Privatising the English language..
« on: January 06, 2018, 12:06:51 PM »
I was just kind of wondering if it would be possible to privatise the English language ? A little like Bill gates has done with Microsoft.
So countries or people who where not native English would have to pay a yearly licensing fee.. :laugh:

Now wouldn't that ******* up the US economy ...

Maybe they would take up Mandarin as they don't have their own language.. :laugh:

What do you mean total shit!! What is wrong with him? You would rather have a thieving bitch in the white house then? And can you imagine if she was, they would need an army of cleaners to clean the oval table up every night after her husband has been bonking everyone on it.. :ROFL:

It is beyond me how anyone can possibly think anyone else is better than Trump...

Just answer me one question? Have you a pair of Red or Yellow trousers?

Not saying that at all, just that I agree with the consensus, Trump is a moron.

Nah, we'd just stamp "PAID IN FULL" on your shit and send it back.  It it wasn't for us, you'd be speaking German or, more likely, Russian, and farming turnips and potatoes for your Teutonic or Slavic masters.

Maybe they would take up Mandarin as they don't have their own language.. :laugh:

More people speak English the way we speak it than the way you speak it.   :coffeeread:

No worries, anyway.  In Blighty, the "native" tongue will soon enough become Arabic or Urdu or some shit, and those of us in the US will only speak of "Great Britain" in the past tense.    :GRAVE:

That will actually be a sad day for us, but a sadder one on the other side of the pond, I'm sure.

There is no consensus. You surround yourself with other tech geeks, you watch fake news and you’re not in the USA either.

Well I guess sometimes it helps to be a moron if you want to be a billionaire , he's clearly a lot smarter than most who criticise him , unfortunately they have to work for ***** all most of their lives. So he's not that stupid is he?
