Yeah, when you say something hasn't happened yet, you jinx it so then it has to happen! Unless you knock on wood right after. :3 That's the superstition anyway.

Knock on wood rofl. You know the first time I heard someone say that I was so confused as I wasn't living too long in the UK when it happened. I was like "Why are you doing that?". Same with things like "You're bang out of order" I was like "what's wrong with him?" since I didn't realize it meant "You're out of line / being mean etc".

I had never heard of "Bang out of order" until you said that. xD

I can't think of any phrases that were weird to me...I'll keep trying though, lol

Apparently 'barking mad' is a Britishism as well, which I had no idea until last week. Maybe the solution is for Americans to start watching British movies/TV shows? ;-D

Does anybody actually want to be an accountant? Like, does somebody actually look up and say "Mummy, when I grow up I want to be an accountant!"?

No this is why we're strong. None of this pansy wood-touching, we knock our wood around like real men!

I could innuendo that up nice and proper, but out of respect for the wandering thread I will refrain.

Just don't knock our wood til you've tried it, lady.

What. It was locked? That is saddening. Well, that is unless it was just too large.

Welcome home, Wandering thread.

Welcome home, Wandering thread.
The old one hadn't been posted in since June, and died in Graphics and Photography. :/

I don't do competitive much at all. I have a team buuut I don't like stressing myself out over winning/losing and I don't like doing something competitive socially cause it doesn't bring out my best side. :B

It's been a while since I actually had a competitive battle now that I think about it. Last battle I had was with my friend James when I was in Redlands at the time, whooped his ass pretty easily even if his Samurott was on steroids at the time but nothing my Gengar couldn't handle lol.

I'm not good at battling really, but I can remember when I won the first time I tried battling with my classmate on school. :P
