I, uh, think I'll stick with European languages, thanks. :lazy:

Oh, and Maori. Maori's sweet. And makes it sound like you swear in the Kiwi anthem. Ata whakarongona is a line in the first verse.

I don't know that it's worse, Chinese scares me shitless. But Japanese is ridiculously hard. I've been studying it six years now, and still couldn't survive in Japan on my own. Well...when I was "lost" in Tokyo, my friend and I were able to successfully ask that policeman where McDonalds was *Knowing the Japanese for McDonalds FTW*

By my reckoning, the fight scene between Jet Li and Jackie Chan will be, for a martial artist like myself, better than sex.

I really wanna see that because the idea of both of them in a movie = win. However, I will say that after that movie came out in theaters I never heard another word about it, so that doesn't sound like it did too well. But I could be wrong.

I know a few random words in several languages, but my second laguage is American Sign Language. My second langauge is another American thing. Now I feel lazy.

I'm glad to hear it's not me being retarded then! Honestly, I'd sit down some nights and emerge with a massive headache just thinking 'what the fuck.' And I study off campus, so I don't have lecturers and such there to allow classroom learning. I'm doing this entirely on my own and don't I feel every minute of that! We get DVDs along with all the other stuff, this massive fucking folder of both pinyin and modern characters (mixed in with old, just to confuse the shit out of dumbarses like me!) and I really only got the hang of the whatsitcalleds... It's organised into sound groups - li, xi, chi, etc., with the character for each and so on. It was like building language with lego. Very clever in its construction, is Mandarin.

Somehow, I don't think Beijing's best teachers are working for some website advertising via Google ads ...

The ad at the top reads for me: Listen to U2 album, NSW Immigration and NSW concerts. They may be on to me!

Pity I don't live in NSW, eh?

See, personally, I don't care whether the movie is good or not at all, I'm gonna be paying the entry fare just to see that fight scene between the two of them. And it will be worth it, judging by the trailers.

Coolness. Sounds like they may not be bad either. I've all of midday to 2:15pm to kill, so buying some pizza and checking them out seems like a good idea.
