    Can't you see?

    I'm trying to KILL this thread...

    I'll feed it twinkee's and Spam and Oreo's until it is so clogged with colesteral that it can't drag a hoseline in the heat without getting dizzy and having a heart attack at which point it will meet "the kings" Elvis and Gerry Garcia...


    You guys look good for your age... I'd never have guessed you are any more than 29...

    What is a "bloke" anyway?

    And I was called a "bloody comedian" once and didn't know
    what to think!

    Could someone translate, please?

    From wikipedia:

    "Bloke" is a slang term for "man," much like "guy" or "dude." It is primarily used in Britain, Australia and New Zealand, and is believed to derive from Shelta.

    Australasian Significance

    While the term technically only means "man", the word "bloke" has been adopted into Australasian culture to mean substantially more than that.

    "Blokey" culture is the stereotypically masculine culture found outside of the metropolitan areas of Australia and New Zealand, the culture in which hard work, loyalty and not showing emotion are all valuable attributes.

    Did someone ask you if you thought you were a "Bloody Comedian"? They were probably ready to punch you in the nose if it was a question...

    "No Bloody way" or "Bloody Hell" are sometimes heard from UK immigrants to Canada... they have a way of rubbing off if you spend too much time with them.

    What the hell are you all talking about?


    BTW, I'm 41 also. Seems to be a good age in this crowd.

    I think I need to explain some rules to this thread. See below.






















    Gotcha!

    bloke n. pron. "blowk" (English); "bloke" (the rest of us). The closest American equivalent is guy, and it is pretty close. A bloke is a joe public, a random punter - any old guy off the street. Where it differs from guy is that it can't apply to your friends. You can't walk up to a group of your mates and say "Hi blokes, what's up?", as they'd all peer at you as if you'd been reading some strange cross-channel dictionary. The most common usage of the word bloke is almost definitely in the phrase "some bloke in the pub".

    Unhappy

    I think it is a conspiracy too. The webteam isnt in control anymore. The forum gremlins that always delete our location are in control. The new forum layout is just an attempt to control our minds...
