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.

          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.
