now this is the location of Slovenia. As you can see, it is a rather small country. Mostly used language in Slovenia is, believe it or not, Slovenian, while there are minorities that speak Serbian and Croatian. Also, Italian and Hungarian are offical languages for the minorities of those respective countries.

So does your computer have a program that translates English to Slovenian?

Oh, and what does Slovenia think of America?

Really? Slovenia? That's cool. It's like, the most obscure country possible. And if that could possibly taken offensively, I appologise; it's just that, in all my years in Southern New Jersey, the following conversations have never occured:

"Hey, you kind of have an accent, did you move here from a different country?"
"Oh, yes, I'm from Slovenia."

"So I hear you have a foreign exchange student staying with you; where are they from?"
"Slovenia."

"I've got a lot of Irish and Welsh in my background, and I think I had some distant relative that was Swiss."
"I'm part Irish, part Itialian, and part Slovenian."

"Do you remember what the homework in history class was?"
"We had to answer the questions on page 233 about the political turmoil in Slovenia."

...Hah hah, Sorry, got carried away there. So what's the weather like in Slovenia? And has there ever actually been any political turmoil?

Nope, I have english version of Windows, but I've been studying English since age of 5 so I don't generally have problems with it.

Hah, the second question is kind of embarassing... The truth is, I don't think too highly of American politics, but I am not bothered with most of the people there.

Weather is nice, at the moment we are caught in a snowstorm. Coffee owns when you are watching it.

There was, in fact, a political turmoil, but that happened at the time when Slovenia got independent. We were first part of Socialistic Federative Republic of Jugoslavia (socialism was better than democracy we have now), but because of tensions between other countries (mainly between Serbian, Croatian and Bosnian) Slovenian leading politics decided to make us independent.
Of course, there was a war, but with no major casaulties and it only lasted for a week or two...

Nay, Slovenian poverty rate is still low-ish

Žužemberk is a small town in southeastern part of Slovenia. We have a great castle and even greater wine. Alas, you can find the map here:

heh, well I don't know about other people's opinions on Canada (when people talk about politics, it's either European Union, America (USA), Russia or middle east) but my opinion on Canada is pretty much neutral

well, there are no Slovenian manga artists as far as I know, but you can buy manga at certain places. The problem is there isn't a lot of high-quality manga here, mainly just Dragon Ball, One Piece and Naruto (One Piece is the best of those 3 tbh)

About the anime - well, we do have some TV stations that include anime in their program, but they mostly play Dragon Ball and Naruto (I hate those 2, actually)

One Piece = :hearts: (hence the avatar)

Heh, you've got Battle Stadium DON going on there, huh? That's basically what we've got on Toonami at this point... So how popular is anime? The way it's been in the U.S. of A, I can only assume global popularity of Japanese cartoons is increasing, but...

I don't watch the anime, I read the manga and it was great. Manga is better than anime, mainly because anime extends the story to let the manga artist write more, and I don't like that.
