Here's one in English...

Try punctuating:

"John whilst Adam had had 'had had', had 'had'. 'Had' had had the teacher's approval."

...or punctuate, "Woman without her man is nothing"

Woman, without her man, is nothing.

Or my preferred version... Woman! Without her, man is nothing.

John, whilst Adam had 'had', had 'had had', 'had had' 'had had' the teacher's approval!

how do you get russian characters in posts?
It's a good language...for the most part, it makes sense.

You can get online Cyrillic keyboards.

yeah i found that when i was learning. apart from the whole alphabet thing, the grammar made a lot of sense.

a somewhat random comment:
our russian teacher told us that apparantly, a popular russian girl's name, under Stalin, was Tractorina ( tractor being the same word in russian). naming your daughter that was a good way of demonstrating your belief in communism!

I hated those diacritical hat accent thingies! They're just unnecessary.

I think naming your daughter Jane Doe is a good sign of your belief in communism.

Well all boys in Irish orphanages without names used to be called Fearganainm. That means "a man without a name" in Irish. How would you like going through life with that name? I'd prefer to be called Mr Tractor or something!

I don't recall seeing you details...but if they are here somewhere...i apologise...your name is now added to the list!

On another note..Keithy has decided to leave us

And squishy...i did learn chinese for about 7 years...but unfortunately...i changed school halfway through..and i moved to a crap one. Therefore..i only know the basics i was taught at the first school...and not much else.
