I am learning 3 languages at once right now and it's NOT ENOUGH LEARNING.

Thinking about taking up irish and german, on top of the russian, spanish, and french I'm doing now.
If someone does the ďFine, youíre right, Iím clearly a terrible person, Iím Satan, Iím the worst person alive, I should just dieĒ thing in response to criticism of their harmful behavior, they are trying to manipulate people and flip the situation around so that they look like a victim.

As a neuroscientist I have to disagree with the perception that anyone is doing mathematical modeling of cognitive intelligence, yet; intelligence as an economist defines it, yes, but economists are worlds away from actual cognition.

It's not ready yet on duolingo. Doesn't evenhave an estimated release date.  I've got it set to notify me when it is.

Hungarian, then.  That is on duo-lingo, and it's linguistic family tree is sufficiently weird that Latin, Germanic and Slavic speakers all struggle with it.

So I've just signed up for 45 hours of evening classes, learning to figure sculpt in meatspace with fistfuls of sticky mud. As a bonus I'll be able to add "Studied at Glasgow School of Art" to my resume. Know who else took evening classes there? Charles Rennie Mackintosh, that's who.

It's a good thing it's not called the Glasgow School of Fine Art, or I might have choked on the coffee I was just drinking.
