Alas. Thus is my creativity constrained by cruel reality, and Golarion forever loses a spark of genius.

Blimey! That is true, but jolly good you noticed your error before the book went into print, eh? That's a strapping fine lad, innit? ;)

(Er, I better stop mangling the Queen's English before I commit some horrible grammatical mistake and draw the ire of our good Captain)

No horrible crimes against the Queen's English have yet been committed by your good self. Jolly good show to recognise limitations of being used to the debased colonial education, though. Carry on.

PS: Don't get too comfy. I've got my eye on you, son.

This is quite correct.


Madam,
Despite appearances to the contrary vis a vis the current government’s craven position, the United Kingdom is most assuredly NOT part of the Colonies, nor shall it ever be while I draw breath.

The letter to the Times (of London, madam!) I shall be writing over this shall be most serious. Most serious, indeed.

Hope you have a good conference

How dare you use facts and reason, sir?! Do you not know that this is the Internet, where such things have no place? I am most disappointed, especially from a fellow of such exalted rank, most disappointed indeed.

Actually in America the definition and usage is basically "stoic/annoyed/not amused".

Once again, proof, if were needed at this point, that Americans, as much as they delude themselves, do not speak English but the bastardised offspring of the great language. My stern letter to the Times over this travesty is being written. Let's see if they print this one!!

This is clearly not true as you have used words to convey your alleged lack of words. Thus you have abused the word 'literally' in what should be, but sadly isn't yet, considered a crime against the English language, and her right-speaking peoples, tantamount to a declaration of war.

If you see a tribal/ethnic/religious conflict in the world, I suggest you look for an Edwardian postbox in the vicinity. Straight lines on a map are another good indicator it might be our fault.

Typical. Blame Britian. Even when it's our fault, the cry goes up, 'blame Britain'. Just because we're to blame is no reason to blame Her Imperial Majesty's Green and Pleasant Land.

Do you keep inventing sports in the hope of winning something or is it that you like former colonies and the Jerrys and Frogs flogging you at them...

For one, such a scandalous statement should at least end with a question mark. However, I know the Australian vocal inflection renders every sentence a question, so you can be somewhat forgiven for not knowing this.

For two, inventing new sports? Which ones did you have in mind, old chap? I don't think the British invented Aussie Rules Football, after all. Have you heard of the term 'projection', by any chance?

Well, getting thumped 4-0 and three of those abject batting collapses will do that to a chap. Hopefully they can recover enough to at least make the final interesting.


Die hard? With a a slovenly 'detective' who can't even be bothered to change his vest? Pish. Compared to the ultimate in Yuletide cinematics that is the Great Escape, despite the ludicrous pandering to the colonials by including Steve McQueen, Die Hard hardly rates half a cracker.

Happy Christmas all.


You have my sympathies. Of course, sending the undesirables to Ausrtalia does have a long and ditinguished precedent.
Also the idea of the wet blamonge that is our current Prime Minister being toughened up by anything, even a country as deadly as Oz, is a little over the top as far as likelihood goes, don't you think, old boy? What's your next suggestion? Ed Milliband seeing a bandwgon and letting it pass unhindered?
Pip pip and do try to do better, lads. WG Grace's bones are becomming awfully fragile, what with all the digging up Igor's had to do to them lately.


Yes, yes, laugh it up, Convict. I can't deny the England team's woeful performance is a disgrace to the country and I firmly hope, and am suggesting in my letter to the Times on this matter, they will be soundly horsewhipped should they dare return to this Sceptered Isle. You just wait until I find that Onyx. IGOR!!!

On the other hand, you're still run by Tony Abbott*. I think England still triumphs, overall.

Sir, I believe that such disreputable abuse of English constitutes cruel and unusual punihsment to those with a properly refined sense of the language. You should be ashamed of yourself, sirrah. As if the regular colonial American debasement of the Queen's English was not sufficient.


Moro,
I believe the words you are scrabbling desperately for are subtle and understated. I understand that not making every little thing blatantly obvious by hanging a neon sign around it shouting out "plot point" or thinking that talking in an obnoxiously loud voice is acceptable in standard conversation may well be somewhat foreign concepts to a blssted colonial American. However, to disparage the realm of Albion for your deficiencies, while understandable, is simply not acceptable. It's a wonder the Times hasn't published one of my strongly-worded letters yet. Nevertheless, you may be honoured to be included in the latest missive.
Pip pip.


Madam,
I believe you hail from the frozen north of Europa? Where rotten fish is considered a delicacy? I would be careful of throwing stones on our ancient culinary traditions from that glass house.

I think the whinging pom, was having an aneurism when came to the realisation that he lives on a dull grey soggy little island of little account. Where as the descendants of convicts exiled by his lot live in an egalitarian sunny paradise.

.........the whine of the engines stops when the plane lands.

So if they live on a dull, gray, soggy little island, it really should come as no surprise that they set out to conquer the world, right?

And succeeded, madam.

As for the scurrilous accusation of typos, I was merely lowering myself to the educational standards to be expected in a benighted hive of scum and villainy, i.e. Australia, so its drunken 'cobbers' could understand me. Good to see it worked.

We let you go for reasons, old chaps and chapesses. We realised America was essentially ungovernable and decided to cut our losses. Why on Earth would we want you back into the fold and let you corrupt our proud and glorious institutions?

It's in linguistic order. Specifically, if you want to talk about tomorrow's date, the usual phrase is "June ninth, 2013" or "the ninth of June, 2013." Not just "ninth June."

Check out Google n-grams if you want numeric proof.

Except Britain, where we use DD/MM/YY. So, apparently, the "entire Englsh-speaking world" doesn't include the English. Which shows the sad decline in standards in the Colonies. My strongly worded letter to the Times is already being drafted.

For an antipodean you do raise a valid point about the lower classes. If only there was a benighted island continent we could send the undesirables to where their descendents could foster their unwarrented delusions of adequacy. Oh, wait a moment, we tried that already. Canberra, indeed.

There is very little 'proper way' in the English language anymore. Take the word color or is it colour? Which is proper? Depends on what your nationality is. English is a fractured language and it is only getting worse.

However, if you think 'proper way' is via D&D, I refer you to the above posters who have shown that XP has been one 'proper way' ever since 1st edition.

- Gauss

Obviously, the 'proper way' is colour. It is the English language, after all, so the English are the ones who determine its spelling, grammer and rules. Naturally, this should apply to everything else given the nation's clear superiority, but sadly some people just will not listen to reason and accept their place as subjects of Her Majesty's glorious Empire.

Despite Media Matters' mutterings to the contrary, Social security meets all the definitions of a Ponzi scheme, including the inevitable crash when there aren't enough new investors. Walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, stands on webbed feet, and has feathers . . . yep, it's a duck.

And it's not just Solyndra. Abound Solar is just the latest green energy company to file bankruptcy after taking taxpayer backed loans. Pat Stryker gave $50k to our president. Nice coincidence. If this were a Republican, the left would be up in arms.

The housing bubble was fueled by artificially low interest rates. Stupidity just added accelerants.

See, I never said "Everything the government does or does not do is a failure." As I said to a previous poster, you should read what I wrote instead of what you think I wrote.

To conclude: Government folly = the idea that the government can run the health insurance industry, given the government's lack of success with financial matters.

This isn't the government, it's America. You really need to come back to the Empire if you want things done right. If you grovel enough, we might accept you back. We, at least, can run a health service (dentistry excepted). Tally ho.
