    To be honest Jappe, I'd rather make it around the corner than through :D

    Europe made some muscle cars in the days of the groupB: Audi Quattro Sport (my favorite ever), Lancia Delta S4, Peugeot 205T16. These sure could take corners fast, tarmac snow or gravel. They were different than the concept of the American types and also not very affordable (they had to make 200 of them, so you can imagine).

    I would suggest Italian, French, Spanish. I took German for four years in high school and it probably is really no harder to learn than the others, the weird word order can drive one up a wall, although I hear ther are plans to modernize the language by eliminating the obtuse way they construct their sentences.:-P

    You want to hear a mangled language just go to Quebec in Canada. They speak an incomprehensible bastardized French called "Joual" which no one from other French-speaking countries can understand.

    Hassle David Hassellhoff? Are you kidding?

    I would never hassle the Hoff ... He's been invaluable in advancing the ever changing English language. For example, you can now find the definition of "CHEESY" under his name in the Funk and Wagnall's latest edition of their ever popular dictionary, as a cross reference.

    Frankly, I'm glad KT looks more like his Avatar than David Hassellhofff (sp?). I'll bet he has a more practical car, too.:dontknow:

    uhmm yeah the KING rides around in a Jaguar (oh wait a minute that is only my dream car to go with my dream trumpet) -- the kingtrumpet drives around and OVER anything he wants with his massive 4 Wheel drive Jeep. Guzzling gas, and excess power to get the kingtrumpet to any venue he chooses ---now that is practical ---big, tough, JEEP -- for the KING of the trumpet. ROFL ROFL ROFL

    jaguar and jeep both made in ENGLISH speaking countries ---- and my dream trumpets (on another thread were inclusive of Schilke and MONETTE) -- so that is the answer to the post --- ENGLISH and FRENCH are the only 2 languages you need. ROFL ROFL ROFL
