That "vocal fry" is when a person's voice, especially a young woman's, gets all "creaky" at the ends of their sentences. Apparently this is some kind of new trend among young women in the US for some reason. I never really noticed it until someone mentioned it, but no that I have it just makes them sound all tired and submissive. Then I started wondering if my own voice sounded that way, but it sounds pretty clear to me. I think. Just occasionally a teeny bit creaky, maybe? Could be just my age, or the heat and humidity? I really don't want to sound like my vocal cords need oiling. :oops:

that there's a type of cancer that is visible and takes several years to become serious, which means you have years to detect it before it starts affecting your health.

Apparently not bothering anyone is a sign of autism.

Then there's bothering anyone with it.

What is it then?! :roll:
Is this another of those being emotional and not emotional debate?

Of course. Why not. :lol: And this is just added on a growing list of contradictions.

That truffles were once seen as "peasant food" because they came out of the ground.
Kind of like lobster and rabbit, actually.

^I don't mean that rabbits and lobsters come out of the ground like truffles actually. Well rabbits maybe, since they normally tunnel underground. :)

that it is common in traffic accidents that the person that is run over gets grated against the asphalt like cheese against a grater, and the bones get exposed.

Not to base my philosophy based on an old British song that doesn't speak to me anymore.

Just because win a large amount of money on a slot machine doesn't mean that you've going to keep winning on that machine. It's better to collect and go home.
