Moderated Posting

ETA: This no longer applies - it's a remnant from Livejournal.

Due to the increase in spam posts in various communities, this community has been placed on temporary moderated posting. I'm not willing to expose the members of this comm to unexpectedly NSFW pictures.

This has nothing to do with any current members; I'm just trying to avoid any problems.

Parental scolding

I've heard that US and English parents sometimes use their children's full names while scolding them. It's not at all common in Germany; so I'm wondering how parents from other countries handle that, especially European countries like France and Italy.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

a delicate question...

... to you good people of the US. Would a fifty year old man (mentioning no names *g*) say 'I need to go to the bathroom'? Or would he say something like 'I need to take a leak - have a piss' or something like that? I know all sorts of UK alternatives but not American. Any help gratefully received :)

British/American Translations

[livejournal.com profile] uisgich is visiting from Britain, so she and I came up with a list of terms that instantly identify an author as either British or American. I'm sure some people can add other things.

cut because the list got too long )

Google Maps Tip

If you go to Google Maps for the United States (http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&tab=wl) and then click on the 'street view' button, you will get a map of the United States with cameras in various places. Zoom in and you will be able to see actual video footage of that particular street.

There are several other places around the world that have the street view activated, so give it a try! Fascinating.

If your fic has a description of a place, use the street view to get an idea of what the place looks like.
