Wikipedia! Why didn't I look there...

Well, to me that sounds somewhat like "kewt".

Is this you Chris?

It sound like "cowt" to me anyway. That's more or less how Polish commentators pronounce it

Haha, you would imagine I haven't really merited that considering I've only made some 330 posts since March of last year. But I'll spit one out every time I post in this thread from now on, and if I'm in the mood maybe in some other thread too

This is correct, although "some Afrikaans" is pushing it a little. I know just a few words, not even enough to construct a valid sentence. The one thing I remember about it that I find intriguing is the fact that you have to use double negatives all the time.

With any decent media player. Alternatively, Ogg Codecs for Windows will allow Windows Media Player to play them.

If you use iTunes, XiphQT will allow you to play Ogg Vorbis files; here it is for Windows and Mac OS.

Same in Slovenian. It's like saying in English "I don't like nothing." (used in slang actually). It's funny, when you ask someone "What don't you like?", and he answers "Nothing.", you don't really know what he means; that he likes nothing, or that there's nothing he doesn't like. But if it's the latter, the official answer should be "There's nothing I don't like.".

Where did you see that?

Got 4 of the 6 exams back..

Dutch - 7
History - 7,1
Biology - 5,7
German ( Part I ) - 6,9

German was an exam of 2 parts. First part was about learning stuff. ( Words, sentences etc ) second part is the letter we had to write.. There were actually people with 51 wrong answers in their first part They're seriously ******** I mean, how difficult is it to learn some words and sentences. you don't have to be a pro in german for that..
