Planes and Migraines

The two most remarkable stories for me this week were that finally the UK government allowed the airplanes to create beautiful (although highly environmentally poisonous) jet lines in our skies again.
And secondly the story of this woman who after a migraine attack ended up speaking with a Chinese accent. And being English that must be not always a funny thing.

But I found this very interesting. The migraine cause a blood vessel in her brain to burst. Which shut down certain areas in her speech nerve system. Incredible what our brains are capable of!
Doctors are fascinated about this rare phenomenon. But she is getting frustrated, because even taking intense vocal training won't help her speaking normal again.
