I believe this is a typical American breakfast?

Studies have shown that people that eat a healthy breakfast tend to stay at a more normal weight....they don't snack on junk as much and load up at lunch...and four out of ten skip breakfast.

Don't laugh too hard...the UK is in the top ten fattest. :P

Where did I claim "we all" eat cereal? :blink: I certainly don't. Six days a week I eat a bowl of fruit, a slice of cheese and a piece of toast. The 7th day I make eggs, biscuits and gravy, a meat and fried potatoes for my husband...and I usually still eat mostly fruit and a biscuit. I also like leftover pizza for breakfast when we have it.

I can't make myself eat breakfast. I'm never really hungry before I've been up for about 4-5 hours. And by then it's lunchtime.

From your post i can tell your going to be pleasantly surprised to hear Britain has the best Chinese food in the world, ask any American who's eaten it over here they no longer want to eat that inferior American stuff, the reason being, the best Chines food was made in Hong Kong with it being a former colony many had a right to move to the UK and they did, there isn't an high street in Britain without a Chinese restaurant, the same goes for India having been a colony for a few hundred years the British influence on their food is vast, they never brought hot food over here Europe took hot food to the Indian sub continent,the first Indian restaurant in England opened in 1690 (i just noticed that's longer than you've been a country :P ) the small town i live in has two Michelin star restaurant's one being in the worlds top ten, admittedly you won't get a large lump of meat covered in sticky sauce put in front of you the minuet you sit down you'll have to wait for it to be cooked and it will only be a human size portion but you'll go away satisfied and the meal will live on in your memory and not your stomach, have a nice day. :D

That 18% will be amongst the young...the standard of education here now is crap...half of 'em don't know where milk or eggs come from.

Too busy teaching them about alternative sexuality and all the rest of the PC rubbish to actually educate them about everyday life.

Most of 'em can't count or spell either.

Although i knew what it was, i can understand that there are many that don't.

I bet even Einstein had his stupid moments.

It's only easy if you know the answer, otherwise you just take a guess...

Most english people can't talk a single sentence of english, with their words that don't even exist and their slang. But who is the stupid one, them for speaking like this, or you for not understanding? :tu:

I try and speak english clearly to people from outside my area, because we don't speak the same and they get confused. Whoever started this craze of being different, wasn't very bright in my eyes. Most of the words are nothing like the originals, and anyone from outside the area is going to have difficulty understanding. People don't put in the effort to speak anymore. I think we'll be going back to grunting soon :lol:

Ah, yet another eaxample of how you can use statistics and sensationalist language to prove anything you want.

1 in 5 Brits? Really? I'd like to know what methods they were using... out of the approximately 500 Brits I reckon I know, I can confidently say none of them think haggis is an animal.

Without information on how their sampling was achieved, and even with it, this means absolutely nothing.

Some English dishes are common in Australia too such as Shepherds pie,fish and chips and Sunday Roast,i love shepherds pie. Never heard of Haggis.

Funny as Haggis. I'm willing to bet that the conception of it being a hillside animal has at least a little to do with a comic strip that once ran in the Beano which I think was called "The McHaggises." The comical stories featured Haggises precisely as described and also often involved people's attempts to capture them, presumably for eating. Perhaps the myth preceded the strip, but I bet some old readers just carried on the joke by way of their offspring. Incidentally, I think it's delicous. Hoots, mon!
