"Oh bloody hell its just a question no need to get all mardy." Every time you get miffed about questions assuming you're American, repeat that to yourself.

English people really say "bloody hell"? I thought only Spike and Giles from Buffy the Vampires said that.
20 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Monday 7/29/02 - 5:56:21 AM EST (GMT-5)
I say bloody quite often...in conjunction with other words such as...bloody bastard, etc!

You're..sorry...

Heh, my use of the word 'bloody' is only in the literal sense, as in, "you're about to become a horrifically bloody corpse." On the topic at hand - I fail to see why a question can't assume whatever it wants (including, but not limited to, race, gender, sexual orientation, education, social status, income level, or degree of stupidity). Obviously the question is targetting a certain audience, and you just didn't make the cut.
