Nah, I'm an Aussie that works for a US company in Asia...., I'm more confused than anything.

 

I actually have a T-shirt that a friend made that says UNAUSTRALIAN. True story!

 

 

 

As for the US accents, only if you come from say Tennessee, Brooklyn or East Texas will it be anything different than what we see on the TV every night. The US accent is so ubiquitous that it barely raises an eyelid these days. Most you'll get is some dumb arse left winger abusing you for ruining the world with your evil foreign policies and stupid shit like that.

To anyone not from the US:

 

When we go over there as exchange students or some shit that isn't tourism do people trip balls over our accents? Over here (where I am situated at least) when an English kid comes over it's a kind of a big todo. I feel like it would be less exciting if one of us went over there.

 

 

 

well i dont know where ur from but bitches in the US are feeling aussie accents, english accents they would feel but them dudes say "cunt" alot (which i think is awsome), but to women in the US its literally the WORST word you can say, no joke. i think its hillarious, my mom married some dude from london and dude says cunt, drives her nuts

Ah, actually the normal bobby in England doesn't carry a gun (unless things have changed int he last couple of months). They have flying squads that are armed that react to armed emergencies.

 

The cops here don't carry guns either. They have the special police, which you see semi-regularly anyway that cary guns. But right now due to the Oct.1 anniversary there are soldiers walking the streets with fucking bayonets fixed!!

It is like that Theo, just watch Flight of the Concords to see how Aussies think of Kiwis (from the Kiwi perspective as well).

So when are the Euros going to answer why their drinks are always warm, I asked that a few times in Europe and only drew blank stares then I tried to convince them how much better drinks taste Ice cold.

 

And to the Swedish people on here, are there really no ugly girls there?

yea in general cops don't carry guns in the UK, but if you pull some serious shit then the police are there with guns, they haveplaenty of access to them, just don't carry them as standard equipment.

 

there are divisions in the police force that specialize in guns so if the shit goes down they get called.

there has recently been a bit of a resurgence of trouble in Ireland, not any major bombing campaigns or anything like that but I have read about quite a few killings recently

for anybody who has been to australia and united states...

 

they say when you flush your toilets it spins the opposite way as the us, have any of you actually experienced this? I also heard when dogs walk in circles to lay down or take a shit they spin in opposites also.

 

thanks in advance

The US has a very wide range of accents varying by region. There's even some small towns that still speak dialects of English from the colonial days where their convict ancestors were placed. Im probably wrong, but I don't think I've ever heard any variances in a British or Aussie accent. Most Americans who aren't the type to be hung up on people's accent or any other thing that makes them different don't even acknowledge that the person is from another country, especially if they are speaking English. When other Europeans come over who have been taught the Queen's English, there are differences in the words they use that Americans bug out over. For example, calling pants 'trousers', shit like that.

I don't really understand the conformist culture question... Why would we want to be wiggers or emo's? I'm happy with being an everyday person without the label attached.

 

I think for the most part Aussies consider those people try hards... Nobody wants to be a try hard.

 

** We do have varying accents and slang. Not wildly varying though.

 

Not as much as say a new yawker and someone from texas.
