Don't mess with a Glaswegian and never go out drinking with one.
 
Yes no kidding. Not to be made mad. And their allegiance to the Rangers or Celtic can only be called obsessive.  They make shrines.  Odd.

It makes it more colourful. All the US-based designers here on RP are jealous of those of us in the English-speaking world outside the States. Go ahead — ask anyone!

Yes and if we can convince them of the truths of turnips, rutabagas, and other vegetables, then it is not long before they see the truths of other things like american foriegn policy and the american style of diplomacy.

no, don't "google" it, for that would be impossible since it is not a verb.  Look it up on google.
