The voters have decided that rowanne is right! Vote on the post to say if you agree or disagree.

On the border, it's Milo.

That's cute :]

Yes, but many people shorten it to 'Kilo.' It sounds better.

@rowanne oh dang. now i feel like a jip. D: oh well.

haha if it wasn't already posted I think your good, because I still think it's funny :D

why do people call it "America"? Saying "the U.S" sounds better, imo.

Yeah I try to say U.S. so long as it doesn't make the sentence awkward. It bugs me to say "American" though, since it doesn't seem specific enough (since Mexico is also technically in America, thus making those "America for Americans" signs kind of pointless), but alas, there is no proper eponym for "a resident of the United States of America."

I've always liked the word "stateside" when referring to things that happen in the U.S.

I voted no way because I am an asshole.

The real question is why you're freaking out over a very small number of no ways compared to yeah you ares. every post gets some no ways. i think it's you that needs to lighten up.

i really don't want to get into an argument so i'm going to make this clear. first, it's my post, so frankly, i'll do what i please. second, i'm not 'freaking out'- i'm not seriously worrying about it. i am however confused; 62+ 'no ways' seems like a lot for a harmless joke, which leads me to believe that people are somehow taking me seriously. that's a bit concerning. third, i think you need to lighten up as well, considering my 'freaking out' in no way effects you yet you still feel the need to reprimand me for it. leave me alone, please.

i think you were trying to imply that since the distances change once you cross the border, soshould the name but this is not true at all and you fail

@Charles_E_Cheese i think you were trying to imply that since the distances change once you cross the border, soshould the name but...

i.. no? christ, you're reading way too much into this. it's a joke my mum always makes because she's lame. why they fuck would i want people to literally change their name?

..i think it's you, sir, who fail.
