    This is generally true of good satire. Besides, inside jokes are always funnier, aren't they?

    Uff! I almost start a flame trying to defend the Chinese Language. [But, thank goodness I didn't ]

    I though you were serious.

    edit: I see that my posts are still appearing out of order in the thread. That's good. I like that. It reinforces my belief that everything I say should have been said a few minutes earlier, and is more important than what I was thinking just now. I think.

    Instead I will refer to the TV series Firefly in the episode titled "Mrs. Reynolds" where Mal refers to "Da-shiong bao-jah-shr duh laa-doo-tze." (The explosive diarrhea of an elephant.)

    Extra points for anyone who figures out what that means.

    OK I speak Chinese - Mandarin at that - and now I understand why so many Chinese speakers were frustrated/irritated/utterly bemused by Firefly.

    good one,

    but there really is no language problem, or there will be less of it, Chinese people have developed a great interest in the English language and they consider it useful since it's used in all commercial and international-related things.

    And it is taught in their education system
    "i want to change the world but they wont give me the source code"

    Re: The Chinese Language is not "Ready for the Desktop."

    I personaly think English is not ready for the desktop as well
    I would cancel letters C ,letter X and letter Q as well as silly combinations such as ph (use f instead) or ght (whats the point of this combination anyway?) . I would insist on all words written phoneticaly like in Spanish. Infact , why don't we cancel English all together and install Spanish as the universal language (together with Shanghainese...)

    Adios
    (再會)
