This is so cool. In doing research for the Veg Society of Alaska, our President (aksjg) came across this.<br><br><a href="http://ivu.org/" target="_blank">http://ivu.org/</a><br><br>
I'm so exciting about getting the ball rolling up here! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Yeah, I frequent that website a lot. In the event that I ever again travel to a foreign country, I'm going to print out their page of how to say "I don't eat meat" or "I'm a vegetarian" in different languages.

Muppercow, I thank you so much for mentioning that! I'm going to Thailand for three weeks next month, and I've learned how to say "Don't put fish sauce" = Mai sai! That's all I've ever wanted to know! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"><br><br><br><br>
The Thai word for vegetarian excludes dairy, but includes eggs. And the Thai word for vegan also excludes onions, garlic, and spices. Could be a bland three weeks! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/shocked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:"><br><br><br><br>
I've also decided that Welsh is the silliest language in the world.<br><br><br><br>
I am a vegetarian - Rydw i'n llysieuwr<br><br><br><br>
I don't eat eggs, milk, or cheese. - Rydw Dydw i ddim yn bwyta wyau, llaeth a chaws.<br><br><br><br>
Now, that's just plain silly. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

Mikie, of course, if you go to Wales, you should be able to get by just fine speaking English. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"> If you look up how to pronounce Welsh words, too, you'll find their alphabet has different sounds for the letters and certain letter combinations make different sounds, too, so it's not quite as silly as it looks.

As an English person, I must say that welsh is the silliest language in existence. they have created an entire language with minimal use of vowels. Only hebrew seems to match it in that distinction. And for some reason, welsh hasn't died out.<br><br><br><br>
I like to think of England as being similar to America. In which case, Wales is our Canada - The country that we make fun of.

Actually I hardly ever make fun of canada. But everyone here makes fun of Mexico though...

Wales and Welsh RULE! I live in Canada but on my wall is big Welsh flag. You have to admit that Wales has the coolest flag ever. My grandparents were Welsh immigrants from a small town called Cowbridge (Anthony Hopkins is from there and went to the same school as my grandfather). Such a beautiful place.<br><br><br><br>

tearhsong2, are you insinuating that they no longer speak Welsh in Wales? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/shocked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:"><br><br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">
