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.

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

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).

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

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

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
