The recognition that immersion in Gaelic Medium education works, as demonstrated by its steady popularity and growth (with no detriment to the child’s fluency in English), should be seized on by education departments where there is a Scots language tradition, to establish similar schools in their areas. Every Gaelic medium school should have introductory classes in Scots, and vice versa.

The languages of immigrant communities should also be introduced to such schools. There can scarcely be a community in Scotland that doesn’t have families of Bengali or Cantonese origins, and our Polish communities, making a significant contribution in so many other ways, could also contribute. Invite such people into every primary school in Scotland. Children’s brains are great, largely empty, sponges, well able to absorb a rich blend of linguistic fluids. There are many much less economically developed societies than ours that take multilingualism for granted. Let Scotland also show willing.

It happened. It finally happened. I was at a very crowded Broadway lottery today wearing a small SHIELD button and when the people started to disperse the most innocent, average looking middle aged man holding hands with his wife walked past me, leaned in, and he whispered “hail hydra.”

someone in my german class had a birthday today so his friend suggested that we sing, so everyone started singing the song in german but my teacher stopped us and said that a lot of germans just sing it in english so he made us sing the song in english but with a german accent

I’m crying because that’s actually just what we do

There is a Pope in the Cars universe. This means that there is Catholic Christianity, which means there was a Jesus car who was crucified. Jesus Chrysler was crucified by car Romans under Pontiac Pilot who washed his wheels. A car was nailed to a cross and ascended to Heaven.
