    ...What you guys dont have omelettes? 🇳🇴 Add cheddar and they are even better! Or perhaps your omelettes are just...different...from ours.

    Im glad you like our pancakes cheers

    also "Oom-nom-nom-lette" lol wut? lol

    No we do have omelettes, all sorts of different types. It's just that my tiny mind was blown by the sheer scale of the thing. If I order an omelette in the UK it's generally not comparable in size to a small aircraft carrier.

    Om-nom-nom-lette is a word of my own creation, I'm glad you like happy

    lol an omelette should have a bare minimum of 4...ok ill say 3 eggs but for me its 4. Then it must be LOADED with your favorite meats/cheeses. I also like onions and jalapenos in mine. so it should at least be the size of a frigate.

    In case you are wondering how fat i am right about now im 6'1(about 185cm?) and 150lbs.(68kg?) So no im not the sterotypical fat American i just eat alot for a skinny guy..though i will probably have a heart attack at at 32.

    Now that's an omelette! I'm fatter than you at 190lbs and similar height. So still not fat.

    Tolvo, not sure you were supposed to give out our top secret presidential plans. We're still a few presidents away from that you know. Obama is bummed because they're not done with the suit yet.

    lol 190 is what i weighed back when i worked out 5-6 days a week. At our height 190 is a good weight.

    Right now im underweight...its unhealthy really. I REALLY need to start working out again.

    Mh, what about pancakes? I've got a friend bringin' me those pancakes mix from USA, do normal people cook them like that or homemade? :shock:

    Most people use the mix..bisquick is the most popular brand i think...but it doesnt really matter.

    So you guys dont have pancakes?:affraid: Add afew drops of vanilla to yer mix its quite good...though pancakes are awesome anyways.

    It's true, no pancakes here sad Some stores sell a pancake mix but it's a bit different from the ones I get from USA.
    BUT a lot of awesome food anyway cheers

    Fact n.1: I bet nobody knows that even in Italy you can eat the original pizza only at Naples. It's a matter of dough and toppings.
    Fact n.2: We don't have pepperoni, stop adding it to pizzas! :affraid:

    My mom put pepperoni in spaghetti sauce.....a tradition I proudly carry on to this day on occasion (when my sauce isn't basically meat with a touch of tomatoish substance).

    Don't forget that you need at least one side item like hash browns or toast or a muffin with your omelette.

    Skare, hopefully one day I'll get to be the president, so I can fight my Vice President as he tries to start a revolution, in a giant mecha.

    "Tolvo, you must die now, for America!"

    "No, I shall live on even if this bodies dies, as the spirit of America!"

    "AMERICA!"

    "AMERICA!"

    That should be every presidential election, the two candidates that matter just screaming America at the top of their lungs, whoever can America better gets to be the president.

    Sadly that would tell us a lot more about their convictions than the current debates.

    Current U.S. political debate format for non-americans translation:

    Guy asking questions (GAQ): "Politician #1, How do you feel about such and such?"
    Politician #1: "Well sir, I believe that (insert noncommittal middle of the road politically correct comment here)"
    GAQ: "Politician #2, your response?"
    Politician #2: "Well, it's like this (insert comment that seems almost identical to politician #1's but said in a way that makes it sound like the first guy is a moron)"
    GAQ: "That's all the time we have."

    Vegetas? What the hell, are those even edible? They look like the plastic toys that come in my cereals.

    During the summer, I always take a trip to the mountains in Colorado.

    There is a little restaurant that has an omelette bar for breakfast...

    They are huge, nearly a foot long, and you can get as many as you want.

    So delicious.

    Sadly, I've never finished one.


    *edit* I almost forgot to add, all I put in the omelette is Meat a Cheese cause I am an America.

    And olives but don't tell anybody..

    You must not be familiar with popular American cereals. Although Cap'n Crunch does present a certain sense of poise and dignity. He is a Cap'n an' all.

The green ones are terrible(pretty much tasteless yet mange to have a bad after taste) the red ones are good...and i dont remember what the yellow ones taste like so i must not like them. I know you guys were joking but...well im bored.

    They are a secret delicacy here big grin

    I tried a habanero raw once. I woulda nailed it but the involuntary hiccups made it impossible to swallow. Peppers can be good in all seriousness.
