The K-man's finest hour(s)


#1079

That whole article was just an excuse to publish the cleavage shot. I don’t think you’re actually supposed to read it.


#1080

And say “breast”

Maybe it means “wafer”


#1081

Only a NT$1,500 fine.

All six were charged with violating Social Order Maintenance Act (社會秩序維護法), for which they each will be fined NT$1,500.


#1082

Why doesn’t K provide the link to the Line group then? Community service.


#1083

Plus an error that spellcheck wouldn’t detect:

“East customer paid NT$2,500 (US$81) for a 50-minute session, with NT$1,500 going to an intermediary and NT$1,000 going to the prostitute.”


#1084

All of his articles are riddled with them. Hence why some question whether or not English is his first language.


#1085

I don’t think so . He is from the USA or Canada :joy:


#1086

He is a Yank.


#1087

No, he’s from Hawaii.


#1088

For people outside the US, a Yank is a Yank is a Yank (as insulting to Southerners or Islanders that may be).


#1089

Only for the British and their former colonies.


#1090

I come from outside the yes, errmm I mean from outside the US, and yes I can confirm that to me a Yank is a Yank. But what is a Yank? New Englander, and mainstream culture. Any other variety of American qualifies only if said person talks like a Yank. We have history class in Nova Zemlya, so we know our stuff.


#1091

Calling all Americans Yanks is cultural appropriation. :sunglasses:


#1092

In its literal form, I take a Yank to mean a White Anglo Saxon Protestant who lives in New England. A Blueblood. A Weld or a Putnam etc.

But to Brits etc., it generally is used to just mean an American.


#1093

To me - a non American English speaker - “Yank” means new Englander, and like I said ‘mainstream culture’ i.e. WASPS and people who are culturally WASPS, (like token black guy)

William Shatner

Hank Williams

Shirley Temple

Arnold Schwarzenegger

Justin Trudeau

Guillermo del Toro

New Englanders like that would definitely all be Yanks – in my book.

Yea, and they wear our basketball hats backwards too… its sadenning


#1094

Shatner’s Canadian.


#1095

OK then, reduce the Yankee list to this:

Hank Williams

Shirley Temple

Arnold Schwarzenegger

Justin Trudeau

Guillermo del Toro


#1096

Schwarzenegger’s from California.


#1097

Ok, Ok:

Hank Williams

Shirley Temple

Justin Trudeau

Guillermo del Toro

Idi Amin

Joseph Stalin


#1098

All of them ain`t Yanks.:joy: Williams was a good ole boy from the South, Shirley was from California, Arnold is a Teuton from Austria, Trudeau is a Catholic as is del Toro.
