Lower driving age/no license required

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

according to the 'internet', it seems it's 'more' English....

Supple term used to describe activities or chat that is playful, intelligent and original. Banter is something you either posses or lack, there is no middle ground. It is also something inherently English, stemming as it does from traditional hi-jinks and tomfoolery of British yesteryear.
"You, sir, are drunk"

"Maybe so but you are ugly and I will be sober in the morning"

"Good banter sir"


http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=banter

(several other interesting 'banter' terms here as well)

so there's that....


just sayin'

it is a British thing, there is no such thing as American banter,
its the British sense of humour, Americans generally are too sensitive

this is banter gold

"its the British sense of humour, Americans generally are too sensitive."

Well bullshit. More British snobbery based on an ignorance of the rich tradition of humor in America. Besides the more refined repartee we have international contributions galore. One example is the black "yo mama" jokes from their riff of "playing the dozens.". Most British humor we find "too dry". We Americans won't laugh not because we don't get it but rather because we find it unfunny. A kind of slapstick for constipated people. Mr. Bean pictures exemplify this flat dry humor quite well. Fine for three-year-old children.

As a french and worst best friend of your two nations, I can objectively tell that you mainly find it unfunny because you still don't get it...

One can't buy back 2000 years of written civilization. Now don't tell trump about that, he would most probably try to fool you into thinking it is not only possible but that he will choose the gold plated option for no additional cost, since Europe should pay for it anyway.

"One can't buy back 2000 years of written civilization. "

We didn't " buy it back" we inherited it. All school kids in America read Chaucer and Shakespeare. Which brings to mind these words from Chaucer for yet another European snob, "Speek sweet bird, I know not where thou are at". Not verbatim and somewhat modernized, but a literate person will know the reference.

By the way the last time England made me laugh was the Brexit vote.

Here's the original, ""Spek, sweete bryd, I noot nat where thou art.""

I admit we do struggle with Beowolf, it must have been written by a bard from. Northern England.
