Re:
Well, I've just started studying Korean, and (to judge from ... times as many spoken syllables in Korean as in English.

Isn't that because it translates as "I want a drink and may the Blessed Leader Live Forever"?

No - the recordings I use come from South Korean speakers, and explain the grammar, as follows:
Torun mashego shipsumnida
"I" "drink" "want"
(at least, it sounds that way on the recording.
Admittedly, I've gotten only up to Lesson Five.)
"Torun mashego shipsumnida" - nine syllables , no wishes for the immortality of totalitarian psychopaths.

Ask your teacher to tell you how Korean script (one of the world's best inventions) differs from Korean words. To ... how the Chinese has influenced the Korean. There's an argument that you can't understand Korean properly without knowing Chinese first.

Can those of us who don't know either language assume that this argument is about as meritorious as the argument that you can't understand English without understanding Latin first?

MDs and nurses tell me that they use algebra, e.g.,to figure the proper amount and rate of administration for anesthetic.

I suppose that, in a simple minded way, they do as they put numbers into a formula - in other ... It is a rather trivial case, though. Algebra really ought to involve solving quadratic or simultaneous equations at the least!

Tell that to any mathematics major who has studied modern algebra.
That only has any validity because it is so unlikely that anybody ever uses their algebra! A rather less than honest comparison.

MDs and nurses tell me that they use algebra, e.g.,to figure the proper amount and rate of administration for anesthetic.

But only arithmetice is required for that! In fact it's hard to imagine how you could make the problem complicated enough to need algebra.
Unless what they mean is it's algebra if you use a textbook algebraic formula to tell you what arithmetic to do. That's pathetic grandiosity, like calling arithmetic mathematics.

Technically, I think that, if you have 'x' or a box that stands for the unknown, then it is algebra - at least that is the level that they are talking about here.
As I said, it is rather overstating the case not to have any actual working in the algebra in terms of solving equations.

Who does vote for these dishonest shitheads? Who among us can be happy and proud of having all this innocent blood on our hands? Who are these swine? These flag-sucking half-wits who get fleeced and fooled by stupid little rich kids like George Bush?
They are the same ones who wanted to have Muhammad Ali locked up for refusing to kill gooks. the speak for all that is cruel and stupid and vicious in the American character. They are the racists and hate mongers among us - they are the Klu Kux Klan. I *** down the throats of these Nazis. - Hunter S. Thompson in 'Kingdom of Fear'

Hello,
I am Taveau. And I am searching for a coffee cup with says on the cup like: Hire the Left handed they are fun to watch!
Left handed cup only, you are drinking on the wrong side!

Sayings, anything funny, I have searched and I thought maybe some here might know something.
Thank you
Taveau
