    My training has been cancelled. 🙁  Mum said “How on EARTH could I (her) have caused that to happen. What are you? FIVE?”  I didn’t get cake, though, so she easily could  ‘do’ weather. I’m sure words with Rain God are totally within her powers.

    In fairness the tread was because she has to lift a drip…. which in our house has to be…[Read more]

    Mum is coming up the stairs. She has a heavy tread. It’s like a scary horror flick.

    I may not be modded but I’ll take my punishment if I am (but Mum started it. LOL). Worse (maybe) I’m threatened with no dessert!

    And I like cake 🙁

    Yep. Oops. You got that right. I (T16) was responding to ….oxygen bubbles and throwing up ….in them…..

    As you were. AAAnd I stole that line from Puro The Elder.

    @juniperfish  re #64600

    I think “connotations of greater informality” =  pejorative.

    @Cathannabel yes, that sounds really good to me. I think mum meant something like this. I do know Russell’s tea-pot and from a brief discussion before she nodded off on Sofa we delved into how low pitch is modelled in experiments across species and she m…[Read more]

    @ichabod

    Oh come on. @miapatrick and I are throwing up. FOR SURE.

    I should add if one wishes to ad lib or write stories go to fan wank fiction thread.

    T16 (and I’m the younger one! Jeckers H. Cripes)

    Yeah, I’ll be modded off. But I will not stand for stupid and neither will The Mother!

    @ichabod

    Low voices show pitch relationships. Words like “authoritative” are stimulated from data modelling when recent CTs and MRIs show low pitch calming to most but not all species. Sometimes there’s a Russell TeaPot on the boil when small words like “authority” emerge from larger concepts via modelling discussions.

    Logical atomism, it can…[Read more]

    Futher Mucking Hell! That’s SO good. Much better than Chibber’s (That poor kid scolded for shoving tooth-face off the crane and doing something nasty. Jodes and crane-man should’ve hi-fived, personally. But I reckon Whedon would probably do it Chibber’s way.). But back to yours. My pals at Yale would bloody love it. But I recall…[Read more]

    Too much morphine clearly, “it’s on film”

    Really? The bit where I said “aspirin?? shit!” except it was ibuprofen.

    Christ, it IS on film: and that’s obviously quite embarrassing.  Particularly now.

    As you were.

    @bluequeakpip.

    Mm? Yes, I had heard of that issue -with eyewitnesses.

  • thane16 replied to the topic The Maldovarium

    @pedant

    Anecdote is not the singular of evidence.

    Well, yes, see, because you can call it “anecdote” or a “story.” And either way the issue/anecdote/thing that happened DID actually happen. Did I write down everything that was said? Yes. Did I repeat it to another who wrote it also? Yes.

    And….

    Was it even on film? YES. The store caught it.…[Read more]

    You’re right, it’s an anti-inflammatory.  I got that quite wrong.

    Stories are important. Why else vlog a Diabetes story?

    @pedant (soz, this is really the last post): if personal experience is the beginning of discourse and if discourse leads to group discussion and if THAT discussion leads to the decision to create surveys, or further study and if that study then leads to even more experiences listed in say, one place or many places then “stories” are the back-bone…[Read more]

    @pedant

    Thankyou. It looks like a top book and obviously very necessary (the “very” is the funny part. I hear at school things like “very unique, very very clever, really pregnant….LOL)

    And I have a lot to learn. I keep forgetting “thank you” is not one word.

    Mum would of said: “yee-hah”

    Thank you.  🙂

    Clarity didn’t happen did it?

    What was meant, I reckon (but now I can’t ask her) was:

    • read the packet
    • know what’s in it
    • most Doctors believe aspirin is pretty good
    • some Doctors don’t like aspirin (probably those who haven’t kept up with the research)…..so
    • keep up with the research
    • read the literature and know from which a…

    @mudlark thank you Ms Mudlark. I appreciate it.

    @pedant  Blimey:

    We need, say:

    multiple examples (really?)
    that are representative of the population and chosen at random
    in which the experimenter is blind to the selection (OMG, seriously?)
    And in the case where the sample is people, the people are also blind (so don’t know if they are ge…

    @pedant Hi I have read this information (finally) on the Pub pgs . You said :

    PSA: Anecdote is not the singular of evidence.

    What did that mean?

    There was discussion of something to do with aspirin which indicates excellent health benefits for people with heart conditions. So, one more day for Episode 2.

  • thane16 replied to the topic The Maldovarium

    @pedant

    I liked that. Mum showed me the first one you made a few weeks ago? Really liked the ‘ums’ sped up. Hope you’re not in agony at all. Or it’s bearable.

    Thane.

    @notime

    Yep, it’s called the Opening Title or Title sequence or Intro as opposed to “outro.”

    @madtimetravellingscot A narrative in this instance was a called plot. ‘A’  happened then ‘B’ then ‘C’ with lots of discussion about what was happening in between. Felt like a very real situation: whether travelling on late night “ghost train” or “siege…[Read more]

    I’m not sure about the fact that Graham has cancer.

    OK. Sorry, why?

    I look a million dollars and I’m half dead. No kidding. I have a paramedic watching this as I type and he’s performing a truly hideous job/procedure (these doods get paid far too little).  Yesterday I was in the garden for 4 hours. Last night I had some peeps over fo…[Read more]

    Agreed. I imagine it won’t just be one baddie after another. I do recall in Buffy (and I aint no expert) that there were quite a few monsters of the week but it was in between the monsters where the characters’ growth occurred.

    No, not at all! We should have been clearer. I get what you mean, I also really loved Grace. She was everything you’d want in a character -in a real life person. Maybe they created her to be so very loving and positive so we’d feel that loss with a lot more ache? So, all in all I think it’s a hard thing to do: to let her die rather…[Read more]
