a boring post

this is very boring

ive heard alot of LGBTQ americans claim that they're was never a good LGBTQ singer ever, fucking look across the pond we had Freddy Mercury he died but he was still awesome openly gay during a time when it was a bit taboo and i love that Brits got shocked when the rumors spread about him, he did a say called "want to break free" which was basically all about gayness and we still had no clue.

also i wonder if ill ever Come Out of the Bush, Blood Bath & Stable to people, its for some reason harder to do than coming out.

i wonder do you Americans have British news on your news programme's? i mean our country is so boring its a slow news day almost every day so we do American News, i mean here we sometimes hear on BBC "breaking news about Obama" i can't not laugh if you americans have "breaking news about Nick Clegg"

i think England doesn't want Scotland to leave because we'll join the Nordics and be friends with them, while they can't, Just Estonia in the corner forever alone.

not if you interview LGBT people and sort of a LGBT journalist

jeff's picture

Usually...

it flips the other way. I encounter interesting people, find out they're gay, and then I interview them.

still jeff

come on jeff you seek these people out :P

jeff's picture

But it's backwards...

I find them, and then I seek them out for an interview. I am not on the lookout for interview subjects.

its so awesome

my favorites are Finland (for the expressionless face) & Denmark (because hes always horny)

Hmm...

I often don't even know what nationalities musicians are - or other entertainers, for that matter. Like I had no idea that Freddie Mercury was British until you said that.

I don't watch the news - and very rarely even read it - but I don't think we ever get breaking news about Nick Clegg. Yesterday my roommate and I watched Bob Hale's report on Scotland... which has nothing to do with anything you were talking about, except Scotland leaving.

Tycoondashkid's picture

yep he was a Brit

Nick Clegg was hated by Scotland slammed with nearly no Scottish Votes the Lib Dems suck in Britain. he just has power because the Conseratives made a coalation (only in Britain could Conseratives and Liberals Join forces to fuck all our lives up) with out a vote from the public.
but it was more or less a Joke

if Scotland Leaves will would be a rich nation and at the same time screw up England's national income, since we have the Oil, a massive supply of coal, a expanding fishing industry, a culture, friendly relations with the Nordics, Canadians & French as well as booming industrial and agricultural fields.
we rock

just sayin'

kilts and badassery and sexy accents!
Terrible food, though, from what I've heard....

Tycoondashkid's picture

hey

Shepard's pies are good >:(, i will admit it would be horrible to a vegetarian or someone with a weak stomach its tough, meaty and better if you don't know whats in it

and we also invented the TV, Phone, Bike, Steam Engine, Gas Lights, Wave Power, Modern Stamps, Radar, eBook, fossil fuel technology, fridges, flushing toilets, modern lawnmowers, electric clocks, colour cameras etc

revoloutionised aircraft, military strategy, ships, medical science, agriculture & Industrial

made the higgs boson theory, popularized the decimal point, grouped the noble gases etc

even invented a ton of sports, Shot Put, Hammer through, Curling, Handball, Cycling, Golf, shinty & sevens rugby.

hell we even invented the Royal Bank of England and the Bank of France

anarchist's picture

Hm.

For some reason I thought that handball was invented in Lithuania.

MacAvity's picture

Really?

Please tell me what Scotsman invented the flush toilet - that has got to be one of the greatest inventions of all time!

Shepherd's pie is pretty good, actually. I concede.

what about Scottish Drinks like Red Kola, Whisky, Scotch Irn Bru?

LOL bet your free university

LOL bet your free university tuition would halt pretty quickly. And yup, I am bitter about that. Scottish kids get a free education while people in the same country get their fees tripled. Reeeeally fair.

I don't know why the Scotland thing pisses me off so much. We get it, you're Scottish, the English are inherantly bad. Never mind that Scottish parliament gets to vote on English legislature, while the opposite isn't true.

Oh noo, you're all opressed.

Y'know, I'm supportive of Scotland doing whatever they want in terms of becoming a sovereign nation, that's democracy. I don't appreciate all the English bashing that comes with it.

Tycoondashkid's picture

well stillgotlegs

the free uni would still be open Scotland would make even more money soveign and England would lose alot of money 41% of the UK's money is from Scotland.

the scottish parliament does not have a say in the english parliament

stillgotlegs's picture

The Welsh assembly, Northern

The Welsh assembly, Northern Irish and Scottish parliaments all have votes for English legislature, while the English parliament has no votes for any legislature of each of those.

Hence why members of Scottish parliament could vote for the rise of tuition fees in England, while keeping them at zero in Scotland.

And figures such as 41% of GDP are misleading because they don't take into account expenditure for the UK on Scotland. Sure, revenue will go down, but it stands to reason that costs will too.

remember though Scotland has almost all the oil which is in the north sea which will be in Scots water as well as a majority of the Coal and Fresh water and farms as well as most Steel mills which England will have to build more to keep up with Demand unless a trade agreement is met but i see that as likely.

what if other nations take a leaf from the Scots books and Wales for example tries to become independent.

what about the Nukes? they are in Scottish Borders meaning that they can stay hear or England will have to spend a Crap ton getting them and building launch facilities for them.

and the Army, RAF & Navy? will the Scots get all the Scottish Battalions, Divisions etc?

but if Scotland becomes independant England will have a reason not to accept our money, BTW thats fucking annoying England won't let us use Scottish Notes, its still BRITISH Currency.

Lmaao, I love Scottish

Lmaao, I love Scottish currency XD

“Why do you sit there looking like an envelope without any address on it?”

Tycoondashkid's picture

but why is it not accepted?

its the same as Texa's not accepting money for California the now

LOL Michael MacIntyre is awesome XD

stillgotlegs's picture

It is possible

you just have to force the supermarkets into it. Interestingly enough, the self-service checkouts down at Morrissons accept em fine.

It's interesting it's not the other way around though, I was fine using English money in Glasgow.

And yeah, he's awesome xD

Tycoondashkid's picture

not all the time

but i would like to give a homless english guy a scots fiver and ask him to "try to spend that pal"

2 reasons though, 1: we don't care its money everyone likes money even the Glaswegians love money, just like bacon everyone loves bacon even the vegetarians love back

2: Glasgow is full of poor people they will take any money you give em

Yikes...

This is nearly too much Scotland onanism to handle. Once we start praising UK cuisine, you know things have gone too far...

Both Jeff and anarchist...

...have come up with cute euphemisms in the last couple days.

Which revives a long standing question I've had: Did Charles Dickens promote the character "Master Bates" (Oliver Twist) with intentional tongue-in-cheek?

Tycoondashkid's picture

if you don't like british food

don't eat Biscuits, Cookies, Crisps (or as you call them Chips for some odd reason), Mashed & Boiled Potatoes, Fish & Chips, Sausages, all good types of soap etc

jeff's picture

hehehe...

This list is proving my point. You're claiming boiled potatoes with cultural pride as cuisine? ;-)

We don't call them chips, either. We call them fries, or french fries.

techniclay there is no British culture

they're Seperate cultures for the Seperate Nations (Scotland, England, Wales & Northern Ireland) and Scotlands food is better than the English Food http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scottish_food
