I grant you that in America (and other funny places) they drive on the right side of the road. However in the UK we drive on the correct side of the road!

If you say that you plan on dressing casual this shabbos, maybe just wear a vest and shorts, they will look at you like you escaped from the asylum

Hey, I missed this thread it's great. Keep it going chaps!
Did you know there is also a Washington and a boston in the USA,
I thought they were just small places near Gateshead.
Now there's a place they don't have in the states.

Here's a great quote for you it was said about Winston Churchill
(you know the one who used to swear at Hitler ימ"ש when he stood behind him.)

"He mobilised the English language into battle against the Nazis"

Said by..... JFK!!

Don't get me started on this, I could go on and on and on.
One of the great Paradox's of the English language is the correct pronunciation of Tomato, as in Potato, or is it Tomarto but then we don't say Potarto.
This could be useful when you need to switch off when "she" walks by.

Funny thing... this one is for Moish et al, when I went to Israel, to Yeshiva, I met and got to know my first Yanks, as we used to call them. And they used to go on about how proper the British were, try to copy our accents, now this was back in the day in the late 80's when All England football (soccer) teams were banned from all European football Competitions because of the way the Hooligans behaved, it was just after Heisel or something like that. So I thought, English, proper, ha that's a laugh, I bet you've never met a Football hooligan.
That's something you don't get in the States, thank goodness.
But they are not just a British phenomenon they have them in lots of place in Europe too

you say tomato i say ummmm, thats a rubber ball
i used to look back all the time saying "oh no! what have i done! Hashem help me erase the past." and i never heard a response.
finally i started looking forward saying "Hashem i'm leaving the past to you and i'm forgetting all about it. help me have a good future. help me from here and on be the person You want me to be." and that's where i realized Hashem had been waiting to help me all along
