Oh, I could bore you to tears, JKid,

My thesis is about the relationship between European Trade Policy and the history of the Barcode (the tags, I mean, not the hairstyle!) I don't have a title yet. (My advisor says the title is the last thing you should write.)

oh and "ga" and "ka"...I no longer consider them a language learning problem...more like a religious mystery...

European Trade Policy and the history of the Barcode


I just love hearing about what people are researching or want to research. I was thinking about this the other day in fact. Specifically, how something that is so interesting to someone else would not be something I would ever think about exploring in detail. That is what lead me to create the "dissertation" thread in the "Listener's Lounge" subforum.

Thanks for your reply. :)
