"When you are keeping your head when all those around you are loosing
theirs, maybe you just don't know what's going on."

There is no beauty to mangling conversational English. If you want to
revel in the beauty of language, be very precise and use great
vocabulary. THAT will impress those around you...not by attacking it
with a butcher knife.
