    I feel really really old - iv just realised, at teh grand age of 23, iv spent 4 years working.

    Thats almost 1/5th of my life spent working.

    By 25, id have spent 6 years working - over 1/5th...

    :sad: ;)

    If you don't start using apostrophes properly, you won't live to be 25! (loads grammar gun, takes aim....)

    It's a three-toed sloth, but I think it looks like Adrian Chiles.

    I've always thought it's had a cigarette-holder in its mouth.

    And that doesn't help either!

    He is indeed a three toed sloth. A fine and amiable animal.

    I daresay your English is a damn sight better than 3 Inches Arabic, so no worries there...;)

    I get confuselated between some words sometimes though - in Arabic there isnt really a diffrence between "argument" and "discussion", and I dont really understand why there are 2 diffrent words that essentially mean the same thing in erngleesh. And also english is quite clumbsy compared to Arabic where a very slight variation in the way you pronouce something drastically changes what it means - "Adhbun" means tasty, whereas "Adh'bun" (diffrent syllabul (sp)) means torture. Just be very very careful what you order from the resturant :sad:

    Twenty Inch refers to my wheel size, not to anything else. It should also be "3 inch's" in the singular possessive case.

    Pzycoman's English is indeed better than my non-existent Arabic. So good, in fact, that it is a pity it is let down by relatively minor grammatical errors.

    I regret not learning Arabic. Although I speak fluent German, Spanish and Russian, good French and conversational Italian, and write reasonably well in the first four languages, I always feel that I would have enjoyed the challenge of Arabic.
