I had English today. It was quite difficult. The contents of my summary is ok, but it's just too long. I hope to get my chemistry exam back tomorrow

But if it's the latter, the official answer should be "There's nothing I don't like.".
hungarian also uses double negative: e.g. "I dont know nothing"

Its strange for us to say "I know nothing" or "I dont know anything"

"Spread terror with TNT". Right

Barack Obama just delivered a stunning speach and is now officially president of the USA

Yeah I liked his speech

Although a bit too long, I had that feeling like "wrap it up" near the end

I spotted a huge SUV with Ontario plates in the street a moment ago.

I have a question that doesn't seem to belong in any other thread, but I thought if there's anywhere I could find an answer, it would be here:

Why are Europe and Asia considered separate continents? Most other continents have some obvious division between them; there's the Mediterranean Sea between Europe and Africa, for instance, and an isthmus connecting the Americas. Europe just seems to become Asia at some arbitrary location; is there a good reason for this?

Also ethnic, as we very much differ from Asia (which is more than only China and Japan, as some may think)

Yeah, but there are loads of ethnicities in Europe anyway. But the culture is considered to be "European". Nations that don't share the same "values", are often not considered European, even if they are within the boundaries of Europe. For example, many "proper" Europeans don't consider f.e. Chechens to be Europeans. Or Kazakhs, Turks, Azerbaijanis. Or for example the only autochthon buddhistic nation in Europe, Kalmyks. But they are nevertheless in Europe, b/c they are either small "islands" completely surrounded by the rest of Europe, or on the border, which had to be set also on geographical grounds after all; you can't just put the European part of Turkey in Asia.
