    I like the whole krab/ka thing- good manners seem to be lacking around the world of late. Started to take learning Myanmar a bit more seriously this year and have learned more in a week of lessons than I did last year. Compared to Thai reading and writing is considerably easier. Speaking much less so, the tones seem so more subtle to my ear for some reason.

    What an odd definition of medieval. I certainly wouldn't consider Chartres Cathedral or Geoffrey Chaucer as either undeveloped or barbaric. How sad that you are so divorced from history, lacking any cultural moorings it's no wonder you are so bitter.
    does the presence of skyscrapers in riyadh equate with saudi arabia being a modern developed society?
