Bruce, I think you may have inadvertently offended some of the Americans that are regular posters here.
First of all,DIAH,I'm fairly sure that Protoss is a transplant like Natalie Schiller;though Protoss doesn't like to reveal details about him/herself,and speaks English very very well,he/she occasionally makes the sort of small grammar errors that you find from intelligent folks for whom English wasn't their native tongue.As for 'Trey',I'm almost positive that he is black-American so,as you probably know from the history books,he'd have an excellent perspective on all the vile things that've been done by the U.S. gov. and culture to peoples who didn't belong to the predominate social classes.I'm not aware of any other regular posters who are relevant to your concerns

You were very kind to assert that the cultures were similar---and I doubt that the pinche gringos would return that kindness to you.From what I've learned,Canada hasn't built an empire based on bullying and raping other,militarily-weaker countries.On the contrary,Canada gave their indigenous peoples their own autonomous gov't in Nunavut.In my PERSONAL experience,Canadians aren't the greedy,materialistic types who'd sell a younger sibling to slave traders to get money to buy a sports car.Yes,stereotypes can be dangerous,but they're sometimes based heavily in truth...and I don't know ANY other culture that has such a negative perception for kiddie-pool-shallow avarice as the U.S. does

EDIT: Forgot about 'Jade Fox' in re the regular posters you referred to...cuz she doesn't post nearly as often as some of us others,but she certainly shows herself to be a well-educated person,so I doubt that she'd argue with the facts of history

I cannot spin this is any way to become tennis related .. but this 'Lion loose in Essex' story .. .. However, some of the comments are simply great :

" A lion in Essex...? It's probably just a Golden Retriever with a fake tan and hair extensions.. "

EDIT : Oh this is really disappointing. The 'lion' search has been called off ... What a shame. Maybe the involved 30 police officers, marksmen and two helicopters could continue the search up in Scotland?

This next one is a TRUE story: Was driving along a country road en route to a veterinary clinic where I delivered the payroll.This was in the U.S. state called Maryland that's just north of Washington,D.C.(Virginia is to the south).Suddenly,I saw a mountain lion(a.k.a. cougar,puma and a few colloquial terms) run across the road.For a few moments,I questioned my sanity b/c mountain lions had long since been hunted out of that area(you can find them more plentifully as you head south and westward from there).However,my eyes couldn't have been lying to me cuz I caught a GOOD look at the animal....When I arrived at the vet clinic,I risked ridicule by asking one of the nurses if mountain lions ever straggled up hundreds of miles,and she explained that wealthier marijuana farmers uses them as 'guard dogs' and that the one I saw must have escaped from its chain.Of course,it's illegal to have a mountain lion as a pet in MOST states in the U.S. but,the owner was a marijuana farmer,so wtf would you expect???

^ I can believe that. I also saw 'The Hangover', so I know that Mike Tyson keeps a pet tiger in his house in Vegas ...

A transplant? Heh. Nope, I was born in the US.

I don't pay a lot of attention to grammar on here but whether to use a comma does sometimes confuse me.

I saw The Expendibles 2 this weekend. I thought it was pretty good.

My favorite movie I've seen this year is the Dark Knight Rises.

Well,I just can't believe you talked about yourself;previously,you wouldn't even answer another poster who asked if you were male or female

Re: On the Concept of Irony w/ Continual Reference to Caro, the #1 Sunshine Queen

Am a little disappointed that Kim couldn't end her career with a more remarkable result,but that's tempered by the fact that I and the rest of the world can see how much Kim loves motherhood

Re: On the Concept of Irony w/ Continual Reference to Caro, the #1 Sunshine Queen

I suck at betting! From now on I will only bet on Caro matches, of course I'll bet on her losing! It's almost a win-win situation, if she loses I'll make some cash, if I lose money, that will mean Caro's won() a match!

So if Errani says she WILL stop working with Del Moral, yet he is banned for life with a life ban for anyone working with him.... Why is she she still playing?

If she HAS cheated,then it hasn't been effective enough to win her even ONE Premier singles title,so perhaps there's some poetic justice in that
