South Africa was once part of the Empire, as was Australia. There was also this large body of land on the other side of the pond, but we won’t discuss thatFebruary 24, 2009 9:18 pm at 9:18 pm #677107
areivim, i think in south africa that’s their way of saying “goodbye” or ending a conversation 😉
moderator??February 24, 2009 9:19 pm at 9:19 pm #677108
How could it be the “leader of the free world” started out by dumping tea in a river?February 24, 2009 9:19 pm at 9:19 pm #677109
39, see one of the (few) threads I started. I’m sure you’ll know which one I mean and you will enjoy it.February 24, 2009 9:20 pm at 9:20 pm #677110

moish- i was doing a play on wordsFebruary 24, 2009 9:23 pm at 9:23 pm #677114charlie brownMember
are you a member of the royal family yearning for the glory days gone by? In case nobody had the heart to tell you, you folks lost the war to the tea throwing gorillas in the colonies. Sorry to bring you bad news, sir.February 24, 2009 9:26 pm at 9:26 pm #677115
Saw it in 2000 squeak. But the only thing that was left out was that Election Day will be renamed Indecisive DayFebruary 24, 2009 9:27 pm at 9:27 pm #677116
Har har. I saw it in 1960 too.February 24, 2009 9:28 pm at 9:28 pm #677117
squeak! I finally understand why I can’t get enough of your humor- it’s so very properly English!
ahhhh- now things are beginning to fall into place…February 24, 2009 9:28 pm at 9:28 pm #677118
oh my bad. (do i say that often? i never noticed till my friend said something last night)February 24, 2009 9:31 pm at 9:31 pm #677119
Did think it was funny that all you Whiny American were complaining about the price of Petrol (gas), We pay close to a bloody $5.50 a gallon (99 pence per litre)February 24, 2009 9:32 pm at 9:32 pm #677120
39, see my posts on the main site about that. I actually get pretty annoyed at the blokes who keep posting that like it means something. Don’t any of you even know WHY your petrol prices are jacked up?February 24, 2009 9:35 pm at 9:35 pm #677121
blokes!!! love it- my new fav word. wonder what my friends’ll think…February 24, 2009 9:35 pm at 9:35 pm #677122
1) Bloody Taxes
2) We have no oil. Denmark is the envy of Europe, they are the only European Country which EXPORTS oil.February 24, 2009 9:35 pm at 9:35 pm #677123
39, nice try.
squeak is trying to convince me he’s my zeidy’s age…
sounds like someone didn’t Mind the Gap

well u c/d take the bus for 1/10th of the price here!February 24, 2009 9:40 pm at 9:40 pm #677125
no, 39. Ever heard of the North Sea? Brent crude? What’s that – chopped liver????
Your prices are high because you socialists decided to create a disincentive to buy petrol. It ain’t for the purpose of taxation (though that’s where the money goes). It’s because they want you to use less (read, none) petrol. But WE live in a free country. Blimey.
You can always move here (there seems to be a high demand for Britishers in jobs where that cuuute accent can be heard – e.g. secretary, newscaster, etc). But you’d have to leave your NHS behind. So sorry.February 24, 2009 9:40 pm at 9:40 pm #677126
by the wat, there’s no way you’re english, 39. “bloody” is a swear word in the UK and would never pas in the heilegeh coffeeroom. nice try. now go edit those posts 😉
Blimy, I though I’d get away with it amongst present company.
Won’t edit. Can’t be botheredFebruary 24, 2009 9:42 pm at 9:42 pm #677127
I know what mind the gap is, but…. shaychus???
Is there such a thing as British humor?February 24, 2009 9:45 pm at 9:45 pm #677128
good point moish, never mind that 99p per liter is wayy more than $5.50 per gallon.
Do the maths (haha) – .99 x 4 = 4 pounds per gallon (roughly 4 liters in a gallon, it’s actually a bit more. Canadia has roughly 5 “royal” litres per gallon)
4 pounds in the summer were roughly $8.
Anyway, I think that the petrol prices were over 99p this summer.February 24, 2009 9:45 pm at 9:45 pm #677129
British humour. did not expect you to get itFebruary 24, 2009 9:47 pm at 9:47 pm #677130
Firstly, 3.8 litres = 1 gallon
Secondly, it isn’t the summer. The Pound has fallen to 1.447February 24, 2009 9:48 pm at 9:48 pm #677131
that PROVES you ain’t british! You would not be allowed to say “the pound has fallen”.
Why not? The UK isn’t Iran. What do you recommend I say?
YW Moderator-39February 24, 2009 9:54 pm at 9:54 pm #677133
mod39: you should say the dollar has risen 😛February 24, 2009 9:56 pm at 9:56 pm #677134
teen- halevei!February 24, 2009 9:57 pm at 9:57 pm #677135
teen, that would not be accurate. Look at the Pound via-a-vis the dollar. vis-a-vis the Euro, vis-a-vis the shequel, vis-a-vis the Canadian Dollar and you’ll see that, in fact, the Pound has, unfortunately, decreased in value.
Typical Americans, think everything only revolve around themselves, or their currencyFebruary 24, 2009 9:57 pm at 9:57 pm #677136
no, he should say “By comparison to the stable Pound, the value of foreign currencies is fluctuating wildly up and down. Currently, the American dollar has become worth as much as 69p, rising from 50p this summer”.February 24, 2009 9:58 pm at 9:58 pm #677137
squeak, which issue of “The Economist” did you copy and paste that from?February 24, 2009 10:00 pm at 10:00 pm #677138
I’m flattered. You must get to know me better, honourable sir.
I just received an e-mail where the sender spoke in the same manner
He is the exiled Prince of Nigeria, and he requested my assistance in transferring his 18000000USD to his new bank account
YW Moderator-39February 24, 2009 10:01 pm at 10:01 pm #677139
ok mod39 how about in comparison to the pound, the dollar has risen 😛
and who said i was talking about the american dollar? perhaps i was talking about the canadian one!
mod39 are you even really from the UK?February 24, 2009 10:01 pm at 10:01 pm #677140
Now do you realize why I can’t stay away from this place?February 24, 2009 10:06 pm at 10:06 pm #677141
teen- are YOU from the UK?? and here we thought most if the members were from good ol brooklynFebruary 24, 2009 10:11 pm at 10:11 pm #677143
by the way i think he’s from LA. because the other night when he stayed up he said “i did my first all-nighter“
if he was really in europe he wouldn’t have called it night.
this post is on the bottom of the page and no one’s gonna notice my detective work 🙁February 24, 2009 10:14 pm at 10:14 pm #677145
teen- blow me awayFebruary 24, 2009 10:17 pm at 10:17 pm #677146
moish01: whats so funny about it? and im feeling great 🙂
arievim: what?February 24, 2009 11:02 pm at 11:02 pm #677147
nothing. just always imagined you lived around here. anyway, lakewood is so yeshivish i would die if i had to live there.February 24, 2009 11:06 pm at 11:06 pm #677148
teen- I meant what moish expressed “teen, NO WAY! lakewood?”February 24, 2009 11:16 pm at 11:16 pm #677149
areivim, conveniently ignoring any questions you don’t wanna answer? you’re worse than i am. at least i say “i don’t wanna answer…”February 24, 2009 11:21 pm at 11:21 pm #677150
hey you know what’s so weird? how you can have a full five different conversations with different people at the same time? and you know what’s even weirder? when you have five different conversations with the same guy! i’m usually not the biggest talker. don’t know why i talk so much on here. strange.
