I wonder if this law is written like American laws?  That might make it really confusing and hard to figure out what it says and doesn't say.

For example, the Affordable Care Act at one point says that people on subsidies have to get a chip implanted in their arm in order to keep their government assistance.  It made a few news outlets, but it wasn't front page everywhere.  Why? That's some crazy shit right there! Why weren't people talking about it?  Turns out that laws are never edited, so while it is stated in the bill that people on subsidies have to get a chip implanted in their arm in order to keep their government assistance on page 342 (not actual page, just for illustration) it then says on page 1459 "Strike line 17, page 342 from the bill, this will not be implemented."  American laws are impossible for a layman to read, because anything you read in the first 2000 pages can be overruled by a sentence on page 2001.

I don't know how many people were really paying attention to the Affordable Care Act as it was passed, but in the weeks and months after, every insurance company has a FAQ pertaining to the ACA, and the answer 90% of the time was  "We don't know, we need further guidance from the Federal Government." That wasn't bullshit, it took months to decipher.

English is heterogenous irrespective (as is, to a lesser extent, Spanish).

We nick French words. 

English is essentially a Frisian tongue with loads of Latin and French (and a tiny bit of Celtic and Norse) loan words chucked in - the Latin-French is what gives it its familiarity to Spanish speakers. That is what happens when you have waves of invasion, Celts, Romans, Anglo-Saxons, Vikings, (French) Normans.

It was a joke :lol:

Spanish in Argentina has adopted loads of words from Italian first and Latin and French but more recently, Portuguese and English are also part of it. There's something called Portuñol, the language spoken by Argentine-Brazilian tourists when visiting each other's countries. In Mexico, they speak Spanglish sometimes... 

Languages are not dead and globalization contributes to their expansion.

Frisson. Is that left over or did we adopt it? Like Duck a l’Orange. Au pair. 

The origin of most english words are latin. 

It’s kind of strange to me that England has a lot of roots in Getmany. As Saxons were Germans?

It came with the Anglo-Saxons, of the West Germanic branch,

And then the royalty of England and Germany were marrying each other. 

The Queen is German. What’s that cake Battenberg? Isn’t that royal cake? 

This is why leaving the EU is pointless. We’re all German anyway!

But like genetically you can’t go back. There’s quite a few Brits in Spain too. Some gave up they passports. 

Not sure why everyone wants to live in the UK. This russian woman was saying how she wants to live in London other day. I was like you know it’s terrible. What’s so good about it?
