no – americans inexplicably all say ‘could care less’. even though empirically that makes no sense; if they ‘could care less’, then there is a modicum of sensitivity about the issue at least. whatever. i don’t want to start a transatlantic debate going (trolls’ve trolled that one about on pretty much every english language site on the internet since time began). but for the record, i’m english, and if anyone on here wants to see a photo of my perfectly straight, perfectly white teeth that i’ve never worn a brace on, hit me up!
oh, and lol @ melissa. christina is the singing detective!
There are few things which all Americans do, slums, and turning phrases incorrectly is not one of them. However, I think you could make the argument that most, if not all Americans get really annoyed when preople from other countries make generalizations about us that make us seem like we can’t speak English.
Does anyone remember not too long ago, when someone came here with supposed proof that Lamebook had edited a submission and completely changed its meaning? I was pretty disappointed that it seemed nothing ever came of it, unless I just missed that.
The herpesvirus family is large and includes chicken pox and the virus that causes mononucleosis. The teacher in the first submission was trying to keep mono from spreading through the entire student body by (gasp!) educating her students.
OMG @ Bulldog in #14!!! That’s so awesome, an American having a cry about how they hate when people generalise about them and their culture! Boo hoo, that must suck. For the most part I don’t think the majority of the world thinks you guys have bad grammar….I think it’s more that you’re pretentious, ignorant and fat!
Well, I have quite a bit to do then. Probably book plane tickets… at the very least fill the car up… tell H.R. I’ll be out for the remainder of the day, and perhaps tomorrow too, depending on how you stack up… but i’ll be there. Get your riding crop ready.
We should create a FB group for this most serious issue that is upon us (similar to how I will be upon you).
Our goal? Protection for our jobs if we feel the need for sexual release and/or escapades whilst on work hours as long as they are figured into either two 15 minute sessions, or on a lunch break (allowing one hour).
Being tied up and gagged makes a lot of things sexier. Still, there’s something about putting you in a powdered wig and making sure you’re properly restrained and gagged that does sound like a lot of fun. Constitutional Congress style!
There are many types of southern accent. There’s the trailer park accent, which you’ve heard on Jerry Springer. There’s also the more aristocratic old-south accent which is actually fairly awesome. There’s a really awesome accent that you find with people from the South Carolina or Georgia coast that I really like, if I could choose, I’d go for that one. I’ve got a very slight accent that really only people from outside the south seem to pick up on, it’s pretty neutral.
And I’m a proud Georgian myself, by the end of a long, hot day down here, even the glasses of sweet tea are sweating.
No kidding. Small world. Robins Air Force base was home for a while and then we ended up moving a lot for obvious reasons. I did always love it there though. I still go back time to time, usually only as a stop over though. I would like to go back for a few days. People in Georgia are so freakin’ nice it’s ridiculous. Real southern hosipitality. Haven’t had one in bed yet though… I’m left to wonder.
They say it’s better to ask forgiveness than permission.
You know, now that you mention it, I don’t think I’ve ever seen southern porn. This kinda amazes me, you’d think that there would be some bustling Atlanta suburb just turning it out, but I can’t think of any. Maybe I need to start making it. The first one will be about a northern visitor on summer vacation, just trying to see everything there is to do in the south. Sort of a “Katy Does Atlanta” type deal. All I need is to find the female lead…
Right?? I have been really trying to think of a time that I watched one and noticed that… I really don’t think that I have. Amazing. It’s probably because I would guess 90% of mainstream porn comes from California from girls who figure they’ll just do it for some cash while trying to “make it big” “acting”. LOL
…now where on god’s green earth are you going to find a sex hungry northern girl to visit the south and take the lead… Hmmm…
It does make sense. The thought of some porn girl in California trying to do a southern accent makes my stomach hurt… it’s bad enough when established actresses try to pull one off. Ugh….
If I can cast you, I’ll even give you the profits off the first movie. I have a feeling it will be worth it just to lace you up in that bustier and then go to town on you, near some notable southern landmark.
Watch it, Bulldog. They are “actresses” and for you to refer to them as “some porn girl” will certainly get you killed. I don’t think they, as a breed, are all that stable. Regardless, the thought of a badly attempted Southern accent in a porn does make me giggle. I don’t even think I could enjoy it.
And how sweet, I would hope to get some form of payment for our first porno. And don’t worry, as always, I will *earn* my money …and I think that since we both know Warner Robins, our first scene should be on the wing of a jet, an F-22 Raptor, if you don’t mind.
however rare that a post appears on this site with the normal spelling of my name, I continue to discover a new reason to dislike being Mellissa. I love seeing spell check tell me I’m wrong every time I spell it. oh well, at least I don’t have Herpes. props to that Mel for admitting her problem. she essentially went through all four stages of grief in one go.
