Hate, although q rather strong word so I think "more than mildly dislike" would be more apt, since I at least mildly dislike people from all walks of life, 'I'm not [insert discrimination of choice here], I hate everybody!'

I see, I see. Equal discrimination for all I say.

Is it discrimination at all if, at least formally, everybody is disliked roughly the same? I would say that any mid variations that come up would be insufficient to do classified as discrimination and would often just come down to a personal dislike

Слава революции! It won't let me embed the video, but this chorus is nice in a death-to-the-tsar kind of way.

Why not?! It's one the key languages you need to learn to succeed in business, Arabic, Mandarin and Russian.

Arabic + Russian = Middle Eastern jobs.
English + Mandarin = Asian jobs.
French + German = Western European jobs.
German + Russian = Eastern European jobs.
Portuguese + Spanish = South American jobs.
English = Rest of the world.

Well you can't write English... Speak :lol:

Why would we want that? That takes away from cultures that have hundreds and thousands of years behind them. I'd rather learn another country's language so I can also experience their culture which a pan-world language which deprive me of.

Never said I could

It's more like having a de jure global language and de facto regional dialects. I see the cultural argument but it'd be easier is we could all understand each other, especially in an emergency.

Wow - you've already failed life lesson number 1: It is never too early for alcohol.

Funniest thing this morning is when I went into class at 9.40 and someone asked what we wanted to do, so I said, let's go to the pub - all my friends thought that I was joking until my teacher got up and started to put his jacket on - I had to remind him that the pub wasn't open at this time, and he was very disappointed!

In an emergency most people know what to say or understand a bit of English if needs must.

English - Emergency, Police, Ambulance and Fire Brigade.
French - Urgence, Police*, Ambulance and Sapeurs-pompiers.
German - Notfall, Polizei, Krankenwagen and Feuerwehr.
Russian - Чрезвычайных, Полиция, Скорая помощь and Пожарная бригада.

It's not hard to learn a couple of basic phrases before you go on holiday.

*Police is easiest to use, there are different branches so just say POLICE!!! SOS!!! ****!!!!
