Hey. We are both pains in the asses. It's all good!

And I have been told many times that I also see things from a different slant.

It really is all good.

It's even worse when one is the type of person who thinks the best compliment they ever got was 'Newtboy doesn't think the way normal people do.' That's certainly not helpful when attempting internet communication, and maddening for all when people invariably expect you to read into their posts and understand some unwritten or miss-written parts...something I am completely incapable of doing properly.
Thanks for not bailing just because I'm a sesquipedalian pain in the ass.

That was fascinating.

I've been sitting here saying pay and bay and listening to the difference. Wow. Never even knew.

Silent on losing nouns first, memory-wise, that article. I really really REALLY want to know if that is cross-language. I'd bet a whole dollar it is. And I usually only bet a nickel.

I just saw this article linked from digg, and after we were talking about it a few weeks ago thought you might be interested -

Hard for me to wrap my mind around this kind of language. How does something like this evolve? Are they more musical than Western languages? Fascinating.

(And yeah, do they lose nouns and not verbs? There is a question to be researched!)

oritteropo said:

Yes, like Chinese (all Chinese dialects are tonal). It's a language where pitch affects the meaning of the word. Jimbo's big bag'o'trivia has an entry on it here -

In Cantonese for instance, both a fork and a cup of tea are "cha" but with different tones (tea is tone 4 low falling and fork is tone 1 high falling, I think, and lets just not mention the other cha which is fried). The list (for Cantonese) is:

1 - High Falling
2 - Middle Rising
3 - Middle Level
4 - Low Falling
5 - Low Rising
6 - Low Level

Oh lord. I remembered this from five years ago. Yikes.

Music is different, so not a dupe.

Ah. I wondered. I saw a "news" report about a type of person called a "super recognizer." They have the ability to recognize celebrities from old photos (and probably have other recognizing abilities, too.)

I'm not a super recognizer, but I am a pretty dang good recognizer. I can't see anyone BUT Jack Black in that screen shot.

I'm losing the ability now. Not that I don't know who the people are -- I just can't remember names now!

Interesting factoid -- as you age, you lose the ability to recall nouns. Verbs don't go away. Fascinating. Says something about the evolution of language ot me....

No, I had to click through More obvious in retrospect.

WTF. I have no words.

You may not have words, but the youtube link has PLU-ENTY:

Everybody’s born

Everybody cries

Everybody shits

Everybody dies

Conceived in 2012, Everybody is a giant 26.5m human puppet with articulated, detachable and interactive body parts and organs. Ambitious in scope and subject, it is the largest human puppet on the planet and represents the essential humanness of everybody.

Everybody‘s build is experimental; it’s kind of unimaginable, so big and complex but without high-tech design. Its creation is brute, rough, handmade. Everybody is all genders and multi-racial.

Everybody lies down indoors in theatres, outdoors in parks and in open public spaces. In repose, Everybody sleeps, breaths and stirs. Everybody is not just one puppet but a multitude of independent, roaming human body parts and organs; they are characters in their own epic tale of human existence.

Everybody is an immersive experience. Audiences can walk around, sit on, lie against, get inside, and cuddle up to Everybody and all its beautiful body parts. The giant human puppet is viewed in 360 degrees. Everybody, the experience, is a six-hour interactive art installation, or a 90-minute stage show.

The piece begins with the death of the giant human puppet via a brick thrown at Everybody’s head. The head cracks and its brain oozes out. Everybody watches its life flash before its eyes, from birth through life and ultimately death. Everybody’s now independent body parts and organs perform the journey of its life stages. Everybody is in 4 Acts: Everybody’s Born, Everybody Cries, Everybody Shits, Everybody Dies.

Human performers play audience members or passers-by who find themselves transported into, then flung out of, the brain of Everybody. Everybody is made up of: Mouth, Eye, Poo, Foot, Ear, Nose, Brain, Lungs, Baby, Penis, Vagina, Bum, Skin, Heart, Hand, Guts, Breast and Hair. And with guests, Pig and Brick.

And the dang thing was long. And still I bopped and wiggled and grinned.

This is hands down the most best thing I've seen in months, dance related or otherwise. My cheeks hurt from grinning.
