people who bite into ice cream absolutely terrify me
A writer for the new york times interviewed a series of people who had survived jumping off the golden gate bridge. Every person she interviewed admitted that about two thirds of the way down, they realized that every seemingly meaningless problem that caused them to jump was fixable.
Every single one.
THIS IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT
It’s barely 8AM here and already I’ve learned a valuable lesson in Spanish:
(el) jugo/zumo con pulpa = juice with pulp
(el) jugo/zumo con pulpo = juice with octopus
An important difference.
An actual conversation from my first trip to Spain:
Me: Hay zumo sin pulpo?
Clerk: Son todos sin pulpo.
So it turns out you can be dyslexic in one language but not another, depending on the kind of linguistic processing problem you have. For example, if you have trouble with phonemes, if can be hard to learn alphabetic writing systems like English, but easier to learn logographic writing systems like Chinese. China has dyslexic people obvs, but they seem to have different stuff going on in their brain than English dyslexic people. Huh.
