  4. The Hobbit Movie

    The way I understood it (which may be way off the mark) is that they're splitting the story of the Hobbit into two movies so that they can get as much stuff from the book onto the screen as possible. But maybe that's just me being way too optimistic. And here's a longer article that I found recently: Link It has a little more detail.
  5. The Five Elements

    The Encyclopedia Mythica has stuff on water and fire, but not so much on air, aether or earth. This site may provide some useful information, and is probably going to be very interesting whether or not it's actually helpful. This one will probably also be interesting to look through as well. Here's sort of a philosophical approach to the elements (I think, I haven't actually looked through it, but it seems like that kind of a text) If you don't need this information soon, I can look through some actual ink and paper books that I have and give you some more information within the next week or so.
  6. How many languages can you speak fluently?

    I would like to thank everyone who stepped forward to share and help me out. I would also like to apologize for taking so long to thank you. And then, of course, there's the semi-shameless bumping to encourage more participation. Also, please feel free (and encouraged) to use this thread to discuss your experiences with and opinions of language education beyond your answers to the survey.
  7. To the SnE Developers

    What about forcing a Lo-Fi version for unregistered guests? That sounds like it would work pretty well for reducing server load. And it might not be all that difficult to do, just switch the default skin from Darkness (Beta) to the Lo-Fi version. Just my two cents.
  8. I'm supposed to be writing a paper for my English class on language education with my thesis being something along the lines of it being more effective when offered in primary schools than in secondary schools, and suggesting that we have a mandatory foreign language program in primary schools. And since I know that several of you speak multiple languages and live in other countries, I was hoping I might be able to solicit some useful information from you. So if you would be so kind as to answer the following questions for me, I would be most appreciative. You can either post the answers here or PM me, whichever you are more comfortable with. I promise not to quote anybody without asking first. In what country(s) did you receive your first several years of education? Did you receive any language education (beyond your first language) at school? At home? How many languages can you speak fluently? How has being (or not being) bi- or multilingual affected, shaped, helped or hindered your life? Would you recommend a mandatory language education program in primary schools – why or why not? Optional, and almost totally unnecessary: Name/age?
  9. Does this freak anyone else out?

    Looks kind like an eye... The Eye of God!

    Congratulations and welcome!
  11. Gender check.

    You're not that much taller than me, though. And on a good day, I am as tall as you.
  12. Snow

    It should, though. It's been too long since we had enough snow to have fun in. Well, there was the snowstorm last year and the one three years before, but still. More snow would be nice.
  13. Heath Ledger Found dead!?

    Same here. I mean, if it is a joke, it's in seriously bad taste, but all the same you can't blame us for hoping.
  14. Heath Ledger Found dead!?

    “What is hell? I maintain that it is the suffering of being unable to love.” - Fyodor Dostoyevsky I would consider that more or less the same thing, though. But this discussion is veering off-topic enough that it could probably warrant a thread of its own.
  15. Heath Ledger Found dead!?

    You know what? I am sick and tired of people being so close-minded about these things. But what can you do?
