    In America I rarely hear the expression.

    Its bloody hot outside.

    People tend not to use bloody over here.

    I'd bring up the different names for Smokes but that might be a little to offensive.

    Can you please give me a light for my fag?

    Can you please give me a light for my cigarette?

    Might sound corny but I don't smoke so I am not exactly sure how you smokers would phrase that statement.

    We simply say, "Hey, got a light?"

    "Can I borrow a light?"

    "Can I bum a smoke of ya?"

    That's about it.

    "Meh. At petsmart a few days ago I saw a woman buying 4 bettas for one tank."

    I read this in another thread, by CBTF. Is "meh" a Canadian term? I think I've seen it used before.
    55g: 21 tiger barbs, 1 red tail shark, Java fern
    38g: corys, rasboras, neons, danios, amazon swords, Red Wendtii, Java fern, 1 shrimp

    Meh is an attempt to spell an emotion, I think.

    What I find droll is the fact that there are actually more variances within American English than there are between American English and English English.

    In America you bum a ciggarette(ask for a smoke), which in the uk would be quite nasty.
    But then they think nothing of blowing fags.

    I spent a couple weeks in London during my senior year in college. Towards the end of my stay I got lost trying to find my way back to the tube. I ended up following a couple signs that pointed me in the direction of a "subway" which led me to an underground street crossing. So, instead of realizing my mistake, I walked through the thing four or five times trying to fnd a train station somehow hidden in it. It was only until I scared a couple of 10 year old girls when I asked them where the subway was, while we were standing in it, that I figured out what happened.

    I'm sorry, but that is funny!
