    Le francais es si jolie!

    F*** I hate French too - that were some really traumatic years in school..
    Still can't believe I ever made it.

    You can speak Suaheli? Post something, I'd like to know how that sounds.

    Actually my language was quite ...rough so I wrote it in French (I think noone from France is around here) then I said to myself. No you can't write that. I changed my ...rough language into something neutral.

    God... if you listen to all the languages out there, they kind of match what type of civilization uses them. I mean, look at the germans with thier wonderful gutteral stuff! Their armies (when they were allowed to have them) were kickass death machines! The germans were the most violent during WW2. Now look at the fench, with thier pansy language (no offense). The most they ever did (war-wise)is take over THIER OWN PRISON. For god sakes. They get thier asses kicked all the time when in wars. Oh, yeah.... I HATE FRENCH!!!! ITS SOOOOO GAY!!!!

    Hope i didnt offend anyone, thats just my view on the topic

    You dork, the french and the english beat the crap out of each other for thousands of years.

    They also took over plenty of islands, vietnam, canada and parts of america back in the day.

    And that was a revolution when they took the bastille /infopop/emoticons\icon_wink.gif

    Well, maybe hundreds of years is more like it.

    Something I learned the other day:

    Indo-European
    |
    Germanic
    |
    West Germanic
    |
    Low German
    |
    Old English
    |
    Middle English
    |
    Modern English

    German and Yiddish both derive from High German as opposed to English, Frisian, Flemish, and PlattDeutsch deriving from Low German. Gothic derives from Eastern Germanic, and Swedish, Danish, Gothlandic, Norwegian, Icelandic, and Faroese derive from Northern Germanic, the first three, through Eastern Norse, and the latter three through Western Norse.

    That's alot of languages taking their main parts from German eh?
