Try to translate something in it. Only thing you will get is english all wrotten on cyrillic.
Like:
English -> Serbian
You're talking to me? -> Јоу'ре талкинг то ме?
Or even Serbo-German Google Translate...
Really, 13mil people could not have basic translation to international languages...
Through there is more than 13 million. Right calculation would be:
Population of Serbia + Serbs in Germany, Austria and America and Norway + ( Population of Macedonia / 2) + Population of Bosnia + (Population of Croatia/2) which is basically = 20 million.

I feel it strange that no editor bothered to create a translator. Btw when I tried I got "причаш са мном" ,is it badly translated ?

Standard practice is to convert one way, then convert back and compare to the original:
    You're talking to me?
    Причаш са мном?
    Are you talking to me?

That seems fine to me. Another:
    That seems fine to me.
    То изгледа добро за мене.
    It looks good to me.


Cheers,

Brendan

Google Translate gives me the following for Serbian:-

You're talking go me? --> Причаш са мном?
Are you talking to me? --> да ли се мени обраћаш?
Are you sure you're using Google Translate correctly --> Да ли сте сигурни да користите гоогле транслате исправно?

I'm not sure whether you've been told yet but your English is far from perfect. My advice is for you to improve your own English and if you succeed there you might then help others.

I was a great fan of the physicist Richard Feynman and he published a few autobiographical stories about his comings and goings.

One time he was in some country as an educational advisor and he was given a tour of this and that. On the last day he was taken to a hall where students were to be asked questions by him; so as to demonstrate the superiority of the educational system he had just toured.

When asked for planks constant - bam - got it right
When asked the formula for this or that - bam got it right

But then Feynman stopped reading the list of questions and started asking his own questions...

Why is this this way... For this example what is that and why... etc...

What the educators found out via a few pointed questions was that the students had learned the textbooks front to back and could recite any definition within - but had absolutely no problem solving skills nor the ability to apply the knowledge they had memorized.

To be fair, were I in a Bangkok hospital and my balls were dropped on the floor, I wouldn't be inclined to pick them up again. I am pretty sure that would be the whole point of the trip, really.

And no, I don't have anything like that planned. Not yet, at any rate. It's a possibility for the future, though.

It's not possible. Try it again. If it is like you quouted, then they recently put some effort! WOW!

Through, my calculation of real Serb population is wrong, sorry, it is like this:
Population of Serbia + Serbs in Germany, Austria and America and Norway + ( Population of Macedonia / 2) + Population of Bosnia + (Population of Croatia/2) + Serbs in Montenegro + Albania / 4 = 21,2 million.
Really, Montenegro is totally Serbian since it follows Serbian Orthodox church, it was Serbian for a certain amount of time and their primary language is Serbian. Bosnia is all Serbian except the western parts which have been muslimized by Ottomans.
Albania followed orthodox church until muslimization by Ottomans.

If they need any spare masculinity, they can have mine. I'm not intending to use it anymore.
