PG's problem understanding founders with accents, if he indeed has one, is causing waves on the Internets.

From personal experience, decoding spoken accents may be a skill in itself, a separate process in the brain. At 17 I was one of 250 kids from dozens of countries that toured the US for six weeks and remember how understanding each other was not just a question of English, we all spoke it fluently having just spent a year at US highschools or colleges, but also of being able to get past each other's accents. Easy for some, impossible for others, sometimes influenced by how tired people where.

Communication isn't as simple as it looks.
