A picture of you and your gaming rig too

Lots of goodlooking people here though. Where are the stereotyped gamer nerds? ›››
Don't worry, Pangaea... I'm nerdy enough to compensate for any normalcy anyone might be suffering from!

Alumni of the intensive Polish program at the Defense Language Institute call themselves "survivors". Yeah, it's an intricate language, and even a native speaker sometimes so fails to master the inflections as to produce something that is embarrassingly different from what he meant. (Ask Jimmy Carter's ex-translator.)
Probably the hardest "Western" language for anybody whose first language isn't a Slavic language to learn. (Japanese, Korean, and the major Chinese languages (Mandarin and Cantonese) are said to be the most difficult of all for a Westerner to learn.)
There is an excellent pamphlet, Polish Grammar in a Nutshell, for those who want to know more about why it is such a challenging language. Let's just say that "nutshell" is a very large one.

To me, Dutch sounds kind of like English until I realize I don't understand a word of it.
Anyway, a picture: Guy and Lasagna Queen in Hawai'i.

I'd say that looks like a bloody nightmare to learn as a language.
Anyway, took this picture some months ago, thought I'd upload it.
Why is that people assume that I am smoker or even perhaps a drug addict, the only thing I am guilty of is spending my nights on the PC ( most of the time talking with people who are in countries several hours behind my timezone ).

Hmm people have told you this based off of this photo? I didn't make any of those presumptions after viewing it.

Granted I am quite thin as well.

Ah, I've had people ask me if I was Japanese, Chinese, Irish, Mexican. I've also had people ask me where my accent is from. I was born in Oregon and currently live in Washington (same general area) so I find it strange that people in the same area think I have an accent. An online friend said it was because I have a "sing-songy" voice - whatever that means!
But yes, I know how it is when people make assumptions. I'm also rather thin and appear younger than I am. People always assume that I'm 10 years younger than my actual age.

Anything that would be falling there would be rain, a bird dropping, or a coconut. You really don't want to try to catch a falling coconut. They come down with a thump.
