2004-12-07 [Kayne]: Those things you call French fries are not real chips. Fries aren't even French; they are Belgian though 97.85% of you (including the guy who discovered fries while in Europe) are not aware of a country called Belgium I lube this place :D *First comment*
2004-12-07 [SilverFire]: *LMAO* w00t dude! this rocks.
2004-12-08 [iippo]: *agrees with everything except the chip/crisp part* Britain is the only place where you insist on calling fries chips and chips crisps.
2004-12-08 [SilverFire]: because there is a distinct difference between fries and normal chips. :\
2004-12-08 [iippo]: I'm more bugged by the fact that you have to have a different name for Chips as in crisps... no one makes the head or tail with your weirdo words... :P same thing with sneakers. They are sneakers, not trainers. Trainers are trousers.
2004-12-08 [SilverFire]: wtf??? Trainers are shoes, trousers are trousers. :\ simple as.
2004-12-08 [iippo]: nein. non. nahi. eipas. :P anyways, this place pwns *goes to advertise*
2004-12-08 [deus-ex-machina]: meh, i wasn't even watching this wiki page >.<
2004-12-08 [deus-ex-machina]: anyway, i'm passwording it because i don't want any angry americans ruining it :(
2004-12-08 [iippo]: good thinking... tho not that there are any americans here yet... or is tempie here as an invisible force?
2004-12-08 [SilverFire]: non - kayne, you Deus, meh. we're the watchers...
2004-12-08 [iippo]: ah well, he'll be here sooner or later *will say the words 'speak of the devil' when tempie arrives* *sits patiently to wait* *turns on TV (an imaginery one, since I don't have a real one* *watches Conan O'Brien: "..and that is to viciously insult every nation in the world..."* XD I love him
2004-12-08 [Aradon Templar]: rofl ^^
2004-12-09 [iippo]: speak of the devil!
2004-12-09 [Aradon Templar]: Heh, sorry I didn't say more. Again, in a hurry. This kind of stuff amuses me, but I imagine hundreds of fools will come in here crying out, "You ****** can't take away our freedom, you *****", and such odd phrases as that o.O
2004-12-09 [iippo]: And then we get to do all the same stuff as in Gothie-page, but instead of targetting gothies we get to target people without sense of humour... whee!
2004-12-09 [Aradon Templar]: yay ^___^ *looks up at gas prices* Whew, you guys have expensive gas... Though I suppose there's a little less driving to do, for some of you. Not that it would make much difference, really.
2004-12-09 [SilverFire]: hmmm, it's tax, all bleedin' tax. =\
2004-12-10 [iippo]: I think it's good that gasoline/petro
2004-12-10 [Aradon Templar]: Heh, Americans think everything should be free :P Our gas costs a fourth of what you pay o.O
2004-12-10 [iippo]: XD but yeah, I've noticed that uber-freedomne
2004-12-10 [Aradon Templar]: Eh, just some of it is scary. People ought to pay for stuff, but all that gas would drive us bankrupt o.O Freedom itself isn't scary, though... If everyone follows the rules, its perfectly orderly, but when they don't follow the rules, its disastrous >.>
2004-12-10 [iippo]: Yea well, if everyone were nice people, communism would be fun ((stole that from silbe))
2004-12-10 [Aradon Templar]: True. Perfect communism would be ideal. Too bad there's no society un-corrupt enough for it :\
2004-12-11 [iippo]: Yeah. Well, since the people are too stupid to see what is best for them, we need complete authoritary to tell them that... and if they don't believe... *Homer-like squinting and shaking fist*
2004-12-11 [Kayne]: *Thinks of iippo-Locke*
2004-12-12 [iippo]: Locke? *wrecks brain to show kayne that she does remember that name from philosophy-cla
2004-12-12 [Kayne]: :p *has no time*
2004-12-12 [iippo]: pffft.
2005-01-12 [King of Weirdworld]: I'm actually offended by this.
2005-01-12 [SilverFire]: Yeah? Tell someone who cares ^^
2005-01-12 [deus-ex-machina]: you're not serious, are you? *sigh*
2005-01-18 [Kayne]: Mmm maybe he doen't know that the better part of it are facts?
2005-01-18 [iippo]: which part? *isn't sure what page she ish on*
2005-01-18 [Kayne]: For the usa. :p
2005-01-19 [iippo]: Ah. -.- It's when you just click the commentlinks while talking to someone next to you and then you end up on the bottom of the page and you don't know what page you are on...
2005-01-19 [Mirime]: *chuckles*
2005-01-20 [iippo]: O_O *ish chuckled at*
2005-04-23 [.Voodoo child.]: now thats what am talkin bout this ones way better than for the u.k kick arse brits
2005-04-23 [iippo]: *murgles*
2005-04-23 [SilverFire]: ... *TwITcH* My eyes, it burns T_T
2005-04-23 [iippo]: *knows exactly what Silver means*
2005-09-17 [Soul Assassin]: hehe much enjoyed. ^^
2005-10-05 [Sombre]: This made me laugh so much...=D
2005-10-22 [Seamus Schwathe]: It sounds like SUCH a good idea...
2005-11-06 [SilverBlue82]: *disagrees with everything commented above*
2005-11-06 [SilverFire]: There's a surprise.
2005-11-07 [SilverBlue82]: Nationalism: the belief that your country is better then all others simply for the reason that you were born there
2005-11-07 [SilverFire]: Arrogant: 1) Having or displaying a sense of overbearing self-worth or self-importanc
2005-11-07 [deus-ex-machina]: 'Tis a joke. Look back at my house and you will see there is one for the UK too. =) All in good fun.
2005-11-08 [SilverBlue82]: I know :p sarcasm fails terribly over the internet
2005-11-08 [SilverFire]: hence le </sarcasm> taggereth.
2005-11-08 [deus-ex-machina]: Indeed. The first comment was like 'yeah... *shrug*'... The use of definitions threw me into a state of raging confusion. Although it wasn't raging. Raging is just a fun adjective. Raging. Ray-JING!
2005-11-08 [iippo]: Eww at Ray-jing.
2005-11-08 [deus-ex-machina]: Shoo. Spatula fan. =(
2005-11-08 [iippo]: O_O People are saying the most amazing things today. Someone said to me something about "shades of de je vu" and immediately I was transformed into a world where I possessed a pair of sunglasses that made the wearer see de ja vus (that's a copyrighted thought now :P) and now, a spatula fan... rotating and automatically making pancakes all the time, so many many pancakes... O_o
2005-11-19 [Bumsoft]: the petrol prices thing is very, very true. a litre in europe costs more than a gallon in the US... and a bottle of water in london costs more than both.
2005-11-20 [iippo]: I thought the bottle of water-thing was true in the Emirates: they have mroe oil than water, hence they drink oil.
2005-11-20 [deus-ex-machina]: O.o - Drinking oil can't be good for you. =P
2005-11-21 [The illustrious Piki]: "There will always be an England..." Oh, brings a tear to my eye...
2005-12-13 [Kiddalee]: Task 11 is hilarious.
2005-12-26 [Tickle Me Emo]: I think I'm part of that 2.15%, because I'm confused as to why they call it the "World Series" as well. In referrence to #4, though, I believe Hollywood will start casting British people as soon as the people working on the HP movies cast an American kid. JK allowed them to cast Biggerstaff, so as soon as she stops discriminating against Americans it's all good. Don't blame her, though. I would discriminate against myself if it weren't for the sheer stupidity of such an action.
2005-12-26 [SilverFire]: I think your much mistaken over hollywood :) But I can't really be bothered to argue. You think Hollywood's only been frecking w/ British Actors since they started producing the HP films? Hollywood have type-cast English actors long before that. Could it possibly be that may, just maybe, Rowling has a liiiittle bit of a reason for not wanting American actors? Nah, that'd just be silly... pfeh.
2005-12-27 [iippo]: I would find it difficult to watch Harry Potter with an American kid in it. That actor would just destroy the reality of the story. Americans just do not go over to England to study, even less at the age of 11. We shall assume there is a wizarding school in USA as well -- well, maybe in Canada at least that American kids can attend. Or maybe it's an American thing to not have the wizarding gene and maybe there are no witches or wizards in the USA at all! :O
2006-01-15 [Delladreing]: *haunts*
2006-01-21 [Yncke]: Thank you for the laugh this page has painted on my face. (And thank you for giving the Belgians the credit they deserve concerning the fries.)
2006-02-09 [MkNalsheen]: this is hilarious as crap, i love this
2006-05-18 [Azuri]: Heh I love reading this thing. Does it still apply to us smart americans who didnt vote the current president into office? >> Cause I voted nater. >>
2006-05-19 [Jeesum Crowe]: Nader? *kills*
2006-05-19 [deus-ex-machina]: I thought it was Nader?
2006-05-19 [Jeesum Crowe]: HAH I knew that was off... *fixes*
2006-05-19 [Azuri]: ah i was close. all i cared was that he wasnt bush or kerry >>
2006-05-19 [Jeesum Crowe]: Hey Kerry would've been my vote. Nader is an anarchist prick who can bite my ass. ...In my opinion.
2006-05-19 [deus-ex-machina]: I know nothing about American politics - just that your biggest mistake was to fight the British and bore them to the extent of wishing to leave. :P
2006-05-19 [Jeesum Crowe]: *is Canadian, but!* I know the Brits were dumb enough to show up to war in red coats with a band. *shakes head*
2006-05-19 [Azuri]: lol. kerry was the better of the two but i hadnt followed their politics so i just voted for the one i knew wasnt going to win
2006-05-19 [Azuri]: America pretty much sucks stay away from it XD
2006-05-19 [Jeesum Crowe]: Why even vote?
2006-05-19 [Azuri]: umm because if i dont people will tell me not to bitch about the president and well i like my right to bitch thank you :-P
2006-05-19 [Jeesum Crowe]: Huh. That's like saying "You didn't vote so you can't bitch about Hitler," to a Polish Jew circa 1941.
2006-05-19 [Azuri]: well thats the kinda people my family is. if you didnt vote for at least someone you best not be bitchin about the president. I cant help they are crazy old people >>
2006-05-19 [Azuri]: let me amend that. I meant crazy old bush supporting people >>
2006-05-19 [Jeesum Crowe]: Damn Republicans.
2006-05-19 [Azuri]: *nods*my grandparents are real big suporters of his but i think my mom sees he sucks >>
2006-05-19 [Jeesum Crowe]: Your mother has seen the light.
2006-05-19 [Azuri]: *nods* other wise i wouldnt be able to freely express my dislike of him. Last I heard my grandparents thought the "war" in Iraq was a good thing and that jesus was to return soon...im sure it didnt help that bush went and claimed all on his own that Sept 11 was the first strike of WWWIII...someh
2006-05-19 [Jeesum Crowe]: Bush is a lameass.
2006-05-19 [Azuri]: makes me sad for my country thank god he cant run again
2006-05-19 [Jeesum Crowe]: Secretly I think that's why he got second term. So people were sure it would never happen again...
2006-05-19 [Azuri]: lol might be XD I can see it now it was a huge conspiracy!
2006-05-19 [Jeesum Crowe]: It probably was.
2006-05-19 [Azuri]: Mesh get all the uber bad stuff out of the way >> then again word is that Hillary Clintion may run for president this time :/ Im not so sure Im up for a female president. She would PMS and press the little button that says "Bombs Away!" XD
2006-05-19 [Jeesum Crowe]: No, a female president would be good. Look at that 67 year old woman who just got elected President in Liberia.
2006-05-19 [Azuri]: O.o thats news to me. I never turn on my tv unless its for cartoons >>
2006-05-19 [iippo]: Finland also has a female president. Her popularity rating at best was 94%. Generally, it makes more sense to have a "mother of the nation" and not "father of the nation" since usually mothers are more... motherly and care more. And, a 67-year-old lady wouldn't be PMSing anymore. :P
2006-05-19 [Jeesum Crowe]: Hey I didn't even think of that... Anyway she's this really great smart woman who is trying to get her country back on track after all of this craziness happened and whatnot and apparently she's the first elected female president in Africa. And look! *points up* Finland has a female president! America totally needs to follow suit.
2006-05-19 [iippo]: Finland is the USA of Europe, that is the sad fact.
2006-05-19 [Azuri]: Mesh ok i agree seems like its doing well in other parts so whoo go female president!
2006-05-19 [Jeesum Crowe]: Mesh? That's odd... That's like starting sentences with "Linen," or "Silk organza." Just sitting around. "Linen my this is a good album." "Silk organza I quite agree." "Mesh I've heard better."
2006-05-20 [Azuri]: lol I say Mesh and Yesh and dont question my odditiys >> XD
2006-05-20 [Jeesum Crowe]: Psh.
2006-05-20 [Azuri]: :-P i cant help i make up my own words ive been doin it for yeaaaaaars
2006-06-23 [Firenze]: I agree with you on the fact that Devon is called Devon but if you look at old maps of England it is called Devonshire and in my history lessons it is called Devonshire, Devon is just the modern shortened name for Devonshire, plus the fact I am Devonian myself and we still call it Devonshire in the rural parts. So in truth there should be no problem with calling Devon, Devonshire as we call it that as well.
2006-06-23 [SilverFire]: ...nitpicking always ruins comedy. :(
2006-06-23 [Delladreing]: It does, it really does. Thats like me saying I'm a Milguyette rather than a Glaswegian. For the love of God leave it alone o.o
2007-08-21 [Duke Devlin]: Ha. Sadly, this version makes much more sense than the British one, since our language and stuff actually makes sense XD Well done again.
2007-08-21 [Mortified Penguin]: Bush rules! Screw England, as well as all of Europe! Woo North America (except for those filthy Canadians)!
2007-08-21 [Mortified Penguin]: *proudly eats a donut, whilst pronouncing "Edinburgh" as "e-den-burg"*
2007-08-21 [Duke Devlin]: Lol, okay I agree edinburgh should be pronounced like that. But, doughnut is an english word, create dby the english XD
2007-08-21 [Mortified Penguin]: English, sminglish... I'm Mexican! ...*eats a taco*...
2007-08-21 [Duke Devlin]: Lol okay okau XD Tbh I don't think it matters; the american language is easier to spell, english sounds nicer. Both pro's ;)
2007-08-21 [Mortified Penguin]: Half the English can't pronounce things right anyway...
2007-08-21 [Duke Devlin]: Yes. The stupid half that watch too many american shows. =p
Or other shows for that matter. For the most part we speak very well ^^ Except the uneducated twits. XD
2007-08-22 [Mortified Penguin]: I don't watch many American shows... I tend to watch Japanese game shows, where they don't have to worry as much about being sued...
2007-08-22 [deus-ex-machina]: The English can pronounce things perfectly. We just have a language that is deeper than the Americana crap you grew up on. Our slang is more complex than most whole languages and from region to region, people don't understand each other. It sounds like a problem, doesn't it? But I hardly understand anyone from the South of the US... and the people from the north have little of anything worth saying either way.
2007-08-22 [Mortified Penguin]: How many southerners have you actually spoken to in real life?
2007-08-22 [deus-ex-machina]: Roughly the same amount of English people you have spoken to, my love.
2007-08-22 [Mortified Penguin]: I've actually spoken to a lot... I work at Flea Markets on Saturdays and Sundays, where I meet a wide variety of people... Why, just last Saturday I spoke to a Russian woman and an Indian woman who stopped by to buy fruit... the week before, I spoke to a German guy, an Australian chick, and some freaky Swedish sounding guy... then there's the usual customers: Mexicans, Guatamalans, Cubans, Black guys (both educated and ganster), fat hillbillies, rednecks, regular white guys, and a few loosers from Panama...
2007-08-22 [Delladreing]: Edinburg? *hiss* watch your tongue.
2007-08-22 [Duke Devlin]: Can I note that you did not mention speaking to any English people in that essay of yours? =P
2007-08-22 [deus-ex-machina]: I used to frequent Yahoo! Chat years back and used the microphone ability. Most of them were rednecks. I couldn't understand most. :P Then I have a few good friends I've spoken to once or twice on the internet, then there's a few at my university and sometimes they need to use subtitles in documentaries set in the South. So I might not have spoken to a huge number, but I've tried to listen to a lot. :(
2007-08-22 [Duke Devlin]: I don't have nearly the same experience speaking with americans; but those I have, are understandable
Some are difficult simply because of a thick accent; like some of us, but alot just use weird pronounciation
2007-08-22 [iippo]: A lot of British accents are just as incomprehensib
2007-08-22 [Duke Devlin]: I said that.. Look up ^^ "because of a thick accent; like some of us," XD
2007-08-22 [iippo]: Bah, yous adderded that when I wasn't lookin' :P
2007-08-22 [Duke Devlin]: XD Lol, yes, of course I did XD
Luckily, most people can be understood ;) Everywhere; unless they speak weird languages oO
2007-08-22 [iippo]: Like norweigan.
2007-08-22 [Duke Devlin]: Maybe oO
More like russian >.< I love that language, but I just don't understand it >.<
2007-08-22 [Mortified Penguin]: Hmm... they sound like they're from Mississippi...
2007-08-22 [Duke Devlin]: What? Russians? XD
2007-08-22 [Mortified Penguin]: *smacks head*... the weirdos who need "Southern subtitles"...
2007-08-22 [Duke Devlin]: Oh I see XD
2007-08-22 [Mortified Penguin]: Yes, but do you have 20/20 vision?
2007-08-22 [Duke Devlin]: Yes I do =P Ha
2007-08-22 [Mortified Penguin]: Oh yeah?! ...I have 20/15!
2007-08-22 [Duke Devlin]: Well good for you XD
2008-02-04 [Lady Arrianya]: People! I am American, and have talked with Canadian people who argue less.... However, I must agree, we as Americans have, for the most part, forgotten the whole meanings that we hereby set for ourselves, under the flag of Patriotism. We do need a president who can keep their head out of their rears long enough to run this country, and we do need better standards. However, baseball is also played in Japan, therefore should be removed from the above list (this is just my personal opinion, however football as America knows it should be discarded.) Furthermore, accents can be worked through and if one doesn't like another accent, then one should stay at home with the crybabies. I am not afraid to speak my mind, and others should not be either for criticism is a part of life and people should deal with it as such.
2008-02-04 [Duke Devlin]: Wow you took that a bit seriously. oO
2008-02-04 [Lady Arrianya]: one must as a debater...howe
2008-02-04 [SilverFire]: One must, as a debater, know when to be serious, and when to acknowledge that something is a joke, not to be taken seriously, not worth stirring anything up about because, at the end of the day, what you say is not going to change anything. Deus didn't write this, if you're offended you should think why, and remember that anything worth taking seriously is worth laughing about. What you're complaining about here is political incorrectness. British people love politically incorrect humour, so I think you're just going to have to respect our culture here, and deal with it. But if you really need to console yourself, you can always go to For the UK.
TO summarise: Lighten up, not everything needs debating, you'll ruin a good piece of humour if you get sulky about it, and well; if you don't like it, don't look. ;)
2008-02-04 [Duke Devlin]: I don't even remember the entire context of what we were talking about, and it was all in fun anyway, as I'm sure all will agree. :) .. Except Mort.. He'll contest that all the way. But that's just the way he is.
2008-02-04 [Lady Arrianya]: I know how that goes. Probably too well somedays.
2008-02-04 [SilverFire]: Sure you do, but everyone needs reminded every now and then.
2008-02-04 [Lady Arrianya]: True
2008-02-04 [SilverFire]: I don't make a habit of stating things I believe are falsities. ;)
2008-02-04 [Lady Arrianya]: Don't get me wrong, I see the humor of this as well, but there are some who won't see that humor. And the reference to Deus was due to my finding a link to this on her house.
2008-02-04 [SilverFire]: I figured, I was just correcting you. And you don't need to worry about other people getting offended, nor pre-empt their lack of humour. They may never see this, and then you'd have brought it up for nothing. If they do, they can be dealt with then. Cross bridges when you come to them, not beforehand. ;)
2008-02-04 [Lady Arrianya]: I'm afraid I must learn that sometime.
2008-02-04 [SilverFire]: Now is as good a time as ever. :)
2008-02-04 [Lady Arrianya]: Probably, if one is willing to learn :P. Then again, I generally am.
2008-02-04 [deus-ex-machina]: Indeed, I put these down on ET years ago after reading them elsewhere. I can see why some people might get offended, but sometimes I think people look for reasons to be offended so they can be offensive themselves. Xenophobic zealots come to mind. But no, this was never meant to offend. Well, to a degree of course it is... but it's one of those politically incorrect things that should cause a chuckle rather than a frown. And if people complain, those people can suck a nut. :)
