And you expect someone to summarise the British vocabulary into a single post? Dude... I'm good but I'm not THAT good.

PM Mistress_Ibanez, she'd probably do it.

I think what he tried to say is he would like British UGers to post some of the slang you use (definitions woul be nice too)

TS, I don't know much and I'm not british but.

Fag: Cigarette
Chav: similar to wigger I think
Bin: Trash can
innit: Contraction of isn't it
Going in a bender (I'm not totally sure if it's only a british thing):Going out drinking with friends and stuff
Flat: Apartment
No muerde, no calla
Sin sangre no hay arte
Nada ni nadie

Oh, I use it, but only in fun. I've never heard it used in a non-ironic way.
