I would like to point out the ridiculousness of Facebook to the world. I am not a big fan of Facebook or what it stands for, but I use it anyway because I'm too lazy to be anarchistic.

So now they've made the profile view all new and supposedly "simpler", you can now indicate which languages you can speak. (I'd like to point out that the Facebook "Info" section is starting to look a lot like it might be geared towards prospective employers that maybe be scouring Facebook to look at their potential employees. But that's just my opinion)

Anyway. Tony added the languages he knows how to speak to his profile. Here is what the list looks like:

Tony speaks:
> American English
> British English
> English English - this one I find most incredulous.
> Canadian English
> Caribbean English
> English

Yes, this is a joke on his part.

If anyone can clearly argue to me why these are not all the SAME LANGUAGE just different dialects, accents and variations, I'd love to hear it. Seriously I would.
