    I expect a 10% cut. Like if they give you 2 donuts I expect a fifth of a donut.

    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 that

    areivim, i think in south africa that’s their way of saying “goodbye” or ending a conversation 😉

    moderator??

    How could it be the “leader of the free world” started out by dumping tea in a river?

    39, see one of the (few) threads I started. I’m sure you’ll know which one I mean and you will enjoy it.

    mod39,

    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.

    Saw it in 2000 squeak. But the only thing that was left out was that Election Day will be renamed Indecisive Day

    oh my bad. (do i say that often? i never noticed till my friend said something last night)

    #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)

    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?

    blokes!!! love it- my new fav word. wonder what my friends’ll think…

    1) Bloody Taxes

    2) We have no oil. Denmark is the envy of Europe, they are the only European Country which EXPORTS oil.

    well u c/d take the bus for 1/10th of the price here!

    #677125

    squeak
    Participant

    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.

    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 bothered

    I know what mind the gap is, but…. shaychus???

    Is there such a thing as British humor?

    #677128

    squeak
    Participant

    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.

    #677129

    British humour. did not expect you to get it

    #677130

    Firstly, 3.8 litres = 1 gallon

    Secondly, it isn’t the summer. The Pound has fallen to 1.447

    #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?

    teen- halevei!

    #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 currency

    #677136

    squeak

    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”.

    #677137

    squeak, which issue of “The Economist” did you copy and paste that from?

    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

    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?

    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 🙁

    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.
