DC- wasn't aware of that one. I've only been to Georgetown, and while I do recall that there was a subway system further in towards the capitol, I never had a need to use it. I was kinda thinking that in London the term "underground" is more popular.

And c'mon. I break out the Olde English for you guys, but in daily life I do still say y'all- a throwback to my southern upbringing.

Who's up for whipping a few shitties and then perhaps we'll go for a spot of tea?

Doughnuts, cookies, ********, we used them all back in high school.

On the second one, we have them. We always called them just drive throughs, so I guess "F" is exactly correct. And, Nebraska IS pretty much exactly a redneck bumfuck state.

Oh, yeah. Duh. It's hard for me to keep all the various Northern California cities straight... LA, SF, SJ all a bunch of noisy, congested shitholes with bad weather.

Bonus- who knows what MARTA really stands for?

Nah, I don't buy that one at all. The City is always NYC- it's where Network Ops is located.
