I haven't seen a single thing in your threads that indicate why a word turned backwards with some rather dubious stretches in logic to bring about
other words is somehow subliminal. From dictionary.com
Really? not one single thing in my threads has indicated why a word turned backwards with some "rather dubious stretches in logic" would somehow
subliminally influence a person's behavior?
"the dubious stretches in logic" usually include first breaking the word down and spelling it phonetically, like a child would spell it, applying
spelling that is consistant with how we were originally taught to spell, using the actual sounds that the letters make.
Then, in other cases it is merely referencing "Law of Association", how our minds work, connecting the new to the pre-existing truths that they are
Our subconscious mind can recognize patterns we consciously can not, or more to the point, usually do not.

According to a researcher (sic) at Cambridge University, it doesn't matter in what order the letters in a word are, the only important thing is that
the first and last letter be at the right place. The rest can be a total mess and you can still read it without problem. This is because the human
mind does not read every letter by itself but the word as a whole.
sub‧lim‧i‧nal existing or operating below the threshold of consciousness; being or employing stimuli insufficiently intense to produce a
discrete sensation but often being or designed to be intense enough to influence the mental processes or the behavior of the individual: a subliminal
stimulus; subliminal advertising.
i thank you.
Where is the influence in what you are talking about?
Curious. What practical purpose for women's heels on their shoes is there?
Does it help their posture?
No, in fact heels hurt their posture.
Is it more comfortable for their feet?
Go put a pare of pumps on and walk around in them for a day, and let me know how better your feet feel.
Does it help them move faster, more proficiently?
Again, go put a pair of high heeled shoes on and run for awhile.
What possible practicallity to high heels provide?
.... .. .. . . .
I've noticed a lot of guys calling eachother "Dogs" over the past decade, or longer.
If these guys are being called a "dog", and calling eachother "dogs", that is fine with me.
but if you want a "dog" to follow you, i believe the command is "heel".
Or perhaps you are a boob man?
Do you hold reverence for them?
Do you "praise" them?
flip the first letter around and it becomes ..... .
praise here .. .. .bra
perhaps just another ""the dubious stretches in logic"?
I concede, not all of my examples may be consistant with how everyone's brain functions at the cellular level. We do not all store the information
the same, and the cell in my mind that quantifies d for me may be adjacent to the cell that quantifies b for me, however your mind may indeed have
those brain cells located in areas that are not adjacent to eachother.
Just because some people don't know the origins of the word breakfast, doesn't mean their mental processes are being stimulated to eat. That is a
function of physiology. Same same for the gun - nudge stretch. This does not make me want to go and nudge someone with a gun. And I'd be very
surprised if it made someone else.
Out of hundreds of supplied instances you discredit the entire "theory" because 2 are easily dismissed in your mind?
You feel there is absolutley no supportive evidence throughout this entire thread that supports what i have presented here?
If that is the case, ok.
incidently, i like your solution to the "where is the other dollar" scenario. It was merely an exercise to show how things can be viewed at a
different angel which does not support any logical conslusion. It was meant to be a rhetorical exercise to stimulate thought and self evaluation.
Having said all that, your solution is well explained, and thoroughly thought out.
But, they did not pay 8.33333 for the room a piece. However, you did manage to explain where all the money is. KUDOS!
These posts relate to word games, nothing more.
You may be right, they may be all coincidental.
I fail to see the point of what you are trying to say.
i know, but i am trying to relay the information as best as i can. i will continue to do so. if the logic behind it all elludes you, or is just not
making enough sense to you, then disregard it, disregard my entire thread here.
my feeling will not be hurt, nor my pride. And, i fully understand your perspective, and hold no grudge.
You seem to have got a few WATS for your work, so you have obviously struck a chord with some people. But I really don't see how this relates to
I have to be honest with you. I have used my WATS many times, but i really do not know what the end result of recieving them is.
Do i get a prize if i get enough?
I'm not here for points, most people that are make it apparent with their posts.
I am just trying to give examples of how our subliminal minds influence the words we create, as well as how we percieve them. If you feel strongly
enough that this simply cannot be, i strongly urge you to think of me as just a kook.
No harm, and certainly no foul.
i whole heartedly thank you for your contributions.
