Polls closed

So the Alabama polls closed. How cool would it be if the results unexpectedly showed that it was Putin who won that race with 143 percent of the votes?

People bet on the outcome of this race a lot here today and a bunch of people are eagerly awaiting the results. Quite a bit of cash will change hands and quite a lot of people will be publicly ritually humiliating themselves here once the results are in.

What Donald Trump taught me

As you know I am not a native speaker of English and I keep learning new words and expressions all the time, it is a continuous process. Donald Trump's twitter has not been one of the sources of the undiscovered jewels of the English language for me (I learned things like "They are very very bad people" and "I am the best" a long time ago) but today he finally delivered.

The president taught me an amazing new way to say "he was an alleged pedophile" in English, which is "the deck was stacked against him". Wow, the richness of the English language just keeps amazing me. Too bad I don't expect many situations where I can show off this new expression. Actually, I take that back, it is pretty awesome that I don't.
