Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well, I hate to say this, but maybe the 3rd talk I gave in front of a really large audience was to a crowd that didn't speak Engish, (bahasa in  this case).  and I was more than a little nervous, and just rattled on, when luckily for me the interpretter came up to me, caught my attention, and explained that she couldn't interpret unless I paused.  <red faced, felt like a total idiot>, but I don't have a huge ego, the interretter was great, the crowd caught on and laughed, and I did too.  From then on I talked, paused, and it was fine.  From then on I learned a few phrases to help with the crowd.

I didn't read everything you wrote about sharon stone.  and maybe she had no respect for her audience.  but actually I did, have a ton of respect for my audience, but just had messed up.  But I visited this plant often, and somehow they knew I meant no disrespect.  I had a wonderful three years with that group.  I know there are big ego people that screw that up and dont' care, but there are also normal people like you and I that mess up, and hopefully it gets covered, by us, or for us.
