Interesting how so much Euro-slang has stayed the same compared to ever-changing American slang.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Don't feel bad Paul, I was born in England and didn't leave 'till I was 35 and I only got 34!!!, Some of the possible answers were ambiguous.

I feel pretty good about getting 32 then Harry. I think we Canucks have a bit of an advantage as being a Commonwealth country. Some of those sayings are/were used here.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
