    At least

    How do people say this in Russian? E.g., "Well, at least he's not a serial killer!"

    Yes. But also comma is needed after "ну":
    "Ну, он, по крайней мере, не серийный убийца"

    You're kidding! Your Russian is too good for a person who thinks it's too hard
    P.S. "Также в русском языке..."

    I agree with that!! I think that USA does not use enough commas. It seems to me that they use more commas in Australia. I am now so confused after living in several countries that i don't have a clue who wants commas where anymore! And spelling?....Pppft!

    Commas are stolen in the USA and illegally exported to Australia. A big number of Russian commas are bootlegs as well.

    Меня в школе гоняли по пунктуации, поэтому у меня до сих пор осталось прилично знаний в этой области.

    As for English punctuation, I don't think much of it. I never paid my attention to it. I don't even know basic English punctuation rules!

    В моей школе прилично не учили нас даже английской пунктуации.
