It seems to be a universal fascination when meeting foreigners to want to hear them saying something in their own language.

Which is weird, because in most cases where this happens by request, the listener doesn't understand a word of what was said. I guess human beings must have a liking for being completely in the dark.

2023-10-08 Rerun commentary: This is the real reason why we don't have any proof of aliens visiting Earth yet. It's because the secretive government agencies investigating them haven't deciphered their language yet, and they're too embarrassed to tell anyone about it.
