English vs Eskimo-Aleut

English has more words for snow than the Inuits. Who knew?

I scored as good with Islam+Paganism (6/7) as JudeoChristianity (6/7).

English also has an unusually high number of expressions for drunkenness. Its far more nuanced regarding that subject than the sloppiness of Spanish & Portuguese, "Borracho".
