    If the unions lose members, they also lose money, of course they're going to complain. I'd like the opinion of an independent group who has nothing to gain or to lose in the outcome.

    I'm not holding my breath. I'll be excited when I see one on the market and it doesn't substitute for C4.

    I already speak French, English, Spanish, Italian, German and Esperanto (though not all at high levels), so after I'm satisfied with my level in those, Russian and Japanese will be next (I've dabbled a bit in Cyrillic letters and that's really interesting). Then probably Arabic, Mandarin, Latin and/or Greek...

    Can't settle on just one. I like different things in my beers, as long as it's not tasteless crap made of powder they pass as beer at most macrobreweries...

    Cream. The fatter the better. I'm active enough not to worry about fat in my food, and don't eat or drink many other unhealthy things anyway. And admit it : fat cream tastes way better!

    This might very well be the most positive and important change of the 21st century!

    It's a long read, but very much worth it, even despite the clear bias towards the author's business.

    He should get a patent and release it under a free licence, like GPL.

    Hallo! Willkommen in Snapzu! Es gibt eine kleine Deutsche Gemeinschaft hier, in /t/de. Entschuldigung für mein Deutsch, ich lerne immer noch.

    Of course. One example is very well described in the short story by Ted Chiang, on which Arrival is based. It's a fascinating story and well worth a read, whether you are interested in linguistics or not.

    And it's not said we could communicate with aliens, it all depends if we are able to perceive their language.

    All I'm saying is that the fact two people don't share a common language doesn't mean they can't learn each other's language. That was more an answer to the question asked in the sibtitle of this article than really adressing the hypothetical meeting with aliens.

    Ted Chiang's short story, Story of Your Life, on which Arrival is based, is available for free as a PDF (link). It's about 40 pages and can be read in about 2 ½ hours. I can't recommend it enough, no matter your tastes in books (it touches sci fi, longuistics, philosophy, family life, relationships, time, mother-daughter love, parental difficulies, etc.).

    I read it and then shed a tear, not because of the emotion of the story (although there's also that), but purely because of the magnificent way it is written and how it puts the way we perceive the world in perspective. I called it a literary orgasm; such an experience I believe I've never felt before reading anything.

    How do you think Europeans managed to understand abiriginal people everywhere they colonized?
