Default not popular? get an accent

ever notice how comedians are far more funny if they have a foreign slang to their english?

ever notice how certain teachers seem more wise than they would otherwise be, but it is only because they talk slower and have an accent?


whats up with that?!

I had an old Polish teacher for my College Physics class. He had a pretty badass accent.



Best day EVER was when he sucked the helium out of a balloon

My first Calculus class in college had an Indian instructor. Learning to understand her has helped me to understand when I have to call a help center.

The class was back in 1989, who know that it would foreshadow the future.
