    [FAILURE] This is a serious thread

    Since having [SERIOUS] in a Chit Chat thread is an automatic failure, why not admit it? This thread will not be a failure. In this thread several things must happen:
    • NoteMe writes perfect English.
    • RobDog888 writes even better English than NoteMe.
    • My level of English is worst level of English you'll ever see in this thread.
    • mendhak admits he has only two eyes.
    • There will be no jokes or lame jokes in this thread.
    • MartinLiss confirms all this is true on April 1st 2007.
    • George W. Bush visits this thread and confirms MartinLiss is correct.
    • The only browser used to view this thread is Firefox, because any other browser causes The Blue Screen of Death (even on Linux and Mac) for a reason anyone can't explain.
    • Jacob Roman converts a straight employed male programmer to an unemployed transvestite loser

    List updated to match wishes

    I feel like an idiot already, but that's nothing new on Chit Chat

    I am no english major, but wouldn't that be: "Here we go; Perfect English."?

    Otherwise it would be viewed as a sentence fragment, I think.

    A fragmented sentance is one of those annoying things which no one knows the meaning of and you acan never get rid of. Bit like offside in football.

    Ohhh... Offsides in football; I can never figure that one out. I bought Fifa for XBox360 and yeah. I have no idea what I'm doing.

    It's still not as confusing as "Icing" in hockey. I think that's just a penalty they randomly throw out to coerce the players into fighting.

    "Here we go. This is perfect English."
    Perfect is an adjetive, not a noun. The sentence was missing a subject.

    Dude icing is when it goes past 2 lines consecutively without being touched (the center and opposing defense line).

    Offsides means you were in front of the last defender in soccer and got the ball passed near you.

    I think most of the people in the world don't even want to be American, because everyone knows Americans are... much like their current president


    They actually made a geography test lately and a lot of people had problems finding Iran, Indonesia and Israel from the world map. Even though each of these countries is rather important to US at the moment I'm too lazy to look for an English language article about it.


    Aww darn, I think I've just failed #5 myself as well.

    I'm one of them. I can't even tell you the difference between the UK and England. For all I know, the only difference could be that the UK includes France.

    You couldnt be more wrong!

    Did you not watch any news over the past couple of days? We had over a million people marching in the streets for immigrant rights to become leagal citizens of the USA. Why do so many thousands flock to the USA for a better life? We have the highest amount of immigrant traffic coming into the USA then all other countries in the world combined!

    But I do agree. It's pretty sweet over here.

    That just means you have problems accepting people as legal citizens Or leaky system on preventing people getting in illegally. But basically, wasn't US born right on that, on promising "come here, get better life", hasn't this been going on since the 18th Century? What I quickly read off of Wikipedia, this is the case. There is nothing new on people getting there as it is practically the only country in the world asking for it.

    The original plan was BYOB and we'd provide the finger food.. Then people started asking for B, and we were like "BYO, yo." They didn't listen and pretty soon we ran completely out. That was when prohibition started. After a few years of that, we decided you have to BB otherwise you don't get in the party.

    Don't ask for trouble. I think I'll never get a job just to save myself of the truthful claims of the all powerful First Post.
