Re: Halloween plans, what are yours?

We started work on these last weekend - finished up THIS weekend. Each proton pack took about 5 hrs of work. Mostly just cardboard, black duct tape, spray paint, wires and hose. The goggles took 4 hours total - and we could see through them. Also the traps maybe another hour or so. All told, we didn...

Re: What is the minimum words required to learn a language?

learning the complete grammar + 100 words should get you by with simple sentences. To completely transition to a single language dictionary? At least 1000.
