    That the Aussie accent sounds like fingernails on a chalkboard is an objective fact.

    Haiti is NOT an English-speaking country (not yet).
    Its official languages are French and Creole.

    Well... Some say it very seriously, and some others... aren't that serious!

    But who are we not to trust a Sensor on a sensory sensible subject!

    True, but they sound horrible when they do speak English
    Most know how to, if i'm not entirely mistaken.

    Not at all. And yes, you're entirely mistalken.

    Most don't know at all. Do not confuse your average taxi driver with the entire Haitian population.

    The only foreign language Haitians sometimes have a little notion of is Spanish, due to close geographic ties with neighbouring Dominican Republic.

    All orchestrated music sounds the same

    all French novelists sound the same

    all figure skaters skate the same

    knitting and crochet are the same thing, blah blah blah.

    To think globally means thinking nothing.

    Yes--right on. Roof should not sound dog-like!

    Exactly! Or people who take themselves too seriously. Or are uninterested in what they purported to be interested in. Or something like that.

    Can we just be told what to vote already, please.
