Q: Does English kill you?

1. The Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than the English

 

2. The Mexicans eat a lot of fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than the English.

 

3. The Chinese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than the English.

 

4. The Italians drink a lot of red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than the English.

 

5. The Germans drink a lot of beers and eat lots of sausages and fats and suffer fewer heart attacks than the English

 

CONCLUSION Eat and drink what you like. Speaking English is apparently what kills you

 

With thanks to some FB friends.

It is eating too many hamburgers and junk food that kills you, not English! He he, I said: "food"! (Drunk!

MondoRosa:

That's pretty funny, lol. Until you said "FB friends," I figured this was part of your provided curriculum or something.

Not FBI, just FB. It means Facebook, it is a web site for people who do not loose face.

I think you posted this as a joke, but let me say a few things about risk factors for heart attack.

They include genetic factors such as: gender (men are more likely to get heart attack), age, and inborn errors in metabolism; and environmental factors such as: hypertension, diabetes, unhealthy eating habits, smoking, alcohol,stressful life style, etc.

You can't choose your genes, but you can choose what kind of lifestyle you want to lead, and when it comes to statistics, it doesn't work at the individual level, so you either get heart attack or you don't get it.

If speaking any language will cause me to get a heart attack it will definitely be speaking Chinese . BTW, I am a non-native speaker, but I don't and won't teach English (in case anyone wants to comment on my language skills).

GuilinRaf:

Ahhh!sad

You are an insult to all English teachers everywhere!sad

You s hould be whipped for even thinking of speaking English!sad

 

Naaaaaa, I'm just messing with you. 

I really wish my students English were half as "bad" as yours.cheeky

Then again, if their English is bad, I guess I really only have myself to blame.

Oh Man! I suck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!cool

Haha. @GuilinRaf, just make sure you tell your students you met a foreigner online whose English skills were worse than theirs! See if they can believe it. @ Hulk, safe journey back home. You disappeared for sometime, and I was worried you may have gone HULK on someone then god forbid...(u know what i mean.

The Chinese suffer less heart attacks than the English because you need one in the first place before you can have the attack.

Hulk:

LOL!!!

 

That one caught me off-guard.

Sugars, flours (yes even whole grains) are the issue. Not animal fat.
