Hey! There you go.. knew there had to be some things that were right in the 'today i heard on npr' information my husband tells me when he gets home from work :P

It is most definitely time for my husband and I to move state - California sounds good to me

You think that's bad?

A few years ago they broadcast an interview that Melvyn Bragg did with Billy Connolly for the South Bank Show - there was almost nothing left of it ...

Nudity on TV? haven't seen ANY since I have been in the US, and when they have nudity, its blurred out.
..
Per-lease. I went home to UK for a visit, switched on the tele and thought I was watching a porno. You forget how open it is at home after a while.

I tell Americans when they ask why we're so stiff that ""you're all loud and obnoxious in public because you're prudish crap in the bedroom. Now what do you think the Brits are like in that case?"
It makes them think.

I'll tell you another thing, those American loo cubicles (hello McDonalds etc) with the gap in between the stalls that's so wide you may as well leave the door open for all to see....enough said.
