talking

It’s amazing how so little talk can do so much.

I used to think that it as language that set us humans apart from animals. Intelligent conversation. Boy, was I wrong.

It’s actually, according to a German scientist that appeared on Charlie Rose recently, imitation. We have the ability to mimic other peoples’ actions, words, thoughts.

But then there’s the mockingbird. And then I’m like “what? oh well.”

I’m also wrong about intelligent conversation because we don’t exactly have intelligent conversation a lot of the time.

Edit: This is post #100. Yay. *fireworks*
