    I don't need to buy a symbol to show idiots like you that it's sarcasm!

    And really, if you actually live in England then surely you would recognise that we do not have 'really cheap fuel' and so, more than most people, would understand it. I would understand some yank seeing it and not getting the sarcasm as they are not aware of how much fuel costs in the UK.

    Cheer up dude, might never happen.

    I do recognise we don't have cheap fuel hence my comment, what i don't know is your level of intelligence so for all i knew you were a dribbiling moron, i can see you aren't.

    And the sacrasm punctuation mark page was ment as a light hearted comment as any dissagrement has been settled due to the fact you were being sarcastic in the first place, something which is extremely dificult thing to portray online for instance me saying that i can see you're not a dribbiling moron could be complete sarcasm. We'll never know.

    - SuDoku March 6, 2011, 9:16 am
    I thought he talked quite fast. I'm English/Scottish just so you know.
    - zebidybob March 6, 2011, 9:41 am
    I'm North West England, so Lancashire, people talk quite fast round here, so it didn't sound as fast as maybe it would to someone else :P
    - SuDoku March 6, 2011, 9:42 am
    slow down, say that again. :P
    - jakematsui March 6, 2011, 10:23 am
    I'm. North. West. England. So. Lancashire. People. Talk. Quite. Fast. Round. Here. So. It. Didn't. Sound. As. Fast. As. Maybe. It. Would. To. Someone. Else :P

    i think that dialects are fascinating, also how people from the outside alot of times cant tell the different accents apart, for example of a UD one at least, the movie The Town the Ben Afflack movie about the bank robers, (if not its a great movie check it out) Jeremy Renner was nominated for best supporting actor with his "incredible performance" when he did a freaking New York accent when he was supposed to be a Boston native, accent was all wrong and no one cept people from the area noticed
    - Tremp20k March 7, 2011, 10:46 am
    See I will say the accents I know are are the stereotypical 'southern' accent in America and well my teacher's from Boston so her accent. But I assume people in America don't really know the accent I have which is way different from that of someone down south? I may be wrong but that's what I figured.
    - SuDoku March 7, 2011, 2:58 pm
    like i said unless you grew up in that area you wont know the difference its the subtle differences that you only learn from living there, your teacher drops the shit out of her Rs doesnt she
    - Tremp20k March 7, 2011, 3:14 pm
    hmmm I guess I understand.
    - thekitkatkid March 7, 2011, 5:55 pm
    Does mean that I'd think you'd talk really slow...?
    - SuDoku March 8, 2011, 1:21 pm
    well I don't know what your definition of slow is so I can't say, but I could say it's not as fast as the dude in the video.

    and people accuse the US of trying to control the world Britain DID and still holds control over a lot of strategic islands and sea lanes shit if the US and the UK didnt get along so damn well there probably would have been a dozen or so wars for those territories, side note WHY THE FUCK ARE WE STILL IN AFGHANISTAN no freaking oil is worth that damn much and its a landlocked country in the middle of a fucking desert with no strategic value kill the fuckers then get the fuck out seriously we used to be able to handle this sort of shit

    It's all devolution's fault.
    Westminster however, has reserved powers thus ultimate sovereignty even though Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland have their own assemblies.

    Gibraltar is an island, not a city, off the Spanish Coast, and is British territory, and has been for many decades. We're always going to think, screw the Dagos when it comes up.

    It's a peninsula, not an island.
    - MikeyNinja March 6, 2011, 10:12 am
    alright, but it still isn't a city, and it's still british territory
    - Bekenel March 6, 2011, 10:50 am
    There is a city on Gibraltar isn't there?
    - buddyfoeva March 8, 2011, 2:04 am
    Gibraltar is a British overseas territory located on the southern end of the Iberian Peninsula at the entrance of the Mediterranean. It is a peninsula of 6.843 square kilometres (2.642 sq mi) whose isthmus connects to the north with Spain. The Rock of Gibraltar is the major landmark of the region. At its foot is the densely populated city area, home to almost 30,000 Gibraltarians and other nationalities.

    An Anglo-Dutch force captured Gibraltar in 1704 during the War of the Spanish Succession. The territory was subsequently ceded to Britain by Spain under the Treaty of Utrecht in 1713. It became an important base for the British Royal Navy, which drove the local economy and provided employment for a large portion of the local population. Today its economy is based largely on tourism, financial services and shipping.

    The sovereignty of Gibraltar is a major point of contention in Anglo-Spanish relations as Spain asserts a claim to the territory. Gibraltarians resoundingly rejected proposals for Spanish sovereignty in referenda held in 1967 and 2002. Under its 2006 constitution Gibraltar governs its own affairs, though some powers, such as defence and foreign relations, remain the responsibility of the UK Government.
