I could see it wasn't in english!
Does it say anything about me that I noticed the cat (ok, cute, I admit!), then quickly focused my attention on the book? ;)

I just got an email titled, "Free Local Sluts." Half the letters were in Foreign, but I think I should open it anyway.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Seriously, are spammers just banking on the hope someone mis-clicks at this point? Also, this foreign thing is amazing. I'm just going to call every other language that now, like they're all just one 'not-English' language.

Which American is she talking about here the locals have a number of languages, Eskimo-Aleut I think is the group she needs to learn for Alaska. Spanish and French were of course the introduced languages before English. American is that like English but with less vowels?

I've always wanted maps in schools to use the name that each culture gives their own country.
Of course, I want all of these to use American letters.  ;D ;D ;D

Let's start by teaching people where Belgium is before teaching them how to write it in all our different languages.

Then again no. Let's start by teaching them it's a real place.  ;D
