I don't get to watch many cartoons outside of Spongebob, Flapjack, and Phineas and Ferb, but every once in a while, I get to see Batman: The Brave and the Bold. Holy crap is it HILARIOUS!

Point Break was an important documentary exposing the damage of Keanu Reave's "acting" on other actors. And the ocean.

Still, his English accent was better than Kevin Costner's in that Robin Hood movie.

I'll take Kevin Costner making no effort whatsoever to don an appropriate accent over Keanu's um, yeah...

Historically, thirteenth-century English didn't sound anything like it sounded in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves anyway. Debating whether Costner should have portrayed Robin Hood as one using a British accent seems moot.

During that time period, most of the English aristocracy would've spoken French as their primary language, I think. Robin Hood was portrayed as a nobleman in the Costner version, I think, so he should've had a French accent.

The same can be said of practically any historical film set prior to the turn of the century. The accuracy of the lingo, I mean....... not that they would all speak French, that's just weird.

An observation:

I think the people of every English-speaking country or region with a particularly distinctive set of pronunciations like to claim that the way they currently talk is "closest to the way English originally sounded."

I've heard Australians make the claim. I've heard the Irish make the claim. I've heard people from the southern US states make the claim. I'm pretty sure they all believe it, too. They're like all those people living in rural areas who used to like to brag that if there were to be a nuclear holocaust, "We'll be among the first to go." People in Northern Alabama desperately wanted to believe, for example, that Russia would nuke them "before New York, Los Angeles, and places like that" because of the Space and Rocket center located in Huntsville. Seriously. I'm almost certain every small town in America had itself convinced that the Russians would be hitting them first. I guess they just needed to feel important. Nothing makes you feel quite as important as paranoia.

The insignificant little village where I grew up (Newington, Sittingbourne, Kent) was a few short miles from an old, retired, Naval dockyard (Chatham) which could have been re-activated in the event of the Cold War getting warm.

You are correct. People in my village had been heard to say we would be among the first as the Russians would go for Chatham.

Although central London was only 50 miles away so I guess we were screwed either way.

I have a question for Mr. Chin Dimple.

Why do British Villages/Towns/Cities so often require the saying of three names like that? I hear it all the time on the BBC and my limited knowledge of British Geography leaves me terribly confused.

There are a lot of duplicated place names. If you (or anyone else) were ever to decide to Google it to see where somebody as horrific as myself was ejected from my pod, I think you would find several Newingtons. Even searching for Newingtons in Kent would give you two as there is also one near Ramsgate, so in the interests of clarity I gave the 3 bits of info.

I suppose it is similar to the reason why, in the US, every foreign city ever mentioned on the news is suffixed by it's country (e.g. London, England or Paris, France) but I feel the answer would be the same as there is a Paris, Texas, and Athens, Georgia and so on.

Kevin Costner chose to forego using an English (or French) accent because none would work well with the line "HaveNoFearComeDownBoy".

Or "ThenByGodWeTakeItBack."

This is fun, I'll have to re-watch the film now to see more examples of Costner "run-on".

Interesting. I didn't know there was so much duplication. I do disagree with this though. From what I've seen on the news, "Paris" is always either in reference to "France" or "Hilton", but not Texas. Same with Athens. I think this is because they dumb our news down enough so that when the word "Paris" gets mentioned, a picture of the Eiffel Tower gets flashed on screen, or whatever.

But I'm going to pay more attention to that. It's something I've never really given a lot of thought before.

How's the election campaign working out so far? Do you get a month of negative advertising on TV like we get our...oh...7 or 8 months of negative advertising on TV? Count your blessings that there's not a set election date every two years. I'm expecting attack ads for November any day now.

In Alabama, the "Albertville" intended in any discussion is communicated through pronunciation.

What they talk about when they talk about "Arab" is likewise indicated by the word's pronunciation.

We are very lucky in that the serving PM requests the dissolution of Parliament to prepare for an election, and the rules are that there can only be a month from him being granted that request to the date of the poll so the campaigning can be somewhat limited.

I would go out of my tiny mind if I had to deal with the seemingly endless campaign that leads up to your Presidential poll.

The shitter is that we used to laugh a bit about how bitchy, vitriolic and character/personality based US campaigns were to the outsider but now, after 13 years of "Making Britain Dumber" (Copyright, The Labour Party) it seems we have gone the same way. Personality, rather than issues, are coming to the fore.

Arse!

Having re-read that post I feel I should clarify that I was not insinuating that American's are dumb when it comes to politics, far from it, simply that campaigning in the US frequently seems designed to supply soundbites targeted at the lowest common denominator.
