mmmmmmm well I'm just gonna be me when I get there, same as everywhere else I go. If someone doesn't like me, pi** off and if they do, then i'd love a friend, thanks.
I'm looking forward to going and integrating but I am English and will pretty much stay that way. Take it or leave it.
I'm a nice person and a good friend and if someone can't see beyond the colour of my skin or my accent then that's their loss.

As I said there is heaps of research on this. Google it.

Have a read for your self. If your view is then different to mine well so be it.

Just because a nation/race does not want to embrace technology does not imply that they are less intelligent. It's just the way they choose to live. Have you asked yourself why black nations might be less "advanced" as you put it? Because the british empire went round the world colonising and plundering these countries and taking all the riches with them!! As for the aboriginal people... so what if they didn't have canoes??! It seems that they were quite happy living their life on THEIR land until the british settlers arrived and stole their land.

Just Googled it. You seem to be basing your argument on the claims of James Watson, a 79 year old American geneticist. Funnily enough, my dad was at Cambridge with Watson around the time that he (Watson), Crick and Wilkins discovered DNA's double-helix. Apparently he wasn't a terribly likeable person then and age hasn't improved him.

Watson has also said that "a woman should have the right to abort her unborn child if tests could determine it would be homosexual," that "black people have higher libidos" and when discussing beauty said, “People say it would be terrible if we made all girls pretty. I think it would be great.”

So - an unbiased trustworthy source or not? To quote from a Times article on him:
Commenting on Dr Watson’s current views about race, Steven Rose, a professor of biological sciences at the Open University, said: “This is Watson at his most scandalous. He has said similar things about women before but I have never heard him get into this racist terrain.
He added: “If he knew the literature in the subject he would know he was out of his depth scientifically, quite apart from socially and politically.”

And made this great country called Australia, where most of us live, or want to live and the reason this newsgroup exists.

Thank heavens the Poms did 'steal' their land.

Never heard of James Watson or his theories.

Someone speaking sense at last.

It amazes me why so many poms are embarrassed by their history. There's nothing to be ashamed of.

I'm not the biggest fan of the UK but I am a fan of a lot of what the UK did in the past.
Between Elizabethan and Victorian times, rightly or wrongly, Britain shaped the the English-speaking world as we know it today. Not all of it was pretty or right, but it happened and is nothing for Poms to be ashamed of.

It may have been easier, but atleast he made an effort to do some research, even if he did pick some silly unknown twat to source. I was waiting for someone to pick that Times article to try and discredit me. Funny.

You, however base your theories on what's on the back of a coco pops box.

That's why you will never amount to anything and will be doing my gardens and cleaning my pool for the rest of your life.

Get with the times. Most credible scientific research now makes it's way on the net. There are many databases to source such information. This is 2008, you no longer need to go to a library for credible information.

Broaden your horizons, get off the porn sites and chat rooms and have a look around on the net.
