Martin, I can't speak for your spoken English but your written English is the most idiomatically correct I've ever seen for a nonative speaker.  If you pulled 10 random FOTs and had me guess the ESL one, I'd never pick you out.
I really don't appreciate your sarcastic, anti-comedy tone, Bro!

Yes, I've been meaning to comment on that for ages.

See, now you ruined it.  Swedish politeness shines through.

I find that Scandinavians or Germans who speak very good English sound as if they're from some lost and distant, alternate universe county of England. More comprehensible to me than your average Glaswegian or Alabama governor.

Yeah. For an example, track down a clip of the master, Werner Herzog.

The Dutch shine here as well.

Alabama's taking it in the chin in The FOT forum.  It's like True Romance and the collective FOT are Gary Oldman.
