yea.  how does that work for you with the swedes? 

 

Well, I don't advertise my Americanism exactly, but my dialect when speaking Swedish gives it away immediately anyway. But I just tell people, when they do confront me (which is rare) about American foriegn policy, that it is not I who makes the decisions about what happens with the nation. If I did it would be a different nation indeed.

What can anyone do?  However, Swedes are generally pretty USA positive in any event so it's not really an issue.

That's pretty much what the Scottish lady from Glascow said.

In any event, spelling??? please.  Who wants a U in Color anyway?

Don't mess with a Glaswegian and never go out drinking with one.
 
Yes no kidding. Not to be made mad. And their allegiance to the Rangers or Celtic can only be called obsessive.  They make shrines.  Odd.

It makes it more colourful. All the US-based designers here on RP are jealous of those of us in the English-speaking world outside the States. Go ahead — ask anyone!

no, don't "google" it, for that would be impossible since it is not a verb.  Look it up on google.
