Please explain how in over ten years of living in shitty "Great" Britain, I've never one heard of this national treasure?
I'm reminded, although only tangenically, about how that faggot "MattM" (how I remember the name is beyond me) went on about "Dimebag Darrel" dying. Who's "Dimebag Darrel"? Exactly. I'll have to Google that one.
He was in Pantera and was shot on stage in 2004.
So MattM was going on and on about how awesome this guy was. Then his girlfriend said, "Why do you keep going on about him? I've never heard you mention him once before he died."
But at least old Dimebag's death was a shock. This Beatles guy was fucking 90 years old. How much longer did they expect him to be around?
It was a slow news day, I guess.
Man, there better be more news in the Legin Nation or this is just going to be an angry rant. Let's check Tinder.
That Australian woman stopped replying about five days ago but she's in Inverness. Not coming to Glasgow until the end of the month, apparently. So who cares? I'll try her again when she's actually here.
Got a few replies from a 24 year old Scottish woman. Says she lives in a "wee village". I'll discuss that later.
Anyway, asked her out and she just ignored it but still replied. So see how it goes. Hasn't asked a single question but always does the emoticon stuff and the ocassional "x".
Also talked to a crazy Scottish Chinese woman for a bit. Then I realised that she didn't ask a single question either so unmatched her.
Got a reply from a legitimate Chinese woman. 21 years old. But again, she doesn't ask anything so I don't know if I'll bother with her.
It's slightly unnatural to ask questions when talking to somebody. When talking to somebody, you're not just firing questions back and forth. But with internet dating, it's what you do to show interest. Somebody people don't understand this. There are always people who are new to this or foreigners with limited English abilities, whatever. But...you have to figure it out. You should be forced to read a guide that sets this sort of stuff out before you can join such sites. It would solve a lot of problems.
So yeah, "wee". The word "small" exists in Scotland. "Tiny" as well. In fact, they have all the synonyms for "small" that are found in the English-speaking world. So why carry on with "wee"? Everyone uses it here. They'll say "wee" for everything that is smaller than average.
I contrast this to "aye". Yes, they say it but not all the time. They do say "yes" and "yeah" as well. In court, you mostly hear "aye" only from the working class and even then, they still say "yes" and "yeah". "Aye" seems decidely informal. Even less so than "yeah".
What else? Wee...oh, "lassie". I only heard that once. Trying to think of the context now. It was in court but...can't remember who said it. Some builder, maybe.
I think that the people are generally alright, though. Haven't encountered any real assholes. Unlike in England then. Some assholes up in there. And I'm just talking about white English people here.
But yeah, Scotland...people are generally friendly. I mean, I'm just going to work so it's people I see on the train and at lunch and obviously at work but still. That was my schedule in London too and I still encountered a good number of assholes.
And the Muslims. I saw one of these dudes with the beard recently. It's an unusual sight in Glasgow, thank fuck. And I saw the natives giving this guy dirty looks. That was good to see.
There's a worrying number of Mohammadans around that area where I'm moving to, though. These people just need to be deported. What's so hard about this? Start with the ones who have citizenship in another country. Then for those are only British, go by where their parents are from and send them back to that country. Or grandparents.
People walking around in headscarves? What is this? Haven't seen the ninjas yet but we're getting there.
