Ass. To us a quadraped of the horse family or a stupid person. The word you guys are looking for in English english is 'arse'.
Buns. You know what these are. You're probably sitting on them now. Over here buns are either bread or cake rolls. Asking for a couple of sticky buns in a bakery here will mean Mr Crusty the baker will give you two cake buns with icing (frosting) on the top. If I went into a deli in Manhattan and asked for a couple of sticky buns I'd probably get arrested...
Fag. A goody but an oldie. Over here a 'fag' is a cigarette. So in the song 'It's a long way to Tipperary' the line 'As long as you have a Lucifer to light your fag' is not a fundamentalist Christian's statement that all homosexuals will burn for eternity in hell, but saying that 'if you always have a match to light your cigarette...'
Faggots. Meat balls made from offal (chopped liver) in gravy. Also a small bundle of logs suitable to burn on a fire.
Fancy. To be sexually attracted to or to desire. Also a tea cake.
Fanny. To us the front bottom; to you the back one. In Britain, the fanny pack is known as a bum bag for obvious reasons...
Football. A classic example of our culture gap. To us football is what you call soccer. To you football is what we call pointless. You probably think the same way about cricket...
Muffler. To us what you call a muffler is called a silencer. In the UK a muffler is a long scarf a la Dickensian Novels. A muffler was also a derogatory name for a certain part of the female anatomy at my school, though this was probably unique to us. Try explaining THAT to a upstanding American when you are standing at the petrol (gas) station in fits of laughter...
Pants. You call pants what we call trousers; pants are the things that go underneath.
Pavement. Sidewalk to you. I couldn't think of anything smutty to go with this.
Pissed. To you it's quite legal to be pissed in a car in a traffic jam. In fact, in large cities sometimes you cannot help it. For us, it means that you have been over doing it 'down the boozer' (pub) and a kindly policeman will shortly flag you down and arrest you.
Rubber. In this country a pencil eraser. Don't be shocked if the mild mannered new Englishman in your office asks for a pencil with a rubber on the end. Especially when he says that he enjoys chewing it when he is thinking.
Shag. To you a dance. To us sexual congress. In otherwords you may have to summon up the courage to have a shag with someone, before you might have a shag with them later on. Also a sea bird similar to a cormorant and a type of rough tobacco.
Shit. To us, bodily waste. To you, practically everything as far as I could figure, good or bad (and you certainly don't want us to touch yours...)
Sneakers. We call these 'trainers' for some reason.
Waistcoat. You call them vests.
For being a published author
In a proper hunt, that baby
would've been killed and the rest would've ran away. Lions regularly commit infanticide, toss a bone between two friendly dogs and they'll fight like complete strangers. Its easy to pull one example and then make a broad claim like we're more callous than other animals. The truth is, we're no different than other animals. We have moments where we care far beyond the norm and we have moments where we just don't give a shit about each other.
An apostrophe between the t and s. It's that simple.

Um. I have no idea what that means... I don't even speak Japanese.
This one is graphic
I can't agree or disagree. A hundred years ago people would never have thought you could instantly talk to someone half way across the world with a hand held device. For all I know, billions of years into the future when earth has died, humans will be a space traveling, planet dominating species with the secrets of the universe all figured out. If humans can figure out how to permanently leave the planet before it dies or can figure out how to prevent it form dying, we can keep gathering knowledge and there's no reason the way the universe works would be completely impossible to figure out, maybe we can do it.
It's real food. But of course they take a lot of time making it look perfect:
They don't have that sort of time when you order it.
