I was looking at the American election and I realized that all candidates have two names
Donald J. Trump
Joseph R. Biden
Michael R. Pence
Kamala D. Harris
Is this normal, do all Americans have two names?
Here in Italy someone has but the most of the people doesn't.
I specified "for non US" because they use the customary system and I knew that someone would have said something about that old fashioned and unuseful system. I think metric is the only system worth speaking about and I am really fascinated by the two different points of view, km/l or l/100km. I rep...Jump to post
To all non American people I know that in Germany people say that their car consumes 5l/100km. In Italy only a few people would say that, but we prefer 20km/l. Probably the German way is used because the number grows if the car consumes more fuel. How do people express their cars fuel consumptions i...Jump to post
Watching american movies and series, and meeting people from other countries, I noticed that usually wives commonly use their husbands surnames. In Italy it's really uncommon, in fact I don't know a single woman who uses her husband's surname. Sometimes, rarely, older women used both their original ...Jump to post

I disagree with you. Privacy is something more than hiding if I have something to hide.

I think you're right: if you want to preserve your privacy you must give up your smartphone, so yesterday I gave my S3 to a friend of mine and I resumed my old 2009 Nokia 3120 classic.

It would be a world success.
It's about a high school in Madrid and there are the stories of teachers and students. It's about tragedies, sex, drugs, very well done and when I say very well, i mean VERY well.
Astonishingly well done, from every point of view and the actors are really, really good.
I live in Italy and here the most of the people say that politicians in general, doesn't matter the party, are corrupted, only interested into their personal business. I also agree with this point of view even if I have to say that I think the party who is running Italy is the worst, ever. But this ...Jump to post

When I'm abroad I often see a lot of restaurants and shops which faking strange improbable Italian names. An Italian immediately realizes they're false, especially for foods or brands in general, but I'm always impressed.
