I didn't see a choice for US so I picked the closest one, North America.

I have to admit, I was about to say "well I live in America for five years and never.." but then realised I did in fact have a revolver :blush: a British one, Webley Mk.I* , along with my Lee-Enfield SMLE Mk.III* (bolt-action rifle) but alas, still a revolver.

Do you also shoot it at the sky in celebration?

Well, no. Only shot it at cans of mixed vegetables :)

Voted North America, Wyoming USA. Doesn't get much more wild west than that. :) Have a Taurus 9mm revolver, but never shot in the air in celebration though. Oh, and I do eat my vegetables. Ma and Pa always threatened we'd get rickets if we didn't. :lol:

They have vegetables here in the States, just different to how you're used to 'em...

Fried okra, fried green tomatoes, collard greens, and so on.

Some of the names are a bit confusing too -- courgettes are zucchini over here, and aubergines are eggplants.

Main thing I miss, though, are proper chips*. The French fries that most places serve are nothing like what a proper chip should be.

* Not to be confused with what Americans call chips, which are crisps.

I remember i first heard the word eggplant in tony hawks pro skater when i was a kid. the word sounded silly.

There's a time and place for both thin and thick chips, i'm glad that in england we get both.

for thin chips (french fries) burger king seem to be superior on both sides of the pond. is that your experience as well?

Pretty much :) Burger Kings fries seems to be uniformly better, whereas McDonalds is occasionally good, occasionally awful. There isn't any kind of consistency in quality with them.

I feel my arteries close up just thinking about fried vegetables. Raw, cooked, oven-baked.. fine but fried?
