Working with international contractors has taught me a lot of things. For instance I've learned several English words that I don't think of as related are more similar than English speakers might think.
The morning of our epic USA vs India softball game, I had a discussion with the captain of Team India about what equipment we would be using. The conversation went something like this:
Captain: What other equipment do we need?
Me: You don't absolutely need to but I'm going to wear cleats.
Other contractor overhearing the conversation: [shocked look] What? Why?
Me: They're better for running.
Captain and me: Conversation continues...
OCOTC: [Sudden look of comprehension] Oh! I thought you meant kilts.
Also "pecan" and "bacon" are not related. Even vegetarians can eat pecans.
I can neither confirm nor deny at this time whether kilts are better for running.
