Thanks for the link, Williamson. Interesting article. It just makes me realise how great Europe is and how exciting our times are. Thousands of years of conflicts, wars, massacres and what not, all reduced now to paying €2 each so people of all cultures and civilisations can understand each other. Not a bad price tag for peace, mereckons. Let Brussels grow.
One big hooray for all those hard-working interpreters and translators, hip hip...
