    Default heres a silly question regarding the British posters

    Im so used to chatting with ya that I forget that half of you are Brits.. I speak with an american accent so I assume everybody would as well.. but in person, you guys speak with a British accent like in those james bond movies yea?

    That's a trip.. if u guys met with us american posters, how would u guys greet... like hi mate?

    How many of you speak with a British accent. I know its a stupid fuckin question but id like to know how many of u sound like Daniel Craig.. I love the british accent btw.. it sounds very sophisticated

    Its a pretty varied accent. You do get some 'James Bond' types but nowadays they definitely aren't the norm. You also got the cockney (London) accent and close relations to it, 'cor blimey guv'nor' (if that makes any sense to you!) and all that. There are dozens of regional accents too which are all really different, so much so that some southerners have difficulty understanding a Geordie (someone from Newcastle). Hmm, this is too hard to give a good explanation in the written word, I will find some vids later.
    Personally, despite being born up north, I have a pretty neutral accent, like a much less posh James Bond, haha.

    Like Ryanman says, the UK is a wide spectrum of accent variation. I also think I am quite neutral. MarkTKO thinks I sound American, but he sounds a bit like Jimmy Saville.

    I have a northwestern uk accent , but it isn't a very strong one , most Americans think my wife and I are Australian ! Which is kinda strange , we are in America now and they all say wow I love your accent ,but have to ask where you are from lol

    The regional accents are really varied, Im from Bristol living in the midlands and after 3 years of living here I still struggle to understand everything Many young people in cities don't talk with the traditional accents anymore but a new dialect called 'Jafrican' which is a mixture of lots of culture, someone who speaks like that is rapper Dizzee Rascal.

    You were watching me and your mom play her favorite game "Dirty slut swallows Big Ben" huh? You see how I be making her eyes bulge out? Have her looking like Arnold in Total Recall

    Anyway I met up with former poster Leftylee when he came to Los Angeles. I couldn't understand half the shit he was saying his accent was so thick. And don't you muthafukkas get sun over there? Cuz homeboy was pasty white. Like Ricky Hatton

    I am also intrigued by cunt, by which I mean the frequent use of it on the forum. Miles has called me a cunt a number of times and I find it odd as you never hear that in this state's. I'm not singling out Miles, just using that as a reference point. I see cunt being a regular up in this piece. We use the word douche bag as a derogatory name but not cunt. I would like to add it to the American lexicon but I fear it shall be too great of a task.

    So, can you enlighten an American on cunt. Does it describe a certain aspect of stupidity or is it all inlusive
