    I know we're speaking more generally here, but I don't think it gets much freakier than Werner Hertzog

    We have a hutterite commune here in Waco. Supposedly they have a restaurant that is pretty awesome. I had a friend who grew up in it and then left and his parents disowned him.

  12. As a South African, I can agree. We have 11 official languages and depending on the race and region, the accents will differ greatly. Cape Town english sounds very different to Johannesburg english. Variety is the spice of life.
     
  13. People fro Michigan. I never knew how bad their accent was until I moved away and then went back to visit. Wow, that's an annoying accent. People from Cleveland have a similar accent but not as heavy as the Michigan one.

    Loooooooooooooooong ago, we had a fairly huge family reunion at my grandmother's aunt's(my great great grand aunt? or something like that...my great grandfather's sister anyway) farm in Alabama. I discovered that the Bagwells and Hendersons had spread much further afield than we'd ever suspected. At one point I had to translate English to English for some cousins. Eve was a local from the area near the farm (Glen Allen AL) the other two were from 'under the polar ice cap' or north of the Mason Dixon. I believe Ken was from Passaic NJ, and Micky was from Elyria OH. Micky wanted everyone to call him 'Mick', so of course we called him 'Mouse'.


    One would say something and the other two would say "What was that?" and I'd repeat whatever that statement was. Then one of the others would reply to the statement I'd repeated and the other two would say "Huh?" and I'd repeat that statement and on and on and on...I talked a lot and don't think I said a single thing of my own. I was too busy telling them what the others had said.
     
  15. I read Charlize Theron has a South African accent but when intervued in the US she does an "American" accent. I would love to hear her S.A. accent. She's awesome!

    Here she says here name. It's pretty cool.

    Hardcore Irish girls have always sounded very alien to me.
