  • British People: Are you guys just always drunk and punching each other all the time?

    Please explain this whole fighting culture to me.

    We had that in high school where everyone was wound up so tight they were always looking for a fight but that calmed down after some time.

    You guys feel walking around is a normal thing to do or is it a chore cause you feel like you gotta be ready to rumble at all times?

    Of course this varies by city and part of the city but I would enjoy hearing some real experiences of your daily life and if it resembles our Wal-mart just less obese LOL

    Even the Queen gets in on it after a few gins.
    One day Canada will rule the world, and then we'll all be sorry.

      Main reason from my experience is that pubs traditionally close with last orders at 11pm. So people get liquored up double quick before going on somewhere else like a club, and then some guy was eyeing up me bird so I had to lamp him, innit?

            I'm grammar schooled, so I can barely even do my own accent.

                Having spoken with people that grew up in england and were responsible for public order, I was bewildered that they were bewildered that people here don't get drunk and punch eachother.
                I'm an exception maybe but I have never punched another

                  My theory is that Brits are wound up so tight from having to be so “proper” all the time that they have no outlet for anger as they are taught to suppress their emotions

                  combine that with liquor and it just all explodes

                  Plus all the bad weather leads to low vitamin D and hormonal imbalances therefore starting an empire just to get a tan (usually burned tho)

                  i don’t see Scandinavians acting this way though and their weather is just as bleak

                    You think Brits are all aristocracy or from the 19th century? #JekyllandHyde

                          I talk like aristocracy, but I'm as working class as they come.

                              The Americans seem to have taken up the habit of punching one another all the time, and with gusto.
