Re: I did not know that blacks could tan until I was 22

Luckily, I believe that class started before I could say something embarrassing or stupid as she was the wife of a friend of mine. I had always thought that blacks were maxed out melanin wise. Also, it was common for guys (before I met my wife) to go out and enjoy the sights of girls out sunbathing....

I had a college teacher where you had to attend his bible study class to pass (engineering class in a state school). The members of his cult had to leave paper bags filled with cash on his porch and most of the other grad students were members of his cult also.

I found that most of the people in Denmark under the age of 30 not only speak English well but they also speak English with an English, Scottish, or American accent similar to someone from Minnesota.
