i swear, italian must be the most polite language on earth. they have a tense and a mood for EVERYTHING. THIS tense is for talking about things that happened last week. THAT tense is for last year. THIS one is for what you're going to do soon. THIS one is for things that you hope to do sometime in the distant future. THIS one is for showing politeness. THIS one is for giving commands. THIS one is for when you're sitting down in the evening, eating a light snack and talking about whether or not underwear should be worn outside the pants. i mean, come ON! NO ONE needs that many tenses and moods. i'm sure we could all get along fine with one past, one present, one future, and maybe one wishing-type tense. all those other ones are totally unnecessary.
