    I like England.

    You forget good things like drinkable tap water, good T.V and music. Foreigners are usually tossers and weird. Humour is a massive plus. People complain about cctv etc but if you're doing nothing wrong what have you got too worry about, i'm sure if you're gran got mugged you'd be thankful it was there and we have a lot more freedom than most countries.

    Ask yourself why do loads of foreigners want to come here if it's so bad?

    I like England, too. There's plenty of countries much worse off than us, in my opinion. I think we forget how good we've actually got it, there's always going to be a country which you believe is better than the one you live in, no matter where you live. It's easy to rhyme off all of the bad things wrong with England, like a lot of the tabloid papers do on a daily basis, and that's why our national "pride" is no more. I personally don't see anything wrong with queue's, as opposed to other countries where everything is a free-for-all. We've got some great artists, architecture, food, culture, free health care and as a nation we're generally polite and well-mannered. I certainly wouldn't just come out with "My country is complete and utter ****. There's, x, y and z wrong with x, y, z." I also think we've got some of the best comedians out there, gotta love that dry English wit. :P

    I was joking. :wtf:

    If we want the worst we should look at your momma.
    The irony is that you couldn't tell I was joking.

    You're quite pathetic...

    I find the UK just boring. "Boredom 'fuels teen alcohol use' "-http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/8181289.stm
    That's a load of crap. It seems to be the default excuse of every idle teenage yob in this country - yet I grew up in a village, there was absolutely nothing for children save a park or two. Still, we found things to do with ourselves and our crime rates were low because, unsurprisingly, our parents were relatively civilised and passed down similar values.

    Yet in areas where binge drinking and teenage crime are rife, there tend to be plenty of things to do: cinemas, coffee shops, sports centres, youth clubs and God knows what else.

    "innit bruv. Skeet skeet" - In English?

    Firstly, I did not imply that putting 'lol' at then end of something makes it a joke. For example, you're a joke, but I'm not going to 'lol'. However it is common when on forums to attach 'lol' with a joke - common sense. So whats your point?

    Secondly, you cant be apathetic, as if you were absent from emotion and interest...then you wouldn't have bothered to reply to my initial statement or my follow-up reply.

    Thirdly, and randomly off topic, how/where do you watch your anime? You a fan of Naruto, Bleach or My-Hime? (this aint a joke - PM me )

    1 - You're not funny. Your initial post replying to mine was absird as it had no tone of "joking" whatsoever. You just thought putting "lol" at the end of it would convey some sort of sarcasm or "joke" as you call it. :rolleyes:

    2 - Apathetic in terms of lack of emotion in my nature. :rolleyes:

    3 - I download anime. You can PM me if you want to discuss anime further or post in the anime forum of TSR. :yes:

    1) I wasn't intending or trying to be funny. Also, you say I had 'no tone' of 'joke' in my initial response- but then how do you suppose I convey that via the use of typing? Had you seen my facial expression and literally heard my tone of voice then you would have known the context of which I was speaking in. I suppose this is the flaw of cyber-talking

    2) Thank you for clearing up the context of your apathy

    3) Cheers for the offer - Check your inbox in a little while :yes:

    1) Jokes can be conveyed through your choice of words, smilies etc. Don't expect me to teach you all about internet humour.

    2) You're quite foolish for not understanding.

    3) I'll reply shortly.

    1) ....Or they can be conveyed via the use of text such as 'LOL' - get it yet?

    2) That reply was insufficient. I was merely trying to bury the hatchet - I was originally planning on disputing your 'apathetic in nature' reply (as its flawed), but I thought "na, I will be the bigger man and just say thanks". Now it looks we're back to square one.

    3) Cheers. Much Appreciated.

    1)That takes away the effort of making a joke you lazy chav.

    2) Insufficient? Don't use words out of context, and get off your high horse you pedantic **** face.

    3) No problem.
