Fun with Language

I came across this the other day and found it really interesting. It's all about how the language you speak can effect your perception of the world. I was particularly fascinated by the concept of how language relates to spatial positioning. Ordering time from East-West (rather than left-right as we do) or putting the future behind the past. Anyways - enjoy :) Lost in Translation: does language influence culture?

And because it amused me and seems to go along with that link:

So I saw the movie Inception the other day. What I wouldn't give to be able to write like that! One of those stories that makes you wonder about the mind that came up with it *g*. Gotta say though, without giving anything away, I had the ending completely nailed pretty well as soon as the idea was introduced. Everything leading up to the ending though -- that I was nowhere near :)

Woke up @ 3:30 this am. Wide awake. Went and got a drink and the cats didn't even bother begging for breakfast -- that's a sign it's definitely too early t be up. Went back to bed. Couldn't sleep, so about 4 gave up and got ready for work (at which point the cats got very excited for a night snack :). It's a *really* easy drive in @ 4:30 in the am. hahaha N I was half done my day when the others were just getting in. Excellent.

Less than 2 days on the countdown!
