I was thinking about something....and I was wondering if the language that other people see in other countries is English or their own language that's in their country. So if you are in another country that's not America or England or Australia or Canada or something, what language would you be reading this in? I'm talking about just this site only. If it's not english, how do the computers translate it into the language you know? That was my dumb question ↑ Not this↓ Just clarifying. What do you think about turkey? Turkey for Easter dinner. Cuz that's what I will be eating. Not ham.
