claim that children's brains are more flexible (e.g., Lenneberg, 1967). Current research challenges this biological imperative, arguing that different rates of L2 acquisition may reflect psychological and social factors that favor child learners (Newport, 1990). Research comparing children to adults has consistently demonstrated that adolescents and adults perform better than young children under controlled conditions (e.g., Snow & Hoefnagel-Hoehle, 1978). One exception is pronunciation, although even here some studies show better results for older learners.

4. Sing the anthem at the top of our lungs.
5. Give our dog earmuffs to wear after 8:30 pm
6. Stare at the sky but not to see the stars.
7. Watch out for swerving cars in front and behind you.
8. Please grateful, very grateful for the soil we are standing on.
9. Over eat and make a dieting resolution tomorrow.

French Press probably makes a great cup of coffee, but I simply don't have the time to mess with it. When I wake up, I start the kettle, hope in the shower, then get my filter and coffee ready to pour the water.

I used to hate drinking coffee. Now I got some of this breakfast blend stuff and I love drinking it. Keeps me awake through my work day.

 Huh

I don't understand how French press takes more time than your present way of making coffee. Boiling some water and pouring the boiling water into it along with coffee grounds doesn't really take that much time.

I'm talking more in the cleanup area, unless I am wrong.

All I have to do is throw out the filter, rinse the holder and I'm good.

I use a French press.

All I have to do is throw out the grounds (for compost), rinse the holder/press, and I'm good.

I'll take the press apart every few days when I have a bit of time and give it a more thorough cleaning. Achronos is right. Don't use just a few seconds of your time as an excuse.

Due to the inability of 99% of humanity to detect sarcasm, humor, or when someone is speaking in a way that is not meant to be taken seriously, I will henceforth write in purple whenever I am joking, somewhat-joking, half-heartedly-joking, or being frivolous. I expect this to go over well and be quite helpful.

All I know is that it was in the mid-to-high 80s last night, I was in near-complete-darkness, and it felt horrible.

Did you introduce yourself? Or do you mean that you planned on meeting him there and then did so, in which case I am going to have to reevaluate how much I know about you...

He looked so stoned face when I saw him, like he didn't want to be bothered. Then he pulled out an iPad and my ex-gf decided to introduce herself. It was pretty cool.

I used to hate Angle back when I watched WWE when I was younger, he was too good. I remember the "You Suck" chants. But I don't think that org has seen a better wrestler. Dude deserves mad props for getting an olympic gold medal for wrestling with a broken neck.

I met Lindsey Lohan back in 2005, a little before her crazy 2006 stage. I was in L.A. with my mom and we got stuck in traffic, only to find a limousine stuck right by us as well, the windows were down and it was Lindsey Lohan in the back with like three other girls. I shouted "hi" and waved and she returned the gesture. Say what you want about her being crazy, but she seems pretty humble and down to Earth for a celebrity, given how stuck-up they usually are.

Me too but sometimes pipe-smoking takes too much time. For example it seems a bit impolite to spend 15 minutes outside of a pub alone while friends are waiting. I wish smoking inside pubs was still allowed here.

What kind of pipe(s) you have? What kind of tobacco you're smoking?

I have several different pipes and tobaccos.  Right now I am enjoying some Bullseye Flake in a Medico.  I mostly have Peterson pipes and English tobacco, but I've been enjoying VA's as of late.  I do have one Dunhill pipe, but rarely smoke it.  What about you?

 I too wish we could enjoy tobacco in a pub.

I must admit that I'm quite an amateur with all kind of smoking since I've been smoking for only a year. I have two Briars, one Keywoodie one of which I have no idea what it is.  I'm also fairly ignorant about different types of pipe tobacco but I have W.O. Larsen's 1864, VCPÖ's Selection Nr.3 and Macbaren's Danish Blend.

I'm somewhat suprised to read that indoor-smoking is forbidden in the USA. Are there any variancy between different states?

 I too wish we could enjoy tobacco in a pub.  

I must admit that I'm quite an amateur with all kind of smoking since I've been smoking for only a year. I have two Briars, one Keywoodie one of which I have no idea what it is.  I'm also fairly ignorant about different types of pipe tobacco but I have W.O. Larsen's 1864, VCPÖ's Selection Nr.3 and Macbaren's Danish Blend.

I'm somewhat suprised to read that indoor-smoking is forbidden in the USA. Are there any variancy between different states?

Each state does have different regulations, but most only allow it specific locations, such as a cigar store.

I just found out that the head of Pope St. Lucius is preserved in a reliquary in the catholic cathedral in Copenhagen. I wonder if you can venerate it.

Do you live in Copenhagen? If so it would be easy to find out.

I did not know that.  Now I'm curious to find out how it *got* there.

No, I live in Jutland, but it would only take a couple of hours to get there.

Quote
This relic was brought to Roskilde around the year 1100, after St. Lucius had been declared patron of the Danish region Zealand. There had been demons at large at the Isefjord at Roskilde city[citation needed], and as they declared that they feared nothing but Lucius' skull, this had to be brought to Denmark, whereupon peace took reign of the fjord again.[5] After the Reformation the skull was taken to the exhibition rooms of king Frederik III in Copenhagen, where it was on exhibit along with the petrified embryo a woman had carried inside her for 28 years, as well as other monstrosities the king had collected—until it was transferred to Copenhagen's National museum. Pope St. Lucius' head is among the few relics to have survived the Reformation in Denmark.

When we were getting ready to go out on Sunday morning she said "You aren't going there with me are you?" referring to the UU church I should have known that it wasn't going to work out.

Wilhelm Kattwinkel
(1966-1935)

Louis Leakey, who was especially known for his discoveries in the Olduvai Gorge, falsely labeled William Kattwinkel as a "butterfly collector" who accidentally unearthed the fossils deposit. His misrepresentation was taken up in subsequent literature.

I prefer smoking a pipe, like I'm doing right now. Grin

Me too but sometimes pipe-smoking takes too much time. For example it seems a bit impolite to spend 15 minutes outside of a pub alone while friends are waiting. I wish smoking inside pubs was still allowed here.

What kind of pipe(s) you have? What kind of tobacco you're smoking?
I have several different pipes and tobaccos.  Right now I am enjoying some Bullseye Flake in a Medico.  I mostly have Peterson pipes and English tobacco, but I've been enjoying VA's as of late.  I do have one Dunhill pipe, but rarely smoke it.  What about you?

 I too wish we could enjoy tobacco in a pub.  

I must admit that I'm quite an amateur with all kind of smoking since I've been smoking for only a year. I have two Briars, one Keywoodie one of which I have no idea what it is.  I'm also fairly ignorant about different types of pipe tobacco but I have W.O. Larsen's 1864, VCPÖ's Selection Nr.3 and Macbaren's Danish Blend.

In Chicago there is this silly law one has to be at least 15 feet away from the door of a public establishment in order to be able to smoke.

LOL. Is it actually enforced?
