    My husband lived a year in London before I met him. He had a female friend named Randy, who sometimes wore a tshirt with her name in rhinestones across the front.

    Needless to say, she had no trouble picking up the boys while wearing that shirt.

    Ouch. I know as well as anyone that Americans abroad can be *******s, but I can't decide if this site is funny or just really, really bitter.

    read through the brookview site - fantastic! sent my american friend the site to go to>>>>>>>> hilarity in the extreme

    particularly the food and drink - as an ex dart/pool playing barmaid, well I Laughed, I Laughed, I Laughed,
    then I thought Oh dear, somebody might actually do this one day.

    Can you imagine the chaos this would cause if someone took this site serious?

    I can feel a research project coming on!
  11. by   Good_Queen_Bess
    Now would that be quantitive or qualitative research? :zzzzz
  12. by   Whisper
    I was thinking quantative, but best to be thorough, I'll check my book(; Blowing dust off of reasearch book trying very hard not to sneeze!)

    I now think It would be ethically wrong to try this on unsuspecting Americans, I don't have to time to write the proposal!

    :stone Am I alone in thinking that the brookview site is not all that funny. Indeed, it is quite offensive in places.
