heu, heu! fesso, sed debeo laboro!  
This video went viral over the summer; it was all over the news in the U.S. I believe that this was over a bill for providing health care assistance to soldiers who were in Iraq, but that's not the point. The point is that, Rep. Weiner of NY (D) went off on the Republicans, and about half the country applauded, because for once a politician said what everyone was thinking.

I thought of this when I went to look at a video of the British Parliament after we talked about their freedom of speech in British history. I'll tell you, I don't know how they get anything done at all, with everyone yelling at once like that.

That's about it, really. I was procrastinating.

(Btw, once you start learning a language it gets very fun to actually use it. Even if it's dead.)
