Yes that's right folks, get in there with the british questions. Though I tell you now, I have no clue about the offside rule whatsoever, use wikipedia for stuff like that.

To begin I'll pre-empt some questions `

How come all tasty British food is absolutely terrible for the body?
That depends entirely on the state you're in. A Well done kebab is almost repulsive usually, but I'll beg for one when drunk =D. Everything seems to have loads of fat / grease in it nowadays. Although having sampled american chocolate I have to say we win on that one.

Do you walk on the left sides of hallways as well?
Being left-handed I'll usually find myself walking on the right. I found it weird when I was little and was told that americans drive on the right.

Why do all you people talk funny?
There's a wealth of different accents. Of course I don't notice my own, but move just a few hours drive in any direction from where I am (right in the middle) and everybody sounds so stupid =D. Worms World Party is full of Satirical impersonations of most of the British accents. The first time I heard them was lool.

Who's going to win the ashes? Or should I say, how badly are we, Australia, going to beat you this time? =D
Nobody (including me) really cared about the Ashes until we won really. The popularity just skyrocketed as we got closer to the final. All of a sudden, what's-his-name was a national hero =\. You probably would have won the lest one if things like the weather etc. went your way instead of ours.

Why do you call your mothers "mum". I could never get that. MOM sounds much better.
Technically our spelling of it was here first? =P Also like I'd write colour while you'll put color
[colour=blue]omg[/colour]

Why do you gotta have a license to buy and/or use a Television? Its not like you gotta drive the TV to work =p
TV License money goes to the BBC, to make up for the money they would otherwise make through advertisements. And of course to line the government's pockets that little bit thicker. There are no commercials whatsoever on the BBC channels. And on the other channels they're usually only every 15 mins.

What's up with your freaking teeth? I know it's a stereotype, but every British person I've ever known has really bad teeth.
Mine aren't the best ever, even though I usually brush them every day. I have no idea =\. Most of the people I know, their teeth aren't bad. Nobody has anything like a "hollywood smile" though.

I just can't pass up this opportunity. There's a lot I want to know.

What is the working situation like in Europe? For instance, America (I'm sure you know.) has a problem with illegal immigration, and minimum wage just went up in a lot of places (not saying that's bad so you know guys).

What kind of work related stuff is happening over thar?

Also: What's music like? Over here crappy pop and emo punk rock is all the rage. What's popular there? More specifically, who? I've been sort of sucked into this weird, and probably completely baselesss (other than I haven't met a european who doesn't fit this) stereotype that everyone over there is way into house and techno. Just how wrong am I?

There's illegal immigration in the UK but it's nowhere as much of a problem as in the US. Most people are annoyed with the legal immigration, specifically the sheer amount of people the government is letting in. And when they get here, they're helped out with housing, sometimes cars, and almost always jobs. Most people are pissed at all these immigrants coming and taking their jobs, happily working for alot less.

Britain seriously has like, "chav music" now. It's like you have those black rappers going on about how they were born in 'da hood and grew up rough, you literally have chavs rapping (or trying to) about growing up in a council flat in west manchester. Sucks :/ They like a mix of stupid ~10 minutes in FruityLoops happy hardcore and rap / hip hop or whatever you'd like to call it. The rest are either into all the metal stuff or you have the further smaller group of people into just like regular pop =x

Filling up a tank costs around 20 - 30 pounds, depending on the size and cost. Laff @ all you americans getting pissed cause you have to pay a measly $20-30 bucks.

I don't know anybody who's really any patriotic at all. The queen doesn't really even do anything, it's basically the Prime Minister who's at the top; he's like the equivalent of a US President.

I don't like the queen. Sure the monarchy actually meant something hundreds of years ago, but it doesn't anymore.

Well britain is kinda of like America's bitch or whatever at the moment. Which most people don't like. Alot of people are against the iraq war also. Maybe not the war as a whole, but more that we still have all those people over there and won't basically just leave them alone.

In America, (or Texas more specifically) everyone drives a truck or hummer, so our gass adds up to 70-85$ a tank. Nobodoy likes George Bush, but hes atleast getting us gas.

So.. what? That makes it entirely your own fault, for buying an un-necessarily large and unefficient car. It gives you no real justification to complain / pull stupid things like that "NO GAS ON MAY 14TH" thing, when your gas isn't even approaching half of what we pay.

The people that buy those kinds of autos usually know what they're getting into with the gas and can afford it. And trucks in Texas are important in some places. Where I live, mud is everywhere when it rains a lot and it's impossible to get around on poor dirt roads with a car or van. I've gotten stuck in mud twice myself =/ I hate it so much now...

Anyway, is the speed limit where you live (or around your area) about the same in the states for the most part? Country-wise, 'interstate'-wise, city-wise, etc.

I don't like the queen. Sure the monarchy actually meant something hundreds of years ago, but it doesn't anymore.

Another British Angle on the queen...

Officially the queen can sack the prime minister and install her own at any time if she wishes. The only thing she can't do is go into the house of commons and arrest people (thank you King Charles....) or dissolve parliament. After that she can also reject any law at any time by removing her "seal" of approval...she just likes to approve everything because it's easier, and more democratic.

The country may seem democratic, but it's not. It's something between a democracy and a dictatorship...with a very lenient dictator.

The Prime Minister also has more power in England, than the president does over in America, so if we put this into perspective, the Queen is two steps up from the President at least.

(The president needs approval from Congress and the Senate basically in order to get funding for whatever it is the President wishes to do...the prime minister just...does it, and gets "voted" out next election...then voted in two elections later...O.o)

Live in any kind of state run area (council run area in British terms) and there's always some yob or another looking for a fight the moment they get anywhere near a pub let alone getting into them.

It's going to increase ten fold when the smoking ban is put in place on the 1st July.
