The only people that truly speak English, are from England. Like what I is.

From Wikipedia says:
Spelt (Triticum spelta; Triticum dicoccum), also known as dinkel wheat or hulled wheat, is a species of wheat cultivated since approximately 5000 BC.
It is one of the grains (along with kamut, brown rice, oats, millet) that I mill in my kitchen for flour when I want to bake something delicious. :mrgreen:

Here could be one example of why people give up, and I think it's already been touched upon, is that while we're having this intelligent banter, we are no longer talking about the threads topic any more.

My own experience of peoples behaviour and reactions, is they cannot seem to follow simple instructions. Selective reading (if that's such a thing)? Boredom? Frustration at their own inability? Unable to articulate (that's one I can struggle with)?
One thing they probably share in common, is that they came here knowing they're onto a good thing, not realising they have to learn something. They want you to tell them what to do, so they don't have to learn anything, but have no idea of what to ask because they haven't though about what question to ask. Which probably takes us back to some inability on their part.

Nice one. You were wrong so change the subject instead of learning from it. :mrgreen:

The thread's initial topic ran its course 3 months ago.

It's a sign of the times and it looks like it's all downhill from here.

Perhaps you missed this thread. Moglen's stunning assessment of what's happening to human cognitive ability is evident everywhere you look. tl;dr has become the norm. Or variants: tl;dl (too long;didnt listen) or tl;dt (too long; didn't think).

I thought this thread was resurrected as an homage to Garry who is so missed around here and content was irrelevant.
