    When Colonel Klink rolls in wearing a blue helmet, I will play dumb....:sneaky:

    It could be helpful when listening on the radios if we were ever in an "occupied" state of UN control after a collapse. [angelsad]

    I have a video iPod set up with 100s of survival videos courtesy of Bear.
    I also included the complete Pimsleur set of Spanish. You can find language CDs at the library. I rip them.

    Good idea and I was thinking the same way. Spanish is more than likely the first we will need. At least learn how to say "The pretty girls carrying Ganga ran that way."

    My wife teaches sign language. She has been teaching me and some of my friends signs that we can use to communicate silently. Her and my daughter communicate across the room.
    I can see where it would be a very useful skill to have.

    My daughter is a medical assistant and Phelobotomist for a group of doctors who are paying for her college level spanish classes. None of the 4 doctors in the practice speak the language and they are getting more and more spanish speaking patients

    My spanish is rather broken, not that great and kindof rusty by have had enouph jobs where it was the language spoken by most or all of my co-workers that I have learned enouph that if they speak as much English as I do Spanish then we can generaly comunicate fairly well. I definatly know enouph to get slaped, something to drink and to tell someone off even if they only speak spanish. lol Then I also speak a VERY little bit of German, French, Latin, Lakota (almost exclusively woman speak since the males and females each have their own distinctive dialects but a few words/phrases of man speak as well), and Cherokee.
