    haha, everyone knows the L for loser... and the W for whatever. You can put them together and say Whatever Loser. Though I have no idea where it comes from or even where I learned it.....
    Oh, I can remember one of my friends' little sisters doing some elaborate thing, like "You're a 'L'oser. I'm a 'W'inner, so 'W'hatever." And that was when I realized that it IS possible for the next generation to be dumber than our own.

    L? W? I feel so sheltered. I've never seen anything like that in the US, but I think Douglas and I live further north than the rest of you all, so maybe these hand gestures haven't caught on north of NYC.

    I did see Jeremy Clarkson (from a British TV show called Top Gear) do something where he made an L with his fingers and put them on his forhead while chanting "loser" over and over. I just figured it was a British thing.

    Yeah, when it comes to making hand gestures, especially rude ones, NYers are in a class of their own.

    Ain't that the truth? Though at least New York drivers aren't as homicidal as their London counterparts. :eek:

    It's those tiny, emasculating cars that are the problem. Guys have to go further to get out their aggression.

    Its not so much a 'northern' thing as it is a general distance from civilization. If you happen to live 300 miles from the nearest McDonalds then you probably dont have the best grasp on reality. You vote Republican to secure yourself from the threat of aliens. Both those from Mexico and and those from distant galaxies who fly over your foilage, caves, and burrows in their spaceships with their tractor beams sucking up one of you distant and near (at the same time) relatives who, upon return, goes on to appear on the Ricki Lake Show in exchange for a three figure check, cases of beef jerkey and menthol cigarettes.

    How can you go through any high school and miss that? It's even in some pretty popular songs such as the "Hey now, you're a rockstar" one. And I'm sure it's been tons of movies.

    Don't know. I went to a high school in Greenwich, Connecticut and things were a bit different. Bismark may know Greenwich....it's only 30 minutes north of NYC by train.

    In my high school, quality entertainment (for my classmates, not me!) was streaking across the cafeteria nude and detonating explosives in the cafeteria trash cans, sending garbage 30 feet in the air. I didn't know that wasn't normal until my freshman year in college.

    :eek: "You mean it wasn't normal to have kids undress in the bathrooms and run across the cafeteria in nothing but a ski mask? That never happened at your high school????" :eek:

    I don't think it's happened recently, but there have been plenty of threats, most of them centered around graduation or something like that.

    I hope not! Ever notice how the people with the ugliest bodies are sometimes the most likely to take their clothes off?

    I'm still having nightmares after a visit to some beaches in the Greek islands.
