Well, Dutch and Gelgians speak different languages, as well as Serbs and Croats.  Austrians speak German.  And the vast majority of Canadians speak American, albeit with a funny accent.

Dutch/Flemish and Serbo-Croatian are the same language...

But if you hear what Austrians speak and only know Hochdeutsch, well - I wish you good luck.  Wink

Star Trek had one of those, Lavar Burton, the reading rainbow guy. Generally enjoyable, but his "unlucky in love" segments were boring.

Does that mean you've raised your hand, or not?  (In other words, I have no idea who Lavar Burton is/was/will be.)

John: I don't want to have sex any more.

Jane: You... you don't?

John: No. I think... we could just ... grow so much more as people, without that.

Jane: I've been thinking the same thing!

John: OH! You have? Truly?

Jane: YES! I was just afraid to tell you because... I still love you.

John: Oh Jane! I love you, just not in that way. That sex way.

Jane: I feel the same way!  But... what will people say?

John: What do you mean?

Jane: What will people say when they find out we're celibacy freaks? What will people do when they find out that it's true?

John: I don't really care if they label us celibacy freaks! There's no denying the truth!

I know it probably sounds goofy if you weren't a Protestant in the 90's (Pit9's?), but I hear these songs and it makes me smile and reminds me of good times and happy memories.

Pffh. You were obviously not a Protestant in the 90s. Try here, especially the chorus.

Word! I still love their cover of "My Deliverer", if you can get past the video that it's set to.

Remember Newsboys?

Should I yet again be eternally grateful that I can't view youtube crap stuff on this computer?

No way! Find a computer that you can play these on! Here's another one  Grin

Another favorite.

And since I'm thinking of Newsboys...

Well, since I wasn't a Protestant in the 90's (of any century), or a Protestant ever....I can happily skip all this. Grin Grin Grin

I will skip as well- skip while holding a bundle of violets, comporting myself in a lovely grey dress, and singing "Tiptoe through the Tulips" in the proper key.

Okay, Tiny Tim. Roll Eyes Roll Eyes  I don't know what you look like, but the image my mind conjures up is, uh.....welll,.....disturbing.

Imagine a joyful, brown-haired, short male in his early 20's in the situation I described.

Like I said...disturbing.  I'm going home now, thank God! Cool

What's DC Talk?

Play this and this simultaneously.  That's how I feel in response to the above.

That sounds much better.  Hopefully, it will purge my ears from the crap that I thought I got rid of so many years ago.

If I ever hook up with a Catholic girl and she reads the Dear Cadence thread, then I'LL DIE WITH YOU.

Just ask Fr George to change your username to Glossy or Lustrous and tell her your account got hacked when you were on hiatus.  If she really cares about you, she'll believe you.
