But when I try to type English with the Portuguese layout a "you" becomes a "zou". What was interesting for me some days ago is that the Brazilian keyboard is different to the Portuguese one.

Re: Post an interesting fact. =)

Great thread idea, Nadine.


101. In Hong Kong, if a husband cheats on his wife, she is legally entitled to kill him, but only if she does it with her bare hands.
She can kill the mistress in any way she wants though.

I find it so annoying having to adapt to the keyboard, whenever I'm in Belgium and to make it worse the transition back to our keyboards is not always simple.
