Subject: Changes to Amazon TOS
So far I've received two notifications of changes. France and UK.

No I haven't scrolled all the way down in Mailwasher. Just talk among yourselves while I check.

Nope nothing else yet. Here's the scoop. UK version [I'll leave the French version out because certain smart alecs here can read it without resorting to childish High School French and make utter fools of themselves like me].

Especially when you have an Australian accent. A real world joke I must pass along to you first.

An infantry mate of mine from the mid 1960's whom the Army taught French, Indonesian, Malay and Vietnamese.

About my age, he somehow finagles a free trip to Paris where he meets and converses with many people. This is a true story.

Ultimately he encounters this gorgeous Vietnamese bird at a party, likely from North Vietnam. Obviously his brains tell him to keep a respectful distance [for security reasons].

Later that night, she approaches him and tells him in the traditional Asian way:

"You funny you" in English.

He replies in fluent Vietnamese: "Why is that?"

She replies in Vietnamese: "Because you speak very good Vietnamese. But with an Australian accent"

OK. It was really funny at the time. Back to Amazon, here's the guts of it:
