    How did you do that?

    My parents were friends with headmaster

    That didn't stop me failing from math and science lessons though

    I always skipped PE too. Much easier to do when you're a girl.

    How did you do that?

    I just used to show absolutely zero interest and often they'd let me go and sit under a tree or something instead of actively participating. No one ever wanted me on their team as I couldn't even catch a ball, and my hand-eye coordination was atrocious. When it came to Cross Country running, I'd tell them my asthma was worse than it was, and they'd let me walk a short cut instead.

    I used to swim regularly outside of school, so I don't think my fitness suffered from my lack of participation. I just found the whole thing incredibly tedious and genuinely felt my time would have been better spent in the library.

    Imagine Dragons do not hate gay people :-?
    They are hardcore right wingers though and 9 out of 10 times that includes being homophobic. The lead singer has talked about his conservative values and upbringing in interviews and it does come off that he is behind the times with that.

    Twenty one Pilots may have tried to "redeem" themselves for their tweet about Orlando, but most of us remember their silence when same sex marriage was legalized because "we're a Christian band and we don't agree with it". Which is funny because probably 90-95% of the genre leans to the left yet the only ones that get any mainstream attention in the states are the conservative acts.

    Haha I never knew it was such a big deal until now tbh.

    I think it helps that Spanish is pronounced pretty much how it's written, whereas English has a whole mind of its own. If I was reading Colombia in Spanish, I'd naturally pronounce it differently tbh.

    In English, Colombia / Columbia comes from Christopher Columbus. In Spanish it's Cristˇbal Colˇn. It's not hard to see how the two names have diverged from their etymology, hence the Colombia / Columbia issue.
    Yeah I know, for my whole life I've seen how people from English-speaking places screw the Colombia name, even on TV and everything. I quite feel bad for Colombians, no one seems to get their country name right, and I know that upsets them

    Colombia is even pronounced like it has a u in it with some accents.
    Nope, it isn't. Well at least not here in Latin America.

    I hated PE so much at school.

    I remember standing on a muddy field in the depths of winter freezing my knackers off "playing" Rugby, and thinking how unfair it was that the girls got to do Dance and Ballet indoors. :evil:

    Looking back though, it was so sexist. Boys: football, rugby, cricket, rounders, hockey, tennis vs. Girls: dance, netball, volleyball, and all the easy stuff. The girls actually started a petition to be allowed to play rugby (no idea what they'd been smoking...) but were told they couldn't as it was "too dangerous". I'd have happily swapped.

    Pretty much, Rounders is just like a very basic version

    It must be easier because the boys got to play baseball whereas the girls always had to play rounders

    i dont even have the least idea wth is going on in these sports. they really are non-existing in most of the Europe. Baseball doesn't sound look like fun watching it, there's not much going on and not at the fast pace, right? Nothing beats the football, though. THE most boring sport ever, like djfnlmkkbnjmbjhlbn÷oljbhvlu,cfvnckl what the fck was wrong with people to ever start following that shit? :-? :-?
    agree, like there are so many breaks and you don't even get what's going on, only thing interesting about is the half-time show in the finals

    It's about Colombia having variations in name across the languages. Liek in German, it's also KolUmbija in Serbian. Our Spanish proffesor had a hard time making us get used to O in Colombia.
    No I was responding to a post which has now been deleted
