Okay. You're right. I shouldn't expect people to read the OP. Next time, I'll just have the topic in the title and not type an OP.Sorry Icy, but you were the one that failed to get your point across. That's evidenced by the fact that everyone missed the point you were trying to make. To fault everyone else (including me, incorrectly) for not reading the entire post is shameful.
Lol. That made me laugh. He has been.........waaay off" with a lot of topics lately >.>Okay, Kaz was waaay off...
But your topic is not the same as mine. I mean, in a manner of speaking, it is waaay off also. You were simply speaking mathematics in a manner that everyone can learn, and in ways that were influenced by the conditions you were taught under. Meaning that it could be changed to suit the individual better. I was speaking of ways that generaly can't be helped. As in the laguage itself. Sure, we can change words, but to change the entire system of math in the English language...? Well, I can't say that it is impossible since Japan did it quite a few times (>.>), but is does seem rather unreasonable with the vast amount of speakers of English....but if you look at my first reply, it suits both a grammatical topic and the mathematic topic you intended. I simply stated that on different playing fields (thus generating a segway from your post to mine), English speakers have the advantage. Yet, you still gave it a negative response.
Actually, now that I am reading it...almost nothing in your post connects with anything. Not even the information within your post. You're trying to justify that Latin-based languages have the advantage with math by stating that they have the concept of "or." Maybe I'm a little slow, but you're going to have to give me reasons on 1) what that even has to do with math (what you were trying to justify) and 2) how that provides mathematical advantages in any way. You were off with the Asian comment...I tried to make it clear that that wasn't the message. If you didn't see that, then that is your bad, not mine.
It's okay if you introduce something new (I guess), but all of that was just...off. Am I unclear with what I mean by "natural?" I don't mean the smartness level or the environment or the teachers. Nothing that can be helped. With that being said, I do not mean diseases or anything that can impair learning. I mean the actual language itself. According to numerous tests (I can find more websites it anyone wants, but...isn't my post "too long" already?), because of the actual number words themselves, it is easier to learn numbers and discover a pattern and recognize base ten. I can explain this, but it would take a lot of words in addition to what I have already written (I wouldn't mind at all! But...who would read that much...? Besides me, I mean >.>). 'Sides, you can learn somethan new and discover new reasons to hate your life! Fun! (Not YOUR personally, but generally). Actually, making a thread about that sounds rather fun! But..it would generally be...pointless? *Cries*
I'm not mad. It's not my fault if you guys firstly, don't read the entire OP, and then secondly, don't understand something clearly stated because of not reading the OP. Your logic desn't work here, Ace, because, apparently you are the only person who supposedly read the whole OP. Kaz clearly didn't, and Bunny stated that he didn't. Well, sort of. I don't understand how I could make it any clearer. I really don't. It doesn't bother me. I've posted this on other websites and have pages and pages of responses. Those are keeping me busy, so no worries. Yes, some people don't get it, but they are the ones who obviously have not read the OP (giving replies like Kaz's <.< and over the wall things that have nothing to do even with learning ).I think you're mad because you didn't get the responses you wanted, whatever those might've been. Perhaps, "Icy, you're the smartest guy ever!" Not this time, ace.
Not ever, Ace. I would never think that I was a guy!
Now on to the Free Will thread!
