    To gain respects from others is not an easy task especially in this region where we live. Education makes this task easy because it develops such qualities in you which are admired by everyone.

Hi Brainiacs.

I loved the Colour episode. I love all of your episodes. I know you were planning on presenting a quiz on Colour-blindness. As a colour blind fella, I'd be interested to hear about your research on the subject if the opportunity presents itself.

Keep up the good work guys and gals.

Virginia, I hate to be a nitpicker, but I think it's "an exaltation of larks," and "a clowder of cats." Also you left out my very favorite, a murder of crows :{
