but hes swedish = europe?

Yes Peter Forseberg is Swedish but I was referring more towards the NHL, which I miss seeing live ever so. But since we are on this Swedish kick here you go. Sweden Vs. U.K. As a neutral observer with no bias I will have to say Sweden wins hands down.

At least we Brits only have to buy one seat on an aircraft when travelling, you might well have basketball, 'football' and baseball, but from what I have seen there is little evidence of the majority of our American cousins playing them...unless eating counts as a sport in which case, hands up you are much better at it...
Some people have never been out west. Try, I dare you, to find a fat ass in the Rocky Mountains or on a SoCal beach. America is, geographically speaking, quite a large country with different climates, cultures, and cuisine. The only thing that really makes America uniform is the over presence of corporate trash (walmart, starbucks, applebees, etc).......and police.

Sexy orange-skinned, duck-face attention whores!

I've seen that video so many times, it's just pissing me off now. Somebody has to realise that the UK is actually full of sexy beasts.

Hmmm...touchy...

Anyway, when the wife of the President has to go on national television to teach people how to do a push-up and beg people to eat vegetables you know you have a problem...

Well it has been fun being provocative, and this has been a long thread of generalisations from both sides...

Enjoy a pancake or ten with syrup this morning for me...
Anyway,The OP (Gringo) stared this threat with the lighter side of live(humor)in mind.Me think (know)

Haha! I didn't watch it this time, I can just see the preview and I know what it is. Seems like you get to choose between a load of fake-tanned, silicone-breasted posers, or a bunch of skanky chavs. Get in there!

I can't tell whether your British and mocking American English, or whether your German and mocking the local dialect in Zurich???



as above, I meant the Revolutionary War. we most assuredly did win that one, it's the only war in US history in which I let myself think of "winners" and "losers".

Yes fair play,the traitors with the help of the French won that particular war.

Cocked things up a few years later when 50,000 of you invaded North west British Territories (Canada) though.

The original White House apparently made very good toast.

Surprised Hollywood has`nt made an epic on it yet.

Tootle pip.

i've seen those "Swedish" pics doing the rounds for about the past 10 years.
in that time, i think they've been Slovakian, Latvian, Dutch, Danish, probably Thai and, most ironically, British.

unfortunately, there's little hiding from the fact that the 2nd part of that clip is unmistakeably British.

Who cares where they are from I'd do them all the same, except for the second part.
