Born and raised for about a month in Laredo, TX. Then I was moved to Michigan. I was living in Ortonville for a good while, then my family moved to Davison, which is practically a suburb of Flint. (It borders the good side of Flint, with the colleges and planetariums and all that.) For those who don't know where Flint is, it's about an hour North-ish of Detroit.

I find it pretty amusing how people from Flint are scared of people from Detroit, and people from Detroit ('least, everyone there I talked to) are scared of people from Flint. XD

I was born in Guadalajara, Jalisco in Mexico. I lived there for just about five years, then my family came to the US. We settled down in California and I started kindergarten right away not knowing a word of English. I guess languages must be my strong point in school because I learned it right away. I was actually in a bilingual class for only the first grade but I learned English so quickly, that by the second grade they moved my to a regular class.

The sad part is, I haven't been back to Mexico for over 12 years. My entire family is there and we haven't seen them since we left all those years ago. I hate it that I don't know much about my own culture because of that. I can speak Spanish well enough, but since I don't practice writing or reading it, I'm not very fluent. I know, I know...whose fault is that? No one else but my own... :evil: Maybe I'll take Spanish in college... :? I haven't left California since we left Mexico...I always thought that was weird...everyone I know has at least been to Vagas or something...

Really? That IS weird... at least it's not a racial thing. At my school last year, a series of racial fights went down between, as the administrators called it "the latinos and the blacks". It was really, really stupid. Sheesh...can't we all just get along? Damn ignorant gangs... :x

Ah, at least there's one similar to me. I am a Pakistani, but i no speak urdu (offocial language of Pakistan) well. Mostly because i've been out of the country most of my life. And people really expects me to know it. It's not that i don't know any, but only some. And over a billion people can speak it (Urdu is 80-90% similar to Hindi, spoken in India, so anyone who can speak Hindi can diefinitely speak Urdu). Along with that, i can speak some Bahasa, which is bad, as i have lived most of my life in Indonesia. :oops:

You and i are a dying breed, Darko. Well, we're not actually, but there's not many people who can't speak their mother tongue and know english only. :lol:

lol. You're right. We're probably going to get jumped for having become "Americanized" when we return to our country of origin. I took French for 3 years in high school but there's a lot of stuff we didn't cover. My mom yelled and me and told me I should have improved my Spanish and taken it instead of French but I wanted to be introduced to a whole new language. Foreign cultures interest me a lot I guess.

True, so true. I did take a year learning Spanish, but the only thing i can say is "Yo Soy..." and "Tu Es..". And then i moved and i took a year in French. But now i can only ask "Parle vous anglais?" Looks like i'm really bad with languages. But yes, foreign cultures intrest me a lot too.

And you're right about being "Americanized". I haven't lived in America, though. I did, though, go to International and American schools in Singapore and Jakarta. And i picked up my American accent from there. So people always assume that i have grown up in America, or Canada. :roll:

Heh, yeah. It's because people from each city see the other as 'dangerous'. For example, Detroit used to (I don't know if they still do, but I know that they did) lead the country in rape and murder.

Meanwhile, in Flint, they have a rather large crime rate too, but it's mostly robbery, B&E, carjacking, and illegal drug use/sales. Hell, they didn't even have a mayor for a while! XD;

So when I go around Detroit (Mostly to Ann Arbor, really.), my friends in Flint say that I'm hardcore because it used to lead in rape and murder. Vice-versa, when I talk to my Detroit friends, they always tell me that I'm harcore because I live near a bunch of thieving crackheads, much less go to school with them. XD;;

Frankly, I'm scared of driving in both cities. Big city driving is complicated, and Flint and Detroit are by far, the worst places I've ever driven in. If I don't know where I'm going exactly, I'm hopelessly lost, and stuck in a town that scares the bajeezus outta me, no less. Not good at all. ;.;

As far as myself goes...

I live in Europe - Portugal - Minho (Province) - Braga (District) - Vila Nova de Famalic√£o (City) - Oliveira S. Mateus (Town)

It's quite peaceful when you live in a little town where nobody walks out at night, due to not have anything to do around...

I went: "Psshh...how can you live in all those places at once?! :roll: "...see what happens when you don't pay attention in Geography class!

NOTE TO SELF: Never, ever, under any circumstances go to Detroit... seriously...with my boyish face...the pedophiles would be all up on me... :(

No, I'm messing. I'm sure that's true about every big city...I don't even want to try to research how Los Angeles is. I know I don't live in LA but it's the closest BIG city around here...probably gang-related crap... :x

Hello! I was born in Oslo (Norway), but later on I`ve moved to Honefoss.
I think it is about 40 min outside Oslo, when driving a car.

I am from Manchester, England and I have lived there all my life. And for those of you who may have heard Dare by Gorrillaz with Shaun Ryder, we don't all have that awful twanging accent, I consider myself to have a nice voice, but people like Shaun Ryder and the members of Oasis give Mancunians a bad name.
