    Religion Doesn'T Make You A Good Person

    I met the most epic homeless man, who gave me the greatest wisdom ever. He taught me the difference between a religious person, and a GOOD person. This was at a homeless shelter I was volunteering in, where I saw him reading a book with a complicated title. He told me a story...

    Don't forget to pay your taxes this year,

    so the government can give it to people who don't work as hard as you.

    Since I've Turned Forty

    Since I’ve turned forty. Lots of things have happened since I’ve turned forty. I have learned to accept that I am physically not perfect and that no one really is. Okay, so things have headed south but my smile hasn’t. No longer do I judge a book by it’s cover and what...

    This is a half-truth.

    My parents are British but I was born in Australia. My parents watched all the British shows on TV when I was growing up. As a result I feel like I have an affinity with England. I've been to London (on my dual-citizen passport :) and felt immediately at home when I arrived. I...

    Well that's the end of it really.

    I'm British. I think a few years ago that was more of something to be proud of than it is now but I'm still proud to be British and I'm still proud of my country and what we are. Even if it's just having a queen and not being too bad as a country in general. I'm not saying that...

    I remember having an argument with an American

    I'm a proud British,

    but I don't understand how some people think we have a nice accent? Not everyone has the same accent in Britain an according to where they're from, they can sound really rough. Can't stand, rough, uneducated accents. >_< sorry.

    I'm British :) it's always a Bank holiday & it

    rains a lot . And you have to pay a lot of taxes as well. O & we have a coalition Government. House prices are to high and transport costs to expensive. The internet is to slow . And we have lost a lot of our manufacturing base . But it's still the best country :)
