• Why do people lose their accents when they move into an area with a different accent? What are chances of developing one at a specific age?

    I live in California throughout my entire life and I asked because I noticed some of the people who moved here from the Southern States (mostly North Carolina, Alabama, and Georgia, some of them 12-17 years old) often lose their accents later on and adopted the same accent as us.

    I live in California throughout my entire life and I asked because I noticed some of the people who moved here from the Southern States (mostly North Carolina, Alabama, and Georgia, some of them 12-17 years old) often lose their accents later on and adopted the same accent as us. However, some foreigners or southerners who moved here in their 20s or older often kept the same accent as they were before. Hell, Arnold Schwarzenegger still speaks in his Austrian accent in all of the films he starred lately (and still today) but lived in the USA throughout his entire life since 1968 (not to mention he became governor of this state in 2003-2009). I wonder why. I also wondering what type of age would you develop one faster if moved into an area with a different accent...

    A lot of singers do this, such as Ariana Grande, Beyonce, and Lady Gaga. How come you see their shoulders and chest raising up when they breathe but not their stomach? For example, watch this video. Every time she breathes in watch her chest, you can see it expand and goes upwards... show more

  • Omg - Bobby Jindal (R) Gov of LA, has now announced his presidential bid. Isn't there a limit on how many can run?

    Best answer: I believe your actual question is how many clowns can fit into a clown car? I believe that as long as there are clowns not in the car, there is room for another. It has something to do with clowntum physics and Feinstein's theory of Republican Irrelativity. e=mc(2) elections= money times conservatives squared.... show more

It has something to do with clowntum physics and Feinstein's theory of Republican Irrelativity. e=mc(2) elections= money times conservatives squared. Republicans are irrelevant and negatively charged so they attract massive amounts of politically charged donations. Where there is money, there are always politicians gravitating to it like mosquitoes to a black hole.

  • Should i tell this lady to back off from my husband?

    Best answer: Okay so first off don't get territorial just yet! What you have to do is you have to be Alpha about this. Make yourself known. If she's in a room with your husband go stand by your husband's side, give him a hug, kiss him, etc. Do something that lets her know "hey this is mine back off"... show more
    Best answer: Okay so first off don't get territorial just yet! What you have to do is you have to be Alpha about this. Make yourself known. If she's in a room with your husband go stand by your husband's side, give him a hug, kiss him, etc. Do something that lets her know "hey this is mine back off" without actually saying it. This happens to us guys all the time. I'll be with a girl and she'll get hit on so i'll have to go and let the dude know that "hey she's with me" but I don't start throwing fisticuffs off the bat. If this doesn't work then you might have to consider that A: she's nuts or B: she's really got a thing for your man. If it's B which is best case scenario then you may have to pull her aside out of the way (don't embarrass her) and tell her "hey look I don't appreciate you constantly wanting to put your hands on my husband so please stop" if it's A and she's nuts that can be hard to deal with and it may involve other things that I won't get into. I would just make your presence known and see how things progress. I'm not there with you so I can't really tell what this woman is doing. I wouldn't rule out that she may just be super friendly. I've had people like that who I think are super into me and it turns out they are just really really really friendly in a really creepy way.

  • Do you think Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's apology was genuine?

    Best answer: He's just scared of dying. I'm sure all his victims were scared to die too but he didn't care when he killed them so why should we believe him now?
