    When I watch auto races from England, they always talk about the "tarmac" as opposed to the "pavement". I bet they think our Nascar races are pretty barbaric.

    Is Nascar where they just go round and round in a circle???

    Oh, i've remembered another one. The one time I was in America i asked somebody if this was the back of the queue, and they were like what's a queue. We later established it was a line in the USA.

    English people and pizzas.

    I used to work at a Pizza Hut. A few times we'd have some English visitors. They always ordered anchovies. But the way the asked for them always made me laugh, as if they didn't think I'd know what it is.

    "Can I have little fishies on it?"

    Seriously. This was asked on two occassions.

    Circle, oval, tri-oval, yeah, that's about it. Only counter-clockwise too.

    Do you guys have a word for those traffic circles? I live near DC, so have a few, but most people never have to deal with them.

    I don't like "round-abouts"... They should only be used, and built near new and used car lots! Want to test drive a car? Then use the roud-abouts.

    Its a rotary or round-about . I'm from NH.

    They installed one on NC States campus and after a ton of accidents and people not having a clue, it has actually made driving a lot easier. I'm glad they did it but boy was it a head-ache while people learned how to use it. We actually have one as you enter my apartment complex.

    The scarriest one I've been in was around the Arc d' Triumph, well it was fun! Several lanes wide and try to work your way to the center as fast as you can and then work your way out again >
