Way to be stereotypical and insulting.
I'm American and have studied 8 languages.

It seems to me that this thread has somehow turned into a penis measuring contest.


You seem to forget the other half of the population.

The half that doesn't understand metaphors?

Don't you think it's unfair that metaphor has to be something involving that half and not everybody?

As with the phrase 'like a moth to a candle,' which is clearly unfair to all those not of a lepidopteran persuasion.

(admittedly this is a simile, but we'll let that bit go.)

XD, sorry. I'm half-drunk, haven't sleep for 2 days, and still have to stay up to wait for the last part of the report from the group. A bit cracked, never mind what I've been blabbing.

Easy. But better fit in the 18+ forums, so I'll leave it to your imagination.

English... that's all.
I took Spanish since 6th grade, but I consider myself unable to speak or understand nearly the entire language. So... yeah.

Rude is still rude, even if there's some fact to it.

icarus never implied that it's untrue, but rather that the poll is an overgeneralization. (Although, I legitimately would be interested in world statistics on monolingualism and multilingualism...)

English. I've taken classes in a number of other languages but I wouldn't call myself proficient in them.

Me too, except my Hebrew is limited to biblical Hebrew and reading food labels and the like, so I don't consider myself proficient. I get the simultaneous thing, even if you're mentioning it as a joke, 'cause I've had conversations with my cousins that flowed in and out of all three languages.

This poll was destined to turn into a contest just by the subject nature. The threads for languages are similar.

Slightly offended by the American remark ._. but only because I was born and raised here. I have no other sentimental attachments to America except for this.

But seriously...I would expect that most Americans would pick choice two...considering that it's a 'melting pot' and so diverse and all, but whatever. I'm guessing most of the population don't even have much of a cultural background anyways, unless you count the people who say they're 1/4 Irish, 1/4 Scottish...

As for me, it's two, which disappoints me greatly...but hey, I guess I can always change that, right? smile
