This tale makes the timeless point that if you don’t use it, you lose it. Literally.
A Chinese murder suspect has been apprehended after evading police for 12 years partly by pretending to be mute – leading to the genuine loss of his ability to speak . The man, identified by his surname Zeng, has been charged with murdering his wife’s uncle, identified as Mr Chai,in 2005, after a dispute over a 500 yuan (£57) rent payment. The disagreement escalated, and Mr Zeng allegedly stabbed Mr Chai to death.
Let the reader understand… if you don’t use what you’re given, you soon have nothing to use at all.
