    My grandparents were English - both sides of the family. As nearly a wet back, I've assumed American ways. Gassy beer is part of the culture, and we know where that leads.

    Yeah, that is what is bizarre too, men who could be seriously hurt and other men laughing their heads off (doubling over with laughing fits).
    Former military man (and now babysitter of Donald Trump) John Kelly, is a big loud lying empty barrel!

    Yes, it is one of the characteristics the human kind seems to have since centuries (and maybe even ever since we started walking upright and the first one tripped and banged his/her head).

It's just a difference in tendencies, and it seems that women tend toward a more introspective impulse, and men toward action.
    I'm inclined to agree. And I think it's testosterone that fuels the "alpha dog"/"king-of-the-mountain" impulse.

    That's the sound when you are frying up left over potatoes..cabbage..and you brown them..

    Absolutely nothing to do with farting..English people don't fart as a rule..it is considered very bad etiquette..

    When I first read the term, I asked an English colleague what it meant, and she explained about the potatoes and cabbage and smiled, "Oh, Nota, think about it...."
