Re: Why Brits are better than Yanks

Spelling, it's humour Nope I will not cede that one, although my spelling can be awful at times. Humor and humour are different spellings of the same word. Humor is preferred in American English, and humour is preferred in Olde England. At least we put in articles to define our sentence structure. ...

Re: Why Brits are better than Yanks

The pleurae are the two constituent sheets of the pleura. So, there. Sarcasm and irony I might have given to you, but even Ben Franklin had his moments and need I add Samuel Clemens or H. L." Mencken? Present day, Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert. On Wickapedia you have 23 pages in this category, ...

Re: Why Brits are better than Yanks

And the correct pleural of octopus is either octopuses or octopodes - not octopi Octopi moves me octopodes belongs beneath the cover of some pendantic book. Octopuses reminds me of Pussy Galore. Color (colour) my ink purple I will keep my plural as is and what the heck is "pleural?" Anyho...

Re: Why Brits are better than Yanks

The naval rum ration was cut down at several points over the years before being abolished in 1970. Incidentally, that watering down and adding lime juice is what gave us the nickname Limeys (only among Americans though, the French call us Rosbifs and the Germans Tommys). Still, it helped preserve t...

Re: Why Brits are better than Yanks

sassenachs Now that term I can understand. I think it even evolved from 'Saxon' - anyhow it seems to refer to protestant English of even low-land Scots. Rosbifs I had never heard before. 'the roast beefs'? Anyhow no more offensive than 'Frogs.' the world is full of national and racial insults based...

Re: Why Brits are better than Yanks

HALP -- This Yank feels like he's been Limeyed *** The fact you have to ask if we've tasted 'Oregon or Washington'm beers is particularly telling, have you tried London stouts or Somerset ciders or Burton-upon-Trent bitters? For gosh sakes I would never defend the Bud or Coor or the many worse beers...

Re: Why Brits are better than Yanks

Brit beer IMHO is far superior to most US beers. Most commercially made American beers are a little like making love in a canoe Cardinal Fang, with due respect have you tried some good Oregon and Washington brews? Never thought about the latter part of your quote but it is more possible than in a k...

Re: Why Brits are better than Yanks

As my Dad once told me: 'The difference between the Americans and the Brits is that Americans think 200 years is a long time, but the Brits think 200 miles is a long way' Too true What you Europeans fail to understand is that 'History' is old and irrelevant. Who needs to know what happened over 300...

Re: The Three Items Game

I have been out door belling for candidates for our up-coming election. Finding out what my neighbors value or believe in has made me re-affirm my hermit like existence. Gun issues are a big thing, so is Ebola and the Doomsdayer's are really out there. Guns, ammo and maybe even more gold, and I'll s...

Re: The Student and the Master

Loved it. Great post. As I am in the middle of door belling for political candidates, I wish I had such a Masters demeanor. Worse yet, I am not used to the change of weather. My slickers and rain gear are now very much needed. Swabbing decks in sunshine is one thing, doing it in rain or hail is anot...

What the heck is that. Needs a descriptive, or perhaps not. An oyster mixed in with a blood clot?

Re: What are you EATING right now?

I think more of us should be aware as to animals are treated, before being marketed as farm fresh, safe and all that. I found this video to be very interesting ... stick with it until the end and watch the faces of the audience. http://www.upworthy.com/no-one-applauds-this-woman-because-theyre-too-c...

WOW, I am so impressed! No deer, no varmits? If so the gopher will come and visit soon. Your address is where? Nice pictures. The peppers were awesome, so I gather you are in one of the Southern States. http://www.venganza.org/forum/images/smilies/worship.gif will try again! http://www.olypen.com/bo...
