    I wish americans would stop referring to american football as football when it's actually rugby for pussies.

    what? well, who says re-diculous?
    People say i-dear all the time. I think I heard a british guy on a dancing show on TV last, but I've heard lots and lots of others say it.

    Heard it on the simpsons earlier....and a million times before that.

    90% of the time I see it written by americans I see it spelled with an "e" as well.

    Oh and yes, i-dear is stupid too....but english people can't tell the difference between R and, well, no R. Some say "drorring" instead of "drawing". Half the time they don't even bother to pronounce Rs at all.

    I hate it when people make generalizations about an entire country, based on a few individuals.

    I hate it when people spell generalisations incorrectly with a "z" after spelling "improvisational" with an "s".

    I'd really like to see how long a pro rugby player would last in the NFL...even with pads on.

    Have you ever watched a game of rugby? People get their ears torn off playing that game. It's brutal stuff.

    They also learn how to tackle properly so people don't get their backs broken.

    Or when the same ditsy bitches say, "Oh my GAWD, Shut Up!" when they get excited. I can never get used to having some bimbo tell me to "Shut Up" and not get a bit insulted by it.

    Oh... I also say "Pewter" instead of "Computer"... quite often.

    I also say, "Oy-veh" a lot... and I'm as much of a gentile as they come.
