The rampant desire to eat sweets, caused to my body irreparable damage : gaining weight, loosing my beautiful teeth, hardening arteries, diabetes, and early senility . Is it inherited certainly not. I could only blame, the rampant desire of the food producing conglomerate for profit and Education system has kept me in the dark.

This programme reminded me that russia sighned a nonagression pact and attacked us despite of that.

When I heard the word "pact" without context I thought she'd picked up "packed", even though I knew both of those words.
