there might be many positive and negative things you can say about americans. and most of all it would be bad to generalise. but... an american who understands about beer? no way!

As someone who deals with cultural barriers on a daily basis, please allow me to explain:

"Root beer" is a super sweet soft drink that foams like beer. It is non alcoholic. Scott appears to understand it.

But Americans DO understand "beer".... just as long as they've had a chance to leave the USA and drink some of the real stuff.

Scott also understands my explaination.

haha. yeah i was definitely wondering what the word root before beer could mean. but i thought it is something like hemp beer - just with roots. ok, i wanted to make a silly joke and now i'm the one looking silly :D

scott definitely understands HTML TABLE tags.
scott understands human cannon balling.
scott understands how to get new technology into his hands as test bunny (tarquin and bitpass).

He might, but I don't. Would somebody care to translate? I tried all languages options of Googles Translate but none worked :( Those damn pigeons need to expand on their language tools.

If you couldn't identify it, Russ's comic is in Esperanto. No, I haven't a clue what it says either, but I like the way it looks.

Yes, it's much easier once you know what language it's in. I had to go through it one word at a time, but I got it. :wink:
