Like when I listened to the speech by the Icelandic prime minister where he acknowledged that the economy of his country had literally collapsed overnight. Except that I didn't understand everything he said.

...when your friend, upon hearing that you study languages, says "I can hook you up with a copy of Rosetta Stone" and then doesn't understand why you explode in rage at their generous offer.

...when a member on another forum recommends Rosette Stone to someone who wants to learn a language and you immediately pipe up to say Rosette Stone sucks and they should go for Pimsleur, Michel Tomas or Assimil instead.

...when you've never even used Rosette Stone but have spent so much time on this forum that you can explain its many shortcomings in detail anyway.

I did the same thing to my Japanese teacher when he asked about my independent language-learning strategies, and asked if I used Rosetta Stone.

You watch so much Lost dubbed into Arabic that you forget the actors don't speak it!

(Ironic when the actor who plays Sayyid doesn't even speak Arabic, haha. Much better when he is dubbed into Iraqi dialect!)

When you are so excited that university Christmas break has finally arrived, and while
your friends from school are at the bar and offering to pay for your night if you come
out, and your extremely attractive girlfriend is at a party, and furthermore you were
invited to both, you choose instead to spend Saturday night working on grammar until
early into the morning.

I think it's a forum rule that this type of bragging is not allowed without pictures.
