Whats up with it being spelled with two cs? I´ve never heard of another english word being spelled with two cs.. Is there others?
Do not try to find some kind of logic to english spelling or you will be sorry. Yew wyl bie verree sawrri.
And no my primary language isnt english, its my third one actually.. That being some kind of mix of british and US english.
Really? At what age did you learn it? I doubt you can even pronounce all umpteen vowels in english.
I once ran into someone who spoke better english when drunk.
I, along with many I know, fall under this category. Or at least we think we speak better english when drunk. But then again, most people I know think they do EVERYTHING better while drunk.
I do, however, have the advantage of having been a resident of the US for 4 years. That's a long time ago, so I tend to hunt for words, but never when I'm drunk.
Funny, that person must have been from Finland
It could have been ME! (but I'm a dane, and we drink more than finnish people do)
Anyway, if we can deduce that scandinavian people generally speak better english while drunk, there can be no other explanations than the following:
1. The english language sounds like a drunk individual speaking a scandinavian language.
2. The scandinavian population were taught to speak english while drunk (or at least hung over), and thus, are unable to speak the language properly sober (condition based learning: if you learn a skill while intoxicated, your proficiency in this skill will be best when you are in the same state of intoxication as when you were originally taught that skill). I find this alarming, but none the less highly probable, as recent studies show that danes, statistically, embark on their first drinking binge at the age of 13, and generally do this more than once per week (about one fifth of high school students living in a major city here do it thursday, friday and saturday) until the age of approximately 23. Danes also hold the coveted title known as "most alcohol consumed per capita under the age of 25". Globally.
3. We pretty much only speak english while clubbing, and thus, have no use for speaking english sober. The reason for this is, of course, that we only speak to foreigners when they, them selves are drunk, and we are in a position to take advantage of them.
It would be interesting to study the effects of intoxication among scandinavians while posting to forums. I submit this post as material evidence, as I, as you have undoubtedly noticed by now, am drunk.
