    Accents eh? how about a gal with a french accent? Can't top that. And as for american accents I find those southern gals pretty charming. I mean, which red-blooded male wouldn't want the likes of Daisy Duke( remember her?)to rotate his tires? Or change his oil for that matter!
    I've been to a few places and you can find accents good and bad anywhere. I suppose it boils down to personal taste or how low you have the volume on your hearing aid .

    I'm also glad everyone doesn't sound like The Nanny, I find that annoying. I'm from the southwest, I don't really know if I sound any different from other americans (execpt New yorkers).
    I get what you mean about everyone asking if your an aussie, I have a friend (who's an aussie) and everyone thinks he's british.

    DarthMalt, considering I am currently studying Grapes of Wrath, that little tirade was a little too much **shudders**

    Accents = sexy?
    2 words.
    RUSSIAN WOMEN! (I'm talking the old Bond women like the one from Goldeneye... **proceeds to drool** arghhhhh...)

    Gross generalisation aside, it is fair to label the MAJORITY (not by any means all) of Americans as stupid.
    1) Guy with least amounts of votes is sworn in as their president. Makes sense.
    2) believe Australians all ride kangaroos to work and that Canadians have flapping heads when they talk. (South Park is the number 1 American educational institution.)
    3) THEY FIND STEVE IRWIN ENTERTAINING!!!!!!!!
    4) G.W.BUSH Quote: "If you teach a child to read, chances are he will pass a literacy test."
    **End American bashing mode**
    sorry to any Americans who ARE smart, though a rare breed, i am aware that you DO exist!

    Have you ever noticed, the girls in every Bond film, are always gorgeous? Even the old ones. I particulary liked From Russia with Love.

    No, we only think your politicians and most people who end up being interviewed on CNN are stupid. :)

    I HATE GOERGE W. BUSCH
    I have a t shirt of the stupid things he said "I believe the human bieng and the fish can coexist together peacefully." or the classic "I know its hard to put food on your family." No wonder GL filmed the new trilogy in England and Australia not to mention Spain.
    Just so you know, here in the US the news people always interview the most ignorant people they can find. Just watch scary movie.

    This Halloweeen I dressed up like a stereotypical too go to my majority Republican school. They didn't even understand I was mocking them.

    I plan on moving overseas when I'm an adult.

    When a friend of mine was in the US a 10 or 11 year old came up to her and asked where she was from. She said she was Australian. Right, now do you know the kid asked her next?

    ............................(DRUM ROLL...)

    ..."Do you speak English on your planet?"

    Sigh. How stupid is that.

    As for sexy accents: Scottish, English and Irish..... yum. South African ones are pretty cool too.

    Personally I like American accents, as well as Americans in general, they're a nice and welcoming people. Everyone I met was great when I was there.

    Ignoring as instructed, HawkNC!

    Ah, this is great, such excitement mixed with multiculturalism tinged with a not so subtle blend of racism.

    Ah Australia!! what a place!!

    Well, you can't have multiculturalism without racism, that's like Big Kev without a Hawaiian shirt. But you're ignoring me, so I'll be quiet now.

    **sits quitely and unmovingly, blatently ignoring the mummuring coming from the other corner of this thread.**

    Bushisms -
    "The sole purpose of these terror attacks, is to terrify."
    "I might not know the specifics, but i am well aware of the finer details of the program."
    "The question that begs an answer is this: why are so many people faced with poverty?"

    **That last one was more subtle, but I find it more entertaining then anything else i could pull from the multitude of quotes.**

    But it's okay guys, we realise that he's different. He's from Texas, and not really a normal American. It's probably all the oil fumes.

    Yes, he's not a "normal American" like that skirt chasing white trash president we had to endure for the last 8 years. It's too bad Clintons Democratic administration was not able to solve poverty and heal race relations. I thought Democrats were perfect.

    I'll end my rant now. You have to forgive me, I'm from Florida where we can't vote, think straight or read. Have a nice day.

    Don't feel too bad. Despite all the jokes there's plenty of aussies like myself who think Bush is a huge step up from Clinton.
