Compounding Your Errors

Richard Feynman gives some interesting advice.  If you don't know how to pronounce a word, pronounce it loudly.  Dr. Laura apparently knows the correct pronunciation, she's just confused about appropriate usage.


Interesting about some personalities who use scorn and humiliation for entertainment purposes:  they turn out to have the thinnest of skins.

  1. I'm always misspelling Feynman. (Who has been listening to her, lo these many years? That's what scares me.)

  2. I wonder if Dr. Laura would be offended if someone called her a c**t?

  3. I listened to her show once or twice, but couldn't hack it. She always sounded like she was dealing with so much rage and emotional pain. I don't know how she could hope to help anyone else.

  4. I had to google this. I'm out of the Dr. Laura loop. She's the one who's not really a doctor, right? She just orders people around as if she knows what she's talking about. Unlistenable. But some people need to be told what to do, and are comforted that way. There will be someone else any minute now.

    She looks photoshopped.

  5. Petrea—Bingo on the Photoshopping. It's okay, but not when it makes a person nearly unrecognizable.
