simplicimus: letrole: just tried to read it, and frankly couldn't be botheredGood choice. Article goes nowhere.
Mr. Coffee Nerves: I was in London in 2012 and the people there couldn't have been nicer -- especially when I let them know that we saved their asses back in the big one so how about that ice cold Budweiser NOW!
narkor: Faded empires a prone to introspection. The current top dog prone to extroversion. The first half of the 21st century will be a period of American introspection and Chinese extroversion, just as the latter half of the 20th was American extroversion and British introspection.
tshauk: I think we just found the British Dennis Miller.
BronyMedic: Do the British tell lies about the American Healthcare system like their for-profit cousins across the pond do about them?
reillan: You know what the Americans think of the British?"Keep pouring out your Potter and Who, we love that shiat."/Of course, they also produced Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock, so they're not all bad.

meanmutton: BronyMedic: Do the British tell lies about the American Healthcare system like their for-profit cousins across the pond do about them?Normally, they're the same lies that the left bandits about regarding ours: the idea that our hospitals are largely for-profit or that the US isn't one of the top countries in per capita government spending on healthcare.

ScudEast: Basically, yes. Here it is a common belief that if you get run over by a car in the USA the ambulance paramedics check your wallet for a health insurance card and if you don't have one they move you out of the middle of the road and leave you there to die.
kenchie: Will Self is a pretentious arsehole.
Land Ark: Mr. Self, would you please GET TO THE BLOODY POINT.
oukewldave: Well, that was a really fancy article about nothing. Sounded like the writer just discovered he can find synonyms by right clicking on the word document.
