I have no physical proof to offer you. Only my word and the fact that I have nothing to gain by lying. I think that we will never meet face to face. Impressing faceless people on a box isn't...

Thanks for the compliments. I like your writing style as well. It's like reading limericks.

Nah, definitely not a politician. I'm too damn honest for that at this juncture in U.S. history. Right now people here want to be lied to and I'm not one to oblige them.

As you've read the English shot us, they burned our cities, or capitol, our homes, our Churches and our White House. I think they've more than earned the...

I stand corrected. I did do a Google search of my own and was able to find references to my story as well. But it appears that the term existed long before WWII.

It originated from the fact that the boat ride from England was a long one, and they needed vitamin c to stave off scurvy, so they sucked on limes. You see, it's rather playful. We call the French...

I believe our term "Limey" is on par with your "Pommy." Or for that matter, the British term for us, "Yankee" or even your own term for us "Sepo." We also call the French "Frogs" and the Germans...

Yes, but can anyone's be truely trusted? In Japan they teach that WWII was entirely America's fault. In the begining of Braveheart the narrator says, "English historians will call me a liar, but...

Limey Humor

Once, in 1991, when I was 15, I visited the UK. On a bus ride from London to Edinburgh, the bus stopped for lunch, around York I believe. So I walked into this pub with five other fifteen year olds,...

I can get onto the site just fine. The only problem is the book he's recommending stops at the 999, the 1098 isn't covered.

What are the symptoms of a blown seal/gasket?
