I think the 'blowing off' thing may be more area specific as opposed to British in general...

There you all go, tarring all Brits with the same brush as usual... 'Oh I love the British accent' ... foreigners ;)

You know, there is a lot of animosity I feel, from the British people towards Americans, not necessarily from #1's comment, but in general. I'm not sure why y'all don't like us Americans.

89- how do you know op was American? it just said that he moved to England, he never said where from. And by the way, no one likes America because they're jealous;)

I'm Irish, living in America and have seen and experienced both sides. I have to say that America brings the animosity upon itself. And living here, I sometimes have to stop myself from telling people to take their heads out of their ass.
If Americans could admit that they are no better than anyone else, then the world would like them much much more. Alas, I don't think they can. :(

123, I can admit that other countries have better features than the US , like the dutch who graduate high school knowing what, 4 languages, and smoke pot. Us americans generally only know one or two. Anti-nationalism is stupid.

I don't mean this in a rude way, well fuck it I do... But if you don't like America, DON'T listen to our music, DON'T watch out TV shows, DON'T watch our movies, DON'T follow our celebrities, DON'T drive our cars, DON'T eat our food ect. Hell, all the things Americans invented? Don't fucking touch them. Get off the damn Internet because that was created at Stamford and UCLA... In America. Stop watching TV... Because that was invented in America. Turn your lights off... Because that was invented in America. Shit, I could go on and on and on with this list. Don't play the two-sided coin, the one side hating America, and Americans, and the other side, enjoying EVERYTHING that this country has done for the world.

ACTUALLY 152, CERN did not 'invent' the Internet, the Internet was created when ARPANET was set up between UCLA and Stamford University, and they attempted to send the message login, and it crashed at the G. Those are universities in the United States. And as for you, 151, do elaborate on how the world works please? I didn't know that there was an answer to that. Might I remind you that in the late 1700's, we beat your fucking asses, in a war where we were greatly out gunned, greatly out manned, and greatly lacking in funds. Sucks to suck, but feel free to take your entitlement elsewhere ass-clown.

You know what sucks. I moved from England to Australia when I was six and now unless I move back very soon I'm stuck with a horrible accent that I'll never get rid of. On the plus side I know a bit of cockney and pronounce things differently so no- one knows what I'm even talking about. Ps Australians stole all their pronunciations from USA!

  a_nutritionist  |  10

might i remind you that australia wasnt founded until 1770, so not only would i not expect a recently colonised country to stand any ground in a war, but there wasnt one we were involved in to my knowledge. that aside, all australians come from diverse backgrounds, so to assume the british are the homeland of all descendants is fucking stupid. now feel free to stop pretending the wars won by some bunch of idiots in any way determines the quality of a country, cos im sorry but most people outgrow the pissing contest bullshit at some time in their lives, apparently some later than others.

  a_nutritionist  |  10

@157 i do so despise the attachment some idiots have to a homeland that they have no connection to. you moved here when you were 6, you have no concept of living outside of this country and therefore havent the knowledge to claim one is better than the other. im aware australia has many flaws, but im not going around claiming my background is better just because i live in a fantasy world. feel free to have a preference for another country when youve lived there, but even that isnt a justification for fact.

America's amazing and I thank it for the many inventions that I use everyday. But seriously, that self righteous, "i don't know why you have a problem with us" attitude is probably the main reason why people don't like Americans.

  bioboy725  |  10

1. psychological problems
2. person sleeping with your significant other
3. that person just really pisses you off
4. self defense
5. for the sake of comedy
6. someone is trying to fart and kill you

who says blow off? I heard blow up and I'm about to blow or hell even blow chunks but I have never heard blow off at all let alone as a replacement for blow up

  DerpyHooves  |  0

I'm American, but I don't know what that means. Blow off does mean ignore, but they're using it in a context I've never seen. It might be a regional thing (in America).

  monnanon  |  13

maybe its a regional thing because ive never heard it where I am from (scotland) not from anyone. Im not saying its not used because obviously it is but its probably not a whole UK thing.

  Kinder93_fml  |  3

I'm British too and I've never heard it, but yeah seems like a regional thing to me..
I always thought "blow off" meant to ignore. Whatever, in OP's situation it was pretty funny.

  Enslaved  |  36

I've heard of "blowing off" work/ a person etc... Which means to avoid something/someone. But blowing someone off can sounds a little on the kinky side too.:P

  perdix  |  29

See what you started, Kicky! I hope you're happy.

divine, don't think you can copy ikickgingers "I got nothing" motif and start racking up massive thumbs. She can do it because she's special.

As in Olympics ;)

When you get angry, you should go outside and smoke a fag.

Here in the States, that would mean "to fellate a homosexual man," so I am assuming it means something different in the UK. If not, I'll have to learn to control my temper before I visit England.

  zfrt  |  3

No, I'm pretty sure in Canada we just say "I'm gonna smoke a joint". It doesn't matter who hears, because here on the West Coast (BC) the shits practically legal!

In the UK, we also eat faggots* and they're delicious. We also burn them.**

*faggot: a ball of pork offal.

** faggot can also mean bundle of sticks used for kindling. Or you gave your pork offal ball to a terrible cook, FYL.
