Take that uncle Sam.
I know Uncle Sam, but I don't know Uncle Sam. Wondering how many of y'all know the origin of the phrase without Googling it'? Is it like 100%, like everyone knows?


Another question that was in the back of my mind (mostly for the U.S., but also for Canada or whatever country really): if you had to ask a foreigner a question to figure out whether or not they were born and raised in your country, what would it be? (Not a shibboleth ... not pronunciation based.)

(As an Irish person, such a question would be trivial; I'd just ask something we know from school as gaeilge. But also as an Irish person, I feel like any such question from the U.S. at least I should be able to hazard a guess at. Maybe I'm full of shit though to think that?)
My rep is supposed to mean that I have multiple personalities - so I'm that kinda crazy too.

I had to google Uncle Sam too.

Utisz, you are clearly not an American based on your gridiron football knowledge, although you have the general gist of things.

edited better question: Do you think foreign women are more narcissistic than American women, like from an American perspective?

The ones who wear veils aren't. The ones who have fewer rights than American women aren't. Maybe a British woman. They have that Lovey Howell accent.

Will the school shooting continue at the same rate for the foreseeable future?
Or will something substantial change?
