Here are a few of my favourite Americanisms: "Can you spare a square"? Contrary to pop culture, that question has absolutely nothing to do with toilet paper. Canadian members, feel free to take a stab at what they are asking for.

"That's pretty spendy". Yep, when there's just not enough time in the day to say "expensive".

And what's probably my all time favourite, "Can you borrow me $20?" Uh, yeah. And from whom would you like me to borrow it?
I've also been to places in the US where any carbonated soft drink is referred to as a "coke". Go to a restaurant for lunch and the waitress asks me what I'd like to drink. I tell her a coke. She asks what kind. I tell her "regular". She says, "But what kind? Orange? Root Beer? Ginger Ale? Cola?" And that wasn't the only place in the US I've heard coke used as a generic term for soda pop.

Every language and culture within a language has their own unique idioms and phrasing. Let's face it, how many Mid-westerners have ever used the term "gnarly" or "bodacious"?

Even advertising gets into the game. Remember around the turn of the century how everything was "extreme"? The word got so f*cking worn out that now everyone is using "epic" without having a clue what "epic" actually means. I don't give a damn how much effort you put into dinner, it's not going to be an "epic" meal. Bad b.o. is NOT "epic". Getting 12 inches of snow in one shot isn't an "epic snowfall". Well, maybe it would be if you lived in Florida or something.

I don't smoke anything nor do I drink booze. I had a margerita at a pool tournament awhile back and I passed out. The interaction between my medicine and alcohol kicked my butt. Never liked smoking dope. I didn't like the feeling.

I am however addicted to tostadas.

That feeling may have been what's colloquially known as "the 'noids". Was it sort of a paranoid feeling?

A feeling of no control. I didn't like it. I think I walked down the street in the dead of winter trying to sober up . Naw it's no bueno.

Fair enough. There is a percentage of people out there who have unpleasant, for lack of a better term, reactions to it. Of course if you're not a normal smoker and someone hands you joint of some Maui Wowie or something, you're going to get super baked and probably not enjoy it at all.
I had that happen to me once when I was still in high school. A buddy of mine had a joint of some stuff he said was called Monkey's Paw. It was kind of pinny but after the two of us smoked it, we were both completely gibbled. I haven't run across anything like it since. Too bad, I'd probably enjoy it more now. Although some of the medical pot has been pretty damn decent. There's even a few strands that have a genuine analgesic effect and less of a high. I love those kinds. They act like opiates in that they actually numb the pain without the horrid side effects of a narcotic pain killer.
I'm not trying to convince you to give it another try or nothing, to each their own. I actually like it because I can use it to compliment and some days even replace the other prescriptions I take, without worrying about contraindications.

The Lyrica and some tylenol helps some. I haven't taken any percoset for several weeks so maybe I'll just try to deal with the sore leg the best I can. I will say that without the lyrica the leg feels like it is on fire. If medical marijuana could help the leg pain without the high I'd try it. I pay $450 a month for lyrica maybe the pot would be cheaper.

" Druggies paying more tax so i don't have to"- How stupid can one get? And how do druggies get the extra money for tax? Sticking up 7/11s or hitting old grannies over the head?

Sure hope you are better soon, Ludlow, you've had a long stretch! Would a couple more medical opinions be in order? Hang in there, bud.

Real change for sure! We'll likely encounter lots of Pot heads as we drive down the highways! Better be careful what you wish for!

A cigarette. It's because back in the days of unfiltered cigarettes, the fags were so short that the standard package of 20 was square rather than rectangular. You understand that this "Americanism" is about as current as "the bee's knees" or lindy hopping, right?

Quote:

Not my favorite, but a fairly cute bit of slang. Unlike in Canada, where everyone speaks the Queen's English at all times.

Quote:

Even worse is "Can you loan me $20?" "Loan" is a noun. The verb is "lend."

Do you question the regional terms we use for phosphates? Next time you ask for a kleenex, I'll have to refuse you. I use Puffs tissues. And I can't make a xerox for you, because I have a Canon copier.

Is that little river out back a creek, a crick, a rill, a run, a stream, or an arroyo? Tell me and I'll tell you what part of the country you're from. Is a sandwich on a long, split loaf of bread a sub, a hero, a hoagie, or a grinder?

Advertising is probably the chief player in the game.

It is if you have to fight your way into Mordor to get it.

No, 30 cm of snow wouldn't be epic. It would, however, have a body count similar to most epics.

I don't smoke it either, would never smoke it unless it was prescribed, and even if it was prescribed, I'd probably smoke it only if I felt it necessary to do so.

I remember a physician prescribing me a painkiller and my first question was whether there was any opiod in it.

He answered no, but that it was still a mildly addictive medication. With that, I took it when I needed it but far less than prescribed, and as soon as I didn't need it anymore, I quit it. I'm not arrogant enough to think that I'm somehow immune to developing an addiction. If others can get addicted to it, then I accept that so could I. Why would I be stupid enough to get myself addicted to something unnecessarily?

When you are laying in bed at night and you are in so much throbbing pain you're in tears you'll take an opioid and be damn glad to get it.

Unfortunately, it may not help with the nerve pain in your leg. I'm on gabapentin for the same reason and weed doesn't do dick for it, but that's just me. I've heard others claim it does help them.
It does help with the stuff I take oxys and muscle relaxers for though.

I understand that, and that might be a time when I'd take an opiod. I'm just saying that I'd take it only as a last resort. Again, I'm not arrogant enough to believe that I'm somehow immune to addiction.

Well, considering the last time I heard, "Can you spare a square" was less than a decade ago, which was the last time I was in the US, I'd say it's a lot more current than "the bee's knees" or lindy hopping.

Well, the last time you heard "the bee's knees" was this morning, so there!

"Spare a square" is semi-ironic nostalgia-speak. The person you heard it from probably didn't know the origin either.

Some good cannabis would change your mind about this powerful medicinal.

Four plants per household eh. Right off the bat the governor proves they know squat about yield potential of one plant. It is possible to harvest up to ten or even eleven pounds per plant under optimum conditions.

There's a trick, you keep your plants in vegetative stage until you get it biggest then you flower.
