That's a good way to use those extra letters, somewhat like the French. :biggrin:

But it's not as bad as invisible letters, which apparently GW Bush sees in words such as nuclear, which he pronounces as nu'-cu-lar. :biggrin:

I am so un lucky with words. one time some one took my, "Ps", then
some one pinched my," Rs", and now i have to many, "Bs". :grumpy:

Oh really Sir? Whenever your hands are free? My hands aren't usually free! And the worst thing is I can stop myself from doodling most of the time. (On paper or even my hand:blushing:)

Doing doodles on your hand is not healthy, did you read the hand washing thread. :biggrin:

I tend to play with my hair when I'm lost in thought. A professor once told me, he could judge how well his lecture went by the braid in my hair. :uhh:

There's nothing to be ashamed of Wolram. I sometimes twiddle my hobbits when I have nothing better to do also.

Ditto.
Why don't we have it yet? Are they afraid it will be misused upstairs?

From what I've read about neurology this isn't simply a habit. What it means, actually, is that YOU HAVE BEEN POSSESSED BY SATAN!

Yeah, sleeping is a nasty habit. I've tried to quit several times, but I can't stay awake long enough to get through the withdrawal symptoms. :rolleyes:
