        Ah, so that's what nachos look like. That single serving for an American would probably feed about 4 of us Brits

        Cold beer? You actually keep your beer in the fridge? What's wrong with you people???

          To be fair, that looks like a plate that's designed to be shared by everyone at the table. Of course, there are Americans who think it's a single serving...

        And here's where I mention that it's because it takes 4 Brits to equal one American, but then you'd counter with "yeah, around the waist", and really, who could argue with that, so what's the point of saying anything to begin with?


        Cold beer? You actually keep your beer in the fridge? What's wrong with you people???
        Some of us don't have basements to store it in to keep it "cool", so we had to improvise and adapt. Turns out it's actually more refreshing that way... especially when it's 100 degrees (that's 37.7778 degrees to the rest of the world) outside.

        Of course, drowning in your own sweat will probably be another new experience for you - what's a hot day over there - 70 (21.1111) degrees?

          It feeds about 4 normal Americans, too. Nobody actually eats nachos as a meal, it's something to keep busy with when you're drinking beer.

          Q: Why do the British drink beer at room temperature?

          A: Because Lucas makes their refrigerators.

          For those not old enough to remember "British sports cars," Lucas Electric was the company that made the electrical/ignition systems for the majority of the cars over there between the 1940s and 1960s. They had a reputation for not starting, stalling out due to ignition failures, and for flickering headlamps.

            Yup - used to have an MGB. It was, by far, the most mechanically challenged car I've ever owned.

          If it gets above about 75 degrees (Fahrenheit) I start to melt. We're not used to too much sunshine in the UK. There's a reason this is a 'green and pleasant land' - it's always bloody raining!

          I was kidding you about the beer, by the way. There used to be a thing about Londoners liking their beer at room temperature. Not sure if it's true any more. Here in the more civilized north we like it nice and cold from the fridge. Even if it's cold outside. Which it invariably is

            Real beer tastes better when warm. It's one way to tell if a beer is any good - you don't have to freeze your taste buds to tolerate the flavor.

          I live In Texas...Where it gets cold for around 30 minutes a year....Where we are also prone to exaggeration....About everything really....And for some reason I don't know, yet blindly accept, we like eating very hot foods when it's hot outside..[i]Which it invariably is[/i}.

          We do like our beer cold though..

            They don't really need it - the daytime temperature never goes above 70 degrees, so they just toss the beer in the basement and call it good.

              I don't know what goes on in the basement - that's my butler's domain. We all have butlers in England, you know. Even plebs like me have them!

              One thing I do know is that he keeps my cricket bat well-oiled. And that's not a euphemism....

                  Well, they have what are called 'special boys'. No idea what that means. It's a closed shop. But hey, that's England for you
