Most of us come from Vega de Pas, an isolated valley in the north of Spain that has curiously developed its own form of English (Vegadepasian), due to incomunication. These incredible random coincidences do happen.

Anyway, you should know one thing before posting: Vegadepasian is not completely equal to English:

1) The word 'sht' does not exist. Its buttcream.

2) 'Manual propeller pitch' is actually a very hot expression full of sexual connotations.

3) Summer fashion singers are not considered human beings in our culture. They're considered a plague for their effects on harvests, and are hunted down as sport. We usually make shoes and cases with their hides. Scrotum and shaved breasts are specially appreciated.

4) Saying IBTL three times is an invocation to our shaman-king, known as Steve V. It has the shape of a praying mantis and being the priest of our storm god, Oleg, he can summon thunder and lightning at will. Beware.

5) "Where is the p**ch" is a extremely rude taboo expression, that is punished with death by pushing DVD cases up your anus. Death comes thru print ink intoxication.

6) Here is asumed that Vega de Pas won World War Two. There's no proof denying this, so let it go.

7) A 'jap' is a tiny sweet pumpkin pie that you can buy in popular parties. Since some recipes include roaches and so, discretion is adviced when you read something on the topic.

Hope this serves you.

LONG LIVE VEGA DE PAS!!!

From my observations made on HL there are quite a few nationalities which should be selected to a more precise a poll, in case someone is willing to do that).
The most noticable nationalities (from my lil. observations):
1. Russians
2. USA-Americans
3. Brazilians
4. Ukrainians
5. Germans
6. Canuks
7. Finns
8. we (the Polish)
9. Czechs & Slovaks
10. Biscuiters http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif (erm- the British)
11. French
12. Spanish
13. Argentinians
14. Aussies

I think if a poll would be conducted, those 14 nations would be responsible for 75% of PF-flying maniacs :-)

I also noticed some Chinese (from CPAV squadron mostly) but they usually have so bad a connection that it's impossible to have a fight with or against them. So I did not included them into the list, although I see them quite often, trying to connect to games in HL.

related, i think so anyway.

got it from a piece on www.smh.com.au (http://www.smh.com.au) about Tobruk and its significance to ANZAC Day:

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR> ....Ed Duda, the scene of one of the few bayonet charges during World War II by Australian forces.

Under the cry of "the Australians are coming", 160 men from two companies of the 2/13th Battalion fixed bayonets and charged the German defenders. The result was a rout of the estimated 450 defenders and the capture of 167 Germans.

The battalion's history records show that Private Clarrie Jones had taken charge of a German captain who demanded to know just who had captured him.

When told it was the Australians, the German refused to believe him, saying that he thought the Australians had left Tobruk.

"Indignantly," the records said, "Clarrie Jones shoved his metal titles, bearing the word 'Australia' under the German's nose".

The officer was still unconvinced, claiming the soldiers were "English in Australian uniforms to frighten us". <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

Where do you reckon the pacific Campaign would have gotten the US without the Great Southern Aircraft Carrier and Munitions Factory?

And if you think Japanese troops landing in Australia would have meant capturing and ruling the place, you havent met many Australians.

Nukes where dropped on Japan to avoid the estimated million or so casualties an amphibious assault on the home islands would mean.
Do you think Japan had the manpower available to throw away on an amphibious assault of northern Australia? Do you think Aussies would be any less fanatic in the defense of their homeland and loved ones then the Japanese were expected to be?

The Japanese had a real rough time with the Aussie lads they encountered in New Guinea, and that was only a handfull, in terrain utterly alien to them....how do ya reckon they would have faired with every Aussie in the place, man woman and child, out to kill them, and doing it on Dad's farm, or the old school yard, or that spot on the range they had camped at every year since they were kids, ground they are as familiar with as the backs of their own hands? Ground(not to mention climate and local fauna) that to a Japanese, would be as alien as New Guniea was.
The Japanese never would have made it south of the Brisbane line, and they never could have held the north, there would not have been one bore, creek, dam, well, trough, puddle or windmill left functioning or not poisoned, they would have to have brought their water with them, and in the climate we are talking about, water means everything.

Reaching Australia is one thing, conquering, and even more so, keeping it, is quite another, it is just too big, the manpower required to police it would be huge, about the same as it would take to occupy the US.

There was as much likelyhood of Japan occupying the US as Australia, ie about nil.

I can assure them, we dont owe them a **** thing. No country stood alone in WW2 and to claim one country had it all is so laughable it indicates what kind of person is making such a ridiculous claim.

Take it easy EnGuard, theres a big differance between ignorance (ignoring facts) and just plain old not knowing.
He's just proud of his country and it's history, just like you and I are of ours, no need to run amok on the guy just because of a little bit of a dig he made.

How much do you know about the battles of the American Civil War? I'd guess not a whole hell of a lot, just like me, and most other Aussies, reason being, we were just never taught about it in school.

I doubt the Yanks get taught a whole lot about Australia's involvement in WWII while they are at school, and only those who are interested enough to go looking for information on the topic would ever really be aware of anything beyond the fact that we were on their side.

Thats the beauty of forums like this, we get to take advantage of educations from all over the world....for instance, there is a mass of information around here about the Russia/Finland war, and a lot of it is pretty inspiring stuff, full of all kinds of heroics and bravery on both sides, yet I knew nothing of it a few years back, beyond that I might have maybe thought Finland was on Germany's side on account of that funky blue swastika and them flying 109s.
To a Finn or a Russian, does that make me a stereotypical dumbarsed Aussie moron because I didnt know, or just someone who has never been made aware of the facts?. [awaits barrage of "Aussie moron!" comments http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I'm very interested in hearing about life in other parts of the world, and I would love threads like this were they not always spoiled by some jerk that cannot resist the impulse to spew venom.

I've met people from all over the world on the web. There are only two kinds - jerks and nonjerks - and in my experience they're found in equal proportions just about everywhere.

Im currently working on a scheme whereby the entire British Iles is towed further out into the Atlantic by gangs of seals working in relays, in conjunction with the entire population of Britain, travelling to the east coast, sticking their feet in the water and start kicking.

Europe is a loverly place with interesting people with much better beer than the Americas, and the authors comments are in no way to be taken as offensive as this is a joke. It has been deemed necersary to point this out as there are an alarming number of people who are as thick as the proverbial small scale lengths of flat wood who would take offence to the sky being blue.

I'm a Frostback that comes from one of those new world continents that are on the other side of the globe and aren't even worth description to you. North America, South America, how droll!

tihs ym tea! This is a collquial greeting from one of those new worlders that have barbaric tendencies, like washing their genetalia:
- In Canada, we wash our genitals.
- In Costa Rica, they wash their genitals.
- In Argentina, they wash their genitals.
We do this only because our waters are not already putrified by upsteam cities.
Hey, If I had to live in London, Paris or Cairo, there's no freakin way I'd let that sh*t water touch my body.
I guess there's a reason why the entire Continent of South America, Central America, Mexico and Canada are left out of the equation; we don't bath in effluence from upstream.

Why don't we break this down into a new poll:
- How many people drink water that has, at some point, already been cycled through another human body.
- The others are insignifcant, and we like them less, because of their insignificance.
