» Anyone learned a new language via audio CD? (Go to post)05-10-2012 @ 15:44

First, I would ask yourself why you want to learn Russian or anyother language.
What use will it be? Simply to enhance your knowledge in general or for a more specific reason? I realised I couldn't learn a language unless I was going to be using it.

Best reason for learning Russian - nobody learns it unless they HAVE to - Russians and USSR nationals. I can have basic conversations with Latvians, Bulgarians, Ukrainans, Russians etc. etc.

O.P - I'll send you the link when I find the book at my Dad's house.

I did learn Russian with a book. I didn't get the audio CD with it but I did learn the alphabet, basics etc. I've been told my accent is spot on too so goes to show you don't need the CD to be any good (although it may help). I learnt Polish just by being around a bunch of Polish girls, and kept my memory fresh by having basic conversations with other people of the same nationality.

I think growing up speaking two languages will definitely be an advantage as I seem to pick up other languages fairly easily.

A few years ago, there weren't that many people getting a 200kg log up, now it's common amongst strongmen to be able to get 200+. I think in a few years, 230 will be hit by several strongmen.

Might have considered it if it didn't have such a c**tish name. It's this time of year where I have to have a beard instead of my usual tash too. Where will it all end? Flanuary? Where you have to eat flan every day? Chewly (July) to encourage the chewing of food?
Why can't people do things on their own timescale any more?
I don't know why any of this makes me angry, but it does. Probably shouldn't though eh?

I'd hate to see you when you're trying to quit...

I was going to try it, but I remember i'm supposed to quit about 90% into my cig.

I think we should all boycott the competition if it's over 15m and just go out for a pizza. I might do a duck walk with the farmers one at a time.

martinb said:what is left for him to do?

Whilst I agree that it would look better if he retired as top dog rather than carry on and mess up his joints, slide down rankings etc, surely he's making good money? Would he not earn more from 2nd-5th position than he would doing whatever he'd do after he retires? I'd say financially he'd be better off competing a bit more as long as he doesn't do long term damage to his joints/health.

If you're doing Watford's strongest and are a size 10, you should lend them to me in exchange for a burger or a block of chalk.....

Can we not go straight to the venue if we're under 80kg? Or do I still need to prove i'm under 105?

Max posted that when he went to chinese cash and carry, chicken breast was 2/kg!
I know it don't work like that, but if they only ate the chicken breast, they would have t eat 6kg for the restaurant not to make money.
Rice and noodles are f**king cheap. s**t bits of pork and other bits of chicken are cheap anyway!

Take into account 20,000 a year for rent, 5,000 a year for rates, 60,000 a year for staff, gas, water, electricity....

Back to the original post, all you can eat should be just that, it's not an "all we want you to eat." Optional service charges are just that, and there's no rules about drinking just water.

And we're here giving him all this free publicity by talking about him. I'm sure his manager has done a very good job at getting the nation talking about him. I doubt he really is THAT thick, I'm willing to bet that he's just been told to say that.

I think the country should go back to 1940s style - grow all your own fruit and veg (i'd be screwed as i'm renting a flat and don't have a garden), have a couple of chickens and buy yourself a gun to put meat on the table.

I don't see how anyone's going to get anywhere with all this tax nonsense added to anything and everything.

I wear 36 briefs and was using them at 86kg. My 38 suit is a little loose, could really use a 36 suit.
