It's not affective to mental health if you know she does not exist, neither if you are well-versed with your imagination nor talking to her as a defensive mechanism. I mean, I dated Marisa on Valentine's Day, I'm not supposed to give a fuck about it because I'm practically single, but I still dated her because she's my beloved. It's not "maladaptive" at all if you know the reality of the situation, but choose to date my fantasy in a way that people would neither detect nor notice.

Okay~ I was just saying coz I was just worried about the health of your mind.

Yeah, it's an inferior computer. And there's no mount for the keyboard and mouse, so it's hard to surf.

It's a very distant and indirect relationship. Linguistics has no direct relation to the study of swallowing and its disorders.

To be honest, I'm not a linguist by profession. Rather, I studied it intensively in my undergraduate career and now being out of undergrad, I maintain connections to my linguistic interests by learning and comparing languages and going to school for a related field: speech-language therapy. This field concerns a number of things, some intuitive given the name and some not so much. Beginning with the intuitive things, it concerns correcting speech-sound errors such as any form of lisping (the "s" -> "th" isn't the only lisp out there!), gliding (conversion of "l" or "r" into "y" or "w", e.g. red -> wed), vowelization/vocalization (dropping of "r" after a vowel and using a close approximate, e.g. water -> "wado"), etc. Moving on, a lot of people don't know the difference between speech and language, since the difference isn't significant enough to know in daily language. Speech concerns the physical act of producing sounds for the purpose of speaking, while language concerns the neurologically-based functions of thinking up a message, encoding the message (figuring out the correct grammar, finding the right words) knowing social language cues, sending brain signals to appropriate structures for production of speech, and hearing an auditory signal, determining that it's someone talking to you, and decoding the message; of course this list is not all-inclusive of language functions. Speech-language therapists therefore also treat disorders of any of these functions of language, which include aphasia (impaired ability at some level to produce or understand language) and impaired pragmatics (if you've ever met a person who just seemed to really suck at communicating, it's possible they have a language disorder in pragmatics [socially-appropriate language use], rather than just being a rude, self-centered asshole).

Now that I've gotten the explanation of the title out of the way, I'll briefly explain not-so-intuitive things that speech-language therapists treat. First is disorders of the voice, which concerns things like treating and rehabilitating disordered voice resulting from cancers, neurologically-based vocal cord problems like paralysis or over/underactivity of the larynx, inappropriate usage of your voice (phonotrauma) resulting in various vocal cord issues like nodules and polyps, unusually high or low voice, unusually loud or soft voice, and others. Makes enough sense, since you kinda need your voice in order to produce speech.

Now here's where it gets kinda funny. You're actually partially right in saying "Maybe there's some sort of connection between linguistics and disorders that have something to do with the mouth." Actually, using speech requires a range of anatomical structures including the mouth, nose, throat, and lungs. Yours was a nice, intuitive guess, though science has not shown them to be very connected, as I said above in the first paragraph. To give a concrete example, simply training the anatomy with non-speech related tasks does not increase their efficiency for speech. Because of this, very likely, the brain stores motor knowledge for both functions in very different ways. Because we need to know these structures and their functions like the back of our hands, we're also put in a special position regarding the swallowing mechanism, which also uses all of those things, including the esophagus and the stomach. We train to have specialized knowledge about all of this and are therefore uniquely qualified to rehabilitate disorders of the swallowing mechanism using therapeutic techniques. This is how linguistics is related to swallowing. It's hardly related at all, but through the practice of speech-language therapy, it's connected.

That said, speech-language therapists obviously specialize in a certain area. I used to be on a path to medical school, so I'm really attracted to more "medical, hospital-based" treatment, as opposed to speech and language "clinic or school-based" treatment. That's where swallowing and voice come into my life. I naturally gravitated towards these things, so currently I'm working in specializing in swallowing and voice, before probably actually getting back on the medical school path with emphasis on research and otolaryngology. This is why I went to a conference about research on swallowing disorders.

Because it allows me to combine some element of all of those things. Speech-language therapy was the result when I summed my interests in psychology, medicine (biology, chemistry, physics, and mathematics), and linguistics, which were the three things I studied in college.

Alot of the following information is based off data I've analyzed directly from studies, not second hand sources. Despite only being an undergraduate currently I have a very strong grasp on proper experimental technique and supplement this with reading about critiques of research techniques, borrowed techniques from systems engineering, and a very strong multidisciplinary scientific background. If requested, I can attach PDFs of the most of the works I mention here so you can see the proof yourself.
One of the most frequently stated facts supporters of GMO food claim is that genetically engineered food has been scientifically proven to be completely safe for human consumption. To scientifically prove something is quite a daunting task, one which the biotechnology industry has grossly failed to live up to.


There has never been a single long-term human study to evaluate the safety of genetically modified food. There have been many studies performed on animals, which are then extrapolated to their effect on humans. However, the lack of a long term human study means that any human specific reactions to a compound can be overlooked. Also, to define something as safe for consumption, there are countless ways for it to have an adverse effect on one’s health. Toxicity can be carcinogenic, hormonal, genetic, chemical, etc., and can manifest itself in the first generation or in future generations in the case of genetic toxicity. The only published study on human safety I have heard of is discussed in the next section, and only further shows how little we now about GMO foods.


If a transgenic food is genetically unstable, then there is a significant deal of uncertainty into even testing the safety of that food. Genes can be thought of as the controllers that tell dictate how cells within our body functions and disruptions to these instructions are highly undesirable. There are at least two significant forms of genetic instability that can be considered a possible problem with transgenic organism. A gene can either be unstable within the cell, changing its location within the genome of its host cell, or the instability can enable genetic material to, in turn, enter and alter the genes of another organism. Genetic stability is paramount to the safety of GM food, because the day to day operation of our cells is driven by gene expression and even a small change in the genetic sequence of a cell can have destructive consequences. Surprisingly, there have been documented cases of both mentioned forms of genetic instability.


A series of studies by French and Belgian laboratories that were presented at the Belgian Biosafety Advisory Council on 6 December 2002 and 17 February 2003 indicated that several transgenic lines of commercial feed, such as Bt11, Bt176, Mon 810 , and T25 maize, were genetically unstable and non-uniform. (The majority of the studies were no longer available online, but through the WebArchive.com I retrieved an original papers on Bt11.) The fact that these lines were unstable means that Monsanto was already in violation of European Union Laws, but the inserted gene sequences also had a tendency to bond with genetic material that is able to rearrange itself(transposons). As the genetic composition of a GMO changes, so can the potential harms, especially if this recombinant DNA can then further rearrange. How can a company claim their product is safe if the product has changed since its safety testing?

In a study published in Nature, scientists did what to my knowledge is the only human feeding study on the effects of genetically modified food. The study, title “Assessing the survival of transgenic plant DNA in the human gastrointestinal tract” was mainly oriented towards trying to determine how long GMO soy DNA maintained its integrity after being consumed by humans. However, before starting the study they made a very significant discovery. Of seven individuals on which they conducted ileostomies (a surgical cut used to collect material passing through the large intestine), three of them showed evidence of having gene-transfer from this GM soy in the bacteria within their large intestine. This means that the bacteria which aids in digestion had adopted the traits from the GMO food, and as cell division continues all your gut fauna could adopt the GMO traits. I find this last fact particularly troubling since there are strains of GMO foods like Bt corn where the modified genetic sequences are there specifically to have the GMO cells produce pesticide within itself, and if a study found similar results with Bt Corn our bodies would start creating a poorly understood pesticide that could cause massive disruptions to our digestion.

If this moved you take measures to raise awareness of GMOs and petition for change. Search GMO free shopping guides, buy organic or GMO Project verified, and push for mandatory labelling of GMOs if you live in the US. There are good reasons why the rest of the industrialized world has mandatory labelling.

It's not easy. Aside from my perennial laziness, there's not much money to be made here by writing. Yes, that's an issue with me. (Also, if you think guns are dangerous (and yes, they're supposed to be), then how does that sync with your perception of your country's armed forces?)

It's not about follow examples, it's about the practicality. It's not that easy.

Hmmm. No money is better than no money? Or just do it for a hobby then? If it's your passion, you gotta pursue it somehow~~~

Let's see. Maybe find a career solely for the sake of earning money? And at the side, write for fun or extra money?

But I'm lazy. As in, lazy as fuck. And my ideas are slipping away because I'm doing nothing.

Motivation~ Find a reason why ya like writing and keep it in your mind and heart~ It will help ya write more~

I'm lazy as fuck, too. But me, I keep writing coz I keep telling myself "I wanna share this with my friends". You know~ It's like baking a cake that you want to share and eat with your friends. Except that here, it's a piece of work, not cake.

That's one of the reasons. Another reason is a desire for personal achievement. Another is simply because I find writing fun.


Also, write those ideas on pieces of paper or in a notebook so you won't forget them.

I already have a reason, you know. I can't forget it, at the very first literary clinic that I've ever attended. I presented a simple and short poem I've wrote for criticism and watching these accomplished writers criticize my work or everyone's work and discuss in in detail, it gave me butterflies in my stomach and that was the most pleasant feeling I've ever had. That's the time I've said to myself that I wanted to write. That's why I write right now, even if I've run out of ideas or I am lazy. I simply can't find myself doing something for a living but to write, but I'm afraid to step on the ring because I'm lazy and I don't think I can handle the pressure. I can handle the pressure of my work being criticized but not to rush it because I don't want to half-ass it or have the result ugly. That's why I write.

As for me getting stuck into fanfiction right now, I didn't want to create a new universe until I can figure out the decent odds and ends of the trade. So I write fanfiction.

I see. I'm the same. I wanna write at my own pace, and not have those deadlines shiz going on.

But perhaps we can outsmart it a little. Write half or all of it. Then publish? As opposed to writing a little then being asked to write more. Thus deadlines.

Oh, I see. Okay~ If you have questions, maybe I can help~ ^w^

It's the partial translation of that one comic of Mako and Gamagoori getting married that I did on Danbooru, except it's been typesetted. I've even been credited! "Translators from Danbooru: pikuchan, NononJ, whitebase, dizzy c, Hillside Moose, oturib" (No, seriously, NononJ is my current Danbooru username, lol. I use it for translating primarily Kill la Kill images.) I did part or full translations for pages 2 to 5.

Also, from reading the hard translated version, I realized I forgot to put in a little "Shut up!" in there but oh well. O.o

This is a stupid little "achievement," but after all the stress over the past few days, it's a nice little thing. *shot*
