The Brits Only Thread

VersaleanVersalean Member Posts: 751 Mythical
So this is a thread where British people can post whatever they like, and everybody else is 100% forbidden from posting anything at all. There will be a zero-tolerance policy for infringements, which will be summarily dealt with by means of a sternly worded and mildly apologetic passive-aggressive request to please desist from such behaviour in future if you wouldn't awfully mind, accentuated with a deep sigh and a shaking of the finger in the most egregious of cases. If, at the absolute discretion of the OP, even these draconian measures are not quite sufficient to cover the magnitude of the crime, then the response might be escalated to tsk'ing, memes of Shatner, and even withdrawal of dunking* privileges.


*Not a basketball reference. It's a reference to biscuits. What? With gravy? Why the hell would anybody serve biscuits with gravy; are you high? No, no, no, biscuits, dammit. Just google Rich Tea. Sheesh. I'm done here.

    If Scotland requests independence again, will they be removed?

    Who uses Rich Tea for dunking, they really do fall apart the moment they make contact with anything liquid.

    The divine voice of Avechna, the Avenger reverberates powerfully, "Congratulations, Morkarion, you are the Bringer of Death indeed."

    You see Estarra the Eternal shout, "Morkarion is no more! Mourn the mortal! But welcome True Ascendant Karlach, of the Realm of Death!

    If they do, and they are, will there be a shortage of shortbread biscuits?

    Does anyone have any idea what is going on with our government? (Including our government?)

    While I am grateful for the prevalence of digestive biscuits out in the Netherlands, why are there never any Rich Tea, let alone custard creams?

    I work for the British government. I assure you that whatever they're doing is strong and stable.

    Also Hobnobs are the best biscuits.

    Chocolate or normal?
  • DysDys Member Posts: 489 Gifted
    Chocolate. Normal are merely adequate.
  • VersaleanVersalean Member Posts: 751 Mythical
    Those chocolate biscuits by McVities with a thin layer of caramel under the chocolate are the shizznit. You dunk one of those badboys and it's the finest things in life coming together. Now, I agree that rich tea are Not For Dunking, but one of my bros swears by it, but he says only he has the skill to get it just right. The margin for error is smaller than the progress on Brexit.

    Does having British ancestry à la 2 generations back count for inclusion rights here?

    (With the added bonus of living in a country where the Queen is head of state? :) )

    Well, it's tested easily enough:

    You drive through a quiet street, towards a busy junction in your car. Anticipating a long wait, you are thrilled when, the moment you approach, another road user yields to allow you to join the stream of traffic. Do you:

    a) Flash your headlights in 'thanks',
    b) Give a little wave of 'thanks', keeping both hands carefully on the wheel,
    c) Mouth the word 'thanks',
    d) Wait until you're safely ahead of them and flash your hazards in 'thanks',
    e) All of the above, also waving a thank you frantically into the rearview mirror when you're safely ahead of them just in case they didn't see the first four gestures of your gratitude?

    Not a) because in my head this junction is perpendicular to mine and they probably would not see the flashing at the expense of some poor individual on the sidewalk directly ahead suddenly being blinded or wondering who is taking photos in this random suburb.

    So b) but only the first part, because I am a generically-designed human and only posses two hands, resulting in the need to remove one of them from the wheel, combined with c) and d) but only if I thought they didn't see the first two actions because redundancy.

    Do I win?

    Just to be clear, when I said wave I meant the hand flash finger wiggle, with hand still on the wheel.

    Yes. The British people demanded this thread. This thread is taking back control, and will save us 350m credits a week, which will be redirected to the National Artefact Service.

    We demand the National Artefact Service - Artefacts free at the point of use

    Tally ho!

    I was quite upset that HELP ARTEFACTS was a thing, but you had to TELEPORT ARTIFACTS. Moot now that ashop is a thing, but since everything else was artefact friendly having to switch spelling was terribad.

    I'm from the posh side of the British Government where we can afford more than 'Hobnobs'. We have Jaffa Cakes- HARRODS JAFFA CAKES! Thank you very much.

    Jaffa cakes and gravy?

    I'll make my own way out.

    - efficient, powerful tools created by ecologists. It is exactly as Kendra says -- a tool of bones 
    and blood that has been magnified, changed, enchanted. Made into a tool."

    Also, I am first Canadian born off the boat in my family, so you can't tsk me for posting!
  • VersaleanVersalean Member Posts: 751 Mythical
    Fine, fine, fine.

    First generation deserters will be permitted to post without tsk'ing, so long as they agree to the following declarations:

    1) It is right and proper to order FAR too much food at an Indian restaurant, despite the polite counsel of the waiter,
    2) Football is played with your feet. If you are allowed to use your hands, it is not football,
    3) Football is, in all conceivable regards, superior to ice hockey,
    4) The British PM is sexier than the Canadian PM.
