    Big Nog is a smart businness man. He invested his Pride earnings really well, fortunately. I think he also has a law degree or something, which makes Sonnen's carrot joke more hilarious.

    Southern Dialects (Tosk) also sound less manly and are more “watered down” here in Albania.

    But since the communist dictator(Enver Hoxha) was from the south , Tosk (Southern Dialect) was implemented as the base for the Standard Language by the communist regime despite the fact that the majority of Albanians were Gheg dialect speakers.

    Yep, gonna run away from Italy as soon as I can though.
    Love the place but no way in hell I'll do a psychologist work for 1500€ a month more than necessary. Thinking about Scotland as my girlfriend is going to study there, then we'll both go to Finland.

    Yes Italy's not great for salaries, especially the south....I'm from Calabria but moved to Milan to study when I was 18...I'm now 33 and kinda regret staying in this country.

    Don't get me wrong..."La bella vita" Is real and wonderful. It's a beautiful country : great food, wonderful coastline, beautiful mountains and lakes, culturally rich and eteeogeneous

    But we get paid shit and meritocracy is just a dream

    Spo shoh kurgjo per mu qudit ktu , Typical Albanian :p.

    Obviously you'd get a lot of shit (rightfully so) from other Albanians if you speak another language besides Albanian when there is no need or while you're talking to another Albanian.

    I remember that the Danish footballer Jan Molby started speaking in post match interviews with a thick scouse accent not long after signing for Liverpool in the 80's...

    That sounds exhausting. I was always a "smart kid" and went through a phase of trying to act like an intellectual. I avoided profanity, was a sesquipedalian speaker, and silently judged people who "sound dumb".

    Fast forward a few years and I started to meet a lot of really smart people who have a very blue collar vocabulary in the engineering world. I realized what a pretentious twat I had been. I can't imagine living in a culture full of people like 21 year old me.

    Interesting. As for the Shevchenko sisters, I found this one a while back , they seem pretty cool but for all I know they're talking about the best way to dispose of dead bodies.
    They seem to settle in and talk more freely around the 4 minute mark.

    I didn't know Remy interviews people. I've always thought he came off arrogant compared to other Dutch fighters (because he was the best and others hated on him/fight style), so wouldn't expect him to do something like interviewing people. (And yes I know just the Dutch accent itself can come off arrogant in English)

    But I will say, as much as I love my own looks... Remy is one of the few people I'd trade with.

    Maybe his friend meant Birmingham, Alabama, in the USA.
