Het is een wonder! Moeder (normaal geschikt voor het poetsen) blijkt ook moordzaken te kunnen oplossen! En dat met twee werkende eierstokken!

THIS WAS FUN.
Pretty cool to see which the English word comes from. xD
(The latin has a high possibility of being in the wrong form, my apologies.
I didn’t include articles/genders/plurals etc. in the languages because I wanted it more as a comparison than a vocab list.)

Welcome to England where we fucking hate young people
Dear England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Fuck you. Love Scotland
Before all the cool kids express their outrage, in those Scandinavian countries university is not free, you pay extra taxes because you went to university.
This sounded foreign to me so I went downstairs to check with dad just in case and no, we don’t? I don’t know if it’s different in Norway or Denmark or Finland but in Sweden you do not pay extra taxes for going to university.
(we do, though, have pretty high taxes to begin with, but you know. that’s the price of free education. But hey, on the upside, not only do you not pay extra taxes, you also recieve a small amount of money each month for being a student, just to help you get by. It’s pretty nice.)
And then the US where we pay $50,000 a year.
