I'm pretty sure this has been said (yes I read the whole thread) but when you're afraid to let your friends see your iPod because of all the foreign language stuff on it. And when putting your ipod on shuffle results in the following:
Song-Pimsleur-Song-Song-Assimil-Berlitz-Pimsleur-Song

...when you set your iPod on a foreign language to prevent others from using it. Chinese is particularly effective.

When you discover that a movie in your target language will be shown on your TV movie channel.You record it, so you can replay parts that you don't get right away, as well as to rehear the parts you do understand. You settle down and get comfortable, the excitement is building as it begins to play and then-bummer! It has been dubbed into English :-(

...when you refuse to watch a movie in anything but the original language it was made in;
even if you don't speak it...
...when watching a dubbed film is registered in your mind as "ruining a movie" and it
makes you a bit moody for the rest of the day.

Sometimes I do the opposite too. If I only want a short explanation of a subject and the Wikipedia article I'm looking at is long and meandering, I'll search through the other language versions I can understand for a short and concise article on the subject.
