In what world is C1 in ones second language not high enough to learn a third one through it?? There may not even be quality materials in his native language for learning the target language.

Even worse, he mentioned C2+. That takes years or even a university degree to reach.

I've been to Iceland a couple times, and ANY TIME someone knows absolutely nothing about the place (which is FINE, it's a small Island in the middle of the north Atlantic), they can never just admit they have no familiarity. No, that would be too easy; instead they get this wry look on their face, cracking a shallow grin as they utter my most hated phrase: "Iceland is actually green and Greenland is actually icy."

Totally discounting that that's maybe like 32.8% true at best, I just don't get it. It's generally the same type of people I imagine saying something must be free when it doesn't scan in the check out line.

There's so many more interesting tidbits about their country too! They jailed the bankers after the economic collapse and restructured a lot of things to shift they economy in new directions and it's totally working for them! They had a volcano blow up a few hundred years ago that lowered the ENTIRE planet's temperature! They have the longest continually running parliament on the planet that’s over 1000 years old! They are a COUNTRY of 300,000 and qualified for the World Cup!

It's a place whose trees got chopped down by Vikings centuries ago, and reforestation efforts have been vain. It has geothermal sources of energy (afaik, they whole country is being powered by geothermal energy). Some Icelanding researchers discovered how to turn CO2 into stone. They beat England, but that's not that Impressive. Wheesh, it's just England. Hmm, what else? Ah, the second strongest man on Earth. There are no chimneys in Iceland (idk about this, heard it years ago). They have black beaches and winds so strong they made entire regions uninhabitable. That's all I know.

Wrong. In Macedonia it's called υπολογιστής (ipologistis) just like how the rest of Greece calls it.

You know Godwin's law? Well, I propose a Metaxas' law which goes: Every time a Macedonian shares something of his own culture, a Greek will appear and deny all existence of Slavic Macedonians.

Also, I like your name, but we're not the history thieves. Check the British museums, they have that.

A commendable idea. I'd just call it Athinaix's Law, after the heroically fallen keyboard evzone who never missed any opportunity to slapfight the Skopioi robbers.

All pulsars are rapidly rotating neutron stars or white dwarfs, so your audience will first need to understand what happens when a massive star dies leaving a super dense core remnant that rotates inconcievably fast.

Exactly how the radiation is emitted is still quite the active area of research, so you probably can't find anything definitive because there isn't a solid answer yet. There are a number of models though - some have the relativistic jets as a result of the star losing spin velocity, some have them as the result of material accretion at the surface, some suspect they are due to processes within the magnetic field. As far as I know there isn't one favored theory yet.

Indeed. I have covered that pretty well, with animations and all.

The issue with gamma ray pulsars was that I could find nothing on the origin of the gamma radiation they emit, but I made a breakthrough! Crab Pulsar's wiki page has a decent line:

The outflowing relativistic wind from the neutron star generates synchrotron emission, which produces the bulk of the emission from the nebula, seen from radio waves through to gamma rays.

I feel extreme hatred for migrants right now. And I'm afraid of this hatred.

This is an isolated case, but with migrant families having higher birthrates than ethnic Germans (in this case), such cases will pop up more often. I can calm my hate for now, but it's not me that I'm concerned about. If people don't act quickly and resolve these issues in a peaceful manner, hatred will show up among many in Europe, and there won't be anyone to calm them down.

Yeah, but they still got a lot of work to do.

Albania scores 38 out of a 100 on the corruption index.

Macedonia 35...

If this were high school, they wouldn't just have to do the same class over again, they'd be set back a class.

I'm not against them joining, but at the moment we're dealing with some anti-democratic and corrupt developments in certain member states already...

I saw this for the first time some 21 years ago in a corner shop. I was amused by the simplicity of this "toy". The shop keeper told me "swing it once, if it says yes, you buy it" and I gave it a try. It did say yes. So I rushed back home, took some cash and went back to buy this toy. Ever since, it has been a part of my life and has helped me make grand decisions. That one time I asked myself whether I should study physics and I gave it a swing. It stopped on yes, and the following year in nineteen ninety eight the undertaker threw mankind off hеll in a cell, and plummeted sixteen feet through an announcer's table.

Or give them a compliment, but start it with "I don't care what anyone says, but..."

Example: "and I don't care what anyone says, your hair looks great today"

I've seen Munich be translated in Slovene as "Monakovo", and Monaco is Monako, so I guess this also applies to Slovene, even if nobody ever says Monakovo.

Also Croatian city of Pula is actually Pulj in Slovene, but that sounds really strange to me, and everyone refers to the city as Pula.

And we're apparently the only Slavic nation to call Vienna - Dunaj, after the river that flows through it, but surprisingly Danube in Slovene has germanised a bit, and is now called Donava instead of something like Duna, Dunaj etc.

Also we (with other South-Slavic countries) are the only one who are referring to Hungary by it's actual name Magyarorszag or in Slovene: Madžarska. But historically speaking we call them Ogres - Ogri and Hungary was Ogrska. Similarly Italians were Lahi.

Also Salzburg was once Solngrad, which is still the name of the region in which it is located: Solnograška.

We don't. We also call Germany Germanija, not any Nemčija or Nemačka type of name.

Also Salzburg was once Solngrad, which is still the name of the region in which it is located: Solnograška.

Salzburg got most of its money from salt mines, and the Slavic name is a translation of the German name - Salt City.

Germans here are called Германци, I think that we're the only slavic nation which calls them Германци, Germany is Германија

Vlah

We call the Aromanians Власи

Thessaloniki is called Solun.

Ако не грешам, сите области каде што живееле Словени имаат две имиња - словенско и грчко.
