What's an affective charge?

13 May, 2021

If improves your mood?

I think they're a French company - it does seem that there are enough "false friends" between French and English to make translation fraught - not in that you get things totally wrong, but you get very weirdly worded stuff that almost makes sense but doesn't really. They "give life to objects" after all! :)

Fine looking tents, but ooh la la! Not cheap.

No idea, sounds like whatever it is i think it's related to strong emotional, high performance object.
