    To an English or British person speaking standard British English, which accent would be closer to their own: the American English accents or the Australian English accent(s)?
    Neither sounds anything like my own. An Australian would have a better shot at understanding me, though. Americans usually can, but continental Europeans can't.

    Australians sound similar to people from Essex, which sounds nothing like the Yorkshire accent, but the US accent doesn't sound like any British accent, so I'd say Australians sound like some English people (i.e. ones from the SE), and Americans sound like none.

    English people don't usually bother with r's at the ends of things, just as Bostonians don't. Southerners prolong 'a' sounds, but not at the end of words (with or without r's), so I don't really know what that other accent could be, except from a county adjoining Devon.

    Neither sound anything like my own, either, having a funny combination of West Lancastrian and Scouse...

    None the less, I would say Australian's have an accent much closer to that of British English than do Americans. Of course, American accents are diverse too however I've never heard one that I've thought sounds particularly English.

    It feels as though today British English is spoken by an upper middle class minority, one that's dotted around the country and primarily in the south, rather than being regionalised in any way.

    ^ where is the stupid question after your answer.?

    Oh well I guess I must ask the same one as no one decided to answer it the first time.

    How many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop?
    Life is like a fire hydrant- sometimes you help people put out their fires, but most of the time you just get peed on by every dog in the neighborhood.

    Didn't realise it was a requirement, perhaps should have read the OP

    None the less my post was in response to a post which was posted in response to my previous post which indeed contained a stupid question...

    I don't have a clue what a tootsie pop is but assuming it's like a lolly pop I'm going to say well over 200! I reckon it takes alot more than you'd think.

    What on earth is going on with the weather and why are we having a heat wave when snowfall is apparently going to begin next month? It almost is next month.

    Yeah, I didn't know it was a requirement either. Ok, well, the answer to the hot thing is -- I don't know. It's been like this for the last couple of years. Nice spring, rubbish summer, decent autumn, amazing winter (if you love snow, like I do).

    My question: What would you do if you found out your name was Colin, and you'd been living a lie all your life (unless your name really is Colin, in which case change the name in the question to 'Keith')?

    Only an experienced eye can see the obvious Mongoloid admixture.
    I'm guessing Polish.

    1) If you were granted one wish by a very powerful wizard, and you were confined to turning non-White groups White, which non-White group would you turn White?

    2) If you can't grow a full beard, are you then less likely to go bald?

    subraces which tend to bald more than others, are hairier than others.
    it's just statistic, but every "pattern" is possible on individual.
