I'm not sure I understand. We make different words by emphasizing different syllables too.

corRECT!

It's hard to write the tonation of chinese on a basic keyboard.

I know that their syllables are either rising, falling, high, or low, and that each one is different, but that's hard to type out, you're right, and conceptually it's pretty foreign as well. Interesting that they make a distinction somehow, though.

Did you know that Prozac was only successfully marketed to Japan when they began calling depression "a cold of the soul"? Prior to that dynamite marketing campaign, the Japanese thought it was perfectly normal to feel miserable sometimes and as such went unmedicated.

No but given the culture of Japan that's perfectly reasonable.

Seriously though, enough bitching about "Today, we all are..." It's a thing. It's not going anywhere.

You know, you're right. With dummies like you frequenting this site, it's clearly not going anywhere.

Without coming out for or against the propagation of the I Am A Cardinal meme, I will say that I should have liked to have had a discussion on mental illness in sports without everyone getting so buttshook.

They're just ganging up on you because your views differ from their own. Like in high school.

I assumed it was a rip on me, because JQK can't ignore me. But I'm not getting the wheelchair reference?

Today, we are all Jets who never left the runway.

You know....the "Today...we are...." crap is making any death thread unreadable at this point. Just my opinion, and I'm sure a few shots will be fired off in my direction for voicing it....So be it.

To be honest, I found that one to be mildly amusing.

JQK, clear that up for me? Or did you turn tail? I'm just wondering how that could've possibly been PotD or PotY, when apparently only you and ICS know what it meant.

So, I tried to go the PM route to get clarification on JQK's comment that didn't make any sense. He meekly refused to explain, so I'm left to guess. Does he think I'm wheelchair bound? If he does, does he think it's okay to include that as part of an insult? ICS, you thought that his post was PotY material, you must understand what it meant. Enlighten us?

I thought you've stated before that you're in a wheelchair due to your condition / namesake? If I thought it then it's reasonable that someone else did too, though of course that doesn't make the post any more necessary.
