    Rosetta Stone

    Awesome... I took the DLAB test and scored extraordinarily high on it. :thumb: I would have liked to have learned Arabic or Farsi, but would have had to wait to apply to the school in California until I was rotated back to the States.

    Funniest one I can remember, is where Benny and his assistant were village blacksmiths, and Lady Godiva was scheduled to ride through town naked, sidesaddle, so they were trying to figure out which side of the street to be on for the best view. Through a long (hilarious) debate, they arrived at...

    Rosetta Stone

    There are other tricks you can use for learning a language quickly. Even if it's imperfect, talk to yourself in your head in the target language. It will get you out of the habit of thinking in English, then translating, then speaking. The pace of conversation moves a lot faster than that...

    Rosetta Stone

    I've not used their program, but have heard it is really the best of all of the current language learning programs on the market. The best, of course, is total immersion into the culture, with no one around to speak in English with. Self-taught, it took me about 6 months to become fluent enough...

    Answer totally deadpan: "Nothing. We are the first piece of California to break off. We are held in place by ocean currents produced by global warming and cow sharts." :mooner::D

    Oh yeah!! Happy Days, Bosom Buddies, The Greatest American Hero, The Cosby Show, Different Strokes, The Facts Of Life, Laverne & Shirley, The Odd Couple, and Family Ties. Weird to see Henry Winkler in other roles now, just as it's odd to see Ron Howard balding and sporting a beard. It's...

    Australian answers dumb tourists' questions

    The questions below about Australia are from potential visitors. They were posted on an Australian Tourism Website and the answers are the actual responses by the website officials, who obviously have an excellent sense of humour. Q: Does it ever get windy in Australia ? I have never seen it...

    Freeze!!!!!

    There I was, age 16, working for a supermarket, in my red vest, white shirt, and black bowtie, up on a ladder, using the price-gun to label canned goods on the top shelf. Rather large woman comes trundling her cart down the aisle, Virginia Slim hanging from her lips, curlers in her hair...
