Stallman was giving a speech in Brazil where they
speak Portuguese. Stallman speaks English and Spanish, but not
Portuguese. The audience was asked whether they want Stallman to
present in Spanish (similar to Portuguese) or if he should present in
English. The audience originally preferred English but they over
estimated their ability to comprehend English. Part way through the
speech, the coordinator asked Stallman to switch to Spanish. Stallman
then has a meltdown as a result.
