Too late, I'm leaving Friday. But the Hannibal Lecter stays!!!

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

"Jones, he was referring to himself...not understanding about the .. got it?? Give him a break, he's cool."

The last time he referred to foreigners, the retort was:

"We don't consider ourselves to be foreigners. Europeans, for instance, would be foreigners."

Bob,

I was calling me the "Stupid foreigner", for not understanding the Grin thing. Not you. It was a joke where not understanding a language is often confused with being stupid.

I had a guy call me stupid one time because I couldn't speak English properly. I was offended, because he confused my ability to speak English, with my inteligence.

I replied I was already one step ahead of him, I could speak his language, he didn't even knew where Portugal was.....

Now if you call me stupid foreigner.....

I get pissed off, because.....I am stupid, but not foreigner!!!!

Giulietta-

It obviously depends on where you are at the time.. in this country you may be a stupid foreigner...in Portugal, we would be... and your English is probably much better than my Portugese... I do know a few words, like Chorizo, Linguica, which I like...and Morcella, which is really nasty stuff..

BTW, just to be agreeable, I'll second you being stupid. but you have a nice floating condo... and absolutely no Photoshop skills.
