Talk to the hand, cause the face – it ain’t listenin’. Now that is a pretty bad ass way of trying to look and sound cool in one’s juvenile years, although a slight variation of the above would see the replacement of the word ‘hand’ with ‘nose’. Why so, you ask? Well, NOSE is an invention by a 16-year old which is able to translate outgoing breathes into Morse code […]
