    Whenever I meet Chinese people they want me to talk my dialect because it is so 'fun'. I must be the token pet.

    ... then on to the physicists (mmh, laserquest)

    I speak mandarin actually, but with a strong Sichuan accent (who cares about s, sh, ch, z anyway). Pure dialect rules though, still need to find someone who speaks it.

    My cousin went to Univeristy of ChongQing... They (she and her friends) apparently dubbed a classic comedy film in SiChuan dialect... unfortuantely, the tapes are now lost .

    Yeah, I can imagine that comedy in Sichuan must sound great ... e.g. it's a good dialect to swear in. You know/have seen/have 'borrowed' that movie Balzac and the little Chinese seamstress? They talk dialect there it's quite good.

    Huh? what? Balz-what?

    There isn't much swearing in that film... the dialect just makes everything sounds funnier, which is great! (actually, some characters are dubbed with sichuan dialect, some are dubbed with dialects from other places... the whole thing is basically mayhem).

    D.E... the source of all great joy... if you can say that. I'm just happy that I'm not doing maths. IB compsci is really easy going at the moment. At this rate, I might even have time for a Christmas Ball this year :eek:.

    Ah, so that was you. But that's not quite right

    You actually spoke to me, although I wasn't very helpful (sorry ) because I never am and I was a bit stressed because practicals are just like that.
    wait, so you were the guy on the left hand side of the bench directly behind me (if you are facing forward)?

    Yep, loving that yellow flag - made my life soooooo much easier yesterday morning

    I really should read the lecture list - I had this unshakeable belief that I had 9ams every day, so without consulting it, off I trotted, only to find that I didn't, and my lecture theatre was full of neuroscientists! Felt a bit silly

    Yep.

    So much for being mysterious. Now four people on here know who I am!

    i had a regular lunch, but am regretting it now. I have a physio test in about 15 mins, which within it involves 4 minutes of what can only be described as exercise to absolute failure. I fear wretching!
