    Lift, torch, tele, bangers and mash, wanker, heck, catch a Dr Who marathon on BBC or SciFi and you will pretty much absorb all the best slang. At least, most of the London slang.

    I will admit a soft spot for welsh accents. Something just damned sexy about a hot "ginger" with a Welsh accent.

    It is important to note the difference between its and it's but I honestly get them confused sometimes.

    I'm sure that I have forgotten to put the comma in at times...but really, if you can't say "it is", than you shouldn't use "it's".

    Well, it is an apostrophe not a comma.

    Since the Republican talking point of the week has been hypocrisy, I thought it important to point out that when you repeatedly accuse me of trafficing in such, you must place an "e" at the end of the word to call me a hypocrite...

    NOT hypocrit... "E"..."hypocrite"...
