Great choice of word there: the Dutch word lul means prick, as in bellend.

Stop whingeing and face the challenge.

Have faith in your country - even if you have no faith in yourself

Have faith in your country

If you could just let me know what my "country" is and why, that would be great, ta.

His country is the UK.  At least I think it is.  I met him once and he spoke good English.

Not really, but I suggest that you look at your passport.

If you don't have one then I would suggest that you are either British or an illegal immigrant

The country of my citizenship is the UK. What am I to have faith in,  and why?

Your fellow countrymen (clearly not your own contribution) .

Think along the lines of the American ethos of 'anything is possible if you want it enough'

If we were all like you, sitting in a corner with our heads in our hands wailing that 'we are all doomed' , then we would indeed be in trouble

Rely on your fellow countrymen to make us great again on your behalf Roll Eyes

This is where you and I part. I do stuff for myself by myself. If there's a problem - like Vanilla Ice I'll solve it. Myself. I have no idea who my 'countrymen' are, or who I should 'have faith' in.

Explain, please.

That's very clever Myky - and highly commendable

Let us know when you perform an appendectomy on yourself......and are we allowed to use your roads? If so, where are they?

Well done, you're learning

Fortunately 'society' (your countrymen) see to minor details like education, road building and maintenance...while you 'do stuff for yourself'

I also do stuff for society. I don't care what country people are from, whether I'm doing stuff for them or whether they're doing stuff for me, or, indeed, where said stuff is being done. So who are my countrymen?

I'm still none the wiser.

Ahh, you've moved the goalposts. You made no mention of your services to society, you just said "This is where you and I part. I do stuff for myself by myself."

No I haven't - i took it as given, as I'm part of society.

So - on you go, ben.

I've alerted the Guinness Records people, cleared some server space, and checked the bandwidth.

Considering how clever you are,  it must be upsetting for you to not be able to answer an idiot like me, because it shows you how much you don't know.

That must feel dreadful.
