    P*ssed is another word they use for drunk.

    Randy...I like that one as well.

    Oh gosh, there's so many and right now I can't think of one.

    Well, once I called cattlegrid (here) a prat. I didn't realize I actually insulted him. Felt so bad. We cleared it up and I removed the word from my comment.

    Tellie (or is it telly).

    Cinema instead of theater.

    Blimey.

    That's just the dog's bollocks.

    Oh, so many more.

    I deal with "shield" vs "screen" in cables too. Americans like to call a cable shielded, English call the same cable screened. For me, a screen is something over a door or window to keep the bugs out.

    Drive to the second robot past the Lori stop and make a right. When you get to my flat take the lift to the second floor. I will meet you next to the Loo where we can go and eat some scones and maybe some chips.

    Drive to the second traffic light past the Truck stop and make a right. When you get to my apartment take the elevator to the second floor. I will meet you next to the bathroom where we can go and eat some biscuits and maybe some french fries.

    In Scotland we use steamboats or steaming to mean drunk. Also blotto, paraletic, rocketzed.

    Slang words are used....

    hoose = house
    moose = mouse
    aboot = about
    toon = town
    foond = found
    moontin = mountain
    yin = one
    twa = two
    gaun = going
    tae = to
    nae = no
    isnae = isn't
    diznae = doesn't

    Using moose instead of mouse causes confusion. I was once telling some workmates about the time I rescued a moose from my cat. I prized the cats jaws open to get the moose and then the moose bit me. I dropped it and the cat ran away with it
