Hey, I know it's completely off topic, but what would be the probability that if I type some random sequence of letters, it will have some meaning in English?
Close to zero, because only 5 vowels (about 20% of the letters) are used almost 40% of the time
Grunting worked before .....
Hit the woman on her head and take her home.
If we talked french we never get what we wanted anyway. Or is that...

Why isn't the forum in Mandarin, then?
cause chess.coms owner speaks primarily english. As for why its most spoken look it up it should be obvious since china holds more people than america and all other primary english speaking countries.
China holds more people, but not all of them speak Mandarin. More people around the world are conversant in English than are conversant in Mandarin, especially among chessplayers.
Its there primary language so yes ALL of them do. That may not be the only language but it is the norm over there
yep the guy who made the internet speaks primarily english to.
nature has once some one learns to speak English after their mother tongue that many of us don't bother to learn a third language!
LET ME TAKE THE OCCASSION THAT I HAVE A DESIRE TO JOIN A TEAM THAT TEACHES A LANGUAGE OTHER THAN ENGLISH ESPECIALLY GREETING PHRASES PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU CAN OFFER THIS! :0-)

Even slang words sound better in English.
Talking English in English leads to longer conversations.
The Blues sound better in English.
