Just a thought Perakh, Mark Mar 14, 2006
Although I am shaking in fear of jsavejus's pointing to holes in "my theory," I am trying to overcome that fear and reply herewith to his/her eloquent letter. I say "thank you" to jsavejus first for his/her bravery (which is what has apparently made him/her use a pseudonym instead of the real name), as well as for the perfect English, great erudition, and impeccable logic. Now I see the light! If Chinese do not "embrace my theory," it must be wrong, right?

Mark Twain wrote that some reader asked him whether eating fish makes one smarter, and if so, how much fish would he recommend eating every day. Mark Twain responded that, judging from the letter of that correspondent, a whale of average size would be about right for him. I would not recommend jsavejus a whale; a couple of sharks might suffice. Try this, say, for six months, and then come to TalkReason again - if any change will be noticeable, it only can be an improvement.
