Q: What country has the largest number of English speakers in the world?

A: India. More than the US and UK combined.

-David Crystal, The Guardian

Overheard in CT #6

In a department store:
Toddler: Mommy, how much longer before we can go?
Mom: I don't know.
Toddler: Mommy, how many more things do you still need to buy?
Mom: I don't really need to buy anything.
Toddler: Then why are we here, Mommy?
Mom: Oh, just come on.

Does this mean it is ok to run over unhappy children and you can loiter before dark? Corporations should never be put in charge of making signs.

I have no idea why this guy is offended…or why this photo was in a Hardees google search…

Not sure of all the details (not even sure this isn’t a woman) but it was in England and had to do with a plan to kidnap a soldier and tape his beheading. I’m not sure if s/he is offended at that plan or the job the police were doing or both. Without knowing any of that though I like this photo (if this is a woman) looking at a woman holding a bag with a picture of a woman.
