    Wow! You are so energetic!!! (why don't we have smile "love" here??? )
    So, a foreigner can be true, but not complete, can't he?

    twostep,

    I think I can devide strangers into two groups: 1) people I'm surely not acquainted with, 2) people I douted about. I mean I might have met them long ago, but I'm not sure about this fact.

    So, when I meet a person from the first group, he is a total stranger to me!!! Isn't that right?

    And do we know anything about newcomer? Can I say a true newcomer and a complete newcomer ?
