    i read most of that fine, had to re-read some to tell what the difficulty might have bn lol.

    is NUMBER a word in that context tho, would it not be 'more numb'


    and german is an easy language for us non-weegie type scottish to learn (alot of the words are very similar)

    You can't got any 'number' than numb - cos if your numb already how would you know you had become more numb??

    It s the same as worse and 'worser'
