I went on Omegle again last night. I always think if I can get just one American to Google Sandi Toksvig, it is worth all the effort.
You’re now chatting with a random stranger. Say hi!
You: Is this the place where I can talk about anvils?
Stranger: we can if you desire to
You: I don’t really know much about anvils.
You: Could you tell me a bit about them?
Stranger: theyre great for blacksmithing
Stranger: and attempts at cruching trolling roadrunners
Stranger: and makeshift anchors 😀
You: I think I would like one.
You: I wonder if there are any websites where I could obtain one.
Stranger: amazon migh
You: I don’t think I’d want a used anvil.
Stranger: im not too sure what section it would be in
You: Anvils, I suppose.
You: I am from the United Kingdom. We do not have walmart.
You: We have ASDA.
You: Which is owned by walmart.
Stranger: thn how do you laugh at disgusting people?!
Stranger: besides watching americanTV
You: We read special books.
Stranger: what does ASDA stand for?
You: I do not know. I’m hoping one of the As stands for Anvil.
You: I love anvils.
You: Although I do not know much about them.
Stranger: useful to have
You: You have been very helpful, though.
Stranger: anytime bud
You: Are you an expert on anvils?
Stranger: i know a thing or two :p
You: It’s good to know. Do all Americans have anvils? Like you all have guns?
You: And comic books.
Stranger: not all people do, and its a damn shame they dont
You: And listen to jazz.
Stranger: guns, depends on you POV
You: Hard bop!
You: Are guns different depending on your POV? I suppose they are.
You: Always point them away from yourself.
Stranger: i personally believe in my right to bare arms unless your playing russian roulette
You: Me too. Especially when it is warm.
Stranger: your English correct?
You: I did not think that you would play Russian games in the Americas.
You: Yes, I am.
You: And it is.
You: Are you an American?
Stranger: What part of the UK?
You: I live in a place called Sheffield.
Stranger: Sheffield, eh? ive heard of that place
You: Me too! I live there!
Stranger: i am from the great state of Texas
Stranger: NO WAY :O
You: Is it true that lots of Americans live in Texas?
You: This is what we hear over here.
Stranger: 36 million
You: That’s loads!
Stranger: nah, theyre starting to move more southwest
You: I expect the numbers vary from day to day.
Stranger: the California area
You: Are there still cars in America?
You: No, that’s not right.
Stranger: yeah, and trucks too!
You: You call them autogyros?
You: Something like that.
You: No, that’s not it.
Stranger: everyday words are cars and trucks
You: We have them in this country.
You: People drive around in them.
You: Not children, though. We say to children, “You must not drive the big cars, trucks, etc.”
You: Some of them have toy cars that they can sit in.
You: But they can’t go on our motorways.
You: (Motorways are like big roads.)
Stranger: for most states the mimimum age is 16
You: (Without shops, although sometimes there are motorway service stations. The best one is at Tebay.)
You: We allow all ages in our country.
Stranger: even gays?
You: What do the states that don’t allow children do with their children?
Stranger: they get rides from people or take the bus
You: Yes, even gays are allowed in our country. One of them, a woman called Sandi Toksvig, even presents The News Quiz on Radio 4.
You: Rides out of the state?
Stranger: i love queers? you?
Stranger: what do you mean by that?
You: Do you get Radio 4 in America?
You: What do I mean by what?
Stranger: “rides out of state”
Stranger: and im not sure
You: You said that people under 16 aren’t allowed in some states. I just wondered where they lived.
Stranger: im not positive
You: This is confusing. I preferred it when we were talking about anvils. I knew where I was with anvils.
Stranger: with parents or legal guardians’
You: But they can’t live in the state?
Stranger: they can
Stranger: they just cant drive a vehicle
You: Have I got this wrong? You said, and I’ll just copy and paste. Hang on.
You: “for most states the minimum age is 16”
Stranger: yes, you must at least 16 to drive a vehicle
You: Oh, that’s a relief!
You: Only backwards.
You: I was wondering what sort of country Texas was.
Stranger: a grand country
Stranger: except for the slavery, but yes. we were quite prosperous
You: Is it mountainous, or flat like the Netherlands?
You: How many trees are there?
You: Rough estimate.
Stranger: its slowly becoming more urban
Stranger: we have deserts, mountains, lakes
Stranger: and miles of coastland
You: What about the trees, though? How many are there?
Stranger: im not too sure
You: Can we do this next time? The Cabinet are coming in and I have to get out of the PM’s seat.
Stranger: how would you contaact me
You: My name is Nick. I will give you more details next time.
You have disconnected.
