    I think JFK's speeches would have been far more effective with a more neutral accent.

    Regional accents/dialects/languages in the US are dying. When my dad was growing up in SW Louisiana, everybody spoke French. Now, very few people do. There used to be tremendous linguistic diversity in the US, sadly that's fading away.

    Pretty soon, we'll all sound like Dan Rather. Now there's a thought.

    Dwarves come from Yorkshire, dammit. Either that or they sound like Brian Blessed.

    Uh? I though they were from Dwarrowdelf/Moria.
    Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph. New: On strenght standards, relationships and structural balance. Shoulder problems? Read this.

    My crapuous vlog and my blog of training, stuff and crap. NEW: Me, Mrs. Macho and our newborn baby.

    New To Weight Training? Get the StrongLifts 5x5 program and Rippetoe's "Starting Strength, 2nd Ed". Wanna build muscle/gain weight? Check this article. My review on Tactical Nutrition here.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    found some interesting stuff:

    http://www.pbs.org/speak/words/

    http://www.npr.org/templates/story/s...toryId=1066744

    in aus the further you go from the city the thicker the accent gets. there are places where a lot of people from the city have a hard time understanding what anyone is saying. there are also words which are used in some states but not in others. for example, before i moved to where i am now i'd never heard "have a chop" - which means have a go. there are also differences in sport taste from area to area.

    If you look carefully at Ordinance Survey maps, you'll find they're actually regions in the Midlands. Coventry in particularly regularly sees titanic battles between the forces of good and evil, usually on a Saturday night.
