I believe its called soccer because it's, association football as apposed to to NFL.

Please try not generalise about about the size of American brains.

it always tickles me when people from other countries think that the US is only inhabited by stupid people.

the reason that it tickles me is because generalizing 300 million people is so incredibly fucking stupid. :wink:

We think that because by and large its the stupid ones we have to deal with (in person at least. On the internet, the fact that the smart people are on the other side of the Atlantic is less of a problem)

And it always tickles me that everyone from everywhere else think that we Brits just sit around all day drinking tea, saying stuff like "smashing" and "cad" and inventing sports that we suck at

EDIT: Though I do admit that they have a point with the last bit

Generalizations tend to be on the duller side of the sword of doom. You know? The side that kills you. Also, 300 million? I had the count at 250 million last time...either way, that's a lotta people. All with their different hopes and dreams and so on and so forth.

Have to admit, that's pretty cool.
