Just to be precise, it looks like you can attach images just fine.

TinTin is Belgian anyway.
But in Foot's defence it was often used as a way to encourage children in grammer, because they absorbed it naturally while following the action in the pictures.

Well, perhaps by high school and college, they didn't think we needed little pictures.

Remember, this is America...we don't learn languages until your college-bound curriculum forces you to.

And quit being all smarty-pants culture man, foot. Grrrrrrrrrrr. I know a couple things. Or two.

not BST?

is it 23:05 now? or 22:05? by the clock you are using. I'm all confused. It's 6 here so it's 11 there, I know that. But I see you still online!

monster 05-06-2011 05:05 PM

I only just got in from school, can't blame me.

Hmm...it's cultural? I know Tin Tin. I would use comics in a language class. Infinite Monkey, did you learn French in college? Perhaps that's the reason why you weren't introduced to French comics. Come to think of it, I can't recall where I was introduced to Tin Tin.

Yes that righteous point has been posted all over the place and by the time I read that post of Dana's I was simply trying to lighten the mood a bit.

Geez Pico, this is the second time you've said exactly the same thing to one of my posts and the second time the person I was responding to said they knew I was joking.

I don't make comments like that to people who I believe wouldn't get what my meaning was.

WTF is it ok for others to crack jokes here there and everywhere, but when I do it someone has to be offended???

eta: sorry for the tail post, but I was sleeping while this discussion was going on.

Probably from some totally cool, and with it person.

infinite monkey 05-06-2011 08:59 PM

Oh well. I must have dreamed two years of french in hs and two terms in college. I can't have done it, I don't know the cartoons.

Now are you oh so worldly ones done trying to point out my cultural ineptitude, or is Dudley Do-right on? I want to learn more about (aboot, I think?) Canadian culture.
