Epic movies, like brokeback mountain, are seldom found in the industry or worthy for the mainstream viewer. As often as I have watched the clips of this movie, I always find something more to it. For one, the gay stuff doesn't enter the picture for me, only the dimension of the highest love I have ever witnessed in life or on film.

When sober, my English is on the level of Samanosuke, when drunk, I am more eloquent than Masterclass.

In between fluently and competently if we have a conversation, but when I have to write something, my english became very poor and basic, as you can note.

I'd say fluently. I've read books in English since 11 (Harry Potter ), though I've never lived in any English-speaking country so anyone can tell that I'm not native by the way I speak. I also study in English.

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.
Somewhere out there, there is a homeless person who once took betting advice from GSMnadal
