Anyway, I've said my piece, carry on.

I will say this, the consept; from last Ive heard, of diverse unable to reach cars still in muggy waters is sad. This is a random situation that had no bias, no previous jundgement, and no particular choice of victims. Just as an attachment to such events are the miners who may or may not be alive. I think we are free to think and speak in the way we do, because it wasnt us on that bridge that day nore did we loose a love one but its the human extention that makes me think. In my prospective its as sad as 9/11.

As far as being an ignorant hick, you're living in Alabama, not exactly a place known for bright bulbs.
As to American being a language, you'll have to talk to my collage English Professor, he's the one that suggested it, and I happen to concur. Maybe you can show some similarity between what you speak in that hole you live in and what is spoken in, let's say Maine. Then compare that to what is spoken in East London, and tell me they are the same.
You like to snipe at people bitch, want to come out and play for real?

Yeah I have been to a lot more countries than you think, and came out of it with a helluva lot more cultural awareness than you did, IF you really ever went anywhere like you say.

Your attitude is such a holier than thou arrogant know it all American, you really are the personification of the "Ugly American" that is so well known abroad.

Probably the doctor squeezed the forceps too hard when he pulled you out.

I should ring Deathrattle to call the plod on you.

I agree on this point. I don't expect special treatment simply because I'm a chick. I've got no problem taking shots off anyone because I can dish it all day long.

However, what the hell does that mean? What exactly does it mean to act like a man? I'm supposed to act a certain way? ROFL. Maybe you're speaking 'American' again.....

Laughing at yourself? You need to contact your English professor (or should that be 'American professor'?) and ask for a refund.

Nice try Vonny, but I think it's too late... Reason has long since left the building.

Unfortunately you’re right, probably best to just shut it down, or delete the last two pages.
