    I also have a joke for you. I don't know what it's like in your neck of the woods, but here people have trouble pronouncing the English sound of "th", so I often tell students this joke when they forget to put their tongue in the right place.

    A prisoner who had just escaped from jail excitedly raised his arms
    and exclaimed, "I'm free!" A little boy who was nearby shrugged and replied, "So what? I'm four."
    Is there a story behind "gadget"? Are they tools for intercourse? I just make a wild guess here. Please don't laugh at my silly thoughts. 8)

    Sorry, blacknomi, I shouldn't have mixed the threads. I have confused you. But yes, they could be some kind of little, er... toys. :? :wink:

    gadg·et -n. A small specialized mechanical or electronic device; a contrivance. [Origin unknown.]

    Dear Ms.Smith,

    How could you answer my homework? I'm going to do some research of those words(apparatus/gadgat/device,etc.)later when I get some time. :mad:

    Blacknomi has always been a diligent and good student. :) :wink:

    Stuff is uncountable. Say many other things, a lot of other stuff, a lot of other junk, etc.

    You know more than I do about a lot of things. You have quite a vocabulary, I must say. May I ask how you learned English?
