    yes I read that the other day... however with regard to your headline..I love Americans generally, I have always found them to be really nice positive confident people .. In real life I've only known a few, the majority online, but my overall experience are that Americans are just nice people..


    I just wished they'd learned English properly at school.... :D:p;)

    Nice people(Except TSA) but they don't have are sense of silly English humour.

    Such as was sitting at a poker table with 7 Americans in Vegas and just said that on a Cold winters Morning you need to get a Faggot down your throat.

    PS flying out to Vegas 17 November and cant wait

    Girl, I can't even speak the proper American version of English. In the south, we have our 'own version'. :D
    We have unique combination of words. Therefore, one word can sometimes be used instead of several words.
    They don't even have spellings. You just have to know the proper sound.

    Of course I did it for a reaction I was playing Poker and when you play people in poker you need to make them TILT.

    She called the floor/manger on me who came up and said O ignore him he is English and winked...had know me for years but she tilted after and was knocked out a few hands later.
