    Well, I could speak French or Spanish to you, maybe even a little Latin or Japanese, but I have a feeling the English would probably be easier all around. :P

    Je parle une petite peux Francais, ne hablo Español... Latin would be fun D: ololodeadlanguage. I can't make sentences in Japanese, but I can say hi/bye yes/no etc. :(

    Ich spreche ein bietchen Deutsch, es ist gleich Niederlandisch. I can only say "yes" in Polish, because that's the only Polish they've ever said to me. I know some Czech, it's on the same level as Japanese.

    But yeah, English is much better.

    That's only 'cause Polish girls put out for everybody. Nothing to get a big head about. :P

    Damn it Jeff, I actually wrote a post for that graphic novel thread.

    Whatever. I'll dump it here.

    I don't really know, but I wish they would make public policy books as graphic novels. A lot of abstract ideas could be summed up more succictly with a picture than a two page description. Henry Kissenger's books would be awesome as graphic novels.

    Not to mention that someone like Thomas Freidman who insists on making every single fucking point with a story anyway could condense his books from 400 pages to 50.

    God, no fucking kidding. I swear, the man gets paid by the anecdote.

    I just want to shake him and yell "Just tell me the information" in his smug, mustachioed face.

    Dear Old People,

    Prices are not as cheap as they were 40 years ago. This is because of inflation. Get over it.

    I think my years of classroom training in French prepared me much more for speaking and understanding spoken French.

    Before going to Germany, all I really did was some internet reading on common words and grammar, and one of those learn-a-language audio CDs.

    Classroom learning makes such a huge difference.

    I had a year of French where I'd really paid attention before I went there for a month, and I kicked ass at it.

    Dammit.

    I got home from school at 3:00-ish, EST.
    Since then, I've had two pieces of pizza, because I have to work from 4-9 tonight.
    I was hoping to at least have a little downtime before I had to leave.

    Certainly not in the tourist areas, though.

    Speaking from personal experience, an American will have a much easier time at a McDonalds in Amsterdam then in Munich or Vienna.
