But hey what can you expect from us retarded Russians like Uther/Livee, Cassandra, ronan etc. We hate when people say negative things about us but we LOVE LOVE LOVE going on other forums and attacking Poles, Ukrainians or any other people we Russians think its fun to hate.

That's the way we Russkies are. We hate it when you say negative things about us RuSSians, but we feel we still have the right to make ethnic slurs about other nations.

I agree but Russian is a very hard language to learn!
I suppose they don't have to be fluent?

Chinese is harder.:)
The requirements will be made by NASA itself, I don't know how tough it will be. But probably who know the language better will have better chances to fly.
