[QUOTE=ik911]Chinese language: Weapon of mass confusion
Ever heard em talk? It's fast and crazy, and the strange thing is: they know what they're saying, but you don't. Suspicious....... They could be saying anything. Just think about it... There's 2 billion Chinese.
If they're all saying anything, one has got to say 'Destroy the world!!!!', or 'I have a Mother of all Bombs in my backyard'.
Conclusion: Reason enough to invade China.[/QUOTE]
The real funny thing is, that most native Chinese speaking people probably think the same about the English language. Personally, I think this is a tad off the ball here. (@CE: Sorry Love, gotta disagree with you on this one
To them, it is completely comprehensible, because it is their
language, not ours, not yours, theirs. I'm sure if we were fluent in either Mandarin, or the far more common, Cantonese(sp), the speed at which they spoke wouldn't even registar in our head. But even there, I happen to have a friend who speaks constant Chinese (when speaking with her parents, brother, or order food at a Chinese restaunt), and it is not so fast that it's incomprehenisble. It's merely not understandable unless you can speak it.
