The difference between Americans and British

Post by *THE Ben Reilly* on Thu May 19, 2016 10:55 pm

"Did you know Americans drive on the right and British on the left?"

American: Wow, don't know if I could get used to that.

British: Bloody fools driving on the wrong side of the road ...

"Did you know British have tea time but Americans don't?"

American: Sounds like a charming custom!

British: Bloody savages ...

"Did you know that British put a letter 'U' into words like 'honor,' while Americans don't?"

American: Well, you can still understand what they're saying ...

British: Bloody Yanks need to bloody learn how to bloody spell properly!!!

"Did you know that when Americans and British refer to 'football,' they're usually talking about completely different sports?"

American: Meh. Who cares?

British: Handegg (also known as Gridiron Football, or Rugby With Pads), is a homosexual pastime enjoyed mostly by Americunts because of cultural obligation for having stolen it from the mutually hated British. Since Americunts are fat (thus needing a break every 5 seconds), stupid (need to be told what to do every play), and generally unskilled, Handegg was tailored for them. With its use of tights, helmets, body armor, under eye make up, fanny pack, and the QB Snap routine (where the team's captain mounts his man's asshole every down) it is the primary recruiting technique for young new faggots and Army members as it is a required part of most young men's high school education. The objective of the game is to protect your team's egg so it doesn't get cracked and get it back to the nest. To Americunts, the game the rest of the world calls "football" is to them called "soccer". This makes no sense, as soccer is clearly played with feet, and yet their bastardization of a real man's sport like Rugby seems to involve little-to-no kicking whatsoever. This particular misnomer only serves to further the entirely accurate allegation that the average Americunt IQ is even smaller than Asia's entire average penis size.

and all of it true....



BTW...you only drive on the wrong side of the road becasue napoleon kicked seven bells outta all the continental forbears you have....

see us brits originally rode on the left hand side this leaving the right space clear to draw a sword into

napoleon was left handed and so dictated that his troops rode on the "wrong side" (becasue he was a twat)

It actually played a part in his eventual down fall and cost him a lot of troops in any case....

but the legacy lives on...


hell, you even race horses "the wrong way round"

"Did you know Americans drive on the right and British on the left?"

American: Wow, educate me about that.

British: It goes back to days of old when a knight wielded his sword to the right and kept to the left.

"Did you know British have tea time but Americans don't?"

American: Wow, educate me on that.

British: Invented by the Duchess of Bedford, who got peckish at 4. It's a sign of culture.

"Did you know that when Americans and British refer to 'football,' they're usually talking about completely different sports?"

American: Wow, educate me on that.

British: The word, Soccer, was coined 200 years ago in England. Another one of ours you nicked.

"Did you know that British put a letter 'U' into words like 'honor,' while Americans don't?"

American: Wow, educate me on that.

British: I rest my case.

None of which have any power.
The state of Oklahoma just used its power to criminalize women, rape victims, forcing them to keep unwanted pregnancies and you equate that to 3 small groups and one political party with 4 million supporters.

Wow, brain of the bunch you must be eh?

It's not going to stand, as I said in the OP.

The point of this thread is something I've noticed a lot before, and this discussion has drawn it out. The British have apparently been cultivating this notion that they're superior to Americans for decades, and a lot of it is based on nonsense or things that don't actually matter.

Nothing to do with superiority, but progressiveness.
The yanks have too many literal Christian believers, that hold sway in many areas of your country.
Making you the only Western nation that still has religious power, which is a major issue.
You seem to have racism on the brain with the methodology of superiority, which is nothing to do with this.
We just have more secularism than you do and people who want to ensure all have equal rights under the law.
Its your daft Federal system that is the problerm

Yes for the yanks, as it was also the invention of the first "Early Learning Centre" for infants.

I didn't screw up anything, I was just providing examples of how the British used to use the "or" ending.

If you want to put "proper" spelling on an intellectual pedestal for some reason, then Shakespeare was a blithering idiot:

Th'expence of Spirit in a waste of shame
Is lust in action, and till action, lust
Is perjurd, murdrous, blouddy full of blame,
Savage, extreame, rude, cruell, not to trust,
Injoy'd no sooner but dispised straight,
Past reason hunted, and no sooner had
Past reason hated as a swollowed bayt,
On purpose layd to make the taker mad.
Made In pursut and in possession so,
Had, having, and in quest, to have extreame,
A blisse in proofe and provd and very wo,
Before a joy proposd behind a dreame,
All this the world well knowes yet none knowes well,
To shun the heaven that leads men to this hell.

Exactly, but sadly "some" regressives are so hypocritical, they constantly like to label everyone when the mood suits
Of course when they get defensive over what they have thrown back their way, when they have done this all the time in how they cast British people.
Then clearly the lesson is finally hitting home on them

Have a green

I would add only one thing to there being any real difference between the yanks and the British, as in the main we have people who holds many views but are in the main secular.
The only real difference is on how they have a large proportion of literal religious people, than they UK does and I am including the fact we have many literal Muslims here.
That is the only real difference on those governeed by religious beliefs, that superscede the laws of the land, and those religious and non religious that enbrace secularism and democracy

OK, "some." I've been exposed to the attitudes and beliefs of "some" British people here, and the combined effect is that it seems "some" British consider Britain a superior society to the United States, despite that "some" British also think black people are all criminals, Muslims are all terrorists, homosexuality should be illegal, etc.

ALL the bigots on NF are British, and yet I'm to listen to lectures about how my country is less enlightened.

I always thought the Americans were considered our "cousins". I don't understand the hostility on here at times?

We make great TV but IMO the Americans do it better.
But their food sucks.

I feel more kinship with Mexico, actually. They've contributed more to the culture I grew up in than the British did.

No, that is incorrect, People have reacted to how you have yourself been and portrayed the British.
You are and others the cause of how this transends.
You fail to see it was by your views onto others, that had a cause and effect.
I have nothing against Americans, and it does not even come into my equation, as i have issues with those regressive and led by poor beliefs.
So most never even had an issue with the US, until you and others made it a view of superiority yourselves by constantly looking down on British people for the few of them that are here on your forum.
A person of true honesty, knows what they cause and create and you are the creater of your own pet hate

Think about that

Didge has a point Ben. You can't judge all Brits by the British on NF.
Am I a typical British person?

But that is the point Eddie, we are all humans and this argument is nothing more than racial in its root thinking.
But the point is Ben and others have looked down on some here for their views ands through a racial lense at this being because they are British.
I know people are different no matter who they are and its beliefs and concepts that sway who we are.
The fact is though, it was Ben and co from the start that created the felling of a them and us attitude, based on our views, with them racially looking down at us as British and not seeing us as human beings.

OK, "some." I've been exposed to the attitudes and beliefs of "some" British people here, and the combined effect is that it seems "some" British consider Britain a superior society to the United States, despite that "some" British also think black people are all criminals, Muslims are all terrorists, homosexuality should be illegal, etc.

ALL the bigots on NF are British, and yet I'm to listen to lectures about how my country is less enlightened.

France has a NF and a large supporter base...


And I don't remember any Brits here saying ALL blacks are criminals or ALL Muslims are terrorists or homosexuality should be illegal...

Now that's not true. Veya is a bigot, and he's not British. You're quite bigoted about Brits yourself.

Stormee is current and specifically said he believes this twice.

Veya, myself and other non-British members have heard all kinds of shit about our countries. I remember Vic once told me I don't have a culture.

But criticize Britain in any way and everybody gets so sensitive about it. Which was the whole point of the OP, by the way. SOME British people seem to be deeply offended that Americans don't copy their culture.

That's rubbish. Some people on here are constantly having a go at Brits and the UK, and some of us merely defend ourselves and our country.

I didn't screw up anything, I was just providing examples of how the British used to use the "or" ending.

If you want to put "proper" spelling on an intellectual pedestal for some reason, then Shakespeare was a blithering idiot:

Th'expence of Spirit in a waste of shame
Is lust in action, and till action, lust
Is perjurd, murdrous, blouddy full of blame,
Savage, extreame, rude, cruell, not to trust,
Injoy'd no sooner but dispised straight,
Past reason hunted, and no sooner had
Past reason hated as a swollowed bayt,
On purpose layd to make the taker mad.
Made In pursut and in possession so,
Had, having, and in quest, to have extreame,
A blisse in proofe and provd and very wo,
Before a joy proposd behind a dreame,
     All this the world well knowes yet none knowes well,
     To shun the heaven that leads men to this hell.

The nailing down of language happened during the 1800s, on both sides of the Atlantic, and thanks largely to the reforming zeal of American lexicographer Noah Webster, it was with markedly different results in the U.S. than in Victorian Britain.

Seeking to wrest control of the language from the British ruling classes, Noah wrote three books that aimed to make a tidy pile of that mess we were talking about. One on grammar, one on reading, and one on spelling. His first—originally titled The First Part of the Grammatical Institute of the English Language, then The American Spelling Book, then The Elementary Spelling Book—became the standard text book from which American teachers taught spelling for 100 years, and it was from reprints and reissues of that original text that Noah began to subtly refine words, spelling them according to how they sound.

Yeah, and there were British who standardized spelling as well -- that's why "perjurd," "blouddy," "injoyed," "bayt," "swollowed," etc. aren't correct any more.

Rubbish -- so I'm lying and nobody here has ever criticized the U.S. or Australia? So people don't go apeshit at any criticism of Britain? So British don't get snippy about what side of the street to drive on or what to call soccer?

Which part of what I actually said is rubbish?

Yes, you are lying. You can't have missed the spiteful rants from Veya, which are mostly unprovoked. If Australia is criticised, it's because some people are tired of the relentless spite from him.

Your post is misleading and bullshit

You have blantantly ignored things Veya has said, which if it had been others you would have banned them.

Second, this all stemmed from you and others racially looking down at peoples vioews on here because they are British

Its you that created such a divide because of your view you are morally and ethically superior to Brits

Well if you didn't miss them, you're clearly being disingenuous.
