No offence there’s sort of a stereotype of British people have horrible teeth why?

I was watching Diva Brides on Netflix and noticed that the girls all had horrible teeth. This is of course an over generalization, but I was wondering is it true and why? Possible theories I have is that maybe in North America there are more stuff added to our water such as fluoride??

Question about a possible British Wedding Tradition

I was hoping someone would be able to help me find out what the white boot added to my Grandmothers wedding bouquet symbolizes. Or if it was a tradition for the time they were married. Unfortunately, my Grandmother passed away very suddenly in December of 2016 and while going through some old photos my family found the below photo. My Grandfather when asked about the photo couldnt remember very much due to dementia.

My grandparents were married in the 1954 in Skegness, Lincolnshire, England.

If anyone could help me figure this out I would be forever grateful. Thank you

AITA for telling my boyfriends brother he’s a disgusting creep for admitting he married his wife because she β€˜is wife material’ unlike British women

I’m a little irritated writing this so my apologies if things come out jumbled. Please ask for clarification on any of the following and I’ll happily try and give more info.

My partner is of southern Italian descent living in the UK. His entire family are Italian however it’s been many years since their family immigrated and they are British in terms of values, attitudes (for the most part) etc, all except my boyfriends brother.

He married a Christian British- Italian girl he’d known for 6 months. They’re been married for 4 years now so obviously their marriage is working but he always has her wrapped around his little finger.

He talks to her like she’s a child, won’t say please or thank you. Stuff like β€˜Sofia, make me coffee’ etc. She seems entirely content and happy which is her business and I’m really not judging her at all, but moreso his attitude and behaviour.

We were at family dinner and he said to me β€˜pass the bowl’. I said β€˜say please’ because his rude demeanour really

British English - Mancunian Accent

Hey, could somebody help me working on my accent? I got no specific reason, nor am I actually native. I’m nigerian-german, but my dad grew up in Manchester and he doesn’t speak the accent as well anymore, because it’s got back to 100% pidgin, so that’s not helpful.

I want to study in the UK, and I’d prefer to study and work in Manchester to experience a bit of the stuff my dad talked about. My English definitely isn’t perfect, even though I grew up bilingual until... things happened. Anyways, I’d appreciate some help, but I’ll also totally understand if you wouldn’t agree to help me.

To all my British-Americans, I need advice!

I didn't really know where to ask a question and get responses. So, I chose here.

I am British, I was born in England, my whole family was, and moved to America when I was 6 years old.

My older brother was 9. We went to a British American Elementary school, which included having an English curriculum and English teachers. Through this, I spoke with an English accent to my teachers and at home with family, and learned the American accent through my classmates and friends. I am still this way, I have two accents, I don't know how to describe how that works. My brother never got the American accent, as he was quite older than me. I have a younger sister who was born 8 years after me, in the U.S, and doesn't have an english accent at all, of course.

Anyway, I am now 21, and in my last year of college. We visit home at least once a year, and I always love it. My brother, 24, is planning on moving back to the UK. My parents also have a long-term plan for building a house in the UK, so we

I am a 92 year old German born Jew who grew up in the Hitler youth and was forced to fight in WW2 in the German anti-tank division. I deserted and became a POW in a British camp and eventually moved to Canada in 1955. Just recently, I published a memoir of my life. AMA

I was born in 1927 in Herne, Germany. To quote from my memoir, "I am a survivor of Nazi Germany during WW2. During my childhood I had to live 2 lives: a false public one as a loyal Nazi and my true one at home as a Jewish child in an anti-fascist family." Though both of my legal parents were German citizens, by biological father was Jewish. My family was always very open and accepting of others, and did not support fascism (but did what they needed to to survive). During WW2, we kept my heritage a secret. As a result, I was raised in the Hitler youth and trained as an anti-aircraft soldier. I was quite tall and desirable to the SS, but I had no interest in becoming one of them, so I volunteered to be in the anti-tank division once I was old enough to enlist.

Though I fought as a German, I never believed in the war and waited for an opportunity to desert. When I was 17 a group of like-minded soldiers and I deserted and became POW in a British camp for 7 months.

Greetings from Ann Arbor! My name is Scott Ellsworth, and I am the author of THE WORLD BENEATH THEIR FEET: Mountaineering, Madness, and the Deadly Race to Summit the Himalayas, which was published this week by Little, Brown. It's a book about obsession, courage, nationalism, tragedy, and triumph that takes places in the years just before and after World War II. Set in India, Tibet, Nepal, England, Germany, Switzerland, and the United States, it tells the story of the largely forgotten men and women who tried to climb to the summits of some of the highest mountains on Earth, including Mount Everest, K2, and Nanga Parbat.

I'm a writer and historian--and former climber--who spent four years researching this book on three different continents. Please feel free to reach out, and I'll do my best to answer any questions about what I believe is one of the great lost adventure stories of the past hundred years. Fire away!

British people, is saying "fuck" a big deal in England?

I'm from Denmark and I'm going on a trip to London with my class next week. Our English teacher says that saying stuff like "fuck" is a big deal in England and that English people would find it offensive if they heard us say it in public, which I find hard to believe.
