With the wide-arrangement of cultures and languages, that would be an excellent fit as well.
As I saw the creature, I was as white as an egg. I was so scared I might crack from fear. As the humanoid began to lunge after me, I was walking on egg shells from how scared I was. It grabbed me, took me to its station, and cracked me open. The last thing I saw were my yellow insides cooked on a pan. Human nature is as evil as a rotten egg.

Do you know much of any other languages? You're Latino right? Or are you one of those third generation kids that don't know the language?

I think I remember him busting out some Spanish previously.
"Suddenly Frodo noticed that a strange-looking weather-beaten man, sitting in the shadows near the wall, was also listening intently to the hobbit-talk. He had a tall tankard in front of him, and was smoking a long-stemmed pipe curiously carved. His legs were stretched out before him, showing high boots of supple leather that fitted him well, but had seen much wear and were now caked with mud. A travel-stained cloak of heavy dark-green cloth was drawn close about him, and in spite of the heat of the room he wore a hood that overshadowed his face; but the gleam of his eyes could be seen as he watched the hobbits."

I'm 2nd generation, so I'm some-what fluent in Spanish. Most of the learning took place at home, some in a class I took. Still, I'm wondering how I got a C in my Spanish class...
Oh well.
Languages I know: English, Spanish, Japanese (that's right (well, not fluently. Still learning.)).
Anyone care to pitch in on their languages?

So basically you know how to speak it in conversation form but not write it? I was just practicing my German though. A language only sticks if you force yourself to use it though. I could go the rest of my life using English as my only language with no problem. Though there seems to be an abnormally high amount of Germans at my university. I knew some Spanish once but have forgotten practically everything but how to count.

Pretty much, yeah.
I mean, I know how to speak, read, and sort-of write it. What gets me in the writing part is those damn accents.

I haven't listened to P!atD in what feels like eons, god... It's a real nostalgia trip.

And I saw them headlining at the 30STM concert recently. Honestly, only knew two songs from them.

I've seen this guy do a live stream on a speed-run of Wind Waker. It's pretty impressive, if you ask me.

Death -> metabolic system stops -> Adenosine Triphosphate is no longer produced -> muscle work cannot be sustained due to lack of ATP -> rigor mortis -> complete lack of mobility.

Didn't see it yet, just guessing.

Nothing silly about seeing the dreams people have about a zombie apocalypse happening crushed to the ground.

That wasn't the point of the special. They tested various survival techniques.
