Hey ATS. As usual with my threads, I begin with a note to the mods to move this if in the wrong place
This is not a serious post, I.E I am not striking up a harsh debate. This is an easy, maybe a bit long, but fun read
Okay, so how many people here have heard of a website called The Lad Bible? It's a pretty un-serious website that offers daily doses of Ladness,
humour and other goings on in the world. It's not limited to "Lads" though, my girlfriend and many other girls I know love the website. They also
sometimes post on serious stuff, but mainly to inform and not have an opinion. It's an easy read and kills sometime in the evening if you are looking
for something to have a laugh at.
This morning, whilst having a browse, I came upon a post that was discussing a VERY long but interesting Facebook post from an American who has
recently visited us. And he decided to post a comprehensive list of the differences between the UK and the US. The reasons I find this list worthy of
posting are as follows:
1) My dad immigrated to the US some 20 years ago, he is now a fully fledged and proud American citizen, yet when people ask him the differences
between the US and the UK, he has always found it a little difficult to go deep into the differences (Mainly because there are quite a lot and they
sometimes seem mundane).
2) I have the same problem whenever I go out to visit him
3) People at home ask me the differences, and again, I get the same problem.
So I thought, for some clarity, humour and to get people smiling, that I would post his list here. For the sake of privacy (There is nothing stopping
you from going on the website and finding out who this guy is yourself, as apparently it has gone viral) and the fact I didn't want to break any
rules.. I have hidden the guys name and face.
some of the items on his list do include serious matters, such as guns, health care and the very important topic of putting vinegar on
chips! (British chips). But can we please avoid this turning into a political debate? As most of the threads surrounding guns etc. lately just turn
into a war of worlds and nothing positive ever comes from it.
Anyways, enjoy and tell me your favs!
