  12. [quote user="sweet 17"]Because, Benjamin, we are British.  So, we don't like living in condos; we prefer our own house with our own gardens and no neighbours below or above us.  We have better sense than to sit in the sun all day, getting skin that looks like boot leather.  We feel guilty if we are contributing to global warming.  We don't like the way Americans talk and generally conduct themselves.  And we have a sort of Protestant mindset that says we need discomfort in life.  Do you need any more reasons?[/quote]   Just remember sweet 17....There are many Americans laying under the Normandy soil that have given you the freedom and choice to do and say that ..
  13.
