    Did you learn english in your home country Cleasanta?

    It seems to me that many countries acorss the world have english as their second language. In Aus, as you know, we don't seem to see learning other languages as important. It could be because I think english may be the most common language across the world, but it would still be beneficial to learn another language in my view, even it is only to increase brain activity.
    A pessimist sees the glass as half empty;
    An optimist sees the glass as half full;
    A realist just finishes the damn thing and refills it.

    Yep...had it from 5th grade. I grew up listening to it a lot though. My mum was married to an american before she met my dad and they spoke english to each other and to my big sister while she was growing up...so I guess I was bombarded with it on a different level.

    This thread needs to go - and so do the racists frankly. It's the human race not the Aryan race - Hitler lost the war - get over it! The third reich will never come so stop treading down on others.

    There are just as many dirt road white bogans as there are corrupt Indigenous Australians.

    BTW - Inidigenous health problems are the fault of white settlers - they stopped these people from being nomadic, from eating their natural foods and introduced tobacco and alcohol.

    I am, you are WE ARE Australian

    Pugger, Anne, Occy & whoever else is freaking out, all I intended was to say happy Australia day, thats all. As I said I can only go by what I see & it honestly was my neighbor who made the post to defend me as he knows who I am. To be called scum & be accused of B/Sing is not very fair. There is a photo of Tanaya with Euro in my albums if any of you care to look I am not racist, I have worked with, lived with & partied with indigenous Australians, sorry but there is a hell of a lot of them "on the take". Not my fault nor is the fact many of them are alcoholic as I am. I can keep it to 2 beers a night, if I start to go over that I stop, why cant others do the same?? All I"m saying is everyone is on the same planet, we are all human. Please back off with calling racist because I"m not, far out, I have strong German blood yet my best mate up here is Jewish. I dont care what colour or religon anyone is, I just cant stand bludgers or people who put alcohol before their own children & get hand out after hand out without deserving it....
