>We ask italian smalltown doctor where the next qualified surgeon is
>"Hmmm, does no look bad. Just go home and rest."
At this point my brother cries like a fucking banshee who stepped on a lego, so we say fuck it and find the next major hospital ourselves.
They immediately operate him.
Turns out he was on the verge of death, we had like 15 minutes more to bring him into surgery.

The only way I could make your shit region any worse is if I somehow managed to make you trailer trash hicks less educated, more obese or more inbred. Or more attracted to your sister. Which isn't mathematically possible.
You traitors should get down on your knees and kiss our feet for blessing your impoverished shithole with tourism dollars
Well, he was probably 400lbs so there was a lot of man at least... not sure how effective he would be against gommies considering all it takes to outrun the average american is to walk at a leisurely pace.

Maine here, we're not annoying. In fact, American tourists are the most respectful about foreign cultures, most interested in history and architecture, most prone to spend money on traditional food (inb4 >fat meme) and just good to be around. I've travelled all over my ancestors' homeland (mainly Northern Germany and Sweden) and believe me, everyone was more than happy to see my friendly face.
Stop demonising Americans, we're the good guys.

Ive probably killed a few.
TL note: if you dont know what inala is, then let me phrase it this way. There is a city to inala line, but there is no inala to city line.
Still doesn't beat the chinks who try to bring in fresh vegetables and packets of weird gunk
I don't live there anymore, but I've got relatives on both sides of the family who live too far from the nearest proper town to get fresh groceries. The worst was some property meant for a national park employee, literally had to have giant freezer bins full of food.

It has happened a number of times and I'm pretty sure none of the people found their way.
Air is uncountable. You could try to find better examples.
True, but dust by itself isn't.
The mistake the German dude did was not saying "LEGO bricks" and not capitalizing LEGO, anyway.
How do you not know your own fucking language?
The singular of Legos is Lego.
A Lego is countable.
Therefore, the phrase 'I stepped on a Lego' is both grammatically and syntactically correct.
You literally just got told how to speak your language by French and Italians. I hope you're happy

>Serbian tourist asks me for directions
>point towards Serbia
>British tourist asks me for directions
>I tell him that I don't know where the prostitutes are and that he shouldn't walk around naked and urinating over people's cars
Brits don't want to work them and it doesn't take a genius to fry potatoes and fish.
Probably right an the second but at least in the states it is in no way profitable or safe to try and do shady things if you aren't cartel or the occasional meatball.
>obvious tourists looking at a map and discussing where to go
>i'm walking along, they stop me and ask me where some building is

no malicious intent though, i just don't give a shit
Czech tourists being crazy maniacs is something one could literally not make up. I remember reading somewhere that they have the highest death rate of all tourists in Europe.
We don't hear about Poles being like that here.
Kek not the poster but my neighborhood has a place called Hocks and Hops. Its bacon and other pork products and beer. There is also a really good pork-centered restaurant in Williamsburg called Traif that due to the name caused the Hasidic to loose their collective shit over.

Not him but I never go to your poor hell holes. From you fuckers comming up North, I've met enough of you to know your politeness/kindness is just a load of shit. Also you're usually fat fucks.

I once spent 30 min guiding some bulgarian guy to a hotel because I felt so bad I couldn't express where or how to get somewhere that was literally 'walk half mile, turn left and another quarter mile'
I've lived here whole life but can't give directions for shit. Also I could have lead the guy down an ally and fucking raped him, why the hell are foreigners so trusting?
>sinistroide tourist ask me for directions

Somebody did this to me and a friend of mine.
We saw him again later that day, we threw him onto a river, good luck, retard.
Your point was that 'Lego' is countable, which it isnt. That means you are supporting the point that 'Legos' is correct whether you write it or not.
Your other point about me writing 'Legos' is silly, I need to write the word to discuss it and I have been using apostraphes to show that is a phrase that I am writing about and am not writing out normally.
Are you OP?
You better hope they don't see you again, you know how violent we like to be.
>Met with banter on the net
>Makes threats of physical violence
No, I really did it, and would do it again.
Give bad directions, you go for a swim.
It works as an adjective, you can say "a lego brick" but you can't say "a legos brick"
On the other hand, if you just say "legos", it's a noun (here, a pronoun, since the brand is used instead of "(lego) bricks").
>No rivers or water around my place
What now, tough guy?

why on /int/ italians always bash americans but in real life italy has a higher approval rating for america than poland and any other european country?
also why does italy have a high aproval rating for america? poland like sus because we hate commies and russians but italy's only connection to america is columbus and the mob
Its not an adjective and doesnt work like one; its an uncountable noun. When you say "lego car" thats a whole noun and not an adjective-noun.
Because my point is that its completely wrong and makes you sound retarded, not that its not understood.
dirt bath, tie you to a tree with your shoelaces, we can get creative if we need to
>No trees in a 10 miles radius
What now, cherry boy
>but in real life italy has a higher approval rating for america than poland and any other european country?
this is what your stupid propaganda tells you
only a bunch of libtards here are pro-america
and not even all of them
>>No trees in a 10 miles radius
What, are you on a mountain?
I roll you off it.
Stop embarrassing yourselves please.
You can't say legos as a plural form of a brand, but you could say legos as a plural form of a pronoun, or for an epithet in some other cases, but it wouldn't have the same meaning. If you mistake the second for the first, of course it won't be correct.
I don't think you live in Italy, I think you live on the moon.

just look at political parties here
all the right wing is pro-Russia (Berlusconi historically, LN e FdI since a couple of years )
M5S surely is not pro-America, not even a bit
only part of the leftist cuck traitor of PD are pro-America, pro-EU, pro-NATO and all this shit
most probably the next government we are going to have will be clearly anti-USA
believe what you prefer to believe
When it replaces the noun "brick".
How the fuck my English is better than an English gentleman? I have to fix that fast, or French people's cover will be blown and we'll have to speak English correctly with tourists from now on. "Honhonhon. Je ne understand pas le English."

The only Euros I see are students.
I tried helping a foreign girl once but i too had just moved to this city.
I suppose if more could afford to vacation here I would be asked directions more. Which I would nicely give.
I have known of people giving assholes directions directly to the hood.

I'm still friends with them. What a bunch of nice people.
The only niggers you will found at eiffel tower are the ones selling those shit tiny versions of it.
Barbes however is literally designated shit street tier. No wonder why kebabs and niggers spend theit time there
They are basically North Italians who speak a slightly different language.
Thick slavic accent, they are almost always quiet and reserved until they are sure they can trust you.
Noisy, they behave like they own the place, make a fuss as soon as something is slightly different from their customs like when they see metric or the day/month/year being used, make their status painfully obvious by having their flag on their clothes, asking where the nearest Mc Donald is, etc.
Often they don't even look like they give a shit about the place they are visiting.
>Indian tourist asks me for directions to the nearest designated shitting street
>Give him directions to the loo
in Italy it would be difficult considering that most of leftists are racist and culturally conservative too
Vist France have a good time meet some decent folk. Sitting at Cafe see some fat couple walking past some restaurants and this guy in a fedora. He is also wearing a weird black over coat making a face that kinda looks like a frog shortly after he gave some money to Muslims rapeugees

can't wait to see this exact same thread in 4 hours
No. Here, lego is an epitet of lego bricks. If you were only referring to the word by itself, it would be a noun, but you have take into account that it replaces "lego brick" in this instance.
Isn't it normal to use a diminutive or a shorter version of a noun when possible?
I'm not going to spend the whole evening debating how loose English is. If you're still not convinced, look into it by yourself.
Made me laugh out loud desu.
I miss the days when yanks on /int/ used to be incredibly easy to bait and would argue all the fucking time. I think you lot are starting to understand bants.

This was before the November attacks. My affection for Americans grew a lot that day. Ended up eating lunch with them, and making them visit two museums in that week end. Told me I could come see them in the US whenever I wanted, and we stayed in contact. They insisted on talking to me via Skype the day after the attacks, almost just to be sure I was alright.
Great people. And they keep saying I should come visit, so I might do it.
Actually if you stub and break your toe, the classic advice is it's too expensive to bother going to the doctor over since it'll probably heal on its own anyways
That's what my mom said once when I thought I might have and my toe was hurting for weeks, turns out it did heal up on its own anyways
"Legos" is commonly used. Just because the company doesn't want you to use it as a plural so it doesn't end up as a genericized trademark doesn't mean it's incorrect.
Do you refuse to use plural forms of all brand names? Do you say Mac computers instead of Macs? Do you refer to cars as Audi cars rather than Audis, Porche cars rather than Porches, etc?

I also remember once while travelling by bus a couple of really talkative chilean chicks were saying how much they missed their country and how they disliked the people here, also mocking the accent. Everyone on the bus just silently looked at them until they got off
>go to Africa
>oh geeze Harold, look at all these minorities
Except its not commonly used, its an American only thing. Its a mass proper noun and saying Legos makes you sound like a retarded child who cant speak properly. Your examples are stupid because those are not mass nouns. Imagine saying "I have dusts in my house" because thats what you sound like
