31 Days of Learning English – DAY 17 – improve your English – EXTREMES / HYPERBOLE – 17th October


we are on baby oh what a lovely day it is today
it really does feel quite nice in fact welcome today 17 of 31 days of October
in 2019 yes it’s time to improve your English hmm
are you going to ‘stan’ mr. Duncan? apparently this is the trendiest
word at the moment if you ‘stan’ someone it means you are a loyal fan of someone
so apparently all the young people on the internet nowadays say ‘stan’ and that
means they are a steady fan or they support a certain person so please stan
mr. Duncan I want to turn this into a hashtag I want to see this trending all
over the Internet by the end of today okay stan mr. Duncan
that’s me by the way hi everybody this is mr. Duncan in England how are you today? are you okay? I hope so are you happy? I
hope so here we go then what day is it today
what day is it it’s Thursday thank you bbbbb out the way go on move
out the way hello everybody it’s nice to see you it’s Thursday and can I just say
the weather is absolutely glorious today I suppose I should have gone outside
however it would have taken too much time to arrange and sometimes I am a
very busy man so let’s have a look outside oh my goodness look at that so
that is a live view out of the window right now and as you can see it is
looking very nice the Sun is out and already you can see many of the leaves
on the trees have started to turn we are now into autumn and there is an actual
view right now so that isn’t recorded that is the actual view out of the
window right now looking across the beautiful landscape in the area in which
I live I am in England for those wondering yes I am actually in England
there is another live view oh isn’t it nice a little bit of cloud in the sky
now during the night I actually woke up I felt very Restless last night I don’t
know why please don’t ask me why I felt Restless but I did so I got up I got out
of bed and I wondered around the house and I looked out the window in the moon
was out twinkling in the sky and there were lots of stars as well in the sky
because there was very little cloud last night which might explain the reason why
it was so cold so as I was walking around the house at around about 4
o’clock this morning I realized that the temperature at night has really dropped
so I think last night it was around 3 degrees which is quite cold
for nighttime because normally at night you have no heating in the house so
everything was very chilly so I stayed up for a while however I did come up
with some very good ideas for today’s livestream so as I was sitting in a semi
sleepy states I wrote some ideas for today’s livestream for example today we
will be talking about this word hyperbole a great word it is a word that
describes the behavior of many people nowadays so when we look at this word
hyperbole what does it mean to you so that is one of the words we’ll be
looking at today also I have received a question which I am more than willing to
answer mr. Duncan can you tell us what this phrase means the phrase is miss the
boat what does it mean if you miss the boat well this is a very interesting
phrase the meaning of this phrase is to miss an opportunity or perhaps your
chance to do something has passed unfortunately you have missed your
opportunity you have missed your chance to do something sadly you have missed
the boat or we might say that someone has missed the boat so if you miss the
boat it means you have lost your opportunity your chance has sailed away
just like Titanic I do do do do do do do do do do do do do do I’ll never let you go I’ll never let you
go oops I’ve let you go bye-bye hello to the live chat Oh a lot of
people on the live chat I always get very excited when there are lots of
people on the live chat we had grace Julie and Cho all of you appeared at the
same time so can I say hello to all three of you and congratulations for
being first on today’s live chat you see all the emotions all of the
emotions that were going across my face during those applause I was really
excited so this is a word we’re going to look at today
hyperbole also we are going to look at types of words that show the most and
the least of something extremes is the word so today we will look at extremes
so things that are the most and the least so when we talk about extremes we
are talking about the furthest you can go or maybe you go further than you
should perhaps you go less or you do less than you should or the very least
so when we talk about extremes we are talking about the most and the least and
there are many words that describe various types of things and we can use
extremes to describe them so that is something we are going to look at today
and that is the idea that I came up with at four o’clock this morning when I was
staggering around the house in a semi-sleep in fact I think I was
sleepwalking so this might be the first ever lesson that I’ve actually created
in my sleep whilst sleepwalking can you believe it
so that coming up later here’s an interesting question this is something I
thought of last night as well you never see blue food how come
why don’t you ever see blue food have you ever wondered why you never see blue
food it’s a very interesting question I might answer that later on why do you
never see blue food of course lots of things to look at out of the window at
this time of year Oh shall we have a look at something nice so first of all
here are some of the flowers that are still growing in my garden you can see
some lovely fuchsias so that particular flower is called a fuchsia very nice
also the sheep are still at the back of the house and there so that is something
that I filmed around about 10 minutes before starting today’s livestream so
you can see the sheep are still at the back of the house they look very
comfortable now even though one or two of them have
injured themselves it looks as if they’ve fallen over some of the sheep
are having difficulty walking but you can see the sheep look very comfortable
very confident and even though I was standing very close to them at the back
of my garden they they really didn’t care they took no notice of me and oh
hello you can see my socks that I’m wearing today I was in the garden a few
minutes before starting today’s livestream and you can see I have my
colorful socks but something even more colorful of
course are the autumn leaves you can see already on the grass there are many
leaves that have fallen from the trees lots of different shades of yellow brown
red one or two gold leaves as well so you can see at the moment everything is
looking rather nice outside at the moment isn’t it nice it really is it
definitely feels as if autumn has arrived it really does so why don’t you
ever see blue food have you noticed that when you go into a shop to buy some food
you never see blue food apparently blue is one of the most enticing colors so
that is the reason why you never see blue food even certain cheese that has a
little bit of blue can be quite off-putting and the reason why people
don’t like to eat blue food is because it all goes back to our early ancestors
so if something was blue quite often it meant that it was inedible something
that had gone rotten or maybe something that is poisonous so the reason why you
never see blue food is because most people find it repulsive to look at and
they certainly don’t want to put it in their mouths so that is the reason why
you never see blue food blue food is something that is an appetizing so that
is why you often see food that is golden or colorful or of course green so we
often see green food as being fresh and lovely and when we think of blue food we
think of something that has gone rotten or something that
spoiled so that’s the reason why did you know that probably I think so because
you are also smart well you must be because you’re joining me today on the
live chat yes it is 31 days of October and I am here with you every day during
October the month of October 2019 Monday to Friday 2 p.m. Saturday 12 p.m. just
after midday sunday 2 p.m. UK time of course soon there are going to be some
changes with the time so my times will change well they won’t change at all
however the clocks towards the end of October will actually go back is it back
is it fall is it fall into water spring into summer spring forward and fall back
yes so we go back one hour in a few weeks
is it a few weeks or a few days oh no I think it’s I think it’s is it next week
or the week after so I think it’s two weeks from now the clocks here in the UK
will change and also many countries will also change their times and that’s when
it gets very confusing so as we officially say goodbye to British Summer
Time what a shame what a pity hello to the live chatters lots of people want to
say hello hello to Anna hello Anna Anna likes the Sheep as you know I love
looking at the countryside and also the nature Green is a lovely color also if
you see something that is green you will assume that you can eat it however blue
things if you see something blue you don’t want
to eat it isn’t it strange Anna asks a very interesting question
when you are in your garden can you smell the odor from the Sheep do the
sheep smell now it is true that the sheep will do their wee wees and poo
poos at the back of my house on the field that is behind my garden however
it is very strange that you can never smell the animals so whatever animals
are at the back of the house you can never smell them isn’t that strange now
you would think that we would be able to smell their poop but you can’t it’s very
strange maybe I have become accustomed to the
smell perhaps maybe maybe not I don’t know really Shahryar says here in sweden
it is very gloomy oh well I will try to send you some of our beautiful sunshine
because here it is absolutely marvelous Patrick says maybe because when
something is dead it will turn blue yes if something goes rotten or if something
goes bad quite often it will turn blue as as the thing becomes moldy so lots of
bacteria will grow on the fruit and quite often it will turn blue and that’s
the reason why we always avoid food that is blue in color
you never see blue food in fact the only food I can think of that’s blue is
certain cheese so certain types of cheese can have blue in them but it is
true we never eat blue food Christina says mr. Duncan did you have an
inspirational moment during the night yes I did I don’t know what happened but
I was wandering around the house in the dark and then suddenly my mind
I started to wonder so I was moving around I was wandering around the house
and also I was wandering in my mind and I came up with some really good
ideas today so today we are talking about extremes how to express extremes
in English hyperbole is a word that many people are using at the moment and the
reason is because we seem to live in an age where people are overstating things
or exaggerating or maybe they say something that is overblown so maybe a
small subject or a small thing is made to seem more serious so hyperbole is
something that is used a lot people seem to enjoy exaggerating or making things
seem worse than they are something that is overblown or exaggerated or a
statement that is too forceful so maybe something that is normal or something
you should treat as being casual is made to seem much more serious than it is so
hyperbole is often used in politics I have been told that I am NOT allowed to
say to say this word so today apparently I am banned I have been censored from
saying this so I am not allowed to say this today but there is a lot of news
taking place here in the UK about this and apparently Europe has said yes
unfortunately the Democratic Union Party the unionists have said no don’t worry I
will not mean this word I promise it’s gone it’s gone
apparently one or two people seem to think that I have become a cult at least
I think that’s what they said apparently one or two people have said mr. Duncan
do you realize that you have a cult following what does this mean what does
it mean if you have a cult following well if you have a cult following it
means that people like watching you and maybe in some cases they want to be with
you all the time so maybe they want to watch your lessons all the time however
it doesn’t necessarily mean that you have a large audience so maybe maybe
this is correct so maybe my audience is a small group
but they are very keen they are very interested in what I do so apparently
some people think that I I have a cult following I’m not sure about that I’m
really not sure about that oh hello – salad
hello salad have you had fresh camel milk I can safely say that I’ve never
eaten or drunk camel milk no never I’ve never tried that ever in my life hello –
Maria yes apparently it is the 26th of October so on day 26 of my 31 days of
English the clocks will go back one hour and that of course will cause lots of
confusion for many people and of course it makes some people late for my lessons
however I will not be changing the times so the times for
my lessons will be the same for the schedule however your clocks might
actually be different because we will be putting our clocks back here in the UK
by one hour on the 26th of October hello vinamra
thank you very much all the efforts and hard work you invested to bring out the
best in us can never be repaid in mere words well that’s very kind of you to
say we can only feel grateful for having a teacher like you good evening from
India hello to you as well did you see my live lesson yesterday I was in the
kitchen and I was talking about Indian food so one of the things I mentioned
was Indian food because I liked it very much
Giovani likes my t-shirt this is rather nice isn’t it in fact I bought this from
mr. Steve’s colleague so one of mr. Steve’s colleagues was selling some
t-shirts that he had bought from someone else I hope they weren’t stolen I hope
I’m not wearing something that’s been stolen I really do
anyway to cut a long story short this is a t-shirt that I bought from one of mr.
Steve’s colleagues so now you know it was very cheap as well hello – sorry cat
hello winter is coming it certainly is it definitely felt like
summer last night it definitely did politicians talk with hyperbole nowadays
says Anna yes everything is always exaggerated
everything is always overstated so if you overstate something if you
exaggerate if you are trying to make a point and maybe you are trying to scare
people or to make people more worried than they need to be
quite often people will use hyperbole especially in politics if we leave
Europe everything will be a disaster if we stay in Europe everything will be a
disaster so sometimes on both sides of the argument you might find there is a
lot of hyperbole a lot of exaggeration a lot of overstating of things to get
people worried or upset I think so hyperbole something you will see quite
often hello Tamiko thank you once again for your lovely photographs of your trip
that you had in Japan you can eat shaved ice cream with blue colored syrup
apparently this particular syrup is called blue Hawaii yes
that is very interesting now I remember when I was little and we used to be able
to get something called an ice lolly so it was like a lollipop but it was made
of ice and I remember there was one particular type of ice lollipop that was
blue and when you ate it it would make your mouth in your tongue turn blue and
sometimes around the edge of your mouth would also turn blue so yes sometimes
you might see things that are colored blue especially dessert or ice cream but
generally in life you won’t see blue food very strange Luis makes a very interesting point
people think that pigs are the dirtiest animals but it is not true sheep are
much dirtier yes a lot of people think that pigs are actually quite dirty but
in fact I think well I’ve never seen a dirty pig I’ll be honest with you
although sometimes they do like roll around in their own muck something
I don’t recommend hello also to Patrick again yes this
t-shirt was not secondhand so it wasn’t owned by another person so they were new
but they were being sold off very cheaply by a shop so one of Steve’s
friends actually bought a lot of them and sold them but this wasn’t very
expensive it was very cheap I never buy new clothing as you know I never buy new
clothes unless I have to even my socks many of my socks now have
holes in them unfortunately but I never change my clothing as if I unless I have
to so as soon as my clothing starts to
dissolve on my body I will normally I will normally buy a new thing
maybe underwear or socks but nothing else so I don’t really spend much money
on clothing to be honest it is now 231 it is just after half past two here in
the UK we are going to have a look at an excerpt from one of my lessons because
yesterday I was asked if I could give some advice about giving a speech so if
you are about to give a speech or make a speech in front of a group of people
here is some very useful advice from one of my very old lessons going back 11
years is mr. Duncan this is on ladies and gentlemen
horrible judges I mean honorable judges the title of my
speech is I’m sorry I’m very nervous I’m sorry I can’t do this hi everybody this is mr. Duncan in
England how are you today are you okay I hope so are you happy I
hope so in this lesson we will examine the skin
healing process of preparing and giving a public speech apparently the two
things that people are most afraid of are death and public speaking sadly
there is not much we can do about the first one however there are ways to
improve your confidence when it comes to making a speech to a crowd of people the
first thing you need to learn and improve is your confidence speaking in
front of people can be very scary so first of all you need to get used to the
idea of doing it especially if it’s your first time who’s the fairest of them all not you
it’s not very nice it may seem like a strange thing to do
but practicing in front of a mirror is a great way to build some of that initial
confidence get used to your own mannerisms and ways of showing what you
are saying facial expressions and body language are just as important as
the words you are saying if you happen to have one of these wonderful devices
then you are well on your way to improving your vocal technique using a
tape recorder can help you to get accustomed or used to the sound of your
own voice it may feel a little strange hearing yourself at first but after a
while you will begin to enjoy it and your confidence will slowly build isn’t
that right yes mr. Duncan I suggest you start off with some simple words and
sentences and as you listen to the sound of your own voice you will be able to
hear where there may be some problems one common problem which arises is the
speed of speaking there is no need to rush what you are saying give the
audience a chance to hear your words of course you must also speak clearly so
don’t rush it and don’t mumble once you are confident enough then you can move
on to speaking in front of a small audience get a few of your friends
together or members of your family or even your classmates to listen this will
allow you to get used to speaking in front of a crowd once you have built up
your confidence and you feel ready to face the audience you must then prepare
your main speech it is good if you can talk about something you are interested
in if the topic is free and open then you can talk about your hobbies or your
favorite story or share an experience from your life wow that judges will love
this write the speech down clearly on paper or type it out using a computer
and slowly learn it paragraph by paragraph do not try to learn it all at
once if you feel tired then take a rest finally here are some useful tips I
would like to share with you when speaking to a crowd try to use your body
as a way of making the speech more vivid and clear hand gestures are very useful
and remember to always keep your eyes on the audience if you forget a part of the
speech do not panic just carry on from the part you remember it’s so hot in
here I hope this advice has been useful
speaking in public is not easy but with regular practice and steady
confidence-building you will be alright I should know I follow this advice
myself Wow look at that going way back in time
to 2008 I can’t believe it I feel so old now that was a lesson from 11 years ago
can you believe it and that is the reason why I look so young in that video
now of course I look old and gray it’s not fair
now yesterday I was showing you some food in the kitchen and I don’t want you
to think that I have an unhealthy lifestyle now I’m going to prove now
that not all of the food I eat is unhealthy quite often I eat healthy food
as well so for example can you see there there are some some lovely lentils so
lentils are something that I eat a lot of so quite often I will have lentils
when I’m eating curry or maybe in soup so there are many ways to eat this
particular thing so yes I like eating lentils
I eat lentils a lot so not all of my diet is unhealthy
it would appear if you were watching yesterday it would appear that I’m
always eating junk food it isn’t true even though last night we had pizza and
I think I put too much garlic on the pizza and that’s the reason why I was
awake early this morning walking around the house like a zombie because I
couldn’t get to sleep I think I put too much garlic in my curry sorry in my
pizza we’re having curry tomorrow night Mangala says I watched that lesson that
you just showed two years ago oh my goodness even two years is a long time
so imagine going back in time 11 years or even 13 years can you believe it so
I’ve been making these you to blessin’s now for almost 13 years at
the end of this month I will be celebrating my 13th anniversary on
YouTube Maria you know mr. Duncan we have a food stall or we have a food like
the samosa that I showed yesterday I will send you the recipe next time if
you want to try to cook it at home I know that you are a good cook well mr.
Steve is a good cook I’m not sure about me apparently mr. Duncan your your voice
has changed over the years well I suppose the reason why my voice sounds
different on my old videos is because way back in 2008 I didn’t have
professional equipment so the the equipment that I used in 2008 was very
basic so I didn’t have a professional microphone I didn’t have anything that
was professional I just used the camera and that was it
so that’s all I used so it was very basic equipment that I used when I first
started my my English lessons all those years ago wow it’s incredible today we
are talking about extremes where we talk about extremes we talk about the most
that something can go to and of course the least that something can go to so we
are talking high and low but we are actually talking about the highest point
and the lowest point so we are going to talk about ways of using extremes in
English and I will take you through some words right now
also what I will do I will also have a look at the live chat now and again so
don’t worry I I am NOT ignoring you I am doing a lot today in fact I will try to
fit in as much as I can in the next 20 minutes so we are talking about
extremes now here is a good example of extremes we have biggest and smallest so
this often is used when we are talking about size so when we describe size the
the most extreme is biggest and also smallest so when we go to the very large
thing it is the biggest when we go to the very small thing it is the smallest
so these are good examples of extremes from the biggest to the smallest so
there is a good way of looking at one particular type of extreme another one
now largest and tiniest now I suppose in this sense you can also use smallest as
well so you can actually say largest and smallest but also you can say largest
and tiniest so the largest thing is the one that is the biggest the tiniest is
the smallest excuse me while I have a little drink of water hmm this water is
the wettest this is the wettest and if you go into the desert you will say that
that is the driest they are two extremes another one now tallest and shortest so
when we talk about the tallest we are talking about height so the tallest
thing and the shortest thing so maybe we are talking about a building
the tallest building in the in the world the shortest person in the world tall
short tallest shortest again they are extremes here’s a good one
happiest and saddest happiest and saddest so when we talk about the
happiest it is the thing that gave you the most joy or maybe the feeling that
you have that can’t be surpassed you are the happiest you have ever been or maybe
if something bad has happened maybe you are the saddest you’ve ever been so you
can have for example you can have the happiest day of your life this has been
the happiest day of my life perhaps it was the day of your wedding or maybe you
had a special birthday celebration this was the happiest day of my life
however if something bad happens something that makes you feel unhappy an
event that is not nice maybe the worst thing that has ever happened you can say
it was the saddest day when my dog died it was the saddest day of my life it was
the saddest that I’ve ever felt happiest saddest
they are both extremes Erik says Russia is the largest country in the world and
the smallest country does anyone know I’m not sure what the smallest country
in the world is I want to say I want to say
a country in Africa maybe I’m probably wrong I’m sure someone will know but off
the top of my head I don’t know the answer for that question so what is the
smallest country in the world the smallest country the brightest and the
dullest so when we talk about the brightest it is the one that is the
clearest or the most obvious something that can easily be seen the brightest
colors the brightest light and then of course we have dullest so the opposite
of bright is dull bright dull we could also use the word dim as well so dim can
also be the opposite of bright so the brightest or the dullest
the brightest color the dullest color so the brightest color is yellow the
dullest color is black or maybe grey so there you can see two extremes also it’s
probably worth mentioning that brightest can also mean a person who is the most
clever so if a person is very intelligent or clever we might say they
are the brightest he is the brightest student in the class so bright and dull
something that’s interesting might be bright
so the brightest thing that you saw today something that made you feel
cheerful or happy and then we have the dullest the thing that wasn’t
interesting or the thing that was boring oh here’s one here’s one that I really
do know about the fattest and the thinnest fattest
thinnest these are both extremes so when we talk about the fattest we are talking
about the person who has the most weight they are very heavy they have a lot of
fat on their body they are the fattest maybe the fattest man in the world
or of course the opposite is thinnest so maybe the thinnest person in the world
or maybe the thinnest person in the classroom so the fattest thinnest and I
know that some people will not like the use of the word fact however it is still
a word that’s used even though sometimes it is used unkindly so the fattest and
the thinnest these are both extremes fattest thinnest oh here’s another one
here’s another one by the way I met the smallest man in the world when he was
still alive did you know that I actually met the smallest man in the world he was
actually living near to where I lived in China and I actually saw him one day it
was quite a thrill sadly he’s no longer with us here is warned that I really do
understand very well can you guess which one I am am i this one or am i this one
am i number one or am i number two which one is mr. Duncan
attitude 210 did it I might be the poorest person on YouTube maybe I am
definitely not the richest person on YouTube so the poorest has the least
money the richest has the most so the poorest person is
the one who has no money and if we are talking about a group of people we might
decide to compare between each person so maybe the poorest person has the least
money the richest person has the most money here is another one Oh
most people say number two trust me I’m I’m not this I am definitely not
this a lot of people think I’m rich but I’m not trust me if I was rich
why would I buy a t-shirt for five pounds of someone who Steve knows I mean
would I do that if I was rich definitely not oh oh this is a good one
which one is mr. Duncan oh this this could be a new game by the way I think
this might be a new game so which one is mr. Duncan is it one or two the
cleverest are you sure the stupidest oh thank you very much that’s very kind of
you to say so just to explain the cleverest is the person who might be the
most intelligent or appears to be the most intelligent and the stupidest is
the person who seems to have no knowledge whatsoever the cleverest
person in the class and the stupidest person in the class even though that is
not a very kind thing to say about someone it really isn’t Pedro says number two Thank You Pedro
for your support I do appreciate it another one now
o the highest the lowest high so the highest is the point that cannot be
exceeded it is the highest point there is nothing higher than the highest and
then the lowest is the one that can’t be exceeded going down so the highest voice
the lowest voice so we can use this in many ways so the highest can mean maybe
something that is above you and the lowest is something that might be below
you so the highest mountain all the lowest Valley the highest mountain the
lowest Valley so there are many ways of using this also if you are paying money
for something the highest price the lowest price so I paid the lowest price
for this t-shirt it only cost me five quid highest lowest maybe if we are
talking about the score in an exam so maybe the person who came top in the
class got the highest score and the person who did the worst got the lowest
score highest lowest another example of extremes now when we are talking about extremes
generally we will use best and worst so that was the best day I’ve ever had mr.
Duncan this was the best lesson you’ve ever made and then the worst is the
thing that was terrible something that has never been so bad it’s the worst it
is the worst thing I have ever seen mr. Duncan today’s lesson was the worst
lesson I’ve ever seen or maybe you say it is the best lesson that you’ve ever
seen so you can have the worst oh dear the best so generally speaking we can
say that was the best meal I’ve ever eaten that was the worst meal I’ve ever
eaten that is the best song I’ve ever heard that is the worst song I’ve ever
heard in my life another way of expressing extremes is of course most
and least so the most and the least so when we say you give me the most joy
I’ve ever felt or something gives you the least joy that you’ve ever felt so
we are talking once again about extremes the most is quite often good the least
is quite often bad however it also depends on the thing you are expressing
so maybe you are expressing something negative but you don’t have much of it
so maybe the least sad so this is the least sad that I’ve ever felt
so because the word is negative we can still say the least so basically you are
saying that you are happy so I hope that helps you we’ve talked about quite a few
things today and we have been talking about things called extremes so from the
worst to the best the extremes the extreme cold it is the coldest it is the
hottest the hottest day the coldest day I have a feeling that we are going to
have one of the coldest days this winter apparently apparently it’s going to be
very cold during the next few weeks here in the UK thank you very much for your
company today it’s gone very quickly it always goes fast I don’t know how I
don’t know why but it always goes very quickly what is the difference between
the least and the lowest well they basically mean the same thing the least
is often used in quantity the lowest is often used in position so when we talk
about the lowest it is often position when we talk about the least the least
we are expressing quantity so I hope that helps Mika says you are the best
English teacher thank you very much don’t forget if you
want to if you want to stand me they can’t find it there where’s it gone
there I can’t find my Stan where is my Stan there we go if you want to Stan mr.
Duncan apparently this is the word that all the teenagers are using now
apparently it is very trendy so please can you stand mr. Duncan can you stand
by me and be a very loyal fan I would appreciate it also if you want to make a
donation you can also make a donation to Pay Pal
and there is the address right now don’t forget everything I do I do for free it
costs you nothing not a single penny thank you very much to ty thank you very
much to pat you Louie Oh apparently the smallest city the smallest country sorry
country is Vatican the Vatican so yes I suppose Vatican City is actually blessed
as a separate place so yes maybe that is right in fact that does sound right say
I thought I thought it was somewhere in Africa because there are lots of small
countries in Africa Thank You Louie Louie for that answer to the question
that I asked earlier can you say the most stupid yes you can so you can say
that that is the most stupid thing I’ve ever heard the most stupid thing I’ve
ever heard although to be honest with you it would be more normal and more
acceptable to say that is the stupidest thing the stupidest thing so the
