Who knows? Because people are fucked. That's why. I wish I could speak in another language. For one thing, being bilingual can help you get a better paying job. Bilinguals are in high demand in pretty much every occupation, and employers are willing to pay more for them in most cases. Also, it would be cool. I know a tiny bit of Spanish leftover from school and a couple of friends, but not much and they talk way too fast for me to be able to make much sense of anything they might be saying that I would be able to follow along with the conversation! I used to know more Spanish, but I never use it, so I've forgotten a lot about it.
