    How cosmopolitan are you?

    A couple of nights ago, I had an evening meal with a friend.
    - We're both English
    - We were in Sweden
    - We went to an Italian restaurant
    - We listened to Spanish music
    - We had a Mexican dish.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    I wonder how accurately an Italian restaurant in Sweden prepares Mexican food? I suppose the music may have done something for the inspiration.

    They probably didn't try too hard because they assumed "What the hell does an Englishman know about good Mexican food or Italian service?"

    Umm... so I lived in England for about a month and had Pizza Express just about every day for the entire time. Does that count for anything?

    LOL - I already "*" it. How demure are you?
    Isn't it about reality, is it?

    In my whole life (and sadly I'm not 18 anymore), I seldomly came across something more ridiciulous than this kind of censorship.

    In which century do you live? For sure not in the 21st.

    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.
