re: What are some of your favorite non-United States national songs? - TNVolinSpain
La Marseillaise is probably my favorite. Anytime I translate it for any of my friends they can't believe what it means. I'm also a big fan of the German National Anthem too....

re: Pam Beesly or Karen Filippelli? - TNVolinSpain
In college, I got to intern with the US State Department and I worked at the US Mission to the OECD. Anyway, my boss, the ambassador to the OECD, was Karen Kornbluh (also known as the Obama brain). She had all the staff over at her place for a party. I got to meet her husband. He introduced himself ...

re: Will Scotland's Vote Today Have A Trickle Down Effect In Other Areas? - TNVolinSpain
I think it was week ago that Barcelona had a 1.8 million people march crying for independence, with a vote on independence planed for November. Spain said they wouldn't approve of any vote without the whole country getting to vote on Catalonia's fate. Otherwise, the Spanish government has said they ...

re: Will Scotland's Vote Today Have A Trickle Down Effect In Other Areas? - TNVolinSpain
Spain stated yesterday that they will block with the full force of the Spanish government any vote for independence, but I'm quite sure Catalonia will go ahead with the vote anyway. I wonder how that would work with the Catalans and Basques on the French side of the border though if such a vote were...

re: Joe Biden refers to Asia as "The Orient", and weak people are outraged - TNVolinSpain
I've never had a problem with it. My mom is from the Philippines and refers to Asians as Oriental all the time, and has never had a problem with anyone saying it to her. She's more offended when people call her Mexican. ...

re: Rosetta Stone commitment challenge - TNVolinSpain
I honestly tried Rosetta Stone before I learned Spanish (got them free from a friend). I didn't find it helpful, especially when I tried the Arabic and Chinese versions. I learned Spanish better just by going to Mexican restaurants and forcing myself to speak with my Mexican servers. I encourage you...

re: Most dangerous place you have been to - TNVolinSpain
Manila and Angeles City and Muslims? While I'm sure there are some muslims, Manila and Angeles City are two very Catholic cities. In fact, I've never really seen any Muslims in either city. Southern Philippines is a different story. I'm half Filipino, and my cousins even say that probably wouldn...

re: Why has futbol Americano never taken off overseas? - TNVolinSpain
A lot of my European and Latin American friends always cite there being way too many rules which makes it really difficult to understand. ...

re: Count of Monte Cristo was underrated. - TNVolinSpain
It really was a good movie and then I read the book about two years ago, and kind of ruined the movie for me. I didn't think the book could really be that much better than the movie, but it really exceeded expectations. A true master piece. That said, still a solid movie and I do enjoy watching it w...

re: How many passport stamps do you have? - TNVolinSpain
I have 33 stamps, but a lot of them are due to multiple entries in France and Spain when I travel to Europe. As to where I've been: Argentina Belgium Belize Brazil England France Ireland Italy Austria Germany Sweden Honduras Mexico Uruguay Brazil Portugal Spain Morocco Canada ...

re: 8 Disgusting Things People Eat Around the World - TNVolinSpain
As soon as I saw this thread, I thought about balut. I've actually tried it before (my mom is from the Philippines), and it's honestly not that bad. I remember my mom and her Filipino friends couldn't believe my American friends and I actually ate it (most had never eaten it). It really tastes like ...

re: Is White Collar any good? - TNVolinSpain
I don't think it's actually been confirmed by USA that it's the last season, but all signs are pointing to it being the last season since season six will only be six episodes because USA doesn't think the show is worth the costs....

re: Court rules against American Flag on Cinco de Mayo, says too threatening - TNVolinSpain
I don't even see why the Mexicans here even care? I mean it's not like it's celebrated outside of the state of Puebla, Mexico and the United States. It's not even Mexican Independence. I understand why the courts ruled the way they did, but it should have also prohibited the Mexican flag that day as...

re: House of Cards Season 2 Discussion Thread (SPOILERS) - TNVolinSpain
I just finished the season. I really liked it. It was very solid; however, I still favor the first season more. I liked the individual story lines in the first season and felt like it concentrated more on Frank (granted he is the star of the show) and I hated how the CWI Law Suit was just swept unde...
