    Brainstorming

    Fill in the blank. Put in any imaginative verbs you can think of.

    How do you _____ this sentence?

    Re: Brainstorming

    I guess this is a set of conversation only native speakers understand.

    I'd like it dichotomized.
    I'd like it lobotomized.
    I learned about lobotomy in high school. For those with severe epileptic seizure doctors disconnect certain part of brain (I think it was frontal lobe, correct me if I'm wrong) from the rest, leaving the patients vegitated. Stupid procedure no doctor performs (no doctors perform?) nowadays.

    Why Ewwwwww on 'I'd like it lobotomized?' does it imply more than what it literally says?

    What about 'I'd like it dichotomized?' what were you referring to?

    Re: Brainstorming

    Just a bit of sound play on my part, rather than a desire for Professor Egaz Moniz' surgical procedure.
