I just smoked a zoot and the first thing i read is this. I hate you its going to bug me all night now
Im guessing its one of those questions that doesnt really have an answer isnt it?
what ?? english ... if they are doing english sign langauge .. obviously the voice wont sound to great.. when i talk in my head it just words, not really a sound yano ... or am i missing the point
'S'mofo butter layin' me to da' BONE! Jackin' me up... tight me!
I think the point is what language will the person think in if they have never heard any language in there life, theres million's of languages to express how you feel etc. i may be missing the point tho i dont really know.
well, in english .. if they doing english sign language, and saying something in english with there hands.. but i dont think we mean language... surely you mean the sound of the voice in the head...
funny if they pictured little sign language hands in there heads.. little borrower in your head having a rave.. give him so glow sticks.. ava chat in ya barnet for real
I think we are on the same wave length i was thinking as language as the sound of the voice in the head. The idea of a borrower having a rave in your head is a pretty assuming thought tho .
i have often thought this believe it or not. they must just think in pictures..? another one is if you were born blind, what do you see in your dreams? or if you were born blind AND deaf what do you dream of at all?? some freaky shit
They speak in electric, waves, pulses, like dolphins. Deaf people have the same molecular structure as sea faring mammals.
Egggggg fucking xactly
You can't expect a retard like me to come up with original content can you? Least it's not from fucking /b/
*Edit* Yes I know that's where the meme started, but that's not where I grabbed the quote from
the mind boggles!
go on a "i am deaf forum" and ask them
What would happen if you put Stephen Hawkins in a spaceship controlled by 1,000 hamsters in wheels, with orders to return in 2 years?
Surely Sign language is universal though?
It's just actions.
It doesn't matter if you are born, deaf, blind, dumb or normal, you don't think in any language because you have no concept of language.
But without hearing language, what language would you think in?
i think german or french
I'm thinking a lost dialect from thousands of years ago. The 1st guy that went deaf that all deaf people now share the genes of, possibly a series of grunts and urghs.
im pretty sure they think in morse code and derps
