I also learned that the government will force us to have a president that he majority of voters voted against. Hooray for stupidity!

You made the same mistaken Trump made. Obama actually captured a majority of the popular vote. But I agree that the electoral college system is stupid.

I had one box of orange Nerds left today. I decided I'd dump the entire contents in my mouth at once. Now, I already knew Nerds had a bit of a bite to them when eaten a few at a time, but I learned today just how intense an entire box of those things can be when you put it all in your mouth at the same time. Needless to say, I haven't experienced a flavor explosion of that magnitude in quite some time.

The "sixth sick sheik's sixth sheep's sick" is said to be the toughest tongue twister in the English language.

Astounding isn't it?

I learned that, in certain nations, an operating room is sometimes called an "operating theater"... and that it's also common for there to be a general practitioner in small villages in England!

Can anyone tell what I've been watching?

I learned from my friend in school that the Grinch, in the movie with actors, is often seen nacked in front of children. Also I am apperently now rich from B-day money a month later.

Isn't that wonderful?

I wouldn't call it tough, just tedious. I can say it just fine without a single slip of the tongue, but all those consonant sounds running together take a long time to pronounce as far as pronunciation goes, so it's really only difficult physically and not mentally like most tongue twisters are.

I didn't know there were other Doc Martin fans in the community. Welcome to Portwenn.
