    It was quite a nasty to do, the police were involved, a lot of soldiers were questioned and questions asked in Parliament. It wasn't quite the lowest point of Morgan's career, that would have been phone hacking a teenage murder victim's phone, her parents saw that the texts and voicemail had been opened and it brought hope she was alive but of course she was dead.

    I have also done Judo, and your response didn't answer my question.

    Look there are martial arts that don't punch people in the face. And I fully support the idea.

    Hipsters have to train somewhere.

    ? In the UK 'hipsters' are jeans that sit on your hips ( not the baggy show your thong ones) instead of at the waist so that makes no sense.

    I've watched the Judo all day today from the heats to the finals, no punching necessary, they are absolutely warriors.

    I am sure the uk has all sorts of funny names for things.

    I eat a lot of shots from "collar grabs" and grip fighting. If you do contact you are going to have to deal with face punching.

    But yes judokas are absolute warriors.

    I know, in America, flats are shoes; in England, they live in those shoes. ;)

    In the US, a hoodie is a hooded sweatshirt. In the UK, quite different.

    In the US, shag is a type of 70s carpet. Quite different in the UK.

    Then there's the whole chips, lift, lorrie, et al confusion. And how are the dog's bullocks the best thing ever?

    And don't forget fanny bags, a very very different thing!

    'Lorry' not lorrie. "a truck; a long, flat wagon," 1838, British railroad word, probably from verb lurry "to pull, tug" (1570s).

    Commonly associated with the hood rat.

    Actually, I think shag is one term most Americans recognize.

    Well, if you're the dog, I can see how you might think that...

    I just looked up the origin of dogs bollox. Makes sense in its own way.

    A shag is also a rather nice bird, a relative of the cormorant.

    I thought those were small sticks and cigarettes. One of the funniest moments in my life was the first time a British friend of mine said he was "going out to smoke a fag."

    Yeah, fags are cigarettes, faggots are either meatballs or bundles of wood.

    On the back of the Mercury dime is that bundle of sticks known as a faggot or fasces in some circles.

    People like to call it the No True Scotsman Fallacy.

    No real (insert group here) would ever do/say (controversial statement or action).

    But I'd say, this thread's favorite fallacy is the ad hominem.
