That's not a palace, that's a fucking fortress.


And ohmygod, I cannot believe we are arguing over whether Europe is or is not a continent. US isn't a fucking continent either. Sure, it covers most of one, but that's besides the point.

I'd rather be in Berlin than in Paris. I prefer the youth cultures there, and it's way cleaner and friendlier.

Learning French? ;)
Trust me, it's hard over there if you don't speak it. The French don't like using languages other than their own.

That's why I abuse their left overs in the English language. They target any word that sounds remotely like any other language and they change it to confusing clicks and long vowels. They are still doing this... weirdos. So if I see a French word, I will pronounce it correctly by English law.

Example: Creme'
Pronounced as: Creamy
I Pronounce as: 'Crem'-'e'

The US calendar is entirely redundant. Either have it yyyy-mm-dd, which is useful for having chronological files on the computer (I do it with pictures), or dd-mm-yyyy.
I mainly use metric, but for heights and weights of a person, I use imperial. Just habit I guess.

Um... So have we. I made one myself just the other day. Then a couple of days later I wrapped a turkey steak in bacon. Good bacon, that is, not American bacon. If you Yanks ever come to the old country (I hereby claim that nickname for Britain!) try our bacon, and it will blow your mind. Because it's actually made of meat, instead of that burnt-through fat-filled crispy pigshit you call bacon.

I use imperial measurements for more or less everything. Height, weight, distance, cooking, whatever. But I use metric at work because otherwise the stuff we ship abroad just gets everyone confused. By the way, a little history for y'all: the reason America and Britain use imperial measurements (named after the Roman empire, FYI) is because the metric system was implemented by Napoleon while he was conquering Europe. But as he never made it to Britain or America, we never adopted the new measurements. He also wanted to bring in metric time. That would have been weird.
I hope I am a good enough writer that some day dwarves kill me and drink my blood for wisdom.
