  2. Always tempted to try this one out on a test, but I'm also just as hesitant that I'll just be dunning-krugering myself, you know?

    1. Do tell what a "dunning-krugering" is. It sounds painful, and illegal.

    2. Haha, no, no, it's nothing so bad as that. The dunning-kruger effect is the name given to when a person doesn't even have enough knowledge/ability/skills to recognize their mistakes, and so they think they're fantastic at whatever they're doing. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dunning%E2%80%93Kruger_effect

    4. The only problem with this "alcohol treatment" is that you can't quite remember what you said and how you said it...

  3. Lime has conjointly been found useful as a home remedy for inflammatory disease. The acid found in lime may be a solvent of acid that is that the primary explanation for some forms of inflammatory disease. The juice of 1 lime, diluted with water, is also taken once each day, ideally very first thing within the morning.

    1. That's how spammers bypass the filters. Some (most?) spam filters gauge the probability that a post is spam by the percentage of the post that seems suspicious. So the spammers set up bots to post their affiliate links or what have you, but they set them up to sample big blocks of text from other websites.

  4. It works! My English was always better when I got little bit drunk :D. My sober friends confirmed. But I think ti works just in the initial process of learning it... :D

    1. Yeah definitely, because the only thing alcohol really does is dampen your fear of making mistakes.

  5. After the Weichnachtsfeier my colleagues suggested me coming to work drunk. They said my German improved substantially after the fourth beer.
