    yeah, well at least REAL football is played by real men hwo use there feet to kick a ball around...... unlike those yank pansies who cover them selfes with more protection than a condom factory!!!

    *And* we dont try to make rounders sound sa real grown ups game...... cos it isn;t

    by the way, aluminium is pronounced "al oo min eeum" cos theres an "I" neer the end! not "al oo min um"

    oh, ps. we call them crips..... cos their crispy! And as for sports...... cricket *is* the most boring game on earth! and only god knows the rules to it!

    hey it is aluminum-- check it...

    hey just as a note- figured i'd be an arse in here, for i've had this conversation about aluminum with an english chap that worked here with me at a boy scout camp during the summer--- here is a web site that proves aluminum is pronounced al oo min um, for it is spelled that way. Here's the proof - directly out of the periodic table of the elements:

    http://chemlab.pc.maricopa.edu/periodic/Al.html

    make sure you notice that it has no I in the end such as: alumin( I )um, but instead is spelled aluminum (notice no I) therefore, no EEEEEum sound. Thank you (*stick* - in the side that is).
    -please do not mess with the incredible radioactive super-fish... thank you.

    nothing wrong with a nice o tea! And as for Anne Robinson.... on behalf of my country i'd like to applogise! But then again, you gave us Riki lake, Jerry Springer, and McDoanlds! (who really used to be a scottish clan! but were kicked out of Scotland... over a row about food would you bieve it?)

    Ona more serious note..... You also made the film U571..... which ought to have been banned. but hey! thats hollywood for ya! why let the truth get in the way of a good story

    Despite what Americans believe, cricket is not our favourite sport. It's football (real football, with a BALL[spherical] KICKED by FEET). Cricket is a boring pile of **** to watch, but quite fun to play.

    Hey dont worry. Us scots dont hold a grudge.... well, except against those Midlanders when it comes to flamming Iain, feel free! lol

    Scotlan gave th world Golf, Haggis (the only food worse than anything from Mcdonalds, but at least there is some meat in a Haggis!). Also, most ministers in england are scottish.

    And if i remember rightly, Dr Bell was the inspriation for Sherlock Holmes was he not?

    I'll tell you one other thing that u scots are responsible for:
    The perpuation of bag pipes.
    (And i do know it was origionally the Irish who came up with that great instrument, but they got rid of it. Why can't you???)

    Two things,
    A canadian invented the telephone (Alexander Graham Bell)
    Govt, about the eficiency of the imperial measurement system:
    is it easier to write 1 nm (nanometer (10^-9 m)) or
    3.93701 * 10^-8 inches?
    or 1/25399986 th of an inch?

    Completely easier to do the latter. I'm right, you're wrong.

    Is it easier to write 1 inch, or 2.54 cm?

    (jeez, people, don't take me seriously)

    Canadians take the best (or worst) from both.

    My car has a 4.3 Litre engine, does 0 - 60 mph in 8.5sec. gets 18 miles per gallon, speed limit on highways is 100 kilometers/hour. gas is 60 cents/litre. My tires are 265 millimeters wide, on 15 inch rims... it goes on and on like this

    And that's not confusing at all to you?

    I guess we have sort of the same thing...

    My car has a 3.1 liter (notice the spelling of liter... it's pronounced lee-ter, not lee-tray.. it should be spelling accordingly) engine and goes 0-60mph in some amount of time... etc., etc....
