A dilemma

Guise, I don’t know what to write about. I mean, I have a couple of drafts:

1) one about politeness in response to some common fallacies, like “politeness is just a form of empathy”

2) one about BrE/AmE

3) one about fundamentalism

4) one about reading, interpretation, and fundamentalism

You can vote, if you wanna.

So instead I bring you:

(sauce) <— sadly, the trolling was already noticed and deleted :(

Without comment, because it doesn’t need any.

(Well, not really, because I thought it might possibly cleverly refer to this:

In January 2006, West again sparked controversy when he appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone in the image of Jesus wearing a crown of thorns

(sauce)

So there)

I swear I will have something interesting next time ^^;;;;;;;;;;;

    BrE/AmE! Especially if it focuses on how BrE is better than AmE. If it doesn’t, hell, go on then. I’d love to read it regardless of your stance ^^J

    Of course the “1) one about politeness in response to some common fallacies, like “politeness is just a form of empathy””

    ^^v

    • I didn’t think people would actually vote ^^;;;;;; *had another troll-post planned*

      Yeah, it’s the one I want to finish most, but it’s. Um. Over 1500 words already and I’m not even halfway done ^^;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

      British English More Natural, Scientists Say

      A recent survey analysis carried out by a team of evolutionary psychologists at LSE suggests that British English might be more intuitive and more natural, and thus easier for human brains to learn. “It’s very likely that British English, a dialect of English that has been around for a very long time,” so says the team leader Hitoshi Kanazawa, “and yet survived until today. It is also used internationally and widely considered to be very easy to learn. We think that English, especially its British dialect, might be the language that is actually closest to the language used by our savannah ancestors thousands of years ago”.

      90% of the responders of the survey claimed that British English is the easiest language they have ever learned, with over 60% claiming it to be the only language they can speak fluently. “British English” was most frequently associated with such adjectives as “good”, “nice”, “pleasant”, “natural”, “poetic”, “educated”, and “high-brow”. The language most frequently associated with concepts such as “strange” and “uncivilised” was Polish, while the one responders classified as most “foreign” was Urdu.
