Lyndon Johnson is still not popular in Vietnam!

From the redoubtable Jason Brennan comes this amazing research paper on the structural grammatical differences between "close the door" and "f**k you".

While the whole piece is a tour-de-force, I recommend page 4 (which, de facto is page 2) in particular to your attention.

This article is definitely NSFW!

Sorry, it is working for me. It links to a pdf of the paper, not to a webpage.

South Hanoi Institute of Technology.

See the first note on page 14 (slash 16) for more details.
