    Ha, the north isn't the **** hole that all you southerners seem to be imagining. You do realise that we do have proper houses/showers etc. don't you?! Anyway... I think it's because it's f*cking freezing up here and when it's cold you eat more (well I do anyway).

    With the way people act here, you would think that northern England would be something like 10 degrees Celcius below southern England. Isn't the temperature difference quite minimal, on the order of 1-3 degrees?

    I decided to test this quickly, using York (my home town) to Oxford.

    The difference on average in Jan is a shocking 0.3 degrees. The difference in July is an incredible 0.6 degrees!

    How northern people survive in these frigid wastelands is beyond me.

    Because there are more poor people in the north.

    How about you sense the tone. Other people clearly noticed i'm joking from the smilies, its pretty obvious.

    Go and rant elsewhere. Being poor does not make you lazy so grow up.
    I said 'poor people are more likely to be lazy' that does not mean 'being poor makes you lazy' or even 'all poor people are lazy'. Ahhh the subtleties of the English language, I assume English is not your first language, if you are you're language skills are pretty shocking.

    I'm not going to drag myself to your level and even retort to your poor insult with another one. It's clear from my signature that I'm an English Language student.

    However I will highlight that you are saying my language skills are poor, for skim reading a post, whilst you say something like this:

    "I assume English is not your first language, if you are you're language skills are pretty shocking."

    I'm pretty sure your sentence should read "I assume English is not your first language, if it is then your language skills are pretty shocking."

    So, like I said before, grow up.

    Nice quote cutting there. I said I wouldn't retort with a poor insult. I pointed out the irony in his post.

    Edit: Just realised you 'neg repped' me the other week, I see that you have an obvious dislike of me. That is your problem.

    How the hell have you only just realised I negged you, given that as soon as I did you made the following comment here:

    Thanks for the neg though, you obviously care that much.
    Are you going to bring it up every time I dare to disagree with you?

    Every time? Hardly. Its been once, just then. The other one was obviously like you said, right after you did it. Forgive me for not having an enormous memory.

    Don't try to make me sound like a child, making out I bring it up a lot.
    I was insulted, and I pointed out irony in the post by that person. How can you possibly disagree or find fault in that?

    Obviously a mod on a power trip. Nice talking to you.

    You have brought it up twice, out of the two times that I have replied to you. That counts as every time.

    I found fault because you explicitly made the comment that you weren't going to stoop as low as the person who insulted you, before employing exactly the same tactics as him. If anything, I simply pointed out the irony in your post.

    This has nothing to do with the fact that I'm a mod, and given that I have no more power in this forum than a regular member it has nothing to do with a power trip either. But it's interesting to see how quickly you try and deflect away from the issue with a cheap shot.

    Really, well I'm pretty sure there are other threads where I have replied to what you have said in a friendly way. Whereas when you reply to me, it's to be negative.

    Maybe you need to re-read the post you are referring to. I clearly said that I was not going to stoop to their level by throwing poor insults around. Then I pointed out irony in their post.

    Honestly, I'm not going to waste any more time on someone who thinks as much of themselves as you (yes that was an insult).
