    Not everyone can be a Trekkie AND a British lit nerd. Speaking of, I can’t believe we don’t have a ‘nerd’ emoji in here. It would be so apropos.

    His second post with the "...Warsaw jews..." comment is where he lost me.
    It came across as way too biting and I just figured it was going to be all downhill from there on.

    I wasn't far off.

    Who needs to be a British literature nerd? I learned everything I need to know about British slang from 70's British sitcoms.

    If I couldn't learn it from Are You Being Served, it wasn't worth knowing.

    Heh .. I leaned the finer points of British slang by hanging out here for the last twenty-some years.

    I can watch almost every episode of both Rising Damp and The Young Ones on YouTube.

    I think we can safely assume that you're making a generalization that may not be true, given the Internet and the fact that people from all over the world interact daily now.

    Let's stop with all the b.s. now, OK? And get back to SNW.

    Note regarding the "let's stop" statement: That's my polite version. You don't want my normal one. ;)
