    If I ignore the forum, what will I do with all my "free" time. Did I hear you say,"Practice"? :D

    No, but I was thinking it. Good mental telepathy pickup.

    TJ sez:
    Look at the theories and scientific verbiage being tossed around here, contradicting each other.

    I'm trying to find the scientific verbage and contradictions. Can you identify what they are?

    Just look, the scientific terms are there ---



    "hard as heck"

    "oooo is an 'ought'"

    "piehole"

    Don't worry, TJ - I understood what you are saying, and I agree entirely.

    We learn by feel.

    Markie, here's some scientific verbiage:

    pivot system
    wavelengths and Newton's Law
    mathematically predictable areas of high pressure
    nodes and anti-nodes
    Zen Vulgano Philosophy
    20 Bbm in a week
    raise your tongue
    arch your tongue
    nadir and apex of slurs
    between two botes
    aperature posture
    the Bernoulli Priciple
    the Venturi Effect




    :stars:

    Ahem...you forgot "Adiabatic Lapse Rate."
    That pretty much completes the list.
