Surely this is just variation #33481 on the old "meeting online friends physically is always a weird experience" observation.
You would ruin this perfect impression, wouldn't you?
Thanks yourself for the racism, holloway. I see from the photo of yourself you chose to present to the world(in your user profile - quick, delete it now!)you are an admirable example of cleanliness and health, not to mention the Architectural Digest-style backdrop. Wow!
How sad that when I want to express affection and ribbing, as one does with one's best friends, I'm always interpreted as being aggressive.
Your command of English is above that of the average native speaker: you just say weird shit and then try to explain it away by saying it is a language issue or a cultural issue.I
Are people in Portugal constantly engaging in over-the-top flattery? That would surprise me, since the Portuguese people I've met (admittedly not a large sample) tend to be straightforward and down to earth.II
There are about five or so sites I visit daily, or even several times a day, and U.S.S. Clueless is one of them.
Your's is the only web log I read. I check out several others, but some were really dumb, others were unintersting, some were not updated as frequently... you get the picture.

Britain, which once stood astride the world, seems to shrink more and more every year into just another one of those European countries more concerned about welfare programs than defense. And whose idea was it to allow all those Muslims, who are now rioting in the streets and shouting "Death to whites" and going off to join bin Laden, to immigrate? What madness in the guise of tolerance and "diversity." I hate to paraphrase Hermann Goering, but whenever I heard the word "diversity," I want to reach for my pistol.
Metafilter, my #1 source for new links,also happens to be the home of a political flat earth society...rabid, frothing at the mouth haters of western culture, especially American;Snarky little trolls who refuse to accept that left is a Position rather than a direction, and thus refuse to see any possible good coming out of the war on terror, or the need to validate their antiwar/antiamerican stand or to offer any sort of options.The first time 'Arab Terrorists'was used in the press, the owner of Metafilter posted a "the racism has begun"
post. It was upsetting to me until I realized that most of these folks are 'me too', wannabe liberals, their feet not firmly planted on the bedrock of any ethic which they can explain. Its really sad.
